Which Fairy Are You?


Disney has released of SECRET OF THE WINGS, 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download on October 23rd! Your favorite Disney fairies have brought along some of their new fairy friends to meet you! Check out the clip to see them in action and take the quiz below to learn more about the fairies and find out which one you’re most like. 
 Tinker Bell and her friends embark on a new adventure into the never-before-seen mysterious Winter Woods, where Tink finds out that she has a sister and discovers other incredible secrets that will change her life forever.

If you want to follow in the ‘footprints’ of this adventurous pair and find out how to have your own fun in the snow, look no further. But do remember to wear your mittens!

MAKE A SNOWFAIRYWhen the snow on the ground is thick or powdery, lie flat on your back with your arms and legs drawn tightly into your body.Then move your arms in and out as if you are flapping your wings. Do the same with your legs! Stand and admire your work. Does the shape you’ve left behind look a bit like a fairy?
CATCH SNOWFLAKES ON YOUR TONGUEHave you ever felt snow on your tongue? Wait until the snow is falling heavily, lift yourface to the sky and stick out your tongue! The frosty snow will make it tingly!
HOW TO HAVE A SNOWBALL FIGHT!With a grown-up, scoop up a handful of clean, powdery snow and roll it into a ball no bigger than the size of a tennis ball. Then, once it’s rolled, throw it at your opponent! Remember to only do this with snow that is dusty and powdery, and never aim your snowball at anyone’s head! Make sure you wear mittens or gloves to keep your hands warm!
GO SLEDDINGWith a grown-up, find a gentle slope and position your sled heading downhill. Sit down and hold tight. On the count of three push yourself off! You’ll be whizzing and whirring until you reach the bottom. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a sled, you can use a flat sheet of cardboard! 
BUILD A SNOWFAIRY You may have built a snowman before, but have you ever built a snowfairy? Have a go at making your own winter fairy like Periwinkle. Layer the snow to build the body, and finally add another snowy mound for her head.
With your parents ok, use silver spray paint to decorate her hair. Wait until the sun shines on your new friend and you’ll see how she magically sparkles and shimmers! Don’t forget to add wings you might make from some fallen tree branches and leaves!

Our family was lucky enough to have watched this film at the movie theater in a special screening. We really loved it, especially our 4 year old daughter, the animation was beautiful and the movie was well written! You should definitely add this movie to your Christmas list for your little fairy. I know your little fairy will love it!

PlayMobil Take Along Soccer Match- {Review/Giveaway} CLOSED






Our kids love sports,  we don't currently have them involved right now, but we will soon.  They definitely were thrilled when they saw the Playmobil Take Along Soccer Match ($59.99). I was very excited to have a toy that they could take along that doesn't require a lot of space because it folds up.  I am the type of mom that doesn't allow too much television in our home and this type of toy,  is a great alternative to all the new and expensive electronic gadgets.

Playmobil toys in my opinion are well-made and sturdy. My daughters and sons have enjoyed having this new toy.

  • Perfect for summer travel, this compactable and travel-ready Take Along Soccer Match includes a 22 x 33 inch field, soccer ball and other accessories.
  • To further enhance the soccer experience, the figures have a leg that kicks to propel the ball forward, which helps make playtime more realistic.
  • There are also goalie figures that connect to goal joystick, which allows kids to control the goalies’ movements from behind the goal net.
  • The PLAYMOBIL Take Along Soccer Match is ideal for kids ages five to ten; because of small parts it is not recommended for little ones under the age of three.
Visit Playmobilusa.com to redeem the coupon code US72A12C for 20% off Playmobil Take Along items.






This game is for ages 5-10 because there are some choking hazards for children 3 and under.  I would definitely recommend this for a Christmas gift. 

You can find Playmobil products and information here:

Doc McStuffins: Friendship is the Best Medicine ~ Review

My kids had only seen one episode of Doc McStuffins on Disney Jr. previously,  because we don't have cable TV. I have 6 children ages 2-10 years old. Our 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son definitely enjoy this adorable animated series the most, so it's definitely fun for this age group.

We loved how the main character, 6 year old doctor African American character Doc McStuffins, helps to heal and treat her toy friends from all around her neighborhood. Her mother happens to be a doctor, and Doc McStuffins gets help from her mother from time to time.

As a parent, the idea for the story is just what we look for in a children's animated series. Imagination at play, hand in hand with education.

What child didn't grow up playing doctor? My kids have definitely enjoyed playing doctor and this series does a great job encouraging role model play. Added bonus is how the creators of the show has interaction with the audience by asking them to help solve problems with the patients so that Doc McStuffins can heal them.

Be sure to check out this great kids show on Disney Jr.! Your family will enjoy it!

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 Viva La Fiesta~Review

Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 will have your little ones entertained. The third installment of Beverly Hills Chihuahua definitely will be a cherished movie for our family.  The voice of Papi the dog (George Lopez) as the father of the puppies, is hilarious as always in this delightful family film.  It amazed us at how these puppes and dogs are so well trained to act in this adorable comedy.  Who doesn't love a Chihuahua?


I am sure parents will enjoy learning a bit about the traditional Mexican Quincenera in the storyline when Rosita the pup prepares to celebrate this important milestone. Chloe (Odette Annable) the pups mom is offered a great opportunity to be a Hotel's model for advertising purposes,  along with an offer for their owner to have a great job at the same Hotel. Soon Papi and his brother Pedro (Ernie Hudson),  discover a plan by a foe to ruin their families lives financially.



Our children have this movie in the favorite movie bin.  I definitely love that this movie is great for all ages.  I am a bit strict when it comes to movie choices.  I thoroughly enjoyed this review and movie and so did our kids.  I am sure you and your children will too.

Fans who fell in love with Papi and Chloe in the box office hit “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” and their universally beloved litter of pups in “Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2” (the #1 direct-to-video title of 2011*), will enjoy this exciting and playful new installment in the pedigreed franchise.
