This review is from: The Snowman/Father Christmas [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD was delivered via Amazon to my daughter's home in London ahead of schedule, which was a wonderful surprise because it was the busy Christmas season. My husband and I have taken our small grandchildren to see the stage production of "The Snowman" in London for the last 3 years. It's a wonderful show and all of the children in the audience are always awestruck and mesmerized by it -- they truly love it. We had been to the show just a few days before this DVD arrived in the post, so our granddaughter and grandson remembered the characters, the unforgettable music, the dancing jig, etc. We watched "The Snowman" DVD with them that night before their bedtime and it was incredible! It's so very simple, with not a single word spoken - just music -- yet it's so beautiful and magical. And unlike the stage production which features a scary black cat and a mean Jack Frost, the film version is all just goodness, imagination and wonder. Our grandchildren watched the video each night after that all through the Christmas season. They danced when the characters danced! This film version is apparently the original one. It's THE BEST!
