I remember sitting in a movie theater with my new husband and seeing a trailer for Adventure Time. Because of that trailer we made a point to check out Adventure Time when it first aired in 2010. Since then, we have gone through a lot – had two kids – but Adventure Time has always stayed constant. It is something we have watched religiously, with our children, and I am crushed it is coming to an end. We were lucky enough to be sent a copy of the final DVD set, which includes the series finale. This finale will air on September 3rd and it totally delivers.
My daughters, especially my 5 year old, love PJ Masks. In fact, for my daughter’s third birthday she had a PJ Masks themed party – complete with an adorable cake! It is because of their love for PJ Masks that I am proud to be a PJ Masks ambassador! PJ Masks airs on Disney Junior and is a show that I actually enjoy watching with my daughters too.
Like so many others, I grew up watching the Muppets. I remember when Muppet Babies first came out, and I watch it all the time. I was so excited to see that it was being brought back this year so that I could enjoy it with my young daughters. This show airs on Disney Junior and is something we watch together as a family. My girls and I were thrilled when the new DVD, Muppet Babies: Time To Play! arrived at our front door. Bring yours home today!
My daughters LOVE Elena of Avalor. Every time we go to Disney World, which is a lot, they just HAVE to meet her. My youngest will binge watch her show over and over. I think she actually knows every word by heart. Every single word – of the series. So when we were sent an advance copy of the latest DVD, Realm of the Jaquins, we were thrilled. It was opened and put in the DVD player immediately. And then it made its way to the mini-van where it is now on repeat.
The season finale of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger was last night and it blew me away. Full warning, this article has some minor spoilers. Minor meaning what I am going to touch on is a big deal – for Season 2. It will give away a character we lost in this episode and touch on a new one that was introduced. So if you have not seen this episode yet and want to go in to it completely in the dark, stop reading now. If not, keep on going.
My girls are getting a little older – they are 5 and 7 now. My husband and I know that it is only a matter of time before they are out of the house, so we have family time every night. We play games, but we also cuddle up and watch a show or two. One of our favorite series to watch is Steven Universe. It is something that the entire family can enjoy. It is appropriate for kids, but the plot is really entertaining to adults. We were excited to get an advance copy of the latest DVD, Steven Universe: The Heart of the Crystal Gems, and we binged it in just two days. Yes, it was that good.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger hooked me from the first few minutes, and I haven’t looked back since. You probably know I am a huge Marvel comics fan, but some heroes I have never known much about are Cloak and Dagger. I love when they pop in to help save the day in crossover events – but I have never checked out their stand alone comics. From what I do know, their origin differs from what we see in this show, but Freeform is killing it with their interpretation. The season finale airs next week (August 2nd), and if you haven’t watched the show yet, get ready to binge all 9 episodes.
I don’t know about your family, but mine is always on the edge of their seat waiting for Shark Week to come to TV! To help celebrate I am letting you know about some of our favorite shark related toys and DVDs. And then, I am going to give a Shark Week package away to one lucky reader! Good luck – and stay out of the water this week (yikes!).
San Diego Comic-Con is this weekend and I wanted to be there more than anything but it is Grandmother’s surprise 90th birthday party and that takes precedence. Boo. I will be trying my best to keep up with trailers (check out my YouTube channel for all the trailer reaction videos) and news. I will be sharing what I can here, as quickly as possible. So if you don’t want to miss any of my reaction videos, bookmark this page and come periodically.
I remember when my daughters got their first Fancy Nancy book. It was a Halloween one and we must have read it at least ten times that night. They were immediately hooked on her and honestly, I can’t blame them. She is fun and spunky, just like they are. Not to mention her incredible sense of fashion! So when I heard that Disney Junior was going to have a Fancy Nancy show, I knew we would be tuning in for every episode! While in LA recently, I was lucky enough to watch two episodes as well as chat with Executive Producer/Director Jamie Mitchell and Story Editor Krista Tucker. Here are 10 fun facts about Disney Junior’s Fancy Nancy that I learned from this interview.
