Good movie about the magic of Christmas Eve snow, however there are some more inappropriate words for toddlers (stupid, dumb, heck). If you're okay with that sort of language then go for it! Such a great Christmas Classic!!

A classic that still works for little ones today!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (14 ):
Kids say (14 ):

A simple story line and mildly scary/sad scenes that quickly melt into happy situations make this half-hour tale appropriate for very young viewers. Parents will enjoy reliving their childhood and sharing this classic with their kids, and the beloved holiday song figures prominently throughout this short feature -- kids of all ages will have fun singing along (turn on the DVD's subtitle feature if you don't know all of the words).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
