R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour The Series Volumes 5 and 6 Review and Giveaway - 2 Winners!!! - CLOSED!

***This is a sponsored post,  I was given the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own!

Last week Shout Factory in collaboration with the Hub TV Network released 2 great DVDs for kids entitled: R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour The Series Volume 5 & Volume 6!  Bella just loves this show!  I love watching it with her!  I remember reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps and Fear Street series' when I was a kid and I love sharing all of the spooky stories with my daughter!  When Bella has a sleepover with a friend or cousin, she always brings The Haunting Hour DVDs with her.  The kids love to be scared by R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour.  I must mention that Bella is 9 years old, so she doesn't scare too easily any more.  My little guy Sam is only 5 years old and he can sometimes get scared or have nightmares from watching this program.  I usually watch this with my kids and none of the episodes are too terribly scary.  Bella's favorite episode right now is Scary Mary.  There are two parts to this scary story and she loves sharing the scares with her friends!  Last weekend their cousin Noah came over for a sleepover and all three of the kids were excited to watch R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour and Bella just had to have them watch Scary Mary first!  It's a story about some kids who play a game where the stare into the mirror and say some rhyming words about a girl named Mary.  Little do they know that the prank turns real when one girl is sucked into the mirror and the world of Mary.  There are 5 episodes on each volume.  With Halloween coming up, these DVDs would be an awesome way to get into the spooky mood!  Volumes 1 through 4 of R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour The Series are also available!
