KNUFFLE BUNNY TOO: A CASE OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY cover image
Children enjoyed this because, in their own words, "they got their own bunnies back." They would definitely watch it again. They liked Trixie and how it depicted the value of friendship. Also, the father/daughter relationship was inspiring. It allows children to see how other children work through emotional issues such as separation from a beloved toy. Many children were interested in reading the Knuffle Bunny books when they learned that the movie was based on a book.
Very funny. Terrific visuals - colorful, animated characters against black and white still photographs. Suspenseful. The video would be fun to watch with a child as the video deals with the feelings of jealousy, frustration, anger and ultimately - friendship. The video uses a noir-type style where it is almost like a 1940s mystery with voice over narration and middle the night meetings and exchanges. Also uses jazzy, sultry saxophone background music. It acknowledges the very human emotions of jealousy, competition, frustration, anger and friendship. Some parents might think the character of the father is overly indulgent; i.e.. Trixie wakes up her father in the middle of the night and he goes out to exchange knuffle bunnies. Trixie is funny, smart and sassy. She is Anglo and her best friend, Sonja, is of color. It is respectful for a full range of children's emotions. Wonderful production qualities, beautiful animation, creative visuals, great background music. Excellent casting of actor for Trixie's voice. A lot of story is told in 11 minutes. Trixie plays a strong female character who eventually bonds with a rival - promoting friendship even in the presence of conflict.
Trixie can't wait to bring Knuffle Bunny to school, but she finds out that someone else has the exact same bunny! A 24-hour journey ensues, in which she loses Knuffle bunny and gains him back along with something new - her first best friend.
