Giveaway & Review: 8 Kids DVDs from The Cookie Jar Company [CLOSED]

Mill Creek Entertainment released 8 titles from Cookie Jar Entertainment on July 27 and we were fortunate enough to get to review them all. Each DVD contains 10 great episodes and runs for over 4 hours each.

The New Adventures of Nanoboy features the heroics of the world’s smallest superhero, Nanoboy, as he battles the micro-cosmos. Amoebas, proteins, bacteria, and cells beware! In Mona the Vampire, Mona, a 10 year old wannabe vampire, helps solve mysteries in her town. With the help of her sidekick vampire kitty, Fang, she uses her larger-than-life imagination to crack the case. Nanoboy and Mona were the big hits among the kids. They really loved the superhero and detective fun these two had.




I may not be a kid, but I can still enjoy cartoons, and enjoy I did. Horseland, my personal favorite, was just like it sounds, a land of horses. A lovable group of children strive to become the best competitive horse riders they can while still remaining children and friends. These are stories of honestly, integrity, confidence, and love, things we would all like our children to learn. Wimzie’s House was a favorite among the younger children, particularly the 18 month old and young 2 year old. It was cute and endearing and reminded me of a cross between Fraggle Rock and Muppets with a little bit of Sesame Street. Music, songs, and imagination were the theme in these cute episodes.


Sally Cat, Hilda Hippo, Pig Will, Lowly Worm and more are back! Richard Scarry’s classic children’s books come to life in Busytown Mysteries and The Busy World of Richard Scarry. Busytown Mysteries was a little “cutesier” than the other, but both feature the Scarry characters and feel. Busytown is an enchanting little place that’s abuzz with energy, life, imagination. Scarry has written over 300 books and sold over 300 million copies worldwide, so every child is sure to love these DVD’s.


Super Duper Sumos features three super duper 18 year old sumo wrestlers who were sent to the modern world with ancient powers. With the help of their mentor, Wisdom San, they are always ready to defend the principles of PHAT; Peace, Honor, And Truth. Finally, World of Quest, The Quest Begins, is a hilarious action series following Prince Nestor on a mission to save his parents. With his amazing muscled protector, Quest, by his side, he faces the world. The catch is that Quest really doesn’t want to help nor does he care about the Prince, his parents, or their kingdom, but he is under the power of a magic spell which forces him to help. Much comedy ensues in this action-packed, super fun show.


I can honestly say that the children truly enjoyed all of these DVD’s and there were none they didn’t like. Sometimes they lost interest for awhile, but they always came back. A great buy for $9.98 each.


Look for these and other Cookie Jar DVDs at major retailers, such as Amazon.com .
