BRAND NEW Hatchimals Surprise: It’s TWINS! + Hatching Video! | #Hatchimals #HatchimalsSurprise

My husband and I totally lucked out and pre-ordered Hatchimals last year as soon as we heard about them. We had a feeling they were going to be one of the hottest toys for Christmas – and we were right! When they arrived at our house, our daughters went crazy. At the time, they were 3 and 5, and had said they found their best friends for life. We had a blast unboxing them and my girls have played with them nearly every day since. So when we heard that Spin Master had something up their sleeve for this holiday season – we just couldn’t wait to hear more.

Own Disney’s Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary on DVD Now! | #Disney #MickeyMouse

Whenever we go to Walt Disney World or on a Disney Cruise, one of our favorite things to do is watch the cartoons on the TV. So imagine how excited we were to see that a bunch of Halloween & Christmas themed ones were put on to a DVD. When we were sent a copy of Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary, we opened it right up and put it on. Watching these cartoons totally transported us back to Disney World, and we felt like we were really there again. I just know this DVD will be watched whenever we are missing it there (which is all the time!).

Win A Copy Of Bruce’s Big Move + A $50 Gift Card | #BrucesBigMove #FollowBruce

One of my favorite things to do with my girls is cuddle up and read a good book. It is something that we look forward to doing almost every day as a family. Recently, we received an advance copy of Bruce’s Big Move from Disney-Hyperion, and I must say, we loved it right away. The story itself is cute and funny – and we can’t help but love the grumpy bear Bruce. It even teaches a great lesson to kids – there’s no place like home.

Brand New Trailer & Poster for Disney•Pixar’s COCO Revealed! | #PixarCoco #DisneyPixar

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.
