Puppy Dog Pals is Super Cute!

Posted on April 9, 2018 in Disney kids Reviews

 

My 6 year old loves Puppy Dog Pals.  Jacob loves how much fun Rolly and Bingo have.  He can’t get enough of this cartoon.  He used to watch other shows, but now he is addicted to this DVD.  I don’t mind, because it is super cute, and I enjoy watching it too.

They’re cute, cuddly and all collared up for pup-tacular adventures!  While their owner Bob is away, adorable puppy brothers Bingo and Rolly embark on exciting missions stretching from their own backyard to amazing locations all around the world!  With support from their “big sister” Hissy, a neighborhood full of animal friends and Bob’s high-tech inventions, these hilarious heroes are always ready to unleash totally paw-some fun!

Voices include that of:   Issac Ryan Brown as Bingo; Sam Lavagnino as Rolly; Harland Williams as Bob; Jessica DiCicco as Hissy; and Tom Kenny as A.R.F.

This, Season 1, Puppy Dog Pals is available on DVD on Tuesday, April 10, 2018.  You can order it now, over on Amazon.  I’m sure your little one would love it.  Jacob is almost 7, and he adores watching the antics of Bingo And Rolly.

Puppy Dog Pals has become a big part of Jacob’s life, and now I’m ordering the toys, for his birthday.  He will be so excited when he sees his Rolly and Bingo Stuffed dogs.  I can’t wait!

Fun fact, Bingo and Rolly are based on real dogs!  (found on facebook page)

The Sleep ZZZ Pillow is so Great!

Posted on March 25, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

My little one, Jacob, age 6, loves the Sleep Zzz Pillow. He says he’s comfy all night, and doesn’t wake up until morning. It’s made him sleep through the night, when he couldn’t before. I’m not saying it’s a miracle worker, but it is for us. Now, the only time he gets up is to go potty, and he can’t wait to lay back down, and sleep with the Sleep Zzz Pillow.

Help your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer! The Sleep Zzz cuddles your child. It is like being held by a parent to fall asleep. The perfect shape for your little one!

If your child has a sensory problem, they say this is the pillow you have to get. Children love the 3mm pile cuddle fabric. It is super fuzzy!!

There are so many designs to choose from, and you can even have your child’s initials put on it. The Sleep Zzz Pillow will work for your child, like it has for mine. I love it, and we won’t be going back to a regular pillow for a long time.

Aliens Ate My Homework DVD & Digital Movie

Posted on March 22, 2018 in 2018 Easter Gift Guide kids Reviews

Aliens Ate My Homework was an interesting film, and both of my kids loved it.  Sarah, age 20, thought it was so cute, and Jacob, age 6, believed the entire film.  It’s really cute.  I loved it too.

The cast was great, and consisted of: Jayden Greig, Lauren McNamara, Kirsten Robek, Dan Payne, Alex Zahara, Ty Consiglio, Sean Quan, William Shatner, Tristan Risk.

Unexpected extraterrestrial guests team up with a pair of middle schoolers to prevent the destruction of the planet in Aliens Ate My Homework, coming to DVD, Digital and On Demand on March 6, 2018, from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A humorous and suspenseful intergalactic adventure, Aliens Ate My Homework follows the whimsical members of the Galactic Patrol on the trail of an evil alien criminal hiding out on Earth.

Based on the first book in prolific author Bruce Coville’s globally renowned “Galactic Patrol” series published by Aladdin Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing, Aliens Ate My Homework features the voice of two-time Emmy Award winner William Shatner (“Star Trek”)  and comes from director Sean McNamara (The King’s Daughter). The film also stars Jayden Greig (The Shape of Water), Lauren McNamara (“Summer of Dreams”), Kirsten Robek (The Edge of Seventeen), Dan Payne (Star Trek Beyond, Watchmen), Ty Consiglio (Wonder) and Alex Zahara (“The Man in the High Castle”).

Aliens Ate My Homework is a suspenseful family comedy which follows the adventures of sixth-grader Rod Allbright (Greig) and the extraterrestrial lawmen known as the Galactic Patrol. When a tiny spaceship flies through his window and lands on his science project, Rod and his cousin Elspeth (McNamara) meet a group of friendly aliens, including Phil, a talking plant (voiced by William Shatner). The earthlings quickly join the aliens’ adventurous mission to help defeat an evil alien criminal. After discovering the evil alien is disguised as a human – someone he knows all too well – Rod and Elspeth race to save the world from total planetary disaster.

Care Bear Care-Moji’s are fantastic

Posted on February 4, 2018 in 2018 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews

My 6 year old loves his Care Bear Care-Moji Figure from Just Play.  He is fascinated by it, and plays with it a lot.  He takes it to Grandma’s house, to show it off.  I love that he got Grumpy Bear, because that’s my favorite bear.  When he’s done playing with it, I will clean Grumpy up, and put him on my shelf.  I may be 42, but still a kid at hear.  I still have my original Grumpy Bear Stuffed animal.

The figures come in a little pink Care Bear Case, so you don’t actually know which one you are getting.  It was super fun watching Jacob open the figure, and the anticipation of which figure it would be.  I was secretly hoping for Grumpy Bear the entire time.  He didn’t really care which bear it was, he just knew he was getting a new toy.

Grumpy is so cute, and has his hands on his hips, so you know there’s something wrong.  I always do this, when I’m mad at my husband.  And, he just over all looks sad.  I’ve been there many a days.  And, take a look at Funshine Bear, he’s looking as cool as ever.  And, then there’s Cheer Bear with hearts in her eyes.  It’d be great to get any of these lovely bears.

Features

  • Figures stand 2” tall.
  • Feature unique stylized details.
  • Come in dynamic poses.
  • Great collectible size.
  • Perfect for play and display!
  • Collect all 13 figures!
  • Ages 3+​

What’s Included

  • Each Care-Moji Capsules comes with one hidden Care-Moji figure.
  • Each capsule sold separately.

Check out the magic of Shnooks

Posted on January 22, 2018 in 2018 Valentine's Day Gift Guide kids Reviews

Shnooks are so cute, and cuddly.  My 6 year old loves them.  We opened it, shook it, and he played with his Shnook for hours.  But, you can do more than just play with your Shnooks, you can get online, and play there.  They are so cute, and warm.  I can’t wait until we can go to Walmart to get some more Shnooks.  They are inexpensive, and your child will love it.

They grow 8x the size they start out.  That’s amazing.  I want one for me, I may have to go just so I can get one.  They are suitable for age 3+.

You can go here, to watch a video, and meet the Shnooks.  The Shnook, pictured above, Shazam.  She’s so cute, and so much fun, for my little one.  He even sleeps with her at night.  You can read more about Shazam, and the other Shnooks, on the link in this paragraph.

My sister in law gave a Shnook to a little girl she watches, age 3, and she just loves it.  Just as my son does, they play with their Shnooks together, and take them on mini adventures.

Stay posted to This Frugal Family for a contest, for Shnooks, very soon.

Posted on December 16, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide kids Reviews

Tangled:  Queen For A Day would be a great DVD for that special little girl, in your life.  Tangled is one of my favorite Disney movies, so when I found out about this DVD, I had to get it.  I watched it with my 6 year old, son, and he really enjoyed it as well.  There’s really nothing that says boys can’t watch too!  It really has a great story line, for the little ones.  And, it’s a series, so there is more to come.

 

Tangled: Queen For A Day will keep your child quiet, for a short period of time.  Not saying TV is a babysitter, but if you are going to watch too, be able to watch uninterrupted.

This would be a great added Christmas gift, this year.

 

When King Frederic and Queen Arianna go out of town to celebrate their anniversary, Rapunzel becomes QUEEN FOR A DAY! It may be her first turn as a leader, but Rapunzel is confident ’cause she’s got this! However, when a terrible blizzard threatens Corona and her parents, the Princess is faced with some gut-wrenching decisions! Can Rapunzel and her friends save the day? Bursting with action, music and fun, this thrilling adventure will blow you away!
