To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought this for my toddler, who is totally enchanted. Mastering for both audio and picture is excellent. Stories and skits top quality to boot. Why only four stars? Well, I am a bit disappointed that the magical theme song does not open each episode. And speaking of episodes, there are only five in all. I will purchase the first two volumes, though, despite these minor flaws.
What happened to the TV theme song and intro to all the episodes?! Every ep just cuts straight to the start of the program which I find very odd. Also the episodes on this collection are average at best and don't feature all the fav characters. Disappointing collection.
Still not entirely sure if I bought this for my 5 year old daughter or as a nostalgia purchase for myself. Regardless, we both love it and we have now purchased all three old school volumes. Great memories and now me and my daughter can both sing along to the pinball counting song.
Not just a trip down memory lane, but still relevant, culturally diverse and educational for today's kids. Ironically though, being from before the political correctness movement there's a "warning" that the content might not be suitable for young children.
