Intense In Tents – A Review and Giveaway


I’ve always loved tents.

One of my very earliest memories of childhood was draping a large table cloth over a folding card table and crawling underneath with a pile of pillows and a shoebox filled with toy cars and plastic soldiers.

VeggieTales DVD Giveaway

My kids enjoyed more than a few VeggieTales DVDs back in the day. I remember the shows being packed with goofy humor, silly songs, and a positive message. To this day, I am still haunted by Larry the Cucumber’s lament to his hairbrush.

But that was years ago, and I didn’t even know VeggieTales was still around until the people at Big Idea Entertainment asked me to host a giveaway of their latest DVD release.

It’s called Princess and the Pop Star: A Story of Trading Places. Yes, it’s their version of Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper, which has been done many, many times in film and TV.

Only, never with vegetables before.

This is a fun, high-energy movie that teaches girls that they should be happy as themselves, and not try to reach their dreams through other people’s lives. Told with all the usual silly songs and one-liners that will have your kids cracking up.

If you’d like to win this family-friendly DVD, leave a comment on this post telling me, “I want!” I’ll pick a winner next week.
