On Tuesday I had the pleasure of meeting Ken Viselman. The creator of Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure. Ken’s past projects include The Teletubbies and Thomas the Tank Engine. Ken and his team have created this unique and interactive movie with parents in mind. The movie is truly interactive and kids are encouraged to sing, dance and move along with the characters.
Ken and his team have definitely done their homework on this movie. I know many parents have seen “so called” kids movies advertised only to get their kids to the movie and have to leave because of the violence or content that really is not intended for young kids. As a mom I can Guarantee you when you take your kids to go see Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, you and your kiddo’s will be glad that you did. Now, you know me, Guarantee’s are not something I usually give out.

The Oogieloves are loveable characters who have a dilemma they need to solve as most kids movies do. But they solve there dilemma WITHOUT violence of any kind. The movie includes team work creative thinking and other positive messages that affect children everyday in a positive way. Ken agrees children see enough violence everyday. There is no need for them to see it in movies. The message of “Love” is spread throughout the movie, not only in the title. Ken is a loving family guy. I know this because I met his mom, brother, niece and nephew on Tuesday. Ken’s mom was as sweet as she was funny. Ken’s loving family ways Ooozes all out in Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure. Be sure and take someone you Love to go see it. Out in a theater near you August or Oogust 29, 2012
