New Christmas DVDs 2011 for the Whole Family

Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas DVD
If you're a fan of the Ice Age movies and can't wait for Ice Age 4: Continental Drift next year, you'll be delighted to know that you can get your prehistoric fix this holiday season with Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas. This new animated special will air on Fox TV on Thanksgiving and the Ice Age Christmas DVD will be released November 26.

In this new animated film, Sid breaks Manny's favorite holiday decorations and heads to the North Pole to explain it all to Santa Claus and get off the Naughty List. Crash, Eddie, and Peaches accompany Sid up north, leaving Diego, Manny and Ellie frantically searching for Peaches. Of course, Sid can't stay out of trouble and ends up destroying Santa's workshop on Christmas Eve, so it's up to our favorite prehistoric herd of misfits to set things straight and make sure Christmas isn't canceled.

Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story DVD
Elf on the Shelf was published several years ago, and since then, thousands of kids have joined in the Christmas tradition of having a scout elf visit their home and report to Santa whether they've been naughty or nice. Now they can get a look at what it's like to be one of those secret helpers.

Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story will premiere on CBS this year, and the new Christmas DVD for 2011 will be released on November 26. This animated special tells the story of Chippey, a scout elf who is assigned to a boy named Taylor who can't decide whether he still believes in Santa Claus and Christmas magic. When Taylor breaks the most important Elf on the Shelf rule, Chippey loses all his Christmas magic and the family loses its scout elf. But through the power of love and forgiveness, both Chippey and Taylor discover that true belief in Christmas isn't something that can be taught.
