When I saw the opportunity to do a review and giveaway on Ballonatiks: The Collectors Edition I thought it would be fantastic because Big J happens to love movies. (We even have a Friday night ritual of movie night when she is good at school) As soon as we received the DVD she was begging to open and watch it.
A little background:
The Balloonatiks centers on five ordinary teens mysteriously transformed into rubbery and bouncy balloons, each gifted with incredible abilities from their unique personalities.
Flater - The school jock
Aribrain - The smartest kid in school
Squeeker - The pretty and popular cheerleader
Sparky - The multi-tasking and multi-talented activist of the group
Bouncer - The class clown and food lover
As soon as it began Big J was glued to the screen and even Little J was enjoying from her swing. The shows were very funny and included some messages for children including team work and having confidence in themselves. I loved that this is a new approach to heros although I have to admit my favorite character was Mr. Point the wacky villain who had hair and fingers made of pins. Such a great villain for a bunch of balloon heroes! I also loved Leaky who was a frog and was turned into the balloon mascot.
There was some farting humor throughout the show so if that bothers you the show is not for you, but otherwise it was a great show and I wished there had been more episodes on the DVD. This is one DVD that will stay in our collection for a long time.
You can purchase the video as well as the paperback backs at amazon.com
