R. L. Stine's The Haunting Hour Volumes 1 & 2 Review and Giveaway (2 Winners!) - CLOSED!

On September 4th, R. L. Stine's children's series, The Haunting Hour will be released to DVD in two volumes!  I was really excited to receive these DVDs.  I honestly didn't know that this series existed before I heard of the DVDs.  Now I will be on the lookout for this show on The Hub TV Network!  I was a huge fan of R. L. Stine's books when I was younger.  I read the Fear Street books and his Goosebumps series meant for younger kids too!  I remember begging my mom to buy me a new R. L. Stine book every week when we went to the store!

It was so much fun watching these DVDs with Bella!  Sam even got into them too!  He's been liking Scooby Doo and Gravity Falls - two kid's mystery shows, so I wasn't too surprised that he liked The Haunting Hour.  My kids don't get scared too easily, so if yours do, you may want to be careful showing them The Haunting Hour.  These DVDs are perfect for kids for the upcoming Halloween holiday!!!  Bella was thrilled to see some of the stars from her favorite movies and shows who make an appearance in these DVDs including Bailee Madison (Brothers, Just Go With It), Connor Price (The Dead Zone, Will & Dewitt) and Grayson Russell (Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules).  R. L. Stine's The Haunting Hour Volumes 1 & 2 will make a great addition to your kids' DVD collection - especially if they (or you) are a fan!!!
