~I received 2 DVDs and a game for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Hopefully you are almost done with all your Christmas shopping (I am so close to being done) but if you aren’t I am excited to share with you some sleigh-full terrific items fit to fill those stockings and set under the tree! Here are a few of my Holiday DVD picks!
The Secret World of Santa Claus is a two-disc set that features over a dozen episodes from the series. In Elves in Toyland, Santa, the reindeer and his elves arrive in a land full of enchantment and magic, but someone has cast a wicked spell on all the toys and made them come to life! With Christmas around the corner, they have to undo the spell before it’s too late!
A Present for Santa is a story about how the children work with the elves to make Santa a gift so he won’t be the only person without a present on Christmas. Unfortunately, the wicked Gruzzlebeard decides to unleash termites that start to eat Santa’s house and suit that holds his special Santa powers!
My daughters have already watched both of these DVDs and they really enjoy them. The episodes are bright and colorful and remind me of my childhood and the way cartoons use to be. It is definitely going into our annual tradition to watch each Christmas.
The Enchanted Tales: The Night Before Christmas & The Christmas Elves, brings two of the most beloved holiday stories to life. Everyone already knows The Night Before Christmas, but this tale is filled with lots of elf escapades and fairy magic!
In The Christmas Elves, there is a kind-hearted orphan boy and his loyal cat that discover the true meaning of Christmas. It’s a fun musical with a lot of holiday spirit. Both of the films are from the award-winning series Enchanted Tales produced by Golden Films and is also available on Comcast & Hulu.
This is a cute movie for little ones that is from the animated series on Disney Junior, The Hive. A first DVD for this series, A Very Buzzbee Christmas is about the Bee family (Pappa Bee, Mamma Bee, Buzzbee, Rubee and Babee) who take part in the Honeybee Hive’s Harvest Festival of Lights. There is a strong focus on spending time with family, making friends and finding out about the world around you; which makes this a great holiday film for tots.
If you are looking for a great educational gift, check out the Tickety Toc Matching Game! This is for little one’s 3 and up and features an assortment of friendly faces and playthings from the favorite Nick Jr. series!
This memory game comes with 72 tiles and you can just select say 12 or so for a younger child or with an older child like my 5 year old I put them all down for us to play. Memory is my daughter’s strong skill so she does really well at this game if she is sitting and paying attention. I read off the characters for her so that she can learn them and she of course gets super excited with every single match that she gets. This is a great game and the tiles are sturdy and It is an easy to understand game that is still a ton of fun to play.
So fill those stockings with some fun Christmas movies and make sure to find some time to relax to watch them even though things can be crazy hectic this time of year. Sometimes I have to remind myself to take a break from it all and just enjoy watching a DVD with my girls. Merry Christmas!
