Winnie the Pooh DVD Release 10/25

Growing up I watched Winnie the Pooh all of the time, but my girls didn't really know who he was. I meant to take them to the theater to see the movie, but for some reason never got around to it. We received a review copy in the mail a week or so ago, and sat down to watch it for family night.

Synopsis - In this Walt Disney Studios movie, Eeyore lost his tail and all of the residents of Hundred Acre Wood try to help him find a new one. In the process, Christopher Robin disappears and Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary monster - The Backson.

Since we watched the movie, my girls have been walking around the house singing, the Backson, the Backson, Who's Afraid of the Backson." My 5 year old even painted a picture of the Backson on her Pumpkin. The movie isn't just for kids though. My husband and I found ourselves laughing just as much as both of our girls. I thought the movie was really funny, and it reminded me of the old Winnie the Pooh books and shows.
