I was so excited to hear that Pinocchio was coming out on Blu-ray. This was one of my favorite movies growing up and I wanted to share it with our kids. I always would wish on a star before going to bed because of this movie. We are always looking for a reason to throw a party and what better way than having a Pinocchio moving watching party! We pulled out our blankets, popped some popcorn and were able to enjoy a fun family film.
As part of our movie night, we received a Pinocchio movie night kit to helps make the evening perfect. We received the Pinocchio Blu-ray (with Digital HD card to unlock the digital copy via Disney Movies Anywhere), Snack Bucket, Tablet Cover (so we could watch the digital copy on our tablet), Tablet Portable Charger, Wireless Headphones, 4 Lunchboxes, 4 Water Bottles and 1 Family Star Registration – personalized! I love that we have a digital copy on Disney Movies everywhere so we can watch Pinocchio on the go!
My kids were so excited to get our star deed with our very own star named after our family! How cool is this! Now every time my kids are wishing on a star they wonder if it is our family star that they are wishing on. This definitely makes the Pinocchio movie more special to use every time we watch it.
It is always fun being able to share movies of my childhood with my kids. We had so much fun watching the movie together. I recommend taking the time to watch the special features because they always add a great behind the scenes element to the movie. I always appreciate a movie more after learning about how it was made.
