Today's DVD releases:

Disney's The Princess and The Frog- Disney’s newest princess, Tiana, joins ranks with Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Pocahontas, Jasmine and Mulan. The Princess and the Frog is Disney’s first princess film since Mulan, which was released in June 1998.

It's the story of Tiana, a beautiful hard working young woman who dreams of owning her own restaurant some day.  She has no idea how far that dream will take her.  But, with the help of friends and the courage to overcome the greatest of odds, Tiana learns what she really needs to make her dreams become a reality.  You can read my full review and the DVD and BluRay extras in the previous contest post.  If you'd like a chance to win a copy of this DVD, click here.  The contest ends Friday!

Not to be outshined by a mere Princess, Caillou - Caillou Pretends to be is also available today on DVD from PBS.   Jam packed into this DVD are 14 episodes of the popular PBS for Kids Television show featuring the ever imaginative Caillou who pretends to be everything from a Police Officer to a builder.  This show definitely inspires imagination which I love.  The DVD includes extras such as “Caillou’s Music Videos,” interactive games, character bios, parents’ information and coloring pages.

My younger kids love PBS and enjoyed this DVD, I think my oldest was probably off somewhere fixing her hair or changing her clothes for the fifteenth time.  If you have younger children, this is a great video to keep around for those times when you need to get some chores done or take with you on vacation to pop in the DVD player as you travel as it's run time is approximately 100 minutes.
