A cute, fun and charming show from my childhood
5 June 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As a young girl I loved Animal Shelf. Looking back on some of my favourites at 19 from childhood, as some may know I am quite nostalgic, I still think Animal Shelf is a cute, fun and charming that is perfect for its target audience and more. The show's animation is very nice. The toy animals are cute-looking, and the backgrounds and colours are detailed and easy on the eyes. The music is memorable and sweet, the writing is funny and charming and the stories are cute with many amusing and nostalgic scenes. The characters are all engaging with endearing personalities, my personal favourite has always been Stripey the Zebra, though I love them all equally. All in all, cute, fun and charming, well worth watching! 10/10 Bethany Cox
