Editorial Reviews

Tangie, whose smile was accidentally sewn on upside-down, dreams of going home with a caring family. But when the Christmas season ends, he's disappointed to be shipped to Winkle's--a ramshackle thrift store full of other toys like him. But as the days pass, Tangie comes to realize that Mr. Winkle and the other toys are his family...and he's been home all along.

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.

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.

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

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.

The Tangerine Bear is a movie I’ve always seen on store shelves since it came out, and always had some interest in watching, yet I never got to it until today. Something about the cover caught my attention- a little orange bear with a frown, standing in the spotlight while surrounded by other toys. Since it appeared to view online along with other Christmas movies, I threw it in my queue and finally gave it a shot. Sadly, I didn’t see anything special about the movie, at least nothing that would make me even think about giving it 5 stars. The story of the Tangerine Bear is cute, but dragged out, and the dumbed down animation really make it feel longer than it is (just over 40 minutes). I get that not everyone is going to be content watching Christmas specials like Rudolph, Frosty and others, but I can think of at least a couple of newer ones that are more memorable than this. That being said, you could do way worse. The Tangerine Bear is just an average Christmas movie.

We open up with a bunch of stuffed bears in a factory being made and shipped off to toy stores. One of the bears gets flipped upside down on the conveyor belt and, as a result, gets an upside down smile when he goes into the machine that puts on smiles. This little bear is the last one left on the shelf when he arrives at a department store, and after no one buys him, he’s put on the clearance table. Time passes, and no one buys him even at the discounted price, so he’s sent off with other toys that were defective or missing something, and ends up at a local shop owned by an old man who sells all kinds of things. Here he meets a jack in the box who doesn’t like going into his box, a mermaid clock who isn’t exactly in-style any more, and a cuckoo clock that doesn’t cuckoo.
