In March, Alex, Alexander, Ellie, and I spent one Friday afternoon in a movie theater filled with other parents and kids, eating popcorn and sipping sodas. Our reason for being there….to see Dr. Suess’ The Lorax on the big screen.
This movie was a hit with the 3 of us that day in the theater and now we are able to share it with the rest of the family! After our recent move into our new home, we curled up as a family and spent the evening watching The Lorax on Blu-ray.
Everyone loved it.
Ellie was in an trance watching it this time around. (She was just over 3 months the first time so she slept through most of it). All of the bright colors captivated her and she couldn’t take her eyes off the tv.
Not only did we love this movie, it really taught our little Alexander all about the environment and recycling!
The DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack also includes three brand new mini-movies including:
Serenade – Two Bar-ba-loots — one love shy and the other suave and confident — battle for the heart of their would-be sweetheart with the help of a colorful cast of characters, including the Humming-Fish and Swomme-Swans.
Wagon-Ho – Two Bar-ba-loots take The Once-ler’s wagon on a ride they won’t soon forget.
Forces of Nature – Determined to scare The Once-ler out of Truffula Valley, The Lorax decides to create the illusion of ominous forces of nature.
