Goosebumps on DVD

Posted by on October 8, 2010

I vaguely remember the Goosebumps books and the TV show from well before I had kids but I was pretty unfamiliar with them until recently when I received two DVD’s to review.

We got “Go Eat Worms” and “The Blob That Ate Everyone” and upon opening the envelope, my kids, ages ten and five, were chomping at the bit to watch them (there are three episodes on each DVD).

As soon as we had one opened, they immediately popped it in the DVD player and started watching. I was a little concerned that they would be too scary for my five year old but he insisted that he knew it was just pretend so I sat and watched both DVD’s with them and they were completely glued to the TV the entire time. Since then, we’ve probably watched both DVD’s five more times and even I enjoyed watching them.

From an adult point of view, the stories are mildly scary and not too graphically gruesome but the suggested age for these DVD’s is 8-12 years old so I recommend watching them first to decide if your younger kids are ready for them.

The Verdict: Goosebumps on DVD were a huge hit with my kids and I plan on getting them some more episodes for Christmas.
