Just in time for it's 60th Anniversary, Alice in Wonderland is the latest classic that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have digitally remastered and released on DVD and Blu Ray.
I was so excited to sit down and watch this with Miss5 after how much she loved Snow White.
So we put the twins down. Not literally. In the nap-time sense of 'put down'.
We grabbed some snacks, and sat down to watch it on the laptop. Because the DVD player is dead (R.I.P babysitter extraordinaire).
Miss5 went nuts over Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Although, that could be because she thought the characters were based on her father and uncle, as she has often heard me referring to them as Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Even Dumber.
Miss5 has now started referring to the twins as Tweedum and Tweedee, which she thinks is freaking hilarious. Each to their own, right?
What got me totally beside myself was the magical broom-toting dog.
I so need to get me one of these to run around after
me the kids.
Anyway, Miss5 is now on at me to celebrate un-birthday's. She can't quite work out addition and subtraction, but she is sound on the idea of celebrating 364 un-birthday's a year as opposed to one birthday. Typical.
So, after much laptop pulling and some seat-shoving for the best viewing position, I can safely say that - as with all the Disney classics - Alice in Wonderland has been a total hit in our house.
It is so amazing to be able to share with my own kids, the exact classics I watched as a child *not so long ago* *cough / choke / splutter*.
