There have been many great children’s DVDs released in the past month, and a couple that have just come out!  Here are some of our favorites:

Shaun the Sheep: Animal Antics

What It’s About

(Synopsis) Get ready for farm-fresh fun and laughter with Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard buddies, as they set the scene for more mayhem on the farm. Laugh out loud as Shaun tries to outfox a fox, Bitzer discovers his jazzy side, and the sheep try to sell everything on the farm to the highest bidder. Shaun and his friends deliver seven hilarious adventures full of animal antics that will make the whole family cock-a-doodle doo!

What we thought…

We’re crazy about Shaun the Sheep and collect every DVD we possibly can!  These episodes (released in late July) are just as hilarious as the previous ones.  My favorite is one in which the sheep go a little crazy selling things for the farmer at a little roadside stand and end up selling everything in the farmer’s house while he’s away!  The expressions on everyone’s faces are so funny… I still don’t know how a whole series is run so successfully with no dialogue but this is one of our top favorite cartoons, one that even my husband and I enjoy watching.  Recommended!

Episodes:

  • Foxy Laddy
  • Whistleblower
  • Frantic Romantic
  • Who’s the Caddy
  • Everything Must Go
  • In the Doghouse
  • Cock-a-Doodle Shaun

Where to find it…

Madeline and Her Friends

What it’s about…

(Synopsis)  Join Madeline, the smallest of 12 little girls in Miss Clavel’s class, and her best friend — her loyal dog Genevieve — as they take the fun to town with six outrageous adventures inspired by Ludwig Bemelmans’ best-selling children’s books!

What we thought…

More Madeline!  This cartoon is sooo charming and old-fashioned, I love it!  The adventures on this DVD center around Madeline’s friends and their antics.  I had to laugh at Madeline’s Singing Dog when the girls take Genevieve to the Opera and she’s kicked out because she is singing along!

  • Madeline and the Soccer Star
  • Madeline’s Singing Dog
  • Madeline and the Missing Clown
  • Madeline and the Talking Parrot

Thomas & Friends: Day of the Diesels – The Movie

What it’s about…

(Synopsis)  The Steamies and the Diesels face off in this action-packed movie adventure! When a fire breaks out on the Island of Sodor, two new firefighting engines – Flynn and Belle – join Thomas and Percy to save the day! When Thomas starts spending all his time with Sodor’s newest heroes, Percy is left feeling alone. Diesel sees this and invites Percy to the Dieselworks, where Percy is made to feel special by none other than the master of mischief Diesel 10! But Percy doesn’t know that he is part of Diesel 10’s master plan to take over the Sodor Steamworks. Can Percy lead the Steam Team to reclaim the Steamworks or will the Diesels make it their new home? It’s full steam ahead to sure-fire excitement in this all-new movie from Thomas & Friends™!

What we thought…

If you’re a fan of Thomas, you’ll love this movie!  It has all the heart that Thomas & Friends episodes have, only this hour-long movie is even more exciting and entertaining.  There’s plenty of action and some mystery, too.  I recommend it!

Where to find it…

You can find it at Amazon.com for $12.99 starting September 6!

Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy – The Movie

What its about…

(Synopsis) Angelina shines brighter than ever in this all-new movie! Ms. Mimi announces that there’s going to be a big talent show at Camembert Academy – and the winner will walk away with the Shining Star Trophy. With celebrity guest judge Perry Parmesan deciding the winner, every minute of practice counts. But when Angelina goes out of her way to help her friends find their special talents, she has little time to work on her own routine. Who will take center stage and win the Shining Star Trophy? Watch as Angelina follows her heart to become a true shining star!

What we thought…

Emma really enjoys these Angelina Ballerina movies, and I can see why:  They are full of dancing (which she loves) and music, and are a colorful 3-D look, not a regular flat cartoon.  There is always a little lesson on dealing with people (or, er, other mice).  Angelina is a kind and selfless character, an example I don’t mind my daughter watching.  If your kids enjoy Angelina Ballerina, definitely add this to your wishlist!

Where to find it…

You can purchase Angelina Ballerina: The Shining Star Trophy at Amazon.com for $11.99.

I received review copies of the DVDs above in order that I might share my thoughts on them with you.  All opinions are 100% mine.  :)  My Amazon affiliate links can be found in this post.
