CHRISTMAS WISH” will be available on DVD October 4, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 45 minutes and its SRP is $6.99. Additional information about the stories included within this DVD is below.

 “A Christmas Wish (extended adventure)
It’s a stormy Christmas Eve and Kate worries that Dad won’t get home in time to put the star on the Christmas tree. In Mimiloo, Kate tells her friends all about Christmas, and everyone is excited to send a wish to Santa Claus. But when Tack’s letter launcher malfunctions, it looks like Christmas will be ruined!

Snow Bowling
Kate wants to build a snow fort, but there isn’t enough snow in the yard. In Mimiloo, Kate and her friends go snow bowling in the Winter Waterfalls. They use snowballs as bowling balls and snowmen for the pins. But when the gang slides down into an ice cave, Kate will have to think creatively to help them escape.

Chilly the Snowman
Kate’s sad because her snowman is melting! In Mimiloo, it is a sweltering hot day so Kate, Mim-Mim, and their friends head to the Winter Waterfalls to cool down – only to find that all the ice is melting! To re-freeze the waterfalls, Kate will have to find Chilly the snowman who keeps the Winter Waterfalls cold, snowy, and frozen.

Inspired by a real life little girl, “Kate & Mim-Mim” follows the fantastical adventures of five-year-old Kate, who, together with her toy rabbit Mim-Mim, travels to the fantasy world of Mimiloo where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate. In each story, Kate and Mim-Mim and their group of loveable friends discover exciting new places and set off on adventures, all in the hope of solving a puzzling problem Kate has encountered in the real world.

Exploring themes of friendship, adventure, and problem solving, “Kate & Mim-Mim” encourages children to use their imaginations and work together, believing no problem is ever too big to solve!

This DVD set takes us on to a winter wonderland. It includes three adventures, plus one bonus music video. They include the following:

 My preschoolers simply adore this television show. The characters are cheerful and fun, and each story teaches a valuable lesson. 

To go along with the DVD, you can also grab the companion picture book, Christmas with Kate & Mim-Mim. This cute story has Mim-Mim taking over for Santa. The holiday theme to this DVD & book makes them a great stocking stuffer for the upcoming holiday season.
