The Little Reindeer DVD review and giveaway

I do love a good kids film to get me in the Christmas spirit, and Abbey Home Media are releasing The Little Reindeer DVD, a lovely short film animation on 28th October.  We’ve been lucky to get a sneak preview.

The Little Reindeer DVDThe Little Reindeer DVD is based on the book of the same name, by Michael Foreman.  It’s an enchanting tale of a little boy and his friendship with a young reindeer.  Not just any reindeer mind you, this little chap belongs to Santa!

The Little Reindeer DVDThe Little Reindeer is an inquisitive little thing, and on Christmas Eve he goes exploring in Santa’s workshop, only to end up being accidentally gift-wrapped and being delivered as a Christmas present.

A little boy living in a block of flats in London finds the Little Reindeer on the roof and makes a home for him in the pigeon loft.

Monkey sat in total silence for the whole 26 minutes that The Little Reindeer DVD played.

The Little Reindeer DVDThe short film shows us the friendship between The Little Reindeer and the little boy, and the adventures they have, when they realise that the reindeer can fly! The film reminded me of The Snowman – no dialogue, but lovely animation and a heart warming tale.

Of course The Little Reindeer really doesn’t belong on the roof of a block of flats and Christmas soon comes around again…..

We both loved this little tale and it would make a lovely present for someone this Christmas.

  1. If I were a reindeer my name would be Chilly as I’m always cold, my nose would be glowing blue and my teeth would be chattering to the tune of Jingle Bells

  2. I would be Mince Pie as I’d eat all the mice pies that are left out for Santa while he’s unloading his presents 🙂
