I bought this for my 4 year old daughter, because I remember these stories from my own childhood in the seventies! They were just as good as I remembered, and my daughter enjoyed watching them as much as I enjoyed revisiting them, and they opened a dialogue between us where she learned a bit about her mom being a kid once too, so I was VERY happy to have bought this!

Wonderful DVD for children! The stories are fun and the animation is colorful. This is a great addition to the book. I recommend it to anyone with a child.

I am picky about the movies I let my kids watch. That being said, I find that these stories are wholesome, cute, and spark lots of conversation and spontaneous reenactments on the part of my two kids (4 & 2).

They are not mushy-gushy or knight/ princess hyper-sexist fodder. They are enchanting folk tales that arrive at the "moral of the story" in funny and surprising ways. I also recommend the book, "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears" by Verna Aardema. If you love this you might also love Julia Donaldson's books (and DVDs) "The Gruffalo" and "The Gruffalo's Child".

I rented this for my kids years ago from Family Video and wanted a copy of my own. The shipping was fast and the quality was great. Thanks!
