It's cute

My little 2.5 yr old got this movie as a gift, we watched it together and she just loved it! She's not a TV fan, but this movie does the trick to have her sit by my side and relax on the sofa. She loves to sing along at the beginning...the hamsters are all so cute to watch...a nice soft story with a good ending to sing along and dance to. We enjoy it together. Nothing's wrong with this movie, but I'd like to see more of this style but with a not-so-scary dragon.

Great messages
Too much violence
