Disney’s Oscar-winning “Big Hero 6″ is now available for home viewing

We don’t take our girls to see movies at the theatre very often, but we made an exception for Disney’s “Big Hero 6″ when it was on the big screen! Now an Academy Award-winning movie (for Best Animated Feature Film), and featuring Best Animated Short Film “Feast”, this Blu-rayTM Combo Pack is sure to be a hit in your home too.

This book is very silly, a little gross at times, and never fails to make the girls laugh. I think “The Mischevians” will be the Read more […]

Get kids moving with LeapBand

It’s February and I’m officially in the middle of my annual “winter is never going to end and I’m out of ideas for engaging my children” rough patch. Finding new, fun ways to keep us all entertained can be tricky, especially for my 3 year old when her big sister is at school and I have my own homework to get done. One fun way to help her stay active is by using our new LeapBand from LeapFrog! In case you aren’t familiar with the LeapBand, it is “the only activity tracker made for kids that Read more […]
