A Review of Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men

Big Idea has done it again, putting  a new spin on the classic Robin Hood legend. Win a copy of Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men [3] this week.

When we first married, we didn’t own a tv. We mooched off our landlords who lived next door. When we had our first child, we didn’t own a tv. We just lived without it. But, somewhere after the birth of our second child and a move to the boondocks where there wasn’t much to do after dark, we decided that a tv might not be so bad.

Well, my mother-in-law decided to give us one. It was a small 14-inch screen with an attached video player. We had no movies to watch besides our wedding video, so Gramma Ruthie and I cruised down to the Christian book store and she bought us Lyle the Kindly Viking [4].

And we were hooked. Our kids have loved Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber for years. And we parents agree. While the remakes of Bible stories are not my favorite, I absolutely love the poetic license Big Idea has taken with historical and pop culture icons. Minnesota Cuke [5], Lyle the Kindly Viking, and The Lord of the Beans [6] appeal to this pun-loving family.

My littles (my 7 and under set) don’t have all the Veggie experience that my bigger kids do; our video player has since bit the dust. But, slowly they’re getting the chance to watch different Veggie Tales on DVD. Recently, we received a review copy of Robin Good and His Not-So-Merry Men.  [3]

A play on the Robin Hood legend, this story talks about sadness and hurt and how NO hurt is too big for God. It’s silly and fun and full of godly talking points. And it’s a mus-i-cal!

I had a great time watching this video with the kiddos this weekend. My younger children listen to these lessons of kindness and really take it to heart. I’m always amazed at the conversations that are sparked after they watch one of these videos.
