Barney: A Very Merry Christmas - The Movie DVD {Review & Giveaway}

Barney logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, washoekathy!}

What better gift to give a child this holiday season than friendship?

And who better to do just that than a big, purple dinosaur that takes kids on a super-dee-duper journey in each and every television, online and live event that he's a part of? What is there for kids not to love?

After having had children, I've come to understand why this friendly dinosaur is not only an Emmy winner but is one of the top-rated preschool shows today. The way that he displays sharing, caring, imagination, and learning is something that I'm okay with my girls watching and I always hope that they take away the positive lessons of the show.

So when Barney: A Very Merry Christmas - The Movie arrived, I hoped that it would continue to be helpful in the encouragement and teachings that Barney has provided so far and bring the joy of the holiday season to our home.

Barney: A Very Merry Christmas - The MovieAvailable now on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand, Barney: A Very Merry Christmas - The Movie brings viewers along with Barney and Baby Bop on their journey to Santa's Workshop to learn that the true spirit of Christmas is the joy of giving and caring for others.

Barney Christmas DVDThis very merry celebration follows along as Barney travels to the North Pole to discover the wonders of Santa's Workshop, as he decorates the Christmas caboose, and then teaches Baby Bop that the magic of Christmas is about giving, not receiving. Barney has the ability to make kids' Christmas wishes come true with dino-sized friendship and fun in this festive holiday movie!

Barney: A Very Merry Christmas DVD reviewContaining a Barney's Christmas Carols bonus feature, this DVD has a feature running time of 58 minutes (71 minutes with the bonus) and is aimed at ages 1 - 5. Keep an eye out for this holiday movie in stores and online now with a retail price of $14.98 ($11.99 on Amazon) and add Barney: A Very Merry Christmas - The Movie to your young fan's stocking this December!

Thanks to the generosity of Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, one person will be able to do just that, because...

One lucky person will win a DVD copy of Barney: A Very Merry
Christmas - The Movie!

My favourite part of the Holiday season is the extra time spent with family and friends. Everyone seems to be in the mood for visiting and we have a lot of company. It is a lot of fun and I especially look forward to the incredible food that we all prepare.

Thanks for the great giveaway. My Nieces would love this DVD. ~Pauline
