Santa BuddiesI love the holidays and I love puppies!  I found the perfect combination of the 2 in Walt Disney Home Entertainment’s newest Blu-ray/DVD Combo Release – “Santa Buddies.”  This is an absolutely adorable movie and made me want a puppy of my own.  Man, those dogs were so cute and looked so cuddly.  I have to admit that I loved the wood floors in the movie (I think my husband is rubbing off on me – noticing the furniture and things like that – lol).  My boys also loved the movie.  There were several times during the movie where they would burst out into laughter.   If you haven’t seen it yet, I definitely encourage you to check it out for the holidays, if not purchase it for your personal collection!  We also enjoyed watching the Special Features, including a Sing-Along to Christmas Carols with the Buddies and “Santa Claus is Coming To Town” Music Video.  My boys love music, so they really loved both of these Special Features!c

Santa Buddies (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) [Blu-ray]” was released on Tuesday, November 24th by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.  I love Disney’s concept of their new Blu-ray Combo Packs, which include a Blu-ray disc, DVD, and Digital Copy.  This would be perfect for a stocking stuffer or even a gift from Santa!  In “Santa Buddies,” join B-Dawg, Budderball, Buddha, Mudbud, and Rosebud, as they embark on an exciting journey to the magical world of Santa’s Workshop.  When Puppy Paws, the fun-loving son of Santa Paws, gets tired of the North Pole, he checks out Santa’s “naughty” list and finds Budderball’s name right on top.  Puppy Paws then heads south to meet the Buddies and find out how “ordinary” pups spend their days.  However, when the worlds begins to forget the true meaning of the holidays and the magic of the season begins to literally melt away, it’s up to Puppy Paws and his newfound Buddies to save the day!

Santa Buddies plush toySANTA BUDDIES: THE LEGEND OF SANTA PAWS stars the voices of Tim Conway (The Carol Burnett Show), Richard Kind (A Bug’s Life, Spin City), Tom Bosley (Happy Days), Field Cate (Pushing Daises), Josh Flitter (Nancy Drew), and Skyler Gisondo (The Bill Engvall Show) and the acting talents of George Wendt (Cheers) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future). Robert Vince returns to produce and direct his fourth “Buddies” film.

    Our kids (Boy age 4 and girl age 2) adore these movies. I was so thrilled to find the plush Buddies at the Disney Store this week. They were 2 for $25 and they had all five of them from the movie in Santa hats. I got them each their favorite and picked up Rose Bud for our daughter and Budderball for our son. Thought they would be the perfect snuggly thing you need to find in your stocking on Christmas.
    Would love to win the movie to go with the Buddies. (1)
