This DVD was totally cute. Though it was probably geared more towards children, I still loved the animal antics and the story line. Mrs. Santa Claus is narrating what she and Santa are doing in the days before Christmas, decorating the tree, reading letters from children, and answering questions about animals. Most of the footage is of animals that live in the Artic and Antartica areas and some scenes are hilarious. I think kids of all ages will truly enjoy this National Geographic film.

Great Bonus Features
Nicholas R. Katz | Bethesda, MD | 12/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The DVD is a must have for cheery, young animal enthusiasts. This DVD brings the best of the Arctic Kingdom right into your living room. Watch as sea otters seem to scramble along the top of water, or polar bear young slide into their igloos for safety, or experience the awe of seeing real reindeer along with their furry antlers! Not only is the DVD great, but the Bonus Features are fantastic! I should know, I designed them!! There is a "Guess Who?" game with a zoomed image of an animal, and the child must choose the correct answer from an assorted list of other animals. The "Sound off!" game allows your child to learn what noises are assosciated with each arctic animal. The "Interactive Quiz" is a narrated quiz which asks some multiple choice, but mostly True/False questions for you child to ponder and hopefully learn from. All the quizzes reinforce learning and never make a child feel bad for answering incorrectly.

This could arguably be the best children's animal DVD of all time!"
Cute AND Educational

"My 5 year old twin daughters LOVE this movie! We have the VHS version, so no bonus features or anything. It is April, and they still want to watch this movie. They have learned so much about animals I had never even heard of! At their age, they are like sponges. They remember everything! It is kind of cute because "Santa" tells about the animals. The footage is incredible, and the information is just right for elementary age children (and adults!) It is only 30 mins. long, which I love."
Perfect for young animal lovers

"My toddler loves this DVD. Educational and fun, she learns about the arctic and its animals. The music between segments is upbeat and inspires dancing around the living room. How many not yet three year olds know what narwhals are and where they live? No gory moments. Just great information and very age appropriate."
