From time to time I have the opportunity to review products, but this is the first time my younger children have gotten to help me out. They were quite excited when I told them that they were going to get to review a movie. Disney is preparing for the release of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and the kids got to have a sneak peek.
I grew up loving Winnie the Pooh; my sister and I listened to our album (yes, vinyl and on a turntable) over and over. We knew the stories and all of the songs by heart. Eventually we outgrew our Winnie the Pooh album, until I was 10 and our baby sister was born. Then we got to listen to it all over again.
Yesterday, I got to share this sweet movie with my youngest three. We snuggled up on the sofa to watch Winnie the Pooh and his friends face challenges together and overcome them by helping one another. We all laughed when Christopher Robin rescued Winnie the Pooh from the honey bees by jumping into a mud puddle and putting his umbrella over them. The little boys also noticed that Christopher Robin didn’t leave his friend behind; when Pooh couldn’t make it over a log, Christopher Robin ran back to get him. When I asked them about their favorite scenes, Sunshine commented about some of the clever lines, like Winnie the Pooh declaring he was “seasick” from “seeing too much.” Eby and Little Man agreed that they liked The Blustery Day story best of all. They laughed throughout it and Little Man commented that Winnie the Pooh helped Piglet when he was about to fly away. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh will be available for the first time on Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD Digital on August 27th. Even our littlest children can experience the sweet friendships of Winnie the Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods. I’m pretty sure I need to own this one. For more information on this timeless film, you can visit their website or Facebook page.
Now, to enter for a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift Card and a Winnie The Pooh Blu-ray Combo Pack, share with us the importance of friendship, imagination and adventure in your child’s life…
