What happens? His game goes ‘KERPOW!’ That’s when Larry learns a valuable lesson in listening as his friends come to the rescue. Kids will discover, right along with Larry, that God gave friends and family to help us through each day—so when we listen we don’t miss what others have to say!  Also includes two classic shows: “Pistachio” and “Josh and the Big Wall”.

Bob Lends a Helping Hand VeggieTales DVD
Genre: Christian Children’s Musical DVD
Recommended Ages: 4-14
Duration: Approx. 75 minutes
Release: October 18th, 2011
Publisher: Big Idea, Inc

When Joe’s mom breaks her big left toe, Bob the Tomato decides to help. Larry and Joe offer their ‘superhero’ help, too, but that’s not exactly what Bob has in mind. Kids will discover right along with Larry and Joe that everyone can be a superhero if you lend a helping hand! Also includes two classic shows, “Tomato Sawyer and Huckleberry Larry’s Big River Rescue” and “Lyle the Kindly Viking”.

Some of our favorite board books are a set from a collection called Veggie Values (<–My Review) and two of those books are these stories that are now DVDs! I could not be more excited to take something that we loved already and now have it on ever lasting and entertaining film.

We have this as a board book part of a VeggieValues collection. We are super excited that both are being made into a new themed VeggieTales DVD combining some older VT short films all about listening. Moral stories, personal examples and even Biblical lessons all add up to the same thing. In Larry Learns to Listen –> The importance of listening and gaining wisdom. Plus seeing Larry dressed as a wood cutter is just plain cute! We have previously seen and loved the shorter films of Pistachio and Josh and the Big Wall so it is very exciting to now be able to own them in this collection of learning to listen. Then with Bob Lends a Helping Hand it was great to be introduced to new-to-us shorter films within this DVD including Tomato Sawyer and Huckleberry Larry as well as Lyle the Viking. I love being introduced to more new-to-me and new to the world VeggieTales music and movies. There are so many things out there that I would rather my kids not see, and thanks to the wonderful people in Franklin Tennessee, they’re filled with Christian and valuable entertainment possibilities over and again.

As for the individual book Larry Learns to Listen, it is a long lasting lesson on both patience and learning to listen. Otherwise you might mess it all up for yourself like Larry with his brand new video game.

    Thank you for the giveaway!!
    I enjoy veggie tales!!
    Listening and helping are very good things to learn!!

  • Griffin Keller

    We are just getting into this series! We have just 2 CDs right now to listen to and I think he’d enjoy the DVDs:)

  • LB

    Having a two year old that sings the entire intro song including the final “bonk” might make one assume we have a lot of VT instead of the two treasured ones here. They’d all love it.

  • Katherine Lauer

    What a great giveaway! Veggie Tales passes many a rainy day.

  • Kathryn Murphy

    We love Veggie Tales! These are DVDs even adults enjoy.

  • My 20, 21 year old and older teenagers will still crack themselves up singing these!

  • MJB

  • I’d love to have these as a start to a collection for my future grandkids. These are some of the best kids videos out there! Thanks for the giveaway, this is great.

  • My daughter is so into veggie tales! I love the message that they put out there and think that they are so cute. We don’t have either of these two movies so we would love to add them to our collection. Fingers crossed! LOL
    Patricia Alner´s last blog post ..Looking for a great event to take the kids to this weekend!

  • I’d love to be entered!

  • I’m happy to run across this. I actually animated on Lyle back when Big Idea was still in Illinois, and more recently on Helping Hand as a freelancer (and many others). They don’t give us freelancers the DVDs when they’re done, so I actually haven’t seen many of the recent episodes — beyond the scenes I animated, anyways.

    It would feel a little strange to win these so you don’t have to enter me in the drawing if you don’t want to, but all my kids would love to see them, I’m sure. They really thought the strap on hands gag was a riot (so did I).

  • And the winner is… MJB!
