Loranga, Masarin and Dartanjang

A foreign children's story set in it's own little world.

Loranga, Masarin and Dartanjang

A funny and interesting show ideal for young children. We went on an exciting journey with Masarin, his father Loranga and his grandfather Dartanjang as they took on everyday problems with a little twist, in their own little world.

The storyline is amusing and light-hearted, whilst being easily accessible for children and enjoyable to watch. The show as a whole is slightly whacky, which is what provided most of the humour, especially for the adults. There were people of varying ages in the audience and everyone seemed to be smiling the whole way through the show. The set was simple but fun and the props aided in creating humorous moments and interaction with the audience.

As children's shows go, I don't think it's the best one I have seen. A book of the same name was published in 1969 in Sweden when the story was first created, and a cartoon followed in 2005. Because of this, children today would be unlikely to know of the story, and so the show may not make as much sense. Having said that, it was well explained at the beginning and was fairly simple to follow. I found bits of it rather funny, and it was clearly the sort of show that young kids would enjoy.

Overall, it's a fairly amusing show, particularly for adventurous young children, and may also be good for any people who saw the cartoon, or who just remembers the story.

Loranga, Masarin and Dartanjang is on at 10.25am every day until 31st August, excluding 17th.

Suitable for all ages.
