The latest installment of Veggie Tales is The Princess and the Popstar. My kids think that Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber are hilarious, along with all their other veggie friends, so they were more than happy to check out The Princess and the Popstar.
About VeggieTales Princess and the Pop Star: A Story of Trading Places
Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous but lonely world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize that they look almost exactly alike—which leads to the crazy secret plan where they decide to switch lives! As each girl realizes that the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all of their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.
DVD Bonus Features:
“Astonishing Wigs” Silly Songs Sing-Along
“Right Where You Belong” Sing-Along
Behind the music with Francesca Battistelli and Friends
Princess Poppyseed’s Points For Being Uniquely You
There have been many adaptations of Mark Twain's The Prince and The Pauper, starring everyone from Mickey Mouse to Barbie to the Olsen twins to Jodie Foster (Freaky Friday) to Kevin Kline (Dave). This one is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, especially little girls (there's an awful lot of pink). The songs are funny and catchy, and the antics will have your little one smiling and laughing throughout. I love the humorous references to pop culture and the moral lesson about appreciating the life you've been given. I would have loved it even more without the references to God, but that's what this series is known for, so if you're not down with the Christian-centric morality, you'll have to find another DVD to watch.
