Animated movies are great for entertaining kids as well as imparting a little wisdom. If there’s one message young ones will get from watching Disney’s Planes, it’s that no dream is too big.
Fans of the film will be familiar with Dusty Crophopper, a cropduster plane that dreams of becoming a professional racer. Despite the fact he’s meant to spray cornfields, Dusty embarks on a journey across the world to create his own destiny.
Though he definitely encounters a hitch or two along the way, the important thing is that he never stops fighting to reach his goals. As a parent, it’s safe to say you want the same for your child, and Parents’ latest giveaway is here to offer some inspiration.
Walt Disney is offering a Planes gift basket, complete with a Blu-ray combo pack, Wii game, action figure and interactive book to keep your child flying high. The movie will be officially released on DVD and Blu-ray November 19.
To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and Monday, November 18, and don’t forget to read the official rules. Be sure to check back here November 19 to see who was chosen and look out for a message from us on Facebook. Goody luck!
