{Review + Giveaway} The Muppets

I am filled with memories of the Muppets from my childhood, of Kermit and Miss Piggy and the gang. I will admit to loving Kermit, he is my favourite through and through. I know, he is the obvious choice and there are so many to choose from, but his sweet little heart has won me over from the get go. Fozzie Bear comes in second for me.



I have tried to get the kids interested in the Muppets for the last few years, but they always seem to get bored with them. So when I was sent the Muppets to review I thought it would be the same deal. But I was suprised that they actually sat through the whole movie, whilst I was the one getting bored...

I don't know what it is but when I watch a movie with Jason Segel I always just view him as Marshall from How I Met Your Mother... even when he starred in I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd. He was still Marshall to me!

Anyhow Caden and Mahli both told me they liked it and have watched it twice now. Caden said he likes it best when they since and that the frog is his favourite.
Mahli liked the singing the best too and her favourite is Miss Piggy.

If you have no idea what this new The Muppets movie is all about is it a reunion show of sorts after they all band together to try and save the theatre from a greedy oil tycoon. But will they be able to raise enough money and save The Muppet Theatre in time??
