Pooh Bear DVD Giveaway!
A couple of weeks ago, we headed to the city for a special blogging event - a Teddy Bear's picnic to watch the new Winnie-the-Pooh DVD.
This is a movie Abbey has been excited about for months, one we had shown her the previews to and were promising to take her to the movies for the first time to see it. When we found out it was heading straight to DVD, we were disappointed... until this invitation came along.
Abbey ran around the room cuddling all the soft toys - Pooh Bear, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore - before settling herself and her favourite teddy bear, Frosty, into beanbags. They each held balloons and watched, intrigued, as the search for Eeyore's tail began on the screen.
She's watched this movie again since - and again and again - and absolutely loves it. As do I - there's nothing about Winnie-the-Pooh that a parent needs to worry about. No violence, no special jokes for parents that make the kids feel like they're being talked over - just good, old-fashioned movie fun. It's a short movie too, at only an hour (which might be one of the reasons it went straight to DVD), which is perfect for a young child's attention span and screen time.
Oh, and at the end of a bloggers' event there's one more thing to look forward to... a goody bag. This was Abbey's first and she was very excited!
I have a copy of the Winnie-the-Pooh DVD (a double pack containing the movie on DVD and Blu-Ray) to give away!
All you have to do is leave a comment, and I'll choose a winner. Easy!
(Giveaway ends at 5pm AEDST on November 2nd, 2011. Open to Australian residents only.)
Thank you to Porter Novelli for inviting us to the DVD screening, and to Claire for arranging our invite!
