The music was phenonmenal. and the bonus music video with the newsboys was great. The kids loved the movie and so did I. I really appreciated the scene where the balloon popping was actually toned down a little, so that my 3-year old was not actually afraid of Dr. Flurry.
In another great release from "Big Idea" productions, The League of Incredible Vegetables is another story in the long live of great videos that teaches a value with songs, animation and good clean fun. I personally really liked this story (as well as my 7 year old) because even as an adult we all need to learn the lesson of overcoming our fear and trusting God. All your favorite VeggiTales characters get to be super heroes in this adventure as they team up to help Larry Boy, and in the process, learn how to handle fear. Using the story of David against Goliath as an example, Junior learns that God is with him and that there is no need to fear.
The Newsboys do another incredible job at creating a great song and the DVD comes with the music video. There is also an "League of Incredible Vegetables" app in the android marketplace as well. The silly song isn't my favorite (which happens to be Dance of the Cucumber), but the Bad Guys & Penguins are pretty funny!
Every year my son gets a Veggie Tale CD in his Christmas stocking. This was the video for 2012. The whole family enjoyed this one. It seems Veggie Tales went through a little slump after their early years - still creative videos with good and meaningful storylines. But somehow it wasn't like the early years. This one felt like they were trying to return to some of their roots. The adult humor mixed with the storyline for kids was there. And the lesson was clearly there. Hope this is a trend that continues.
