No matter how much outdoor fun you want your kids to have this summer, the truth is there will be days that you don’t make it out of the house due to weather, viruses, or just plain laziness! The past few days in NYC have threatened thunderstorms which kept indoors, although it has not actually rained yet. I didn’t want to take the chance of getting caught in the rain with the girls, so we’ve been enjoying some family fun indoor time with games, crafts, and movies. My toddler’s favorite at the moment is Lilo & Stitch, which has just been released on a DVD/BluRay 3 Disc Special Edition 2 movie collection! She loves the music and the characters so much, she has been asking for her fourth birthday party to be a Hawaiian theme!
“Lilo and Stitch” is the story of Lilo, a lonely little girl, and Stitch the mischievous little creature from outer space. When Stitch crash-lands in Hawaii, Lilo adopts him as her pet, but he soon turns her world upside down. Stitch takes Hawaii by storm, wreaking havoc and hanging ten while he evades the alien bounty hunters who are after him, and also learning about loyalty and friendship. Featuring six original Elvis Presley songs, “Lilo and Stitch” is fun for the entire family.
The laughter continues in the hysterical sequel “Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch.” As Stitch settles into life with his human family it appears his molecular makeup is out of whack and his friendship with Lilo is threatened as a result. Lilo and her friends must find a way to restore his “goodness” level before he ruins everything, including Lilo’s big hula competition – the same competition her mother won years before.
Another Disney favorite keeping us entertained while indoors is the 3 disc special edition DVD/Bluray of The Emperor’s New Groove and Kronk’s New Groove.
The fun begins with “The Emperor’s New Groove,” featuring an all-star cast and Academy Award®-nominated music by Sting (Best Music, Original Song, Sting, 2000). When the young and spoiled Emperor Kuzco (voice of David Spade) is transformed into a llama by his sinister advisor Yzma (voice of Eartha Kitt) and her henchman Kronk (voice of Patrick Warburton), it takes a thoughtful peasant named Pasha (voice of John Goodman) to restore the kingdom and show Kuzco just how much fun it is to be true to yourself.
Then audiences can continue the fun with “Kronk’s New Groove.” The outrageous sequel stars Yzma’s hilarious henchman Kronk in a riotous adventure that’s filled with hysterical mayhem and mishaps. Kronk cooks up a get-rich quick scheme to impress his Dad. But when things go wrong, Kronk kicks into comical high gear and discovers that the true riches in life are his friends and being “true to your groove.”
You can order both movies through Amazon and have them shipped just in time for some rainy day fun!
