Hayley and I last year went to see Mary Poppins on Broadway and that is where she got introduced to the famous Mary Poppins. We actually never owned the DVD (I have seen it plenty of times before) but we borrowed it from a friend before we went to see the show. The excitement of her watching Mary Poppins was truly fantastic. Now, her beloved DVD is back in all new Disney Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition, starring the wonderful Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.

The kids and I love this DVD because of the vast amount of imagination and the fact that Mary Poppins is such a wonderful character. The kids were blown away to see her fly into the homes of the children and make each chore fun and exciting. Mary Poppins had some issue with Mr. Banks, but in the end, it was Mary and her ways, that led the family to happiness.
I dare you to turn on Mary Poppins and not love it! The 140 minute film will leave you wanting more and more! We have received this DVD about 2 weeks ago and it has been watched a total of 8 times already- I kid you not! Oh, and the music and visual effects are simply stunning. I leave you with this: Supercalifragilisticexpialdocious….Enjoy Mary Poppins, now available on Amazon just in time of the holiday season.
