A New Veggie Tale ~ Veggietales Pistachio: The Little Boy That Wouldn't DVD

I wonder if the creators of VeggieTales realized how popular bright talking vegetables portraying healthy relationships and life lessons could possibly become! A truly healthy lesson in listening to your parents is brought to you by the vegetables kids would rather watch than eat!

VeggieTales Pistachio: The Little Boy that Wouldn't, in true VeggieTale form, combines delightfully bright, eye-popping animation with important life lessons for children and humourous puns, word play, and spoofs parents can snicker at. Pistachio--more than reminiscent of another infamous wooden boy--struggles with a bit of a behaviour issue. Created by toy maker, Gelato living in the town of Pistachio makes the dangerous error of proceeding through life un-heeding of his father's wisdom and sage advice. A "whale" of trouble ensues but can the truth and listening to a parent's reasoning save Pistachio and his eclectic family from the belly of the fish?

These colourful veggies are definitively easier to convince my children to stomach than most! My 9 year old son has enjoyed VeggieTales since toddlerhood and still tossed himself onto the couch as I popped the Pistachio DVD into the player. My daughters, 5 and 7, find the seemingly three dimensional animation attention grabbing and the silly antics a treat. There's something crazy about brightly coloured talking and singing vegetables and that's what makes VeggieTales so irresistible. My daughters delight in the musical interludes interspersing the story. My husband and I are grateful for the moral lessons and a movie which encourages them to verbalize the lessons they've learned without prompting. We are not religious parents but we are a values based family and we appreciate the values portrayed in Pistachio and the traditional storytelling style.

Pistachio includes an intermission featuring a goofy new VeggieTale song: "Where Have All the Staplers Gone?" My husband and I also got a chuckle out of the pre-show, "Extreme Re-Do", a spoof of a popular home makeover show.

Veggietales Pistachio: The Little Boy That Wouldn't is an adorable family tale cleverly told and a pleasure to watch together! Your family can cuddle up to a copy of Veggietales Pistachio too! Win a copy here at Northern Mama.
