Never heard of Missy Mila?
You have no clue what you are missing out on with her amazing Twisted Tales!
Missy Mila, volumes 1 & 2, may be new to us here in America, but it has been published by the French children's entertainment publisher Organa Kids for a while! "Organa Kids is dedicated to promoting multiculturalism, original storytelling and interactivity."
Missy Mila is meant for school-aged kids ranging from 5-8 years, however, my 11 month old Annaliese was completely caught up in this show! It has literally been in one of our DVD players at all times since it arrived!
Want to know more about Missy Mila? Here is what the company has to say:
"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 clichés, 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!"
