I grew up watching the Doozers on Fraggle Rock. They were my favorite part of the show from the first time I saw them. Always diligently working – and they were so cute! My husband has told me that they were his favorite too. I always wanted to delve further in to their lives and now there are two new DVDs that will let you do that! My girls loved watching these – in fact, the whole family did! They really brought back memories to my husband and I and they are perfect for any family movie night. These fun DVDs from NCircle Entertainment are available only at Target – so head to your local store or enter to win below!
I have loved everything Disney ever since I was a little girl. For me, the magic never ended. This October I am heading to Disney World for the 15th time and I cannot wait. My husband says that the second we cross under that arch, I turn into a 5 year old again. My eyes tear up and I have the biggest smile on my face. I have no problem waiting in line for hours to meet my favorite characters and I love chatting with them. It truly is the most magical place on Earth for me and I am counting the days (71!!) to take my daughters for their second time. However, I have always wanted to go to Disneyland – to see where Walt walked, to see where it all started – it has just never been in the cards for me. Until now.

When I was in LA for the Inside Out premiere, one of the things that I got to do was attend a taping of Celebrity Family Feud. It was so surreal to walk on to that set and I loved it. The day has finally come and the taping that I attended with 24 other amazing bloggers is airing tonight! I cannot wait to relive my experience there. The episode is sure to be hilarious. I was cracking up the entire time.
I already could not wait to go to D23 next month and then I read about the new collections that the Disney Store will be featuring there. I told myself well I can’t spend too much money because I have to fly back – and then I heard that USPS will be on hand to ship items back to your home for you. Well, guess I will be spending a ton of money there, but hey, that’s OK. I am a collector by nature. I have many different collections and I cannot wait to add to them at D23! Read all about it below.
Peppa Pig: Sandcastles launched TODAY on iTunes from Entertainment One and so of course, my daughters and I had to check it out. They love Peppa Pig (and I must admit that my husband and I do too). We all crack up during the opening when Papa Pig snorts – every time. This is a family favorite of ours and I am so excited to tell you guys all about these episodes. And guess what, I even have a chance for you to win Peppa Pig: Sandcastles on iTunes thanks to eOne! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at a few of these episodes last week and have watched them time and time again since then. My daughters say they are their favorite Peppa Pig episodes now!
We love Hasbro and My Little Pony in our house so imagine the excitement when I found out that Hasbro has teamed with youth service movement generationOn for a day-long celebration that encourages and empowers kids around the world to make their mark on friendship through volunteerism! I strongly believe that this is something super important for kids to learn and am really excited to celebrate #MLPFriendshipDay this year with my young daughters! It is really easy to participate – just act the way your fellow pony friends would – by getting involved in simple service projects and performing acts of kindness that help others while strengthening the bond of friendship.
I grew up watching Reading Rainbow. Just ask my mom, whenever you saw me, I most likely had a book in my hand. I think my love of reading is what really sparked my love for this series. I thought it was really cool to see my favorite books come to life – and my inner nerd loves LaVar Burton of course (even though I would pick Star Wars over Star Trek any day!). I recently received a Reading Ranbow DVD (If You Give A Mouse A Cookie) and was thrilled to share it with my girls. They loved it! So much so that when they saw Animal Cafe arrive, they asked if we could watch it. Lucky for them we were on our way to a mini-vacation about an hour and a half away so they got to watch it on the ride in the car. We even watched it again on the way back!
