My boys are early risers.
I, am not.
When I just can’t keep my eyes open at 5:30 am, I resign myself to turning a movie on for the kids.
I really want the shows we pick to be either educational, or a support to our family values.
I’m so thankful to have found a show that the kids adore and that promotes godly virtues.
I remember when VeggieTales first came out. I was in middle school. Even though the show is meant for a younger kids, I thought it was hilarious! The characters, talking vegetables, learn moral lessons in every episode all the while cracking up their audience, no matter their age.
Each show features an ethical dilemma common to kids, from sharing, to telling the truth. The VeggiesTales characters then act out a story that helps children work through a godly response to the hard things in life. The storytelling is imaginative and FULL of music. My boys sing the songs constantly. They’re quite catchy.
Now the good old characters of Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Junior Asparagus and gang are jumping off the screen, and quite literally, into kids arms. The folks at VeggieTales have partnered with Walmart to provide adorable plush toys representing the stars of the show.
My two year old, Lumpy, was a bit in awe that he could actually HOLD Bob the Tomato! Here they are getting acquainted.
Lumpy loves to talk to Bob. I even hear him reenacting the stories and lessons he’s learned from the movies.
These toys would be a great way to get siblings to role play and work through any relational problem they have. My boys know the VeggieTales stories backward and forward and will pretend to be the characters as they discuss their feelings and try to find a solution to their brotherly bickering.
So head on over to Walmart to pick up an adorable plush VeggieTales toy if you wanna see smiles like these…
