UPDATE: Sorry for the delay! We're about to leave on a trip to see Will and CC's grandparents, and it's been so hectic. But congrats to Karin, who won the NCircle DVD giveaway! (Thanks to Random.org, which helped me decide.) Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your shipping address! Thanks to everyone who participated. :)
How exciting is this giveaway, from NCircle Entertainment? The media company just released six new DVDs, but we're giving away 10!
To give you the rundown on all six of the new releases, I wanted to start with CC's favorite, "Octonauts: Calling All Sharks!" (SRP: $12.99). CC is a huge animal fan. Doesn't matter if they're on land or under the sea, she wants to know all about them. As the Octonauts board the Octopod, they face a trio of Cookiecutter sharks, watch over an injured Lemon shark and stop a Whitetip shark that's chasing the Gup-A ship because, of course, it's shaped like a fish.
"Is the Cookiecutter shark a pretend shark?" I asked CC.
With narrowed eyes, she answered, "Why would they do something pretend?" (That was amazing. Just sayin'.)
CC also loved the other Octonauts DVD, "Meet the Octonauts" (SRP: $6.99). In that DVD, the brave Octonauts, including the cat Kwazii and Capt. Barnacles (love that name!), explore the world's oceans and rescue the creatures that live there, including the humuhumunukunukuapua'a -- yeah, you read that right. :)
In "Sid the Science Kid: Now That's Using Your Brain!" (SRP: $10.99), our smart guy Sid learns that the brain controls everything from walking to thinking and breathing. And just like the super-curious kid that he is, he wants to learn all about it.
"The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That: Let's Go on an Adventure" (SRP: $10.99) is the DVD for chocoholic children. In this one, the Cat in the Hat has eaten the last chocolate, and Nick and Sally must fly to Coco-a-licious to restock their supply. Wish I had that problem!
"WordWorld!" In its latest DVD, "Hide and Seek" (SRP: $6.99), the word friends have to hide behind WordThings that end in "ake," which is a great way to teach kids the different parts of words. Bug builds a Rake, and Pig builds a Cake. But Shark is so big that it's hard for him to hide at all.
The final new DVD, "The Wiggles: Hot Potatoes! The Best of the Wiggles" (SRP: $12.99), features the musical children's entertainment group and some of their most popular songs — "Big Red Car," "Toot Toot Chugga Chugga" and "The Monkey Song." Awesome!
