  • Important Childhood stories to remember! inspiring and important. Including light and sound effects .  more »
  • Ok Place if you want to learn more about HC Andersen. Our nine-year-old daughter knows only some of the stories and some do not want to hear because they are unpleasant (like the girl with the sulfur sticks). It's nicely built environments and you can listen to parts of some stories, it could have been more extensive.
