Parts of this movie may be frightening for preschoolers. An excellent choice, though, for those 5 and up. The singing, dancing, acting and color schemes can't be beaten compared to other movies from any era. But above all is teamwork. When all worked together they were able to get the broomstick of The Wicked Witch of The West. Moreover, while Scarecrow didn't physically have a brain, Woodman didn't physically have a heart, and the Lion didn't physically have courage, each had all of those qualities mentally, proving that what you don't have physically can sometimes be made up for with what you have mentally. A classic. Highly recommended.
