My children are Veggie Tales fanatics. They plug a movie in after school or listen to a CD. The music has their toes tapping and their voices singing right along with the adorable characters. As a mom I appreciate the life lessons taught. Our newest favorite Veggie Tales DVD is Veggie Tales: Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men, featuring lessons in handling hurt feelings!
As a parent it’s sometimes terrifying to turn on the television. Commercials for products my children don’t need to know about (and I really don’t want to explain) and shows that seem like a good option until bad language or poor values interrupts and we’re scrambling for a better option. Thankfully, with Veggie Tales, I can trust that it’s wholesome and that my children will have a greater understanding of traits I want them to have as a person.
With the great characters and the silly humor, my kiddos enjoy the entertainment. When they saw the new Veggie Tales DVD they were so excited. They watched it and then Li’l Man came to tell me he was so sad for Robin Good because all of his friends abandoned him to give stealing a try instead of sticking to the mission of helping the poor. His heart really hurt for Robin Good, but then Li’l Man told me that Robin Good still helped his friends, when they discovered the Prince was not really their friend. He even understood that the message was even when we feel sad and alone, we are loved and have God and our family celebrating who we are!
A long time ago, in the faraway town of Bethlingham, roved a band of merry men led by the fearless Robin Good. Their mission: to help people by fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor! But when a greedy Prince starts stealing the townspeople’s hams, donations are down and Robin’s friends take off and decide to give robbing from the rich a try. Feeling rejected, Robin thinks things can’t get any worse, until he finds out the ham-hoarding Prince has also captured his friends. Can Robin overcome his own hurt, rescue his friends and restore the townspeople’s hope? Find out in this fun Veggie story where kids learn that there’s no hurt too big for God!
