On the 16th May 2016 something great happened – the Half-Shell Heroes: Blast To The Past DVD was released and young children were able to join in the fun of the Turtles Franchise that we all have come to love over the years, Blast from the past is a perfectly age appropriate film for the little ones!
The film is a one-off short film (44mins) that is aimed at a pre-school audience and is younger child-friendly; I knew it would be perfect for Mouse (6 years) but wasn’t sure about Monkey (8 years). As it turns out, they both loved it and actually wanted more! The fact that it is 44 minutes is great too as it is long enough to be jam packed with adventure but not too long that the children loose their concentration!
The story is great and simple to follow, the animation is fantastic with brilliant colours and it is enough to keep the little ones stuck to the screen for 44 minutes! The adventure sees the turtles heading back in time to the prehistoric days to battle with the
Mouse said “the best bit was when the Dinosaurs and Turtles were in a team”
Monkey stuck to one word “Epic”.
We would definitely recommend this for those younger fans of the turtles who are a little too young for the versions that all already out there. If you want fun, vibrancy and a great story then this is for you! Luckily for us this arrived just in time for half term, so I have had 44 minutes of the kids being quiet…and happy! Bliss.
