DD saw Rise of the Guardians when it first came out in the theater. My husband had taken her to see it on a Father-Daughter date night while I stayed home with the little guy. When they came home, DD was really excited about the movie and told me all about it. I was bummed that I did not get to see it in the theater, but I was glad that she got to spend some quality time with her daddy. Since I missed the movie, I could not wait to watch it on DVD. My family was lucky enough to have a received a review copy so we got to watched it together as a family. Everyone in the family thought it was really enjoyable! I especially like the holiday packaging for the DVD. It came with a matching toy elf that has become one of G man's favorite toys.
If you have little ones in the family, I highly recommend picking up the DVD to add it to your family video collection. I think it will also a great stocking stuffer as well!
