Special Christmas Giveaway on November 21, 2015 - Galaxy Buck DVD

For quite a few months there has been a countdown going on to the release of the new series from Phil Vischer . . . Galaxy Buck. I was invited to preview the first adventure . . . Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 and am very happy to share with you my opinion of this new series . . . and announce a fun giveaway as well!

Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9
Produced by - Jellyfish Labs
Rating - Not Rated
Ages - doesn't really say, but I'd put it at about 4+

Favorite Features - 
  • Return of favorite characters from the, "What's in the Bible" series, also from Phil Vischer.
  • Strong message about how God wants us, as we are and we can trust Him.
  • Fun space humor and setting . . . children and parents - and grandparents - will enjoy this new series.
  • Encourages children to have dreams and then trust God to see how He will use them.
Jellyfish Labs says; "Buck Denver has a simple dream - to save the galaxy. Working for the Galactic Mission Board, Buck dreams of carrying God's love to every corner of the Milky Way! Except he doesn't have a starship. Or a crew. Or even a captain's license. He just needs a chance. But when that chance comes and Buck finds himself leading a real mission into deep space, things don't go at ALL like he imagined! Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 is a wild galactic adventure which teaches children a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything - even our dreams!"

Galaxy Buck will take the children you love on a new adventure into space to share God's love with others! Children will experience the excitement of not knowing what is going to happen next and the thrill of seeing how it all works out . . . likely in ways they did not anticipate! There is plenty of fun, suspense and excitement in Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9, so even older children will enjoy this series. I am delighted to say, in this new series, Phil Vischer does not disappoint. Just as with VeggieTales, Galaxy Buck will entertain children while providing humor their parents - and grandparents - will enjoy as well! And, most important of all, children and adults will learn important truths by watching this fun, new series! 

I'm so happy to see another series which combines excellent storytelling and solid Bible teaching - children and adults will be encouraged to learn from Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 about how God wants them . . . whether they do anything "big" or not! They will be encouraged to share God's love with others, to trust God and to have dreams and goals for their lives . . . then to expect God will do things far better than they could ever dream or imagine! Fun and a great way to learn and be encouraged; Galaxy Buck: Mission To Sector 9 is an, "out of this world, hit"! This is a series the whole family will enjoy - I'm looking forward to the next adventure!

  1. I would not like to go to space. Although I used to want to go when I was a kid. My daughter is 6 yrs old and thinks it would be fun to go to space.

  2. I have no desire to go into space but am grateful for those that do and bring back wonderful photos. A dream come true for me would be a car trip across the country and back, visiting as many states as I could!

  3. No space for me.. I'd love to visit a few places like Australia.
