I bought this DVD several weeks ago, but did not sit down to watch it with my 5 1/2-year-old granddaughter until yesterday.
For the past several months, I had been collecting the AG historical dolls to share with her, but as of yesterday, only had introduced her to Kaya and Felicity . . . along with short synopses of life in their times. But neither of us had any idea of what the movie's storyline would cover.
I was amazed by how quickly she got caught up in it, despite the costumes and language accents of the characters. She did not move from her seat for the entire movie (90 minutes) — and except for the discussion of events LEADING UP TO the American Revolution, seemed to understand exactly what was happening. Afterwards, she also was able to retell the events to her dad, when he arrived to take her home.
Since I had not previewed the movie, I was unprepared for the scenes dealing with the sudden death of Felicity's grandfather, or her mother's near-death experience. Although she realized what was happening when the horse-drawn caisson appeared, she did not seem upset . . . but understandably, watching the scenes dealing with her mother's post partum illness seemed a little scary to her. I think (hope) I was able to reassure her that thanks to modern medicine, such events are rare these days . . . but if I were to offer any advice to first-time viewers planning to watch the movie with younger children, it would be either to cover the topic of death to the extent suitable for the child, or be prepared to deal with his/her responses, if necessary.
Aside from that, however I thought it was a great movie and definitely worth watching with a child. Already have Samantha and Molly's DVDs, so it will be interesting to see how she responds to them.
By the way, this DVD was described as "used" when listed, and when it arrived still had a tag on the package indicating it had been a rental. Any qualms I might have had about its potential condition were unfounded. It played perfectly and cost a heck of a lot less than I would have had to pay for a new copy.
I purchased this DVD Felicity the American Girl Adventure for my daughter who is six because she loves horses, and becuase she recently recieved Felicity for her birthday, and since then also recieved the Penny horse too. She loves it, and watches it whenever her brothers are not around to protest. It is a wonderful film with morals, good character and most important it supports our Christian values. There is not much out there that I could compare it to. I plan to purchase the Samantha video by American Girl as well, as we have seen it via the library and love it too....cant wait for Molly to come out at Thanksgiving time! Every little girl should watch these films. They are wholesome, and even we adults love them!
My eight year old daughter really loved this movie about Felicity. It showed what life was like in colonial Williamsburg. It also showed Felicity in all her different outfits that matched the dolls along with the different accessories (retired and current) and of course her best friend, Elizabeth. This may be a bad thing because most kids don't have all of these things but my daughter got a kick out of seeing Felicity in the outfits that she does have. My daughter watched the entire movie with her doll and did not get bored. I definately recommend this for any little girl who loves Felicity.
I purchased this dvd for our daughter. We enjoy watching the American Girl DVDs. Felicity was great. The adventures that Felicity got into just made you want to continue watching to see how it all turned out. The performance was excellant. It is definately a family movie, especially if you have a young girl at home.
We purchased Samantha last year and enjoyed it tremendously. Our hopes were that Felicity would be just as good and it was.
This is a great movie for the whole family. My 9 year old daughter loves the American Girl dolls and books and really wanted this movie. After a couple of weeks worth of chores she earned this dvd. I think she watched it twice the first weekend it came in the mail. Not only is this movie entertaining it also teaches a bit of history.
