I LOVED these when I was little - I wish there was a way to see them again!
13 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have such great memories of all of these stories set to film. I particularly loved The Snowqueen and The Seven Dancing Princesses. What a great way to get to know classic stories and much better than what's out there for kids today. Someone should put them on DVD, I'd buy them for my future child
