As a mama to four munchkins, I've seen my share of cartoons. We've gone to the theater, bought DVDs and watched hundreds on television. Of all the bajillion cartoons my eyeballs have (and haven't enjoyed), I hold a few very close to my heart.
Like old friends.
My oldest son, who is now twelve, was always a fan of Winnie the Pooh. I remember him sitting in his footie pajamas, fresh from a bath, watching Pooh before bed. He was about two years old, and those were the days of 7pm bedtimes.
On a rainy afternoon he could sit for hours, watching the movie over and over and over again.
"Up, down, touch the ground...think of things to do....a happy, healthy appetite makes a happy healthy Pooh..."
Excuse me while I sniffle and tear up, is my son really twelve?
I'm very excited that through BlogHer, I was able to receive a copy of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. A movie I used to enjoy with my first child I was now able to enjoy with my youngest baby.
Any mom of more than one munchkin knows how fast DVDs disappear, and our Winnie the Pooh movies have walked off over the years. And with the craziness of raising four kids, my youngest watches whatever is available whenever there is an open television.
We don't get to settle in and enjoy many classic movies such as Winnie the Pooh. Watching the movie brought me back to my days of early mommyhood, and I immediately remembered why I loved the movie so much. The tone of the movie is quiet and soothing, and the messages about friendship are unparalleled. I am convinced that once you love Pooh and friends, you love them forever.
As I write this, all four of my kids are squeezing in one more viewing before I send back my copy. They are snuggled in together, giggling and enjoying a few more minutes in the Hundred Acre Woods.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
Much to my delight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is going to be available for the first time on Blu-ray combo pack and HD Digital on August 27th. For more information you can follow Winnie the Pooh on Facebook or check out Disney's website to watch the trailer and pre-order your copy. I know I'll be buying our family one, because this is one movie my munchkins never tire of. I must admit, I don't either.
As Tigger would say, "TTFN...Ta Ta For Now!"
Now, to enter for a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift Card and a Winnie The Pooh Blu-ray Combo Pack, share with us the importance of friendship, imagination and adventure in your child's life...
