VeggieTales: It's A Meaningful Life (review and giveaway)


VeggieTales is always finding new stories to tell and new ways to teach viewers invaluable lessons. (Even adult viewers can learn a thing or two from VeggieTales.)

Recently, the newest DVD, It's A Meaningful Life was released for sale on store shelves. This is a story just in time for the holidays and I think it would be perfect for any family.

Here's the synopsis:
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.
We were sent a copy to review so we made plans to have a family movie night that evening. Eliana went down for bed and I popped some popcorn for the hubster, Alex, and myself.  Then, we sat down together and hit "play".

Alex was into this story from the very beginning. He focussed on every part of every scene. Maybe he was just waiting for the next scene with a train in it, maybe not. Whatever the reason, he walked away from that show with a new lesson in his back pocket. In fact, the other day he turned to me and said, "Mommy, God has a plan for my life. That's what Bob and Larry said!" (Talk about something to melt my heart!)

Since we first watched this DVD, Alex has wanted to watch it every single day. I can't allow him to sit for an hour in front of the TV every day, but we do watch bits and pieces together from time to time. He has his favorite parts and we know where they are. :)

As a mom, I love that he loves this DVD. Anything that will teach him how important our choices are and how to be content with what we have is something I don't mind being played over and over again.

Buy It! You can purchase It's A Meaningful Life for around $14.99
