Disney Jr. Orders a 2nd Season of "SOFIA THE FIRST"



"Sofia the First" stories show young viewers just what makes a real princess -- the inner character of kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty and grace. Viewers follow as Princess Sofia, an ordinary little girl, learns how to adjust to royal life after her mom marries the king.

Kanter said, "We are so proud of the strong connection our young viewers and their parents have forged with Sofia. While she and her family live in a magical make-believe world, the storytelling and relatable everyday themes have struck a chord with our audience and has created demand not only for more stories, but to extend the 'Sofia the First' experience beyond the screen."

Extensions of the hit series include the illustrated storybook Sofia the First from Disney Press, and the record-breaking TV movie "Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess," which will be released on DVD by The Walt Disney Studios today. The "Sofia the First: Story Theater" app has held the #1 spot in the iPad and iPhone Books category five of the seven weeks it has been in the marketplace, and the "Sofia the First" soundtrack from Walt Disney Records is #1 on iTunes Top 10 Children's Albums chart and #2 on the Billboard's Kid Albums chart. An exclusive "Sofia the First" product line is in Disney Stores and a full "Sofia the First" line including apparel and toys will launch at major retailers nationwide this summer.

"Sofia the First" is also now a prominent part of the popular "Disney Junior Live on Stage!" attraction at Disney' Hollywood Studios in Florida and will be added to the attraction at Disney California Adventure later this month. The Sofia character is scheduled to make her Disney Parks debut this summer.

The TV series airs daily during the Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel and on the 24-hour Disney Junior channel. The series stars the voices of Ariel Winter as Sofia, the young princess in training; Sara Ramirez as Queen Miranda, Sofia's loyal and caring mother; Wayne Brady as Clover, Sofia's wise-talking rabbit sidekick, and Tim Gunn as Baileywick, the castle's royal steward. Craig Gerber ("Pixie Hollow Games") developed the series and serves as executive producer and story editor. Jamie Mitchell ("Special Agent Oso") is executive producer and director. John Kavanaugh ("Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo") serves as songwriter/music director and Kevin Kliesch ("Tangled Ever After") is the composer. "Sofia the First" is a production of Disney Television Animation.

Wonder Forge's "Who Shook Hook?" Game Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 3/21 (Rafflecopter)



The Today Show did a story last week about the "return of the board game." It's true! Board games are coming back in a big way. I think that it's because of our economy. But either way, it's great news for the old board games such as Monopoly, Uno, Life, Candyland, Clue, Scrabble, and others. But it's especially good news for New Board Games! My children LOVE playing board games! Spring Break starts next week for my son. They get two whole weeks off of school, and we will be playing board games inbetween our scheduled play dates!



They had so much fun playing the Who Shook Hook? game (based on the Jake and the Neverland Pirates show on Disney Jr.) from Wonder Forge, that they now want to play it every day. It's great for my five and a half year old son who is still trying to develop his fine motor skills. He needs to work the muscles in his hands to be able to write better and so that the muscles in his hands will be strong enough to cut things. The Who Shook Hook? game is perfect for children ages four and up. That's what the box says anyway. My three and a half year old daughter played this game with my son and I just fine. It doesn't require any reading, so it was perfect for her to count and play with us.


Who Shook Hook? game requires children to use small tools, tweezers, a sword, shovel, and a fishing pole to try to pick up objects off of the hammock that Captain Hook is sleeping on. It would be nice if the fishing pole was a little stronger and not come apart so easily, but I think that it was because my children both keep messing with it. Other than that, the game pieces and parts are very well made. It only takes a few minutes to set the game up too! Your children can help set the game up with you, or by themselves. As when Captain Hook and the barrels, treasure chests, etc. fall off of the hammock, it can lead to tons of laughter from my children. They think it's the funniest thing to push down on the hammock and send Hook and the game piece flying everywhere.

Check out more games from Wonder Forge on their website. The Who Shook Hook? game and others from Wonder Forge can be purchased on amazon, at Toys R Us, Target, Walmart, and more! Who Shook Hook and other games from Wonder Forge, are currently on sale at your local Target store! I found it for $14.99 yesterday!

SwaddleDesigns - Ultimate Receiving Blanket - Elephant and Chickies Review and Giveaway! (US/CAN) Ends 3/21 (Rafflecopter)



Swaddle Designs is introducing a NEW print called Elephant and Chickies! We got to review the Ultimate Receiving Blanket - Elephant and Blushing Rose Chickies. I really love this cute, soft, big swaddle blanket! It's quite bigger and a little heavier than regular, smaller receiving blankets created by other companies. Hailey and Chloe love it too. I think that Chloe is going to end up stealing it.

When our son was born in 2007, I had to have the nurse show me how to swaddle him probably about three times, before I understood how to do it. Back then, they wrapped the babies up so tight that trying to wake Matthew up to nurse was a huge ordeal. He was so warm and comfy, he didn't want to wake up to nurse. Little did I know, I should have let him sleep, at least up to four to six hours. I was told to wake him up every two hours to nurse. I decided to wake him up every three hours, and this did not make him very happy at all. But, we live and learn. Since then, we have learned that it's not good to swaddle our babies too tightly because it can cause damage to their hips. So make sure your doing it right!


Swaddle Designs receiving blankets are a new parent and celebrity favorite! Cotton Flannel blankets are the #1 choice for hospitals in the U.S.A. to use, to swaddle newborns. They are baby soft, lightweight and breathable. Swaddle Designs receiving blankets have multi-uses and they are versatile. They can be used as a sunshield, playmat for tummy time, privacy throw for breastfeeding, and more!


There are easy to follow swaddling instructions sewn on the edge of the blanket. Swaddle Designs swaddling blankets were designed by a nurse and they have won multiple awards. Swaddle Designs products are also all made in the U.S.A.


I swaddled Hailey to show you just how big this blanket is! She is 8 months old now and wearing 12 month clothing. This blanket is perfect for swaddling her! Especially when she's not feeling well or nothing makes her happy, swaddling her still works!

Benefits of Swaddling:
  • Decreases Risk of SIDS
  • Swaddled Babies Sleep Better
  • Reduces Colic and Fussiness
  • Helpful When Breastfeeding 
 

SwaddleDesigns also sells Disney, Angry Birds, and other printed swaddling blankets. They carry infant sleep sacks, burp clothes, receiving blankets, security blankets, bibs, infant clothing, organic products, gift sets, and more!


Spring and Summer are coming! Make sure to check out SwaddleDesigns SwaddleLite receiving blankets! The photo below is SwaddleDesigns Boats & Fish SwaddleLite - Pastel Blue (Set of 3). These blankets are lite weight and perfect for the warmer months of the year. Check out my review for the SwaddleLite blankets that I posted last year!

Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with SPF 15 Review!






I don't use a lot of make up. In fact, I hardly use it at all. My I do use sunscreen from time to time. I will be 38 years old this week, on Thursday. I am noticing that my skin and face is aging. I am alright with most of it, as I don't mind looking like my mother. I love her face, and I don't mind the wrinkles too much. But if I can find a product like Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer to help slow the process, then for sure, I will be trying it out! I did notice a change in the tone and color of my skin while using this product. I did not take before and after photos because I haven't been getting much sleep lately. My now, eight month old daughter has been sick, and so has my five and three year olds too. I hope that you try out the Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with SPF 15. I also hope that your skin benefits from using it, as much as mine has. Below is some information about this product.

Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15, fights fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone, age spots, and dryness. At the same time, it also works to improve surface cell turnover with gentle exfoliation, strengthen skin’s natural defense against moisture loss, and recapture youthful luminosity. It also hydrates for up to 24 hours with a splash of sheer color to help you say bye-bye to blotches and imperfections. 


This all-in-one triple stream formula helps fight the seven signs of aging with a vitamin-rich complex that combines a daily anti-aging moisturizer and sheer tint for younger-looking even-toned skin.

Total Effects Fights 7 Signs of Aging:

1) Fine lines and wrinkles: reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

2) Uneven Tone: balances and helps even out tone

3) Age Spots: reduces appearance of discoloration

4) Gentle Exfoliation: Improves surface cell turnover

5) Dryness: provides nourishing moisturization

6) Moisture Barrier: strengthens skin's natural defense against moisture loss

7) Luminosity: recaptures youthful luminosity
