Sweet if brief (it’s only 68 minutes long) stuff for really little ones as Winnie the Pooh’s kangaroo pal Roo befriends a loveable baby heffalump named Lumpy while the other residents of Hundred Acre Wood are under the misguided impression that heffalumps are evil.
Fans of AA Milne’s stories will know that Pooh never actually met a mythical heffalump, so it’s nice to finally see what one looks like (they’re pastel-coloured elephants), but otherwise there’s little here to enthral anyone but the most undemanding of small viewers. To make matters worse, over 900 children auditioned for the vocal role of Lumpy, and the child that was chosen (five-year-old Brit Kyle Stanger) mumbles throughout! There is a DVD spin-off, Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie, which was made in the same year.

Is Pooh's Heffalump Movie suitable for kids? Here are our parents’ notes...

Very young viewers may be scared of the heffalump before they see it.

If you like this, why not try: The Tigger Movie, Piglet's Big Movie, Stuart Little, Curious George, The Brave Little Toaster,
