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!
One of the shows that my girls LOVE is PJ Masks. This show is super fun and airs on Disney Junior. Since the moment it came out, it has been a hit in our home. It focuses around three kids that become superheroes at night. There are some other kids that become villains. This is one of the shows that I can sit and watch with my girls and get totally in to. It is funny, entertaining, and even teaches kids some pretty great lessons. PJ Masks: Time to Be A Hero is out on DVD now – and we highly recommend it.
One thing all kids like is stuffed animals. I will admit it, I even have a few stuffed animals that sit on my bed and the couch in my office. I asked my daughters to come up with a list of 5 stuffed animals that they have that are their favorites. It was basically no contest for them – these are their top 5!
My youngest daughter is going off to all day Preschool starting in September. Because of this, we are really taking advantage of the summer. We have traveled around a lot – and have spent many afternoons packing up lunch and having a picnic together. This is one of our favorite things to do on a nice warm day. Living in upstate New York, we have to enjoy the nice weather while we can.

My girls LOVE everything My Little Pony. Most of their favorite movies are Equestria Girls movies and so they were thrilled to learn the Equestria Girls are back for a magic-filled triple feature! We received an advance copy of My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Magical Movie Night and my daughters were over the moon! We watched it almost immediately – and then again and again. I admit, I really enjoyed this as well! It is a great family movie for any My Little Pony fans!
From the moment we saw the first trailer, my girls’ were anxious to see Boss Baby. When it hit theaters, we took them to see it on opening weekend. They were jumping and down while we waiting to go in and could not. Wait through the entire movie, they had smiles on their faces. They kept asking my husband and I if we saw certain parts of the movie and wanted to make sure that we did not miss anything. After Boss Baby ended, they asked us if they could watch it again. Right away. Every single time we went to the movies after that they asked if we were going to see Boss Baby.
My girls are obsessed with Kate and Mim-Mim. We watch the show all the time. They also have several toys that they play with and re-enact their favorite episodes. So they were thrilled to hear about the latest DVD release – Kate and Mim-Mim: Super Kate. This DVD features four of our favorite stories from the popular kids series “Kate & Mim-Mim”. We received an advance copy and have already watched it over and over and over. It quickly found a home in our mini-van for longer car rides.
As you probably know by now, I have two young girls. They are 4 and 6 years old right now and they are huge geeks, just like their mama! Because of this, they are big in to comic books and super heroes. One of their favorite shows and movies to watch is anything that has to do with the DC Super Hero Girls. I love this as well because it gives them great figures to look up to – and of course, I love anything comic book related as well. The DC Super Hero Girls are strong, independent women, so who better for them to place on a pedestal? The latest DVD release, LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain, hits stores on August 8th – and it is amazing!
One of my favorite things to do with my daughters is cuddle up and read stories. Lately, one of our absolute favorites has been Room on the Broom. My girls are in to everything and anything spooky right now. Halloween is their favorite holiday. So it makes sense that they fell in love with this book because it all about a witch. When I told the girls there is a DVD of this story, they were thrilled. When an advance copy showed up at our door, they asked to watch it right away. And we all loved it!
My husband and I grew up watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was always one of my favorite shows, and his too! So when we had kids, of course we introduced them too it. Both girls have seen the old cartoons (and love them) but one of our favorite things to do as a family is watch the new ones. We record them on the DVR and sit down and watch them all together – as a family. We all have a favorite turtle, but there is on character that always stands out to us – Usagi Yojimbo! Usagi is a Samurai bunny rabbit and he is amazingly awesome. We wish he was a regular, but the fact that he is in a three party story arc right now, is going to have to do!
We are huge Disney fans in this family. So anything that has to do with Disney, we are all about it. Cars 3 just recently came to theaters – and we saw it opening weekend. It is definitely a movie that we will be picking up when it hits DVD and Blu-ray. Dare I say that it is my favorite of the Cars series? I think so! Naturally we were all thrilled when Spin Master Games sent us Cars 3 Thunder Hollow Mud Madness. We just could not wait to play it!
