Gigi's Big Break DVD by Thomas Nelson

Title:  Gigi's Big Break  (Gigi, God's Little Princess series)
Author:  Sheila Walsh
Format:  children's DVD
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson

Gigi, God's Little Princess, is a delightful animated little girl who learns lessons about life, God, and family in each book or movie.  In Gigi's Big Break, Gigi learns what God has to say about honesty and about becoming a big sister.  This DVD features two 30 minute animated movies, as well as bonus features.  This DVD is intended for girls age 3 - 8 years old.

My 4 year old loves Gigi!  She enjoys learning about being God's Little Princess along with Gigi.   The Gigi movies are refreshing, charming, and utterly feminine -- Gigi's Big Break is no exception.  We first discovered Gigi when my 10 year old was young enough to still enjoy them.  My 4 year old has grown up with the series, and always looks forward to receiving a new one.   She loves being a Princess, alongside Gigi.

Gigi's Big Break begins with "The White Lie" which really turns into more of a whopper than a little white lie.  Gigi discovers how lies continue to build until they are totally out of control.  Gigi also learns about God's forgiveness and how much better it is to be honest, even if we are in trouble.

The second movie on Gigi's Big Break is "The Pink Surprise", where Gigi learns she's going to be a big sister.  As usual, Gigi's imagination runs away with her and she develops misunderstandings about what a new baby will mean for her family.  Gigi's parents help her understand what the coming changes will really mean for her.

The animation of the Gigi movies are somewhat simplified, but that doesn't detract from their charm, or the stories.  It also helps to keep the cost of the movies affordable.  We definitely recommend Gigi's Big Break, and all the Gigi products, to Christian families with young girls.
