The Little Polar Bear Review

Cast Dubbed from original German Those familiar with Dutch author Hans de Beer's series of childrens' books (or the BBC series they have now spawned) will know that, as an animated feature, The Little Polar Bear is ideal for keeping young kids quiet but certainly won't hold the attention of older offspring.

Sweetly innocent, the film's rudimentary character animation is given a computerised boost for some set-pieces, while the pastel Arctic palette is broken by a brief but brightly coloured tropical trip.

Essentially it consists of three mini-adventures undertaken by kind-hearted cub Lars, each containing a gentle message about how animals and humans should all get along together.

Don't even consider it if you fall outside its limited age range; but, for tiny tots, this could be a first introduction to the cinema experience.
