Amazing Animations: Children’s Animation Programme (0-6 year-olds) (U)

November 3, 2012
1:30 pm

Animation, like childhood, can be just full of wonder with the biggest pleasures being the simplest ones. This programme carefully chosen for our littlest and most special audience strips away all the soft-sell toy ads and the over-the-top blockbuster-style special effects and just delivers up a programme of wonderful films full of simple joys.
