Right when I feared that the madness of these crazy, loud, messy school holidays with six kids would get to me I was rescued, just in time. Yesterday sanity arrived in the shape of a bunch of adventurous garden dwarfs called Gnomeo and Juliet and our 7-year old Juliet was super excited to see ‘herself’ on the big screen once again:

In Sherlock Gnomes we catch up with loveable garden gnomes Gnomeo and Juliet (who we met in their first movie adventure). The adorable blue and red hatted gnomes are about to move into their own piece of London ‘paradise’ but first the place will need a good tidy up, and we all know renovations cause friction in the best of relationships…

In an attempt to bring back the love Gnomeo tries to surprise Juliet with a special flower. Unfortunately things don’t exactly go to plan and to top it off they return to find all of their gnome friends have disappeared. Time for dwarf detective Sherlock Gnomes, accompanied by his side kick Watson, to start an investigation. Will they be able to return the gnomes and restore peace in the garden (and in the marriage)?

Sherlock Gnomes is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD at all good retail stores across Australia.

When you have a big family like ours there is sometimes no other choice but to split everyone up and do things separately. Sometimes you win and you get to go the movies with the older kids, other times you lose and you have to do the grocery shopping with the little ones but that’s OK. Recently hip Daddy was the lucky one to take the kids to see Peter Rabbit on the big screen and they had the best time, while my afternoon was a lot less fun. Don’t worry, I am catching up this week with Peter Rabbit being released on DVD:

Whether you have been a long time Beatrix Potter fan or have only just discovered this cheeky rabbit, Peter Rabbit has hopped straight into the hearts of people of all ages with this gorgeous new feature adaption of a Beatrix Potter’s classic:

There is nothing shy about Peter Rabbit! The bold, brave and boisterous (or should I say mischievous) bunny is the leader of the pack and tends to get his bunny buddies into a lot of trouble. Just when he thought his long-lasting feud with Mr. McGregor had finally come to an end and they would have free reign of the bountiful veggie garden new owner Thomas moves into the property and it looks like the bunnies will be banned for good.

Thankfully there is the warm and welcoming neighbour, a kind artist called Bea, who has a real soft spot for the adorable rabbits and she is determined to protect their home. With a big sprinkle of humor, a dash of romance and lots of animal antics Peter Rabbit is sure to please the whole family.

Peter Rabbit is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD at all good retail stores across Australia.

While it is many years ago I still remember the excitement of unpacking our first game console. Discovering the different characters in each game, mastering special skills, exploring secret worlds, discovering valuable treasures and fighting bad guys, it was so much fun! But what if you found yourself on the other side of the screen and became the avatar in your own game? Get ready for a brand new Jumanji adventure:

A boring shift of detention is about to become a whole lot more exciting when four students find an old video console in the basement. As they plug in to play Jumanji they find out that this is a game like no other: You don’t just play Jumanji, Jumanji plays you…

Transported to the jungle of Jumanji the students are shocked to discover that they have been turned into the avatars of the game. Jumanji is no longer just an innocent computer game, for these four players it becomes a dangerous adventure, a fight for survival and a journey that teaches them a lot about themselves and each other. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’; will they make it out alive or will it be game over?

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD at all good retail stores across Australia.

To take a closer look at Jumanji or other exciting new releases and to order your favourite titles online visit www.theviewinglounge.com.au.

As a large family of eight going to the movies is not something we often do. To warrant a big expense like a trip to the cinema a movie would have to be REALLY good, so if I tell you that I took the oldest four to see our favourite little bear on the big screen you can be sure this movie is an absolute winner. We first fell in love with Paddington when reading the books, totally adored him in the first Paddington movie and we couldn’t wait to see what he got up to in Paddington 2:

After making the movie across the oceans to London and finding a new home with the Brown family, Paddington has well and truly settled into his new life. He still misses his Aunty Lucy and with her 100th birthday coming up Paddington sets off on a mission to find her the perfect gift.

He finds it in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop: A unique and very rare pop-up book that celebrates London’s most special spots. Unfortunately it is pricey so he decides to join the workforce and hopefully earn enough money to buy the book in time for the big event. Just as he is about to earn the final pounds the gift of his dreams is stolen, buy by who and why? The adventurous bear is not about to let go of the book that easily and is determined to get the books safely back in his hairy little paws.

There is no doubt about it, after watching Paddington 2 you will be licking your lips at the thought of a delicious slice of toast smothered in marmalade. Especially for hungry bears of all ages celebrity chef and dessert queen Anna Polyviou has created this scrumptious recipe for Paddington’s Pineapple Marmalade for you to try at home. Enjoy!

With the Easter long weekend just around the corner why not print off some of these beary cute Paddington colouring-in pages for your little artists? You can find Paddington Colouring-In Page 1 or Paddington Colouring-In Page 2 here, grab your markers, crayons and pencils and get creative.

Paddington 2 is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD at all good retail stores across Australia.
