Quotes

Host: The world of Timeless Tales is a magical world in which all stories end happily.

But grown-ups have made mistakes, and now we need your help to make our world better.

Magical
7 July 2006 | by BellsOnHerShoesSee all my reviews

The Timeless Tales movies brought so much magic into my childhood. Every year for Christmas my grandfather would buy my siblings and I each a different movie. We watched them over and over again. I can't even explain the effect they had on us. It wrapped us up and made us believe that everything was good and the world was at peace. It made everything seem right. The Ugly Duckling was probably their best. The music was great, I remember we'd always sing it, everywhere we went. The Steadfast Tin Soldier made us cry! As sad as that sounds. These movies were a great idea, and magical. I recommend them to anybody with children.
