Horrid Henry The Movie & Treehouse TV on DVD & CONTEST! (~OVER~)

My kids saw this Horrid Henry The Movie dvd package at Wal-Mart and were pretty impressed.  After all, it comes in a neon green "slime pack" that allows the kids to...slime themselves!  If you're the mom of little boys, you'll totally understand that sliming yourself is a good thing.

We had a chance to watch Horrid Henry: The Movie, a Wal-Mart exclusive.  It features an all-star cast including Anjelica Huston, Parminder Nagra (Bend it Like Beckham), Richard D. Grant and Theo Stevenson.  The movie is based upon the book series by Francesca Simon, which is the second most successful literary character in the UK--after Harry Potter.

Horrid Henry is about Henry, a boy of around 10-years old who always gets into trouble at home and at school.  However, his chance to be a hero presents itself when he is faced with having his public school permanently closed down--and he can raise funds to save it.  He rises to the challenge.  

The movie was a success with my kids, especially with my 6- and 7-year old children.  I believe it would be popular with even older public school aged kids.  It definitely had lots of laughs, and my oldest child said his favourite part was when Horrid Henry almost fell into a pool of green slime (in the game show scene).  The dvd was just released on February 19th.

Check out a trailer from Horrid Henry: The Movie, below!

In addition to Horrid Henry: The Movie, kaboom! Entertainment will also release the CGI animated version of The Jungle Book: The Movie, to be available in Wal-Mart stores on March 5th.  For families who love Treehouse TV shows, nine titles were also released exclusively to Wal-Mart and are available for purchase right now, (see titles below).  In fact, Wal-Mart now houses a special Treehouse TV section, which carries exclusive titles along with key episodic titles such as Toopy and Binoo and The Octonauts.
