Veggies Tales: Pistachio - The Little Boy That Woodn't DVD Review
About The DVD:
Once upon a time in the small Italian town of Bologna-Salami, there lived a lonely toymaker named Gelato and his assistant Cricket. Gelato had no children he could call his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine Gelato’s surprise when he learned that this little toy boy could walk… and talk… and definitely had a mind of his own!
Like the little lost sheep who strays from the fold, Pistachio decides to try things his way and lands in a “whale” of a situation! Will Pistachio learn that obeying the wisdom of a loving father will help him find what he really needs and could be the key to saving his whole family from becoming fish food? Find out in this all new VeggieTales adventure with a lesson about the importance of family and listening to your parents.
Here is a trailer of the movie:

This DVD was so cute! If you have had the pleasure of viewing Veggie Tales movies in the past you know that each has a wonderful character trait and/or Bible story that is taught to children in fun and exciting ways. Pistachio: The Little Boy That Woodn't is obviously a spin on the Classic Disney movie, Pinocchio, and also tells the Bible Story of The Lost Ship. The songs are fun and catchy, and at only 50 minutes in length this DVD kept the attention of my three year old. She is just at the stage where she is starting to understand the importance of obeying her parents, so this DVD was very timely. Her little sister, at only 20 months, does not have the attention span to sit that long, but she danced to the music and recognized Bob and Larry by calling their names! When it was over, she even asked for "more Bob" For more activities that are related to this DVD, check out this resource, courtesy of Big Idea. Veggie tales are obviously designed and marketed for children, but adults can totally enjoy these loveable vegetables too! I know I do!
I highly recommend this DVD and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can pick up Veggie Tales: Pistachio - The Little Boy That Woodn't at any retailer that carries Veggie Tales, particularly your local Christian bookseller.
