Fan favorite VeggieTales character Larry the Cucumber greets visitors on the website’s homepage. He helps to fully immerse children and their parents in the wide range of games, video clips, silly songs, interactive story books, e-cards, character pages, Bible verses, the customizable “My Room” feature, and downloadable take-away play activities including coloring pages and cut-outs the site hosts. During each visit, Larry the Cucumber says funny whimsical phrases and offers nuggets of advice to children and parents navigating the site. Additionally, a site highlight will be “The Daily Word,” hosted by Qwerty, where a new Bible verse and short devotional for kids will be posted each day and voiced by a different VeggieTales character.
“We developed VeggieTales.com with our current fans in mind, but we hope the website excites and endears a new group of VeggieTales enthusiasts as well,” said Leslie Ferrell, General Manager of Big Idea Entertainment. “We will continue to add fresh content to the site each month, making it a unique and exciting experience for visitors every time they return. We hope you’ll join Larry the Cucumber, Bob the Tomato, Petunia Rhubarb, Junior Asparagus and the rest of the Veggie bunch at our new home!”
In addition to the many interactive features on the site, VeggieTales.com includes a special resource section for parents, churches and schools. There is also a link to access a brand new VeggieTales consumer products store, with over 500 VeggieTales products available.
