DVD Review: VeggieTales: Robin Good and his Not-So-Merry Men

A long time ago, in the faraway town of Bethlingham, roved a band of merry men, led by the fearless Robin Good. Their mission: to help people by fundraising from the rich and giving to the poor! But when a greedy Prince starts stealing the townspeople’s hams, donations are down and Robin’s friends take off and decide to give robbing from the rich a try. Feeling rejected, Robin thinks things can’t get any worse, until he finds out that the ham-hoarding Prince has also captured his friends. Can Robin overcome his own hurt, rescue his friends and restore the townspeople’s hope? Find out in this fun Veggie story where kids learn that there’s no hurt too big for God!

-Our Thoughts-

We completely love Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men. As a mother of two young children, I am always looking for great ways to share the love of God and to teach children important life character traits & values.

In this latest installment, the Veggie Tale characters share not one but two stories that demonstrate to children how to deal with their feelings if they are hurt or disappointed. I enjoyed the stories myself and quite liked that in the bonus features section, there is a Guide to Handling Hurt which gives suggestions, Biblical scripture verses, and opens the doors to discussing what may be going on in their life or if they see a friend that may be hurting.

As with all Veggie Tale movies, there’s lots of humor, the characters can be silly but also serious when called for. There’s many songs that are sung through out some super silly and others very meaningful. My daughter age 3 1/2 and son age 14 months enjoyed watching both the features and all the bonus content such as spotlighting children and their group leader doing what they could to raise water to build a well for children that didn’t have clean water.

Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men is about 50 minutes long. There are English and Spanish speaking options as well as wide or full screen for viewing. A great story with a Biblical message. This DVD does and excellent job in making clear that “There’s no hurt too big for God”. And really, “What more could you ask for?
