Kids Will Love Kate and Mim-Mim: Super Kate – on DVD 8/8! | #DisneyJr #KateAndMimMim

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.

LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain Hits Stores 8/8! | #DCSuperHeroGirls

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!

Summer Isn’t Over Yet: Keep It Going with Nintendo New Releases! | #Nintendo #Gaming

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to spend the last few weeks than playing video games with your family? My husband and I both have Nintendo 3DS’ and my daughters have Nintendo 2DS’. I cannot even explain how much I enjoy a lazy Sunday with the 4 of us lounging around the house playing video games together. We like to race in Mario Kart – and of course Quick Link Battle in Pokemon Sun and Moon. We also help each other fill our Pokedexes by trading rare Pokemon to each other. Because I love these systems so much, I want to tell you about a couple fun and exciting new releases!

Room on the Broom Comes to DVD August 8 | #RoomOnTheBroom #Giveaway

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!

Some of these songs date back to when I was a little girl – and some of them are brand new hits from movies like Cars 3 and Descendants 2!

Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and The Wasp Starts Production | #AntManAndTheWasp

Marvel Studios announced today that production has begun on “Ant-Man and The Wasp and I am beyond excited! I loved the first movie – despite being a tad bit nervous about it. As you know, I am a comic book girl, and so I prefer the Hank Pym version of Ant-Man. I was hoping to see a movie revolved more around him when it was first announced, but we ended up with a focus on Scott Lang. All that being said, I would not change a thing. Paul Rudd is PERFECT as Scott. Ant-Man is one of the funniest Marvel movies (right up there with both Guardians) and I have seen it more times than I can count.

Playmates Toys Introduces New TMNT Samurai Figures + Win An Autographed Usagi Yojimbo | #TMNT #Giveaway

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!

Dryel 101: How to Dry Clean Your Clothes – at Home! | #Dryel

If you are like me, then you have a lot of nice clothes. I enjoy wearing dresses and nice shirts even though I do not work out of the home. My husband also wears a lot of dress clothes because of his work – he is an instructor at a Nuclear Power Plant. We want to ensure our clothes stay nice, but taking them to the dry cleaners can be expensive and time consuming. However, now that we discovered Dryel, our home is our dry cleaners!

Family Game Night is a Blast with These Fun Games! | #FamilyGameNight

One of our favorite things to do together as a family is play games. We try to have a family game night at least once a week, but sometimes more. In the summer, I spend a lot of days just playing games with the girls. Yes, like the whole day. It is so much fun and great family bonding time. My mother and niece were visiting this summer for a few weeks, and we spent a lot of time checking out some new games. These few really stood out as great family games. So if you are looking to add some to your collection, check these out!

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!

Enter to Win 2 Seasons of Brand New NCircle Entertainment DVDs | #THBHop #NCircle

My girls and I love binge watching our favorite shows. Recently, NCircle Entertainment released a full season of two super fun kids shows – Kiwi and Mily Miss. We were lucky enough to get copies of both and they quickly became favorites in our house. My 4 year old just LOVES Kiwi and my 6 year old is a huge fan of Mily Miss. These shows are not only entertaining, they are educational. I love how much my girls have learned from watching these shows – and I highly recommend them.
