Great, but only if your kids don't scare easily

Adorable movie about friendship and Halloween, but be warned that there are some very intense scenes for little ones (i.e. The Tree or Terror). My three year old was fine and loved the movie, but it scared my five year old so much I had to turn it off and she ended up having nightmares from the movie.

Scarier than you'd think

I bought this movie when my oldest was 4, but his 2 year old brothers were too young to watch. He was a huge Pooh fan, but not this movie! The Tree of Terrors and some of the scenes with the characters' shadows freaked him out. He had nightmares. When my twins were old enough to watch, one reacted the same way, but the other loved it! Now they are too old for it, so I gave it to a friend, who said her 4 year old is also prone to nightmares and probably isn't ready to watch it yet.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Winnie the Pooh and the other lovable characters of the Hundred Acre Wood celebrate Halloween in POOH'S HEFFALUMP HALLOWEEN MOVIE, a delightful, sugar-coated spookfest. October 31 is the perfect night to overcome fears, especially for Piglet and now Lumpy, the timid young heffalump (an elephant-like creature) introduced in a Pooh's Heffalump Movie.

The DVD also features fun songs in which the costumed characters dance and sing "Who's Behind That Mask You're Wearing?" and "We Can Weather Whatever Comes Along." Bonus features include games such as "Trick or Re-Treat" and "Pooh's Boo! Bingo."
