Mail Order Mystery is something that I stumbled upon thanks to a sponsored ad that popped up in my Facebook feed. When I saw it, I had to check it out, and when I learned that it was exactly what it sounded like - a mystery that is mailed in installments geared towards kids 8+ (or 6-7 with some help) - and that it was Canadian, I had to contact them to set up a feature.

Cloud b is a family favourite for a reason! We gave my nephew the Peaceful Panda when he was born in October and I hear that it gets used every night.

I am so happy to say that all three of us loved Moana! I'll talk more about it Read more [...]
Disney's Alice Through the Looking Glass has arrived for home viewing just in time for the holidays. I'm sure that we weren't the only ones singing P!nk's "Just Like Fire", which is Alice Through the Looking Glass's theme song, all summer long!
