If you enjoyed Stuart Little, and Charlotte's Web and the classic childrens stories like my clan you will adore Paddington. It was done really well, a delight for the imagination and belly laugh funny at parts. Ry loved it and I also had a twelve year old friend who enjoyed it. I am a sucker for bears, animals that talk and wear clothing. The vivid colour and old fashioned charm of the sets, costumes and characters were amazing.
I especially liked the lessons mixed into the story and the simple beauty of his family life in Peru. It gets fabulous ratings on lots of major sites so I don't think it's just me who was impressed. One of my favourite things as a Momma has always been watching my boys laugh out loud and be mesmerized by a lovely film I enjoy too...it fills my heart.
If you have kiddos it's well worth it and a timeless treat. Pick up a jar of marmalade and a fresh french bagette and make some marmalade sandwiches and surprise your kids after.
Tomorrow is a PD day and the movie inspired a little activity search and Ry picked this to make. Lego and PD days is perfect lazy family day combo.
