It’s that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you’re like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!)
For the 2016 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don’t we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2016 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day!
Today, I want to talk about something everyone loves: Movies! Here are a couple of great movies that would be perfect for stocking stuffers for the kiddos in your life!
In the extended adventure “A Christmas Wish,” Kate and Mim-Mim with their friends in the fantasy world of Mimiloo use Tack’s letter launcher to send their Christmas wishes to Santa! When the letter launcher malfunctions, can Kate and Mim-Mim save Christmas?
In addition to this Christmas adventure, this DVD features two additional tales in which Kate and Mim-Mim go snow bowling, get stuck inside an ice cave, and try to find their friend Chilly in order to prevent the Winter Waterfalls from melting! These two stories are called “Snow Bowling” and “Chilly the Snowman.”
This DVD includes the digitally restored version of this classic animated film along with two special features – a Never-before-seen Roald Dahl Documentary and Before/After Restoration Video. The documentary features an interview with Roald Dahl in which he talks about several of the well-known books he has written including “The BFG,” “The Witches,” and “Matilda.”
If you’re not familiar with “The BFG” book or this film, Sophie, an orphan, is snatched from her bed by an awesome giant who whisks her away on a magical, thrilling, and funny adventure. Unlike scary giants such as the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, and the Bonecruncher, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a good giant who blows sweet dreams into the bedroom windows of children as they slumber. When Sophie learns that a monstrous crew of meanies is off to England to gobble up innocent boys and girls, she sets out to stop them once and for all, with the help of her new, rather large friend.
