Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns on Blu-ray/ DVD for Family Fun and Lovely Songs | #MaryPoppinsReturns

Mary Poppins Returns DVD
Mary Poppins Returns made a significant effort to show that our childhood dreams never disappear but rather continue to exist and come back. Lots of things changed since Disney’s 1964 Mary Poppins release. Jane and Michael are now grown-up and have children to take care of. Their life takes the burden of regular adults, expected to work, support families and pay loans. Michael’s kids Annabel, John and Georgie even question if their dad ever was a kid. With lots of happening in Michael’s life, it is hard to see what is truly matters. After losing his wife, Michael is on the way to losing his home too - unless he presents father’s stock certificate to the bank.

Mary Poppins returns with a kite run. She is elegant, immaculate and special; she brings fun to every moment of life, making everyone think that magic is a normal thing. Mary Poppins sings and dances, every day with her is an adventure and it is everywhere. Regular bath can turn into a beach party and a colorful bowl is a place to experience animated adventures with circus, chase and horse riding. 

Jack, London’s lamplighter gladly joins Mary Poppins and kids in their magical adventures. Together they make Cherry Tree Lane a fun place to play. I like how kids learn to see through the pretty looks and identify who is a good person and who is not.

The movie is filled with songs and dance, and I think sometimes Jack outshines Mary Poppins showing many talents. Teddy liked watching the movie; his favorite parts were songs and kids adventures on the beach and with Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy.

Mary Poppins is brilliantly played by Emily Blunt to my opinion. She is the perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any task into a fantastic adventure. Her confident attitude is contagious, everything is possible and being unusual and strange is a new normal.

Mary Poppins Returns is now available on Blu-ray/DVD and Digital to enjoy the magic and sing-along while watching!

Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd, it inspires people around the globe to connect with nature and support our environment. The love for nature starts from an early age. By helping children appreciate the importance of the natural world, we can help them begin to recognize how important nature is in our life and how important to protect it. Positive experiences with nature at an early age can help children develop a caring attitude and encourage them to follow more environmentally-friendly actions in the future. It is great to see characters on the screen like Ranger Rob who inspire kids to get outdoor and explore the nature so that they can learn to help protect and foster the future health of our planet.

Best Car Seats of 2019

Stroller 2019

If you have a child or are preparing to have one, you'll need to buy a car seat. Car seat requirements change as children get older, so you'll need to find one that meets the necessary specifications and your child's needs for their age and weight. In addition, you'll want to find one that's suitable for the type of car you drive, for your lifestyle and personal preferences. If you travel a lot, you'll want to find one that works for the different modes of travel you use. Below, you’ll see our detailed list of the best car seats for 2019.

 Infant Car Seats

Best Car Seat for Infants: Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat and Base

This car seat works well for infants who weigh from 4-30 pounds. The energy-absorbing foam provides additional protection from side impacts. There is an insert that accommodates smaller babies; this can be removed as the baby gets older. You'll know your baby is secure because you'll hear a click when the keyfit is attached securely.

Best Infant Car Seat for the Cash-Strapped: Onboard Air 360

This rear-facing car seat works well for infants who weigh between 4-35 pounds. Car safety experts designed it to provide excellent protection from side impacts. It's made of race car foam to absorb more energy, and the reinforced handle provides more stability.

Convertible Car Seats

Protect the Environment and Your Baby with The Clek Foonf Convertible Car Seat

This car seat can be used front-facing mode for children 30-49 inches tall weighing between 22 and 65 pounds. It can also be used in rear-facing mode for children 25-43 inches tall weighing between 14 and 50 pounds. It's compact but still provides important safety features. These include a 5-point adjustable padded safety harness, a steel rebound protector, and an adjustable headrest. It's built so that if you're in an accident, the impact is distributed through it's specially designed energy-absorbing shell. The fabrics don't use bromine or chlorine to protect against fire. This makes it ideal for environmentally conscious parents.

Looking for Easy Installation? Check out the Advocate Quicktight Convertible

This convertible car seat grows with your child. It can be used in rear-facing mode for babies weighing 4 to 40 pounds, in a front-facing mode for toddlers who weigh from 20-65 pounds, as a booster seat in the high-back position mode for children weighing 30-100 pounds, and the backless belt positioning mode from children weighing 40-120 pounds.

Another Good Convertible Car Seat: The Graco 4-in-1 Convertible Car Seat

This car seat will last from birth to 10 years old and accommodate children who weigh between 4 and 120 pounds. The adjustable harness system has 10 different positions and changes easily. It's been tested for side impact safety with its 5-point harness system, and crash tested to meet or exceed the US standard FMVSS 213. The level indicator makes it easy to tell if it's been installed correctly, and the seat adjusts to six positions to ensure your child is comfortable. The plush inserts provide additional comfort, and the seat cover can be removed easily without removing the harness. There's also a storage compartment to hold harness straps that aren't used in booster seat mode.

Combination Car Seats

Best Combination Car Seat: Britax Dualfit Combination Harness-2-Booster

This combination car seat transitions from a forward-facing 5-point harness seat into a belt-positioning booster seat. This new release from Britax covers your child from 25 pounds and at least 2 years old to 100 pounds, and it's the least expensive booster of this type. You can use harness mode until the child reaches 65 pounds; when you change over to belt mode, the harness tucks inside the seat.

Booster Seats

Best Booster Seat for Smart Toddlers: Affix Youth Booster Seat with LATCH System

If your toddler has figured out how to latch themselves into their car seat, this is the best one for them. It provides a secure connection to keep the seat properly in place, and it's easy for more independent children to latch themselves in. You can use the front adjustment to tighten the booster seat to the vehicle seat quickly and easily. It's been side-impact tested and crash tested to meet or exceed the standards in FMVSS 213. There's also a cup holder under the base of the car seat. Other important features include a deep seat structure that protects the child if there's an accident and soft foam for added safety and comfort. You can machine wash the seat pad. If you have a car that's equipped with the LATCH system, you can click the car seat right into place.

Take Your Baby Around the City Comfortably in Bubblebum's Backless Inflatable Booster

If you're looking for a car seat that fits your busy city lifestyle, check out the Bubblebum Backless Inflatable Booster. This car seat inflates and deflates easily. This makes it ideal for parents who must take taxis everywhere. It's designed for children between 4 and 11 years old who weigh between 40 and 100 pounds. When it's deflated, stick it in your knapsack or diaper bag for safe keeping.

The material it's made from is like the material life vests are made from, and it contains memory foam and a strong webbing harness to help keep its structure. The side clips keep the lap belt over your child's pelvis. It comes in different colors and patterns and exceeds US Motor safety standards. It includes a clip to keep the adult seat belt in place.

These are the best eight car seats available. When deciding which one to buy, ask yourself the following questions:
  • How much do I want to spend? 
  • Do I want to buy a convertible car seat so I can spend less money? 
  • Do I plan to buy different cars as my child gets older? 
  • Do I plan to have more children, which will make it necessary to buy a larger vehicle?
No matter what kind of car seat you decide to purchase, make sure it fits your budget, receives good reviews, and meets your lifestyle needs.

Sesame Street - Celebrate Family DVD Review and Giveaway | Shout! Factory

Sesame Street Celebrate Family DVD

Sesame Street Celebrate Family is recent DVD release from Shout! Factory Kids. It includes five family stories from popular Sesame Street series. The stories cover different families and how characters deal with some difficult situations. These are some topics you can find in the release: relationships between parents and kids, grandparents and grand kids, siblings rivalry, family support, close friends and family traditions.

Sesame Street Cookie Monster

Different situations are presented in each episode. First story shows every family has own habits and tradition. It is fun when they are not same and perfect opportunity for kids and parents to learn about each other. Abby's family has dinner at Elmo's house and while one family thinks it is better to play before dinner, another family prefer to do it after dinner. In this episode both families find interesting way to make a meal together and enjoy the dinner.

With upcoming Mother's Day and Father's Day two stories are dedicated to these special family holidays. Cookie Monster realizes he's forgotten a gift for his mommy for Mother's Day. But every time he prepares a cookie for his mom, he gets crazy and consumes the cookie even paper one. Cookie Monster's friends offer one solution and another but nothing works. Finally Cookie Monster finds out if  he shares a cookie with his mom, that would be great for everyone! For Father's Day, Rosita wants to make a video for her dad, but she needs some help from her friends. She does not realize that for her dad it does not matter if she acts shy on the video, he loves her anyway. The video does not have to be perfect for dad to be happy for her daughter.

Next we meet Rudy, Abby's new stepbrother! And finally, Hooper's Store is throwing a special party for kids and their grandparents.

Sesame Street episodes do not only show family stories but also teaches how face challenges young kids and families encounter in real life. I like that the stories positive messages are presented the way that even little kids can understand and follow by example.

Sesame Street Celebrate Family DVD has beautiful family songs to enjoy and three bonus features. Our favorite is fill-length episode Sibling.

Sesame Street Celebrate Family DVD is available for purchase on Amazon, Walmart, and other e-retailers. Plus we have a copy to give away for our readers. For your chance simply fill the Rafflecopter form below! The giveaway is open for US and Canadian residents & ends April 17, 2019!
