This wonderful disc is just what the doctor
ordered to keep the kids happy up until the big day finally arrives. I know
that my kids certainly love the title and the songs are catchy enough that
adults will enjoy it as well.
At first I thought the disc was simply going
to be a live show with the gang singing songs from
all time favourite Christmas shows live on stage. What was to follow was a
wonderful Christmas adventure involving all the usual Hi-5 cast doing their
regular skits but following a seasonal theme. Everything works well and the
stage and prerecorded events are meshed well together in a cohesive manner
that the kids love.
One of the weird things about Christmas in
Australia is that we sing songs about snow and the winter, whereas many of us
have never seen the snow let alone actually had a white Christmas. Hi-5
celebrate the uniqueness of the Australian festive season and it's all good as
it addresses things that our little tackers can relate to. A particular thing
to note would be when Hi-5 give Santa a pair of board shorts as his present.
Only in Australia!
Audio and video is great as per usual and
there are only 10 commercials for Hi-5 products and a karaoke feature. My kids
absolutely loved this DVD and I know that yours will too. A great thing about
the disc is that it will auto start if no one pushes buttons, which is great
for when you put in the disc then forget to hit play.
Highly recommended and one that the kids will
go nuts over this Christmas.
