Gigi, God's Little Princess, is a delightful animated little girl who learns lessons about life, God, and family in each book or movie. In Gigi's Big Break, Gigi learns what God has to say about honesty and about becoming a big sister. This DVD features two 30 minute animated movies, as well as bonus features. This DVD is intended for girls age 3 - 8 years old.My 4 year old loves Gigi! She enjoys learning about being God's Little Princess along with Gigi. The Gigi movies are refreshing, charming, and utterly feminine -- Gigi's Big Break is no exception. We first discovered Gigi when my 10 year old was young enough to still enjoy them. My 4 year old has grown up with the series, and always looks forward to receiving a new one. She loves being a Princess, alongside Gigi.Gigi's Big Break begins with "The White Lie" which really turns into more of a whopper than a little white lie. Gigi discovers how lies continue to build until they are totally out of control. Gigi also learns about God's forgiveness and how much better it is to be honest, even if we are in trouble.The second movie on Gigi's Big Break is "The Pink Surprise", where Gigi learns she's going to be a big sister. As usual, Gigi's imagination runs away with her and she develops misunderstandings about what a new baby will mean for her family. Gigi's parents help her understand what the coming changes will really mean for her.The animation of the Gigi movies are somewhat simplified, but that doesn't detract from their charm, or the stories. It also helps to keep the cost of the movies affordable. We definitely recommend Gigi's Big Break, and all the Gigi products, to Christian families with young girls. Disclosure: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.
Book Sneeze has provided me with the pleasure to review the movie Gigis Big Break. Gigi is a little girl in a Christian family. The tag line to her movie series is Gigi, Gods little Princess. This DVD contains two stories, White Lie and Pink Surprise.White Lie is a story based on how a small lie can swell into something much larger. Gigi breaks a vase while dancing, and concocts this story about robbers and her next door neighbor. I love the way the parents handle Gigis story without putting her down, while still letting her know how bad lying is.Pink Surprise is a story where Gigi finds out her mother is expecting a baby! She is excited until she talks to her friends and finds out that babys poop, pee, and cry. Most importantly her friends tell her that they baby will take all the attention away so that her parents will no longer want her. So, she packs her bags and prepares to leave. The scene where her parents explain that she is always wanted and loved is just too cute.I really enjoyed these videos. They have wonderful stories attached to them, even if the animation isnt cutting edge. Leah really enjoyed watching Gigi Princess too, even though shes a bit young to fully grasp the morals of the stories. This DVD and even the series are perfect for little girls growing up in Christian families. I highly recommend Gigis Big Break!**I was provided with a copy of Gigis Big Break by Thomas Nelson to review this film**
Gracie and I watched Gigis Big Break and we both really liked it. Below is Gracies personal review of the two shows on the DVD.Show one is The White Lie and it discussed the importance of being honest. In it Gigi learns that no lies are white lies. She also learns that you get in less trouble when you fess up about something you did. Finally it taught Gracie that the reason we feel yucky when we tell a lie is because God speaks to our heart and lets us know we are wrong. Gracie really liked this story because she thought it was a fun and told the story using a little girl that was a lot like her.Show two was The Pink Surprise, and it talked about the experience of becoming an older sibling. She says it teaches that babies are always special, and when we are worried we can talk to God about it. I like the fact that the stories were easy to follow and fun. They also incorporated the scriptures that supported the lessons and were taught on a level that my 7 year old could understand.
