Format: DVD
Having bought a whole handful of DVD's (Tweenies, Thomas the Tank Engine & Maisy) to keep my active 2 year old daughter occupied for more than a few minutes - this is definitely my favourite and she loves it too. And what's more I feel I am introducing her to great literature and British culture and history all at once (which, whatever their good points, you can hardly say about any of the other DVD's) . Not just great entertainment (which it undoubtedly is) but education too ie. Less guilt factor for the stressed out parent when using a DVD as a babysitter. Hurray!
The DVD consists of 3 episodes of about 25 minutes each - just long enough to have a welcome break from toddler watching but not too long to feel you are allowing them to become square-eyed couch potatoes. Each episode is clever blending of 2 of Beatrix Potter classic books for children. Tales featuring some of her best known characters are included in this DVD; Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, The Flopsy Bunnies, Mrs Tittlemouse, Tom Kitten and Jemima Puddleduck . The animation is really exquisite, with superbly witty characterisation and attention to detail, and so completely true to the originals that it is a pleasure for even the keenest Beatrix Potter fans to watch them. No disappointments or nasty surprises as with so many book-to-film adaptations. There are a few slightly scary moments to beware of for younger children (e.g when Mr McGregor chases Peter ) but once the episode has been watched a few times it loses it's scariness.
Each episode starts and finishes with a beautifully acted 2-3 minute live action introduction with Niamh Cusack as Beatrix Potter and this adds welcome variety and interest and is beautifully filmed at Beatrix Potters House in the Lake District.

If you ever have a problem entertaining those troublesome tots (or teens!) forget Teletubbies and Tweenies, all you need is one thing - Beatrix Potter. Over the years children can't help but feel enchanted and entrigued by the many animals that she has brought to life in her stories, the famous of course being Peter Rabbit. Potter was a very talented story writer but not just that, because all of her stories were accompanied by fine beautiful art work. I was delighted to hear that some kind person decided to translate these beautiful stories and art work onto film when I was told Peter Rabbit was to be shown on TV several years ago. Now everyone can see Beatrix's characters and scenery 'brought to life', thanks to the producers of these animations, as they provide perfect-casting voices accompanied with lovely music setting the atmosphere. Now that they are available on this fine DVD set they can be enjoyed again and again through generations! Perfect for Sunday afternoon/Rainy Day viewing (or indeed anytime!) ENJOY THE MARVELLOUS TALENT THAT AWAITS YOU!

This is a lovely DVD. I cant wait for my granddaughter to get just that bit older (she is 16 months) so she can watch it. She loves the first part where it shows the dog, the geese and the rabbit but she is still a bit young to watch it at length.

I particularly like the music at the start in this film and how you see the kids walking and Beatrice walks into the house; and then how she reads the story and it then fades into the animation. I like Peter Rabbit story best because i like rabbits and it is funny to see animals wearing clothes for small children, however i don't think it is for anyone except kids. Although the films are good i think it cost too much; couldn't they have also sold them seperately. I also saw the TV Series which is why i would buy the videos
