Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph is finally available today on Blu-ray and DVD and my boys couldn’t be happier! In fact, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the chance to check out this movie for myself after hearing it being heralded as one of the most original and entertaining movies in years. Here’s a brief synopsis:
For decades, Ralph has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. Then, when an evil enemy threatens their world, Ralph realizes he holds the fate of the entire arcade in his massive hands.
It was obvious even from the previews that this would be a movie more for school-aged children but Benjamin is pretty good about sitting down and watching movies with Zackary and me even when they’re a bit over his head. And after the first fifteen minutes, it was obvious that Zackary and I were both going to be big fans of this movie. With tons of references to video games that we all love, it was the perfect choice for a game-loving family. [Read more...]
I have been a fan of Subway restaurants ever since I was a teenager. I love being able to pile my favourite sandwich with all kinds of delicious fresh vegetables and on a busy day, I appreciate having a fast-food alternative that’s healthier than the standard burger and fries. Thanks to the fun Kids Pak meals, my boys love eating at Subway just as much as I do and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Now the Subway Kids Pak meals are even more fun thanks to the company’s new partnership with Disney! Kids Pak meals now come in a reusable Disney bag with a fun Disney toy for kids to enjoy. I recently received some Subway gift cards so that Zackary, Benjamin and I could have lunch and check out the new toys and I was almost as excited about it as my boys. [Read more...]
After years of wild inventions, crazy capers and thwarted evil schemes, Disney’s Phineas and Ferb, the loveable brothers on a mission to make the most of their summer vacation, are making the jump to the stage in Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! From the first time I saw an episode of this imaginative Disney series, I was hooked on the unique blend of creativity, quick humour and music that fills every episode. And in just a few weeks, my boys and I will be able to enjoy all those things up close and in person! Here’s a brief synopsis of the show:
“Mom! Phineas and Ferb are going on a LIVE tour!!!” School’s out for summer and anything is possible as Phineas and Ferb create their biggest invention yet- Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever! Phineas, Ferb, and the whole Tri-State Area gang embark on a bold escape jumping out from behind your TV and onto the stage in a live action adventure-right in your hometown! And, before you can wonder, “Hey, where’s Perry?” the beloved pet platypus shifts to his secret double life as Agent P to foil another one of Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s evil plans. Musical madness abounds in an escapade so awesome that even Candace can’t help but join the hilarious hijinks. It’s the ultimate end to summer vacation, so seize the day ’cause Phineas and Ferb are gonna do it all! [Read more...]
We got the Disney Cuddly Body suit just as we were getting ready to leave for a weekend at Grandma’s, so naturally I had to put it on Chase that very second. When we arrived at Grandma’s the whole family commented on how cute (and huggable) baby Chase looked in his new onesie. He was at the stage where he was starting to get in everything, so by the time he went to bed that night, his new white outfit was filthy!
Now I have a baby who runs very hot. The fact he made it through the day in the same outfit is a miracle in itself. Most days this summer he stays naked and if we do put him in some clothes, he’ll soak through in a few hours with sweat. I like that Disney makes their Cuddly Bodysuits with breathable, 100% cotton so that when we have to put clothes on to leave the house, my baby stays cool and comfortable. Since it is made with cotton and is machine washable, I was a little worried that when I washed the dirty outfit for the first time, it might shrink and not fit baby Chase anymore. Disney Baby is smart though, and its Cuddly Bodysuits hold their shape after repeated washing and experience very minimal shrinkage so that it will fit baby until he actually grows out of it (which I wish I could say for the rest of Chase’s clothes…)! These bodysuits are available in sizes 0-9 months, but they feature ingenious Grow-An-Inch Snaps™ so your little one can wear the cuddly suit for even longer! And the nice wide neck opening makes putting on the bodysuit easy for moms and babies! [Read more...]
