Easter Gift Ideas -- The Jungle Book: The Movie (Review)


"There's trouble in the jungle, and as usual, Mowgli and Mani are at the center of it all! While they enjoy their time drumming away at logs in the jungle, Shere Khan plots to put an end to the noise. Meanwhile, Tabaqui is stuck in a well, Appu gets lost, and there's something fishy going on at the Cold Lair... Will Mowgli escape the clutches of the evil Shere Khan, and manage to still have time to join his friends in the jungle rhythm? This action packed feature length film promises to bring you the best of The Jungle Book. "


My Thoughts:

What do you do when you are under the weather?  In our house, we love to gather up all the blankets and pillows in the house and snuggle up together on the couch, watching some of our favorite family-friendly movies, as well as new ones.  Luckily, I have been reviewing some great movies for my Easter Gift Guide, and had a few more to watch and review, including The Jungle Book: The Movie, along with two Berenstain Bears DVDs -- all from Kaboom!

Still recovering from food poisoning and the stomach flu on top of it, I was looking for some good movies that would put the girls in better spirits.  I knew Jungle Book: The Movie would fit the bill, as Savannah loves watching this new animated series on Disney XD.  And, with the added bonus of Mowgli and Baloo collectible toys that come with the limited edition gift set exclusive to Walmart, I knew I would be able to put a smile on their faces -- and, I did! :-)

Jungle Book was one of the first movies I introduced Savannah to from Disney, as it was my favorite growing up.  I enjoyed watching both the original and Jungle Book 2 versions, and was excited to hear that Disney XD would be airing this new animated series.  Out of all the kid's shows I watch with the girls, I have to say that I love this animated series the most.  The animation and scenery are breathtaking, and the story lines are easy for young children to follow and enjoy.  And, who doesn't love Mowgli, Appu, Baloo and Mani and other popular Jungle Book characters?  

The girls and I loved this full length movie (which is only 62 minutes long), and have seen it twice so far, with more views expected soon. :-)  Arabella fell in love with Mani the monkey, as she has a fascination with monkeys, while Savannah is still partial to Mowgli and Baloo.  Fans of Jungle Book will love the ending, which is filled with music the kids the love to dance to.  Even though my daughters were under the weather, they mustered up enough energy to get off the couch and dance around at the end. :-)

So, if you are looking for a great family film to watch with your family, why not consider picking up this new release from Kaboom Entertainment?  And, with Easter right around the corner, the limited edition DVD gift set, which includes the Mowgli and Baloo collectible toys would make for a great Easter basket gift idea.


Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this DVD from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
