Stick Man DVD | review and competition

Stick Man DVD

Too old for Stick Man?


This weekend we all sat down together and watched Stick Man DVD. Watching a film together is one of our favourite family pastimes for those wet and windy days or those days when everyone just needs to chill out a bit. It gives us the perfect excuse to spend some quality time together.

Stick Man did not disappoint. It’s a story we have been reading for years but haven’t looked at in a while and there’s always something endearing to watching it played out on your television screen. Did it match what you had been seeing in your head?

Yes, it did!

Stick Man is written by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, another of our favourite films. The tale is about a journey where Stick Man gets in to all sorts of trouble and it seems the more he tries to get back home the further he travels away.

Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their three stick children and one day he goes on an unintentional journey. His epic journey takes him through different seasons and he encounters many obstacles on his way but he’s not an ordinary stick,

He’s Stick Man, he’s Stick Man, he’s Stick Man, you see.

Axel Scheffler’s fabulous illustrations are brought to life and we¬†enjoyed the 27 minute film snuggled up on the sofa enchanted by the little man and wishing him to get back home.

    Probably the plane ride to Las Vegas… However driving to Scotland felt like a lifetime. In fact, that did take around 30 hours once we’d had the sleep break!

  25. February 2, 2016 / 12:22 AM

    I went to Montreal & Quebec with my husband a couple of years ago. Over 7 hours on that plane and it seemed like 24 as I was so desperate to get there. The journey back was just as bad as it was the end of our holiday and I was desperate to get back to see the kids :)

  48. February 5, 2016 / 2:11 AM

  50. Victoria L
    February 5, 2016 / 12:42 PM

    My longest trip was to Australia to see relatives – but well worth it.

    The longest journey was not to such a far away destination. We took a coach holiday and we went from the South Coast to North Wales, but it had it pick up up passengers at lots of different towns along the way. We left Portsmouth at 7am and didn’t get to Wales until 10pm – that’s a long time be stuck on a coach!
