So the summer holidays are looming and the weather’s looking – well, a bit dreary, to be honest.
Fear not, though, because our intrepid Tots100 parent bloggers’ film club members have been checking out some brilliant family entertainment options you might want to check out with your children. And, thanks to Warner Bros, you could even win a bundle of DVDs by answering the question at the end of this post!
First up this month, Mary at Mary Poppins reviewed the Looney Tunes Big Faces box-set. With more cartoons than you can shake a stick at, this box-set includes 10 DVDs with hours of entertainment – and grown-ups will enjoy a trip down memory lane with Bugs Bunny and Tweetie Pie. That’s 15 hours of cartoons – and they’re TOTALLY ACE, says Not Supermum.
Susan K Mann said the Looney Tunes box-set was great for old and young, and the sort of cartoons kids will watch over and over. Mummy Musings also found the box-set was a big hit with her daughter, although Jenny at Gingerbread House says it’s odd watching vintage cartoons – and she’s not sure they’re always better than the modern alternatives. You can also see what Right from the Start, Qwerty Mum, What me and the Boys Say, Major Love of Film and Two Become Four thought of the Looney Tunes box-set.
If you want some entertainment of the non-cartoon variety, then why not check out My Dog Skip? This one went down well with the 7 year old in the Pants with Names household, and Emily loved the cast, which included Kevin Bacon, Frankie Muniz and Eddie (the dog from Frasier!).
Be warned – the film is a tear-jerker, but Becky from Baby Budgeting says it is also sweet, tender, sensitive and uplifting.
Another animal-themed movie to consider is Cats and Dogs – the Revenge of Kitty Galore. This film was reviewed in 3D Blu-Ray by The Syder Family, who found the effects were great, although it does pose the question – how DO they get those animals to act so well?
Thanks to all of our film reviewers this month. If you’d like to win a copy of Cats and Dogs – the Revenge of Kitty Galore, My Dog Skip and the Looney Tunes Big Faces box-set, just answer this question in the comments:
In the classic Looney Tunes cartoons, what sort of animal is Sylvester?
