HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE HOLLY HOBBIE & FRIENDS CHRISTMAS WISHES DVD REVIEW & GIVEAWAY (*CLOSED*)

Created in 1970's, the iconic Holly Hobbie doll gets a modern-day makeover in a cartoon series that ditches the trademark bonnet and rag-dress for more fashionable attire without losing any of the wholesome charm that made the original such a success. This volume presents the full-length holiday episode "Christmas Wishes," which features the vocal styling of guest star LeAnn Rimes.

In this special, when Holly visits her friends and family for Christmas, she learns of the unfortunate situation of a recently widowed woman and her twin boys. Holly tries to help her out. At first, it doesn't really work, but her joy is infectious. The mother is feeling sort of down because this is going to be her first Christmas without her husband. But Holly and her friends really help her to see that although her kids are upset about their fathers' death too, they're still excited about Christmas.

If you're looking for a holiday special that will teach your kids about all the different winter hoildays, then look elsewhere. "Christmas Wishes" is pure Christmas all the way and it's refreshing to see a special these days in which the characters take part in a Christmas pageant, do lap-sitting with Santa and sing traditional Christmas carols such as "O Holy Night".


"Christmas Wishes" puts all other recent children's holiday specials to shame. This production absolutely glows with joy, top-notch production values, writing, music and animation. The music and vocal performances in particular are absolutely awe-inspiring. There's a performance by Grammy award winning country singer LeAnn Rimes at the end that's so strong, it gave me chills of amazed delight.

If you or your kids like Holly Hobbie or you're looking for a truly amazing Christmas special, don't just pass this by. This is absolutely worth your time.
This DVD is close-captioned. It also includes two neat bouns features --- an Interactive Dress-Up game and a photo gallery.
This is a cute film, I'd recommend to people all ages. Holly is a fun character, with many endearing qualities.
