About Kid Flicks One: If you’ve ever been the youngest of the group, you’ll sympathize with the little tadpole who always falls a tad behind in the charming Kuap. Catching up on penmanship is the name of the game in the winning doc Pen Licence. Then little ones are in charge and grown-ups get to play when the hilarious Flipped reworks the script. These shorts and so many others await you!

Kid Flicks One is recommended for ages 3–7.
