True story: back when I was in university, my roommates and I used to write down when our favourite holiday movies were on tv so that we could all procrastinate watch together. This was back in the dark ages before PVRs and time shifting when you only had one chance to catch a show or you missed out completely. Now you can record television easily but the odd glitch (ie me deleting our entire PVR instead of the one show I intended to) means I like to have our favourite movies on DVD for safekeeping.

There are some brands that I turn to time and again because you know that they make an excellent quality product at a price that makes sense. Melissa and Doug is one of my 'go to' brands for toys for my girls and gifts for others!
