#TBT with Pocoyo & Sonic {Giveaway}

The new Pocoyo and Sonic DVD releases from NCircle Entertainment this month really have me reliving my childhood. It's been a real blast from the past! #TBT #Pocoyo #SonictheHedgehog #SonicUnderground #NCircleEntertainment #Giveaway
~Thank you to NCircle Entertainment for providing DVDs for review. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~

This week has been a total throwback for me. NCircle Entertainment has some pretty amazing releases this month. Last week I shared with you the new Dino Dan: Dino Go Seek release, but this week I’ve really had fun reliving some childhood memories with Pocoyo and Sonic the Hedgehog.

While Pocoyo wasn’t around when I was a kid, that doesn’t mean he can’t offer a little inspiration from my childhood. The new Pocoyo: Playtime! release is filled with over an hour of nothing but playtime fun. One of the activities Pocoyo and his friends partake in is a short camp out, complete with a tent, hammock and flashlight.

This inspired me to help my kids build an indoor tent and have a little camp out of our own. This is something I did all the time as a child. We turned our entire living room into one big tent (this was a good way to get my kids to clean up too, haha) and loaded it up with pillows and blankets, and just hung out for a while. We got a little hungry so my son did a little fishing and quickly caught us something to eat!

I love Pocoyo for my toddler because it introduces children to simple and basic vocabulary, and even starts teaching concepts like location. In one particular part of this DVD, Pocoyo’s ducky friend Pato teaches what it means for a ball to be outside, inside, behind and in front of a box. The simple, but fun and colorful graphics and playtime adventures are a wonderful learning tool for youngsters.

And the real blast from the past this week? Sonic the Hedgehog! Let me first start off by telling you that in second grade, I dressed up as Sonic for Halloween. It was all blue everything, including a foam-like mask that had Sonic’s signature spikey hair. I have no idea why I remember that other than it was pretty awesome!

So to be completely honest, when I saw NCircle Entertainment was releasing Sonic Underground Vol. 2, I knew I had to have it. Not for the kids, but for me! Although my son has enjoyed watching the three disc set with me.

If you’re not familiar with Sonic Underground, it’s a series of stories that tell how Sonic and his siblings Sonia and Manic search for their mother, Queen Aleena. And it just wouldn’t be Sonic without Dr. Robotnik, so of course he’s the villain still working against Sonic. Both are trying to find Queen Aleena’s crown jewel, which will help them locate Queen Aleena herself. Who do you think will succeed in finding it first?

Volume 2 happens to be the last and final stories of the Sonic Underground tale and has a run time of about 7 hours. It even includes 20 bonus music videos because did I mention Sonic and his siblings have a rock band? Their name is Sonic Underground! Duh!

Sonic Underground Vol. 2 Stories

  • The Jewel of the Crown
  • Three Hedgehogs and a Baby
  • Dunes Day
  • Mummy, Dearest
  • The Hedgehog in an Iron Mask

If you have a Kmart in your area and you’re not taking advantage of its grocery selections, you are truly missing out. Most people tend not to think of groceries when they think of Kmart, but I oftentimes shop there for household supplies and yes, general groceries. You know I love saving a buck or two anywhere I can and Kmart happens to be one of the places I can do that!

Easter is just two weeks away and is one of the holidays that my family gathers together for a big family feast. This year I’m helping prepare for my family’s big Easter dinner and have been tasked with table settings and centerpieces. Can you guess where I’ll be shopping? Kmart, of course! And I’ll be saving along the way!

Before I head to the store, I decided to do a little browsing online. I know they’ll have everything I need, but I wanted to get a head start because I tend to be a bit indecisive. I’m one of those people who picks something out, puts it in the cart, does some other shopping and then loops back around because I’ve changed my mind. By looking online, I can at least see what I might be able to expect in-store and ponder my final decisions beforehand. Otherwise, I might be in the store ALL day.

I’m starting with the centerpieces and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Easter, is Easter eggs and the Easter bunny. How can I incorporate these into cool centerpieces that are more than just pleasing to the eye? I want centerpieces that people can really enjoy and won’t just be stored or trashed after the holiday.

I think it would be cool to make them tasty! In the spirit of Easter, why not have some centerpieces that feature candy shaped like Easter eggs and Easter bunnies? My family loves chocolate, so I certainly know a centerpiece with chocolate will not go to waste. This week, Kmart has Easter 6-pack candies and Lindt Gold Bunnies on sale for just $2.50 (ends 4/8)! And next week Easter Packaged Chocolates will be just $1.50 (4/9 to 4/15). These deals are totally worth two trips to the store!

The candies will all be perfect for my centerpieces (and a snack while I’m putting them together, just saying). If I arrange them all in cute little baskets, with some grass filling (that can be reused next year, I might add), nothing will go to waste and my family will get a little extra surprise at Easter dinner this year!

So with the centerpieces all planned out, I need to decide on coordinating table settings – plates, utensils, cups, etc. Since I’m going to Kmart, I want to look at the store’s own Smart Sense brand.

I already buy Smart Sense products on a regular basis so I know they’re worthy of my family’s Easter dinner, but a special little added bonus is that when I spend $10+ on Smart Sense items, I’ll earn 25% back in Shop Your Way Rewards Points (ends 5/1). It’s a win-win!

Look at these cute and decorative plates and cups I came across! The design and colors are great for an Easter celebration, and I love that they match. I’ll be getting dinner plates, salad bowls, dessert plates, cups, napkins and utensils. Lots of utensils! My family likes to eat, toss their dishes, take a break and then come back for more before hitting the dessert table.

On top of the centerpieces and table settings, I think I’m going to put together a host gift for my mom, since she’s hosting everyone this year. I know after having all of us crazies in her house, she’ll need a little something special for herself. She loves snacking so I’m thinking a few Smart Sense snacking nuts and trail mixes will do the trick!

So you see? Kmart’s grocery selections are worth visiting! All the candy and tableware for my family’s big Easter dinner are going to be perfect and I think my mom will be overjoyed at her host gift. On top of that, this is one holiday my wallet won’t feel the wrath!

What will you buy at Kmart in preparation for Easter?

Now that we’ve covered Easter outfits, let’s get into Easter baskets! I love putting together collections of fun and learning for my kids, no matter what holiday it is and Easter is no different. It just so happens that I’ve been planning this year’s Easter baskets since last year!

Yeap, you heard me right. After the holiday last year, I purchased plastic eggs, straw filling and even the “baskets” on clearance, and have held on to them even through our move. I’ve also collected swimsuits and summer shoes during various end of season sales. I sized up and now a few of those will fit, so they’re perfect additions to my kids Easter baskets! And with Easter almost here, I’m excited to pull everything together.

Here comes Peter Cottontail.

Hopping down the bunny trail.

Hippity, hoppity, Easter’s on its way!

So what all goes into an ultimate Easter basket? I love to incorporate my kids favorite candy treats, which they only get on special occasions or as rewards, fun toys and activities they can enjoy indoors and outdoors, and even a handful of things that help spark their imagination and learning processes.

Like Christmas, I typically do one larger or more pricey gift along with smaller, less expensive ones. The special feature in my son’s Easter basket this year is a personalized book from I See Me! It’s personalized to include a picture of him, a special dedication and the book is ALL about him. The only thing more fun than reading an exciting story, is when that story is all about you!

In “Terrell’s Very Own Trucks and Things That Go!,” a variety of transportation vehicles and vessels work together to build “the perfect name,” my son’s name. On each and every page, a “thing that goes” brings in one letter, until they’ve collected every letter needed to compile his first AND last name (and it’s a long one, haha).

It’s such a fun rhyming book and at the end, my son can learn a little bit about all 64 “things that go” – trucks, cars, planes, trains, boats, cranes, diggers, tanks and more. My little car fanatic will be over the moon to see his favorite transportation vehicles working together to build his name.

Not only does I See Me! offer personalized books and stories, but they also have stickers, lunch boxes, puzzles, coloring books, placematsgrowth charts and music, all of which can be personalized for your little one. I mentioned a few of these in my ultimate Easter basket idea list above! How cool would it be to have an Easter basket full of personalized fun?

As for the smaller, less expensive items I include in my kids Easter baskets, Target is one of my go-to solutions. Never underestimate “The One Spot” located at the entrance of the store. You can find all kinds of fun things there for $1. Just last week I got bubbles, coloring books, a small pair of Disney socks for my daughter and even some writing tools for my son!

About Beauty and the Beast
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic that refashions the characters from the tale. As old as time for a contemporary audience, it stays true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

“Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Exploring Outer Space with The Cat in the Hat {Giveaway}

~Thank you to NCircle Entertainment for providing me with a Cat in the Hat DVD and book for review. This post contains affiliate links, in which I may receive compensation for your purchase.~

As you probably already know, last week was Dr. Seuss week and the Read Across America event took place on March 2nd, in light of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Not only did we have fun with Dr. Seuss activities last week and participate in Read Across America, but we also spent the week exploring outer space.

Each day my son did a different activity, all of which were space related. And everything he did led up to a special Friday movie. It’s just like when I was in school and the big box TV was rolled into the classroom. I knew right then my school day was taking a turn for the better. It was the same thing here. With a little help from NCircle Entertainment, he took an adventure through outer space with The Cat in the Hat! The Cat in the Hat knows a lot about all kinds of things, even outer space.

Monday

You can’t really learn about outer space without visiting, and you can’t really visit without becoming an astronaut, so that’s how my son started the week. On Monday he created his very own astronaut and started learning about the different things he might see way out of this world.

I found a large array of outer space printables just from searching on Pinterest, so that’s where all of the outer space activities and ideas for the week came from. His astronaut printable was a color by letter activity and the other coloring printable was a color by sight word. Both of these were perfect for his age!

Tuesday

Now that my son was an official astronaut, he had to figure out how to actually get to outer space. His solution was to build his own rocket ship. On Tuesday, we took to his painting easel so he could create one!

Ready to explore outer space with The Cat in the Hat? Take a look at our outer space week activities and enter to win a Cat in the Hat outer space bundle (DVD and book)! #DrSeuss #TheCatintheHat #NCircleEntertainment #outerspace

We actually started by painting his foot blue and orange, and then he stepped on his easel paper. The blue part would be the body of his rocket and the orange part, the fire coming out the engines. It was a nice starting point to get his creative juices flowing. After that, I let him do his own thing.

I did tell him his rocket needed some triangular wings (thinking of those at the base of the rocket) and he took it literally, giving his rocket green wings. They look like bird wings to me, but that’s the beauty of a child’s creativity. Besides, it’s his rocket ship and he can do whatever he wants to it.

Wednesday

Wednesday he did a little more research as to what he should expect to see when he gets to outer space. You know, just so he’s prepared once he gets there. With a couple of connect the dots activities, he realized there was a lot to see and explore – stars, planets, passing rocket ships and more!

Thursday

Now we’re getting somewhere. My son is an official astronaut, has is own rocket ship and is ready for exploration. Outer space here he comes! 5-4-3-2-1, BLAST OFF!

Thursday he started with four maze activities – exploring through his rocket ship, the moon, a star and finally, Saturn.

After he finished those, we participated in the Read Across America event by reading his new Cat in the Hat book, There’s No Place Like Space! It couldn’t be more perfect for celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday and keeping with our outer space theme for the week.

Friday

Friday arrived and it was finally time to debut his new DVD, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Space. Following a robotic dog that came to earth, the Cat in the Hat took him on an out of this world adventure in the Space-ama-racer.

They meet Astronaut Audrey at her space station, at which time she introduces them to Space Rover (the robotic dog) who is helping her explore outer space. Before they know it, Space Rover gets tangled in some space junk while exploring and it’s up to Cat, Nick and Sally to save him. This is just the start of the adventure, as they follow Space Rover from planet to planet, through asteroids and so much more!

After watching the movie, I helped him cut out all of the activities he’d been working on during the week and using push-pin magnets, we placed them all on our dishwasher.

Canvas Factory, Taking Photo Displays to a New Level + Giveaway

Need some decorating inspiration? A 16 x 20 canvas print from Canvas Factory was exactly what I needed to inspire me to finally decorate my kids' bedroom walls. Head over to the blog to check it out! #canvasprint #CanvasFactory

~ Thank you to Canvas Factory for providing a sample for review. ~

Since our move, the walls in the kids’ room have been pretty bare. The room looks and feels so empty, aside from their furniture, so much so that I can even hear myself echoing occasionally. I decided it was definitely time to do something about this.

When thinking about what the perfect décor for their walls would be, I remembered I had a beautiful canvas print of my son in his Halloween costume a couple of years ago. I had it on display in our living room at our previous home, but really don’t have anywhere in our new living room to put it. Rather than keeping it hidden in storage, I thought it would be perfect to display over my son’s bed on his side of the room.

But that still left me questioning what to do with my daughter’s side of the room and then it hit me. It would be perfect to get a photo of her in the same sized canvas print! I immediately thought of Canvas Factory, as this is where my son’s canvas print came from and I just love the quality of it. Not to mention, the ease of designing and ordering one.

In just 5 easy steps, my daughter’s canvas print was ready to go!

Need some decorating inspiration? A 16 x 20 canvas print from Canvas Factory was exactly what I needed to inspire me to finally decorate my kids' bedroom walls. Head over to the blog to check it out! #canvasprint #CanvasFactory

  1. Choose a canvas size. The 16 x 20 print is Canvas Factory’s most popular canvas size and the same size I chose. I like that it’s larger than a typical photo frame, but not so large that it’s obnoxious. It’s definitely a great size to be the focal point or center of a wall/photo display.
  2. Upload a photo. This is probably the hardest part of the whole process. With tons of photos to choose from and wanting prints of so many of them, I chose a great photo of my daughter from her first birthday. Would you believe this was actually a photo taken with my phone? I couldn’t believe how clear and vibrant the canvas turned out after the photo was enlarged so much!
  3. Choose a wrap style. There are three wrap styles to choose from. One is a Gallery wrap, which is simply continuing to wrap the photo around the edges. Another style is a Colored Wrap, in which the outer edges are a solid color. And the third style is a Mirror Wrap, which is the one I chose. This is simply taking the outer portion of the photo that shows on the front of the canvas and mirroring it just enough to fill the edges.
  4. Add any coloring affects or text. I decided to skip this part of the customization process, but you can add color effects like tinging the photo with various colors, or brightening and sharpening the photo, adding text and more.
  5. Checkout. The last step is just completing your order and waiting for your canvas print to arrive.

Aside from the great quality of the prints from Canvas Factory, they are always having a sale of some sort so there’s no paying full price for anything! Right now they’re offering 70% off storewide and when I visited the site I was able to sign up for email notifications (so I’ll always know when these awesome sales are happening) and got a promo code for $10 off! I can’t promise the same will happen for everybody, but you won’t know unless you visit Canvas Factory!

Now would be the perfect time to get those family holiday photos printed on a canvas because these deals combined make a 16 x 20 size canvas print just $28.70! AND, I have the chance for you to win one! Just enter using the giveaway form below!
