The Whimsys are definitely Veggie Tales lovers. What's not to love? They're silly clever fun stories with great messages about faith and in the middle of each video they break for a silly song. Many of which I know all the lyrics to. Sometimes I lose count of how many good messages each video has. Plus, Mr. Whimsy and I love all the gentle teasing they do and pop culture references. So we were definitely excited to check out the latest release The Little House That Stood.
The Little House That Stood features two parables. The first is the one on the cover. It's about the importance of building your life on a strong foundation of faith. This one was my favorite of the two and features the three little pigs. Bonus! But in this story the three little pigs are hip, slick, and actually two bros and a sis. In my favorite scene one is drinking a latte, the other is texting, and the third is buying a Groupon. Love it! I also liked the side message that it isn't the pretty stuff on top that matters. It's what is underneath that really counts.
The second parable, The Good Egg of Gooseville, is about loving thy neighbor. While not as cute as the first, it's still fun to see the vegetables playing Mother Goose characters. Especially Madame Blueberry playing Little Miss Muffet. I love that sassy gal. The message this time is about helping others and the ripple effect that comes from helping even just one person.
Overall we really like The Little House That Stood. The first story is about 16 minutes long and second is about 22 minutes long. In total the DVD is 49 minutes long.
