Winnie the Pooh on Blu-Ray & DVD Giveaway – Closed

Winnie the Pooh is based on one of Canada’s own bears and has become an icon around the world today.  The latest Winnie the Pooh movie arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD today – October 25th!

Here’s a Synopsis:

Disney returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh.” Featuring the timeless charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo – and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Ever have one of those days where you just can’t win, Eeyore?” asks Pooh. Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some honey. Disney’s all-new “Winnie the Pooh” movie is inspired by three stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art.

I remember reading and watching Winnie the Pooh as a child, right up into my adult years.  There is something about this kind soft hearted bear and his friends that brings me a strong sense of calmness and a true picture as to what friendship is really all about.

I eagerly anticipated watching this movie with my family.  As we sat down and put the movie on, I quickly reverted back to the days when I watched the show on Saturday mornings.  Just like the tv show, the movie is read with a narrator as he flips through the pages of the book during the movie.

There are plenty of catchy tunes and the movie truly shows children what friendship is all about when they all come together to find Eeyore a tail and then try to capture the “Backson”.  There is a slightest chance the kids might be a touch scared with the introduction of the “Backson” (a mythical creature that Owl misinterprets for the words “Back Soon”.  However, like most Pooh movies, it is very mild – even Piglet isn’t overly scared.

While watching the movie, it became very apparent to me DD doesn’t  know the classic Winnie the Pooh I once enjoyed.  We were able to watch about 1/2 the movie before she wanted to turn it off and move onto the next show.   I was a touch disappointed,  Winnie the Pooh has been entertaining children for 85 years now, and my daughter wasn’t overly engaged with this classic bear.

I love Winnie the Pooh, I have plenty of  Pooh related toys and items around my house which I received as gifts as a young adult.  I’m hoping as time goes on, DD will come to appreciate Christopher Robin and his friends.

To celebrate the release of Winnie the Pooh, here are some fun activities you and your family can work on – I’m going to get DD started so she can get to know Winnie, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo and all the Pooh characters a little bit better.
