TITLE: Veggie Tales-Pistachio The Little Boy That Woodn’t DVD
PUB DATE: March 2010
Once upon a time in the small town of Bologna-Salami, there lived a lonely toymaker named Gelato and his assistant Cricket. Gelato had no children of his own, so one day he decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine Gelato’s surprise when he learned this little boy could walk…and talk…and definitely had a mind of his own! When Pistachio tries to do things his way, he lands in a “whale” of a situation! Will he decide to listen to the wisdom of a loving father in time to save his whole family from becoming fish food? Find out in this all-new adventure with a lesson about the importance of family and learning to listen.
When I got the email from Julie at Graf Martin to review this I jumped at the opportunity. We love watching Veggie Tale movies because there is always a lesson to learn or a message that manages to make kids grasp it. Plus the cute and catchy songs are well worth the listen.
Pistachio is a great movie that puts a spin on the childhood classic Pinicchio. I remember watching Pinicchio when I was younger. In all honesty I don’t remember taking away alot form that movie apart from you shouldn’t lie because your nose will grow and I always thought that until I was a little older when I realized that its impossible for that to happen.
The VeggieTale version is so much easier for kids to get the message that they should obey their parents and listen to them even though at their age its hard from them to do and they don’t want to listen and obey. They also emphasize that the parents are older and much more wiser and that what we say is 120% out of love and nothing more.
