CareBears Movie Dvd Review and Competition!!

In about 1985 at the top of my Christmas list was a CareBear, there was something about those bears which made them every child's must have toy! Everyone at my primary school had one, and mine was the yellow one - Funshine.

I have to admit I was ecstatic when Abbey Home Media asked us to review the new Care Bear Double Movie Dvd pack, although slightly concerned that perhaps Boo would be less impressed.

Settling down to watch the first movie 'Carebears to the Rescue' Boo was instantly very keen,  the colours are much more vivid than the 1980's version and the bears are less cute and more cool! Funshine definitely wasn't this colourful in 1985!

Boo really enjoyed the DVD, it was very action packed and left him on the edge of his bean bag on more than one occasion! Boo instantly loved Bedtime Bear and the naughty 'Grumpy'. We've watched it a couple of times since it arrived and it is definitely a feel good film - perfect to watch during these cold winter months!

As soon as the first film had ended Boo asked to see the next one 'Share Bear Shines', we managed to make him resist until the following day! Boo found the second film slightly harder to watch, the story line is a little more involved and cleverly teaches about the joys of sharing..something Boo isn't very good at! So perhaps we need to watch it a little more...

Whether you're nostalgic like me or just keen to find some great entertainment to keep the little ones quiet during the Christmas holidays the CareBears won't disappoint!
