The Quick Review
Disney World, Florida – Wonderful rides and glitzy shows, but with unavoidably long queues, is it really worth it? Andy described it as ‘heroically ersatz’… we are really not the target audience for Walt Disney World.
Winx Club – Horrific Italian-made TV show in which fairies-who-look-like-strippers fight witches for control of the world (and cute boyfriends). Absurdly inappropriate for young children, we suspect it may have been executive produced by Silvio Berlusconi. And yet, our girls REALLY love it.
Also on the podcast this month:
Hoodwinked! – Fantastic reimagining of the Little Red Riding Hood story that adults will enjoy as much as children. Don’t miss it. Age 6+.
Arthur and the Invisibles – Madonna does not buck her cinematic losing streak, this is a terrible film. Age 7+.
A Year Without Autumn – Liz Kessler’s latest book is as fast-paced and exciting as her Emily Windsnap series. Sure to be a hit with girls age 9 and above.
Alana Dancing Star – Arlene Phillips’ series of dance stories for girls are strictly good fun. Age 6+.
