While we love Rudolf as much as the next guy, we're also thrilled to find holiday movies that are modern. One of our favorite newcomers features a feisty pig named Olivia (you know the one who loves opera, art and ballet). Olivia is a 6 ¾ year old little girl whose confidence, imagination and humor makes family time fun and exciting for everyone. This year Merry Christmas Olivia ($13.99 on DVD) might just replace some of the dusty oldies.
The DVD is a compilation of eight episodes from the hit Nick Jr. television show '??OLIVIA'? that is sure to spread holiday cheer. Parents and their little ones can take part in Olivia'??s adventures as she performs an ice show with friends, trails an abominable snowman, dreams of being Santa and more! We like the bite-sized episodes (perfect for breaks in the car or while traveling by plane this holiday). Colorful, witty and a little sassy, Olivia is sure to brighten your Christmas. Buy on Amazon $13.99.
