Celebrate Earth Day Weekend With Disneynature's #BornInChina Movie, Now Playing in Theatres

Born In China

Disneynature’s new film "Born in China" takes audiences on an exciting journey into the wilds of China.

The movie presents wild nature scenery in China which regular people have rare chance to see and experience. The film follows the stories of three animal families, whose life, struggles, love, care and adventures keep you on the edge of your seat. I can even say it is a documentary about real life of panda, monkey and snow leopard families. It is a whole wild world that exists with own rules, participants, struggles, joys and survival.

If you saw pandas in Toronto Zoo, then in wilderness these cute animals are having even more fun. While panda mom Ya Ya is busy rising her first baby Mei Mei, she shows how loving,caring and protective she is. There are amazing scenes in the movie when Ya Ya and her cub are cuddling together. There are also lots of funny moments with growing up cute and curious baby Mei Mei who explores the world by means of mishaps under protection of caring mother.

BornInChina Snow Leopard

On China’s Qinghai Plateau, the highest mountain plateau on Earth live snow leopards. They are very difficult to locate due to their camouflage, precise vision and harsh environment conditions they live in. Snow leopard's white to yellow fur with a gray-and-black pattern helps them easily hide and come almost invisible to others. In the movie we follow the story of Dawa, snow leopard mother with two cubs. She fights for food and tries to keep the area she lives in safe from other predators. While snow leopards look beautiful and athletic like big cats, their life quite harsh. Low temperature, high altitude, snow, steep mountains - not many animals can survive this severe weather conditions. Raise a family becomes a challenge and real struggles make you stronger or kill you.

Next bright wilderness family to watch is golden snub-nosed monkeys. They live in the mountain valleys of central China and swing branch to branch in the leaf forests. To us it was first time to see monkeys like that. They are totally fun to watch, especially how big monkeys jump from one tree to another, almost never miss a branch. Tao Tao's adventures start when his family decide he is no longer need to be under mom's and dad's supervision and do not accept him back into the family. The movie shows those moments when Tao Tao is no longer a baby who needs protection and he has to start his own life as grown-up and build a new family. The conditions change a little when winter comes, so everyone in the family tries to stick together to survive (exactly as it sounds) cold winter days.

I think we learned so much after watching one movie. There are more animals presented in the movie like migrating chiru and flying cranes, you can feel that everyone is connected to each other. Viewers enjoy spectacular scenery, breathtaking images of nature and the wild life otherwise you probably will never see in your life. The best thing is that all of them are real creatures of our planet, who are living, struggling, fighting, rising families and being happy every single day.

The movie opens in theaters on April 21, 2017. Moviegoers who see Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film "Born in China" during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards in China.

Natural Skin Solutions From SBT Seabuckthorn

SBT Seabuckthorn

Sea buckthorns are used for centuries to treat various disorders, reduce inflammatory conditions and skin irritations like acne, eczema and dry skin. This powerful plant is used in making skin care and anti-aging products for its healing and soothing effects. It is also used to treat tumors, asthma and heart disorders.

Now all those sea buckthorns benefits you can find in the products of Canadian company SBT Seabuckthorn. Based in Vancouver this company focuses on making natural healing solutions. They carry wide varieties of items from oils, teas, skin care, mom & baby products, cleansing bars and hair care.


Recently we had a chance to try sea buckthorns skin care and were impressed with quality and positive effect on the skin. The product I tried first was SBT Seabuckthorn Anti-Aging Skin Cream. Containing pure organic SBT Seabuckthorn oils, this cream helps to fight wrinkles and smooth fine lines. It is absorbent but not quite fast, so you need to massage it a little bit. Getting older makes me choose my skin care wisely and focus on skin care which effectively nourish and rejuvenate my skin. SBT Seabuckthorns Anti-Aging Skin Cream carries multiple rejuvenating benefits, it penetrates deep into the skin, moisturize, and nourish it making it soft and young. I like the cream being all natural, odor free and vegan. I use it during the day and very happy with it as it is perfect base for makeup.

Eczema and Dermatitis Soothing Salve

Next product we tried was Eczema & Dermatitis Soothing Salve. This 100% natural salve became Teddy's saver this year. Our little man had eczema patches on his hands and while we could use some prescribed medication we decided to try the natural SBT Seabuckthorn eczema salve. The problem is that these patches do not disappear easily, while treating them Teddy still experienced effects of cold weather and getting dry skin on his hands. We did not need to use much of the salve but we had to use it almost every day, because Teddy goes to school, spends some time outdoor and involved in other activities. When temperature changes, indoor and outdoor conditions make his skin irritated. Eczema & Dermatitis Soothing Salve is pure silk and absorbs pretty fast. It is very effective in healing, moisturizing and protecting delicate child skin against dryness and irritation.

Seabuckthorn nutritional skincare is great addition to any beauty routine and perfect treatment for healing an irritated skin. For more information about seabuckthorn berries and their positive effects, please visit SBT Seabuckthorn.

Vtech Baby Amaze Pretend & Discover Kitty New Doll To Play and Learn

Baby Amaze Kitty vtech

Baby Amaze™ Pretend & Discover Kitty is new innovative toy for little babies to play with. This soft doll dressed up as a kitty designed to introduce your child to new world of play and fun. My niece treats this doll as a baby who wants to play. Recommended for children ages from 12 months to 5 years, Pretend & Discover Kitty gives the ultimate play experience for kids, encouraging them to interact and take actions.

I think kids intuitively understand that they play with a baby who pretends to be a kitty and wants your child to join that game too. With multiple funny phrases and sounds, children find that they spend very good time together and learn something new. I feel that children not only play but also are encouraged to take some responsibilities as they copy their parents and think that the kitty is their own baby. They play together various game, sing, dance and fall asleep. This plush kitty  is great for snuggles and safe for play, it is so soft, that kids love hugging her and having nap time together. If you press doll's tummy, little ones will hear some facts about kittens, four catchy sing-along songs, learn how to count from one to five and the days of week. At the age of 12 months children learn a lot and fast.


Teddy thinks nowadays little kids (younger than he is) get very cool toys. I also agree with him. I think my niece is very lucky to play with new vtech toys showing her pretend plays and teaching numbers, singing and interaction. I am also sure she will grow up as an animal lover, treat them with respect and take care of nature. Everything starts at young age: learning, care and respect.
