VAMPIRINA AT THE BEACH from Disney Hyperion Book Review

Vampirina At The Beach
On Sale: April 4
By: Anne Marie Pace
Illustrations by: LeUyen Pham

     Another winner from the Disney family.  Let me introduce you to Vampirina through her story Vampirina At The Beach.  

     This is such a cute story that both adults and kids alike will love it.  I'd be fibbing if I said that I can't wait for it to come to Disney Junior.   The story is well written, flows nice and easy that it is such a smooth read even for the beginning readers. 

     Obviously, it is about heading to the beach, but not your normal, its hot today, let us go to the beach, but to the beach when the summer moon is shining brightly over us, it is time to spend the night at the beach.  The story gives "tips" on what you should pack for your epic visit and what the first thing you should do when you get there (always be helpful).    Gives ideas on what you can do there, as there are so many things to do at the beach, and also, many good tips (in easy for kids to understand) on how you should act.

     The story line is great and is such a fun read and would be a treasure to add to your book shelf.  I think we can relate to Vampirina, she is girly, she is gothic, she is fun and loves her friends and family.
     What about those graphics?? I only shared a few pics, but wow!  The book is full of "jump off the page at you" graphics and colors. 
     And, one last word of advice, while you are sitting with your buddy, toasting marshmallows, telling stories and having fun . . . .Don't forget to make plans for your next beach adventure.

      Remember, book is on sale now from Disney: $16.99 US hardcover and also, REMEMBER Vampirina is bring herself and all her friends and family to DISNEY JUNIOR!!!! We can't wait, and I hope that you can't wait either.
DISCLAIMER:  Many thanks to Disney and Ms. McGinty for allowing Lollipops n' Ladybugs the opportunity to review this book.  We received a copy at no cost for our honest review on our blog.  All opinions are our own.

Sonic Underground DVD New Release from NCircle Entertainment and Giveaway

Yay! Another new April release from NCircle Entertainment and this time it is the one and only Sonic!!!

I grew up watching Sonic (and still have the video game) and I love the fact that I am able to introduce Sonic to my kiddo so that she can enjoy it as well.

Join Sonic (voiced by Family Matters Jaleel White), and his siblings, Sonia and Manic, as they fight to be reunited with their long-lost mother, Queen Aleena. In this second and final set of episodes, we return to Dr. Robotnik having his sights set upon Queen Aleena's crown jewel, which glows as it moves closer to her. Sonic, Manic, and Sonia need to recover the jewel before Dr. Robotnik does. They need to do this not only to find their mother but also to protect her from Dr. Robotnik. Will they succeed? When they aren't battling Dr. Robotnik and his henchmen, Sonic and his siblings make time for their rock band, Sonic Underground. With over seven hours of content, this final set is sure to showcase all the best Sonic episodes from the tunes to the great battles. Based on the popular SEGA videogame character, this Sonic the Hedgehog collection is a must-have for all Sonic fans!

This Volume 2 DVD (3 disc set) brings you 7+ hours of Sonic Underground including 20 stories and 20 bonus music videos (Running time: 420+ minutes)

Kiddo has watched a few of the shows, the music videos are her favorite.

NCircle Entertainment Dino Dan Trek's Adventures Dino Go Seek DVD Giveaway


If you have a kiddo or kiddos like mine, they love shows that they can relate to.  Over the years, we have found the NCircle Entertainment puts out those kind of shows and the kiddo absolutely loves them.   She has grown up on Sid The Science Kid, Room on the Broom, Dino Dan and others.

So, she was excited to see that one of the new releases this month was Dino Dan Trek's Adventures DINO GO SEEK. 

Dino Dan: Trek's Adventures - Dino Go Seek

Join junior dinosaur expert, Trek Henderson, as he imagines dinosaurs in the real world! During an indoor game of hide and seek with his friends and Grandma, Trek discovers that Microraptors use their natural abilities to hide with the best of them! Enjoy playing dino go seek and more dino game-filled adventures with Trek and friends!

Though we have just received the DVD this past week, she has already watched it numerous times and finds something new with it each time.  She loves going on these "adventures" with Trek.   Of course, she has always loved dinosaurs and loves learning about them, with her favorite being a Triceratops (I have to admit, I like that one too).  She told me what she likes about this DVD is that it is almost like she is right there on the adventure, and it isn't just one, but more.  I like it because it is fun and good entertainment for the younger crowd.  Not very long, so they won't get fidgety watching it. 

Would  highly recommend this DVD for the Dinosaur loving kids in your family.  It'll be a favorite for a long time coming.

This DVD contains the following stories:
*Dino Go Seek (her favorite she says)
*Train of Dinos
*Robots & Dinos
*Dino Clash
*Dino Racing

Running time is approximately 60 minutes.

You can also get the free App at DinoDan.com/DVD and scan a pic to see a Pterodactyl come to life.  Pretty cool!!!
