Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It was just another day here in shortling-land when the doorbell rang. Mr. Fed-Ex delivered us a package, the new and improved Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition.

Disney is introducing an all new product line, the Diamond Collection, and no movie could be more fitting for launch than "The One That Started It All." Snow White first debuted in 1937, and transformed the entertainment industry. It was the first full-length animated film ever made, and now, over 70 years later, still touches the hearts of children everywhere.

I was so happy to share Snow White and the Seven Dwarves with my kids. We skipped dinner, made popcorn, turned off the lights, and snuggled up to watch together. It was amazing.

The animation has been restored and the sound, THE SOUND! The music has never been better. (Trust me. The music used while Dopey tried to keep hold of the soap is fantastic. It made me smile all over again.) We were singing and dancing along to the 7.1 digital theater hi-def surround sound all night.

The Diamond Collection premieres today, October 6. The combo pack includes:
