Contest: Kai-Lan and Mr. Troop Mom

posted by Nell Minow

The first three people to respond will win DVDs of these two great new family releases. Many thanks to the folks at Nickelodeon for these wonderful prizes.

In Ni Hao, Kai-Lan: Kai-Lan’s Great Trip to China, the adorable cartoon heroine goes to visit her great aunt, bringing along her friends for adventures and learning about new cultures, new foods, and new words. Preschoolers and their families will enjoy the gentle lessons and colorful journey, especially the pandas.

Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Kai-Lan” in the subject line. One prize to a family.

Mr. Troop Mom stars George Lopez, Jane Lynch (of “Glee”) and the adorable Naked Brothers (Alex and Nat Wolf) in a story about a widower who becomes the troop leader for his 13-year-old daughter and finds himself in the middle of an all-female campout and competition — and connecting to his daughter — in a story that is fun, funny, and very sweet.
