I don’t know about your little ones but my kids are very much hanging out for the school holidays. This 11-week long schoolterm has been quite exhausting so we’re all looking forward to plenty of resting and relaxing in the holidays. I’ve stocked up on crafts, tucked away some new K-nex and LEGO kits and of course we have a few feel-good movies lined up for rainy days too. Having been released only yesterday the kids can’t wait to pop some popcorn and enjoy Sing:

If your kids love singing and swinging, grooving and moving and giggling and wiggling they are guaranteed to love Sing, a fabulous family movie from the talented makers of Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets.

After a series of hilarious auditions five amazing contestants are selected to compete in a singing competition like no other: a loud-mouthed mouse, a timid elephant with an incurable case of stage fright, a pig mother to 25 little piglets, a getaway driver gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine. Will this spectacular musical event be the hit the struggling theatre needs to once again claim top spot?

Packed with catchy songs and featuring a star-studded cast this musical blockbuster was an absolute hit on the big screen and now you can share in the fun at home too.

‘Sing’ is now available on DVD (RRP $39.95) at all good retail stores across Australia.

Inside Out

Seeing we’re a family of big Disney fans I am a bit ashamed to say that we are yet to see much talked-about family movie Inside Out. We’ve had such a busy few months preparing for the new baby to arrive that we completely missed it at the cinema, to great disappointment of our oldest three Disney lovers. Luckily our chance to catch up is just around the corner with Disney Pixar ‘Inside Out hitting Australian shelves in just six short days:

Inside Out Blu-ray

I don’t know about you but I regularly say to my little ones: ‘I wonder what is going on inside that little head of yours?’ Well, Disney’s Inside Out is giving viewers the unique opportunity to take a peek inside the head of a little girl called Riley. Inside Riley’s mind, also known as the Headquarters, you’ll meet the emotions Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness who guide Riley on this tricky journey called life.

Normally it’s happy and optimistic Joy who is in charge, but when Riley’s family moves to a new city her emotions are struggling to keep up the good spirits. After a tumble with the core memories Joy and Sadness get lost in the maze of Riley’s head, leaving Riley with nothing but Fear, Anger and Disgust… To bring back the much needed balance in Riley’s life and put a smile back on her face, emotions Joy and Sadness have to find their way back to Headquarters travelling through mysterious areas like Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions.

If you are looking for a way to explain to your children the importance of emotions and help them identify their feelings you will absolutely love Inside Out.

Inside Out will be available on DVD (RRP $39.95), Blu-ray (RRP $39.95) and 3D Blu-ray (RRP $59.95) at major retailers across Australia from November 11.

Like many other mums I often count on feedback from other parents to work our what movies are worth seeing with, and appropriate for, our children. After reading through a Facebook feed full of praise for Big Hero 6 we decided to treat our big three to a fun afternoon at the local cinema to see this great Disney movie on the big screen:

Big Hero 6Taking home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2015 Big Hero 6, made by the talented team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, has proven to be an enormous hit. The futuristic comedy adventure tells the story of Hiro Hamada, a super talented 14-year old designer of microbots, and a huge inflatable robot called Baymax who develop a special friendship after the death of Hiro’s brother.

When the lovable duo discovers that someone has stolen Hiro’s microbots they set off to solve this evil mystery. Hiro and Baymax, together with interesting characters Go Go Tomago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred, form Big Hero 6. Who is controlling the microbots? Did Hiro’s brother die in vain? Will Big Hero 6 be able to turn bad into good after all?

While I think Big Hero 6 is possibly better suited to slightly older children our 6-year old twins did really enjoy Big Hero 6 and (to my surprise) managed to pick up quite a bit of the story line. Our 4-year old was definitely a bit too young to understand the events but she thought Baymax was very funny and she is keen to see the movie again, which means it’s thumbs up from all!

Big Hero 6 is available on DVD ($39.95) and Blu-ray ($49.95) at major retailers across Australia.
