Balloonatiks: The Collector's Set Review & Giveaway

banner



Yes, I let my boys watch TV, and I will be the first to admit that it gives me a nice break once in a while.  However, I always know what they are watching, and I tend to be a little picky.  I was very excited when we got the opportunity to try the Ballonatiks: The Collector's Set.  

 Here is a little background of the Ballonatiks:

Balloonatiks Logo
They're five ordinary teens mysteriously transformed into rubbery, shape-stretching super heroes who take on any of the evil-doers that dare to threaten Hot Air City. Meet The Balloonatiks -- Flator, Squeeker, Airbrain, Sparky, Bouncer and Leaky -- as they star in their very first animated comedy-adventures!

I have to point out that I love the way my kids request to watch this DVD.  "Can we please watch the Loonatiks?"  It just makes me laugh.

When I first put in the DVD, the house got very quiet, and the kids were captivated with the story.  They loved it, but as expected, they got distracted pretty quickly. 
I think the characters are very original and likable.  There is some comedy the kids probably don't always understand, but it was enjoyable.
I think it would probably be ideal for kids a little older than mine who are 4, 3, and 21 months.

Buy It: You can buy Balloonatiks: The Collector's Set DVD from Amazon.com for around $10.
Win It: The Balloonatiks are giving one lucky Kids and Deals reader a copy of their Collector's Set DVD.
