The Tales Of Beatrix Potter £16.99 @ Reader’s Digest
Oh man, this is a stunning little set where you get all the Beatrix Potter tales on three DVDs for only £16.99 instead of the usual £34.99. The Tales of Beatrix Potter are carefully put together to create a fantastic journey for little ones and a trip down memory lane for their parents.
Children’s stories may come and go but the Tales of Beatrix Potter continue to be firm favourites with children and parents alike. Remember Tabitha Twitchett? Or Jemima Puddleduck? My favourite is definitely the “soporific effect” that the cabbages had on the “leetle bunny rabbits”.
These three DVDs are beautifully animated with popular actor’s voices such as Derek Jacobi, Prunella Scales, Richard Wilson, Sue Pollard and Niamh Cusack. Apparently the DVDs are interwoven with visits to the Lake District to meet Beatrix herself although, um, I am not quite sure how they managed that!
These would make a lovely gift for a friend expecting a baby or for your children and the saving is rather nice too.
