Recently I was sent a DVD copy of Balloonatiks : The Collector's Set to review so when it came in the mail I gathered up all the kids and we set out on our mission! My youngest (18 months) thought it was hysterical for some reason, loved all the colors and action, kept pointing to the screen and laughing, it was super cute!
As for my oldest two (8 yrs & 4 yrs) they really enjoyed it too! It was able to hold their attention the entire time which is an accomplishment because they often become bored or uninterested with a lot of movies and leave to go play before its half way done, but not this time! They actually didn't make a peep (except when laughing) and really seemed to be entertained by the Balloonatiks and all their antics and adventures! The episodes are exciting and pretty fast paced so that helps to keep the kiddos focused.
Please take a moment to visit the website and check out the Balloonatiks for yourself @ www.Balloonatiks.com Introduce your kids to the Balloonatiks characters : Floater, Squeeker, Airbrain, Sparky, Bouncer and Leaky, 5 teens mysteriously transformed into rubbery shape stretching (think BALLOONS!) super heroes that take on the villains that threaten Hot Air City!
Some tidbits of info that I personally found interesting (on the grown up side of the fence!) is that actor Mark Hamill & Debi Derryberry (the voice of Jimmy Neutron), and Billy West (best known for several characters from Futurama) worked on the collectors set DVD. Also the Balloonatiks theme song is performed by Ray Parker Jr., who is most known for writing the Ghostbusters theme song (man I used to love those movies when I was younger!).
Balloonatiks : The Collector's Set will be available for purchase on Amazon.com, NetFlix.com and Walmart.com and is set to release on July, 15th and so far has a suggested retail price of 14.95.
