Snowflake the White Gorilla DVD Review & GIveaway

Leo is at an age now where he is actually appreciating films on the television. Now the weather is turning colder, and at times when there is nothing but rain falling from the skies... We like to cuddle up on the sofa, light the fire and close the curtains on this dismal weather.. With a film of Leo's choosing of course...

We were recently sent 'Snowflake, the White Gorilla' on DVD, and a few weeks ago while Leo was a poorly boy, we cuddled up together ready for our at home cinema experience. In typical Leo style he played his face to start with, he has become accustomed to watching one film over and over again, and I was just pleased to not know the story-line off by heart..

'Snowflake, the White Gorilla' is about a very special Gorilla. Snowflake is the only White Gorilla in the entire world, and for that reason she has been made to feel like she is a miss fit and that she quite simply doesn't belong. Snowflake was born into the wild, but is soon brought into captivity and is actually gifted to a young girl named Wendy. Wendy's Dad works at the local zoo and he has taken Snowflake in until she is big enough to be introduced to the Gorilla enclosure at the zoo. 

In this time frame where Snowflake lives with Wendy and her family, she becomes very close with Wendy, and when the time comes to send Snowflake to the zoo neither of them wish to leave one another.

When Snowflake is left with the other Gorilla's she soon begins to feel incredibly self concious about how different she looks to them, but despite being so very un-popular with her own kind, she is the zoo's number one main attraction. Snowflake would give anything to be just like the other Gorilla's and so sets off on a journey to the circus, where she plans on seeing a witch who can help her blend in with the rest of them...

I personally thought that this story highlights important issues that children do come across each and every day, and shows why we shouldn't judge people by how they look. Values that I do want to in-still in Leo.

Leo loved the film from start to finish and despite feeling poorly, he still managed to showcase that beautiful smile of his. 

From an adults perspective I noticed that the sound was out of sync with the characters actually speaking pretty quickly, but this wasn't enough to ruin the film for me. The main thing is that Leo enjoyed it and demanded to watch it again after the credits rolled around.

  5. This sounds like a lovely film to watch. Acceptance is the key, we are not all exactly alike. Similar not the same /exact copy. I think it is good to instill / support positive values at an early age. Plus I just love animals and animated films which the children do too. Great family viewing.

  63. The film sounds lovely, and I would love to watch it with my daughter for 2 reasons, one because she adores all animals, so this would be perfect for her, but also because she can relate to this, because she has a number of medical conditions which make her feel different to her friends, as she is unable to do many of the things they can do.
