“Pistachio” DVD Review & Giveaway
My boys love to watch the VeggieTales shows…and I have to admit I find them just as entertaining as my kids do! On March 2nd, 2010, Big Idea, Inc. released an all-new family adventure called “VeggieTales: Pistachio“ on DVD. “VeggieTales: Pistachio – The Little Boy That Woodn’t” is based on the story of Pinocchio and includes a brand new silly song, “Where Have All The Staplers Gone,” as well as other family friendly bonus features. The DVD retails for $14.99 and is available online and in Christian and general market stores.
Once upon a time in the small town of Bologna-Salami, there lived a lonely toymaker named Gelato and his assistant Cricket. Gelato had no children of his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine Gelato’s surprise when he learned this little boy could walk…and talk…and definitely had a mind of his own! When Pistachio tries to do things his way, he lands in a “whale” of a situation! Will he decide to listen to the wisdom of a loving father in time to save his whole family from becoming fish food? Find out in this all-new adventure with a lesson about the importance of family and learning to listen.

I really liked this DVD, as I do with most of the VeggieTales movies. It was neat to see how it paralleled the story of “Pinocchio” with it’s own twists to make it unique. My boys enjoyed watching “Pistachio” as well. I look forward to the next movie VeggieTales comes up with! Thank you Big Idea!
