Babar and Father Christmas DVD Review & Giveaway 3 Winners!

When I was a child, one of my favorite shows to watch was Babar. I always got excited when it came on HBO in the mornings before school. I also loved reading the books. Now that I'm older and have children, it's so nice that I am now able to share Babar books and movies with them. Now one of my favorite holiday movies is available on DVD. Babar and Father Christmas just came out on DVD this November, just in time for Christmas!

About the DVD
In this delightful holiday tale, Babar's children write a letter to Father Christmas to ask him to visit Celesteville at Christmas. Their letter, however, never arrives because it is stolen by Babar's Arch-enemy, Rataxes the Rhinoceros, who wants all of Santa's toys for himself! Can Babar find Father Christmas and save the day for Celesteville?

Includes 2 Classic Babar TV Bonus Episodes:
  • A Child In the Snow 
  • The Gift

My Thoughts

I couldn't wait to watch Babar and Father Christmas with my children. I've read Babar with Josiah before and he absolutely loved the book. We've seen a few of the cartoons on tv, but rarely get to watch it, so this was quite a treat.
Just as I remember, Babar and Father Christmas was a wonderful Christmas story and full of life lessons. That's what I love about Babar- there is always an important lesson you take away from each episode. Josiah sat and watched, completely engrossed in the movie. It was a bit too much for Liam, but he did like the 2 bonus episodes, which are a little shorter.
I think this is a great family holiday movie to watch together and definitely puts you in the holiday spirit. Children 4+ are the prime audience for this feature. Although it isn't action packed like so many other movies and shows out there, it draws children in by the actual story and animation. I, personally, like the nostalgia factor.Click here to learn about other Babar DVDs now available.
