"Actually, my husband and I started watching (and buying) Veggietales videos BEFORE we ever had children! We love the humor and the creativity of the writers and animators. I must say the quality of the graphics has improved over time!I honestly thought that the Veggies would be "too old" for my two-year old, but gave it a try anyway. I was very wrong!! Currently, we watch nothing but Veggietales and Blue's Clues! I am happy to see my young daughter watching videos that help to provide her with great moral values based on Biblical Principles! We actually own each of these videos separately. I plan to replace my current videos with the newer DVD format... so that I may have even MORE room for these great buys! My only complaint is that they do not have all 3 videos in their entirety! (Fifteen minutes of the video "Are you my neighbor?" is missing.)"
Great intro to the series....

"This is was first look at Veggie Tales. My almost 2-year-old son only wants to watch this DVD. It moves quickly and there is a lot of singing and dancing. We loved it so much we rented "Esther" and were so disappointed. Esther moved so slow and was not at all upbeat. We aren't sure what our second purchase will be because we loved "Hero's" but hated the next one. If you've had a bad experience or are looking for your first helping of the Veggies GET THIS ONE!"
Cute And Compelling

""VeggieTales-Heroes of the Bible-Stand Up, Stand Tall, Stand Strong!" is a wonderful DVD packed with three great stories from our favorite vegetable friends. Though I was always familiar with VeggieTales, I never saw any point in watching their shows since I was an adult. However, since introducing my daughter to the little guys, I've grown to love them myself.
In this particular DVD, we are taught the lessons of the Good Samaritan in "The Story of Flibber-O-Loo." In it, we learn to love our neighbor no matter who they are or what they do. In "Rack, Shack, and Benny," we are shown the brave tale of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Conveniently called Rack, Shack, and Benny to make the story a little easier for children to swallow, we are shown how to stand strong for our beliefs no matter what the consequences may be. In "Josh and the Big Wall," we learn of Joshua and the people of Israel's solid faith in God even though what God tells them to do seems a little bit out of the ordinary. It lets kids know that even though they may be laughed at for their faith, God will be there to help them out of any situation.
Three cute stories divided by interviews with children who give their description of each story and a few tongue-twisting names (such as Nebuchadnezzar) are what you get on this DVD. It teaches great life lessons with a Christian foundation. Get it for your children today."
