GIVEAWAY: Dougie in Disguise DVD from Organa Kids! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner

Dougie in Disguise Vol 1 is a cute show about imagination.  There are 13 short episodes where Dougie pretends to be something or someone.  They are really fun and my kids often ask to watch them.  I really like the one when he pretends to be a cloud :)  I also like how creative and super colorful the episodes are!

DVD Synopsis from website:
The story is about Dougie, an ordinary kid who lives with his parents. Follow Dougie as he explores the real and imaginary world. In each episode Dougie uses his sticker album and his imagination to become a different thing or person.  In every episode Dougie wears a new disguise and has exciting adventures with his friend, Tim the dog in a unique environment, with songs and beautiful animated stickers. It is a world of magic and wisdom where Dougie will overcome situations with his little dog. Ideal for the preschool age as Dougie interacts with the audience.

Episodes include:  Dougie in Disguise

REVIEW: Anytime Costumes!

After MUCH consideration my daughter finally chose a Jessie costume.  It was a hard choice because Anytime Costumes has a lot of great girls costumes to choose from!  The Jessie costume comes in a toddler size and small (4-6X)  The discounted price is $26.99 which includes the hat :):)  Shipping is a flat rate of $4.99 or FREE if your order is $39.99 or more.


This pose was her idea, I think it comes naturally with the costume.  It looks like her thumb is in a pretend belt loop..lol  My daughter loves this costume and I like it because it will last until Halloween and well after that.  :)  I like the quality of it, it doesn't feel like its going to fall apart.  The hat easily bends into the shape you want, but with that I don't think it can endure much rough play time.


....like this for example..lol  Don't worry, she didn't get hit. :)  Here are some other costumes for kids we liked that are on clearance:
Kids Clone Wars Pre Vizsla Costume - $14.99!
Boys Quality Iron Man…

REVIEW- Thomas & Friends: Movie Pack 3 DVD Set

Thanks to Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment I was able to review the Thomas & Friends: Movie Pack 3-Movie Dvd Set.  Each movie runs an hour long which makes it great for a family movie night.  My 2 year old son enjoys them the most since he has recently become a train enthusiast.  I love characters that encourage sharing, teamwork, and even imagination.  My son is constantly playing with his trains and I know that these shows have started that.

The movie pack set includes:

Thomas & Friends: Hero of The Rails
Follow Thomas as he discovers Hiro, an abandoned engine from a faraway land.  Fearing that Hiro will be scrapped, Thomas enlists the help of many friends, but mishaps, mistakes and one boastful engine could foil their rescue plans.  -Runtime 60 minutes

DVD Bonus Features
-Thomas and Spencer Racing Game
-Who's Pulling In the Station?
-"Go, Go Thomas" Karaoke Music Video
