Get Lost in the Adventure on DVD & Digital Today!

This past Friday night, we had a fun family movie night.  We ended up watching "Tad The Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas.  Thanks to a fun party pack we were sent from the folks at Paramount Home Media Distribution, we received the DVD for in-home viewing, as well as an explorer fedora hat like the one Tad wears, along with a journal and mini magnifying glass.  

The girls were all smiles when they saw this new DVD, which arrives in stores today, as they loved the first Tad, The Lost Explorer movie, which released back in 2013.  They had hoped for a follow-up to this fun adventure movie, and had no idea they were making another.  So, when they saw the DVD arrive at our door with the explorer goodies, they couldn't wait for Friday to arrive to watch the movie.

Here is more about Tad The Lost Explorerer and the Secret of King Midas:

"Tad and his loveable and zany friends are back in the all-new animated adventure TAD THE LOST EXPLORER AND THE SECRET OF KING MIDAS.  In this highly anticipated follow-up to the 2013 hit Tad, The Lost Explorer, Tad dreams of becoming an archeologist traveling the world, uncovering hidden secrets and lost treasure, but his job working construction keeps him daydreaming instead of exploring.  The chance of a lifetime comes when he is invited to attend archaeologist Sara Lavrof’s presentation of her latest discovery–the papyrus that proves the existence of the Necklace of Midas, the legendary King who turned everything he touched into solid gold.  When an evil billionaire forces Sara to help him find the enchanted talisman, Tad must rescue the girl of his dreams on a trip around the world, in this new hilarious, action-packed adventure the whole family will love!

A recipient of the Dove Seal of Approval, TAD THE LOST EXPLORER AND THE SECRET OF KING MIDAS is rated PG and is an ideal family film loaded with fun, laughter and adventure.  The film will be available on DVD (with Digital copy) and on Digital beginning today, April 10th."

Doesn't this look like a fun family-friendly movie?  It really was.  We had so much fun watching, and thanks to the goodies we were sent, the girls put on their hat and grabbed their explorer notebook and magnifier and pretended to be archaeologists trying to help Tad rescue the girl of his dreams on a trip around the world.

What we loved about this movie, just like with the first Tad, The Explorer movie is that the story line is engaging and will have you laughing and smiling all the way through the movie.  My youngest, after watching the movie, said she now wants to be an archeologist and travel around the world uncovering hidden secrets and lost secrets, and maybe some dinosaur bones along the way.  :-) 

Thanks to books we have read and movies the girls have seen i the past, they were aware of who King Midas was, so when they saw that this movie was about Tad traveling to hear Sara Lavrof's presentation about her latest King Midas discovery, they couldn't wait to see what Sara found and what fun adventure this trip would take construction worker by day Tad to daydreaming archeologist on an adventure of a lifetime.

I could go on and on about how much fun we had watching this movie, but if you saw Tad, the Explorer back in 2013 or thereafter, then you know how great this Dove-Approved family friendly movie is.  And, now fans of Tad the Explorer can join him on another fun adventure that will your whole family glued to the television as you see the story unfold.  My girls can't wait to watch this movie again, and have already watched the first movie after seeing this new release, so that they could relive the fun action-packed adventure that make Tad their favorite explorer.

Here is a fun Tad the Explorer maze you can print out and share with your child prior to having a fun family movie night to watch the new Tad The Lost Explorer and the Secret King Midas. 

This is one movie your whole family will love watching together, and will be talking about for some time to come, as you wait for more Tad the Explorer movies to release.  We can't wait for more Tad the Explorer movies, but will have this new one and the previous release to enjoy until then.

  1. My family and I watch animated movies together on our family movie nights. This is the first time I've heard of this movie, and it looks great. My daughters will enjoy the adventure. We will have to add it to our movie must-watch list. Thanks for the printable maze.
