Have a Family Movie Night With “Let’s Go PJ Masks!” Now On DVD #Giveaway

It has been a sad and stressful week in our house. My uncle, my father’s brother, passed away. He was my last living uncle and the only “grandfather” my youngest children knew, since my father had passed away before they were born. I was very close with my uncle, especially after my dad died, 10 and a half years ago. Even though he lived a long life, it was still sad to lose such a beloved man.

After this week we are definitely in need of some time to enjoy some much-needed family time. That is why I was so happy to recently receive Let’s Go PJ Masks on DVD as an Official PJ Masks Blogger. This DVD has six action-packed episodes, plus a super new music video and a bonus set of stickers! Tonight we will pop some popcorn, grab some candy and drinks and settle in for a family movie night in front of the TV.

Our kids are excited to see Catboy, the real parade leader save the day from Night Ninja, even though he does not think he can lead the Ninjalinos without his drum. They can’t wait to see what happens when Luna Girl turns a sleeps-walking Cameron into her very own human puppet and it is up to the PJ Masks to save the day…but Gekko needs to stop messing around first.

So I am off to get things ready for tonight. How do you celebrate Family Movie Night at your house? I would love to hear all about it in the comments. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway below for your chance to win this DVD.

“The Gruffalo’s Child” Re-Released on DVD #Giveaway

Yesterday, I told you about the re-release of, The Gruffalo and today, I am here to tell you all about the re-release of, The Gruffalo’s Child. This film is based on the beloved children’s picture book by Julia Donaldson. I can’t tell you how much my kids love these films. I have to admit, I do as well. They are so beautifully done that they captivate our attention from beginning to end. In The Gruffalo’s Child, The Gruffalo tells his child about a Big Bad Mouse that he ran into many years before.

The curious little Gruffalo cannot contain her curiosity and sets out to see if this creature really exists. She encounters the same fox, owl and snake from The Gruffalo who each tell her where she can find the Big Bad Mouse. Feeling that she had been tricked and there is no Big Bad Mouse, she finally runs into the little mouse from The Gruffalo. The little mouse is just as clever, and invites The Gruffalo’s Child to meet the Big Bad Mouse using the moonlight to cast a shadow that scares the Gruffalo’s Child and sends her fleeing.

These films show children that brains can prevail over brawn. Check out the trailer HERE!  Helena Bonham Carter narrates as she did in The Gruffalo. Special features include a Behind the Scenes Documentary and Artwork Gallery. You can purchase this film on Amazon. If you would like a chance to win this DVD, enter the giveaway below.

Award-Winning Children’s Book, “The Gruffalo” re-released on DVD #Giveaway

I am excited to share an enchanting film based on the award-winning children’s picture book by Julia Donaldson. The Gruffalo  has just been re-released on DVD and tells the story of a mouse who walks through the woods in search of a nut. Along his route he runs across several other creatures who think he looks like a tasty treat.

This tiny mouse shows that smart thinking can outwit a hungry fox, owl and snake. Mouse invents an imaginary monster with frightening features to scare them away.

He tells them all he is having lunch with this scary creature and that his favorite food is them which sends them running for cover. Mouse is feeling pretty smug thinking about how easy it was to trick them.

That smug mouse was very surprised to happen upon the very creature he made up, the frightening Gruffalo. The Gruffalo wanted to eat the mouse on a slice of bread but that mouse thought quickly and told the Gruffalo everyone in this forest is afraid of him.

The Gruffalo laughed and said he would walk behind the mouse to see just how frightened everyone was. It worked like a charm and sent the snake, owl and fox running. The mouse then told the Gruffalo that his favorite food was Gruffalo Crumble at which the Gruffalo turned and fled. The mouse found his nut and all was well!

This delightful story brought to life is narrated by Helena Bonham Carter shows that one does not have to be big to be mighty and is wonderful to share with your children. You can watch the trailer HERE!
