Every night, the sleeping children of the world are sent to a fantastic land of dreams thanks to the kind and magical Sandman. But the Sandman’s got some big trouble when Habumar, the master of nightmares, steals the Sandman’s powerful Sand of Dreams and takes control of Dreamland! Needing a brave hero to help them retrieve the sands, the Sandman and his faithful sidekick, Nepomuk the Sheep, recruit a six-year-old boy named Miko. Together, they set off on an incredible journey to save the power of dreaming for every girl and boy. Will Miko and his newfound friends stop Habumar?
Our Thoughts: What a gem! This DVD was a hit with our whole family. The animation is a true treat and very much in the same style of Coraline of James and the Giant Peach which is something I always enjoy (how much work must go into that!). Beyond the show stopping animation though, is a lovely story about courage, friendship and facing fears. The message behind this program is one appropriate for all children and even the "bad guy" is not so bad that it will be too scary for young ones. The Sandman is sure to be a new classic and is a must watch. Pick up your copy today on Amazon....
