6 Year Old Loves this Movie
Verified purchase
My grandson loves the Boxcar Children audio books, so we downloaded this movie to watch together. It is wonderful. Other than a short few minutes of a scene in which the kids have to swim out of a cave that is filling up with tide water, the story is stress-free. I like watching a show with a kid while not having to worry that I'll have to fast forward through scary or inappropriate content. This show is wonderful in that regard. The fact that my 6-year-old grandson loved it, and has watched it many times since, makes this show an A+ purchase for me.

Wholesome movie for kids and adults!
Verified purchase
There are not many wholesome movies out there that teach good messages to kids. But this one just warms my heart! We loved the first movie and we love this one too. If they produce more, I hope they don't change the innocence in these movies and corrupt it with all the garbage others shows / movies shove into kids. If you want a good movie, this is a great one for boys and girls and adults too!

Love these movies!
Verified purchase
We absolutely love the new Boxcar Children movie! These movies are so sweet, and good, wholesome family entertainment. My son and I read the first book together last year, now I feel compelled to buy the entire series of books!

Lighthearted and sweet
Verified purchase
The BoxCar children movies are really calm and sweet. We loved the first one as it doesn’t have a lot of peril. The second one seems to be a little better quality and has minimal situations that may be alarming. I appreciated one comment that said there was only one time where the kids were in a cave and the water was rising as the only thing that may cause anxiousness for the little little ones. The movie was perfect for family movie night with all ages present.

We got it yesterday and have watched it twice. Like all the Boxcar Children, it is kind and emphasizes the values of hard-work, creativity, and caring.

Good, Family Friendly entertainment
Verified purchase
My kids and I are big fans of the Boxcar children books, and we loved the first movie. The second movie, Surprise Island, is just as good! The animation in these movies is really neat. Very beautiful and unique. The voice acting is good. The movies follow the book storylines to a T. The movies are very clean, fun, and positive. Love it!

Good Movie but No Digital Copy
Verified purchase
The movie is a good clean family movie with great graphics. If you enjoy the Boxcar Children book series you will enjoy the movie. However the digital copy is not valid. The website you are told to go to is no longer valid plus the digital code expired in 2019.
