PatPat Affordable Matching Family Outfit For Any Occasion ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘• | PatPat Shopping ๐Ÿ›️

I think we are sold on PatPat matching outfit styles. A couple of years ago we received a matching outfit for Valentine's Day with a huge heart and Bestie design. It was a fun twinning experience. Now Teddy outgrown his sweatshirt and it went to a younger cousin, but my adult version of Valentine's Day outfit is still a huge hit for a special day. 

PatPat is a global leading children's apparel e-commerce brand, known for their fancy clothing styles for families and affordable ones. Kids grow fast and they do not need expensive clothes to last a few months, but rather a cute outfit that fits and is made of cotton, wool or cashmere. 

A couple of matching outfit sets we selected for a special occasion include Family Matching Leopard Print Colorblock V Neck Belted Short-sleeve Dress and T-shirts Set and Short-sleeve Cotton Ribbed Colorblock T-shirt and Allover Heart Embroidered Mesh Dress Set. These are just a few of many matching ideas customers can find on the PatPat web side. The selection is always changing adding new styles according to season, lifestyle and preferences. 

The dresses fit me perfectly, especially the shoulder part, looks like PatPat's size S is the right size for me. As for Teddy we decided to order a men's size matching T-shirt because he is tall and kids sizes do not fit him even though he is only 12 years old. We liked the clothes' design, they are not plain and have a nice combination of colors.

The third set we liked is Family Matching Allover Dinosaur Print Drawstring Ruched Bodycon Dress and T-shirts Set. We chose this casual outfit set for home and everyday activities. All T-shirts we received are very soft and contain 95% cotton.    

Overall, we are happy with our selection of PatPat outfits. I like the idea of creating matching sets for special holidays and gatherings. You do not need to spend a fortune to have fun together in matching clothes, for both little ones and grown-ups. Life is full of special moments and for every occasion like St 'Patrick's Day, Mothers' Day, Easter and many others,  you can find something at PatPat. The items often go on sale every season.

Plus if your kids like some TV characters, this year PatPat launched collaboration with MGA Entertainment’s L.O.L. Surprise!  The first release presented L.O.L. Surprise! Valentine’s Day collection for girls that featured MGA Entertainment’s L.O.L. Surprise! dolls in different patterns and styles. The dolls are featured on PatPat’s colourful short-sleeve tees, pullovers and hoodie sets. And that's not all, there are many licensed character outfits you can find online like Paw Patrol, Care Bears, Peppa Pig and many  others!

Jim Button and The Wild 13 ๐Ÿด‍☠️ Adventure Film DVD ๐Ÿ“€ Release | Shout! Kids ๐Ÿš‚

New live-action adventure film, based on the children's novel Jim Button and The Wild 13 is available on DVD in North America for the first time today, September 13, 2022. It is a sequel in the classic Jim Button children's book series. 

Based on the best-selling children’s novel of the same name by German author Michael Ende, the charming book followed the success of its preceding novel, Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver

Twelve-year old Jim and his best friend, Luke the Engine Driver live on the tranquil island called Morrowland. The island is pretty small and there are only four or five people who occupy this island. Nevertheless, ships often stops at Morrowland to deliver mail or some people come to visit it. 

Dark clouds are gathering over the tranquil island of Morrowland, the home and his friends. The notorious pirate gang “The Wild 13” has learned that the dragon Mrs. Grindtooth has been conquered by Jim and Luke and now the pirates swear revenge! To protect Morrowland from another threat, the two of them set off with their steam engines Emma and Molly on a dangerous journey where Jim's wish might also come true: he wants at last to find out the truth about his mysterious origins.

The beginning of the movie is a little slow and seems familiar. But once Jim Button and Luke leave Morrowland to find Mr. Tur Tur, a full array of events folds out and catches your attention. The interesting thing is that the characters travel on water using locomotives, not boats. To travel faster Luke transforms Emma into flying vehicle to reach a desert where Mr. Tur Tur lives. “The Wild 13” pirates move quickly, they are hard to catch and fight. No one ever won a battle with them. Unfortunately, the gang abducted the second locomotive Molly, so Jim and Luke have no choice other than find the pirates and save Molly

The Emperor offers help by providing a battling ship with a military crew to fight “The Wild 13” pirates. It was such an experience for everyone to meet a pirate team where all looked the same, all twelve. We first thought they are clones but it turns out “The Wild 13” gang is duodecaplets!

Do not want to give the spoilers but everything finishes well in the end with some twists and surprises.  

Jim Button and the Wild 13 is directed by Jupiter Award winner and Sundance Film Festival nominee, Dennis Gansel (The Wave, Before the Fall, We are the Night). The feature film’s magic was celebrated in film festival screenings worldwide and was a winner at the Animago Awards, Bavarian Awards, German Film Awards and Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

Let's Glow Studio Fun Kit To Craft Glowing Outfit for Videos ✨ | #LetsGlowStudio

LetsGlow Studio is a creator kit of reflective fashion accessories to light up glow parties, sleepovers, or group gatherings. When I first watched videos on TikTok where kids were using LetsGlow accessories, I thought they applied special filters or used app effects. But when we got LetsGlow Studio ourselves, I found out that the idea behind the kit is simple and it is quite easy to use.  This influencer video creator kit does not require any app or filters, and can be used on any photo or video streaming platform like TikTok, Instagram or YouTube.

LetsGlow Studio kit comes with a variety of non-toxic adhesive reflective sheets, and over 65 ft of reusable reflective materials to use in your videos. There are also 3 stencils to craft some shapes for your outfit like a heart or a flower, 6 hair clips, 1 pair shutter shades glasses, reflective nails sticker sheet, double sided reflective thread rolls and reflective gloves. Alphabet letters stencil is very helpful to cut out letters you need and design your own messages. 

Everyone can create  their own custom shapes they like, just use reflective sticker sheets for your projects. 
Once your design is ready, attach the LetsGlow LED Clip to any tablet or phone camera and control the reflective LED color of your accessories using the remote control. Light up your accessories and make fun and unique videos with your friends and family! You can choose the shade of your LED color via included in the kit remote control. You can also keep one color in your video or apply the sequence of colors using a mode on your remote. 

There are lots of ideas on how to use reflective materials. For example, Teddy cut out a word LIKE using alphabet stencil and attached it to his shutter shades glasses. He also used thread rolls and a moustache in his videos . It was entertaining to make those videos, they look funny! I think we are going to shop for more adhesive reflective sheets because Teddy has many ideas in mind on how to use them in his TikTok videos. 

The holidays are just around the corner and this time of year represents the perfect occasion to prepare for upcoming festivities, buy gifts and plan gatherings. LetsGlow Studio makes a wonderful gift for both kids and adults, for everyone who loves fun activities. Even if there is no opportunity to meet and have fun in person, there are also ways to share videos and create online video messages including duet.  

LetsGlow Studio is designed for kids ages eight and up and available at Indigo, Walmart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Mastermind starting $24.99.

Celebrate Magic Bag's 30th Anniversary ๐ŸŽ‰ - A Magical Touch Of Comfort | #MagicBag30

These days when everyone is facing stress and uncertainty in the future, taking care of yourself advances to the next level. Although you can’t control the world around you, there are ways you can take control of your health and well-being. From taking a break from chores to connecting with yourself through meditation and yoga, there are many ways to focus on self-care and improve your mental health! 

Aside from exercising or going outside for a walk, some of the best options to help you unwind can be found in the comfort of your own home. Quality self-care products can quickly put you in relaxation mode and support your physical and mental health.

When it comes to self-care, first what comes to mind is Magic Bag, a company that produces Canada’s favorite hot cold compresses to ease pain and relieve stress. For thirty years their quality products became wellness favorites and helped thousands naturally relieve pain and find comfort.

To celebrate the company's 30th anniversary, Magic Bag launched several new amazing products for the whole family to complete its collection of hot and cold compresses. 

New additions to Magic Bag's "Spa Chic" line include aromatherapy wrap, heatable slippers and aromatherapy eye & sinus mask. Tender elegant satin fabric, used in these products, makes your relaxing experience a pure luxury in addition to the aromatherapy session they provide. 

"A Touch Of Comfort" Gift Set belongs to Signature Collection and launched this year to celebrate Magic Bag's anniversary. It includes a classic Magic Bag hot/cold compress and a mug with a matching print which represents a touch of love, friendship and family.

Our children feel and experience stress the same as adults. They need help to deal with it in healthy ways. Stressed parents, school, sports, extracurricular activities, assignments and many other factors affect children's well-being. Magic Bag has a whole line of animal shaped compresses Warmy to provide therapeutic comfort and pain relief for little ones ages 3 and up. The children compresses look like plush toys, and this year kids get a new addition, a cute puppy called Raph The Dog. It is ready to soothe little ones and gives soft hugs. Every plush in Magic Bag's collection has a name. They look like cute children's plush toys, but they are definitely more than that!
