My five year old daughter just adores this holiday movie so much - she refused to let me put it away with the rest of the Christmas stuff! In the story, a little Teddybear gets his smile sewn on upside down by mistake. Because of this "factory error" he is passed up at the department store, ending up instead, at an out-of-the-way second hand store where he meets an interesting assortment of characters! The Tangerine Bear really is a very cute, heartwarming, and "watchable" movie. Toss in some great messages such as: "our differences make us special" and "there's no place like home" and you have the makings of a perfect little kid's movie! Even as an adult, you can't help but get an "awwwwww" sort of feeling when the happy ending comes - no matter how many times you see it (and trust me, I've seen it MANY, MANY TIMES)! If you were wondering about this movie, well, wonder no more! It is definitely one worth owning!

As an avowed teddy bear lover, I purchased this video because the little bear on the cover looked simply darling. I was not disappointed. Tangie is a most adorable bear. Singer Trisha Yearwood narrates the story and sings two lovely songs; I especially love "Lookin' For a Place to Belong". The animation, from the teddy bear factory to the adventures at Winkle's store, is a visual treat. Children will definitely love this movie, but it also contains some important messages, such as love, caring, and a sense of family and belonging, for people of all ages.

My three sons (ages 6,3 and 1) love this story. The Tangerine Bear is full of thoughtful lessons. They received this as a Christmas gift, but they watch it year round. It is more than just a Christmas story. Children root for the misfit toys and cheer at the end, when the toys figure out that they already have a home. A MUST SEE. If you have children (or adults that prefer good wholesome movies) on your gift list, this video is a wonderful addition to anyone's collection

I did not hear of this movie when it was released and only bought it because I came across it (on DVD) in a local store for $3.99 and figured I couldn't go wrong at that price, especially with Tom Bosley, David Hyde Pierce and Jonathan Taylor Thomas on board. I was pleasantly surprised. I think it has a nice story line, good characters and nice music (good job with narration and songs, courtesy of Trisha Yearwood). My daughter wanted to watch it over and over and over. We even made Tangerine Bear cut out cookies that year! She loved it so much I went back and bought another copy to add to my niece's Christmas gift. When my niece opened it her mother was astonished, "How did you know she LOVES this movie, we get it from the library all the time!?" (We shared the cookies too!) I bought it for my niece based on my daughter's reaction and it turned out to be a good call. So from a child's stand point it is fabulous, and this mom is fond of it too. Don't expect Disney animation, more like Saturday morning cartoons, but I'd pay full price if I hadn't found such a deal.

The Tangerine Bear is a non-offensive, delightful, short Christmas film with memorable songs. And another good thing about it, Nashville's Trisha Yearwood narrates the story and does the vocals.
Like a fascinating book, it's the kind of entertainment that you don't want to end.
I am buying the VHS, from Amazon, right away.
Merry Christmas,

We watched The Tangerine Bear, and both my 2 yr. old and 7yr. old loved it. It is a nice, heartwarming story; reminds me of the movies I used to watch when I was a kid. Highly recommend it to other parents of little ones.

My 3 year old daughter loves this movie. We borrowed it from a friend (VHS Format) and enjoyed it so much that we purchased the DVD. After placing the order with Amazon, I read a review which indicated problems with the DVD format. I just want to let anyone who is interested know that the DVD which we received works just fine, and we have enjoyed multiple viewings with our daughter. It is a terrific holiday movie.
