My daughter is a big fan of movies she loves getting new movies and having movie nights.  I recently found some great holiday/winter titles from PBSKids and Skiprope.  These titles make great holiday gifts.  You can throw them in a stocking or wrap them up to put under the tree.  I like to use them for gifts from our Elf on the Shelf make sure to check out our page with her adventures to get some fun ideas here. Check out these great titles:


“Roald Dahl’s The BFG” This DVD includes the digitally restored version of this classic animated film along with two special features – a Never-before-seen Roald Dahl Documentary and Before/After Restoration Video. The documentary features an interview with Roald Dahl in which he talks about several of the well-known books he has written including “The BFG,” “The Witches,” and “Matilda.”  If you’re not familiar with “The BFG” book or this film, Sophie, an orphan, is snatched from her bed by an awesome giant who whisks her away on a magical, thrilling, and funny adventure. Unlike scary giants such as the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, and the Bonecruncher, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a good giant who blows sweet dreams into the bedroom windows of children as they slumber. When Sophie learns that a monstrous crew of meanies is off to England to gobble up innocent boys and girls, she sets out to stop them once and for all, with the help of her new, rather large friend.  Approximate run time 90 minutes.
