The brand new film from DreamWorks, HOME due for release on March 27th 2015! After seeing a trailer for it in the cinema a few weeks ago we were all excited to go and see this.
Based on the acclaimed book ‘The True Meaning of Smekday,’ DreamWorks Animation’s ‘Home’ is not standard post-apocalyptic-alien-invasion-buddy-comedy.
When Earth is taken over by the overly confident Boov in an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated. Captain Smek optimistically declares ‘relocation is fun and mandatory’, while all Boov get busy efficiently reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov by the name of Oh. Equally stubborn and set in their ways, these two fugitives realise there’s a lot at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime, good thing they have a flying car.
Making our way into the city to catch the new DreamWorks movie HOME both Roo and Tigger were eager to see if the film lived up to the trailer. What can I tell you? We were not disappointed! The different characters make you fall in love with them for different reasons, Roo thought it was funny that Tig had a cat called Fig for example. Oh has to be the firm favourite, especially when it comes to his dancing in the car which Tigger has now taken to doing ‘look I’m waving my hands let I just don’t care!’.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
It’s funny how a selection of movie merchandise can divide a families opinion on which is the best product. Personally I love the Home Boov Mood Ears, they are so cute (I’d even wear them myself) and I love that they can be styled in different ways depending on your mood.
Tigger loves the Home Captain Smek’s Shusher Wand, he has been whooshing and casting spells all around the house with it, learning the phrases off by heart and pressing the button to activate it to annoy Roo whilst she is watching something on the TV.
Roo on the other hand loves the idea of trying to collect all of the Home Mood Bubbles and couldn’t resist the charm of the Home Plush Captain Smek. She has already starting saving to get the Home Plush Oh!
Overall I believe that there is a toy for everyone within the Flair Home toy collection. With other items available including an Animated Dancing Plush Oh and Animated Tip Doll and Oh I can see these making their way on to many birthday wish lists this year.
(Apologies for the look on Tigger’s face, we are going through the ‘I don’t want a photo‘ phase)
