Paper Planes DVD Review & Giveaway

Paper Planes is a great newly released film by Lionsgate, about an eleven year old Australian boy, Dylan, and his ambition to compete in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan.


His passion for inventing and creating paper planes is clear to see and the film follows his journey to come up with the best paper plane.  Having lost his mother at a young age and with an unsupportive father he is on his own until he meets up with the current Japanese champion Kimi, who he strikes up a friendship with, which helps boost his self esteem and enthusiasm.  The film follows various emotions from start to finish including friendship, family, trust and self belief.

My 8yr old daughter sat glued to this film during it’s entirety, she thoroughly enjoyed it and I think it was totally appropriate for her age.  I enjoyed the film too, and it is definitely something I would have watched when I was younger, but equally something I loved sitting down to watch as a family now.  It has a feel good factor to it and happy endings all round.

  1. Trying to fly my kite which was shaped like an octopus. Once it was high up in the air it would fly well, it was just all the running to try and get it to launch.

  2. Playing with my (very few, maybe 2 or 3) barbie dolls, with all the clothes that my nan knitted for her! Wish I’d kept them for my little girl

  3. hide and seek, we used to play it with our cousins all the time but from what I remember we always hid in the top of the wardrobe…not very creative with our hiding places

  4. I used to love my Skip-it. (A small ball on the end of a piece of rope, you would put it around your ankle and spin it with that ankle and jump over it with the foot) Remember those? 🙂

  5. Skipping with a skipping rope was my obsession at school and I still remember most of the songs even if my knees aren’t up to all that jumping 😉

  6. Finding my mother’s old archery set in the shed and shooting arrows all over the place – carefully- was great fun.

  7. I just loved playing in the back garden! we had communal yards and about 7 families where always out playing when it was light outside! was great fun and lots of good memories.

  8. Playing scrabble. All the family would play – not together as there were 7 of us including mum and dad – and I would take ages to play!

  9. My friends and I used to play two balls up against the wall, you’d have 2 tennis balls and swing your arm and bounce one on the ground then it would hit the wall, you’d sing songs as you go and would do it one handed, under your legs and behind your back. We were quite expert at it 🙂

  10. I was very lucky and we had a giant snakes and ladders game in the garden that my Dad made, so we used to play human snakes and ladders! It never ended well, but was too big to upend the board lol… 🙂
