Because I grew up in Taiwan, I never seen any of the The Adventure of Raggedy Ann and Andy episodes. I was given the chance to review the DVDs, so I thought it would be fun to watch them with my kids. Because these are re-released episodes from an old series, the animation is definitely very different from the animation that my kids are used too. DD could not appreciate the classic animations, so she lost interest fairly quickly right after I popped in the first DVD. Her little brother, on the other hand, thought it was pretty cool to watch the episodes with his mommy. We watched all three DVDs in a week (when big sister is at school, and there is nothing else to do). He enjoyed watching it. For someone who watched this as a kid, it would probably be pretty neat to watch it again with their kids.
