My Thoughts

My children simply love Shaun the Sheep and this adorable DVD was one of their favorites so far. This DVD includes seven different stories, all with a winter or holiday theme. There's snowball fights,  battles for a spot in front of the fire, and lots of winter fun. The episodes include:

We Wish Ewe a Merry Christmas
Snowed In
Fireside Favorite
An Ill Wind
Bitzer's New Hat
Chip Off the Old Block
Shirley Whirley

Shaun the Sheep' and all his escapades were definitely a big hit in my household. The characters are fun and colorful, and Shaun never loses any of his silent charm. This is a great family show that's perfect to watch on family movie night. It always amazes me how entertaining a character who can't speak can be. The whole DVD runs about  45 minutes, and it is definitely some of Shaun's best, and most festive workAnyone who is a fan of the show will want this DVD in their collection.
