Who doesn't love the classic Disney movies, right? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my all time favorites! Disney lovingly refers to this movie as "The one that started it all" and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is being released from the vault for the first time in seven years. I remember going to see a special re-release in the theater when I was a girl. It is a classic story with a fairy tale ending, it was such a magical feeling being able to watch it on the big screen. Whenever I see this movie it brings back such great memories! I don't get to play with too much princess stuff being the mom of three boys but I was absolutely thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack.
The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack was released on October 6th. The combo pack includes a Blu-Ray disc as well as a regular DVD. Perfect for our family as we do not own a Blu-Ray player yet but plan to within the next six months. The combo packs are such a great idea. It allows families like ours to purchase a movie that they love in two different formats. This I personally love because the DVD can be given to the kids to use on the computer or in their room. Or in our case given to Benji. He loves walking around and holding DVD's, fun for him but horrible for the DVD. With the combo pack we don't have to worry that our only copy of the movie will be scratched up and ruined. I have also heard that the Blu-Ray discs are the most scratch proof and kid friendly movies and way better than regular DVD's.
It was so awesome to be able to share this movie with the boys. They were more excited than I was to see it if you can believe it. We watched it over and over again the first few days after we received it. Probably one of the funniest things that happened was when Oscar was asking me if he could watch it again and referred to it as "Snow White and the Seven Dorks"! I was laughing so hard because he seriously thought that is what it was called! You can't really blame him though because he has no idea what a dwarf is and you have to admit the dwarfs do act kind of dorky.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition has all new digital restoration with enhanced picture and sound. I have to say that even though I watched this movie on the regular DVD player it looked amazing! The colors were so vibrant and you could clearly hear the sound quality. I can't wait to see this movie again once we get our PS3, which is what we would use to watch Blu-Ray movies. Not only is the picture and sound quality up to six times better than a regular DVD player but the Blu-Ray allows you to be interactive with all the special extras that are included.
Here are some of the extras that are included with the Blu-ray Combo Pack Features:

My boys and I had such a great time watching this movie together. I can't wait to see all the fun that we are going to have once we get to play with the special features. I know that Oscar will love Dopey's Wild Mine Ride Game and Benji will love the "Heigh-Ho" Karaoke Sing-along. I really enjoyed all the interesting facts and the history behind the movie. For a night filled with family fun for everyone I highly reccomend getting the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack.
