One Potato Review

You only ever see these babies in silhouette, but what a lot of cut-ups! Chasing frogs and bees, and climbing off ledges and into bird’s nests – it’s all a little hilarious. There is also, significantly, a child in hot pursuit (and what appears to be a fireman’s helmet, no less) who isn’t so old that he cannot remember the good old days – of irresponsibility and tantrums – and isn’t so tough he doesn’t need a little comforting in the end from one of those grown-ups who were apparently back at the picnic drinking margaritas when all hell was breaking lose. Still, everybody ends up safe, and tucked in, with a pretty good story to tell.
