A dated, gentle story

This is a classic which is starting to show its age, rather like the worn velveteen rabbit himself. A very gentle story with bags of imagination about the secret life of toys, suitable for young children (though some references might need to be explained). Samuel West, as always, does a wonderful job with his skilful and emotive narration. The story itself lasts for 28 minutes, including the frequent over-loud but pleasant musical intervals.

The remainder is a reading of the modern addendum from a printed version of the book, including discussion of the original 1922 drawings which are presumably included in the picturebook version. So this second section isn't so successful - though it does include a rather delightful song about old toys sung by the talented West.
