We received the Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart from Shout! Factory to review, it’s now available on DVD.
Jack and Cuckoo Clock Heart DVD is about a boy who has a cuckoo clock where his heart should be. He was born on a freezing cold day and his heart froze, so the midwife replaced it with a cuckoo clock. Leah really loved watching this movie and Charlotte actually did too! The girls both really loved the songs and the story of Jack who fought against all odds and overcame some obstacles.

Madeleine the midwife saves his life by inserting a cuckoo clock in place of his defective heart. It will work, she warns him, as long as Jack observes three golden rules. First of all, he must never touch the hands of the clock. Secondly, he must control his anger. And last, but certainly not least, he must never, ever fall in love. The moment Jack sets eyes on a young girl singing on a street corner, the hands of his clock-heart begin to race. Desperate to find her again, Jack launches himself into a romantic quest that will lead him from the lochs of Scotland, to the city of Paris and all the way to Andalusia.
