The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh-Giveaway

winnie the pooh

Who remembers these cuties from childhood? I adored Winnie the Pooh as a girl and enjoyed the sweet friendships and moral lessons delivered in a fun way.

I had an awesome opportunity to preview The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh DVD in honor of the release of the Blu-ray combo pack on August 27, 2013! I couldn't wait to pop the movie in and get started. We invited a few neighborhood kids over to join the fun and enjoy this special experience with us.  Guess what? Every parent with children very young and even older all whole-heartedly supported us watching this wholesome movie. We were all confident our children would be enriched by this viewing and nowadays that is not always the case when we choose a movie to watch with little ones.

As soon as the music began and we saw that bedroom with all of our favorite characters in stuffed animal form, the kids started yelling out, "There's Tigger! There's Piglet!" They barely sat still! Then the calming music, lovely songs, and familiar voices started telling some favorite stories and we were all mesmerized and completely taken in with the experience.

I usually half watch a movie with the kids, while I am doing other things like checking e-mail or getting dinner started, but this time I just sat there right alongside them, gasping, singing along, and even getting teary. I have to tell you, my absolute favorite part and the part that truly speaks of being a wonderful and caring friend came half way through the movie. I dare you not to cry...

Chistopher Robin: It is a nice house, Eeyore, but...

Kanga: It is a lovely house, Eeyore, but...

Piglet: [near tears] It's the best house in the... whole world.

Winnie the Pooh: [whispering] Tell them it's your house, Piglet.

Piglet: No, Pooh. This house belongs to our very dear friend... Owl.

Rabbit: But Piglet, where will you live?

Piglet: [starts to walk away] Well, I guess I shall live... I suppose I shall live...

Winnie the Pooh: [taking Piglet's hand] With me. You shall live with me. Won't you, Piglet?

Piglet: With you? Oh, thank you, Pooh Bear. Of course I will.

Isn't that just a great example of why we all still love Winnie the Pooh? His astounding support and compassion for others are qualities I want to instill in my children. As we were watching this movie, my 6 year old daughter asked me a few times, "Why are you crying, Mommy?" I kind of forgot about the deep messages but everyone else in the world still remembers. I see quotes from this classic film everywhere, from social media to wedding ceremonies, and jeeze, that little bear still gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes! Winnie the Pooh and all of his buds are iconic and will go on entertaining and teaching children for years to come!

Well, now that I got you all excited, remember, YOU can go purchase--for the first time ever--a Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD digital copy of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh on August 27, 2013! Head over to the Disney website to pre-order and check out some wonderful clips--they will get you so excited!

    I am happy that Winnie the Pooh has survived as a kids story — even in 2013. When I look at cartoons like the Simpsons that rewards sarcasm, bad behavior and disrespect to adults and others — I am happy parents still have a wholesome cartoon for their children to watch.

  13. Every kid needs a buddy. Someone to learn and play with. When I think back on my own childhood most of my memories involve my best girl friends. I know my son will have similar memories as he grows with his friends.
