What do you do when everyone (except your husband) is sick in the house?  Pull out some of your favorite family-friendly movies, and snuggle up on the couch with a warm blanket and a lot of liquids.  Well, that is what we have been doing lately, as the girls seem to passing their head cold back and forth, and then to me.  In addition to watching some of our favorite movies (some even 2-3 times in a row), we have been using this time to watch new releases I recently received.  One family friendly movie that we watched and loved was THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC from Shout Factory!  This new release, which is available on DVD and Blu-ray is available now exclusively at Walmart (BUY NOW).

Fans of Selena Gomez will love hearing songs from her throughout the film, but for the most part, the cute animals including Thunder the cat will steal the show and your hearts. I have shared in the past how we are an animal loving family, and that Savannah can't get enough of cats, even though we only have dogs.  So, when she saw Thunder on the front cover the DVD, she couldn't wait to watch it.  

Here is the official movie trailer so that you can see what the movie is about:

Looks like a good family movie, right?  It really it.  We enjoyed watching the handful of times we have seen it so far.  And, the girls can't wait to go their grandparents house when they feel better as they picked up the 3D version for them to watch on their television. :-)

If you are looking for a good family movie night flick to watch, or even ideas for stocking stuffers this upcoming holiday season, why not consider checking out THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC.  Once you start watching this cute movie, you will see why my family and others who have seen it both on DVD and Blu-Ray and when it was released in theaters and on VOD, love it so much and highly recommend this animated movie.

More about the movie:

"THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a whimsical animated family adventure, bringing to life a unique story with a great sense of humor, positive values and universal appeal.  Brimming with spectacular animation and endearing characters, this internationally acclaimed motion picture delivers a fun and captivating movie experience for the entire family.

The film tells the story of Thunder, an abandoned young cat who stumbles into a magical old mansion operated by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos. Owned by a retired magician, the house is occupied by an assortment of his wacky assistants who don't all welcome the new house guest. But when the magician lands in the hospital and his scheming nephew puts the mansion up for sale, our young hero and his new friends join forces to save their magical home.

Filled with laughter and adventure, THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a wonderful tale that you and your little ones will love.
