As Promised....Theo DVD Review and DOUBLE Giveaway!

This is Theo....

Check out the quality of this animated Biblical DVD/teaching tool.  It's really good!  The creator, Michael Joens, has worked on many big name projects in the past, including 'The Adventures of Odyssey'.   Oh, and 'My Little Pony'! (I had to mention that one. You can read all about Michael Joens here.)

Having created the Theo character back in 1978, he had to wait more than 30 years for everything to fall into place before he could bring Theo to life.   And now he and Whitestone Media bring you "Theo Presents", a series of animated videos dedicated to teaching young children all about God's Word.

I was given a copy of episode one:  'Saving Faith', along with a bonus... 'Good News'.  Included in the DVD pack was a special teabag....what a nice surprise!  You can see a clip of 'Saving Faith' here and you can also download 'Good News' free!  Check out the quality---you will enjoy introducing your children to Theo and his friends.

I sat with my youngest son and watched the DVD a couple of times.  He is definitely an animation lover.  The animated characters grabbed his attention immediately.  I'm sure we will be watching Theo together many times.
If you know what I mean...  And you probably do if you have kids who watch animated shows.  Over and over and over....

The quality is amazing, the concept is admirable, and the message is spot on.  Two thumbs up for Theo!

And here's something else that I thought was really awesome....   

The Buy 1 - Give 1 campaign!
For every Theo DVD purchased, Whitestone Media and Child Evangelism Fellowship® will send a child in need their very own copy of Theo. You can log onto TheoPresents.com after making your own purchase, and select the region of the world you'd like another copy of Theo to be sent.
Plus....wouldn't  Theo be great for Sunday School?   Lifeway seems to agree...check out the Theo Sunday School curriculum here.

Theo just came out last week.  In conjunction with the new release, (and thanks to the Propeller Group) I have not one, but TWO copies of 'Saving Faith'/'Good News' to giveaway!
