Veggie Tales: Princess and the Pop Star

Monday, August 1, 2011

It's a royal switcheroo! Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana. While Princess milks the cows and dreams of a life on stage, Vanna has her own dreams of a life far from the hectic pace of stardom that leaves her feeling alone and lonely. On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize they look almost exactly alike, which leads to the crazy notion that maybe they could switch lives! In a flash, the girls’ secret plan is launched and Princess is whisked to her new life as a pop star while Vanna gets to live her dream of a life away from the pressure of fame! As Princess tries to live up to the demands of being a diva and Vanna learns how to milk the cows, things don’t go as smoothly as they would like! As each girl realizes the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.

We always enjoy watching Veggie Tales in our home, I think this probably the kids favorite so far!  Savannah loves to sing as she's busy around the house or playing outside... I think she especially loved the similarity in the Vanna Banana's name compared to hers.

What a great way to relay the message to your kids that the grass may see greener on the other side of the fence... but everyone has their own difficulties to overcome.
