A&W are so excited about Christmas so when I received Santa Paws in the mail they were practically trembling with excitement to watch this one. Who can resist the cover?? A snowy scene. Adorable puppies. SANTA!! A&W were sold immediately. We hunkered down that very afternoon to watch and I will say that my four year olds sat transfixed for the entire movie. I think A&W particularly liked the scenes with Paws....between him talking and the adorableness they could not get enough. I will say that one of my sons tends to get a bit emotional in movies (we call it having empathy!!) and he told me a few times he was "getting a little empathy". There are just a few spots where more sensitive children might get a bit emotional (for us it was when Quinn the orphan sang "Who Will Sing To Me", scenes with the "mean lady" at the orphanage and (without giving too much of the plot away!) some scenes near the end where it was unclear (at least to "W") if there would be a happy ending.
Despite the "empathy" parts, the movie delighted A&W and mom too. The special effects were, as you come to expect from Disney, magical. I felt that Santa was very convincing and that the dogs actually looked as if they were speaking...nicely done!! On top of being big fans of the movie A&W were really into the bonus features as well which include a music video (by Disney Star Debby Ryan which is super fun), an adorable pop-up story and more. A&W are particularly into the pop-up story which is really neat....it is in the fashion of a pop-up book and the graphics are really amazing. We have watched that story several times (it also has a "bad guy" which in my house is a must these days!).
