My kids go mental over this disc and I can tell you right now that it's saved my sanity more than once.

Everyone's heard of Humphrey right? If not he's the bear on the picture next to this text. I grew up with Humphrey bear as a kid and still even have the stuffed toy given to me when I was three! To find him on DVD from Magna Pacific and my kids reaction to the disc just goes to show the staying power of this friendly fellow.

There are three episodes on the disc with a total running time of 105 minutes. The first has Humphrey showing us his favourite things to do and see in a brand new episode made for this DVD feature. There is singing and dancing and also some hijinks in the kitchen when Humphrey, Rebecca and Anthony make Humphrey some honey cake.

I personally laughed at the second one as Humphrey decides to set up a shop with some help. He then goes on to wanting to sell some presents that were given to him! We go on a journey with the bear and friends to see if his shop and dreams will work out the way he wants.

Finally get your fairy wings and tutus ready as Humphrey dresses up as a fairy to help a friend write a story with some funny results that the kids will love.

The beauty of Humphrey is that kids of all ages are totally smitten with the innocence and humour that he brings to the screen. Whilst his human companions might change over the years, it's that big bear that remains ever popular. High recommendation to all parents.
