Bands on the Run- The Rubber Band Movie DVD Review

My kids love the silicone bracelets that they trade with their friends so they were excited to watch Bands on the Run-The Rubber Band Movie on DVD. This fun, silly movie takes children on an adventure as five rubber bands” fall off a truck and join together to make their way to the toy store and onto the wrists of three happy children.” My kids responded well to cute characters including Roxie, the rock star, Daisy, the flower, Edison, the light bulb, Ray, the T.V. and Amelia, the airplane. It was comical and my kids were belly laughing out loud with the slapstick humor while I giggled a bit in the background. They moved and grooved to the fun songs and report that they give the movie “a big bands thumbs up.” I would recommend this DVD for young children in the 3-6 age range.

Bands on the Run has a run time of around 40 minutes and even cleverly includes 10 free character bands which my children refused to trade. While this movie has not gotten the best reviews on the web, my little ones certainly didn’t seem to mind and enjoyed watching it.

Purchase Bands on the Run: The Rubber Band Movie on Amazon.
