The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh- Review



 
I have been especially mindful and grateful for good friends lately.  The hardest thing about moving this summer was moving away from many dear people.  The most comforting thought is that many of them are lifelong friendships that I know will stay strong, no matter how long the time or distance.

I'm keenly aware of this blessing this week.  While I moved farther from most friends, I actually moved closer to one of my oldest childhood friends.  We went to pre-school together,  took ballet class together, went to each other's birthday parties, served on student council together, and even suffered through pre-calculus together.  There have been years when life has taken us in different directions and we were out of touch, but it is so wonderful when we do catch up.  As soon as I moved here, she wanted to catch up and show me around.  We got together and it felt like no time had passed at all.  Good friends are friends for life in my book.  She quickly invited me to meet some of her friends and gave me tips on living in the area.

These things stirred in my mind as I recently watched The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh with my kids.  The classic tales of friendship brought back so many memories for me.  I loved these stories and the movie as a kid, and unfortunately hadn't shared them with my three kids yet.  We talked about all of the different personalities in this fun group of friends and compared them to ourselves.

I asked them if they were an Eeyore or a Tigger?  Are they friends with people who are like Piglet?  Or Rabbit?  We talked about how you don't have to be exactly the same as your friends and you can learn from people who are different.  And we just had to talk about who our "Christopher Robin" is.  You know, the friend you can look forward to seeing and just "doing nothing" with (the movie's final scene with Christopher Robin and Pooh has always been my favorite.).  My son was the first to know who his "Christopher Robin" is.  He had a hard time moving away from his little buddy across the street, but I told him that good friendships last a long time, no matter the distance.  The proof was there as I told him that I had just gotten together with my old friend from pre-school.


Walt Disney Pictures is releasing The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh for the first time on Blu-ray Combo Pack and HD on August 27th.  Of course I jumped at the chance of reviewing and sharing my nostalgia with you.  I hope you guys get to share this classic tale of friendship with your families.  For more information go to their website or check out their Facebook page.

  76. Friendship is very improtant in any childs life, i try to get my son to build as many friendships early in life as possible to help teach him how to share and give him a sense of loyalty. Adventure and imagination are also soo so important to my young son, these charactoristics play big roles in anything a child does and wants to grow up to be, imagination allows him to pretend to be anything he wants and adventure lets him think of things he can do that help him imagine what he wants to be.
