Dr Seuss bigger than ever!

Can you even imagine a huge.. and I do mean HUGE elephant floating in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade? For the first time ever, Horton, one of Dr Seuss's most beloved characters will be joining the ranks of some of America's favorite characters in the Macy's parade. It was a holiday tradition to watch that parade every year when I was growing up and sadly I haven't seen it in years but just the thought of that big elephant floating through the city will have me watching this Thanksgiving. I used to sit and wonder what it must be like for people in the tall buildings to see those big balloons floating by. This sneak peak picture really reminded me of that, could you imagine seeing Horton's big eye staring in at you if you were sitting by the window? heh.

Speaking of Horton the DVD release of his movie will be out soon, on Dec 9th to be exact. If your looking for a great Christmas gift for a Dr Seuss fan in the family or really any kid big and small in celebration of Dr Seuss's Horton Hears A Who release there will be a limited edition set that includes not only the movie but an adorable Horton plush as well. That's two gifts in one and you could always watch the movie now and put Horton in a stocking for Christmas or vice versa. Personally I'm not sure if I could resist waiting to see the movie that long as we missed it in the theater so I'm anxious to see it but I'd most certainly be putting our Horton plush in Connor's stocking. I have a feeling this set will be awfully popular so if you want one go place a preorder on Amazon!

In honor of Horton's place in this years Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade we will be giving away five really cool gift sets to five lucky readers. Each winner will receive their very own Horton Hears A Who limited edition set that includes the movie as well as the Horton plush and a set of their very own Horton Ears. Yep.. Horton Ears... heh.

Watch for the Horton Hears A Who review we will be doing here shortly too!

I like The Cat In the Hat Comes Back best. I love the Horton ears that come with this DVD. I just know kids would run to put those on every time they watched the movie. But they'd have to pull them off Mommy's head, I think.

I really, really liked Wacky Wednesday when I was a kid - It's a little different style because he co-wrote with someone else, but I always liked all the crazy stuff that happened.

Green Eggs and Ham and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas are favorites, but can't think of one that I really don't like!

her5boys said...

I Love Go Dog Go! There's one scene with all the dogs sleeping on the bed and one dogs peeps are wide open, then they all wake up and the awake one is sound asleep. Too cute!

Marigold said...

You know, I love them all. Particular stand-outs are "Oh The Places You'll Go," "Horton Hears a Who," and "The Lorax."
My oldest, Erin, was actually in a school production of Seussical the Musical, which is in part based on Horton's story. I'm sure she'd love to have a copy of the movie!

Definitely would be "Horton Hatches An Egg"! I cannot tell you how many times I have read this book to my son. We just love that lazy bird "Maize" who flies around having a good time and leaving poor Horton to sit on her egg. And the bird that hatches is so adorable! Yes, this is definitely the best Horton book in our family! :)
