TJ Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

The world-famous chocolatier, Willy Wonka, meets the rambunctious cat and mouse duo, Tom and Jerry, in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s release of Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the brand-new animated family film available on DVD July 11, 2017. Based on the beloved children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl, and the iconic musical family film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, this fun, new adaptation adds Tom and Jerry’s entertaining antics to the classic story of young Charlie Bucket’s unforgettable visit to Willy Wonka’s marvelous chocolate factory. Viewers will enjoy many familiar beloved songs, in this heartwarming and hilarious new film.

In this entertaining new film, Tom and Jerry meet Charlie Bucket, a young boy who finds one of five golden tickets, hidden inside the wrappers of Wonka chocolate bars. The lucky few who find a golden ticket are invited to visit Willy Wonka’s world famous chocolate factory and win a lifetime supply of chocolate.

Tom and Jerry Willy Wonka

As Charlie sets out to meet Willy Wonka, Tom and Jerry secretly accompany him. Along the way, they help him steer clear of the evil Arthur Slugworth, who tries to talk Charlie into bringing him Willy Wonka’s latest creation, the Everlasting Gobstopper. They also meet Augustus Gloop, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde and Mike Teevee, the four other kids who also find golden tickets and are invited to tour the chocolate factory with Charlie.

Favorite Tom and Jerry cartoon characters, including Tuffy, Spike and Droopy also join in the fun.

Get Outdoors, Jump & Celebrate Summer With Springfree Trampolines #SpringfreeYYZ

Captain America

I think every child loves jumping on trampoline. It is such a fun activity to enjoy and kids do not need to have special skills for that. Even little babies love jumping on trampoline. Though there is a huge selection of trampolines on the market, finding a reliable one is the big deal. Unless you want to record next American Funniest Video on trampoline, the safety is the first priority for this favorite children outdoor activity.

Springfree Office

I heard so many positive feedback on Springfree Trampolines, especially how safe they are and recently we had a chance to try a whole bunch of them at Springfree Headquarters in Markham thanks to Karen from Mommy Connections West Toronto. They were invented by father and engineer who was concerned about safety and decided to design a trampoline that reliable and safe for his kids. The latest line of Springfree Trampolines comes in different shapes and sizes with purpose to bring fun play and be safe. Trampoline is amazing play outdoor equipment for kids as it does not take much space in comparison to the size of the gym. You can install it in the backyard and keep kids busy for hours. It is perfect physical activity. Teddy was happy and tired after one hour of jump.

 Trampoline

For the safety Springfree Trampolines do not have strings, they designed with flexible composite rods instead and lie beneath the jumping surface. The metal frame is located beneath the jumping surface so kids cannot land on it. Flexinet provides flexible safety enclosure and made from durable but soft materials to prevent falls to the ground and keep jumpers safe. And the best thing - you can jump all year round, Springfree Trampolines easily survive winter and provide fun activities to kids when snow and colder weather hit the streets. We never tried but really want to do it one day.

Spider Man Springfree Trampoline

During the event we definitely had lots of fun. Wonder Woman and Spider Man were in attendance. Spider Man showed us really great jumps to prove he is the real one. Another feature Teddy liked a lot in trampolines is Smart Play experience. Four sensors on the trampoline mat connect wirelessly to a tablet. Using the body as the controller, the sensors track movement creating interactive experience. It is called tgoma and it provides a set of activities from math and language to trivia and other things which can be downloaded and tracked via sensors. Plus the games have different levels of difficulty so kids can learn & jump at the same time. There is also basketball hoop to combine your jump activities with the game.

DC Comics

I want to add that Springfree Trampolines are not only for kids, adults can use them and have fun with kids as well. For more information about Springfree Trampolines please check here and follow on Facebook or Instagram for latest updates. They offer a wide selection of trampolines for every family and every backyard.

Happy Jumping!

Lightning, Storm, Cruz & Racing Dreams in Disney Pixar Cars 3 #Team95

Cars3 Mater

Lightning McQueen is back on the big screen in Cars 3 and we are very excited to see him again. Though the story is about racing cars, tracks and training, we all like characters more than speed and their rank. In new movie it becomes obvious that Lightning McQueen days as a top racer come to the end as new generation of cars show up with high-tech enhanced speed, better sensors and computerized control. But the famous McQueen is not the one who easily to give up. After failing the next race, he sees that all the cars he raced almost a decade with are retired or intend to do so. As a result

McQueen decided to start training using the same program new high tech cars trained. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, who has her unique training style and a special plan to win. It was kind of experience but it did not bring much results to McQueen, his speed did not go up much. So Lightning McQueen decides to try another approach to training. With his new coach Cruz Ramirez, they head to the beach to make their tires dirty and then to my favorite part of the movie - the Thunder Hollow Speedway. There they experience Monster Jam along with Dirty Devil style racing, though it is crazy one but fun for sure. McQueen realizes that the life is not only fancy tracks and shiny trophies. During that journey Cruz Ramirez and Lightning McQueen learn a lot about each other. The racers struggles are often hidden inside and they tend to suffer alone. Cruz Ramirez, who all her life was inspired by Lightning McQueen success, never had a chance to become a racer though she wanted to. She encountered so many obstacles on her way, but her love for racing almost makes a good racer.       

Cars 3

Lightning McQueen visits his old teachers to see how they are doing after racing career is over. Everything is not that as bad as expected, lots of things to do and most important there are always cars who follow you, love you and inspired by you.

It is interesting that almost all McQueen's competitors are sure that he fails but still continue to check what he is doing. He has to be the winner, thinker, supporter and racing fanatic to make the decision he makes during Piston Cup Racing. Identifying racing talent and leading it to the victory belongs to #95 and who knew that this is going to happen.

We loved watching the movie; great animation, fancy racing cars and spectacular competitions. Though the movie has something for kids and something for grown-ups to think about, and it is about racing cars. Teddy likes Tow Mater & Miss Fritter. They make the story very funny and add some crazy nightmare-like features especially Miss Fritter’s school bus stop sign.

Cars 3 is a great movie for the whole family, now playing in theatres across the globe.

Show Loved Ones You Care with Fundles Special Packages #WelcomeHome

Fundles

Fundles is a care package company which sends fun sets for various occasions. Meticulously chosen items for packages are sending the right messages and bring lots of fun. Simply put, Fundles is the perfect way to express that you care about someone. It can be a co-worker in the office, business partners you are building relationships with, children at the camps, teachers at school or when your loved ones are sick and you want to cheer up and encourage them. Check Fundles packages and choose the best fit for the person or occasion.

Kikkerland Nightlight

I love the idea that you do not need to spend time thinking what to buy for people you care, if they are going to like it or not, browsing through the items trying to match one piece to another. The best way to give it to the professionals at Fundles who do their research and send the best care package you can find. You need to choose a theme, not a bunch single items and I am sure people who receive your gifts will appreciate your care about them.

Stash Jars Fred And Friends Stash Jars

I had an option to choose which package to receive and I really liked "Welcome Home" one. It has eight items in it: Kikkerland Lights, Kikkerland Dryer Balls, Kikkerland Nightlight, Kikkerland Log Pillow, Fred And Friends Stash Jars, Gamma Go Soap, Fred And Friends Pot Pinchers and V&A Foods Olive Oil. These items send a message of love and coziness that will remind recipient about your feelings toward him or her. When you open the package and start using the items, you will notice that each of them designed to represent a room in your home. For example, Fred And Friends Stash Jars, you use in your home office, Gamma Go Soap in a bathroom, Fred And Friends Pot Pinchers & V&A Foods Olive Oil in the kitchen, Kikkerland Lights and Log Pillow in a bedroom and Kikkerland Dryer Balls in the laundry room. You always see the items given to you in the house and they remind you that you are welcome home, you belong  here. Isn't that amazing!

Fred And Friends Pot Pinchers

Teddy loves all the items and found the place in house for each of them. Everyone from young cousins to grandparents like Kikkerland Log Pillow. It expresses positive vibes and reminds us about camping, fishing, BBQing and how great to be together as a family. Fred And Friends Pot Pinchers are Teddy's favorite, now he wants to hold everything hot with them and travel to PEI again. Kikkerland Lights and Kikkerland Nightlight are wonderful lighting solution for cozy home and relaxed atmosphere. V&A Foods Olive Oil is perfect for cooking and one of the essential items in our kitchen.

Gamma Go Soap

I find Fundles packages are very affordable, from $35 to $150 for Ultimate Bundle you can get great quality care package. Buying items separately would be more expensive than getting one designed package. As summer is almost here, Just for Fun & Lil Camper packages are the ones Teddy wants to get next.

Kikkerland Log Pillow

Fundles packages are perfect for schools, camps, corporate gifts, welcome packages, parties or just a token of appreciation to show that you care. For more information, please visit Fundles website and check them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

Kinzd Stylish Accessories for Everyday Use #FathersDay

Kinzd Wallets

The quantity and variety of cards we have these days is simply overwhelming. From endless number of credit cards, memberships, library and various loyalty programs, sometimes it is impossible to keep them organized. My biggest challenge is to separate the cards for immediate use in case you need them for a short period of time like for a day in an amusement park. I think Kinzd did a great job designing minimalist wallets exactly for the situations when you need to keep some cards, tickets, passes and cash handy without pulling massive wallet with all the items you need to survive on Earth.

Kinzd Minimalist Wallet front

I had a chance to try three Kinzd products, I definitely like the quality and soft leather material they made of. They are quite durable and do not have any "warehouse" smell. The first slim wallet comes in a variety of colors and I got nice sky blue one. It has six card slots, one ID window and one money or receipt pocket. The slim wallet also has RFID Blocking to keep cards safe and secure. The size is quite small and I like how easy it can fit front or back pocket. You can easily pull it out and find the items you need. Less worries and more confidence with this slim wallet. I found it very helpful when our family need to show passes or tickets in the park or attraction, we do not need to search for everything in our wallets, we just put what we need in one place and keep it handy. That way we spend less time digging our items and do not make ourselves and other people wait.

Kinzd Minimalist Wallet Blue

Second item we received is Money clip wallet that is similar slim wallet but it has pretty strong magnetic money clip to hold some cash. It is black and I find it very stylish. Money clip wallet is made of quality soft embossed full-grain leather and comes in a nice gift box. It has three card slots, one ID display window and one change pocket. It is also RFID Blocking Wallet. We found that magnetic money clip is quite helpful to keep some essential notes and even travel guides handy besides cash.

Kinzd Wallet Cash Holder

The last minimalist wallet we tried is key chain one. It is quite small and made of elastic material. It has two card slots, one money compartment and a coin slot. I think it is pretty small to hold cards unless you just need them immediately, but as a key chain with pockets we find it great for travelling and keeping necessary small items in one spot like hotel keys and travel cards.

Kinzd wallet

Kinzd.com has a wide selection of accessories for everyday use and special occasion. With upcoming Father's Day they have great gifts for dads, grandfathers, uncles and everyone who love quality products. We also find their minimalist items are perfect for travellers. They save time and keep you organized.

Gwen Stefani’s Kuu Kuu Harajuku: Music, Baby! DVD Giveaway CAN/US

Kuu Kuu Harajuku

For all fans of music and fashion there is an amazing animated series created and produced by Gwen Stefani called Kuu Kuu Harajuku. The series is about five girls and their journey in the musical world, ups and downs, interesting encounters, songs and  performances. The 2D-animated series currently airs on Family Channel in Canada and on Nickelodeon in the U.S.

Today animated series Kuu Kuu Harajuku is available on DVD in North America from Shout! Factory in collaboration with DHX Media. The first issue, Kuu Kuu Harajuku Music, Baby!, contains 14 episodes from Season One. Initial shipments of the DVD contain a code to download the Kuu Kuu Harajuku theme song (while supplies last). Kuu Kuu Harajuku Music, Baby! is available now on Amazon and ShoutFactory.com.

Gwen Stefani’s Kuu Kuu Harajuku follows the fun-filled adventures of the band HJ5Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G – through their super kawaii (cute) world of music, fashion and style. The inspiration for this popular animated series came from Grammy® Award-winning musician Stefani who wanted to create an animated series for girls that encourages and celebrates creative self-expression, imagination and individuality.

The show’s setting is inspired by the exuberant street fashion and creative youth culture of the Harajuku district but it takes place in a magical fantasy world like nothing you’ve ever seen before.    G is the lead singer of HJ5. She’s a natural leader and an amazing friend. She’s positive and enthusiastic, and fond of saying “Tick tock, time to rock!” Love is a fashionista, a great dancer, and cute as a button. She’s also a genius who often saves the day with her inventions. Angel is super chic, fun and enthusiastic. This fashionista has 325 pairs of shoes, and even her accessories have accessories! Music has a tough girl attitude, and is brutally honest. She brings a hint of edge and attitude to the group, and is fiercely protective of her friends. Baby sees the kawaii in all things: babies, puppies, rattlesnakes… She sees the good in everything, and also knows how to take care of herself. As G says, “Baby can charm the fire out of a dragon.”
Kuu Kuu Harajuku DVD

Then, there is Rudie Rhodes, HJ5’s well-meaning but semi-incompetent manager. He books the band on all sorts of gigs, and they are happy to play anywhere, but dealing with villains, aliens and general Harajuku weirdness makes it impossible for them to ever finish a concert!

The series is filled with great songs and lovely music stylish girls love to sing and play. Every girl the band HJ5 has unique style in singing, clothes and accessories they wear. Though they are cute,  Love, Angel, Music, Baby and G are strong enough to handle what their active life brings them every day. They may not win all the competitions but they love music and make great team!!!

We are excited to giveaway two copies of Kuu Kuu Harajuku Music, Baby! to our lucky US and Canadian readers thanks to Shout!Factory. Simply fill the form below and Good Luck! The giveaway ends July 1st, 2017!

Vixen The Movie Let The Powers of Animal Kingdom Help

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

 photo Vixen DVD_zpszfi0psly.jpg

Mari McCabe is a super girl to join The Flash and Arrow in the journey of helping people and using their superpower for good. Originally from Africa, Mari grew up as an orphan and has a regular girl life. She always wanted to know what happened to her family and only connection to them was inherited family's Tantu Totem. Once Mari McCabe realizes that this special totem gives her powers of animals like the speed of a cheetah, the strength of an elephant or the ability to fly as a bird.

One day Mari's sister shows up in the city . While it seems sister has answers to all Mari's questions about family, their past, violent killing and their native village destruction, Mari understands that the only thing her sister needs is that powerful totem for herself to use.

 photo Vixen_zps7womuvfl.jpg

As Vixen, Mari McCabe wants to help and protect the world against threats. Her super abilities catch attention far beyond her native village as Flash and Arrow want her to join their team. Vixen moves, jumps and flies very fast, her abilities are the best you can find in the animal kingdom. Often Vixen outperforms digital and computerized devices.

It looks like only Vixen's foster dad does not care to much about her abilities but more how Vixen feels and her safety. He addresses his worries and really wants Mari be happy and live in a safe environment. Vixen uses her powers to keep the city she lives in safe and keep streets free of criminals. Mari McCabe has her own opinion on how to use her superpower for good and many be does not even need anyone else in this journey to tell what to do and how, evaluate her abilities and compete. She just wants to be who she is and face the challenges her own ways.
