posted by Nell Minow

dreamworks holiday collectionAll your favorite DreamWorks animation characters are included in the fabulous Dreamworks Holiday Collection, and I have two to give away!

* Shrek the Halls (2007) – Shrek promises Fiona a special Christmas surprise, but as usual, Donkey gets involved, and things get hilariously out of control.

* Merry Madagascar (2009) – Alex, Marty, Melman, and Gloria try to escape from Africa and return to the zoo in New York in a hot air balloon. In an unlikely turn of events, Alex unintentionally shoots down Santa Claus while he’s delivering Christmas gifts. The would-be escapees come up with a plan to deliver Santa’s gifts and get themselves back to New York.

* Gift of the Night Fury (2011) – In the middle of preparing for the Viking winter holiday. Hiccup and the other Vikings of Berk from “How to Train Your Dragon” make a remarkable discovery about their dragons.

* Kung Fu Panda Holiday (2010) – Master Shifu assigns Po to host the annual Winter Feast at the Jade Palace, a very formal occasion where all the Kung Fu masters of China attend. Will Po’s father be able to help with the cooking?

To win the box set, send me an email with “DreamWorks” in the subject line and tell me which of these characters you’d like to have come to your family’s holiday celebration. Don’t forget your address! (US addresses only) I’ll pick a winner at random on December 1. Good luck!
