I didn’t watch VeggieTales growing up (I’m too old!), but discovered this fun series of DVDs when I was babysitting as a teenager.  If you’ve never heard the catchy Cheeseburger Song or Hairbrush Song, you and your children are missing out!  ;-)

What makes VeggieTales so special?  Well, the endearing characters that are actually talking fruits and vegetables, for one.  Then every single episode teaches a great life lesson in a fun way, without being too preachy at all.  Kids are learning important things about life and relationships and having fun doing it!  That is awesome.

The newest VeggieTales movie out on DVD is It’s a Meaningful Life, a twist on the classic movie that reminds us not to wish things different and to count our blessings.

It was the biggest football game of his life and Stewart (Larry the Cucumber) had a chance to win it all. Injured in one bad play, his hopes of playing in the Salad Bowl – and living a life of fame and fortune – are dashed forever. Years later, silly-but-sweet Stewart loves his family, friends and job at the toy train factory, but still wonders “what if” things had been different. When he meets a mysterious train conductor who can turn back time, Stewart gets a chance to have the life he always wanted. Will he finally find all he’s been looking for? And what does this mean for those he loves most? Find out in this story of wonder that’s a lesson in being content.

Learning to be content is hard for children and adults, so this is a terrific movie to sit down and watch as a family and discuss afterward.  As in all of the movies, we love the characters, the silly songs, and there is plenty to keep both older and younger children paying attention.  My two-year-old loved the songs the most, and I’m happy to have this in my collection so that when she’s able to understand the topic she can enjoy it even more.  All in all, this is a great movie to add to your VeggieTales DVD collection!
