The weather in the South can be hard to keep up with some weeks.  Of course one thing is for sure, when it is hot , it is really hot!  And when it rains, it really rains!  Luckily for my daughters, there is Kidorable umbrellas to help keep them dry.

A little bout Kidorable

In 1997, Kidorable sprung from the minds, hearts and efficiency apartment of Liping and Jonathan Domsky. They proclaimed, "The world needs someone to create children's apparel and accessories that are both functional and fun. We can do that."

Now my daughters loved the variety of choices there were in the umbrellas and finally decided on the Lucky Cat and Panda umbrellas ( shown below ).

My daughters squealed with delight when they saw their umbrellas and immediately hoped for rain.  Unfortuantely for them rain was no where in forecast for several several days.  Finally though rain came and they had the opportunity to try them out.  I have to say the umbrellas worked out great and the kids stayed dry and looked super adorable with their umbrellas.  I have to say I am a little jealous of how cute their umbrellas are and would love a big pink cat one like my oldest daughter.

Now you can find Kidorable in various stores and online at their website for affordable prices .  They also do not just sell umbrellas but so much more like rain coats and boots.  There are also gloves and such.  You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter for contest and updates.

* I received the above mentioned products solely for review purposes.  The above mentioned opinion is completely honest and completely my own.

Now for some exciting news,  Kidorable has been gracious enough to allow me to host a giveaway.  The giveaway is for an umbrella of the winner's choice.  SO be sure to enter the Rafflecopter form below for a chance.  GOOD LUCK!

Despite his greasy counters, lousy location and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves. Featuring the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin (“Archer) and Kristen Schaal (“Flight of the Concords”), “Bob’s Burgers” is a hilarious comedy about one unconventional family that will have you coming back for seconds.

Now I have only seen one episode so far of the show , but I have to say I enjoyed it.  The episode I saw was not like the other older cartoons where there is cursing and such.  I look forward to seeing the other episodes starting from the beginning.

The dvd is available now where dvds are sold and online at for $ 20.99.  So be sure to check out the show on FOX on Sundays and also grab a copy of the dvd today.

It's time once again to let it all hang out with an all-new volume of animated outrageousness! From the disturbed comic minds of Mike Barker, Matt Weitzman, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, comes the always insane adventures of CIA operative Stan Smith and his wonderfully twisted family. In the 100th episode, Hayley elopes with Jeff! Other episodes include Stan on jury duty, Steve walking in on his amorous parents, Roger dating Steve's best friend, and yet another AD Christmas classic. Plus, there are serial killers, Turkish amphetamines, and evil clones - so, you know, the usual!

Now I used to never watch American Dad or Family Guy but one night I gave both a shot.  Now some of the episodes are too much for me, but mostly the comedy is so outrageously silly that I find myself laughing outloud.  It is a cartoon for adults to do nothing more than laugh.

If you are a fan of Americna Dad or have someone in your life who is , be sure to grab a copy today.  The dvd set is available where dvds are sold and online at for $ 24.99 (which is a really good price for a tv show set).  So grab a copy and see what get-ups Roger can come up with in each episode!

* I received the above product to review.  My opinions are always honest and always my own.

My son loves action adventure cartoons like He-Man so I knew he would like Conan and he did.  The show is filled full of action and adventure that is sure to excite any boy.  My daughters actually enjoyed part of it but they also like shows like the Power Rangers. 

My son is excited to see what happens next after watching these episodes and also wants the other dvds of the episodes before these.  If you have a little kiddo who loves action and adventure then grab them a copy of Conan the Adventurer Season 2 Part 2 .  The dvd is available where dvds are sold and online at for $ 14.99.

SPACE DOGS dvd review


The exciting, animated tale based on the true story of Belka and Strelka; two Russian dogs sent to space in 1960. A circus dog and a stray dog embark on an out-of-this-world adventure to become the world's most famous canine cosmonauts!


I love when the movie industry takes an important event in history and makes it into an animated film so kids will learn something while enjoying a cute cartoon.  This is exactly what happened with Space Dogs.  It is a cartoon movie based on the actual story of the 2 dogs that went into space.

My kids loved this movie and my daughters liked it even more when I told them that it was based on a real story.  It is beautifully animated and is a very cute story.  All 3 of my kids watched the whole movie which can be a huge feat in my household.

I definitely recommend this movie to every family.  I mean it is entertaining and educational for all ages.  The movie is available now where dvds are sold and online at for $ 19.99.  So go grab the movie today and then sit down with the family for a fun movie night.

With Galactus defeated and Dr. Doom moping behind bars, Super Hero City is finally safe — that is, until Thanos goes in search of the powerful Infinity Gauntlet! Although they are without their comrade-in-laughter, Silver Surfer, the Super Hero Squad — Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Wolverine and Falcon — must once again come together to take on any villain that threatens the peace and safety of the Marvel universe . . . no matter where it might take them!

Packed inside each DVD is a unique code that offers a free one week trial subscription to play Super Hero Squad: Online at, plus coins to play with and a Silver Card Booster Pack.


My son has been a huge fan of Super Heroes since he was a little boy.  So it is no surprise that he loves Super Hero Squad.  He finds the show hilarious and loves to watch it over and over.  His sisters even love the show as well.  His favorite is Wolverine and he loves the episodes with him in it the best.

I love how they have made Super Heroes available for all ages now especially younger children too.  The show is great for all ages from young to old.  The really great thing is that it will make you laugh out loud since the show can be kind of silly at times!

The dvd is available today and can be purchased where dvds are sold and online at Shout Factory for $ 13.98.  So be sure to grab a copy today for the little Super Hero fan in your life.

Join MOZART CAT in his mysterious adventure as he braves danger on of a dark stormy night in the forest searching for notes he needs to compose a new piece of music. One by one, forest creatures come to his aid: Fish, Owl, Spider, Snake, Tortoise, Rabbit, and more! A definitions appendix completes the experience, along with interactive activity pages enabling instant integration of the educational elements of MOZART CAT's story into children's real world lives. 

The 3-track CD features renowned conductor James Conlon's story narration set to original arrangements of Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor, KV. 550, and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, K. 525 (A Little Night Music); the original music score for home storytelling, and an interactive educational track aligned with the activity pages of the book.


The wondrously lovable 11-inch plush MOZART CAT is the ultimate classical companion for kids. Squeeze his tummy and he plays a 30-second clip of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik) Serenade No.13


Now I am always looking for toys that are educational for my kiddos and Composer Cats is just that.  I love the fact that someone has come up with a wonderful product to help introduce kids to Mozart and several other composers that are to come soon. 

My daughters loved the Mozart Cat and are constantly pressing his tummy to hear the music.   He is super cute and soft also! The music has sparked several questions from my girls which makes me happy.  I love sharing knowledge with them and they loved the book too.  They have had me read the book several times and they love the story.

I think the Composer Cat plush would be perfect for a baby shower gift since classical music is researched to stimulate babies.  Also it would be great for  any child who loves music.  I also think it would be great to introduce classical music to children.  You can purchase the Composer Cat plush and book at their website store.  The book and cd is priced at $19.99 and the Mozart plush is $29.99. 

Also they offer Opera Mice for sale coming soon with the first in the series being Figaro Mouse singing The Barber of Seville.  Just check out the little clip below that introduces them both.

I think Composer Cats and Opera Mice would be great additions to any family especially with very young children.  So be sure to grab the plush and the book today.

I just wanted to share with you all some exciting events coming up soon on my blog.  I have 2 week long events coming up in the next few weeks.  One will be featuring some wonderful toys from Imperial Toys.  I have 7 products to review over the whole week.  Now Imperial Toys is the leader in bubble products and they also have water balloon products as well.  So expect a fun week to come featuring their products.

The next week event coming soon will feature Mother's Day gift ideas and will also have giveaways!!  So please be sure to keep your eyes peeled for them.

I am really excited about these upcoming events and hope you all are too.



Elmo embarks on some gigantic adventures in Sesame Street: Big Elmo Fun! In “Elmozilla,” he is accidentally enlarged and towers over all of Sesame Street. While Abby tries to figure out how to get Elmo back to his normal size, kids will learn all about measurement as they help solve Elmo’s BIG problem. In “Elmo and the Monarch Butterfly” children will learn about science and observation. Finally, in a spoof of the hit cooking show Iron Chef, Elmo stirs up even more fun in a silly cooking competition “Cast Iron Cooks,” with Jason Schwartzman as the judge. In all three episodes, children are introduced to new vocabulary such as fascinating, metamorphosis, ingredient and measure. Kids and caregivers are in for a BIG treat with two brand-new songs, and the “Flutter By, Butterfly” animated book to reinforce the lessons learned during Elmo’s adventures.


Now my 3 kids are all very different from each other in many ways, but they all have at least one thing in common.  They all watched Sesame Street while growng up and they all loved Elmo.  My youngest daughter still watches it during the day and loves Elmo and Abby Cadabby.  So when I showed her the new dvd featuring her 2 fav Sesame Street stars, she was thrilled and immediately had to watch it.

My daughter loved the show and has watched it more than once and still laughs everytime.  Now I love Sesame Street for several reasons.  First it is educational which is always a plus.  Next it is entertaining for my kids and sometimes even me ( I was a huge Elmo fan in my younger days!)  But most of all I do not have to worry about what my daughter will see while watching Sesame Street .  It is always good clean educational tv.

I totally recommend this movie if you have an Elmo or Abby fan.  They are sure to love it like my daughter does.  You can pick up a copy for your kiddo where dvds are sold and also online at the Sesame Street store for $14.99.  So be sure to grab a copy today and take a stroll on Sesame Street!

RACE TO THE ROOF board game review


Can you make it to the attic before anyone else? Starting at the front door, roll the die and race through the different rooms. Roll a 6 and take an object card - you might leap forward or take a huge step backwards. No two games are alike on this varying game board. Finding the objects in the rooms supports recognition and association skills.      


As most of you know I love board games and so does the rest of my family.  I especially love games that my whole family can play together.  Now sometimes that is a challenge with the age gap between my son and his sisters.  There is almost 5 years difference between him and his oldest sister.  With that said, Race to the Roof from Ravensburger is perfect for all ages.  There is no reading involved so my youngest can play too.

Also another great feature of the game is that you can set the game up different each time so no game is the same.  There are room cards that can be placed in different orders so the board is changed with each game or you can keep it the same.

My kids loved this game since it was a level playing field.  Also depending on how many sixes you roll the game can last a little while but you will not mind cause it is fun.  I let the kids take turns setting up the game board which they loved too.

I love that the object cards make you search the rooms for various objects and can also help move yo ahead or even back.  MY kids  had a blast playing this game and we played it several times in a roll over Spring Break.

You can purchase Race to the Roof online at Ravensburger's website for $19.99.  It is definitely worth the price since the game changes every time and is great for all ages.  It is a great addition to any family's board game collection.  So be sure to get one today and see who can get to the attic first!

We received the purple "mysterious" earphones to review.  Lucky for me my youngest daughter loves purple and was the only kid who did not have a pair of earphones for her leapster.  She was thrilled with them and showed them off to anyone.  I have to say there are a pretty purple color - kinda metallic. 

Also they sound great when you use them.  I mean they do not sound muffled or staticy when you use them.  They are definitely great for anyone who is looking for  great sounding earphones that can show a little attitude. 

You can purchase them online at for as little as $ 6.08.  I mean that is a great deal!  So be sure to grab some for yourself or someone you love who likes to express theirselves.

THE SITTER dvd review


Adventures in Babysitting meets "Superbad" in this raunchy comedy starring Jonah Hill as Noah, a suspended college student who becomes the unlikely--and unqualified--sitter to his neighbor's children (Max Records, Landry Bender, Kevin Hernandez). But his girlfriend's (Ari Gaynor) promise of sex in exchange for cocaine forces Noah to bring the kids along on a wild trek across the city, pursued by a psychotic drug dealer (Sam Rockwell).


Now I was not sure if I would like this movie.  Yes, I knew it would be a raunchy comedy which is where my doubts came from.  Now this is not a family movie even though it does throw in some good messages when Jonah Hill's character helps the kids he babysits with their problems.

The movie does have a lot of bad language and graphic scenes and dialogue. Some of which I think could be left out and still get the point across.  Yet I still found myself laughing out loud at times.  I do find the movie easy to predict mostly but it still is funny. 

Now if you are not a fan of raunchy comedy, do NOT watch this movie.  If you enjoy laughing at silly comedy then you could like this movie.

The movie is available now where dvds are sold and online at for $ 18.99.

I am sure some of you have noticed that I have not been on much the last few days.  Well, unfortunately my modem decided to slowly die on me.  At first, I could long on for short periods then nothing at all.  The funny part was that the modem still lit up and acted like it was trying to work.  Then I called tech support and was told that my pwer light blinking red and green indicated a defective modem. 

Well, I was relieved that it was not a line problem but upset when I heard my modem of course, was out of warranty.  SO I had to order a new one and received it tonight.  It is nice to be reconnected to the net again but I also had a little nice vacation with my family.

Also since I did not get to tell my wonderful readers on Sunday - I hope you all had a great and blessed Easter!

I have a lot to catch up on so please bare with me and I will be posting more reviews and giveaways coming soon.  I will also be sure to post my winners asap.  Thank you all for bearing with me.

Also I do have some Mother's Day gift ideas coming up so get ready!

WE BOUGHT A ZOO out today on dvd and blu-ray review


A widower (Matt Damon) purchases a zoo in order to bring his family back together in this Twentieth Century Fox adaptation of Benjamin Mee's autobiographical memoir. BASED ON A TRUE STORY!


Now I am a sucker for a feel good movie and We Bought A Zoo is just that.  I cried during the movie but laughed out loud too.  It had a good balance between the sadness and happiness.  My son enjoyed the movie , but my girls drifted through parts but really enjoyed the animals.  Now I will warn you there is language in it (which I wish had been toned down).  Still even with that one complaint the movie has a great message to it. 

The movie left me wanting to load the family up to go see the actual zoo the movie is based on.  Matt Damon did a great job as Benjamin Mee.  Of course to me the star of the movie besides the animal was the little girl played by Maggie Elizabeth Jones .  She was simply adorable!  Of course to me the whole staff did a superb job of acting.

This movie is a great addition to any movie collection and would make a great gift for a loved one.  The movie is being released today .  It is available where dvds are sold and online at for $16.99.

In the third entry in the popular live-action/animated series, Alvin, Simon, Theodore, their guardian Dave (Jason Lee), old foe Ian (David Cross), and Chipettes Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor wind up marooned on a tropical island. Their adventure includes an encounter with a mysterious castaway named Zoe (Jenny Slate), a dangerous volcano, a buried treasure, and a spider bite that brings about an odd change in Simon.


My kids love the Chipmunks and the Chipettes as well.  SO of course they loved this movie which makes me happy since I have enjoyed the Chipmunks since I was a kid myself.  My daughters love the singing scenes and wishes there were more. I think actually this one has the least singing scenes of the 3 movies.  The storyline is funny for all ages and is sure to make the whole family laugh.  I really enjoyed the part of Simon in this movie.  I am sure most people will love it too. 

It is a must have movie for family collections.  But I have to warn you, your kids may watch it numerous times like mine have.  SO be sure to grab a copy today for the family or to add to the kids' Easter baskets.  The dvd is available now where dvds are sold and online at for $13.99.

The World's first TOY that makes putting things away FUN!
My head is a pillow so we can snuggle up tight...
My body is made so you can store things right...
But best of all I have a SECRET SPACE...
To keep all your special treasures in just the right place!


I saw these adorable plush storage holders called Treasure Chest Pets andfell in love with them.  I knew my daughters would adore them.  Now they come in 3 styles - Media Chest, Accessory Chest, and Treasure Chest.  We were fortunate to get to review 2 of the styles.  We received the Monkey Treasure Chest and the Pig Accessory Chest.  Now the difference is basically the style of compartment.  The Treasure Chest opens up like a chest and the Accessory Chest has a drawer that pulls out.  Now the picture does not do the drawer justice; it is a lot bigger than it looks.

Also they are super soft and have a very plush head that doubles as a pillow.  You can easily detach the head from the body because it is only being held on by a strong magnet.  Now I say strong magnet but it is still simple enough for my little girls to work.  My girls love their Treasure Chest Pets!  Although to me the greatest thing is that they can store their "valuables" in a cute and soft storage container and my girls love having a "secret" place for their things.

Now besides the Monkey Treasure Chest there is also a Treasure Chest Cow.  There is also a Dog Accessory Chest and two different Media Chests that come in a Bear and Horse design.  They are also affordably priced at $19.99.  I mean how can you beat that price!  YOu can purchase them in over 200 stores and also in their online store.  So this year how bout getting one instead of an Easter basket or grab one for the little kiddo's next birthday.  They are sure to love them like my little girls do.
