Spring Fling Feature #11: Veggie Tales

Spring Fling: "New Beginnings Event"

I'm inviting you to hop over and visit our featured Spring Fling Feature Sponsor. Feel free to shop from their site/ store and follow them through the social media links provided below.


The Buzz:

I've found that so much is commercialized nowadays that the essence of important holidays have lost their meaning completely.

Ask a group of children what they think Christmas is about and 9 out of 10 of them will say Santa Claus (if not all of them.) The same with Easter....apparently it's all about the Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs!
While all the fun stuff is okay, I personally feel a child SHOULD be taught why Christmas and Easter is really special. The Birth of Christ and His Resurrection is important and a child should know the "Reason" behind these "Seasons"

That's why I love and respect Big Idea. They bring laughter and fun into a child's life with their Veggie Tales books, CDs, DVDs, games and toys, while introducing them to the Word of God.


E.B. Mommy's Report:

As we enter into the Easter season, think of picking up the much awaited, latest Veggie Tales release-the 'Twas The Night Before Easter DVD.


The DVD encourages the young viewer to be sensitive to the needs of those around them, to help, love and serve those in need, just as Jesus did.

Here's a brief synopsis of the storyline....

It's Easter time in Crisper County and cable news reporter Marlee Meade (Petunia Rhubarb) is hunting for a way to help others. On a tip that the old town theater will be shut down, Marlee cooks up a plan to save the stage and make a difference through the power of musical theater! With a cast of costume-clad townies, massive props and a 20-foot robot rabbit -- "Up With Bunnies" is hatched! There's only one thing missing -- the star of the show!

When news spreads that singing sensation Cassie Cassava (Melinda Doolittle) is arriving to perform in her hometown church's Easter service, Marlee gets worried. Concerned about the competition, she schemes to steal the starlet for her own pageant! But when things go haywire, will it be curtains for Marlee's dreams -- or will she discover the true meaning of Easter and what helping others is really all about?




....
And for those car drives running errands and to/from school or just while the kids are playing at home, order a copy of A Very Veggie Easter CD


The CD features 12 Easter songs that I personally feel are some of the most mellow Veggie Tales songs I've heard so far. It s honestly a nice change and while listening to the songs, I felt like I was transported back to the middle pew in the Anglican church I used to attend as a little girl. But don't worry in true Veggie Tales fashion, you do have the wacky ones like How Now Easter Cow.

Favorites in this CD include Hosanna Loud Hosanna, The Easter Song and I Know That My Redeemer Liveth.

You can listen to snippets from each track here.

We saved the Bob and Larry plush to give Bunny girl on her birthday and said it was from Bunny Boo....


You should've seen the tickled expression on her face!

Both plush toys are made of soft velour material and feel like velvet. I have no qualms in letting Bunny Boo play with the same as the quality of the plush is superior and I don't have to worry about him swallowing fine cloth fibers!

*Both Bob and Larry helped Bunny girl blow out the candles on her cake!*

If you have a family tradition of making up Easter baskets, make this year's Easter basket a meaningful one with these featured gifts that will bless and encourage your little ones.

We LOVE Veggie Tales here! They are a truly fun way to learn about God and, like you said, the reason for the seasons :-)
