Reviews about The Snowman

The Snowman

Lovely pencil sketch animation and fun story

This was one of my favorite movies as a kid. The pencil sketches are not what you see in modern animation. This is completely old school. And, the introduction from a well known 80s singer is something parents will enjoy.

I am so excited my 6 year old also loves it. We own a DVD, but its so convenient to get an amazon copy so we can download it to a tablet and watch in the car or elsewhere. The basic premise is that a kid builds a snowman in a huge snowfall then it come to life and takes him on an adventure. Its entirely done to music and no words except one song has a vocal solo during the video. Its great for young kids and old kids alike.

Delightful video

Sweet video. It has no words, so any language-speaker can enjoy it. I have watched it with a 2 year old, a four year old, and adults. We all enjoyed it.

Love the snowman!

Beautiful quiet short and sweet movie! Music is very soothing, great for little ones to wind down to.

My kids loved it and hubby appreciated how I could see it ...

I swear that this was an iconic 80's kids' movie, but my husband is exactly my age and had no idea what I was talking about. Even the music is iconic, in my mind! My kids loved it and hubby appreciated how I could see it as a classic.
