Thomas the Train DVD Giveaway – 5 winners

Thomas & Friends: Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure - The Movie

I have a fun giveaway for fans of Thomas and Friends. Thanks to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, I’m giving away five copies of Thomas & Friends: Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure movie. Awesome, right? My little one use to be crazy about Thomas when he was a pre-schooler. He’s six now and still enjoys watching Thomas the train. In the new movie, Thomas and his friends go on an adventure to find some treasure on the island of Sodor. BTW, 2015 marks Thomas’ 70th anniversary. I guess that means Thomas is older than I am. Thomas & Friends: Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on September 8th.

The Seventh Dwarf = Sleeping Beauty and the 7 Dwarfs

The Seventh Dwarf

The kids and I recently watched The Seventh Dwarf. Shout! Factory sent me the Blu-ray for review on my dad blog. The animated movie is a mash-up of fairy tale characters. The main storyline is similar to Sleeping Beauty. But instead of Aurora and Maleficent, the princess is Rose and the witch is Dellamorta. In this version of the classic fairy tale, Dellamorta places a curse on Princess Rose. She’s pricked and almost everyone falls asleep. To wake up the kingdom, the seven dwarfs have to rescue Jack from the witch. Jack is Rose’s true love and only his kiss can wake up Rose and the rest of the kingdom. I thought the Seventh Dwarf was OK, but my kids really loved it. My guess is the 88-minute, PG-rated film will appeal to kids more than adults. The Seventh Dwarf is available now on DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack (3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD). The Blu-ray has a list price of $24.97, but you can currently purchase it on Amazon for $15.86.

Strawberry Shortcake Berry Tales DVD Review

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Tales DVD

If your kids love Strawberry Shortcake, then they’ll love their new DVD: Strawberry Shortcake Berry Tales. The 71-minute, G-rated DVD features three episodes from their show. All three episodes involve a tale for a new play the characters want to put on. As usual, the characters are cute and your little ones will be entertained. In my opinion, each episode has an important message, but the shows are not preachy. Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Tales is available now on DVD. It has a list price of $14.98, but you can currently purchase the DVD on Amazon for $9.44.
