Missy Mila: Twisted Tales Volume 1 Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product description-
      Mila is an 8-year-old quirky, energetic tomboy who loves to tell you traditional story-tales but with her own twist. Kids will be inspired to use their imagination and to become storytellers themselves. Audience participation is triggered by Mila's direct-to-camera asides all along the episode; her questions and games bring kids right into the story. Join Mila, laugh at the zany dialogs and fresh art in this innovative series which explores the world of classic tales.
        Traditional tales are timeless stories that everyone loves to delve back into, generation after generation. Far from old-fashioned clichés, the series “Missy Mila: Twisted Tales” revamps this cultural heritage through the imagination and spontaneity of a present-day little girl. Mila’s stories are peppered with spicy anachronisms and offbeat re-interpretations. So, don’t act surprised if you see a prince applying hair gel before setting out to rescue a princess, unless the latter is a kung-fu champion, that is! As for the dreadful Minotaur, Mila prefers to picture him as the Toupouloupou, a sweetie pie with a sweet tooth. And why do the wolves always have to be depicted as the bad guys? And, in her very personal adaptation of the Three Little Pigs, Mila swaps the awfully shy big bad wolf for an affable bull that… rocks!

My review-

         As a blog about being a surrogate it is tough for me to find reviews that I think are appropriate for my blog so when I come across child friendly reviews I am excited. The day that I got the DVD in the mail I put it in for my daughter as I was cooking supper, my daughter is a very energetic 3 year old. She was instantly interest in the movie and was excited to start watching it. On the menu screen you can play all or you can choose individual episodes to watch. Although we normally don't watch tv for long periods of time I click on play all so she could see all the episodes. I started to make supper and of course checked on my daughter in the mean time and she was glued to the tv, she loved it and was upset when I had to turn it off.
         I really enjoy that Missy Mila takes classic tales and tells it in her own way making cute and fun. Even as an adult I caught myself watching the show from time to time. I am not afraid to let my daughter watch her, as a parent it is very important that I find the right shows for my daughter to watch and to find one she actually watches is great! I recommend this for both parents and children.
