About Blinky Bill:
Blinky Bill is one of Australia’s most recognized characters and a bona fide icon. The lovable antics of the mischievous koala have captured the hearts of millions since the release of The Adventures of Blinky Bill book series in 1933. In 1992, the first feature film Blinky Bill, The Mischievous Koala was released in major territories. This was followed by several successful TV series and movies which continue to air around the world today.


Review:


Blinky Bill is really aimed at the younger kids-if your kids like Paw Patrol or Doc McStuffins, then this movie is for them. Older kids may find the pacing too slow, wanting the story to move forward more, whereas younger kids will be entranced by the colors, backdrop and fun. The movie does teach the importance of several moral foundations, which is why it has received so many approvals and awards. It teaches about staying true to one's community, keeping faith even when the odds seem against you, the unconditional love between children and their parents, and how friends can come from unexpected places, and be the ones we have for life. It's a cute little movie, and one that will lead to more discussions as a family.
