Rise of the Guardians Movie Review
My son loves a good movie so for the holidays I like to include a new movie he hasn’t seen. Rise of the Guardians would be a great choice for any Easter basket. I was thrilled get the chance to review this movie.

Really? What is not to love about a movie that includes the Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. 3 of my favorite people! First off I got this amazing package that included a reusable shopping bag, watering can, color your own pot and seeds, candy, night light, bunny ears, and of course the movie with 2 hopping eggs. My son sleeps with the night light every night.
By now he has watched the movie at least 10 time. The first 3 times were the day we got it. I told ya he loves a good movie. Cooper is big into super heroes so this movie, weather your kids believe in these characters or not, were super heroes to him. He root for the Guardians in the face of chaos and fear. This really is a great movie for family night and any Easter basket.
