The Kid Should See This

My Mum is an Airplane

Oh, the adventures that you’ll have flying through the sky — across all kinds of cities, through storms, over mountains, delivering mail and dropping off skiers — all of those things can happen when your mum is an airplane. This charming, wonder-filled short film by Moscow-based animator Yulya Aronova is one of our new favorites: My Mum is an Airplane (Моя мама самолет).

My Mum is an Airplane - airplane and child
My Mum is an Airplane - over paris
My Mum is an Airplane - delivering letters
There’s more animation to watch, including Borrowed Light, Paper to Plants, the Academy Award winning Father and Daughter, Streamschool (L’école des ruisseaux) in French, and in Russian: three Винни-Пух (Winnie the Pooh) videos.
