Curious George Swings Into Spring DVD {Review & Giveaway}

Curious George logo
With spring finally on the horizon, families across the country are gearing up for warm weather and fun vacations. Whether the most anticipated part about the season is seeing the flowers bloom, pulling out your flip-flops, or packing up the car for a cross-country drive, spring manages to put the majority of people in a good mood.

And, for Curious George fans out there, there is one more reason to be excited about spring... the fact that Curious George Swings into Spring is available tomorrow, March 12, 2013, on DVD and Digital Download! What better way to bring some extra joy and laughter to the month than to spend it with everyone's favorite mischievous monkey?


Based on the best-selling Curious George books by Margret and H.A. Rey, Curious George's television series and movies expand George's world to include a host of colorful characters and original locales. At the same time, the shows work to maintain the charm of the beloved books while also inspiring kids to explore science, math, and engineering in the world around them in a fun and entertaining way.

By encouraging inquiry and curiosity, promoting hands-on exploration, and showing parents and caregivers how to support children's science and math-related play, it's hard to not be smitten with Curious George. Even as he gets into one scrape after another, he is still promoting important lessons... while capturing your heart with his inquisitive curiosity.

Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat

Now that spring has sprung, the world's favorite monkey returns — as curious as ever — in his high-flying, full-length feature, Curious George Swings into Spring.

In this cute tale, George is excited about the arrival of spring and wants his best friend, Hundley, to feel the same. The two explore all the wonders of the season together, including blooming flowers, baby animals and canoe rides, but nothing works to make Hundley love spring.

Curious George and Hundley

Things go from bad to worse when Hundley gets lost in the country, causing George to take to the skies (accidentally) in a hot air balloon to sail over the countryside to look for him. Luckily, George and Hundley return safely and are rescued from the balloon by The Man with the Yellow Hat, the Doorman and Lydia.

However, not only are George and Hundley saved, but they manage to win the coveted Spring Building Prize... which, finally, results in Hundley sharing in George's Spring Fever!

Curious George spring movie

Throughout the 57-minute running time of this new movie, Curious George yet again uses his insatiable curiosity as a way of acquainting viewers with key concepts in math, science, and engineering. As with his previous episodes and feature films, George's memorable (mis)adventures offer a perfect vehicle for motivating kids to expand their own investigations of the world.

I love the way that Curious George is completely appropriate for children, always has a positive moral and has the real-life educational aspects that kids can apply and think about each time they watch. My kids have always been big fans of Curious George and being able to celebrate spring with him is no exception!

Available tomorrow with a retail price of $14.99, Curious George Swings into Spring is sure to be a hit for young fans (and us grown-ups, too) everywhere.

And, thanks to the generosity of Universal Studios Home Entertainment, one person will be able to bring home the crazy hijinks of this cute little monkey this season as well, because...

One lucky person will win a copy of
Curious George Swings into Spring on DVD!



A big thank you to Universal Studios for providing a Curious George DVD for me as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.

Kayla said...

My daughter loves to play outside, and here in Louisiana we may or not have a winter (depending on the year) but spring is the only time that is pleasant to play outside. Summer is dangerously hot and she doesn't get to play outdoors all that much. We have a new park close to our home so hopefully we will get to go play there before summer hits.
