My Thoughts

My family fell in love with this story many years ago and to see it as a move made us love it more. The 3D version is amazing!!! I am now a fan of the big 3D TV my husband got with all these 3D movies coming out! The Lorax is vibrantly colored and the 3D aspect makes everything pop close enough to reach out and touch if you could. The story is a good one to teach our children and I made sure my kids knew what the morale of the story was. The new Mini-Movies are fun and I could totally watch them as their own movies as these characters are fun! My toddler and I love the karaoke version of the “Let It Grow” song which we both know very well now after watching the movie every day for the last week ;)

The Lorax is a great family movie and we all highly recommend adding it to your Blu-ray/DVD collection!
