VeggieTales Princess and the Popstar DVD Review

About the DVD:

Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous but lonely world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize that they look almost exactly alike—which leads to the crazy secret plan where they decide to switch lives! As each girl realizes that the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all of their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.

My review:

All three of my children love the VeggieTales® characters but my four year old daughter particularly enjoys episodes with a female lead character. This episode has all of the charm and humor that we value in the VeggieTales®. I appreciate the positive and spiritual message about embracing your individuality and my daughter was captivated by the story of Princess Poppyseed and Vanna Banana. We also enjoyed the original song, “You Never Are” which is beautifully sung by Dove Award winning Female Vocalist of the Year, Francesca Battistelli. I was not familiar with this vocalist before watching Princess and the Popstar but I will definitely be learning more about her because she has an amazing voice. My boys were thrilled with the addition to a new Silly Song called “Astonishing Wigs” which had them both laughing hysterically and singing the tune all afternoon. Princess and the Popstar is a VeggieTales® Dvd that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
