Hands down, our favorite holiday video this season is this assortment of short movies on DVD called Winter Wonderland from Hit Entertainment. 60 minutes long, it has short episodes from Barney, Kipper, Bob the Builder, Pingu, Thomas & Friends and Fireman Sam.
Both my boys love this, which is a feat in this house as it’s hard to find something that’s entertaining for both a 4 and 1-year-old at the same time. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that each episode is so short but they both laugh, clap and sing to these various episodes that are all winter-themed.
It’s currently on sale for $13.49 on Amazon and it’s eligible for free shipping when you spend $25 or more.
And for fans of Disney’s My Friends Tigger & Pooh, here’s a new movie about the Super Sleuth’s centered around Christmas. The group finds a reindeer tangled up in a string of jingle bells – they help him out of the tangle and go on a mission to try and return him to the North Pole. It’s cute, as the show is, entertaining and festive. It runs for 44 minutes. It’s also on sale on Amazon for $19.99.
One note too today: today ends Amazon’s 99-cent present wrapping deal. Order these DVDs or other items off Amazon and you can pay 99 cents to have each present wrapped. I recently placed a big order to be shipped to my parents in Florida and paid to have a number of things wrapped – in my case, it saved money. Normally I’d have everything shipped to me, I’d wrap them and then head to the PO to reship. It saved time and cash. Anyway, check it out by the end of the day today (or do it later but you’ll pay more than 99 cents per item.)
