The Adventures of Mouse And Mole DVD Review & Giveaway**Closed**


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 
We got to review a really cute DVD a little while back called The Adventures of Mouse and Mole and it's a really fun and simple DVD with 10 different episodes to watch of these two characters going thru life helping each other out. I got Volume 1 and there is also a Volume 2 that you can get if you chose to. Volume 1 runs about 50 minutes. You don't have to worry about which Volume you get because they are not joined together. They are each stand alone stories about these two friends so it won't see out of place or out of sequence no matter which Volume you get.
 
Here's a list of the Episodes on Volume 1:
  • Preposterous Puddle
  • Tidying Up
  • Stuff
  • The Daffodil
  • Least Expecting
  • The Picnic
  • The Hammock
  • Whiskers
  • Half A Banana
  • Catch A Falling Leaf
 
The whole DVD is made up of stories about these two friends, Mouse & Mole, who help each other thru good times and bad times. I thought it was a nice, safe collection of animated characters that show us how we should respond and act in certain situations. Of course, Mouse is the practical one while the Mole changes his mind or his mood on a whim. We all know someone like that and it can be hard to plan things when you never know what they are going to do.
 
How it all started:
This series originally aired in BBC is a sparkling adaptation of Joyce Dunbar's classic stories about practical Mouse and capricious Mole. Mouse and Mole live together in a little cottage in the country. Mouse is practical and cheerful. Mole gets into scrapes and needs mollycoddling. Their everyday adventures appeal to adults and children alike. the charm of the stories lies in the endearing friendship of the two central characters and the humor of their exchanges.

OrganaKids has a lot more DVD's you can get for your children and for yourself. Like I said earlier, they do have a Volume 2 of The Adventures of Mouse and Mole and it has about 9 episodes are on. Then there are a few other animated stories and then there are some Yoga DVD's that include Mom or another adult while the whole family tries their hand at doing Yoga! OrganaKids does offer free shipping on orders over $50.00.

There are also some DVD's that are meant for adults only and those look to be more on the educational or history side.  I think some are actually true stories about real people and real events. Some are from here and it looks like some are from other countries in Europe like Great Britian and France.

As I browsed through the film section of the site I found a DVD called Fontainebleau: A Rendezvous at the Castle. I have heard so much about this castle that I need to order this film. My dad had volunteered for a mission in the war and he got to spend a month or so at Fontainebleau. It sounds like a fairy tale castle to me as he told his stories.
