Hey Arnold Season 1


Created by Craig Bartlett as a comic in 1986, Hey Arnold! debuted as an animated short for the Nickelodeon film Harriet the Spy in 1996. It then went on to air on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2001, subsequently airing on "Nick on CBS" from 2002 until 2004. Now, for the first time, the long anticipated Hey Arnold!: Season One (4-disc set) is available in stores.

Chuggington's newest DVD - It's Training Time


My kids really enjoy the action-packed, fun yet educational series of Chuggington. Wilson, Brewster and Koko are the 'trainees' as well as the main characters in this animated series. As can be seen from the photo below, they sat spellbound watching the episodes unfold as the charming and colorful series gently teaches as it entertains.

Seventh Generation's Free & Clear diapers


One of the most important word Parents add to their vocabulary is 'Diapers' - a product that features a great deal in their lives as well as that of their children for a significant time. My kids still use diapers, especially the younger one who's just getting toilet-trained and so diapers are always on my shopping list. I continue to struggle to balance my budget with my conscience because I'd like to buy more of the 'healthy' diapers like that of Seventh Generation, but can't always afford to. So I compromise by getting Seventh Generation diapers every other time I go to buy diapers. Health and wealth given priority in equal proportion :)

Needless to say when I was recently offered a chance to check out Seventh Generation's Free & Clear diapers, I was ecstatic!

Fun in the Sun with YoPlait Kids Yogurt

Summer is here and my kids are forever asking for something cool to sip or eat. Fruits, ice creams and popsicles rate high among their favorites. But their favorite thing of all is Yogurt. My kids will eat yogurt any time of the day or night, whatever the weather outside, but especially in summer. And as I've described to you before, Yoplait is a brand that's long been a family favorite when it comes to yogurt.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Great Outdoors


As previously mentioned, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse remains a daily favorite with my kids whose only complaint is that they can't watch it all day long. Which is why it was my delight to share the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Great Outdoors dvd with them.

About the dvd - Mickey Mouse and his famous pals (Minnie, Donald, Pluto, Goofy, Daisy and Toodles) join efforts to inspire preschoolers around the country to enjoy the outdoors by camping, fishing and exploring nature. It features four episodes from the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” TV show plus one all-new, never-before-seen episode.

Veggie Tales: Live! Sing Yourself Silly

Veggie Tales: Live! Sing Yourself Silly captures all the fun of the live tour with energetic dancers, loads of bubbles, confetti, classic and popular VeggieTales silly songs and much more.

Here Bob, Larry & the whole crew are taking to the stage with the silliest Silly Song Countdown ever. This high energy song and dance spectacular takes silliness to a whole new level. But sometimes silliness just isn't enough. Archibald Asparagus prefers songs that have lessons, Mr. Lunt only wants to sing about food, and Jimmy and Jerry Gourd are stuck in the 80s. But there's only so much time..will the Veggies learn the importance of sharing so that the show can go on and everyone will be able to sing themselves silly??

Transformers: Beast Wars- Season One

PhotobucketThe 4-DVD set of Transformers Beast Wars: Season One is an action-packed thrill ride for any Transformers fan. Or if, like me, you're a bit new to the Transformers world (well, apart from the movies, that is), then you'll soon be intrigued enough to watch and want more. I certainly hope to get my hands on the rest of this Beast Wars series, not to mention the entire Transformers series itself.

The 26-episode series, which debuted in 1996, is set in the future of the "original" Transformers universe. When the descendants of the treacherous Decepticons — now known as PREDACONS — land on a mysterious planet in search of a powerful fuel known as Energon, it’s up to Optimus Primal and the heroic Maximals to stop them before they conquer the universe!

The Wild Thornberrys: Season 1

The Wild Thornberrys: Season One

We never saw The Wild Thornberrys when it was originally on air (1998-2004 with reruns airing on Nicktoons and CBS from 2002-2007). Which is why it came as a delightful surprise when I sat down with my kids to watch this series for the first time on the dvd release - which has long been anticipated by fans but has not been available in stores until now.

The hit series follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world in their Communications Vehicle (or CommVee) looking for rare animals to film.After an encounter with an African shaman, their youngest child Eliza was given the power to speak to animals!

Dvd Review - Wubbzy Saves the Day

In his own special way, this yellow best friend of kids everywhere, lends a hand, not to mention a bendy tail, in the new dvd, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy Saves the Day

Although their world is more fanciful and imaginative than our own, Wubbzy, Widget, Walden and Daizy deal with the same social and develomental issues faced by preschoolers. They learn how to fit in a grout, understand their feelings and those of others and more.

My kids have loved Wubbzy from the beginning, this dvd being their fourth or fifth one. So it was this one too, as both of them (especially the older one) watched this dvd with complete attention as Wubbzy hosted a bird-watching slumber party, had a memorable picnic in the park with Daizy and Widget, help a lost group of baby “chirpees” find their way home and stop a snoozing “Moo Moo” from vesting kooky spells all over Wuzzleburg!

The high-energy title features six engaging episodes packed with age-appropriate lessons for preschoolers all about sharing, caring, being yourself and helping others. Complete with toe-tapping tunes that got my little ones moving, “Wubbzy Saves The Day” comes to the rescue with adorable special features including a fun printable growth chart.

In a nutshell, parents and kids can watch this dvd with equal pleasure and enthusiasm.

Bake Sweet Memories

The Holidays might be over, but that doesn't mean the time for baking or sharing some sweet goodness is past. On the contrary, thanks to Betty Crocker, GladWare and the Safeway Family of Stores, we can keep our loved ones' hearts and homes filled with holiday spirit and homemade goodness of Betty Crocker. For some delicious inspiration, the Bake Sweet Memories website is right there filled with recipes of yummy treats that include Baklava Bars, Peppermint Cream Brownie Torte, and many others. 

My kids and I had great fun going through them. While I'm sure they're all wonderful, we chose to stick to the classic, all-time favorite in my family - sugar cookies! I used the gift card I got for review to go to Tom Thumb (which belongs to the Safeway family of stores) near my home to get the eggs and the butter. Later on that afternoon we decided to do the cookies. Now, keep in mind, I'm no baker. But these were super easy to make. My son, who loves using scissors (under supervision, of course!), helped me cut open the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix (seen in the photo above, along with the Gladware and my child's eager young hand) and then later on helped me stir the mix.

And my toddler was more interested in playing with the scattered flour and generally getting in the way :-) And then, lo behold, there were cookies! Super warm and equally soft and tasty to eat. The photos I took turned out way too dark, but they were similar to the ones pictured above.

To store them we used Glad's Deep Dish container that easily held all the cookies we made. Not only are they BPA-free, but they're also the perfect solution for storing and transporting any kind of food items. They're also great for gift giving.

For great holiday recipe ideas, how-to videos, and tips for hosting your very own cookie exchange, visit BakeSweetMemories.com.

Disclosure - Safeway, Betty Crocker, and Glad provided me with the gift card, information, and cookie mix and gladware through MyBlogSpark.
