LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE: A MERRY INGALLS CHRISTMAS

Little house on the Prairie A Merry Ingalls Christmas

Little House On The Prairie: A Merry Ingalls Christmas from Lionsgate Home Entertainment will be released on DVD on November 4th!  Both classic specials have been restored to original broadcast length and remastered for superior picture and sound.

Just in time for the holiday season, Little House On The Prairie: A Merry Ingalls Christmas arrives on DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD November 4th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

The perfect stocking stuffer for the entire family, Little House On The Prairie: A Merry Ingalls Christmas features two heartwarming episodes, “Christmas At Plum Creek” and “A Christmas They’ll Never Forget,” restored to original broadcast length and remastered for optimal picture and sound quality, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $9.98.

Celebrate the holidays with two classic “Little House” specials. In “Christmas at Plum Creek,” the members of the Ingalls family share a heartwarming first Christmas in their new home, and Laura makes a personal sacrifice that captures the meaning of the holidays. In “A Christmas They Never Forgot,” the family waits out a snowstorm by remembering favorite Christmases from the past.

The Christmas stories from Little House on the Prairie are much loved here. They makes everyone feel so warm and comfy. It takes you to a place -- a cabin in the woods -- where you might wake up to a fire crackling or fall asleep with your pa playing the fiddle. The stories always show what is important and how a wonderful Christmas can be had with just a few simple gifts.

My Thoughts: Little House on The Prairie: A Merry Ingalls Christmas is the perfect addition to any holiday movie collection. "Christmas at Plum Creek" is an episode from Season 1. In this episode, each member of the Ingalls family finds unique way to make or give a Christmas gift for their family members.  The second Christmas episode included is is A Christmas They Never Forgot, an episode from Season 8. This Christmas special shows the Ingalls snowed in during Christmas and they all share stories of Christmas's past with each other.

Earth to Echo

In this PG summer family adventure movie, Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they team up with another school friend, Emma, and set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.

My kids couldn't have been more excited for the DVD release of Earth To Echo! We saw Earth to Echo in the movie theater and it is a really fun movie! To celebrate the DVD release of Earth to Echo, I surprised my girls with a plush Echo to adopt as their very own! #AdoptEcho We have been having so much fun with Echo since we returned from vacation.

Earth to Echo Adoption Tips

Here is a downloadable document to help you get started if you can't think of great activities with Echo once you have your very own Echo that you have adopted. My girls were playing playdoh with Echo, eating with Echo, snuggling with Echo. he ate breakfast with the girls every morning. He traveling to academy with us on Monday! I had to remind my girls they were not allowed to bring stuffies to school with them and Echo came home with me. My daughter was so cute last night and made a little bed  beside hers and tucked in Echo, sleep mask and all!

#AdoptEcho

When you adopt Echo #AdoptEcho you will be even be given an official adoption document. My girls had so much fun filling out their adoption record for Echo. This document is quite official looking and can easily be framed and placed on your child's wall in their bedroom.
