Packed full of your favourite classic songs, this DVD will take you on a wonderful journey with Tom and Jerry as they soar over the rainbow and travel down the yellow brick road !
I've just sat down and watched a preview DVD of the new movie with the girls and I have to say I was very impressed. The girls weren't overly familiar with the story of The Wizard of Oz so I was pleased to see that it follows the original storyline very closely and introduces all the well-known characters.
But it also intertwines the classic story with traditional Tom & Jerry sequences, so you get the laughs from them fighting, getting squashed flat and running around after each other.
Both 10-year-old Sophie and 6-year-old Juliette watched it from start to finish without getting bored and wandering off, and even as an adult, I enjoyed watching it. The run time of about 45 minutes is the ideal length and it's a great price too, being marketed at under a fiver. Adults can get all nostalgic listening to the classic Oz songs including Somewhere Over The Rainbow and If I Only Had a Heart too.
There will also be a giveaway coming up right here on the blog next week where you can win a copyof the DVD too.
