My kids really love their DVD’s. Every time they know of a new DVD out, they are after us to get it for them. Blinky Bill is a classic from Australia that my kids have never had a chance to check out before. They were thrilled for the chance to check out something completely new. They loved the little Koalas and found the story both funny and exciting. When I sat down later to watch it, so I could see what it was like, they came and started watching it again. Definitely a movie that I would recommend for many young children and families.

Blinky Bill is a little koala with a big imagination. An adventurer at heart, he dreams of leaving the little town of Green Patch and following in his missing father’s footsteps. Mr. Bill went missing in the Outback some time ago and Blinky is the only one who believes he is still alive. Blinky discovers a mysterious marker that hints at his dad’s whereabouts. He embarks on a journey that takes him far beyond the boundary of Green Patch, into the wild and dangerous Outback. He quickly makes friends with Nutsy, a zoo koala, as well as Jacko, a nervous frill-necked lizard. Pursued relentlessly by a vengeful cat that has a personal score to settle with Blinky. The trio must learn to work together if they ever want to survive the rugged Australian landscape and find Blinky’s father!
