The Jungle Book™ The Movie: Rumble in the Jungle presented by Kaboom! Kids


As a kid, I loved The Jungle Book as both a story and a movie. I also remember reading this story to my son when he was younger. So, I was quite excited to find out that a Limited Edition DVD is now available at Walmart and will be available nationwide in May of this year. I received the DVD and collectible toys to facilitate this review.

Plot synopsis: There’s trouble in the jungle, and as usual, Mowgli and Mani are at the center of it all! While they enjoy their time drumming away at logs in the jungle, Shere Khan plots to put an end to the noise. Meanwhile, Tabaqui is stuck in a well, Appu gets lost, and there’s something fishy going on at the Cold Lair… Will Mowgli escape the clutches of the evil Shere Khan, and manage to still have time to join his friends in the jungle rhythm? This action packed feature length film promises to bring you the best of The Jungle Book.

My son and I loved watching this one together over Spring Break and although it is appropriate for young children, it is just a great family movie! It also comes with special DVD features such as a downloadable kit, slide show, and exclusive collectible Mowgli and Baloo toys!

I have sensitive skin and sometimes find that it really is difficult to find a moisturizer with anti-aging benefits. Some products have been drying to my skin. So, I am thrilled that Olay has the New Olay Age Defying Sensitive Skin line-up. The products combines Olay’s anti-aging and moisturizing expertise to keep skin moisture levels balanced, and also help combat signs of aging, all while being suitable for sensitive skin. I received both the Olay Age Defying Sensitive skin day lotion with sunscreen (Broad Spectrum SPF 15) and the Olay Age-Defying Night Cream and am very happy with the results. The new line-up offers 24-hour moisture, with a moisturizing anti-aging lotion with SPF protection for day and a hydrating cream for night. The night cream also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves my skin soft but not greasy. I really have found the skin care products I have been searching for! Suggested retail price of $12.99-$14.99 where Olay products are sold. For more information on Olay products, check out their website.
