My Thoughts:

If you follow my blog, then you know that we are dog lovers, and enjoy watching family friends films where dogs are involved.  So, when I heard above Charlie: A Toy Story arriving on DVD on April 2nd, I had to get my hands on a screener copy to watch with my family.  We received our review copy this past weekend, and watched it Saturday night.  Even though our daughters are too young to really appreciate the lessons shared in this film, I plan to share this movie with them once they get a little bit older.  This film, however, is one worth picking up to share with your whole for a great family night together.  Children will learn the importance of using your imagination, being in yourself, and about dreaming big and following your dreams. 

In today's day and age, when technology is at the forefront, it is hard for children to be creative and want to use their imagination.  Instead, they rely on video games and television to think for them.  But, when you sit down and watch this film, both you and your child will remember the importance and magic of one's imagination.  Thankfully, my girls are young enough that technology doesn't fully consume their day to day lives, so I get to watch them being creative and using their imagination.  But, with my older nieces and nephews, I can see that creative side is not tapped enough. 

So, after we watched this movie, I passed it along to my sister-in-law to watch with the kids, and they, too, found it thoroughly enjoyable.  this is definitely one movie worth watching this year, and sharing family time with.  You can't help but laugh and smile through the entire film, and walk away with a desire to dream big. ;-)  

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