DVD Review: VeggieTale's Pistachio - The Little Boy That Woodn't

Once upon a time in the small Italian town of Bologna-Salami, there lived a lonely toymaker named Gelato and his assistant Cricket. Gelato had no children he could call his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine Gelato’s surprise when he learned that this little toy boy could walk… and talk… and definitely had a mind of his own!

Like the little lost sheep who strays from the fold, Pistachio decides to try things his way and lands in a “whale” of a situation! Will Pistachio learn that obeying the wisdom of a loving father will help him find what he really needs and could be the key to saving his whole family from becoming fish food? Find out in this all new VeggieTales adventure with a lesson about the importance of family and listening to your parents.

VeggieTale's has done it again! Pistachio is a great family movie with a wonderful lesson. I loved the way that the movie combined popular culture with fairytale. I was laughing most of the way through it. The best part, for me, was watching and reviewing this video with three young friends. I liked listening to them laugh, and watching them absorb the story of the good shepherd. Here are their reactions to the movie.

K, age 10 - Very Funny!

L, age 8 - Everyone should watch it!

A, age 6 - 300 Thumbs up!

I couldn't have said it better myself!
