My girls love this video and watch it all the time even though it isn't Christmas time. They think it is hilarious that Madeline gets packaged up as a doll. My girls are 4 & 7 and this seems to be a good age range for this video
A great DVD to share with the children in your life!

""In an old house in Paris that was covered in vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines." In 1939, Ludwig Bemelmans began writing stories about a group of girls in a school in Paris, foremost among whom was the irrepressible Madeline. In the 1990s these wonderful stories were animated (and narrated by Christopher Plummer), producing a series of cartoons that are certain to be considered classics for many years to come.This DVD contains two 25-minute features. In Madeline's Christmas, disaster strikes when everyone in the school except Madeline is struck down with a bad cold, and a heavy snowstorm strikes Paris, keeping the parents from coming for a party. However, when a special friend comes to the school, she shows Madeline that she must keep her wishes alive, for anything can happen at Christmas. In Madeline and the Toy Factory, a visit to a toy factory turns into a real adventure when the ever-energetic Madeline falls onto a conveyor belt, and is boxed up and sent out as a doll. Arriving in the home of Gizelle, a sickly girl with no friends, Madeline discovers that it can be fun being a doll, and even more fun being a friend.My family and I love this DVD; the stories are wonderful, and funny. We consider this a great purchase. If I have one complaint against this DVD, it is that it has no "extras"; there are the two episodes and a short commercial for the other DVDs, and that is all. However, as this DVD is so reasonably priced, I would not let that stand in your way. This is a great DVD to share with the children in your life; buy it!I loved these movies for several reasons. First of all, these movies have the same quality as all the Madeline cartoons, and secondly, I loved the lessons that they taught. This is an excellent DVD."

"My 5 year old daughter loved this DVD! The one negative thing I do have to say is that the shipping charges were high as it did not come directly from Amazon. I purchased 4 of the DVDS (to give as gifts) and although they were all sent in one box, I was charged shipping for each DVD!"
