My almost eight-year-old daughter loves Holly Hobbie, a character she has only recently been acquainted with. In a world of garish characters like those from Monster High and over the top silliness, I find Holly and friends to be refreshing, down-to-earth characters.
In "Christmas Wishes", Holly reminds her brother Robbie that one of the best things about the season is giving. She gets a chance to put this into practice when she comes across a sad young widow with twin boys who lost their father the previous summer.So Holly and her friends who form the Hey Girls Club put their thinking caps on to figure out what they can do to pass on some holiday cheer to the grieving family.
My daughter and I have only watched two Holly Hobbie DVDs so far, including Best Friends Forever, and we look forward to catching up with the rest of the shows. The running time on this DVD is 44 mins.
