DVD Review scooby - Doo

We were recently sent Scooby-Doo Adventures: The Mystery Map to entertain the children too.  It was available from 21st October 2013. 


Liam is a huge fan of Scooby Doo, however it can be a little scary at times for younger children so I was a little reluctant to let the boys watch it, We settled down on Sunday afternoon to watch it all together and soon found out this was Scooby with a difference. 

The Mystery Map uses puppets instead of animation. I wasn't sure what to think at first. Same Scooby Doo style movie but with Sesame Street type puppets. 

The Mystery Map is an adventure story all about Scooby Doo and his gang on the search for some treasure. They are accidentally delivered a treasure map along with their pizza and they decide to follow it, which leads them on a great adventure involving a phantom parrot, pirates and lots of danger and excitement. There are a couple of songs along the way too which the boys had a dance too which was nice to see them enjoying it.

The film is rated U with mild threat and scary scenes I didn't think it was to scary but I wouldn't let them watch it on there own the first time they watch it  as they may need some reassurance with characters like the Phantom Parrot and Gnarly the Pirate, and the general spooky atmosphere.
the film lasts for forty three minutes which is quite reasonable for a child's film it meant they didn't have time to get bored.

Over all the boys really loved this film, I would recommend it but with some parental guidance especially if you have children that are a little nervous, this film would make a great stocking filler or gift for Christmas.

I was sent this DVD for the purpose of this review all opinions expressed are honest and remain my own
