I have shared on many occasions that we love The Care Bears in our house. I grew up watching Care Bears movies, and am so happy to now be able to pass down my collection of plush bears to my girls, and sit and enjoy the newly revamped Care Bears which airs daily on The Hub TV Network. In addition to watching this popular animated series daily on television with the girls, I love picking up the DVDs to add to my girls' growing TV to DVD collection.
My husband and I have been talking about the upcoming winter games, and how much we are both looking forward to watching the athletes compete. Well, Savannah overhead us a couple of weeks ago and thought we were talking about the Care Bears, as she knew this upcoming DVD was releasing soon. She got all happy hearing how much my husband was looking forward to watching the games on television, as he is usually not a fan of Care Bears. He usually has something to do when the girls want to sit and watch one of their Care Bears DVDs with him. :-) So, when we received the screener copy in the mail on Friday, Savannah couldn't wait to show the DVD to my husband. And, when he arrived home that night, she ran over to him and said she had the games on DVD, ready to watch. He didn't know what she was talking about at first, but then she showed him the new "Care Bears: The Care-a-thon Games" DVD. She told him she remembered him saying how excited he was to see the games, and now she had it. :-)
Seeing how excited Savannah was to watch this new release with him, my husband couldn't get out it this time. And, that night after dinner while I was picking up, my husband and the girls watched this DVD, which includes 4 popular sports-themed full length episodes from the animated series on The Hub TV Network. While my husband is not a fan of Care Bears, he did say that he liked the positive messages and lessons each of the episodes shared, including teamwork, courage and sportsmanship. When I asked the girls what they thought of the DVD, they both smiled and gave me two thumbs up. :-)
If you have a Care Bears fan in your house, or grew up watching the Care Bears, you will definitely want to pick up a copy of this DVD when it hits store shelves tomorrow.
