"Theo" Giveaway

"Theo" is an animated DVD that teaches the basics of the Christian faith.  The series has a Grandfatherly narrator named Theo and two adorable mice named Luther and Belfry (who are reminiscent of Cinderella's little friends).  The quality of animation is good and the show has a great balance between the funny antics of the two little mice and the Biblical messages.




At the start of each show Theo is singing a hymn.  I love that these hymns are being incorporated into this series for young children because it is introducing them to beautiful songs they may not have heard before. 


Biblical concepts such as sin, salvation and faith are taught through the series.  The shows aren't very long (5-9 minutes each), but because the message is so powerful there is plenty to reflect on.  This is a great way to springboard a discussion with your children.


My main wish for "Theo" is that when a Bible verse is quoted, the reference would be stated along with it -- ie: "The Bible says in Romans 3:23...".  Having references reinforced in the dvd series would be helpful for memorization purposes and would also allow people to look up the Scriptures afterwards to read further.  



Desiree (7) said that her favourite part is when the two mice, Luther and Belfry, try to reach the cookies with a hot air balloon.


Elijah (5) said his favourite part is when Theo sings.



The "Theo" website is full of resources.  There is a Parent Guide that helps parents (or even Sunday School teachers) reinforce the concepts discussed in the episodes.  These guides "will recap the Q & A, the Bible Verse, the Bible Story, and present lively ways you can reinforce Bible truths and review teachings at home."  Colouring Pages are available online of Theo, Luther and Belfry.  "Theo" Church Curriculum is also available to purchase.


The Buy 1 - Give 1 Campaign is an amazing program -- for every "Theo: God's Love" dvd purchased, Whitestone Media and Child Evangelism Fellowship will give a child in need their very own copy of "Theo".  You can even select the region of the world where you would like the additional copy to be sent to!  What a great way to share the gospel with your own children as well as with others!



Check Out the "Theo" webpage and the "Theo" Facebook page for more information.  There is also a Free "Theo" App available for iPhone and iPad users.  

Buy It: You can buy "Theo" online at Amazon or through local participating Christian retailers. 

Win It: Two Sowing Dandelion Seeds readers will each win a dvd of "Theo" which includes the episodes "Saving Faith" and "The Good News".
