Mr. Peabody and Sherman, we’ve unboxed the movie & merch!
If you haven’t already seen our review of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, spoiler alert; we loved it! Today we’re unboxing some of the movie merch along with the Blu-ray. We are recommending this in our holiday gift guide because there aren’t that many movies that the whole family can truly enjoy. Usually, someone on the couch is underserved, usually it’s the parents. If the parents honestly enjoy the film, then the kids are generally left unimpressed. And if the parents and the kids like it, it may skew male/female, or the teens fall out. If the teens like it, chances are, there’s no way you’d want your 6 year old to see the film.
That’s what makes this picture so unique. Because it’s based on the original characters from the popular 1960’s television series, there is a lot of resonance with adults. Because the original cartoons visually define a design era, there is an audience of younger adults who are brought to the couch. And because Rob Minkoff and his team at Dreamworks did such a fantastic job bringing the story forward and delivering first rate animation, kids of all ages (from about 6 or 7 up) will want a seat on the sofa!
If you’d like to dig a little deeper, here’s our interview with Jay Ward’s daughter, Tiffany. Tiffany had a vital role in bringing this animated feature to the screen. It’s fascinating to hear from her about what it was like growing up (it’s said that the Captain Crunch character – from the cereal box – is based on her Dad) as well as some behind the scenes scoop on the making of this movie.
If this is the first time you’ve seen this on EncinoMom, you probably missed our giveaway, sorry. Below are still photos of some of the products unboxed in this video. Those pics link to Amazon where you can purchase them or get more information. We recommend you get the movie to watch with the family while the kids are out of school. If they love it as much as we do, there are lots of opportunities to fill their stockings with Mr. Peabody and Sherman goodies. For adult fans, we highly recommend the art book. While we didn’t unbox it in this video, we did receive a copy when we screened the movie at Dreamworks. It’s beautiful and full of details and fun facts.
