The Snowman and the Snowdog (#giveaway)

2013 Holiday Gift Guide button

We’re weeks past Halloween and Rowan is still obsessed with her Wiggly Halloween DVD. When something gets her to sing and dance, how can I say no? At the same time, we have a new holiday to look forward to and I’m not really interested in singing Halloween songs anymore. NCircle Entertainment came to my rescue and sent us a “The Wiggles: Taking Off!” featuring the new Wiggles that Rowan loves. Now at least I can have a bit of variety and we can learn some new songs together. I was very surprised to realize that there is a little interview with a young ballerina named Mimi who is from Gatineau, which is not very far from Ottawa, so we have a Canadian connection to the Wiggles!

On a more seasonal note, we were also sent a brand-new sequel to the classic movie The Snowman, called The Snowman and the Snowdog.

NCircle The Snowman and the Snowdog

When a young boy and his mother move to a new home, the boy discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards of his bedroom. In the box, he finds a hat, scarf, some lumps of coal and a shriveled tangerine – it’s a snowman-making kit! Later that day it starts to snow. The boy builds a snowman, and with a little spare snow left over, a Snowdog. That night they come to life and take him on a wonderful adventure. As dawn breaks they fly home, but before the boy returns to bed a magical surprise awaits him…

As a head’s up, this is an entirely dialogue-free movie. The first time that we watched it, I basically narrated the whole thing to keep the girls interested and by the end they were completely involved and discussing what was happening. I will also warn that there is not a traditional happy ending to this movie but it didn’t dampen their enthusiasm to watch The Snowman and the Snowdog

The Snowman and the Snowdog sells for a suggested retail price of $9.99 and is available at a Barnes and Noble retailer near you (or NCircle Entertainment online).


One lucky reader will win The Snowman and the Snowdog from NCircle Entertainment!
