New Peppa Pig DVD: Bubbles


On December 2, Peppa Pig will be back but this time in a 14 episode DVD titled Bubbles. This lovable, cheeky little piggy will be up to her usual activities – playing games, dressing up, visiting exciting places, making new friends and of course, jumping up and down in muddy puddles!

I received the New DVD to review and this is so much fun! My son is now too old for Peppa Pig but I do remember the days when he used to watch her shows. Peppa is still a likable little character with fun friends that love to have fun. This DVD is very entertaining and will delight pre-school children. The DVD includes 14 fun-packed “peppasodes” (As Seen on Nick Jr.) There are 12 + 2 Bonus episodes. This would make a great holiday gift or stocking stuffer this holiday season!

New Peppa Pig DVD for the Holidays! Peppa’s Christmas


Join Peppa in this All-New fun-filled holiday special as Peppa and her family celebrate the season. This is such a fun DVD for young children! It’s so entertaining to see Peppa and George write letters to Santa and get into the whole Christmas spirit. There are sun adventures besides Peppa’s Christmas. There are 12 different “peppasodes” full of fun. I do think my favorite was Peppa’s Christmas.

Did you know that this holiday season, Peppa Pig, the #1 preschool show on Nick Jr., is coming to the U.S. on DVD not just once, but TWICE! So, if you have any pre-school children, this is a Must-Have this holiday season! Your young children will have so much fun singing and dancing along with Peppa Pig.

Lights! Camera! Anamazie! New Children’s Book Tells the Tale of a Young Turkey’s Rise to Cinematic Stardom


Who doesn’t fantasize about becoming a big movie star, living up all the glitz, glam and glory that comes with it?  A talented little turkey named Anamazie Marie LaBelle sure does, only her dream becomes reality in the delightful new children’s book Gollywood Here I Come!, written by director/choreographer-turned author Terry John Barto, which waddles into stores and online November 11, 2014, just in time for Thanksgiving.


Growing up in the small town of Gobbleville, Anamazie studied acting, singing and dancing while basking in the local spotlight as a star baton twirler.  Opportunity comes knocking when the competition Gobbleville’s Got Talent gives Anamazie her shot at being discovered.  With her mom Henrietta at her back, she makes it all the way to the finals, but falls short of the top prize. That is where her path to stardom truly begins as she is discovered by a talent scout, is cast in her first movie and declares “Gollywood, Here I Come!”


With colorful whimsical illustrations by Mattia Cerato, Gollywood Here I Come!  taps into current pop culture trends of TV shows like “America’s Got Talent” and “American Idol; and the public’s fascination with celebrities and movie stars.  At its heart, the story leaves young readers with the positive message “You can do anything if you work hard and never give up.”

We received a copy of this book and it really is a delightful story for young children! I really love the positive message of “You can do anything if you work hard and never give up.” The illustrations are bright and fun and a Must Have for children ages 5-8.
