I grew up reading The Boxcar Children series. I owned and read each one! So when I had the opportunity to review The Boxcar Children DVD (Collector’s Addition), I was SO excited! Our children are still young (ages 4, 6 and 8), so although I plan to share the books with them, they aren’t yet ready to read books on their own – especially of that level. This DVD, though, was something I could definitely share with them! I couldn’t wait to see it myself as well!
If you’re unfamiliar with The Boxcar Children, it’s the story of four children who have become orphans and are homeless. On a particularly stormy day, they realized the need to find a place to live and found an abandoned boxcar. They used a lot of creativity to make the boxcar their home. I don’t want to spoil all the details, though! 😉
It features an all-star cast of voice actors including Academy Award® Nominee Martin Sheen (“Apocalypse Now”), J.K. Simmons (“Spiderman”), Zach Gordon (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”), Joey King (“Fargo”), Mackenzie Foy (“Twilight”), and Jadon Sand (“LEGO: The Movie”).
This DVD has animation that is bright and eye-catching. It wraps up the whole story in 81 minutes, which is ideal for young children. Our children easily sat through it, and they have, in fact, watched it multiple times. They ask to watch it almost every day! I have to admit, I was excited that they enjoy it so much! It is one of those movies that they will sit and watch and be totally focused on it.
My husband, who never experienced The Boxcar Children before, also really enjoyed it. It’s one of those movies we don’t mind if the kids watch it multiple times. It is cute, interesting, and is really a nice movie we can enjoy as a family!
The Boxcar Children DVD (Collector’s Edition) can be purchased at Walmart.
