Disney's The Search For Santa Paws DVD Review ~ Available Now!

Posted by Jenna | Wednesday, November 24, 2010

With Christmas just around the corner, we have found that the stores are getting ready for the holidays. Christmas trees line the aisles and holiday shoppers are finishing up their shopping. Kaelyn has begun to notice all the decorations and asks almost daily when we can put up our Christmas tree. We have already started watching holiday movies and listening to Christmas music. I just love this time of year!

We were especially excited when we learned we were going to have the opportunity to review The Search For Santa Paws DVD, which just released yesterday!

From the Press Release:

The film follows in the tradition of Disney's classic holiday tales with a heartwarming story about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. An exciting prequel, the movie allows kids of all ages to discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began – as it is the inspiring original film (in a timeline it precedes 2009's Santa Buddies: The Legend of Santa Paws).

In the movie, when Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it's up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn ("America's Got Talent"'s Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan's Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about. Do you believe in Santa Paws? Experiencing this sure-to-be holiday classic, full of fun, adventure and a carrying the timeless messages of the holidays, with surely delight the entire family!

The Search For Santa Paws is an exciting and uplifting movie that reveals how the legendary relationship between Santa Claus and Santa Paws came to be. I had a feeling this heartwarming movie would be a hit with Kaelyn, but had no idea how much our whole family would enjoy it. It is absolutely adorable! I am not one that enjoys watching movies over and over again...but this one is different. The kids and I have enjoyed it several times already. It's truly a movie the whole family can enjoy watching together.

Kaelyn especially loves the music, as well as the little girls in the orphanage. Of course, the talking dogs and Santa Claus always bring a smile to her face as well. Every time she watches it, she's glued from beginning to end. She follows the story very closely and as with all of us, is curious what will happen next.

We have also enjoyed the bonus features included:
• An interactive Animated Pop-Up Book – 'Buddies' puppy star Rosebud reads a holiday story featuring new canine friends from The Search For Santa Paws
• Sing-Along Mode - colorful lyrics added to the film's song sequences, so audiences can sing along to the film's fantastic new songs.
• Music Video – tween favorite Debby Ryan (Disney Channel's Suite Life on Deck) performs a great new arrangement of 'Deck The Halls.'
• Deleted scenes

I would highly recommend checking this movie out if you haven't already. It's a great movie you can watch as a family, reminding those who watch it about the importance of love and friendship. It's very uplifting and perfect for this time of year.
