Care Bears Belly Badge Rock DVD Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

Carebears 2

Disclosure: I received the Care Bears Belly Badge Rock DVD at no cost to facilitate this review.

Just when you thought life couldn't get any sweeter - here come the Care Bears! This time they are shaking it up with 4 all new episodes about friendship and honesty. On this new DVD, released October 28th, you will find these wonderful exciting episodes (along with some brand new songs):
  • "Show of Shyness
  • "Bully Exposed"
  • "Over Bearing"
  • "Untruths & Consequences
Bring on the Belly Badge Rock! It's all music and cheer until Harmony BearTM loses her singing voice before the big show, and Kaylee, a visitor to Care-a-lot, stops playing her instrument because of a bully. Perhaps a bit of Care Bears courage will save the day? Then, when Funshine Bear™ and Grumpy Bear™ realize they have a wild child on the loose, and Wonderheart Bear™ tells a few little lies, the bears discover how important it is to have good manners and always tell the truth! - Taken from Product Description

Eva Carebears 1

As you can tell, we love the Care Bears in our house! It wasn't only Eva that was thrilled to watch this new DVD - her youngest brother, Levi (age 2), is arguably the Care Bears biggest fan. And really? Who can blame them? The Care Bears have become timeless, classic friends that I grew up watching and now get to share with my own children. Even though their colors are a little brighter, and a few new friends have joined them along the way,  they are still the same fun-loving bears and the message they share is still the same. There are so many cartoon choices today, so many more than when I was growing up, and as a Mom, I don't want to just let my kids sit in front of the TV all day. Not that there is anything necessarily wrong with a little mindless silliness every once in a while, but what makes the Care Bears stand out from the rest of today's cartoons, are the lessons my children take away, all while having fun, and even learning some new songs along the way.

Carebears 3

We loved all the episodes (approximately 88 minutes total of Care Bear fun) on Belly Badge Rock, but our favorite was Bully Exposed. We have all been the "new kid on the block," whether it's at a new school, or a new church, or moving to a new home. All of this newness can be hard, especially for kids.  I love, that this episode teaches my children that when they feel like they are being singled out, it's okay to be different and to never give up on being who they are - it's what makes them so special and unique. It also sends the message to my children that they can be brave in helping someone else who might not have the courage to stand up for themselves and that they might just be the kind of friend another kids is looking for to encourage them to stand tall.
