I've been listening to adventures in Odyssey Since I was in elementary school, now I am 33 and I still love it. I have my son listening to adventures in Odyssey now At five years old and he loves it as well.
I'm so certain that you and/or the people you're buying them for will be so pleased I'm keeping my review short. I bought these for Gifts. They've listened to them every day since opening them. You'll never make a better purchase!
This album does have intense episodes on it, however, they are broken up by lighter hearted stories. What may scare kids the most is how Dr. Regis Blackgaard appears to vanish without trace. In the 2 part Episode of "The Battle" may be too intense for under age kids.
Dr. Blackgaard does come back in other albums.
However, over all it is a very good album and enjoyable.
