TV as babysitting; Turtly Necessary

>> Tuesday, 12 July 2011

I'm going to come straight out and say it; we're in Wk 4 of The Summer Break and I'm not Superwoman. So I have, on occasion, resorted to tv as babysitting over the last couple of weeks to let me get a few things done (like write the odd blog post, for example).

That's why I was delighted to be sent a copy of 'The Turtle's Tale' to review with The Boys on this blog. Here's some of what the blurb says about it;

'A TURTLE’S TALE: SAMMY’S ADVENTURES 3D is an epic global adventure story, an animated family feature made spectacularly real by the latest in 3D technology. A young sea-turtle’s romantic quest for his first, lost love, a fellow hatch-ling, born on the same Californian beach, takes him on a marathon voyage across the seven seas, to the furthest corners of the earth.'

We watched it together, and the Boys loved it. So much, in fact, they've watched it twice since and would have done so more but for the strict embargo we have in place on watching more ANY film more than once a week (it was the excessive Star Wars viewing that forced the introduction of this rule, your Honour).

In brief then, it's great entertainment for the children for an afternoon, it's heart is in the right place, there are plenty of positive messages about the Environment and taking care of it throughout, fun characters, good role models, and The Boys - given the re-enactment currently taking place in the living room - rate it highly, so I'm more than happy to recommend it to you as suitable holiday entertainment...

A TURTLE’S TALE: SAMMY’S ADVENTURES 3D will be released in 3D on DVD and Blu-ray by Optimum, on 18th July 2011

Always love the idea of 3D but question just how many of us have 3D TVs etc....heck I'm obviously in one of those moods. Blame it on the euphoria of being on-line again!!!!

That sounds great - I bet the boys would love it. Mine are plugged into Ben 10 as we speak.

Bless your heart. Summer break and 2 little boys can drive one to drink. I have many fond (ish) memories of the boys building extensive and elaborate 'forts' in the living room, using all the blankets in the house and making an ungodly mess. However, summers in Phoenix were no joke, and going outside - unless you were in the pool - was out of the question, so I did what I had to do to maintain my sanity...

TW, you get a non-3D option too (which is the one we watched as we don't have 3D tv either).

NVG, ah, Ben 10...
