VeggieTales Presents:
A Story of Trading Places
A Lesson in Being Yourself

Princess Poppyseed’s life on her family’s farm is far from the glamorous world of her favorite pop singer Vanna Banana.  While Princess milks the cows and dreams of a life on stage, Vanna has her own dreams of a life far from the hectic pace of stardom that leaves her feeling alone and lonely.  On a chance meeting at a playground, Vanna and Princess cross paths and realize they look almost exactly alike, which leads to the crazy notion that maybe they could switch lives!  In a flash, the girls’ secret plan is launched and Princess is whisked to her new life as a pop star while Vanna gets to live her dream of a life away from the pressure of fame!  As Princess tries to live up to the demands of being a diva and Vanna learns how to milk the cows, things don’t go as smoothly as they would like!  As each girl realizes the life they longed for doesn’t fulfill all their dreams, they learn that the life God gave them is the one for which they were uniquely and lovingly designed.

I watched this movie with our daughter and you should watch it with yours too.  The lesson of God’s special love for each one of us and that we are all different because God made us that way, was a great reminder for her and I.  It is natural for us to want someone elses life because it looks easier, or they drive better cars, or wear nicer clothes and beautiful homes.  But, that isn’t the life God wanted for us.  We need to remember that we all have special gifts and using those gifts to faithfully honor Him is what God intended.

Reagan, age 6, really enjoyed the movie.  When I asked her what she like best, she said she liked the songs in the movie.  She is loves music and said the songs in the movie were fun to listen to.  As the mom, I liked the message of family values and loving ourselves and others just the way they are.  This is definitely another winner in the VeggieTales collection.  You can find this movie at your local Christian retailer or Wal-Mart. 

Now for the best part…I have a VeggieTales Prize Pack to giveaway to one lucky reader.  The VeggieTales Prize Pack includes VeggieTales Silly Bands, A VeggieTales CD, and a Laura Carrot Bouncy Ball.

As a VeggieTales Ambassador, I received this movie to review and share with our church community.  This review is my honest opinion and I was not compensated in any other way for this review.  I would not review anything that wouldn’t benefit myself or my family.

    My youngest two LOVE veggie tales! (My oldest did too when he was younger). Right now my youngest, Lucas, is obsessed with the 2 LarryBoy shows which we've streamed from Netflix about a billion times now 🙂
    They would LOVE this! Thanks for the chance!
