Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants Review and Giveaway!

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is the perfect back to school treat for all the family. Based on the popular CBBC TV show it blends stunning CGI animation with live action backdrops to really transport little ones to the  undergrowth where they’ll embark on a huge adventure with the tiniest heroes.


In a peaceful little clearing in the heart of the woods, an abandoned picnic has become the site of a fearsome frenzy. The tiniest critters of the undergrowth are going antennae to antennae to win the spoils, until the plucky black ant, Mandible, discovers the ultimate treasure – a box of sugar! Little does he know of the little ladybug already hiding inside.

Suddenly, the bold young ladybug finds herself caught in the middle of the battle between two tribes of ants, when the box of sugar sparks the attention of the formidable red ants! Together, Mandible and his ladybug friend must protect the anthill from the red ant warriors in this tale of teamwork, friendship and fun!

Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants is released on Digital Download from Monday 19th September and on DVD Monday 26th September and is brought to you by Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK.

We watched this yesterday and it is fantastic! It is so clever how it moves between the real world and animated one. Sometimes it's hard to tell what is real and what is animated as they merge so well....

It is such a cute story which is told through music and sounds.....There is not actually one word spoken! It really didn't need words....The actions and noises from the insects told the story so well...

Ellie said it was "Awesome". Enough said....hehehe Becky said "It was the cutest film she has ever seen" I have to agree....There was a lot of us saying Aww!

We haven't seen a film like this before and it is something really different.....We thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a real treat for the eyes and ears....

  20. Picnics are a thing that my mum would do with us as children. We did enjoy to picnic by the seaside. As adults we have done the same on occasions. Though probably a couple of years since last occasion with some friends and children. I think I might just get prepared and take us for a picnic this weekend. Sun is shining at the moment, and not too far from the seaside :- a short drive in the car. Enjoy!
