WIN Shaun the Sheep Movie Prize Pack #ShauntheSheep #IC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lionsgate. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.  All opinions are my own.

Shaun the sheep is a cute little sheep who leads his flock into zany adventures at Mossy Bottom Farm.  Each adventure usually involves an animal trying to break up their monotonous life style with either human devices or human activities.  It is great fun for kids and adults as a show.  The creators also made the Wallace and Gromit TV show.  The movie has a claylike feel to it with very realistic expressions.

The new Shaun the Sheep movie fallows one of Shaun’s adventures, but this time the farmers life is on the line as is the well being of the farm itself.  The adventures of Shaun in the big city are mad cap and silly, making this a fun movie for kids and adults with its slapstick, non violent comedy.

One of my favorite characters from the movie is Timmy.  Timmy is Shaun’s little cousin who idolizes Shaun (to the point of getting into  a lot of the same trouble Shaun does).  But because he’s the small and cutest member of the flock, he can get away with just about anything.  Know anyone like that, do we?

We really enjoy the  emphasis on teamwork and working as a flock in this movie.  Leadership also played a key role as did problem solving in a creative way.  These are great messages for kids- and some adults, as well.


I would suggest this movie for any family with kids, it is rated PG.  The movie opens in theaters across the country on August 5th.

Below is the official film synopsis, :”When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for.  A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home. The film is geared toward children ages 4-10.

Want to win your own movie prize pack?  You will win an adult shirt, kids shirt, sheep headband, movie poster, book, and sheep!  Just enter into the RC form below.  Good luck!  Ends Aug 7, 2015.
