Hocus Pocus Anniversary Edition Makes Me Love The Movie Even More

Posted on October 16, 2018 in 2018 Halloween Gift Guide

We’ve spend every year, leading up to Halloween, watching Hocus Pocus.  In our home, this is a must see flick, every year.  So, recently, we sat down to watch, but this time, it’s the anniversary edition.  There’s more on this Blu Ray than just the movie.  There’s Trivia and Treats Edition, there’s Original 1993 Production Featurette, and there’s even a digital copy included.

My daughter, age 21, and I, along with my 7 year old, son, and husband, sat down and watched.  The Trivia and Treats Edition is excellent; with all the deleted scenes, fun facts and trivia, and more.  This is the Anniversary Edition, so they had to do something special, and they did.  You really need to go get this Blu Ray.  We will watch Hocus Pocus another 25 times, before Halloween.  It’s my favorite movie, for the season.

In Disney’s HOCUS POCUS, Academy Award(R) nominee Bette Midler (Best Actress, 1991, FOR THE BOYS), stars with Sarah Jessica Parker (SEX AND THE CITY) and Kathy Najimy (THE WEDDING PLANNER) as three wild witches who return from seventeenth-century Salem for a night of zany fun and comic chaos. After they’re conjured up by unsuspecting pranksters, the tricky trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth. But first they must outwit three feisty kids determined to foil their scheme! Filled with bewitching laughs and magic, this hilarious film is perfect for the whole family!|Producer David Kirschner came up with the idea for the movie one night while he and his young daughter were sitting outside and his neighbor’s black cat strayed by. Kirschner began to unspool a narrative of how the cat was once a boy who was changed into a feline 300 years ago by three witches.|Actress Kathy Najimy described her character Mary as “Eddie Haskell as a witch,” referring to the character on the classic TV series “Leave It To Beaver.” “She sucks up to Winifred [Bette Midler’s character] every chance she gets. She wants to be part of the power club and Winifred’s got the power.”|To create the costumes, designer Mary Vogt read many historical books about Salem, Massachusetts. “I even read diaries of women who were hanged as witches,” she says.

We love Bette Midler, in anything she plays in, so this is so great.  I also love Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy in this fun Halloween flick.  You don’t want to miss it.  Even if you’ve already seen it, watch it again, and if you haven’t seen it, watch it for the first time.  I remember watching in 93, and watching every year since.  Bring it home, and you can watch it any time.

Colortime has your Halloween taken care of

Posted on October 21, 2017 in 2017 Halloween Gift Guide kids Reviews

We love Colortime, in our house.  My son was so thrilled when he got a treat bag, that he gets to color.  He’s been working on it for about 3 weeks, now.  And, he’s still not satisfied, at age 6.

The fabric markers put the final touch on the treat bag.  (Also purchased from Colortime).  He loves his treat bag, and can’t wait to use it on Halloween.

This Halloween design is just like a regular Colortime item, but in addition, the ink magically glows in the dark! This tote bag’s design is made with ink that glows in the dark, but if you want to further enhance this special feature color this 15″ X 16″ (Full size) Halloween craft project with Colortime’s permanent fabric markers!

There are all kinds of fun things, that you can purchase from Colortime.  Including:  Pillow cases, tote bags, back packs, and t-shirts.  You will love Colortime, as well as, your kids.  There’s even free shipping on orders over $60.  You can’t beat this, if you want something memorable for your child’s class, or for your child.

Both of the bags, pictured above, are Glow In The Dark.  So they are perfect for Trick Or Treating.  They will make it memorable for any child.

Make sure to check out the Birthday Club, while you are visiting Colortime’s Site.

Make sure you place your order soon, so that you can get your package before Trick or Treat.

Lightboxarts are Great for Anytime of Year

Posted on September 29, 2017 in 2017 Halloween Gift Guide 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Reviews

Lightboxarts are so much fun.  They shine a little light on any subject.  From Halloween, to Christmas, to just a special mom, you can get them all over at Lightboxarts.

Lightboxarts are great.  They light up a dark, dull room, with their light.  You can get them in 4 different types of wood.  They really have made my day, and my 20 year old, daughter’s day.

I love the Halloween Lightboxarts, they will make our decorations a little brighter/scarier.  You can check out the Halloween choices, by clicking on the above or below links.

The Christmas Lightboxarts will light up the tree, a little brighter.  You can check out all the Christmas choices, too, simply by clicking on the link.

I just saw, on Lightboxarts, where you can get 10% off your first purchase.  Simply sign up for their newsletter, and get 10% off.  What a great discount.  Once you have one, you will love them all.  You won’t stop at one.  They are addicting.

My goal:  putting a Lightboxarts in every room of the house.  They make great night lights, and we can turn off all the big lights.  My 6 year old is afraid of the dark, so my house is lit up like day, even in the middle of the night.

Thirty-One for your Halloween Treat Bags

Posted on September 6, 2017 in 2017 Halloween Gift Guide kids Reviews

My wife loves Thirty One, so when we saw that they had Halloween items, she jumped in.  She said the treat bags are perfect, for Jacob’s First Grade Class’s Party.  She also loves the bigger bag, that can be used when 6 year old, Jacob, goes Trick or Treating.

The Cinch Sac is perfect for Trick Or Treating.  You can carry it from house to house.  It’s not so small that nothing fits in, or so big that 3 neighborhoods later, you are thinking, “why isn’t this bag full”.  It’s great for the night out, in our neighborhood.  I love it, and can’t wait for Jacob to use the Glow in the dark bag.  Available in Glow in the dark Lil Bones, or the Playful Pumpkin bag.

Key features:

  • Polyester
  • Drawstring Closure
  • Exterior Zipper Pocket
  • Screen Printed designs
  • Lil’ Bones screen print glows in the dark
  • Glow-in-the-dark thread available as personalization option
  • Monogramming and personalization options available, one line maximum
  • Approx. 18.5”H x 14.5”L

The Littles Carry All Caddy are perfect as well.  I plan on getting enough of these to work for my son’s classroom.  I always go all out for holidays, and Halloween is the first big one.  With the treats we put in the Carry All Caddy, the kids will be so excited.  I mean, the Carry All Caddy can be used over and over again, so why not?  I love the sturdiness of the Carry All Caddy.

 Key features:

  • Polyester
  • Mesh exterior pocket
  • Top webbed handle
  • Approx. 6”H x 5.5”L x 5.5”D
