If you tell a joke in the forest but nobody laughs, is it still a joke?

If you're like me and you've taken a couple of days off next week to get a week and a halfs worth of "home time" then you'll also be wondering what to do with the kids for the next week or so?

Nu Metro Home Entertainment has recently released some great kids DVDs. Here are three of the cleverest and funniest animated DVDs to keep the kids (and adults) entertained this Easter weekend!

How to Train Your Dragon

A Dreamworks production, this is the touching story of a Viking named Hiccup and a ferocious dragon named Toothless who defy tradition and make friends with each other in a world where humans and dragons are deadly enemies.

There is lots of action, bravery and heroics as Hiccup and Toothless have to fight to save their worlds. A delightful action-filled movie for both boys and girls.


Described as mega funny, Megamind is a whole new twist on the traditional superhero movies.

Megamind (Will Ferrell) is a Supervillian whose dream is realised when he overthrows Metro Man (Brad Pitt) to take control of Metro City.

But there's a new villian on the block and he's causing chaos in the city. The world's biggest "mind" and his mega-cute little sidekick Minion have to save the day. Full of awesome animation and humour that will appeal to everyone from the age of six to sixty-six, it's my eight-year old daughter's favourite movie of 2011.

Open Season 3

The lovable furry forest friends are back! This time the acion takes place in a Big Top circus! The story revolves around Boog, who decides to take a trip on his own after all his buddies back out of their annual boys-only holiday.

When Boog comes across a circus, he ends up switching places with a circus bear - with hilarious results. But the circus is soon on its way to Russia with Boog trapped on board. Will his friends be able to rescue him?

You'll have to get the DVD to find out...

Enjoy and Happy Easter Weekend! 

I will be drowning myself in Cadbury's Creme Eggs!

I like the sound of How To Train Your Dragon. Son would watch Megamind.

Even though mine are older we do like a good animated film. I'm wanting to pick up Avatar and watch it again. They have the extended collectors edition.

Enjoy your family time.

I think the only one that my kids did not see, was Open Season 3. Maybe we'll check it out.
Have a good weekend!

My boys have been glued to the story of "How to Train Your Dragon" since it first came out in the cinema. And I have to admit, if I were there age I would be even worse then them! I loved dragons and dinosaurs and anything pertaining to gargantuan reptiles in general, but there was only old Godzilla movies back then in those oh-so-primitive 1970's...

I loved How To Train...
I think I actually cried at one point. Mostly cuz I'm a pussy but also because it was sweet.

Seems that my children have enjoyed Megamind the most of all of the movies you've mentioned. I too :)
