Continuing on with my best holiday gift picks, this week I bring you pick #2, however I’m cheating a little and it’s actually three great Christmas gifts that could easily be bundled together for the little ones in your life!
It’s Peanuts-mania! On the heels of the release of the new Peanuts Movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas stamps currently on sale at the USPS, and of course the Peanuts appearance scheduled for the Macy’s Parade on Thanksgiving Day, a brand new 50th Anniversary gift pack for A Charlie Brown Christmas has just hit stores. This deluxe package is exclusive to Walmart and consists of 2 CDs (A Charlie Brown Christmas and Peanuts Portraits), a reproduction of the 1965 book A Charlie Brown Christmas, plus 4 double-sided postcards featuring Peanuts characters – AND it’s currently being sold for just $19.88 at Walmart stores!
Additionally, I just love the “Snoopy Doghouse Edition” of the multi-platinum selling Yuletide classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, one of the most popular and beloved holiday albums of all-time! The remastered CD includes 3 bonus tracks that did not appear on the original 1965 LP plus a 20-page booklet filled with iconic images from the program and in-depth liner notes by Guaraldi historian Derrick Bang. This special deluxe package for A Charlie Brown Christmas comes with the CD housed in a customized sleeve that folds out to form a replica of Snoopy’s colorfully decorated domicile and comes with cut-outs of the Peanuts gang – Linus, Lucy, Snoopy, and Charlie Brown himself – with stands for each figure, which is currently available on Amazon for under $10!
And to round out the best loved children’s’ music classic picks, Raffi has a brand new CD coming out on January 15, 2016 called Owl Singalong. Get ahead of the action and pre-order on iTunes and Amazon! Owl Singalong features 16 new songs incorporating a range of styles and a variety of instruments including strings, horns and ukulele.
Currently two songs from the upcoming 16-song album are available for download – the title track “Owl Singalong” which was inspired by the owls near Raffi’s home on Salt Spring Island in Canada, and “Green Dream,” a joyous, hopeful anthem he hopes will inspire all the world’s children and families. An adorable animated video for the title track is available for viewing now at http://yhoo.it/1GYVUeX.
And since I am in the holiday spirit, how about a chance to win one of each of these items? Enter below and good luck!
