PLUS: �Ever wonder what happened before Humpty cracked? �Humpty (Bob the Tomato) is the mayor of Gooseville, a quiet little town filled with a bunch of lively characters! �From Jack & Jill's missing crayons, to the Three Bears' lawn problems, all the way to Little Bo Peep's lost sheep, Mayor Humpty is literally driven up the wall with this pickled pack of problems! Now far away from the gripes and complaints of his neighbors, Humpty declares "with all these neighbors in need, I'm better helping just me!" �Will all the town's heroines and all the town's men help bring Humpty to his senses again?

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Aug. 24 2014

Worked fab when doing the 'wise and foolish builder' theme. All the veggie tales are great :) It is not scary but does have the 3 little pigs woven into the story which may bother some. The top corner was damaged when I got it, but it wasn't for a gift so no big deal

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about this new DVD March 1 2013
By Julieanne at JoyInOurJourney-dotcom - Published on Amazon.com
We enjoyed the first movie selection of the DVD, a combination of The Three Little Pigs nursery rhyme from Mother Goose and the parable Jesus told in the Bible about the builders that built houses on solid rock and on sand. It was typical VeggieTales style, all the way.

The "Silly Song with Larry", one of the pieces you can count on while viewing a VeggieTales DVD, didn't disappoint us, although it might have been a bit odder than normal. :)

The last piece of the video was all about selfishness and helping and serving others. It combined pieces of many Mother Goose nursery rhymes and poems into the video, which could have been very confusing to many children who haven't been read the nursery rhymes.

My girls, however, were not happy about one very obvious part of this movie. The mayor, whom we don't know if he is a paid government employee or an unpaid volunteer, is getting tired of serving his community and dealing with their problems and complaints. He decides to leave and go on vacation, leaving his community in disarray. The final conclusion by him toward the end of the story is that he should be serving his community all the time. Sounds good - at first glance. But the kinds of things he's asked to help with sometimes look just like economic handouts instead of gathering friends together to help solve a problem. My girls noticed this right away and complained about it to us. "Let's give everyone all these handouts and do everything for them so they don't need to work together as a community," grumbled one of our daughters. It's true - most, if not all of the help that is given is offered by the mayor himself, and not as people working together to solve a problem of their own.

You may think we are really reaching far to come to this conclusion, but we all agreed that if the leader in the movie had been a pastor, we would have had entirely different conclusions. However, since everyone in the community was always whining and complaining to the mayor to solve their problems, this bothered us. We're not anti-government, but we also believe in churches helping and serving, and in individuals helping and serving themselves and others, not just relying on the government to do it all for them.

As well, we didn't see anyone in the movie praying and asking God to help them first with their struggles. Instead, they went directly to the mayor first. We personally don't think that the mayor was representing God or Jesus, just in case you wondered. This could have been a great opportunity in the movie to show children how to handle stress and financial difficulties they will encounter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another family favorite for my 2-8 year old crowd! March 11 2013
By April E. - Published on Amazon.com
My family have been fans of the Veggie Tales movies ever since my oldest daughter was a preschooler. We enjoy the fun twist they take on Bible stories and other stories, to teach Christian values to children. The humor always captures the interest of our children, as well as tickling the adults' funny bones with a few little gems (like references to other movies and books) that the children may not catch. Best of all, they are completely safe and family friendly. As my 2 year old says, "I dub Veg Tades!" (translation: "I love Veggie Tales!")

The latest movie, The Little House That Stood, did not disappoint us at all. It held up to all our expectations of a Veggie Tales movie. It uses two different fairy tales to teach two different lessons. The first story uses the Story of the Three Little Pigs to help illustrate Jesus' parable of the wise and foolish builders from Matthew 7. This town has three builders, who each build a house for one of the three little pigs. However, only one builder is building on a firm foundation. This story is very cute and illustrates the importance of making wise choices and building our life on the foundation of God's Truth.

The second story on this DVD uses the familiar nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty to show the importance of helping our neighbors. Humpty Dumpty is the mayor of Gooseville, but he'd rather take care of himself than help the citizens of his town. When he runs away to a self-serve resort, things quickly fall apart in Gooseville. Everyone, including Humpty Dumpty, soon learns that life is better when we set aside selfishness and take time to help our neighbors. Though this story didn't reference a specific Bible story or verse, it was still a good lesson.

We've had this movie for less than a week, and it's been watched every single day since we got it. My 2 year old, 4 year old and 6 year old like it the most, but everyone has watched it at least once. We'll enjoy watching it many more times, as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Little House That Stood --but kind of wavers March 9 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Veggie Tales has built a solid reputation of using Bible stories or moral themes inspired by scripture to set the stage for whatever lesson the video has set out to teach. Do the creators of Veggie Tales use straight up Bible stories all the time? No. Do they use other types of story telling to get these themes across? Yes. They've used a variety of scenarios, superheroes, and all while weaving in Biblical principles.

Even so, The Little House That Stood crosses into territory which I find uncomfortable.

As a former teacher (and mother), I value the use of Mother Goose nursery rhymes, Aesop's fables, and fairy tales as a method of teaching moral life lessons (because that's their nature and origin of these stories). However, in the case of The Little House That Stood, what I see happening is a combining of these stories with scripture.

As a Christian, I cannot find this method of weaving fable with Biblical parables to be effective, useful, or helpful in training children in how to understand God's word as the foundation of our lives.

If anything, I believe The Little House That Stood (unwittingly) portrays scripture (which is God's authoritative word) and specifically the parables of Jesus as simply another literary wisdom source rather than the source of all wisdom, which undermines the important message Veggie Tales has spent the past twenty years proclaiming.

There is no doubt children will enjoy this video. The music is lively, the stories are interesting (although I found the Humpty Dumpty inspired "The Good Egg of Gooseville" a bit lacking in coherency) and the animation as always is excellent.

However, there are better Veggie Tales videos which get the point across even while expounding on a different theme or topic. I'm not saying don't watch The Little House That Stood, but rather be prepared to discuss how God's word is not the same as a fairytale or fable, but gives us the true, firm foundation we need to live as Christians.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Bonus Was Best March 9 2013
By Heather Hart - Published on Amazon.com
I received a free review copy of this DVD for my family, and I have to tell you that I had to force it from the DVD player after the 15th time through. The kids loved it! However, when I got ready to write my review, I realized that we had been watching the bonus feature repeatedly and I'm not sure they watched the featured film more than once. The Good Egg of Gooseville (the bonus show) is a fun film that teaches children about loving their neighbors. The featured film was about the three little pigs and was supposed to depict the parable about building your house upon the rock - but again, my kids don't seem to have liked that one as much as the bonus film.

We are lovers of all things Veggie Tales - a love that I didn't come by until high school. As others have said, you're never too old for Veggie Tales. I'm torn between the original videos that used Bible stories to these newer movies that teach using other fun stories. On the one hand, the older videos are extremely inaccurate in their attempt to be funny, and the newer ones are based off of secular stories giving them a biblical twist. Both are cute but shouldn't be considered Bible lessons - just fun Christian based films.

Wonderful aide for teaching small children about Jesus and the other people of the Bible. Also, the lessons taught are the things they encounter everyday.
