The Jungle Bunch – Review & Giveaway!

I’ll admit that I’ve never heard of the Jungle Bunch, and quite frankly I think these are the weirdest looking jungle creatures I’ve ever seen, and as for the story line… well there is a message there, somewhere.

However I am not the target audience for this movie.  My little target audience loved it and watch it on a loop.  My daughter now wants a toy tiger penguin (and if anyone happens to see one let me know would you?).   Overall the movie is a fit for most kids 10 and under, although I have caught my tween putting it on a couple of times now ;)  Great rainy day viewing.

About the movie:  The Jungle Bunch movie is the story of how a penguin’s egg fell off an Antarctic ice floe and ended up in the jungle.  Maurice (the hatched penguin) is adopted and raised by an affectionate tigress, and is actually convinced that he is also a tiger. His time is divided between re-painting his stripes, hunting and teaching his own adopted son, Junior the Tiger Fish, his special hunting techniques.  Two penguins from Maurice’s native Antarctic village, are in search of “The Great Tiger Warrior” to save their village from an oppressive group of walruses.  Their search leads them to Maurice’s jungle home, where they tell him of their plight. Determined to help, Maurice, and his team of misfit friends embark on an adventure they will never forget!

We received a copy of The Jungle Bunch from Universal Studios Home Entertainment to review for this post, and thanks to them I have a bundle of movies to giveaway!   Including copy of The Jungle Bunch, Lego Ninjago, Zhu Zhu Pets Quest for Zhu and Nims Island.

To win please comment below to go into the draw, tell me what your favourite childhood movie was?  Mine was, and still is the Dark Crystal. I will draw in one week, sorry Australian entries only.   Don’t forget to leave a valid email address (that won’t be made public here) so I can contact to you, and no I never send spam.

    The Jungle Book (1994) with Jason Scott Lee..That was the first movie that I ever cried in when I was a child,still remember it to this day that is how much it upset me (the part in the movie where I thought the bear had died) turned out he was ok =D..Really good childhood movie!

    Well I think it would have been Dr Dolittle. Yep I was old, old school. But once I saw the Labrynith, when I was 12, I fell in love with that. I still love them both to this day. One reminds me of my nana, the other my mum. Hugs.
