The Muppets Are Back! Are You Ready?

It’s been 12 years since the Muppets’ last big-screen feature film “Muppets from Space” in 1999. Many of us were already convinced that was the last of the Muppets on a feature film and were somewhat satisfied with their new stints on funny viral videos. It also means most of our kids have never seen an original Muppets movie or show. That’s all changing now that the Muppets are back on the big screen in a Disney movie titled simply:Read More ...

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Space Adventure {Giveaway}

Disney movies have been my favorites ever since I was a child.  As a mom raising bilingual children, I have found another reason to love them even more.  Their movies and television shows always have a Spanish sound track with accurate translations.  Even the songs are in Spanish, not just the dialogue. Having children who are fans of Mickey Mouse, they were thrilled to receive Disney’s new movie Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Space Adventure.  This 45 minute movie had my boysRead More ...

Sesame Street’s ‘Put Down The Pacifier Day’ {Giveaway}

One of the reasons I love the Spanish language is because depending on the country you are from, there are a multitude of ways to say the same word. This coming week Sesame Street is launching an initiative to help children “Put Down the Pacifier.” In Spanish we would say something like the “dejar el chupón” initiative. Well, actually when it comes to the word chupón that would depend on which Spanish-speaking country you are from. The initiative could easilyRead More ...
