(My Friends Tigger & Pooh and Mickey’s Storybook Surprises were both provided to me by Special Ops Media for the purpose of this feature and giveaway.)

Join Pooh, Tigger, Darby and all your pals from the Hundred Acre Wood for this delightful treat full of fantas-terrific fun!

It’s fall, the time of year filled with surprises, and the gang needs YOU to use your super-sleuthing skills to answer a few tricky questions and solve some spooky-fun mysteries. Can Piglet’s friends help him overcome his fear of thunder and lightning by playing the Flashidy Freeze game? And when a piece of the moon “breaks off,” will Eeyore really take a rocket-ship trip to fix it?! There’s much more excitement in store, so get ready to laugh, play and sing along as you and your friends celebrate the harvest season and proudly proclaim, “This mystery is history!”

Yes, that says “Darby.” Christopher Robin is absent from this installment of the Winnie the Pooh franchise, which I find slightly blasphemous. It didn’t bother my 6-year-old Josiah, though, who enjoyed this DVD very much.

My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Hundred Acre Wood Haunt will be available on DVD on September 2nd. The DVD special features include a special Halloween episode of Handy Manny and the “Super Sleuth Fall Harvest Festival” game.

The only thing more fun than listening to a story is actually being part of it. So just say the magic words, “Meeska Mooska, Mickey Mouse” – and let the enchantment begin!

When Donald Duck turns into a frog after drinking Professor Von Drake’s new potion, only a kiss from Princess Daisy can change him back. But she’s locked away in the Tallest Tower! Will you help Mickey choose the right Mouseketools to rescue Daisy and de-frog Donald? There’s nonstop fun, excitement and new challenges around every corner as you help solve a Goldilocks-style mystery, wake Sleeping Minnie from a hundred-year-nap, outsmart pesky Pete on a race through the woods and more!

Let your imagination soar as you join Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and the whole Clubhouse gang of classic characters as they set off on amazing, music-filled storybook adventures inspired by your favorite fairy tales. No matter what your age, Mickey’s Storybook Surprises will make you believe in Mousekemagic!

We haven’t had time to watch this one yet, but Josiah loves the other Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD we have, so I’m sure it will be a hit, too.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Storybook Surprises will be available on DVD on September 2nd. The DVD special features include the “Tales from Toodles” Game.

Now, the fun part. I have one copy of each of these DVDs to give away to my readers. Here are the specifics:

1. Leave a comment on this post before 11:59 pm PST, Sunday, September 7th.

2. In your comment, please tell me which DVD is your first choice, which is your second choice.

3. On Monday, September 8th, I will use Random.org to generate two random numbers. If both winners prefer the same DVD, the first number chosen will get their first choice.

4. This giveaway is open to readers in the US and Canada only. (I’m paying shipping myself.)

5. Normally I say one comment per reader. However, this time I have a way for you to earn one more chance to win. Click over to my other blog, Books and Movies. Look around and find one book that I’ve reviewed that you would like to read, then come back here and tell me about it. Your comment must include a book that you saw me review at Books and Movies, or it won’t qualify for a second entry. While you’re there, you can also enter to win a copy of the novel Guernica.

Good luck!

  9. sara l.

    Thanks SO much for the “heads up” email about your giveaway! My little man is C-R-A-Z-Y about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse…He’s actually having a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party in October! And can’t wait!LOL! So, needless to say, MMC would be our first choice…But we’d defintely love Pooh, too! :) Off to check out your other blog! Thanks again!

  10. Jennifer Hill

    I think I would like to read Half-Assed. That sounds like a good read.

  11. sara l.

    “The Devil’s Arithmitic” looks like a book that I would enjoy! I really like that blog…I’m always on the hunt for another good read! Thanks!

  14. yessenia

    ooh this is so great i know two little kids who would really enjoy this! my first choice is the winnie the pooh dvd
    i think i would really enjoy reading the devil’s arithmetic i like reading anything having to do with the holocaust and anything well written : )

  15. Julie

    We would be happy with either one! My kiddos love them both!

  16. Cindi

    Greetings! What a fun giveaway prize drawing. Both DVDS sound adorable! I have always been a fan of “Winnie the Pooh.” I would love to win “My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Hundred Acre Wood Haunt”! Like you, I can’t believe that Christopher Robin isn’t included. One book that you reviewed that really sounds interesting to me is “The Devil’s Arithmetic!” One minute Hannah is trying to understand the number on her Grandpa’s arm and the next she is transported to 1942 and the Holocaust herself. I suppose that is one way; but a difficult one, to understand what all the fuss is about. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks, Cindi

  17. Nancy @ Homemade Blessings

    They both sound like fun, but my first choice would be Mickey Mouse – my 2 yr old loves Mickey!

    For a book pick, somehow I missed reading The Devil’s Arithmetic when I was younger. I remember other classes reading it, but somehow mine never did.

  58. Erin

    My kids love Mickey Mouse, so Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Storybook Surprises would be perfect for them.
