Some of our Golden Books Collection

Some of my fondest memories from childhood involve reading Little Golden Books.
There was nothing like sitting down with my colorful little book and sailing away on an imagined adventure.

I am thrilled to see that Disney Publishing and Random House are bringing us the first six Star Wars films colorfully presented as Little Golden Books.

A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi

Phantom Menace
Revenge of the Sith
Attack of the Clones

 I can't wait to get these books for our collection.  Has anyone read any of the new Star Wars titles?

We would love to hear what you think!

Descendants Review

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

I'd say the Descendants was a hit!  

According to Nielsen, over 10.5 million viewers agreed!

My 8 year old son summed it up best:
"I love the villains, but why are the good kids kind of "silly?"
Disney laid on the "hokey" a bit thick.  The children of some of our favorite Disney Icons came off sheltered and very whiny even to an 8 year old.  

The children of the villians however...rocked!

The best scene in the movie is the opening scene where the so called "Villans" sing "Bad to the Core."  The song is so catchy that my son is wearing out my DVR playing it over and over.

You can catch it here:

I see a lot of future stars coming out of Descendants.  Three special shout outs to the show stealers:

Mal (Dove Cameron) is adorable.  She can sing, dance and did I mention she is adorable?
Ben (Mitchell Hope) reminds me of a young Matt Damon and oozes charm.
Jay (BooBoo Stewart) Seth Clearwater from the Twilight movies is fun and sporty as Jafar's son.
Kristin Chenoweth---Enough said!

If you saw Descendants and can't get enough don't worry the animated short-form series Descendants Wicked World premieres Friday, September 18 on Disney Channel.

Get the popcorn ready!  
We are so excited to watch the premiere of The Descendants on the Disney Channel tonight at 8p!

In case you haven't heard, the Descendants is a music-driven live action movie set in the kingdom of Auradon.  It follows the adolescent offspring of evil Disney villains as they meet children of the good.  

Especially exciting is that Emmy award winning Kenny Ortega (of High School Musical fame!) is directing, producing and choreographing the movie.

Disney Dolls

Friday, July 24, 2015

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to preview fantastic new Disney items during the Disney Consumer Products Holiday Showcase in NYC.  I was thrilled to see a bunch of new doll collections front and center.

I love dolls!  I especially love Disney dolls so these beauties had my head spinning!  All I could think of is the damage that my credit cards are going to suffer when these items hit the Disney Store.

I have not even seen the movie yet, but I know that I need every one of these Descendants dolls:

Look at the hair!  LOVE!!

If you love the Animator doll collection as much as I do, you are going to freak out over this complete collection of miniatures!  They are adorable.  Even the hard to come by Kristoff is included!

These Anna & Elsa Twin Animator Dolls are going to delight all Frozen fans!

Will you be adding any of these new dolls to your collection or are there still older ones that you lust after?
