Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enter Shredder Coming to DVD July 9

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Enter Shredder  Coming to DVD on July 9
Get lean, mean, and green with the Turtles team! Join Leo, Donnie, Raph and Mikey as they take to the streets of NYC, where every turn yields a new enemy. Get ready for non-stop battles against Kraang-droids, mechanical Mousers, a mutant alligator, and even the evil Shredder himself. 

Our Thoughts:  The DVD arrived on the day of our annual Summer birthday party.  I had a houseful of kids and from the moment the DVD began playing to the very end, the kids watched intensely.  No video games.  No apps.  No potty breaks.  They were into this DVD.  The DVD is over 2 hours long and nearly ten kids were completely captivated from episode 1 to the very end.  

Now let's sing together "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles heroes in a half shell - Turtle Power!"  

Buy It:  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:  Enter Shredder DVD is available at Nick Shop and many online stores including Amazon.
