VeggieTales Double GIVEAWAY and A Review of The Little Drummer Boy

One of my favorite children's series of all time is VeggieTales.  I've trusted the makers of these sweet shows for the last 13 years, and I've never been disappointed in their approach to teaching Christian values through entertainment! It's my pleasure to tell you a little about their newest release.

This Christmas season you'll want to be sure to pick up your copy of VeggieTales: The Little Drummer Boy! This is a heartwarming story, that retells the classic made-for-TV version, from 1968.  Inspired by the Biblical story of Jesus' birth and Based on Ephesians 4:32, which says, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you,” this DVD offers a timeless message of hope, generosity and love during the holiday season.  Reminding us all to ask ourselves, "What gifts can I bring to the newborn King??" You'll also love hearing multi-Grammy and Dove Award-winning artists BeBe and CeCe Winans singing their version of the iconic “The Little Drummer Boy” song. Some new songs written for this production are, “Can’t Smile Without Ewe,” and the newly animated, classic Veggie Christmas song, “The 8 Polish Foods of Christmas."

In this Veggie-version of a holiday classic, Junior Asparagus stars as The Little Drummer Boy, a lonely child who finds the true meaning of Christmas when he stumbles upon the birth of the baby Jesus. It's great to see so many of our favorite Veggie characters back on the screen! Bob the Tomato, Pa Grape, Mr. Nezzar, Archibald and Mr. Lunt join Larry, Junior and many more of your favorite Veggies in this wonderful family story. This DVD can be purchased online at (with free delivery for orders over $30) or at your local Walmart or Christian bookstore!

  1. Larry and Bob are like old friend to me. They remind me of the journey through the last 15 years with my boys... Daniel was in 1st grade when we first discovered Veggie Tales and Tyler was only a baby. Silly Songs accompanied us on family vacations and God is bigger than the Boogieman helped us get through some rough nights. As the boys got bigger and we had another little boy... they had fun teaching JJ all the songs and of course more DVD's. JJ loves Mo and Big Exit. So, for me veggie tales reminds me of each of my boys and what character they loved and what VHS tape we watched the most... and it makes me smile. Well I got to go... "Oh where is my hairbrush.... "

  2. Without a doubt, Larry is my favorite!! He IS everyman...and a super-hero too!! :) Larry is the innocence, spontaniety, and sheer joy of childhood. Also, his silly songs bring an exuberance to the mundane. I really like him ...a lot! LOL

  3. I would have to say Junior Asparagus....he might be small but he is large in his faith!!! He is my favorite!!!!

  4. I would have to say Junior Asparagus!!! He is small but large in faith!!!!!!

  5. I have to say Larry. I have to say the Dance of the Cucumber is what did it for me. He captured my dancing heart. LOL I love his zest for life.

  6. Larry's always been my favorite, though I am a little partial to Junior as well.

  7. we love junior.. my sweet lo just giggles when she hears him talk.. when she was little, if she went into meltdown mode.. we would trun on the theme song and life would be good again!!
