In case you don't know about Jake and his crew then you're missing out. Jake is similar to my generation's Peter Pan. He has a little crew, including Skully the parent and they run around on their ship, Bucky, outsmarting Captain Hook. Yep, that's right, the same Captain Hook we grew up with. This latest adventure (just released on DVD last week, October 16th) is summed up below:
According to the Never Land Pirate Code, Jake and his crew must race Bucky against the Jolly Roger and the sneaky Captain Hook. But if Bucky loses, he’ll belong to Hook forever. Of course, Hook uses every trick in the book and wins the race. But, Jake and his crew might have a way to get Bucky back. With the help of Peter Pan, the young pirates embark on an adventure across Never Land that includes getting past a fire-breathing dragon. With your help, Jake’s crew can save Bucky from the devious Captain Hook. In addition, enjoy four more exciting Jake and the Never Land Pirates episodes. Overflowing with music, swashbuckling action and seafaring fun, Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Jake Saves Bucky proves that being a hero comes from teamwork, determination and friendship!
My Take: My kids have watched this DVD over 4 times. What else is there to say? They love it. I hear them running around singing, " Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Me!!" all day long. Now, whenever it comes on TV the kids ask, "Is this Jake Saves Bucky"? :)
Now from a mommy take, I love it even more. This is the 3rd or 4th Jake and the Pirates DVD that we own and they just keep getting better and better. This one not only has the full length adventure but it also has 4 more TV episodes included and each TV episode contains TWO cartoons! Yes, that's right! Over 2 hours of entertainment. Absolutely perfect for road trips! I also love that these cartoons are educational and interactive. It's all about problem solving and math. An easy way to get your kids interested in science and math! Can't beat that!
Another thing that my kids love are the activity sheets! Disney always has these great activity sheets that you can print out that goes with their DVDs! My kids sometimes do them while they watch or after they watch the DVD. You can print them out by clicking on the image below.
Buy it: This great DVD is available in stores now for the SRP of $19.99US and $24.99CAN. Don't forget this includes the DVD and the Digital Copy so they can watch it on the computer too! (Great when you need to catch up on your shows and the kids want to sit right there with you)!
