Have you heard all the buzz about Disney/Pixar’s newest 3-D animated movie, “Brave”, and its fabulous female heroine? Yes, for the first time ever, Pixar has created a movie featuring a woman as its lead character and, from what we see in the trailers, Princess Merida is destined to become a star and a role model of brave and confident girls. Set in beautiful highlands of Scotland, independent Merida defies an age-old custom in an effort to lead her ownRead More ...

Bilingual Songs and a Caribbean Fiesta For Kids {Giveaway}

I’m always hunting for that children’s music CD—I’d be willing to bet we all are.  The one that’s entertaining, doesn’t grate on the nerves, the one we parents can play over and over at home or in the car and not just tolerate but actually enjoy. Those albums are kind of rare, and I find that children’s music in Spanish is often especially screechy.  So I was pleased when I received two CDs by José González and Banda Criolla toRead More ...

Kickin’ It With Disney

My son loves martial arts. He can talk about Bruce Lee and Jet Li for days. When we were invited to meet the cast from Disney’s Kickin’ It, how could we say no?

6 Reasons to Watch and Love Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins

Disney Junior's Doc McStuffins cast

Immediately after my girl watched her very first episode of “Doc McStuffins,”  Disney Junior’s new animated series, she ran over to me declaring: “Mamá, ¡soy doctora y quiero curar a todos!” (“Mom, I’m a doctor and I want to cure all!”) This was definitely something I was not expecting to hear just two weeks after she got the most painful shots on her arm at her last check up. She’d been complaining about it every single day and one episodeRead More ...

Hop on DVD {Giveaway}

We don’t go to the movies much…I’ve taken my boys to two sensory-friendly film screenings at our local theater and we didn’t make it to the end of the movie either time.  So I tend to prefer watching movies on DVD at home, and we were excited to preview Hop, the story of E.B., a computer-animated, would-be Easter bunny, and hapless slacker human Fred. I enjoyed the plot well enough, and was especially amused by the appearance of David HasselhoffRead More ...
