I hope I’m not turning into a Scrooge, but I find the Disney’s Magical Fireplace DVD very lame.
Here is what Disney writes about it:
Disney’s Magical Fireplace
· Disney brings the magic of the season into your home with this exclusive virtual Yule Log DVD.
This DVD also features two separate audio tracks – natural crackling fire sounds and a great holiday music soundtrack that includes two favorites by Mickey and the Gang. Bring some Disney magic to your fireplace – it makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays!
I’ve seen the basic idea before, and I think most of you have, too… An endless-loop video of a roaring fire in a home fireplace. Disney has “plussed” it with a bad-looking Tink CGI flying around (apparently not even using the newer, better-looking depiction of her from the newer Tinker Bell sequels), plus fireworks. Fireworks inside a fireplace? Kids, don’t try this at home! There are Hidden Mickeys inside the fireplace, a thought that’s very disturbing to me: Maybe Judge Frollo enjoys imagining cartoon characters in fire, but nobody in my Mouse House does.
You can choose to hear either of two different audio tracks. One is a standard soundtrack of a roaring fire. The other track features old, repurposed Christmas songs, Disney-style.
I’m sure some people will like this, but not me. What do you think about it? If your computer is Flash-enabled, check out the short video about it here. Reply if you agree with me or if you think I’m a bit too much “Bah humbug!” about it.
