Review by Heather.

Just in time for Easter, VeggieTales is releasing THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD, an all-new VeggieTales story premiering on DVD and available at Walmart (if you purchase it there you can receive an exclusive FREE 24 piece puzzle! You also get a digital copy when you purchase from Walmart through VUDU so you can watch the DVD on the go!) and other retailers. THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD is not only a delightfully funny new story but one that also teaches children valuable life lessons.

THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD reunites fans with popular VeggieTales characters including:

Larry the Cucumber – Goofy, green and always a little bit silly!
Bob the Tomato – He’s the practical one who likes to make sure there’s a lesson to learn, but always gets pulled into Larry’s silliness!
Jr. Asparagus – This little 6-year-old Veggie is full of fun and reminds us that little guys can do big things too!
Plus – The French Peas, Madame Blueberry, AND MORE!

THE LITTLE HOUSE THAT STOOD parodies two popular nursery rhymes – The Three Little Pigs and Humpty Dumpty – to help impart valuable life lessons. The Three Little Pigs meet the Wise and Foolish builders and learn that by making good choices, they can build a house that will stand against any storm! In the “The Good Egg of Gooseville” we find out what happens BEFORE Humpty cracks, in a good neighbor story where we learn why it’s a nice to lend a little hand to those in need.

Once again, Veggie Tales did not disappoint! My 7 year old son, almost-5 year old daughter and I enjoyed this cute video based on the timeless tale of the three little pigs! And again, it was jam packed with lessons to be learned, applicable to us all. We have found that we’re never too old for Veggie Tales in our house! The kids enjoy the silliness of the characters, I enjoyed some of the clever and witty references to modern culture, and we all came away with a fresh understanding of the importance of a firm foundation in all areas of life, especially when the storms of life threaten to crash in on us.

It was followed by a shorter rhyming story about “The Good Egg of Gooseville” which was cute. It was fun to try a pick out all the familiar nursery rhymes as we watched, and learned the importance of sacrificing for others and truly loving our neighbors.

I particularly enjoyed the catchy “Solid Stuff” song, and now that my older child is reading fairly proficiently, it’s fun to watch the Sing-Along versions included in the Bonus features, and sing along! The silly song, “Happy Tooth Day” is not one of their best, but what is a Veggie Tales movie without a silly song?

I was surprised at how short the first feature “movie” was, but I guess it comes in handy when you’re looking for something of value to watch when you don’t have an hour, or if you have a child with a shorter attention span. We always give Veggie Tales 2 thumbs up, and this was no exception. I will always be grateful for guilt-free screen time for my kids, instilling valuable lessons in their hearts, and they love the silliness and cute characters.

Here is a $3 off coupon you can print off to use at a physical store for The Little House That Stood DVD. This would make it a great deal to put in an Easter basket!  Just click on the coupon below to print.
