Balloonatiks Review and Giveaway

I recently had an opportunity to review the "Balloonatiks: The Collectors" DVD. If you haven't heard of the Balloonatiks, let me tell you a little bit about them; AND how you can win a "Balloonatiks: The Collectors" DVD for yourself.

Who are the Balloonatiks?:
The Balloonatiks (Flator, Squeeker, Airbrain, Sparky, and Bouncer) are five ordinary teens that were mysteriously transformed into rubbery, shape-stretching super heroes who take on the evil-doers that dare to threaten Hot Air City.

What my son liked about the Balloonatiks:
When we first got the DVD my son saw the movie and wanted to watch it right away. The theme song that plays at the beginning of the movie had my kids up and dancing, I noticed that the voice sounded familar and learned that it is Ray Parker Jr. singing (the guy that sings the theme song to Ghostbusters). It was hilarious to see my son laughing during almost the entire DVD. Immediately after it ended he to watch it again.` Both cartoons are filled with off the wall zaniness, bizarre super villians, wild sight-gags and Over the top Heroics. We all enjoyed the Balloonatiks DVD and my only complaint is that I wish they had more movies!

Also for the older kids they can visit the Balloonatiks website which has information on all the characters, games, and even science experiements that kids can do at home. If you have kids this is a great site for them to look around and have some fun. They also have a store where you can purchase Balloonatiks gear, books and more.

What I liked about the Balloonatiks!:
They are fun! They have wacky sense of humors and each of the characters has a special ability, such as the ability to create static electricity. After visiting the Ballonatiks website (, we learned that each character also has a set of likes and dislikes which includes exercise, eating healthy, science and math (likes), and bullies, mean people, and people who are late. There's still enough "real" kids likes and dislikes to interest real kids – i.e. disliking being without pizza, homework and losing.

The characters are wonderfully drawn and animated in bright colors to appeal to younger kids; and the soundtrack and the adventures they get into will appeal to older kids.

Buy it:
You can purchase your own Balloonatiks: Collector's Set DVD on Amazon for $14.99.

Win it:
One of my readers will win their very own copy of the Balloonatiks: Collector's DVD set!
