Family Movie Nights Just Got Better with the DREAMWORKS 10-MOVIE COLLECTION - Review and #Giveaway

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


I don't have to remind you of the craziness that has been 2020.  While I can't wait for the year to be over, I am also grateful for the extra family time Covid has allotted so many families, with parents working from home, and kids being home more.  Even though my girls are homeschooled, we still had outside classes and extra curricular activities that kept them busy most nights and weekends.  When Covid hit and everything was cancelled, so was all their still, leaving them home 24/7.  I will not lie, there have been times I wished we were back out and about and that the girls were busy with others things.  But, the rest of the time, I have enjoyed being home with the girls, and having  my husband working from home, as we get to enjoy meals together at reasonable times, and have got to enjoy more movie nights and walks in the park.  Has your family been watching movies to pass the time at home, and as a family?  If so, what have been your family's favorites?  My girls are all about animated movies, so when we received the Dreamworks 10-Movie Collection a couple weeks ago, they had a new mission to watch all ten movies before the end of November. Even though they have watched the ten movies that make up this collection, they were movies that you don't grow tired of and can watch time and time again. 

Here are the movies that make up the Dreamworks 10-Movie Collection, which released back in September on Blu-ray and DVD...


1.       Shrek

2.       Madagascar

3.       Home

4.       Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron

5.       How to Train your Dragon

6.       The Croods

7.       Kung Fu Panda

8.       Boss Baby

9.      Abominable

10.    Trolls

Do you see favorite titles from the list above that your family would love to watch?  I, for one, was excited to see this wonderful assortment of movies all in one collection, including the Trolls, Abominable and even favorites of years past including Shrek and Kung Fu Panda.  My girls were excited to watch The Croods, as they are eagerly awaiting The Croods 2, which is set to release around Thanksgiving.  And, my husband got hooked on Boss Baby after my youngest watched it over and over again a few years back.  Now, whenever it is on television or they see streaming, both my husband and daughter will watch together, and laugh as if they have never seen the movie.

Like I said, my girls created a challenge to watch all ten movies that make up this collection, and are almost at the end of their challenge. We just have Trolls and How to Train Your Dragon left, and plan to watch them this week. :-)  And, once we are done with all ten movies, my girls have already said they want to watch them again.  With the winter and snow days fast approaching, have a great collection of family-friendly movies is perfect for those days that you just want to cozy up under warm blankets and watch a good movie. And, with the Dreamworks 10-Movie Collection, you will get just that -- a great movie that will entertain every member of your family.

The holidays are also fast approaching, which means you will be starting your holiday shopping soon, if you haven't already.  This new 10-movie collection would make for a great gift idea to gift your family from Santa, or to pick up and have on hand for Friday night family movie nights.  My girls look forward to our Friday family movie nights, and these movies have been making them even more fun and memorable.  So, why not consider picking the Dreamworks 10-Movie Collection to surprise your family with, or wrap and leave under the tree. However you plan to share with your family, just know that the ten movies will delight everyone, and are movies you will never grow tired of.  ***Be sure to read until the end of this post, as I am offering one lucky reader the chance to win a copy of this 10-Movie collection. :-)

  1. I am most excited to watch Boss Baby First. I haven't seen that movie in a long time.

  2. Shrek and Spirit were family favorites and still are but we dont own copies any more. My niece watched spirit everyday at nap time for a year when she was a baby. I think it was the narrators voice that just put her right to sleep! I would love to surprise her with it.
