We are having a VeggieTales® Release Party! (And you can win an HP Digital Camera and Printer Dock)

lessonsfromthesockdrawer.jpgFrom the first moment Bob and Larry hopped their way into America’s living rooms, getting kids to have a healthy dose of “veggies” has been just plain easy. These veggies are fun!

And with their clever plots and witty banter, adults can actually enjoy the show right along with their kids. It is win win for everyone involved.

So whenever a new VeggieTales® movie is released, my son’s (and my) ears perk up. You simply can’t go wrong with VeggieTales®.

“Lessons from the Sock Drawer” is the newest release in the VeggieTales® series. Bob and Larry kick off these silly shorts by digging into a dresser full of socks, which is also known as Larry’s “Veggie Vault”. The kids get to hang out with a story-telling donkey and a sock puppet while learning some valuable lessons.

When the screener arrived for me to review, I popped it in the player to watch with my son Jackson, our resident VeggieTales® expert. Of course he loved it (did I have any doubts?) When I asked him if he would recommend it to other kids, he exclaimed, “Oh YEAH! I would recommend it for ALL ages”. (So there you have it – straight from the six year old expert.)

When Edmund’s pet hamster disappears after he accidentally leaves the top off its cage, he writes to Bob & Larry asking for advice. While Bob feels like there’s no lesson to teach Edmund – after all, it was an accident – Larry feels quite the opposite! He has just the right stories with just the right lessons tucked away in The Veggie Vault!

veggie_filmstrip.jpgFilled with hilarious video segments and music, “Lessons from the Sock Drawer” has 15 irresistible shorts together on one DVD for the very first time. Includes favorite Veggie moments, like “Dr. Jiggle and Mr. Sly,” “Larry’s Lagoon,” “Omelet,” “Going Up,” “The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill,” and many more. Each story is woven together with new video clips, and as an extra special bonus, you’ll find segments from the VeggieTales TV show that have never been seen on DVD before now.

And to make this VeggieTales® DVD release party even more fun – we have a fabulous contest for you to enter!

hp-camera-printer.jpgNot only are we giving away the new “Lessons from the Sock Drawer” DVD, but one of our readers will win our GRAND PRIZE — an HP Photosmart A446 Digital Camera and Printer Dock, extra ink and a package of photo paper, as well as a copy of the VeggieTales® newest DVD release, “Lessons from the Sock Drawer”.

In addition to our grand prize winner, we will also have four runners-up who will win a copy of the “Lessons from the Sock Drawer” DVD.

To enter leave a comment at this post and we will announce the winners on May 30th. (This contest is open to US AND Canadian shipping addresses.)

And, for some extra fun, here are some free VeggieTales® coloring sheets for your kids.

  2. Valerie says

    Oh, please pick me! This would be so fun to win for my three-year-old son! Thanks for hosting such great giveaways. :)

  3. Amber says

    We LOVE the Veggies around here. All three of the boys love them. The camera and printer would be so awesome with a new baby on the way!

  4. Angela says

    Oh my word we love us some good veggies over here. I can’t tell you how much fun we’ve had with the new pirates movie.

  5. Stephanie V says

    Wow – fingers crossed. Our digital camera is horrible and I feel like we are missing precious moments of our baby boy’s life.

  6. Stefanie says

    My son loves listening to the Veggie Tales cd I bought, so I’m sure the dvd would be a big hit!

  7. Martha says

    We always welcome a new Veggie Tale video in our house!!! I’m lusting after photo printers these days too. We have a B and W laser we love, but I’m ready for some color in my life! :)

  8. says

    No. WAY. My son would LOVE this new movie! And I so totally need a new camera. Mine is dying a slow horrible death. The printer would be lovely too, as my printer keeps printing in chunks with lines on photo paper. Not cool!!

  9. gS49 says

    Great prize.

    A question about VeggieTales–If Bambi makes kids reluctant to eat venison, does watching this series make them not want to eat carrots etc.

    Or can anyone tell the difference?

  10. says

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, pick me! I don’t currently have any camera and I’m missing out on precious photo opportunities. I would love to win. (And my kids would love the dvd.)

  11. grubmama says

    My son loves Veggie Tales, actually he is addicted. No joke, he asks me every hour or so if he can watch “Bob”! And I love to take pictures of my buys (but can never manage to print them off) so this would be a great prize!

  37. Steph Elias says

    What a great digital camera! We could really use a new one. This new VeggieTales DVD looks cute, my kids would probably really like it.

  38. valerie phillips says

    A digital camera and printer, plus a video, how cool, I don’t have a digital so that would be nice, no more throw away cameras for me.

  58. Dana Eckstrom says

    My son loves “Veggie Tales”..but ya know..dislikes veggies.. GO figure. ((Please enter me))

  59. jeanne says

    The HP printer is great. I had one when they first came out. It did a great job back then so with updating it has to be superior.

  60. geekbearinggifts says

    What a great prize package! Our camera bit the dust when it slid out of a bag DH was carrying last year, and we don’t have this DVD yet. Thanks for the offer!

  61. Sheree Warner says

    My 1 1/2 yo grandson doesn’t like to watch TV but he seems to be amazed with Veggie Tales. I would love to use the new camera and take pics of him watching the new Veggie Tale! I would send you a copy! Thank you for the generous giveaway!

  62. Celeste Campbell says

    This is ONE GREAT CAMERA! Puts to shame the “state of the art” digital camera I purchased in 2001!

  63. Jill L says

    My whole family loves to sing along to the Veggie Tales, and what the heck, I would love a new camera!!!

  64. Michelle says

    Does the new video have any songs as funny as the “bellybutton” song. That was my 9 year olds favorite when she was little. Now my 2 year old daughter is watching and I expect 8 month old baby bro won’t be far behind. Thank goodness for cartoons with a moral to the story!!

  65. Ann says

    How cool would it be to win this for Mother’s Day? Good luck to all of you out there. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  66. Teresa says

    AWESOME!!! We love Veggie Tales around my house and I would love the mommy present from HP!!! Thanks for another great contest!

  67. LG Efron says

    Great prize. I like the concept of ‘Veggie Tales’ and it’s honorable to try to get kids into the idea of veggies being fun and all… but has anyone actually watched the show?!

  68. Jacqueline Carpenter says

    Wow! This is a great contest and I would die to win this.I want to win soooooo bad.Thanks.

  69. says

    This would be awesome!!! I could really use a digial camera. The one I borrow from work doesn’t even hold a charge anymore.

  70. Kathy Mullins says

    As a graduating graphic design student, I could use a new digital camera.

    Great prizes!

    Happy Mother’s Day to all

  71. says

    Veggie Tales! Veggie Tales! We are veggie-holics at this house, but who isn’t?! Everyone loves those Bible knowing veggies!

    I would love to win! Great Contest!

  72. Ruth Bousquet says

    It will be a truly Happy Mother’s Day to the mother who wins this excellent and useful prize.

  73. Ivelisse Jimenez says

    My daughter and I enjoy watching Veggietales together because of their lessons and fun songs. What a great giveaway for anyone to receive. Good luck to all.

  74. Bill Bartholmey says

    Our kids grew up watching Vegetales! I think we have them all. You’re never too old for Vegetales. And, my wife Mary is the only one in the family who doesn’t own a digital camera. She really deserves one. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!

  75. Ilissa H. says

    This is a great giveaway. Veggie Tales are great and I could really use a photo printer. Thank you so much for the chance.

  76. says

    my camera died a few weeks ago and I am sad to say that I am missing all those special moments that my girls are doing. Just yesterday I was camera less when my 5 year old lost her 4th tooth. Sadly we just moved and I just don’t have the money to go and buy a new camera. *tear* please enter me. I really do need a new camera. Everyone knows how important it is to capture every little moment in your children’s life.

    thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  77. Alecia Gibson says

    I don’t have any kids but I could really use that digital camera. I’ve never owned a camera before. When I go on vacations I usually buy a disposable camera and it ends up getting lost or the pics never turn out.

  78. Susan Chester says

    I recently saw VeggieTales for the first time. I really enjoyed it and so did my grandaughter. Great Prize!

  79. Michelle Jadaa says

    ooh great gifts for the kid and the mums!That would be nice.
    Hubby says all holidays were created by hallmark to sell cards so i don’t get anything here.Please make my day!

  80. Rebecca Wetzel says

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win this. Your web page looks cool, was happy to stumble upon this contst. Keep up the good work

  81. Amy says

    I love the message that Veggie Tales sends. It is something I don’t mind watching with my two kids.

  82. Casey H says

    I am so desprate for a new camera so I can get good pictures of my new baby coming in august!! Please enter me!!

  83. Judith Hopkins says

    This would definitely be a prayer wish that came true. My camera is old and has only 3.0 mega pixels, doesn’t take very good pictures!

  84. Lydia Stufft says

    Veggie Tales are always a sweet slice of childhood. Perhaps the denizens of the sock drawer could provide guidance in finding my one missing red sport sock.

  85. Heather Turner says

    My son would love this! We could give this to him as a “big brother” present when our daughter is born in August! We could use the digital camera to take pictures of him and our upcoming arrival! It would be great to win this!

  86. says

    I could just say that my kids love Veggie Tales, but the reality is I was in love w/ Veggie Tales long before I had kids LOL. Count me in!

  87. charline s says

    Veggie tales are great. The kids love to watch them and they are learning something from each video too. It is great to find something that is fun and good for the kids.

  88. Rhonda says

    My husband and I loved the Veggie Tales long before our little one came along. Larry the Cucumber is our favorite. They are such fun characters with great messages.

  89. kristyn says

    I dropped my son’s camera in the water last summer during a canoe trip when a wave came and flipped us! I would love this for him!

  90. says

    Oh nooooo…at the mention of Veggie Tales, I now have “Oh where is my hairbrush” stuck on a repeating loop in my mind. I hate earworms – but I love VeggieTales. Count me in on this fabulous giveaway. Have a great day y’all!

  91. Craig Hinchey says

    Veggie Tales are wonderfully whimsical tales suitable for children up to ten years old ( and adults too). Tales from the sock drawyer should be delightful. and I’m hoping that Veggie Tales will inspire more children’s authors to write likewise tales!

  92. Cathy123 says

    MY HUSBAND LOOKS JUST LIKES LARRY, SO OUR KIDS LOVE VEGGIE TALES! IF I WIN THE CAMERA, I’LL SEND YOU A DIGITAL PHOTO OF HIM AND YOU CAN ALL SEE THE RESEMBLANCE!

    THANKS FOR A GREAT CONTEST!

  93. Joyce Poyton says

    What a fun party! Count me in. I love VeggieTales. They are cute and adorable for everyone.

  94. Cliff P says

    It’d be great to win this camera. I don’t own a digital camera and I’d love to have one to take pictures to send via email.
