Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish

Do your kids watch a show called Kate & Mim-Mim? My girls can't get enough of this show and have been asking for toys, books and DVDs relating to this popular about a little girl and purple plush that comes to life and travels to a magical land called Mimiloo.  So, when I heard they were releasing a holiday DVD and book, I couldn't wait to request and share with my girls, and you!   

Last week we received the DVD and book and I shared them with the girls.  They were all smiles, and couldn't wait to watch the movie first.  There were excited to find that the DVD contained three full length episodes along with a special music video called "Winter Wonderland."  We settled in on the couch and watch this DVD.  At only 45 minutes in length it was a perfect length to enjoy in one sitting.  The girls couldn't stop kicking their feet on the couch in excitement.  They especially loved the "A Christmas Wish" episode, which the book I will share later in this post goes with.  

We have been getting into the holiday spirit by watching holiday music and listening to Christmas songs. This new DVD featuring their favorite characters, Kate and Mim-Mim, got them even more excited about Santa's upcoming arrival.  :-)

Here is more about this recent DVD release, followed by the holiday book that is a perfect compilation to the DVD...

"Public Media Distribution, LLC announced today it is releasing three stories from the popular series “Kate & Mim-Mim” on the upcoming DVD “A CHRISTMAS WISH.” Along with featuring three adventures, this DVD also includes a bonus music video called “Winter Wonderland.” 

In the story “A Christmas Wish,” which is a special extended adventure, Tack’s letter launcher is used to send Christmas wishes to Santa. After blasting off for the North Pole, the letter launcher malfunctions, landing in the wrong location and destroying the beautiful Christmas tree Kate and Mim-Mim decorated with their Mimiloo friends. With their Christmas tree ruined and no way to send their letters to Santa, can Christmas be saved? In addition to “A Christmas Wish,” this DVD features two more exciting tales in which Kate and Mim-Mim go snow bowling, get stuck inside an ice cave, and try to find their friend Chilly in order to prevent the Winter Waterfalls from melting. 

CHRISTMAS WISH” is now available on DVD as of October 4, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 45 minutes and its SRP is $6.99. Additional information about the stories included within this DVD is below.

 “Christmas Wish (extended adventure)
It’s a stormy Christmas Eve and Kate worries that Dad won’t get home in time to put the star on the Christmas tree. In Mimiloo, Kate tells her friends all about Christmas, and everyone is excited to send a wish to Santa Claus. But when Tack’s letter launcher malfunctions, it looks like Christmas will be ruined!

Snow Bowling
Kate wants to build a snow fort, but there isn’t enough snow in the yard. In Mimiloo, Kate and her friends go snow bowling in the Winter Waterfalls. They use snowballs as bowling balls and snowmen for the pins. But when the gang slides down into an ice cave, Kate will have to think creatively to help them escape.

Chilly the Snowman
Kate’s sad because her snowman is melting! In Mimiloo, it is a sweltering hot day so KateMim-Mim, and their friends head to the Winter Waterfalls to cool down – only to find that all the ice is melting! To re-freeze the waterfalls, Kate will have to find Chilly the snowman who keeps the Winter Waterfalls cold, snowy, and frozen.

Inspired by a real life little girl, “Kate & Mim-Mim” follows the fantastical adventures of five-year-old Kate, who, together with her toy rabbit Mim-Mim, travels to the fantasy world of Mimiloo where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate. In each story, Kate and Mim-Mim and their group of loveable friends discover exciting new places and set off on adventures, all in the hope of solving a puzzling problem Kate has encountered in the real world.

Exploring themes of friendship, adventure, and problem solving, “Kate & Mim-Mim” encourages children to use their imaginations and work together, believing no problem is ever too big to solve!"


If the movie wasn't enough, fans of Kate & Mim-Mim can also enjoy this cute holiday book..."Christmas with Kate & Mim-Mim.

About the Book:

"Celebrate Christmas with Kate and her best friend Mim-Mim in this 8x8, perfect for preschoolers with big imaginations! In the magical land of Mimiloo, Kate worries that a blizzard will prevent her friends' letters from reaching Santa Claus. Read along to find out if Kate can save Christmas!"


Even though this book has a different title from the DVD, it is the still the same story of Kate and Mim-Mim heading to Mimiloo where they try and get their letters to Santa and then back home in time to see if Kate's wish of her Dad being home to put the star on the top of the tree and before Santa's arrival.

My girls loved the DVD, and were excited when I read this book at bedtime. They were surprised that I had a book that went along with the movie.  Savannah said, "Now I can read the story without having to watch the movie," while Bella said, "I will watch the movie." Gotta love sisters. :-)

My girls can't get enough of the DVD and storybook.  If you have a Kate & Mim-Mim fan in your house, you will want to pick up these two things to surprise them with.  They would make a great part of your advent countdown, or simply share to get into the holiday spirit.
