HFVS Weekly Giveaway: Shelly Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre DVD Collection

Shelly Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre (DVD: 7-Disc Collection)

Shelly Duvalls Faerie Tale Theatre 7-Disc (DVD) Collection

Shelly Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre 7-Disc (DVD) Collection

THIS WEEKS CONTEST

My family has always enjoyed Shelly Duvall’s Faerie Tale Theatre videos. The award-winning series originally broadcast on Showtime with twenty-six classic fairy tales (from the Brothers Grimm to Hans Christian Andersen) that featured Oscar, Tony and Emmy-winning talent. This star-powered, critically acclaimed series is an unparalleled treasury of every child’s best-loved tales of enchantment, adventure and wonder, and a video collection that I always feel comfortable sharing with my daughter.

We loved seeing Robin William as the Frog Prince, Billy Crystal as one of the Three Little Pigs; Bernadette Peters and Christopher Reeve as Sleeping Beauty and the Prince Charming; Carrie Fisher as Thumbelina; and a host of additional talent and classic stories.

Until now we’ve only been able to watch these performances on video and there are many we have missed, including the long lost “Grimm Party” episode. This month the complete collection will be release as a 7-disc-collection by Koch Vision. When I heard this I was THRILLED! They sent us a copy to review and offer as part of our weekly giveaway . We were delighted to find that the set also includes a lavish 112-page illustrated storybook and 3-in-1 card game.

I could gush on and on about this series. I just think it is great, wholesome entertainment for the entire family via classic fairy tales and talented directors and actors. It’s an excellent way to introduce your children to quality theatre, acting and traditional stories.

    OMG, I left out where I live! I live in Windham, NH, and used to drive out to Northampton when my daughter lived there to attend UMASS. I can’t wait to tell my children that a great show is available on DVD,

    This is one of my daughter’s favorite shows from her childhood. She and I were discussing Faerie Tale Theater, The Storyteller and Fraggle Rock last night, and she said how much she loved the Pied Piper and Thumbelina. Her (much) younger brother missed out on these fine programs, so owning the DVDs would be a great present for him.

    I watched all these shows when I was a child. I have been looking for them since I became pregnant with my first child almost 8 years ago. I now have 3 children that I would love to share my childhood memories with. My husband and I have made sure to share the movies and shows that we grew up with our children. We believe it is important to keep these memories alive. I hope to share these movies not only to my children but my grandchildren one day. Thank you for this opportunity!

    I was looking on a search to find out when this month this is being released. I have been waiting for a while now and am so excited to find this being given away here. I watched these when I was a kid and am so excited to share them with my girls. Scenes of many of these are etched in my memory. It’s so fun now, as an adult, to see them with fresh eyes and recognize all of the actors and actresses that I was pretty oblivious to back then. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Hi,
    I stumbled in this website while checking out the prices for the Faerie Tale Theatre collection to buy for my 7-year old granddaughter. She’s a beautiful, happy little blond imp, very smart and loves science, has a wonderful imagination, high spirited and has the most prize-winning smile you’ve ever seen … it’s difficult to believe she’s autistic. I love your website, as it a treasure trove of cool and interesting things. I love the dinosaur section! I would love to win the Faerie Tale collection for this very special youngster, and help expand her world!
