The Gummy Bear song is one of those catchy tunes that you can't get out of your head. My 3 year old loves the song so when we received The Yummy Gummy Search for Santa DVD from Lionsgate, I anticipated that it would be a real winner (especially as we also received a super cool Jelly Mould with it which Freddy loved!)
This is the first time that internet sensation Gummy Bear has starred in a film and it is a non-stop dose of colourful, zany festive fun featuring plenty of laughs, music and dancing.
The story features Gummy Bear on a mission to find Santa and save Christmas for all the children in the world. Assisted by his equally whacky and quirky friends Vam Piro, Kala and Harry, they head to the North Pole in a madcap search of Santa. On their adventures they meet a strange dance-crazed alien which adds to their problems! It's all a bit bonkers...Gummy is a Y-Front wearing, dummy sucking, green bear! But this craziness held Freddy utterly captivated and he has watched it over and over. The film is filled with songs and dancing. Fred can now sing a lot of the songs (which are very Euro-pop influenced and are very catchy). It makes him giggle (especially the bit with the alien on the dance mat!!) and anything that makes the kids happy gets a thumbs up from me!
Music videos are included in the DVD extras so you can sing and dance to I am a Gummy Bear whenever the mood takes you!
Gummy Bear has also influenced us in a culinary way as we made our own lime green Gummy Bear jelly using the mould that we were sent. Freddy loved making the jelly and filling the mould. Unfortunately in his eagerness to see if the jelly was set, he dropped it upside down on the kitchen floor. We scooped it up and put it back into the mould, but the slightly gritty, under set jelly was never quite the same again!! But, much like this Gummy Bear film, it made us laugh!!
Gummy Bear's all singing and dancing film: The Yummy Gummy Search For Santa is currently on sale at Amazon for just £6.00. It'll make a great stocking filler for young children and bring plenty of slightly crazy Christmas cheer to the festive season.
