Animation, like childhood, can be full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the-top blockbuster-style special effects and just delivers up a collection of wonderful films full of simple joys. These films are suitable for children of all ages but are specifically aimed at 5-10 year-olds.
