Animation For Kids 2010
Animation has a lot to answer for! Turn on TV and there it is being pressed into service as a thinly disguised Trojan horse to sell the next new line of toys. Marvel at how it has convinced a lot of kids that a story can only be told in a gallop of five-second micro-bursts. This programme claims back some lost ground: wild tales, great characters, a colourful sprinkling of laughs and giggles, a catchy song or two, different ways to play with your food and plenty of surprises. These films are engaging, thought-provoking, and designed to nourish the imagination rather than saturate it.
