If you are anything like me, you are probably looking for ways to keep your children entertained for an hour or so during the school holidays. The Electronic Babysitters ( aka TV/ internet) are all very well but you do need to keep an eye on what your kids are actually watching, as suitability between programs/pages can vary. This is where a nice, safe, U rated video can come in very handy and with any luck you might get a bit of peace and quiet too.
A Tiger’s Tail is the very cute, light-hearted story of what happens when a tiger cub escapes from a local wildlife park by climbing into a boy’s backpack. Billy, the backpack’s owner, his dog and his best friend get into all sorts of trouble trying to return Luna, the cub, to the wildlife park. The friends have a run in with the local bullies, use their secret to impress the ‘girl next door and spend a lot of time trying to stop Luna from destroying the family home. Predictably the baby tiger steals the show from the human actors, although the dog is pretty good too.
This movie is ideally suited to children who like watching animal movies and is probably of interest mainly to children under the age of ten. My 8 and 6 year olds found parts of it hilarious, but my older two (11 and 12) got a bit bored once they had got over the cuteness factor. They did, however, really enjoy the ‘Training the Animals’ and ‘Animal Blooper’ segments of the disc.
A Tiger’s Tail is the kind of movie you can safely put on to watch without having to worry that anyone might see something unsuitable, although you may have to watch them closely during future visits to zoos and wildlife parks.
We were sent a copy of A Tiger’s Tail to review and I also have three copies of this sweet movie to give away. If you’d like to win one, just reply to this post and I will draw the winners at noon next Thursday ( 7th August).
