Happy New Year, Pooh and Friends!

"Actually, more like New Year's and Christmas, as that's what this DVD features.
The story begins with an opening segment in which Pooh Bear hides a present he has for Piglet. Then our friends gather together and tell little Roo about a past Christmas. This segment comes from the special "Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too," featuring the characters from "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh." Pooh and his friends are getting ready for Christmas. They decide to make a Christmas list and come up with all sorts of gifts that they want to give each other. But when the list is lost to the wind, Pooh and Piglet decide to dress up as Santa and a reindeer and make gifts.
Later, they recall a New Year's in which Rabbit wanted to move away because he was irritated Pooh's eating honey, Tigger's bouncing, Piglet's being afraid and Eeyore's gloominess. So they all made resolutions to change and swapped personalities.
One reason this production is neat is that it has Gopher in it --- he really isn't seen too much lately.
This movie features songs by Carly Simon (who also did the songs for the more recent "Piglet's Big Movie" and "Heffalump Movie") as well as by the characters. She does a great job, as always. The best is "Auld Lang Syne" (with Pooh-specific lyrics mixed in.) This is great, because you don't usually get to hear lyrics for this song these days, only the tune.
DVD special features include a "Covered in Snow" game, a "New Year's Eve" countdown and song selection with on-screen lyrics. These features aren't anything overly exciting, but they are fairly nice. The "Covered in Snow" game is a bit flawed in that you're supposed to choose objects, but it lets you choose the same ones over and over and doesn't progress the game any. Otherwise, good game. You can also put the DVD in your DVD-ROM drive (if you have one) to register it."
My 18 month old cannot get enough of this movie!

"I brought this movie out for this christmas since my daughtor this year is 18 months I knew she would like this movie. I love christmas so every October call me crazy but I bring out the christmas dvd's and music. I figure heck I start my christmas shopping in august gives me the spirit with out all that last minute stress. So I put this on for my 18 month old and immediately it became her favorite movie she makes us play it over and over again sometimes even when she wakes up in middle of the night she just wants us to play it cause we have a dvd in the bedroom on laptop that has happened twice. Her daddy though is quit sick of this movie now and it is not christmas he says it goes away the day after christmas. The two of us can recite the whole story now lol! It is a must have though for your little ones and you will enjoy it to the first few times once a year lol..She loves to dance to the cute songs they sing. Put ti this way I have never been a pooh fan ever and even told my mom that my kids will never have any winnie the pooh things. Cause all my friends kids had everything pooh bear it made me sick and I was the last to have my daughtor and all her stuff was preciose moments.This movie made even me a fan of the pooh clan. Buy this dvd you will not regret it is a wonderful holiday movie to enjoy with your kids!"
A very merry pooh year all year round.

"This is an excellent christmas time story for all lovers of winnie pooh and friends, young and old alike! Its a story that can, and probably will be, watched again and again. There are two interactive games for younger children which should keep them occupied for an hour or two. My children aren't "fans" of winne pooh but have watched this over and over. good value for money!!"
Good Holiday movie

"A good Holiday movie with all the usual cast. I watched this movie this morning with my nephew to introduce him to the Holiday *this is his first* and I enjoyed it as much as he seemed to! My only small complaint is that when they go into different part's of the story (ie the new year celebration) it seemed a little arkward. Other then that, two thumbs up.
I hope that this will become a holiday tradition."
