Featured Review: Missy Mila Twisted Tales

Who is Missy Mila?  If you have to ask, then I'm guessing that you have yet to be enchanted by one of her Twisted Tales.  Recently released to DVD here in America by the French children's entertainment publisher, Organa Kids, Missy Mila: Twisted Tales Volume 1 and Volume 2 is a delightful collection of animated stories shared by the lovable, bubbly storyteller, Mila.


 "Organa Kids is dedicated to promoting multiculturalism, original storytelling and interactivity."  School-aged kids are the target population for Missy Mila: Twisted Tales.  The recommended ages are 5-8 year-olds, however kids of all ages will be entertained by the lively antics of Mila, the larger than life story characters and the lively action of the animated series. 

Product Description: 

Mila is an 8-year-old quirky, energetic tomboy who loves to tell you traditional story-tales but with her own twist. Kids will be inspired to use their imagination and to become storytellers themselves. Audience participation is triggered by Mila's direct-to-camera asides all along the episode; her questions and games bring kids right into the story. Join Mila, laugh at the zany dialogs and fresh art in this innovative series which explores the world of classic tales. 
 Traditional tales are timeless stories that everyone loves to delve back into, generation after generation. Far from old-fashioned clich├ęs, the series “Missy Mila: Twisted Tales” revamps this cultural heritage through the imagination and spontaneity of a present-day little girl. Mila’s stories are peppered with spicy anachronisms and offbeat re-interpretations. So, don’t act surprised if you see a prince applying hair gel before setting out to rescue a princess, unless the latter is a kung-fu champion, that is! As for the dreadful Minotaur, Mila prefers to picture him as the Toupouloupou, a sweetie pie with a sweet tooth. And why do the wolves always have to be depicted as the bad guys? And, in her very personal adaptation of the Three Little Pigs, Mila swaps the awfully shy big bad wolf for an affable bull that… rocks!
