I have reviewed a few other Hermie movies and this one is one of my least favorite. My son is nearly 4 years old, so maybe if he were a bit older, I would feel differently. I did not like this script because I found it very harsh and the characters didn't seem to be very forgiving. I am not opposed to reading or watching things that deal with lying, cheating, etc. (obviously since I bought this movie) however, I just really expected it to be more about the forgiveness and changing of the heart rather than being so focused on the lying. My other issue with Hermie, and again I have several movies, is that there is no word about Jesus. HE is the reason for the Bible and for our salvation and I wish I could find early childhood videos that talked about HIM!!

My son loved this video. He can watch it over and over. This is a great video on lying. I would purchase it for others as a gift. The quality of the video is great. This is one of his best videos.

Our son absolutley LOVES this DVD!! He is 2 and a half, and he understands the concept and especially loves the bright colors and the music. He watches it over and over. My husband and I like the fact that kids can be entertained and learn a lesson at the same time. We would definitely recommend this one!

This book along with "Hermie" and "You are Special" are great books for children! My 2 year old loves this one and so do my 8 and 10 yr olds. Lucado seems to have a way to write any book directly at the audience and it seems like the audience is always you. I love Lucado's adult books and "you are Special" was so great I had to buy this one. It has been carried around, droppped, dragged and dunked, it is still readable and gets read atleast once a day, upon request!

This DVD is hilariously funny, has a wonderful story line and awesome music by Third Day! Vicky Lawrence brings this character to life and captivates my kids with Flo's antics. I even still like it after the 100th time my son asks to watch it.

Teaches the importance of telling the truth and reinforces Christian values.

In a time where it seems "normal" to tell "white lies", this video stands up and reveals the danger in telling even the smallest lies. I recommend this for any age!

Each Hermie and Friends DVD contains timeless truths for both children and their parents. Flo the Lyin' Fly, as the title suggests, shows the importance of telling the truth at a level that young children can understand. It is a story that resonates with their little hearts.

In this video, Flo' is a fly who wants to be liked and thinks that she has to embellish the truth, fabricate elaborate stories, for her friends to like her. She learns though that not telling the truth can get you into trouble as the lies add up. She discovers that others don't want to be around someone who lies. In the end, she discovers the problem with lying, seeks forgiveness from her friends and gains their trust.

Parents can use this video as a teaching tool about lying and the importance of telling the truth; because truth matters and it is knowable.

This is probably my personal favorite Hermie DVD. Now, I'm the mom - but my daughter loves it, too! I can't imagine giving this DVD only 4 stars...it definitely is well deserving of 5+++! This movie provided a great tool to introduce the concept of lying vs. telling the truth to our 3 year old. At this age, the concept can be a bit difficult, but this movie really brings it down to a kid's level of understanding. The DVD also features the "Water Beatles" and some great songs! (Sung by Third Day - really fun!)

This is a clean, wholesome, Christian themed cartoon that looks at behavior and other issues that parents need to address with their little ones. We have every Hermie movie on the market, and we cannot wait for other.

In addition, parents of toddlers know that their kids like to watch the same movies over and over.
These movies are perfect, and they don't make you want to tear your hair out after the 5th time!
