Rise of the Guardians


I was given the opportunity to review the movie Rise of the Guardians, now out on DVD and Blu-Ray. I had wanted to see it in the theaters, but never got the chance. Instead of just the movie, I was sent a box full of goodies too!

But first, my review of the movie. I wasn’t sure if my daughter would like it, so my hubby and I planned to watch it by ourselves, but Savannah came out curiously and stayed for the whole movie. Pitch, or the boogyman, does not want to be on the backburner anymore. He wants to be known to all the children and take over the world. The Guardians, which consist of Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Sandman must fight Pitch to protect the children. But the Man in the Moon says there is another Guardian that must help, Jack Frost. Only Jack is not a Guardian yet. They must all work together to protect the hopes, beliefs and the imagination of children all over.
We all thought it was a great  movie. Savannah hid her eyes a few times when Pitch came on the screen. I think this would be good for all ages and a great movie to watch together as a family.

Now onto the rest of my goodies….



I made an Easter basket with everything that was sent to us. The movie is being sold with 2 wind up toys eggs. I didn’t understand this until I saw the movie. (The eggs walk) The big tote bag in the back is pretty cool looking. There’s a night light and tattoos and candy.


Included was a flower pot that Savannah took out the paper and colored the pictures and them we planted the Forget Me Nots. Then she watered them with the watering can that came with it.

She is waiting patiently to see the flowers come up.


Isn’t she cute with bunny ears?

This movie would be a perfect Easter gift!!



I received the above products to review. Opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
