I received a copy of Spookley the Square Pumpkin and plush for review.  All opinions are mine. This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is all about the pumpkins.  Halloween just wouldn't be the same without them!  And if your kids are anything like mine, they love watching their favorite tv specials like It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  Alongside this classic, my girls have made it a new tradition to watch Spookley the Square Pumpkin on Disney Junior.

For the first time, Spookley the Square Pumpkin is now available in a Blu-ray combo pack and digital HD from Cinedigm.

Disney Junior

SPOOKLEY THE SQUARE PUMPKIN, written and created by Joe Troiano, tells the story of a square pumpkin living in a round pumpkin patch on Holiday Hill Farm. Although Spookley initially faces ridicule from his fellow patch-mates, he goes on to save the day during a terrible storm. As a result, all the pumpkins in the patch learn that the things that make you different make you special.

Disney Junior, Halloween, teaching kids about kindness, shows about anti-bullying, tolerance

In a world where the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins, Spookley is teased because of his square shape. Shunned by the other pumpkins, Spookley is befriended by Edgar, Allan and Poe, three hilarious spiders, who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the Pick of the Patch. But Big Tom and Little Tom, the pumpkin bullies in the patch, continue to tease and taunt Spookley.

Encouraged by kindly Jack Scarecrow and his bat sidekicks, Boris and Bella, Spookley tries his best, but he isn’t sure he has what it takes until a mighty storm threatens Holiday Hill Farm. When the storm blows the round pumpkins across the patch towards the raging river, Spookley realizes it is up to him and his square shape to save the day.

BLU-RAY COMBO PACK BONUS FEATURES INCLUDE 5 EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PICTURE BOOKS*:
The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin
The Legend of Beacon the Bright Little Firefly
The Legend of JellyBean and the Unbreakable Egg
The Legend of Lyla the Lovesick Ladybug
The Legend of Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens

This is the perfect length to keep little ones' attention with such an important message!   Spookley encourages children to learn to embrace their differences and know that it's okay to be who you are.  It also teaches about treating others with kindness, being strong and courageous, and the power of friendship.    

My first grader has had to deal with feeling "different" when she got her first pair of glasses and some boys told her she looked weird.  Kids will be kids, but they also need to know that bullying is not okay.  Spookley is a character with whom all kids who have been teased or bullied can relate.



This year, Spookley the Square Pumpkin also returns as the "Official Spokes-Pumpkin" of National Bullying Prevention Month through a partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. PACER, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, provides innovative resources for students, parents, educators, and others, and recognizes bullying as a serious community issue that impacts education, physical and emotional health, and the safety and well-being of students.  For more information on Spookley’s activities with PACER, visit: www.PACER.org/Bullying/



The animated television special, based on the bestselling Spookley book series, has been a long time Halloween tradition for families.  You'll want to bring home a copy today!

I like that this shows that not all pumpkins are round and can still be pumpkins! :)

I love that Spookley never gave up and showed everyone that, even though he was different and looked different, he could do the same things the others could... even more!
