Ahhh Veggie Tales. The 1StopMom family has been a fan of thier movies for a long time. When little ones come to visit, it is one fo the favorites. As a parent I like the message that Veggie Tales give. Of course kids the the catchy, silly songs and the characters.
We recently were able to review one of the newest additions to the Veggie Tales family, Veggie Tales Princess and the Popstar.
Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous but lonely world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize that they look almost exactly alike—which leads to the crazy secret plan where they decide to switch lives! As each girl realizes that the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all of their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.
The message of this movie is the grass is not always greener. It is so easy to get caught up with other people are doing and the things they have. Because you don’t actually live in their shoes, you don’t have the opportunity to see the good and the bad. Kids naturally experience this. In a fit of anger they may say “I wish Jill’s mother was my mom, she gets to do anything she wants”. As adults we know that being able to do whatever you want with no boundaries is not a good thing. Princess and the Popstar is a perfect example of a young girl who is happy with her life, but wanted more. I think this teaches a good lesson about how everyone is different and that is what makes them special.
