Now as you know, last week we had an awesome Talk Like a Pirate Party! The star of that party was the Jake and the Neverland Pirates latest DVD release: Ahoy Mateys! Now I have two kids and three of their friends constantly coming over and acting like pirates! They loved it. I'm sure since the party we have watched the DVD at least 6 times and it's only been a little over a week!
In case you didn't know, Jake and the Neverland Pirates is a new cartoon series on Disney. It's all about Jake and his two friends, Izzy and Cubby and their awesome adventures on Neverland Island! Most of the time they are trying to guard their treasure from the infamous Captain Hook, yes the same Captain Hook from Peter Pan, along with his sidekick Mr. Smee. The first DVD release: Ahoy Mateys! comes out today, September 27, 2011 in store nationwide. Here's a little bit about the DVD:
On September 27, The Walt Disney Studios will be releasing Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho, Mateys Away!, a DVD packed full with seven episodes from the series and two incredible bonus features including Yo Ho, You Want To Be A Pirate?, where Jake teaches viewers how to talk like a pirate, and Pirate Party With Pirate-oke, a
collection of music videos performed by The Never Land Pirate Band that
allow viewers to enjoy with or without the sing-along/karaoke-like
My Take: Obviously this DVD gets a big thumb ups in my family. We have it in the playroom DVD player right now! The kids love to watch it over and over again. I think their favorite part of the DVD is the Pirate-oke sing along! They even have a song about how to talk like a pirate; although my personal favorite is Ahh Coconuts! HEHEHE. It's really funny. I'm also happy to report that there is a CD that comes along with the DVD that has the 7 Pirate-oke songs on it! We just popped it into the CD in the car and we play it on the ride to school. The kids love it! I'm sure the teachers are wondering why my little one comes in squinting and saying ARGH! ;) Finally, to make it even more fun, the DVD comes with a pirate eye patch! Now this was a fun one. My kiddos are too little to really enjoy the patch but they did love propping it up on their foreheads! Now if you've never seen the pirates and you want to get a taste of what it's like I have a clip for you to enjoy:
Buy it:The DVD which is being released today is retailing for the price of $19.99 in the U.S. and $24.99 in Canada. It includes 7 episodes, the bonus CD with Pirate-oke songs and an official pirate eye patch.
