Introducing The Search for Santa Paws
In the tradition of Disney’s classic holiday tales comes a heartwarming movie about the power of giving and the true meaning of Christmas. Discover how the legendary friendship of Santa Claus and Santa Paws began in the inspiring original film, The Search For Santa Paws.
When Santa and his new best friend, Paws, discover that the boys and girls of the world have lost the spirit of the season, they take a trip to New York City. But after Santa loses his memory, it’s up to Paws, a faithful orphan named Quinn (America’s Got Talent’s Kaitlyn Maher), her new friend Will (The Game Plan’s Madison Pettis) and a wonderful group of magical talking dogs to save St. Nick and show the world what Christmas is really all about.
We own every Buddies movie. Air Bud, Santa Buddies and the like are on our shelves and the kids love watching them. The season is almost here and in a two short days the newest movie from Disney and the Buddies creators will hit stores, The Search for Santa Paws. This touching story about Santa and his best friend has a little to grab the attention of all of the family. Our copy arrived and the kids wanted to watch right away. Being the mean mom I am I made them wait until I could watch it with them. They don’t get to have all the fun right? There is a touch of heartbreak with Quinn, the little girl living in a group home with an uncaring “mom”. We watch as Santa and Santa Paws lose their special powers and are of course saved in the Nick of time. The only disappoint for me was that the Buddies were not in this movie. The Search for Santa Paws was a great prequel to the Santa Buddies movie where we were first introduced to Santa Paws. It was nice to know the story from behind it.
Bonus Material: As with most movies on DVD these days, The Search for Santa Paws does not let down with the bonus material. There is an animated pop-up book which lets kids interact with Rosebud as she tells a story about the dogs from the Search for Santa Paws. The kids have gone through this several times.
The best part though has got to be the sing along lyrics. The kids love to sing but now knowing the words can be hard for this mommy. I’d have to sit and watch the movie too many times to catch all the words in order to sing along. With the sing along lyrics we can watch and sing all together. Reminds me of the old Sing-Along videos from when I was younger. I used to have a Winnie the Pooh Sing along video on VHS.
