"My 5, soon to be 6, year old daughter loves all the Holly Hobbie DVDs but this one is her hands down favorite. She adores the song where the Hey Girls try to chase away summer boredom by pretending they are French Fashion Models. These dvds do tend to have kind of fun, catchy songs and this one is no exception. I like the Holly Hobbie dvds because they are basically wholesome without being too sappy. They teach good values like helping others, respecting elderly people, and dealing appropriately with conflict, be it between siblings or friends. They may have a couple tense moments but really couldn't be called scary. They are a good way to balance out they abundance of fairy tale princess stuff that overwhelms the girly dvd market with something a little closer to real life. We love princesses, too, don't get me wrong, but it's nice to have something that doesn't involve any magic spells or generically handsome princes for a change."
Holly Hobbie Helps a New Friend

"Holly Hobbie finds herself back with her friends in her newest adventure, "Best Friends Forever." But as things start out, the girls are a bit bored. It's been a bit of a lazy, unexciting summer and they feel they have nothing to do. But then, Holly's Aunt Jessie urges them to look at the world with new eyes. She says she's never been bored in her life because the world is too exciting to be bored.
Holly ends up meeting a lady named Annabelle Crow, one who has a very special surprise for her. But when Annabelle gets some bad news, Holly must work together to unite the community in helping her friend.
One thing I continue to love about this new "Holly Hobbie" series is the blend of the old and the new. Holly and her friends live in the modern world, but there's something pleasantly nostalgic about the world they live in. And Holly values and finds meaning in history.
One of my favorite moments in the film comes when Kyle and Robby get into some trouble with old-man Willie Scranton. He orders them to report to his house early in the morning for some work and they don't even *dare* think about arguing. You don't see too much of that these days. And in the end, they find some common ground.
Another great thing about the "Best Friends Forever" DVD is that the amount of bonus content has increased. They've included a quiz about the events of the movie. And though many of the questions are extremely easy, there are some stumpers in there as well, and I'm not ashamed to say I missed a couple. There's also a game where you can dress up Holly. And finally, there's a sing-along for all three songs from the film, which the option to play the songs with or without vocals. Finally, there are previews for other DVD releases, among them "Shedderman Rules," "Open Season" and "It's a Big Big World."
Overall, another nice "Holly Hobbie" DVD release! I look forward to seeing more soon."
