Earlier this month Disney released a brand new DVD entitled: Gravity Falls: Six Strange Tales. My kids are big fans of this program on Disney Channel, so we were all thrilled to receive a copy of this DVD to review. In this program Dipper and Mabel who are in fact twins are sent to live with their "Grunkle" Stan for the summer. This DVD would be a fun one for the kids this Halloween. It's just a little spooky while the twins try to solve mysteries, but not too spooky for kids. This DVD also came with a really cool journal that Sam has been carrying around for days! He loves to pretend that he's trying to solve a mystery like Dipper. This DVD contains over two hours of fun! Make sure to pick up your copy today!!
Synopsis: In this animated adventure comedy riddled with mystery, twin brother and sister Dipper and Mabel are sent to spend their summer vacation with their great uncle. Upon arrival, their great uncle, also known as Grunkle Stan, enlists the siblings' help in running The Mystery Shack, a fun tourist trap he owns that overcharges unsuspecting customers. While Dipper has a hard time getting used to his new surroundings, Mabel's upbeat optimism comes in handy in her quest to find true love. When Dipper stumbles upon an elusive book, he discovers that it is the key to unlocking the town's mysterious secrets, and the brother and sister duo soon realize they must rely on one another to navigate the unfamiliar place.
