Balloonatiks: DVD Review & Giveaway

As part of my involvement with The Product Review Place, I was recently given the opportunity to review a great children's DVD, The Balloonatiks.




The Balloonatik's are a group of five superheros made of balloons, that can be modified into different sizes and shapes. The characters include:
  • Flator - the school jock, is able to grow to massive sizes
  • Airbrain - the smartest kid in school, can use his giant head as a hot air balloon
  • Squeeker - the popular cheerleader, uses her high-pitched cheers to paralyze bad guys
  • Sparky - the multi-talented activist, can stop opponents with in their tracks with lightening bolts
  • Bouncer - class clown and food lover, can transform into any kind of ball and bounce to amazing heights
Additional cast include Leaky, a frog-turned-balloon mascot; Professor Swellhead, mentor and creator of the Balloonatiks; and Dr.Poppemoff, the evil mad-scientist out to take over Hot Air City. 


For those of us who grew up in the 1980's, you will be excited to know that the opening theme music is performed by none other than Ray Parker Jr., who wrote the theme song for the movie, Ghostbusters! 

The DVD runs about 23 minutes and is brightly colored and full of action. Having only girls at home, I did not know how they would like, being very girly-girls. To my surprise, they really did enjoy it. I feel that the running time is a perfect length for children ages 3-7 years. Even my two year old enjoyed it!

The Balloonatiks website is full of fun games, science activities and fun facts for kids to discover, as well as online shopping. 


Admittedly, I had not heard of The Balloonatiks prior to watching this DVD for the review, but my children and I did enjoy it, and I recommend this DVD for any families with children. It was fun and exciting, with a little character education thrown in for good measure!
