NCircle Entertainment Fall DVD's: Houdini and ABC Monsters {Written by Emilee}


NCircle Entertainment asked me to review two of their newest DVD's. I've always been impressed with NCircle Entertainment so I was thrilled for the opportunity. Plus, they want to give away two DVD's to one lucky reader so be sure to enter the giveaway below.

Houdini

 Houdini Synopsis:

Twelve year-old Harry has lived and breathed magic since his early childhood. The problem is that his hometown, Appletown, is not the best place for his natural talent to blossom.  Although he rehearses endlessly in his parent’s barn, he realizes that his dream is just that – a dream.  One day, Harry happens upon an opportunity of a lifetime--the New York mayor has announced a magic competition due to the official opening of the Statue of Liberty.  However in order to try out, one must be trained by a real magician.  Poor Harry doesn’t know a single one.  As fate would have it, Harry’s father runs into the renowned town magician, the Great Tesla and he promises to see Harry.  Despite the young boy’s lack of knowledge, Tesla sees potential in Harry and decides to give him a chance.  He invites him to his home, accompanied by his niece, Beth, and his assistant Amrold.  Will Harry have what it takes to make it as a true magician?

In my opinion:

I've been interested in magic since I went to Hollywood's Magic Castle for my twenty-first birthday. So, I definitely was interested in watching Houdini. This was a French feature length animated film about a young boy named Harry who became the greatest magician of all time. I enjoyed watching it with my five year old. It opened up the concept of magic and after watching the film, wanted to show me his own magic tricks. I was on the edge of my seat and hoping everything would work out for him. Of course, we know that he becomes a true magician but how. He goes through challenges and it didn't come easy for him. He had to work really hard to become what he dreamed of becoming. It was a well done film and I know you will enjoy it as much as I did.

ABC Monsters



ABC Monsters Synopsis

Meet the ABC Monsters!  They are big, hairy and not very scary.  The ABC Monsters are on the loose and only Alice, Brian and Cherry Berry can catch them.  Twenty-six cuddly ABC Monsters live within the walls of Capital Castle.  Each monster represents a letter of the alphabet, but should any of the monsters go missing for longer than a day, all the letters will be wiped clean from every book in Capital Town, so it’s very important to make sure that all the ABC Monsters are always back in Alphabet Gardens before sundown.  This isn’t as easy as it sounds.  The ABC Monsters are curious and happy creatures so they tend to wander off from Alphabet Gardens and get lost in the process.  In each adventure, Alice and her good friends Brian and Cherry Berry must search high and low for one of the missing monsters.  Get set for a spellbinding series of magical adventures that engages preschool children’s imaginations, while making learning exciting and entertaining.

In my opinion:

My five year old loved ABC Monsters. It is definitely geared toward preschool aged children. In this DVD, children will learn the letters of the alphabet. There are adventures, songs and discoveries. As a parent, I wasn't a huge fan but after watching my five year old enjoying it, it became clear that it was an educational show. ABC Monsters also helps children learn about word building and phonic skills. If a DVD helps my child learn and engages their imagination, then I definitely recommend ABC Monsters.

One of my lucky readers will receive both DVDs: Houdini and ABC Monsters. If you have won a contest on my blog in the past, please don't enter. Thank you.
