We all enjoy sitting down to watch a DVD but it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a DVD that everyone will happily watch together. R being eight deems most cartoons to be "too babyish", preferring things with a bit more action and fighting in. R is now seven, but he loves anything with animals in and adores cartoons as long as they are not too scary. A is only two ans although she does like watching television, she has a shorter concentration spell and often dips in and out of whatever her brothers are watching; as long as it isn't too violent.
We haven't watched Tom and Jerry for a while and I have to admit that I love Tom and Jerry. It is one of those classic cartoons that I loved as a child and it is easy to watch and fun, so the day after Halloween,we all sat down to watch the new Trick and Treats DVD.
"Tom and Jerry are in for spooks galore in this monster collection. With 20 eerie episodes plus two bonus episodes, your goodie-bag will be overflowing with fun! Tricks and treats are at every turn, from ancient Egypt to Transylvania, from creepy houses to haunted forests, the hair-raising hilarity is non-stop! Our favorite cat and mousemingle with ghosts, mummies, werewolves and witches in these terrific tales. Ofcourse Tom and Jerry have a bounty of tricks up their own sleeves as well! Fear not, the chase is on! It's a scare-iffic good time for the whole family!"
The DVD has been released with Halloween in mind of course, but I can honestly say that my three youngest children have not all sat and watched and enjoyed a DVD as much as this one for a while. They have watched it several times since and each time, they sit and hoot with laughter and the crazy antics of Tom and Jerry. The children all loved it and I don't think it will be leaving our DVD player any time soon.
Tom and Jerry: Tricks and Treats is available from Amazon and for less that six pounds, I think it is a great value buy.
We were sent a free copy of the DVD for the purpose of this review. All opinions are our own.
