Gearing Up for Marvel's Avenger's Age of Ultron

As we are all getting ready for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron to arrive in theaters, Disney Consumer Products and Marvel are showcasing some exciting and super cool merchandise for fans of all ages.

From the coolest toys to everyday style, here are some of my favorite products.

If Barbie can have her dream house, why can't the Earth's Mightiest Heroes have their own place to call home. I imagine kids would play for hours coming up with new adventures for each Marvel Hero.

I think kids (and adults) of all ages are still crazy for LEGO products. How cool would it be to build your own Quinjet and even customize it to best suit the Avenger's next exciting adventure?!

Joffrey's Coffee Kiosks at Walt Disney World

I am not a morning person but when I am at Disney I get up early, real early! 
I know the importance of getting to the parks and hitting my favorite rides to avoid long lines.

 First stop? Joffrey's for a caffeine fix!

Disney Store Event for the film release of Monkey Kingdom

For the past few years, Earth Day has been a prominent day for Disney to celebrate the Earth, its inhabitants, and environments. Well this year is no different.

This Earth Day, Disney Stores invites guests to celebrate and protect our planet with a free reusable bag giveaway. Each guest who visits a local Disney Store on Wednesday, April 22nd, will receive a free reusable Monkey Kingdom shopping tote with any purchase (up to 200 totes, one per guest per store).

The free reusable tote features a design inspired by the new film from Walt Disney Studio's Disneynature, Monkey Kingdom, in theaters Friday April 17th.  The reusable tote is made of 80% recycled materials.

Monkey Kingdom is the sixth theatrical release from Disneynature and follows the adventures of a new mom named Maya, who is a clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey. She is determined to give her newborn son a "leg up" in the world. Through



In addition to the reusable tote program, Disney Store will donate $1 to Conservation International for every Disneynature plush purchased between March 13th through May 14th, 2015. In addition to those donations, every ticket sold for opening week, Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.


Is this the first time you hear about Monkey Kingdom? Check out the trailer below!


What will you be doing to celebrate Earth Day? Will you be going to see Monkey Kingdom?

New Wonder Forge Games Perfect For This Easter & Passover Holiday


As the Easter and Passover holiday season quickly approaches, we think of egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and jellybeans, this is the time for families to come together and share special moments. What better way than to play some fun games together!

The wonderful people over at Wonder Forge sent me the following four games for review. I have to say, my family had a blast. These NEW games that will be available in April have gorgeous color artwork from some of the family favorites such as Frozen, Doc McStuffins, Peanuts, and Marvel. There is something for every preschooler on your list.

Here's the skinny on the new games:

Disney Frozen Matching Game On-The-Go Edition
Ages 3+




"Flip over brightly colored tiles and find beautiful pictures of sisters Anna and Elsa, plus friends Kristoff, Olaf, Sven and more. What familiar faces will you see? Pick up the most matching pairs to win!"

For some extra fun, each of us would say a line from the film whenever a character was revealed. Let's just say Oaken had everyone saying, "Yoo Hoo"!

Diseny's Doc McStuffins Mix Up Fix Up Game
Ages 3+
$14.99


"Can you cure the mystery boo-boo like Doc McStuffins? Use deduction to figure out what will help Lambie, Stuffy, Chilly, and friends feel all better! Collect the most bandages to win. Put your problem solving skills to the test with this clever guessing game!"


Marvel Dominoes Game
Ages 3+


"It’s a superhero twist on classic dominoes, with daring portraits of your favorite Marvel characters to collect and connect!"

If you only have two players in a game, raise the amount of domino pieces given to each player from 5 to 10.


Peanuts Surprise Slides Game
Ages
$11.99




"Time flies when you are having fun with the colorful character of PEANUTS®! Zing through Srping, race past Summer, fly through Fall, and skate across Winter! Shortcut slides zoom you ahead...or fling you backward! You'll never know when the seasons will mix and flip, filling the year with surprises. It's a different game board every time you play!"


One of the best features for each of these games is clean up. I remember growing up, most of the pieces for a board game would somehow get lost since there was no way to keep all the pieces together. Wonder Forge games have games that are easy to pack and some even have baggies to keep small game pieces from getting lost.
