Happy Holidays, Garfield! Available on DVD

We received the following products for review purposes.  All opinions are our own.

When I was younger, we would gather around the TV every holiday season for the classics.  In the past it was always a boy and his dog.  This year I'm adding a big cat and his dog to our rotation!  Garfield and Odie's Happy Holidays collection is a perfect fit for our watching. 


The DVD features these two fun-filled holiday episodes:

Garfield’s Thanksgiving
Jon Arbuckle invites veterinarian Liz to celebrate Thanksgiving with him, Garfield, and Odie! But Jon has no clue how to prepare a Thanksgiving meal and even worse—Liz declares that Garfield must be put on a diet… on the day before Thanksgiving! Will anyone come to the rescue and cook a delicious dinner for Jon and Liz?

A Garfield Christmas Special
Garfield gives Grandma love notes he found that were written by her husband, from when they first met. That thoughtful gift shows Garfield that Christmas isn’t about eating lasagna or receiving presents—it’s about spending time with your family and making others happy!

Happy Holidays, Garfield is available everywhere on DVD!  Grab a copy and share some cocoa!

Wild Kratts: Wild Winter Creatures! Available on DVD

We received the following products for review purposes.  All opinions are our own.

My children and I have been watching Wild Kratts since they were ages 4 and 2.  We love the adventures the Kratt brothers find themselves on.  We expected no less with this title.  Popcorn was popped and the couch filled up with bodies as we sat together and enjoyed the whole thing!  My favorite part was Polar Bears Don't Dance.  I always say that our big white dog looks like a polar bear. 


This Wild Kratts DVD features 4 wild adventures for your children's pleasure!  

Polar Bears Don’t Dance 
Martin and Chris are on a mission in the Arctic to discover just how animals move around in different environments. Their new knowledge of both buoyancy and traction comes in handy when they discover that the dastardly Zach Varmitech has kidnapped a Walrus calf and a Polar bear cub. The Wild Kratts team will do whatever it takes to return the baby animals to their mothers!

Mystery of the Weird Looking Walrus
Chris and Martin are out to investigate why the walrus looks so weird, but then find out that Zach Varmitech has kidnapped an entire herd to mine precious pearls for Donita Donata’s fashion line. The Wild Kratts team figures out that walrus’ have incredible powers that have a lot to do with how they look. They must employ the walrus’ super suction and other amazing powers against Zach to save the herd and return them back home to their Arctic domain.

Journey to the Subnivean Zone
A miniaturized Chris and Martin get lost in a snowy field and uncover the secret underground world of the meadow vole.

“Musk Ox Mania
When Chris realizes that his precious Creature souvenir collection is missing, the gang must travel back to the Arctic to find it. But the Arctic is now covered in a thick layer of ice and snow, so they’ll need the help of a special Arctic creature – the Musk Ox – and its creature powers to find it.

You can find these wild adventures available everywhere today!

Disney's Mickey Mouse: Merry and Scary now on DVD

Disney's Mickey Mouse: Merry and Scary is now available!!  

This looks so cute!  I love the old style cartoons, especially when they come back and I can put a fresh face on them for my 2 kids.  Allyson has a soft place in her heart for Donald Duck, so this is perfect!



We'll be picking up a copy to watch though the season.  How about you?

Spongebob Squarepants: The Complete Ninth Season Available on DVD!

We received the following products for review purposes.  All opinions are our own.

Holy Cow!!!  The complete ninth season, all in one place.  The kids loved these episodes!  Super excited to have them all in one place.  


SpongeBob and friends are back underwater with the DVD release of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season, which includes over 20 episodes and three double-length episodes from the show's ninth season. SpongeBob SquarePants continues to be the most-watched animated series for the past 15 years and in this DVD, SpongeBob, Sandy, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton are up to even more of their wet-and-wild, deep-sea dilemmas! Whether it's SpongeBob searching for a job, Squidward learning the art of kah-rah-tay or Mr. Krabs getting married (to a pile of cold-hard-cash!), the nautical nonsense is as rampant as ever!

Both Allyson and Cooper have been going crazy over this title.   Ally enjoys the Extreme Sports and Squid Baby episodes and Cooper doesn't have a favorite.  They both sit... laughing... together!  I couldn't ask for anything more as a mom.  Thank you once again, Spongebob Squarepants! 

Spongebob Squarepants: The Complete Ninth Season is available for purchase today!  It's perfect for any old Tuesday or for Christmas.  Just make sure you grab a copy for your collection.

Perfect Stocking Stuffers from TownleyGirl

We received the following products for review purposes.  All opinions are our own. 

Stocking stuffers are a must have for the holiday season but most importantly, what kind?  Every year I like to load up my daughter's stocking with fun trinkets and event a little bit of makeup.  She is 8 this year, so its time we start getting a into the fun and glittery products!  Thank goodness TownleyGirl is here to save me with their Despicable Me 3 line of Lip Glosses and Nail Accessories!

Allyson has had so much fun playing with the glosses and doing her nails.  The flavors and colors available are perfect for her eight year old little heart.  Plus, took at these cute cases for the lip balms to be stored in.  They're great to carry around, even in their school bag.  No risk of losing that lip balm forever when its in it's case.   Now, I can make sure Ally keeps them in the case.  Any tips there? HA!


We had a few girls over to test out the nail polish and accessories.  Those girls loved that they could choose the color and put a star on at the end.  Each girl was able to show their personality!  We all know girls at this age are starting to figure out who they are and what they want.  This kit was perfect! 

Allyson's favorite item in this review ended up being the lip balms that look like minions in the video below!  Each one has a different flavor and color.   They do not have a taste but go on smooth!  


Christmas is right around the corner!  Sliding some TownleyGirl in your children's stocking is a great way to keep those smiles rolling on Christmas morning.
