Zokkomon - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?) - That too for kids only, adults don't bother.
quick review:

Harry Potter meets Krissh meets not-so-Home-Alone, unfortunately in a very superficial, blah sort-of a way. And yet, there is enough for the under-10s to enjoy indoors on a hot summer day.
