I absolutely love the classic Disney movies. I enjoyed them so much as a child and I have enjoyed sharing them with my little Bug. When I think classic Disney movie, BAMBI always comes to mind. I just adore thumper “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”. So I was very excited to get the Diamond Edition Blu-ray combo pack to add to our family Disney movie collection. We sat down as a family and watched BAMBI, it was Bug’s first time seeing it. He loved it, of course. And the length of the movie is really great for his attention span as well. I am so glad to have this great addition to our classic collection!
