I have two daughters, ages 5 and 6, so when we choose shows involving superheroes to watch together, those shows usually involve female superheroes. They connect with them better, and honestly, I like them seeing girls be the strong ones for once. Mysticons is one of our favorite shows, which you can watch on Nickelodeon. It has been on for about 6 months and in that time has become a huge hit with us! Even my husband enjoys it!
Did you know that February is anime month? My family is big into anime, from Pokemon to Attack on Titan, we love it all! Cowboy Beebop is one of the first television shows I ever binged. That show helped my love for anime grow – and my husband and I passed that love on to our daughters. They might only be 5 and 6, but they enjoy shows like Yo Kai Watch and Pokemon more than most other shows they watch. Not to mention, they collect all of the toys and games.
My family loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is one of the shows that we enjoy watching all together – yes, even my husband. So naturally we were excited when the latest DVD was sent to us by Shout Factory Kids! The episodes on Spring Into Friendship are some of our favorites – so we were thrilled! My personal favorite of season 7 was Just for Sidekicks, so I was super excited to see that one on there. That being said, all of the episodes included are pretty amazing and loved by my whole family. Adding this My Little Pony DVD to our collection was a must.
Cartoon Network is one of my family’s favorite channels. There are several shows that we can watch all together and Steven Universe is one of them. In fact, we have been toying with the idea of dressing up as Steven, Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet for Halloween sometime. It works out perfectly since we are a family with three girls and one boy. When we found out that the entire first season of Steven Universe was going to be available on DVD, we were thrilled. Now, we have watched it all, but this way my daughters can watch it in the car on long trips, or in their rooms.
Recently I binge watched the first 4 seasons of Agents of SHIELD. Unfortunately I caught up to season 5 a little too late and now I have to wait for the first 3 episodes to resurface. Likely on Netflix once the whole season is over and that makes me very sad. Once I really got in to it, this easily became my favorite current drama. It is totally my own fault that I have to wait to see what happens to my favorite agents now. Anyways, these were my thoughts as I finished up season 4.
In this house, we love Disney. I think pretty much every one knows that. Because there are young girls in the house, Disney Junior is almost always on the TV. There are so many great shows, like Vampirina, that we all love to watch as a family. The Lion Guard is another family favorite so we were thrilled to see a new DVD release from them this week. The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar collects 5 of our favorite episodes (we are all suckers for a good villain like Scar) and is available now on DVD!
I grew up watching DuckTales, so when I heard that Disney was bringing it back, I was pretty excited. In fact, walking around Walt Disney World this summer, my whole family was singing “DuckTales Woo-oo!” wherever we went. I am thrilled to be able to bring my daughters up watching this show, since it meant so much to me when I was younger. Recently, we were sent an advance copy of DuckTales: Woo-oo, a special from the new season.
Everyone in my family is a HUGE Rapunzel fan. Tangled is hands down one of our favorite Disney movies. We watch it together at least once a month. A while back, when it was announced there was going to be a Tangled show, we were all thrilled! We tuned in on premiere night and have been hooked ever since. Tangled the Series: Queen for a Day is a special that aired in November. We loved it, so were super excited to get an advance copy of it on DVD! It hits stores December 12th – just in time to be the perfect stocking stuffer!
My family loves Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang. It just does not feel like the holidays until we watch their holiday movies. I was raised on Peanuts and am now raising my daughters on them as well. They are big fans of Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown! If you have someone like this in your life, allow me to tell you about 5 great Peanuts gifts! Plus, enter for a chance to win them all!
The Smiths are a family of Pokemon fanatics! My husband and I have been playing the video games since we were young kids, and now we are getting our girls started on them as well. At least once a week, we play the Pokemon Trading Card game as a family, and we are constantly battling each other in Sun and Moon on our Nintendo DSes. Because we are such huge fans, we were THRILLED to learn that GameStop and ThinkGeek are launching an exclusive Pokemon Center at their store locations and online!
