Holiday DVDs for the Whole Family! – Review by Cara Potapshyn Meyers
Tis’ the season to be caring with the all-new CGI holiday special Care Bears: The Great Giving Holiday on DVD, Digital Download, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Currently airing on the Hub Network in 72 million households, the popularity of the iconic Care Bears continues with this latest magical adventure about the true meaning of giving.
Come along to Care-a-Lot and join Great Giving Bear, Harmony and all their cuddly Bear friends in this new adventure filled with holiday cheer! Great Giving Day and hibernation are just around the corner…and so is trouble! The unbearable Beastly tries to spoil the holidays, the Great Giving Day Pageant is overrun by a troublemaker and Cheer’s helpful nature means she might not gather enough food for hibernation. Only with teamwork and caring can the Bears come together in friendship to save this special time of year.
My little niece and nephew adore the Care Bears! Their delight with this DVD was no exception. They loved seeing their “friends” in a Holiday DVD. For them, it was nothing short of magical! Now they think that the Holiday season is this week! Because they are continuing to watch this DVD now that the Holidays are almost in full swing, they can enhance their merriment through watching this terrific, heartwarming DVD!

The magical Mumfie’s White Christmas arrived on DVD, Digital Download, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View November 12. Join Mumfie, Scarecrow and Pinkey on their unforgettable quest across sea and snow to ask Santa for a wintery white Christmas. Though their journey takes some unexpected turns, with the help of familiar friends like Whale, Napoleon and the mysterious Black Cat, as well as new ones like a high-flying reindeer and a magic little snowbird, Mumfie discovers the value of kindness and the true meaning of Christmas. Perfect for sharing with young children over the holidays, the “gentle, smart and beautifully animated” (New York Daily News) Christmas special plus three holiday-themed episodes of the show are now available on DVD.
My niece and nephew weren’t as familiar with Mumfie, but now that they have been introduced to him, he is one of their favorites! Since I chose a day to review this DVD with them, when it was actually snowing outside, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! They wanted Mumfie and friends to come to their home to see the snow falling outside! It was terrific seeing them so engaged in a DVD, and the storyline was particularly special. This sweet DVD should definitely be found under the tree this year!

They each made me want to enter this season with a tender heart, the compassion to help others, and bring out the “goodness” not only within myself, but among others.
