So, can I just tell you that the Veggie Tales Rock? We just recently purchased this DVD and my kids, 6, 4, & 2 have watched it no less than 50 times. We've traveled between states the last two weeks, and the kids watched this in the car. The second this DVD is over my kids yell, CAN YOU START IT AGAIN? I am telling you, they watch it 3 or 4 times in a row. I have only heard it while driving and have not even been able to watch it, yet, and I laugh the whole way through. They jokes are so funny, and my kids don't even realize where they come from, ('Tin man. Rusted!') So funny!
I personally am not uber-religious, but I am determined to raise my childred to be good people, and always to be kind and think about the consequences of their actions, and effects on others, and these videos each have several good lessons in them that the kids don't even realize they are learning. We also have some really good conversations about WHY things are happening in the movies, which sparks my kids to think, which is always my main goal. The Veggie Tales movies do that. They teach kindness and understanding, and my kids really think about what is happening and why, even my two year old has verbally expressed positive messages from the movies.
I can't say enough about these movies. These are a definite buy. If you have young children and are looking for another way to help them understand the importance of kindness towards others, and any other life lessons, these are excellent tools...and funnier than heck for you to watch, too.
And for the less 'religious' types, but 'I am still a good person' types, like myself, who have found themselves a little lost in the whole religion shuffle, you should know that these are not sickly 'dripping' with religous gobbledy gook.(No offense to any religions, people, or races here, whatsoever!) But these DVDs have simple lessons, with a bible verse thrown in at the end that actually help in the undertanding, in a very nonthreatening, non pushy way - and trust me, if it was pushy, I would feel it...
As I said before, my children are 6, 4, & 2, and they all love this DVD enough to watch over and over, literally, once it ends, they watch it again. I highly recommend this DVD, and I hope this review was helpful!
