The Jungle Book (Vol 1) – GIVEAWAY


In the jungle, the mighty jungle, something stirs tonight… and it will leave your children laughing. ABC has released its modern version of Ruddard Kiplings the Jungle book stories on DVD.


Jungle Book 1


New state of the art DVD animation brings the story of Mowgli, the man cub lost in the jungle to life. Enjoy his adventures as he explores the Seeone Indian Jungle with his four pawed friends such as Baloo the hysterical wise bear, Bagheera the loyal black panther and Mowgli’s (sometimes!) rock python mate, the mighty Kaa.

These are stories your children will want to watch over and over again.  It certainly kept my little ones quiet when the sunshine outside had turned to rain.

SRP Price: $19.95, 6 x 11 minutes episodes on 1 DVD


The generous people at Universal pictures have given me a copy of The Jungle Book – Season 1, to give away.

Disclaimer: No monetary compensation was given for this review. I did, however, receive a copy of this DVD to review. All opinions are my own or of my family, where applicable.


  1. Wow! The characters look different to the original version which I loved so much my primary school choir did excerpts from the musical one year! (The following year we did "Mary Poppins" and the year after that "The Wizard of Oz")

    The Wiggles are #1 with Older Grandson. Playschool is gaining in popularity too!

  2. Great twitter/facebook contest! If you don't mind, we will share this to our twitter followers. I'm sure all the mums out there would love to win the "The Jungle Book" for their young ones. :)

  3. My boys love Mr Maker, Lazy Town, Playschool....this could be a loooong list! LOL I'm sure they would love this too!

  4. My favourite little girl looove Play School - especially when they sing!

  5. I am not a Australian citizen so not participating in the give away. Jungle Book was the first movie i saw at the cinema. I think i was about 8. Cried my eyes out when Mowgli got lost and the vultures made fun of him. I can still sing along with most songs out of that movie LOL

  6. For me it was the book when growing up but for the children and grandchildren ABC's PlaySchool was No 1.

  7. Pocoyo. Annie just adores it!

  8. My 2 kiddies love giggle and hoot and loving the new Playschool.

  9. I haven't any children per se but a DH (ok, me too) we just gape like little kids at the amazing stories and neat children's shows from time to time...they are so pretty and thoughfully put together (some are better than others of course) but it is fun to be 5 again and enjoy the view.

  10. My children loved Play Scool and Sesame Street. When they were little there was not as many great kids shows as there are now.

  11. My two boys love watching Chuggington. It is the only time they do not move!

  12. Mine is a bit small yet for TV but the one thing that holds her attention if it's on is Pingu, which I also like :)

  13. (I want to win to send it to my friend's little boy :) )
