Getting in The Holiday Spirit With Holiday Movies! #PBSKids #SkipRope

Chelsea really enjoy watching the holiday classics and especially the ones where it has her favorite characters from her favorite shows like Daniel Tigers Neighborhood, Kate & Mim Mim, Wild Kratts and even Ronald Dahl’s classic The BFG: Big Friendly Giant. I felt that these movie titles were very cute and my daughter really enjoyed watching them. We have actually watched all 4 of them at least 5 times already. They seem to be my daughter’s favorites at the moment. 


creaturechristmasIn this special fun-filled holiday movie, the Wild Kratts crew is resting and relaxing as they get ready for the Wild Kratts Christmas party after a busy year filled with amazing creature adventures! It’s too bad their arch villains Donita Donata, Gaston Gourmand, and Zach Varmitech are about to spoil the fun. The sound of jingle bells is replaced by alarm bells as the team discovers that Donita, Gaston, and Zach are capturing baby animals from around the globe. With Christmas fast approaching, can Martin and Chris rescue their baby animal friends and return them to their homes in time for the holidays?


daniels-winter-wonderlandThis new DVD features four stories including “A Snowy Day,” “Daniel’s Winter Adventure,” “Neighborhood Nutcracker,” and “Baking Mistakes.” In the stories “Daniel’s Winter Adventure” and “Neighborhood Nutcracker,” Daniel discovers that when sledding, ice skating, or learning a dance for “The Nutcracker” ballet, “if something seems hard to do, try it a little bit at a time!” In addition to these grr-ific stories, kids can watch Daniel and Miss Elaina play snow astronauts in “A Snowy Day,” and Daniel and Prince Wednesday make cookies with Baker Aker in “Baking Mistakes.”

Daniel Tiger is one of our absolute favorites because I used to watch Mr Roger’s Neighborhood and I am glad that the next generation has a show based on the same characters to watch and love. I feel that this would be a great option for the stocking stuffers.

“Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish”

kate-mim-mim-a-christmas-wish-dvdIn 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.”

Chelsea and I feel that this show is absolutely adorable. Chelsea really loves this series. I love that it promotes imagination and learning.

Roald Dahl’s The BFG

coygcyggqgk-movieposter_maxresThis 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.
