Veggie Tales is popular with the little ones and The Little Drummer Boy is no exception. I showed it to 4-6 yr olds while they were allowed to play with toys. I could see they were watching it, so it did get their attention.
My first reaction after seeing this movie for the first time was disappointment; only because there previous release - "Princess and the Popstar" - was such an outstanding DVD and by far my favorite. I really anticipated Drummer Boy to be better than the Popstar.
However, my kids love this DVD and their favorite character is Bernie, the comedian. They recite his corny jokes all day and have them memorized. Another hit for the Veggie Tales franchise!
This DVD did not meet my expectations at all! The creators of Veggie Tales have lost their creativity on this one. They simply copied (name for name and almost word for word) the claymation movie of the same name. Since there is no "official"story of The Little Drummer Boy, I was hoping for something original! I did like the 8 Polish Foods of Christmas - that was original!!
