Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas DVD Review



I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review this new DVD. Curious George is a character I grew up with and it feels extra special to share a new feature movie with my daughter. He is still curious as ever and getting into all sorts of unintentional trouble, which is something children can relate to. My daughter loves animals, especially monkeys, so this movie was a big hit. I had some of the music stuck in my head (in a good way) and I am all about music good enough to be made into a soundtrack. “Are you ready, for Christmas time to come…” which reminds me, I need to get all my holiday CDs and MP3s out!


This is a heartwarming movie filled with Christmas spirit and cheer that the whole family can enjoy watching together. I picture the Christmas tree up, hot chocolate in hand and everyone snuggled up in PJs and warm blankets while watching this on a chilly Saturday afternoon or evening. My daughter and I have already watched it about a dozen times and will have to include Daddy one night after Thanksgiving when the tree is up. 


I also love the animation in Curious George as it is not overstimulating like many of the newer cartoons. There aren’t dozens of different colors flashing and changing by the second, which would get anyone wound up. The backgrounds tend to stay still and the characters remain animated, more similar to an scene in every day life. Enter for your chance to win the DVD below, or grab the CD or DVD at the store, I highly recommend it.
