Give the Gift of Movies This Holiday Season
Everyone loves movies! We have a movie night every Sunday and it is something I truly treasure with my girls. We make popcorn, cuddle on the couch, and take turns picking movies. Of course we are always watching kid movies, but that is fine, because I love them too! Movies are special. They transport you for an hour or so. Take you away to a magic land. I always remember getting movies under the tree when I was growing up – VHS of course.
If you are looking for some DVDs or BluRays to slip under the tree or in some stockings this year, then Shout Factory has a great selection for you! My family and I received these about 2 weeks ago and have watched all of them so I can say, without a doubt, they would make great gifts!
My girls are obsessed with My Little Pony right now. They LOVE this show and everything that goes with it. Which is fine by me because I love it too. And, my husband will never admit this, but he loves it too. Rainbow Dash is his favorite. He is always zoned in to the show when it is on TV. Shout Factory has several My Little Pony DVDs that would be great for your little one this Christmas!
My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks is a really fun movie! It is an Equestria Girls movie – they are the human versions of the ponies. They have the same names, looks, personality traits. They live in an alternate dimension and Princess Twilight Sparkle can travel to that dimension – I promise, it is a really cool concept! My 3 year old loves this movie! She sat through the whole thing when we first watched it, and has since asked to watch it every day. She loves the Equestria Girls and I think for Christmas, she just might be getting some of the dolls!
My Little Pony: Spooktacular Pony Tales is right up my 3 year old’s alley. She loves all things spooky, for whatever reason, so she was really excited about this DVD! There are six spooky tales featured on this DVD and they are super fun for kids! My youngest really enjoyed this movie too. The DVD also comes with some pumpkin carving stencils and a Halloween poster (which is in our play room right now).
My Little Pony: Keys of Friendship contains 5 episodes of the hit TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Like I said, my girls love this show. We watch it every day. They have a DVD player in the car and are always asking to watch My Little Pony. I am so excited that now they can! They have loved having this in the car. It is seriously on repeat back there. Since we got this DVD and put it in the car, nothing else has been played on that thing. In these episodes, Princess Twilight Sparkle learns what it means to be a princess and there are some really great values for young kids!
I had heard that Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart might not be great for really little kids, so my husband and I decided to watch this without the girls. While this movie is a little bit dark and spooky, my girls would still really enjoy it. We actually watched it again with them and my youngest kind of wandered away halfway through, BUT my 3 year old was mesmerized. She does love all spooky things like Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride and that is definitely the feel of this movie. We all really enjoyed this one – it is a great family movie!
When I was little, I used to watch CatDog all the time. It was a favorite show of mine. I was super excited to receive CatDog: The Complete Series and to be able to share these episodes with my girls. My 3 year old finds this show absolutely hilarious. We will sit and watch it together and just laugh and laugh. If you do not know about it, there is a cat and a dog – stuck together. So “two heads, no butt” as my daughter puts it. This is a great show and a lot of fun!
Shout Factory has so many other great DVDs so be sure to browse their website and check them out. I know I will be getting some movies from them for the girls this year!
