Our Review

I didn’t watch this myself, but I let the boys watch it on Monday since all the kids were sick as dogs. They were curled up on their bean bag chairs quiet as mouses watching this DVD from beginning to end. They loved every episode. I asked them about halfway through if they had enough of watching this DVD yet, and they all said, “NO!” really quick. They even begged to watch it again after it was over with.

I’m sure your little TMNT lover will enjoy this new DVD that has been added to the series.

Do you have a TMNT lover in your home?

    • To think, I was late in posting this post. I had planned on having it live earlier in the day. I almost forgot to put it up. 🙁 I see now it’s a good thing I listen to the voice in my head. lol

  1. As a tomboy growing up Ninja turtles was one of my favorites along with power rangers, pokemon and yu-gi-oh, so I am so skeptical towards new generation versions of my childhood favorites but I will check it out.

    • My kids love it. I don’t see very many changes in it myself, but it’s also been so long since I watched them that I don’t remember a whole lot.
