Children are infamous, not only for the penchant they have for chewing on everything they come into contact with, but also for their inability to amuse themselves – this usually ends in a call to the insurance company. Keep your short-attention-spanned younglings entertained with Jacklin Enterprises’ Winnie The Pooh’s Movie Theatre, a technicolour movie-projector and story book for R120.
On top of being entertaining, it has the added benefit of being educational, teaching the little nippers things like the importance of being able to spell Tuesday and how sometimes, a simple red balloon can cheer anyone up. As well as teaching the correct way to hunt for honey and how to avoid bee-stings, Winnie’s adventures have even been used to illustrate complex ideas, like the philosophy of Plato and the Tao, though those books aren’t available with this deal.
With 80 colour slides from five of the most popular Pooh stories: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Tigger Movie, Piglet's Big Movie, Springtime with Roo and Pooh's Heffalump Movie, and an enchanting story book to go with it, you might even find yourself missing your weekly rom-com to enjoy the antics of Pooh and his charming friends.
You’ll probably also find that Winnie the Pooh is a lot easier on the stomach than a multi-coloured dinosaur, and a lot easier on the ears than a high-pitched talking sponge. Pooh’s Movie Theatre might even save you some money on your cat’s therapy bills.
Little Known Pooh Fact: It is widely assumed that Winnie the Pooh’s main source of nutrition comes from the honey he is so often seen chasing after though, in an unpublished letter, A. A Milne claims that Winnie’s other food obsession is the banana.
