Mily Season One DVD and Kiwi Season 1 DVD from NCircle Entertainment Giveaway

     It is summer time, but we still enjoy being indoors on those hot humid days and when we are, it is DVD time for the kiddo.  She has quite a few things that she likes to watch, and most of the time, watches them over and over and over again until I have the episodes memorized.  I know some of you Mom and Dads can relate to that.

     Some of her favorite DVD programming comes from NCircle Entertainment.  They always have family and kid friendly shows and we love to watch them. Two of their latest releases are Mily Miss Questions Season One and Kiwi Season 1.  

     Mily Miss Questions has 24 episodes and a run time of 175 minutes.  Some of the stories include: Family Portrait, Lovers, The Tomboy, In The Name Of The Law, Free! and It's Not My Fault.  

Join Mily, a funny and inquisitive 8-year-old girl, as she embarks on adventures hoping to answer the many questions she has about life, people, and the world. In this collection of twenty four episodes, join Mily and her friends as they investigate everyday situations from learning how to deal with fear to playing by the rules to using your imagination and so much more. Whenever a particular situation raises a question worthy of examination, Mily is immediately on the case! From one episode to the next, through everyday situations, Mily introduces young viewers to the art of questioning in order to further develop an inquisitive mind.

     Kiwi Season One has a run time of approximately 135 minutes.  Your child can learn phonics skills with Twiki and Twini.  Some of the stories include: What a Big Chicken, The Giant, The Snowman, The Little Dog and Twini's Birthday. 

It s time to learn phonics skills with Twiki and Twini! In this collection of twenty six episodes, Twiki and Twini will take us on fun and educational adventures to discover new words and new sounds. In each episode, Twiki and Twini encounter different objects themed together such as animals, trucks, and more! As each object is presented in the episode, your little one will then watch as Twiki and Twini spell the word out phonetically in fun, illustrative letters that resemble the word being spelled out with their friends. For instance, when spelling out chicken the letters resemble a chicken with its feathers and legs. Each adventure continues with a total of four to five words being spelled out in each episode. In this Season 1 collection, your little one will learn how to spell colors like red and blue to food words like fruit to animal words like snake . The fun and learning never end with Twiki and Twini! Get ready to enter into an unexpected universe comprised of sounds, words, and images.

Zim's MAX FREEZE for Muscle & Joint Rub Review and Giveaway

     I have been a fan of Zim's products since my first review.    The products have always worked and went on with relative ease and were non-greasy.  I can't tell you how many aches and pains that they have helped with.

     This time we got to do a review for Zim's MAX FREEZE Gel. 

Zim’s Max-Freeze Gel
Paraben & Sulfate Free!May effectively help relieve pain from:
  • Sore Muscles & Muscle Sprains
  • Back, Shoulder, Neck Pain
  • Painful Ankle, Knee, Hip & Elbow Joints
  • Muscular Strains
Greaseless, vanishing scent formula.
Organic ilex, aloe & arnica plus vitamin e and tea tree oil.

     I can tell you this, this product came at the right time!  My husband works in a field where he is climbing in and out of feed trucks, tractors and combines on a continuous basis and when he gets home from work he can barely move.   For a few days in a row, I applied this product to his neck and lower back, a couple of times a day and he said it really made a difference.  It helped with the soreness and the stiffness of being bounced around all day long.  

     It goes on smooth, and leaves no greasy feeling.  I do have to warn you though . . .when you are putting it on, it is cold.  Wicked cold.  Yell out cold.  But he continued to allow me to put it on him as it was making him feel better.  The relief lasted for a while before he was ready for more.  

     It does have a menthol smell to it, but it really isn't bad.  Just remember to wash your hands after using.  

     Product is for external use only and 12 and up.  Please see directions and warnings that are printed on the back of each of the products. 

     Husband gave the product and A.  He says he will continue to use it.

     If you are looking to purchase this product, it is available at Amazon, Walmart, Rite-Aid and more.  Just check out the Zim's website for where it is available in both the US & Canada.  

     Of course, thanks to the folks at Zim's you can enter right here on our blog for your chance to win your own tube of Zim's MAX FREEZE.  Just check out the rafflecopter entry form below and enter away.

The Gumazing Gum Girl in Gum Luck Book Review

Disclaimer:  I received an advance Uncorrected Proof copy of this book, free of charge for our review on our blog.

Gabby Gomez is back for more gum-tastic adventures! This time she must face her first villain—but she isn’t alone. The second book in The Gumazing Gum Girl series, GUM LUCK (Disney-Hyperion | On Sale June 13, 2017) by Rhode Montijo, with Luke Reynolds, illustrated by Rhode Montijo, brings new characters and more gummy fun that will keep readers cheering for the world’s stickiest superhero.  With a gum-scented reversible cover and bold, bright illustrations, the bubbly Gum Girl is back in action.

Part of the Gumazing Gum Girl series.
180 pages
Ages 6 - 8
Grades 1 - 3


Review:  The kiddo is actually still reading this book and she loves it.  Which kiddo couldn't relate to being like Gabby Gomez?? When she chews gum, she turns into a super-stretchy, super-sticky superhero!  I think all of us would like to be able to that.  But Gabby being a good kid, promised her folks that she would never ever chew gum again, but then, a new villain shows up and Gabby and her friends must take him on.  Will she continue to chew gum and fight the good fight or will she stick to her word and never chew gum again??

You will have to read it to find out, we won't spoil the story.  

Oh and get this people!!!!! Your book, will have a gum scented reversible cover, how cool is that?? The kiddo, even though she hasn't finished this book yet, already wants us to get the book so she can experience the gum scent.  We will include a couple pictures from the book, but please be advised, this is an uncorrected and unfinished copy.  Your book will have bright, jump off the page illustrations, and don't forget the yummy gum scent!!!



Another winner from Disney Hyperion.  The kiddo thinks that this would make a good children's TV series.  

Please be sure to check out the first book in the series: The Gumazing Gum Girl: Chews Your Destiny.

Many thanks to Ms. Cassie McGinty and Disney Publishing Worldwide for letting us have the chance to enjoy the adventures of The Gumazing Girl.  We look forward to her next adventure.
