The Little House That Stood (A Giveaway)

One of the perks of having a blog (besides getting corporate attention for complaints) is that occasionally I receive offers to review some great products.

Today, I am reviewing the new VeggieTales DVD The Little House That Stood.

In this newly released DVD, Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber join forces to help children learn about making good choices, and I appreciate that this is a life lesson that will benefit children (and adults!) of all ages. The Little House That Stood is a parable (an Earthly story with a Heavenly meaning) of the wise and foolish builders.

The first part of the movie is a “remake” of the children’s classic – The Three Little Pigs.

When The Three Pigs roll into Cabbageville (I love it!) looking to build some new houses, they meet one builder with a plan and two without a clue!  Larry builds with hay, Mr. Lunt builds 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 that when they follow God’s blueprints, they can stand strong when the storms come.
I love that the main theme of this segment reminds us that it’s always better to make a good choice rather than a fast, easy one.
Have you ever wondered what happened before Humpty cracked? The bonus story The Good Egg of Gooseville reveals what happened before Humpty cracked?
In this cute bonus story, “Humpty (Bob the Tomato) is the mayor of Gooseville, a quiet little town filled with a bunch of lively characters!  From Jack & Jill’s missing crayons, to the Three Bears’ lawn problems, all the way to Little Bo Peep’s lost sheep, Mayor Humpty is literally driven up the wall with this pickled pack of problems! Now far away from the gripes and complaints of his neighbors, Humpty declares “with all these neighbors in need, I’m better helping just me!” Will all the town’s heroines and all the town’s men help bring Humpty to his senses again?
The Little House That Stood puts a new spin on some classic fairy tales we’ve all heard from a very early age. This 49-minute DVD is great for children of all ages as our favorite Veggie Tales characters make us laugh while reinforcing moral values. But are you ready for the best part?

    Celery – fresh, crisp, cool celery. I hear that it uses more calories to chew and digest it than it provides. Wish chocolate did that! Lol
