VeggieTales The Little House That Stood DVD Review

Releases March 5, 2013

VeggieTales doesn't require too much of a introduction because they have been around since 1993 and are well know by many. Seriously find me one person who doesn't know the VeggieTales song??? I still remember the first time I saw a VeggieTales movie (of course back then they were videos). They are very well known for their fabulous, fun, faith based movies that teach children important life lessons.

A moms review:
The Little House That Stood is the newest DVD in the VeggieTales series. It releases on March 5th. The DVD is about 49 minutes and features lots of great bonus features as well

Other Bonus Features Include:
  • Behind the Scenes with Big Idea
  • Sing Alongs
  • History of Mother Goose
  • English and Spanish Subtitles
  • Discussion Guide
  • and more!

The Little House That Stood is fun, engaging and educational, just like all the other VeggieTales movies. In this DVD children will learn about two fantastic biblical parables (not pair of bulls, Silly Larry), Matthew 7:24-27 and Luke 10:27-37. 

The first parable children will learn about in the DVD is, "The Wise Man and The Foolish Man". The parable is retold using the fairy tale classic, "The Three Little Pigs". Children will learn the importance of building and living their lives on a strong foundation which of course is God and the Bible. They will also learn about making good choices.

The second parable that children will learn about is, "The Good Samaritan." This parable is retold using several Mother Goose tales including, "Little Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty, etc".  Children will learn about being selfish, helping others and doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.

I can tell you that my kids definitely learned something from the DVD because the next day after watching it they were in the living room building forts and talking about how they needed to have a strong foundation. It was really cute how they kept saying, "our foundation was not strong enough and that is why it fell down".

I always love the subtle adult humor they sneak into the DVDs like when Bob mentions that the title Bob the Builder will never stick, lol.

When the Three Little Pigs roll into Cabbageville looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue! Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt with bricks, but only Bob builds his houses on a firm foundation - following the wise plans from the Master Builder's Handbook! Will the Little Piggies make the right choices when it comes to building their houses - and their lives - on solid ground? Find out in this parable that shows kids when they follow God's blueprints, then can stand strong when the storms come!

Gwyns review (6 yrs old):
I really liked the movie we watched it a bunch of times. I learned about strong foundations and about being nice to others and about being a big helper. The Tooth Day song is really funny.

My son's favorite character is Larry (& LarryBoy, because "basically they're the same, but they're not). My favorite is actually Bob. :) (Possibly because I can relate to the chaos that happens all around him.)

Dawn said...

We love them all - would be impossible to pick a favorite. Sorry!

Laila said...

Love Veggie Tales! LarryBoy is my son's. It's a tie between Larry and Bob for me.
