All information was taken from the site of Dawn's Great Finds

New to Blu-ray™:
In the newly re-mastered, deluxe edition of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas BD, for some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some resident has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas “a fraudulent myth!” Skeptical Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses “and let up a little on the wonder why.” How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa’s jolly return to town – and the joyous finale of the animated fable inspired by Clement Moore’s poem and produced by the merrymaking conjurers of Rankin/Bass Studios. The voice talents of Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel make this festive fable even more fun.

Twas the Night Before Christmas BD Bonus Feature Includes:
  • Christmas: A Global Holiday – An animated comic book that explores Yuletide traditions around the world.
Twas the Night Before Christmas Deluxe Edition BD will be available in stores in a Blu-ray™ + DVD Pack which includes a Blu-ray™ and DVDin a standard definition edition on October 4, 2011 and will retail for $24.98 SRP.

Am I driving you crazy you yet with all the Christmas dvd reviews? I love love love them!!! Especially the oldies like this one, I grew up with this one. This is such a fun family movie. The story itself is adorable and yes, brings tears to my eyes.

Giveaway – Balloon Time Helium Balloon Kit – Ends 9/24/11

September 11, 2011

Balloon Time
Balloon Time’s Helium Balloon Kits are a super easy way to make your party special!
The kits include:
  • Portable helium filled tank that can be recycled when you’re done
  • Balloons
  • Ribbon
It’s really fun to have helium balloons for a special occasion, but I don’t like to have them filled at a store. It’s a bother to have to go to the store to pick up balloons just before the event when there are always other last minute preparations to do. And I just don’t like the idea of driving a car that’s full of balloons that will obstruct my vision.
Balloon Time is a much better option for me. I can pick up the kit days or weeks before the event and then fill them the day of the event.

There are clear instructions included, so it’s simple to fill balloons quickly. I love that the tank can be recycled.
Balloon Time also has some fantastic party planning ideas for a variety of types of parties. For Halloween, you can easily turn white balloons into ghosts and orange balloons into jack-o-lanterns. You can check out the Balloon Time Blog and the video below for party planning ideas. In addition to ideas for how to decorate with balloons, you’ll find ideas for Halloween themed foods, games, invitations and more.
HOW TO CONNECT - You can like Balloon Time on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
COUPON – You can print a $2.00 off Balloon Time coupon.
WHERE TO BUY – Balloon Time Kits are available at many retailers including Target, Walmart, Party City, Toys R Us and others.
PRIZE - Balloon Time would like to give a voucher for a free helium balloon kit to 1 of you (ARV $39.99)
Here’s what you need to do to enter to win ….

Rio Movie Night with h20 Giveaway

Beat the summer heat with family movie night! h2O®, the natural spring water in a revolutionary paper bottle recently partnered with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for the Blu-ray and DVD release of Rio.
h2O is a great way to offer today’s environmentally-conscious bottled water addicted drinker to still have that bottled water in a way that won’t fill up a landfill. h20 minimizes the consumer’s impact on the environment while at the same time provides a safe drinking experience with no danger of chemicals leaching into the water. They are mainly made of paper, a renewable resource and are completely recyclable.
clip_image001RIO, from the makers of the hit ICE AGE series, is a comedy-adventure about taking a walk on the wild side and it’s quite fun to watch and listen to. The music is FANTASTIC. Blu is quite spectacular himself. He is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart. Which is when all the adventure begins, not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers.  With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had. We all loved watching Rio.

Mosquito Repellent ThermaCell Lantern Giveaway

A few months ago I received a ThermaCell Lantern to take on our camping trip. You all know how our camping trip was a disaster in a way, and quite a lot of fun in another. We were rained upon until we ran out of clothes, that being said, the weather has not permitted me to fully test out the ThermaCell. I feel terrible about that, but with most of the country still in summer weather and full of mosquitoes I wanted to get this product out there for the rest of you to see.
Outdoor Lantern Next to Bag
ThermaCELL makes LED Patio and Outdoor Lanterns equipped with the most effective, environmentally-safe, odor-free Mosquito Repellent on the market.  ThermaCELL products create a bug free zone with an all natural extract, protecting you, kids, guests, food and pets all without spraying chemicals on your skin.  The lantern does not smell, is not harmful to humans, animals, insects, or the environment, keeping your deck or campsite light-up and skin bite free. I hope to get to test this product next summer.
The US Department of Defense tested it and deemed it to be 98% effective protection against biting insects, and sends it to the troops in the Middle East to combat mosquito and sand fly born diseases like malaria.  Visit for more information. The Lantern operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers that create a 15 x 15 ft comfort zone. Each repellent mat provides up to four hours of protection and each butane cartridge provides up to 12 hours of operation.

About the DVD
As summer heats up, spread your wings and celebrate with the funniest birds in town! The all-new comedy-adventure RIO comes to Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. RIO brings together vivid characters and colorful backdrops amidst energizing Latin and contemporary tunes, creating the ultimate family-friendly music and dance experience for audiences of all ages. In addition to more than one hour of special bonus features and materials, consumers will have access to all-new exclusive levels of the smash video game hit Angry Birds Rio® that showcase your favorite characters from the film!
Captured as a young bird from the wild, Blu (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network) is a domesticated Spix Macaw living thousands of miles away from his homeland, Brazil. When his human owner Linda (Leslie Mann, 17 Again) discovers that he is the last male of his kind, they head south to Rio de Janeiro to meet the only other female. But it’s far from love at first sight between the socially-awkward, flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel (Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries). Shortly after Blu’s arrival, the two rare birds are captured by greedy animal smugglers and find themselves lost in the Brazilian rainforest. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on a hilarious and clumsy adventure where they learn about friendship, love, courage and spreading one’s wings to fly.
The creators of ICE AGE bring audiences a whole new tropical adventure in RIO featuring the most colorful cast of characters south of the Equator, including George Lopez (Beverly Hills Chihuahua), Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock“), Jemaine Clement (Despicable Me), Rodrigo Santoro (Che), (Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa), Jamie Foxx (Dreamgirls), Jane Lynch “Glee“), & Wanda Sykes (Over The Hedge).
RIO will be available in a 3-Disc Party Edition, featuring the Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Copy, as well as in a 2-Disc DVD Party Edition. It is available in the U.S. and Canada.

It’s 157 days until Christmas…not that I’m counting. After all, it’s July! Still, as the swamp cooler groans about the heat, I’m inside threatening the kiddos with “Santa’s watching you?” Then our very own elf arrived from Elfing Around and now I have some true believers!
We have a shelf elf that through the month of December gets hidden and the children delight in finding her.  A few nights in, my husband has lost interest and by Day 10, we’ve run out of places to hide her. Lisa Huckemeyer, owner of Elfing Around, LLC, has some mad elfing skills because suddenly, I’m eager to start Elfing Around. Even my husband had a twinkle in his eye.
Elfing Around "Letter from Herbie Elf"
Elfing Around: "Letter from Herbie Elf, Jr."
Elfing Around Postmark
Elfing Around is detailed..check out the postmark!
Elfing Around is and ADVENTURE. It starts with a “Letter from Herbie Elf, Jr.” it’s even in an “official” envelope. The letter is a teaser letting children know that a very special Elf will be arriving. The parent simply addresses the letter and makes it noticeable a few days before the moment of reveal.  I love events that have a build up! Elfing Around is detail oriented. The post mark is an authentic touch coming from “Santa”. I love it!
Elfing Around: Elf with "I'm Here" Letter

On the day designated for the Elf arrival, the kit includes an Elf (new owners select boy or girl), and an ‘I’m Here. I’m Here Letter” along with matching Elf tattoos in a spot where your child can discover the Elf.
Elfing Around Parent Adventure Guide Book
Elfing Around: Parent Adventure Guide Book
From here the fun really begins. Every detail is planned out. There’s no “Where can I hide the Elf tonight?” Elfing Around comes complete with a Parent Adventure Guide Book. I am truly impressed by the clever adventure awaiting. On the inside of the book there is an “Elf School” that gives guidance and tips for the night’s mischief, while the outside of the page has a note to include with the Elf. There’s no drama over the set up, each adventure takes 5-minutes or less and most use common household items so there’s no need for shopping lists.
Elfing Around: Elf Adventures
Elfing Around: Elf Adventures with Elf Postcards
For 12 nights, suggested Elf Adventures (with COMPLETED Elf Postcards) transform the house while the children are nestled all snug in their beds. There are also some blank postcards included for the creative ones out there to create their own adventure.

There’s even some fun reading to keep kiddos thinking about school during Christmas vacation!
As the adventure unwinds, on Christmas Eve, the Elf is placed where Santa can find him/her and Santa will return the Elf to Lapland, North Pole until he’s ready to return for more mischief next year.
