Funny coincidence happened last week. I was rummaging through a resale store with my girl and we found some fairy wings that were just her size. She’s at the stage where she’s discovering that dress up is fun. She really had no idea what they were, but she knew she wanted them on. We drove back home and to our surprise found a screener copy of Walt Disney Picture’s newest “Disney Fairies” movie Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure forRead More ...

This HBO Latino series features both a dog and a cat that are so, but so cool that they´re bilingual and only need to go by “El Perro y el Gato.” The short episodes focus on simple pre-schooler topics such as manners, vacation, grooming and, the one below, sharing. The hyper active Perro says everything in English and then repeats it to to the ice cool Gato in Spanish.  The cat responds in short phrases which are usually written outRead More ...

When we watch movies at home with our girl, we have one rule:  movies in Spanish.  I´m always looking for DVDs that offer the Spanish language track and I especially love those that invest in hiring great and recognizable Latin American actors to dub the voices.  A lot of the times the Spanish version is even funnier than the original! Ice Age 3 Dawn of the Dinosaurs is one of those films. The Spanish version contains an all-star cast that includesRead More ...

Posted by: | 6 Comments

The Spanish version is callled “La Granja de mi Tío” and it´s just as catchy as the EnglishRead More ...
