"Kipper has been a great love at our house since my 3 year old son was 18 months. The "Kipper- Imagine That" video does have one strange and rather freaky story in it- it starts with the characters finding a secret door that leads them off into darkness. Eventually, they end up a desert-like land where a scary dragon pops out of a crater at them! It scared the daylights out of my son, who insists on fastforwarding through that entire episode. The other stories are your typical gentle Kipper and friends."
You'll love these stories as much as your child will

"My 22 month old son and I LOVE Kipper. The shorts included in this video showcase Kipper and his friends in all sorts of situations where they rely on their imaginations to have fun. It's also longer than most kids' videos--a full hour--and if you can wade through the seemingly endless promos for other videos at the beginning of the tape, you'll fall in love with Kipper, just like we did."
Too Scary, Many Better Kipper Choices Out There

"This is not our favorite of the Kipper videos, and if you are a parent that tries hard to screen out today's violent and nightmare-causing kid's shows, you would be angry at the content of this particular video.
The episode in which Kipper finds a lamp (British for Flashlight, I guess) and Kipper goes to buddy Tiger's house and they discover the secret staircase which leads up endlessly and then finally to the top where they meet the ugly fire-breathing dragon that tries to breath fire at them was shockingly scary for my 3 yr old son and shocking for me as a parent. My son had nightmares about dragons for weeks after watching this and to this day will cautiously ask to see this video (because he likes the other episodes) and then wants me to be on stand-by, ready to skip over the "scaaary-dragon" episode. Needless to say, this video has just disappeared from our video collection.
What a complete contradiction to the other cute, gentle, adorable Kipper videos. As a parent that tries so hard to keep tabs on today's frightening, violent, abusive, foul kid's shows, I had established a fool-hearty level of trust in Kipper since we own so many of their other great light-hearted videos. It re-affirmed for me the importance of always scrutinizing even the most innocent appearing shows.
If you are looking for more sweet, innocent, captivating, and fun Kipper videos, I would highly recommend Fun in the Sun, Pools Parks & Picnics, Playtime, and Let it Snow over this one. A couple episodes on the latter-mentioned videos do utter the word "stupid", which I am not altogether pleased with, but we skip those and/or we have a talk about "naughty words" to deal with that. At least none of the videos I mentioned score sleepless nights for our family.
Another great Kipper video

"All my kids (ages 7, 5 & 2 1/2) just love watching the Kipper videos and especially this one. There are so many imaginative adventures in this one...the dragon scene -- I guess it depends on the kids. My kids can't wait for the dragon to pop out, and they want to rewind over that part many times in a row to watch it again. There's really nothing to dislike, in general, about the Kipper videos, and this one does not disappoint."
