The Little Engine That Could DVD Review + Giveaway - THREE WINNERS

It is no secret that my little man is a big fan of trains, cars, trucks, and any other type of transportation. I knew that he would be an instant fan of The Little Engine That Could DVD that will be released tomorrow, March 22nd.

Synopsis:
“I think I can, I think I can…” The timeless story comes to life in this all-new, feature-length film filled with fun and adventure! When Little Engine (Alyson Stoner, Cheaper by the Dozen) must leave Dreamland to deliver toys into the real world, she sets her fears aside and learns that with a little determination and courage, anything is possible. Featuring an all-star cast, including Whoopi Goldberg (The View), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) and Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), this “fun family film” (Francine Brokaw, Los Angeles Family Magazine) is one you’ll enjoy again and again.

Trailer:


Our Thoughts:
I think we all know the story of The Little Engine That Could, but this DVD makes sharing the story with our children more fun. I was blown away by the animation and all of the life lessons hidden in this movie. It was better than I could have ever imagined and I absolutely love having this as part of our collection. The characters make the DVD fun and exciting for both kids and adults.

Evan absolutely adores this movie and has wanted to watch it multiple times each day since we received it. He laughs along with the characters and he cracked my mom up by reciting many of the lines that he's already memorized when we took it to her house this weekend.  He has been having bad dreams for a while, and this DVD really hit home with him that bad dreams are just dreams.

As I mentioned before, this DVD is absolutely adorable and would make a fantastic addition to any family's collection! To make it even better, Universal partnered with the Starlight Children’s Foundation on The Little Engine That Could release and will donate 50 cents per DVD sold.

Buy It!
The Little Engine That Could debuts on DVD and Digital Download on March 22, 2011 and will retail for $19.98.
