** Please note that I received a party pack for review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own. **
Remember Donkey Kong? I know, totally a way to make us parents feel old! Well the Kong is back in the all New Donkey Kong Country DVD that includes four classic episodes from everyone’s favorite cartoon ape.
We were able to check out the new DVD from Phase 4 Films and have a totally rad 80’s party with the slap bracelets (remember those?), mesh gloves (in neon colors of course) and a few pairs of infamous wayfarers (which have made a comeback in the last few years) that came with our package! This came in handy on a rather rainy Saturday recently and I was out of ideas for things to do.
My two little monkeys enjoyed seeing Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong come to life and I was happy that the movie entertained them and had a good moral at the end of the story.
Story line: When King R. Kool’s last attack fails, he comes up with a new strategy to steal the Crystal Coconut by cloning Candy Kong with an evil robot. While trimming Donkey Kong’s hair, Candy Clone puts a hex oh him that removes all of his strength, which now leaves the Crystal Coconut without a protector. With time running out, Cranky must come up with an antidote and get it to Donkey Kong before King R. Kool and his army succeeds in their next attack.
The 90-minute DVD is available starting August 20, 2013 in major retailers for $9.99. For more info on Phase 4 Films please visit http://www.kaboom-ent.com
