Disneynature's "Born In China" Advance Screening Passes Giveaway #Toronto #Vancouver #Calgary

Born In China Disney Nature

Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film "Born In China" takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence.

A two-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera— faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together.

Opening in theaters on April 21, 2017. 

Moviegoers who see Disneynature’s film "Born in China" during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

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.

 vtech

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.

Big Adventure on Kikoriki Island in New Shout!Factory DVD Release: Legend Of The Golden Dragon Giveaway (CAN/US)

 photo Kikoriki_zpskvqwtqpj.jpg

Teddy likes watching animated movies. He knows lots of characters and have favorite ones. This month Shout! Factory released new CG-animated feature Kikoriki: Legend Of The Golden DragonTeddy saw Kikoriki series before, they actually had another name but characters are the same. This time we were definitely excited to watch new adventures of Kikoriki Island inhabitants in their own movie Legend Of The Golden Dragon. Now this film is available on DVD and Digital HD.

The story follows adventures of residents of peaceful Kikoriki Island who love playing video games and enjoy their time. They would never have thought their life became similar to computer games filled with crazy adventures, flows and jumps. Kikoriki Island resident scientist invents an amazing device, a helmet called "the Improverizor". He presents it during special performance. It takes personality traits from one person and swaps them with someone else's. The device has levels of trading, when it starts with trading abilities at the lowest and goes to the total ex-change of personalities to the highest.

When spineless young Wally tries to use the untested device to cure his cowardice and learn how to fly, he ends up even more spineless – by getting accidentally body-switched with a squirmy little caterpillar. Wally gets "40" legs as a caterpillar and no hands to do something.

Now he's got more to fear than he ever dreamt, and so do his fellow villagers, as they're dragged into a madcap adventure packed with plane crashes, mistaken identities, erupting volcanoes and angry natives on the warpath. Do the Kikoriki Сrew wish they could switch places now – with anyone!

We loved watching Kikoriki Island folks, colorful and funny in new settings. The characters are and cute and family friendly that even little babies like watching them.

The DVD has a bonus feature which presents character profile and special egg-decorating kit with colorful and cute designs, would be very helpful for Easter celebration next month.


We are also excited to giveaway a DVD copy of new Kikoriki movie to our lucky reader. For yourchance simply fill the form below and good luck! The giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents & ends April 1st.

Be Our Guest - Disney's Beauty and The Beast is Now Playing In Theaters

New Disney live-action adaption of favorite animation movie Beauty and The Beast” is created to take us back to the lovely story and enjoy it in new settings. Though this up-to-date, action packed story does not follow the previous almost twenty five years old film, it brings fresh and modern upgrades influenced by time and the current world events.

Beauty And The Beast movie

Beauty and the Beast” follows the story of Belle, bright young women who lives in a small French village with her father Maurice. She is smart and beautiful, loves reading and helping others but considered a little odd by her neighbors-villagers. Belle does not want to marry everyone's favorite Gaston and ready for something better and bigger in her life.

Once her dad disappears in the forest, Belle decides to find him no matter what. Later she finds Maurice in Beast's castle who was taken as a prisoner for stealing a white rose. Belle offers to release her dad in exchange for her stay in the Castle. After a while, Belle, becomes friends with the castle’s enchanted staff and learns more about The Beast and his past.


The movie is filled with amazing computer effects, it was pleasure to watch. I saw it in IMAX and I think it was incredible. I think 3D version even more exciting. All the scenes in the castle, characters and decoration can blow your mind in a good sense. New “Beauty and the Beast” also has more songs adding few to old favorites. Along with famous and spectacular song and scene "Be Our Guest", The Beast gets his solo song and I think amazing one "Evermore". Most my favorite digital characters like Lumière, Chip and Maestro Cadenza are very successfully transformed from animated movie into live-action and made a great collaboration in new “Beauty and the Beast”. As for main characters I enjoyed amazing work of Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as nasty Gaston and Emma Watson as Belle. I like how Emma Watson plays and dances but I'd rather see her moving more like Belle in animated movie, more grace and ballet pas in everyday life.

“Beauty and the Beast” is a very successful live-action remake, now playing in theatres across Canada.

Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Hattie Morahan and Nathan Mack with Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson 
Director: Bill Condon

Personalized Mug from 5amily

I like personalized products especially the ones we use every day. They show that every person is unique and as gifts express love and care. Recently I received this cool mug from 5amily. It has my name on it and reflects what I like to do in my life: Drink chocolate, Cook and take Naps.

Mug Personalized

Speaking about my mug, I like it a lot. although it looks like regular 11oz. ceramic mug, the prints are well-made and good quality with glossy finish. I also like the company makes two prints, so no matter how you hold your mug you can see the message and other people can see it too (sometimes it very important). The mug is microwave and dishwasher safe, quite helpful for our busy lifestyle to warm up coffee, tea or milk for kids.

5amily company carries a wide selection of products you can personalize: from mugs, tees to bags and phone cases, everything to add a cute personal touch. It is only words on the items but very powerful ones. If you need some help with wording, 5amily has a very helpful short survey that gives you ideas how to personalize your items. It can be made for you or other people, based on hobbies, lifestyle, profession or even zodiac sign. 5amily also offers very funny, and I even say, sharp wording, that you can say OMG, exactly what I want to see on my tee or mug.

5amily mug

5amily products make wonderful gifts for any occasion. With upcoming holidays like Mother's Day, Easter or St. Patrick Day, personalized items are an excellent way to express appreciation and love. Plus they are very good quality and pretty affordable. 5amily often offers discounts to their customers. The company ships worldwide and provides quick delivery to shoppers in Canada, US and Australia.
