This past half term there were quite a few activities lined up.
Of course, on the 31st, we had to celebrate Halloween. Since we had decorated the house and the children demanded a spooky dinner, we also decided to sit down and watch the new Scooby-Doo movie – The Mystery Map!
We are all familiar with Scooby-Doo but this was slightly different. This was in a puppet format and was pretty nice. I am not a big fan of Scooby-Doo but the children love the programme, so they were pretty excited to receive the DVD.
Scooby-Doo! Adventures The Mystery Map DVD sees new-look Scooby and the gang embark on a mad, pizza-fuelled dash to find pirate Gnarlybeard’s hidden treasure.
Confronting more than a few chilling obstacles along the way, watch as the slobbering-sleuth and his band of crime-busting puppet pals sniff out the clues, only to have the map stolen by the frightening Phantom Parrot. Ruh-roh!
The gang must track down the mysterious bird to recover the map if they ever want to reach the spooky ship. But, once on-board, what will Gnarlybeard be willing to do to protect his booty?
The children were quite taken with the movie and I heard a lot of giggles and laughs. They also sat and watched it through so that meant that I could sit down and do some uninterrupted blogging (a rare treat!)
It is not so scary as it is funny but then most Scooby-Doo adventures are. It is 43 minutes so it is short enough to hold a little one’s attention and does not get boring for them.
The DVD is available and I think it would make a great stocking filler or an add on Christmas present for a child.
Disclosure: We received this DVD for review. All ideas and opinions are my own.
