Jingle All The Way 2 blu-ray

Fox Home Entertainment recently sent me a Blu-ray copy of Jingle All The Way 2, along with a big box of holiday goodies to share with my family. So, of course we created a fun viewing party for our granddaughter and nieces. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick-start the holiday season than a fun afternoon with our girls.

Our viewing party included festive treats, letters to Santa, Jingle All The Way 2 themed activity sheets, decorating Santa hats, decorating cookies, coloring tree ornaments, and buckets of popcorn while we watched the movie. We had so much fun!

jinglealltheway4444

If you’re like me and a fan of Jingle All The Way (1996), then you’re likely to enjoy Jingle All The Way 2. All I have to say after sending my dad on several searches for “sold out” toys over the years is – the struggle is real. Filled with laugh out loud moments, and plenty of heart Jingle All The Way 2 did not disappoint this family. We all love a good under-dog story, especially when it’s led by funnyman Larry The Cable Guy. Though I might be a little basis when it comes to Larry after having the chance to meet and spend time with him on a movie set a couple of years ago. He’s just a real nice guy. All three girls enjoyed watching the movie. Making it a hit and one that we’re happy to have in our home collection. Though, two out of the three have since asked if I could buy them a Harrison Bear that talks..yikes!

Don’t forget you can download and print your own Jingle All The Way 2 activity sheets here on my previous blog post.

Jingle All the Way 2 is available now to purchase or rent!
