A few months ago my family was introduced to Kuu Kuu Harajuku – and we all instantly fell in love. This show is so much fun for my daughters, and it is something I enjoy watching with them. This show currently airs on Nick Jr. and was created by singer Gwen Stefani – and it is pretty amazing. The newest DVD, Super Kawaii, contains 12 (yes 12!!) episodes from season one PLUS new interviews with the voice cast. We received an advance copy, but it hits stores on September 26th.
It is no secret that the Smiths are a family of geeks. We love it all – especially technology. Sphero recently released some new App-enabled Droids and we have been in awe of them! I mean, what Star Wars nerd doesn’t want their own R2-D2, BB-8, or the new BB-9E to follow them around and do their bidding. We were thrilled when Sphero sent us a couple of these to check out – and we can’t stop playing with them!
In case you some how have missed it, my daughters and I are HUGE My Little Pony fans! I grew up watching them and I am not ashamed to admit, I have been watching the latest series, Friendship is Magic, with my girls all the time. Even my husband is a fan of My Little Pony. So naturally from the moment we saw the trailer for My Little Pony: The Movie, we knew it was a must see for our family.
As most of you know, I have two young daughters. From the moment they first saw the Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie trailer, they wanted to see it. We ended up going to see it in theaters and I admit, I loved it! My husband and I walked out of there totally shocked that we actually were looking forward to seeing it again. You can’t beat the cast, and, despite many potty jokes, it is hilarious!
Who doesn’t love a good Disney•Pixar movie? I mean, you are guaranteed to feel love, sadness, and to cry – a lot – for both of those reasons. Take Inside Out for example – I still cannot hear the words “Bing Bong” without shedding a tear or twenty. But that is what makes me love these films so much. They make me feel things. And from the moment I saw the first glimpse of Coco at the D23 Expo in 2015, I knew that it would do the same. The latest trailer and poster just came out and WOW, they have me even more excited for this movie than I already was.
In our house, we are huge Fluttershy fans! Don’t get me wrong, all of the My Little Pony Mane Six are great in their own way, but Fluttershy stands out to me. She is my favorite, as well as my youngest daughter’s favorite. Even my husband likes her. What I adore about her is her love for animals and also how soft spoken she is. When we found out there was going to be a new My Little Pony Friendship is Magic DVD that focuses on our favorite shy pony, we were thrilled! Friendship Is Magic: Fluttershy is coming to DVD on September 12 – and we were lucky enough to get an advance copy!
There are several shows that we really enjoy watching together as a family, and one of them is LEGO Nexo Knights. We are all basically fans of anything LEGO related, so we knew this was going to be a hit right away. We were all excited when received an advance copy of Season 3 on DVD and started binging right away. Anyone who has enjoyed the first two seasons, or is just a LEGO fan is sure to love it!
Elena is back with all-new adventures coming to DVD with the release of Elena of Avalor: Celebrations to Remember! Join Elena and her friends and family as they celebrate holidays that honor the past, cherish the present and look forward towards a magical future! In these new adventures Avalor celebrates Navidad, Dia de los Muertos and Carnaval! There’s something special to look forward to with each holiday!
My daughters and I love Disney Junior. It is one of our favorite channels to watch together. There are so many great shows – that all have a great lesson to be learned. Plus, who doesn’t just LOVE Disney? We are huge Disney fans! One of our current favorite shows is P. King Duckling. This show is so much fun, and the first DVD is on it’s way out! Be sure to grab your copy on September 12. We received an advance copy and it is full of some of the best episodes.
Even though school just started, the holidays are fast approaching. With so many toys out there, I wanted to give you a heads up on five from Little Tikes that we have – and that my girls love! These are all sure to make great holiday gifts for your little ones. Trust me, it is never too early to start shopping.
We were so excited when Spin Master Games sent us Cars 3 Piston Cup Showdown too! This game looked like a ton of fun and we were thinking about picking it up ourselves – and then it showed up at our door! I just knew this was a game that my daughters would love. Not only because they are huge Cars and Disney fans, but because they love games – especially ones that pit them against each other.
There is nothing my girls and I like better than cuddling up and putting on a good TV Show or movie. Some of our favorite titles come from NCircle Entertainment – and the August 2017 releases were no different. These four DVDs are packed full of fun – and I am excited to give one lucky reader a chance to win them all!
Back to school time can mean a lot of new transitions for many people. Make sure your little one is riding in safety during this time. Did you know that many children aren’t ridding in the proper car seat, and many ditch it too quickly. Diono has a great article to help you learn the top 10 Car Safety Tips to keep your family safe.
I have two daughters, ages 4 and 6, and they love to play together! They create many different storylines and it is adorable. Sometimes I will just sit and watch them play for hours and laugh to myself at the things they say and do. One of our favorite brands to help them with their imaginative play is Melissa and Doug. We have heaps of their play clothes and costumes, a play kitchen filled with their play food, and so much more. We were thrilled when they sent us a ton of Medieval themed clothes, food, and toys!
I love playing with my Nintendo DS so I was really excited to test out the new game, Miitopia. I had watched the trailer video for this game many times and already had it on my wish list. When it arrived I asked my mom to open it up right away. I then played it non-stop for about two days. It was all I could think about! This game is so much fun and I know any kid will love it!
