Theo Review and Giveaway!


Good, wholesome, and Biblical programing for children is so hard to find these days.  Funny Bunny and I really do not watch any TV during the day and I would personally rather just pop in a pre-approved movie than scan through what may be showing on the various "family" channels. 

So as I am always excited to learn more about Christian programming, I was happy to receive a copy of the sample DVD Introducing Theo: Teaching Children God's Word.  This DVD contains two episodes: Saving Faith and Good News. 

From the publisher:

Theo Presents is centered around the adventures and teachings of the main character, Theo, a student of Godʼs Word. Theo lives in a cozy corner of a quaint English village, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and entertains many guests, including two mice, Belfry and Luther.

The animation series of Theo guides children and adults through a careful study of systematic theology. Theo discusses doctrines about sin, Godʼs character, the Bible, salvation and godly living with easy-to-understand illustrations that make children want to learn more about the Christian faith.

My Thoughts:  I enjoyed the two short episodes we watched and I liked that they each teach from the Bible.

Thoughts of an 8-Year Old: I like Theo's teaching and think his videos are a good way to learn the Bible and laugh, too. I enjoyed them!

Find Out More:  You can find out more about Theo by visiting Theo Presents online.  Theo: God's Love is available for purchase for only $14.99.  It includes Episode 1: Saving Faith, Episode 2: Loving Obedience, Episode 3: Forgiveness, Bonus Episode: Good News, and Special Features: Animation Basics and A Chat with Mike Joens, the Creator of Theo. 

You can also visit Theo on Facebook, Twitter, and on Amazon (where the DVD can be purchased for just $12.49).  And there is a FREE App you can download for games, activity pages, coloring pages, notes on the episodes, and a chance to watch upcoming episodes.

They have also partnered with Lifeway Christian resources in creating curriculum to compliment their Theo series, which you can find more information on here

I love Christian programming and anything with "loving obedience" being taught to my kids in a way where they don't even realize they are learning is fabulous! This is not actually an entry because I am Canadian :( but just wanted to say that thanks because I've never heard of this but will be checking it out because of your review.

I'd like to win to be able to share this with my niece and nephew. Sharing God's plan of salvation in a way kids can understand is great! cwitherstine at zoominternet dot net

I think these videos sound fabulous. I am always looking for good Christian videos that aren't watered down and sanitized. After visiting the website, I think the "Buy one, Give one" program is really neat.
