The Original Christmas Classics

We were sent a box set of the Original Christmas Classics on Blu-Ray to review and they have been a huge hit in our household!

Here is a brief intro that the PR rep sent me:

This holiday season, the world famous holiday special Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town celebrates its 40th anniversary!

The iconic special, which first debuted in 1970, tells the story of how Santa Claus and several honored Christmastime traditions came to be. The consistently highly-rated special remains an enduring part of American culture, and each year, millions of viewers look forward to watching it with their families and friends. In honor of the occasion, Classic Media is inviting Entertainment Tonight hosts and naughty and nice celebrities everywhere to watch this special and much more as part of the ultimate holiday Blu-ray gift set: The Original Christmas Classics.

The box set contains four of the most beloved holiday TV specials of all time, including the Rankin/Bass classics “Frosty the Snowman,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” and “Frosty Returns.” It’s the first time any of them are available on Blu-ray and they’ve never looked better!


OUR REVIEW

My kids have loved watching these classics! It was really fun for me to get the chance to introduce my kids to some of the shows I loved as a child. Although my kids love all three of the classics it has been interesting to see how they each have chosen a favourite. Olivia is a big fan of Frosty the Snowman and it was great to watch how enthralled she was with the adventures of Frosty! 

Owen is partial to Santa Claus is Comin' to Town because he is absolutely obsessed with Santa... there is not a single doubt in his mind that Santa is real. Owen has written at LEAST 4 different letters to Santa this year alone. 

Aiden found Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer fascinating and we have had many discussions about "the island of misfit toys" and what it means to be a misfit and why Rudolph was teased for being different. It has actually created a few good teaching moments for us because kids with Autism tend to learn quite well from obvious stories like Rudolph. 

These really are classics and if you haven't picked a set up yet than you really should! 

Thanks so much to Classic Media for sending me a set to review.

Our family watched Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Sunday night and although it was super corny, it reminded us of the pre-xmas excitment in our house when our kids were still young! Our kids are 17 & 19 years old now. Where has the time gone?
