Gigi’s Big Break by Sheila Walsh {DVD}


imageMy Rating: 4 stars


Two new, fully-animated heart-warming stories and a fun sing-along song.

The White Lie: Sheila Walsh reminds little girls that it’s no fun getting in trouble. But when we do wrong and try to cover our sin, things only get worse and our hearts get heavy with guilt. But we have a God who knows our weaknesses and loves us anyway. Teaches the lesson of 1 John 1:8-9 “If we say we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, he will forgive...and cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done.” (ICB)

The Pink Surprise: Sheila Walsh says: “Isn’t it fun to be the first in line? When I was young, all the kids would run to get as close as possible to the front. It’s a little like being the only child in a family—you get one hundred percent of your parents’ attention, and can sometimes even feel like the world revolves around you. But it turns out that there are other blessings in life besides being first, and Gigi has been blessed with an adventure that will last a lifetime.” Teaches the lesson from Jesus’ prayer in Luke 10:21 “Father, you have hidden things from the people who are wise and smart... but shown them to those who are like little children.” (ICB)


I like the fun, yet Biblical, approach in both episodes of this newest Gigi DVD.  My girls really enjoy the fun antics of this “all things princess” girl and they learn from her, too. This DVD not only entertained my children, but taught them and opened up an opportunity to talk about lying when my 4-year-old daughter asked about Gigi’s lying.  I felt that for an entertaining kid’s DVD it did a good job of presenting Biblical truth and principles in an understandable manner for kids.  I would recommend this DVD to kids 3 to 7 and specifically for girls.  However, boys who have sisters may enjoy watching it as well.  There is a boy character in it to make it a little more appropriate for boys who do happen to be watching this one.
