Get Into the Halloween Spirit with These DVDs from NCircle Entertainment + Enter to #Win 6 DVD Halloween Bundle Now! -- Review and #Giveaway

Disclosure:  I was sent screener copies from the vendor in exchange for sharing an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Halloween costumes..check!  Halloween decorations up...check!  Now to gather up new and some family favorite Halloween DVDs as we count down to Halloween night and trick-or-treating.  Next to Christmas, Halloween is my girls' next favorite holiday, partly because they like seeing how much candy they can get, but also because they love to dress up and pretend to be someone else for the night.  This year the girls surprised me and decided to be witches together.  Usually they never agree on things, especially clothes or costumes.  But, they both saw similar witch costumes with accessories online and thought it would be fun to be witches together.  

In addition to a few favorite Halloween movies that we make a point to watch every year leading up to the holiday, like the classic Charlie Brown one, we now have six new titles that have become instant hits with the girls and ones I know they will want to watch time again, thanks to the folks at NCircle Entertaintment.

A few weeks ago we were sent a sampling of some of their Halloween titles for kids to review.  My girls couldn't wait to start watching them, and after we finished making decorations for inside the house and hanging up ones we bought for outside, the girls gathered blankets and nestled on the couch to watch some of the movies.  And, we continued watching the following Halloween titles from NCircle Entertainment (read on to learn how you can will all six DVDs so you can enjoy with your family this Halloween), until we were all done and the girls decided which was their favorite of them all.

Here are the six Halloween DVDs we were sent from NCircle Entertainment...

Sid the Science Kid: Sid's Spooky Halloween

"It's Halloween! Join Sid and his friends as they discover how bats catch mosquitoes, why spiders are expert engineer web builders, and how skeletons make up the foundation of our bodies. The kids dress up to celebrate Halloween at school, and Teacher Suzie leads them in a special Halloween parade song to show off their costumes! With Sid the Science Kid, Halloween can be spooky and scientific!"

Cat In The Hat Knows a Lot About Halloween!

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Halloween DVD Features: Rating: Not Rated Run Time: 60 Minutes Genre: Children/Family"


"Twelve year old Harry has lived and breathed magic since his early childhood. The problem is that his hometown, Appletown, is not the best place for his natural talent to blossom. Although he rehearses endlessly in his parents' barn he realizes that his dream is just that a dream. One day Harry catches the glimpse of a chance: the New York mayor has announced a magic competition due to the official opening of the Statue of Liberty. Unfortunately, there is a slight problem with this competition, in order to try out one must be trained by a real magician. Poor Harry doesn't know a single one.

Doozers: Spookypalooza

"Welcome to Doozer Creek where the Doozers live! They're green. They're cute. They're three inches tall and they're full of energy, ideas, and enthusiasm! It's Spookypalooza! The time of year when all Doozers get together to spook each other. The Pod Squad makes the spookiest pumpkin ever a cool Pumpkin Doozer made by stacking three pumpkins together. But when their new invention starts rolling all around town, the Doozers have to find a way to reign in their spooky creation! Enjoy four STEM-based adventures with the Doozers!"

Pocoyo: Boo!

"Join Pocoyo and his friends on seven playful adventures. Whether it's playing a new game called Boo!, enjoying a monster mash party or pretending to be Godzilla & King Kong, every day is fun & engaging with Pocoyo and his friends!"

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Tricks and Treats

"A new spooky adventure this DVD brings, with the Cat, Nick and Sally, Fish and the Things. Meet the eeriest critters you've ever seen, arrived just in time for Halloween. There will be lots of tricks and of course, lots of treats, to share with the animal friends you will meet! There's coconut crab, spider monkeys and bats, and plenty more fun with the Cat in the Hat."

As far as favorites, Savannah said she loved the The Cat and the Hat Knows A Lot About Halloween!, while Bella couldn't get enough of Pocoyo: Boo!.  I personally liked the "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!: Tricks and Treats.  We have been studying nocturnal animals as part of school including bats, so it was nice to watch the "Batty for Bats" episode with the girls and tie in things we were learning, with the help of the Cat in the Hat. :-)  Other episodes on this particular DVD included "Aye-Aye! and "Trick or Treat!"

The Sid the Science Kid: Sid's Spooky Halloween also had some great teaching points including learning how baths catch mosquito's and why spiders are expert web builders.  The girls were fascinated with what they learned when watching this DVD, but said because we use the Sid the Science Kid DVDs and episodes a lot for school, they couldn't include as a favorite, as I might make them watch more. :-) Ah, the fun of homeschooling.

Another surprising favorite, even though Bella said it wasn't that Halloweeny was Houdini.  Last month the girls got a magic kit in the mail and had so much fun learning different magic tricks to perform for family and friends.  I had mentioned to the girls how if they kept up their magician training that they could get as good as Houdini.  Bella remembered this name and was excited when she saw the Houdini: How Little Harry Became the Great Houdini.  This movie is only an hour in length so is perfect for kids of all ages, and just the right length to watch in one sitting.  We have watched all the NCircle Entertainment DVDs I mentioned above a handful a times since receiving a few weeks ago, but the Houdini one was been on constant repeat at home and in the car with the girls.  They can't get enough of little Harry and his magic tricks, and have now added magic tricks and magician costumes to their wish lists for Santa.  And, Bella changed her science experiment birthday party theme to a magic show one.  So, now I have 2 weeks to run around and find fun magic trick sets for the kids to do and party favors.  Bella plans to have this DVD on loop in the living room for the kids to watch, and is ready to answer any Harry Houdini questions they may have. :-)

Next to the amazing content of these five Halloween DVDs, the price point -- all under $10 (with most titles only $6.99 each), is perfect for families to pick up all or most of the above and add to their family's Halloween DVD collection, or use to start one to start a new tradition of watching Halloween movies with their families.  Each of these six NCircle Entertainment titles are not only fun and entertaining to watch, but will also get your and your family about Halloween and all the fun that goes with costumes, trick or treating, spooky things, etc.
