My Thoughts:

I surprised my oldest daughter, Savannah, with the screener copy of Littlest Pet Shop: Little Pets, Big Adventures, for Christmas, and it turned out to be one of her favorite gifts.  Is your child a fan of this popular animated series which airs on Saturday mornings on The Hub TV Network?  If so, they will love this upcoming release, just as much as my daughter does.

This animated series stars Blyth Baxter, who tries her hardest to save the Littlest Pet Shop, a day care for pets.  The story lines are easy to understand, even for the littlest of fans.  I love how the underlying messages include teamwork, the importance of friends and being kind.  And, if you have seen this series, you know that the animations are colorful and keep children engaged from start to finish. 

Since the animated series began in Nov. of last year, Savannah has already acquired a large assortment of Blythe dolls and Littlest Pet Shop pets to play with.  And, every time the show airs on Saturday morning, she makes a point to gather up some of her favorite pets and Blythe doll, and sits them next to her on the couch to watch Blythe's new adventures with the pet shop.

This new release is made up of 4 episodes that will delight any Littlest Pet Shop fan, and also act as a great introduction to the pet shop and Blythe, for those who are not familiar with this animated series.  So, make sure you mark you calendar for Jan. 15th, when it DVD is available in stores. Or, pre-order now, so it will arrive to your doorstep to be enjoyed by your children.
