The Snowman and the Snowdog DVD Review & Giveaway! #WIN

A Rup Life received a copy of this dvd for review purposes.  This post may contain affiliate links. 

We love to sit and watch movies as a family.  Especially my bigger kids!  They are my willing product testers - particularly with movies!  This month we had the opportunity to review The Snowman and the Snowdog DVD!  This is perfect for the cold weather we have been having!

When a young boy and his mother move to a new home, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom.  In the box, he finds a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shriveled tangerine – it’s a snowman-making kit! Later that day it starts to snow.  The boy builds a snowman, and with a little spare snow left over, a Snowdog.  That night they come to life and take him on a wonderful adventure.  As dawn breaks they fly home, but before the boy returns to bed a magical surprise awaits him…

Raymond Briggs’ iconic children’s book The Snowman follows the wonderful adventures of a young boy and the remarkable Snowman he creates.  Adapted for the screen in 1982, the Oscar-nominated film has enchanted generations of children.  On the 30th anniversary of the original film, Briggs has given his blessing to this brand-new sequel.  The magic is about to begin all over again, this time with a new set of friends.

This DVD is available at a Barnes and Noble retailer near you and Amazon. 

My Thoughts:

This movie is based off the book The Snowman.  This was an interesting movie.  There are no words but it is still pretty amazing!  The really tells the story.  An amazing score takes you through the emotions of the little boy and his adventures.  I thought my big kids wouldn't enjoy this because it isn't your regular cartoon story but they both sat and watched.  I guess the only difference is they discussed a lot of what was happening through out the movie.  Truly a unique experience!  A great holiday edition!
