Little Spirit Christmas in New York DVDI love Christmas time and watching the holiday movies that come along with the season!  Thanks to Genius Products and Curious Pictures, I had the opportunity to review a new DVD called “Little Spirit: Christmas in New York,” which was released on October 13th, 2009 and retails for $16.95.  It was a cute movie that was heartfelt and really brought out the Christmas spirit while watching it!  My boys loved it!

In the movie, “Little Spirit: Christmas In New York,” a young boy goes on a holiday journey of a lifetime in the city that never sleeps.  Moving to a new house in a new city can be scary and difficult, but when Leo’s best friend (and dog) Romona gets lost in Central Park, Leo is determined to find her in time for Christmas.  Leo feels lost and alone, but a magical spirit takes him on an incredible adventure and Leo soon learns that this new city isn’t as scary as he thought it was.  He also learns that the true meaning of Christmas can be found in the people he meets along the way!  “Little Spirit: Christmas in New York” features the voices of Danny DeVito (Deck the Halls), Lucy Liu (Kung Fu Panda), Brenda Song (“The Suite Life of Zach & Cody”) “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams and Freddy Rodriguez (“Ugly Betty”) – as well as music by country music sensations Faith Hill and Duncan Sheik.  Be sure to check out this family loved holiday title!

  106. Denise B. says:

    We used to love going into the city to see the tree and the windows at “Saks Fifth Avenue”. Unfortunately, they had a major surge in tourists coming into the city to the point of it being impossible to get around let alone get near the tree or windows. The wheel on the stroller even broke off while trying to escape the mob we were in. last year was the first year we didn’t go.
