My Thoughts:

We received this movie the other day and couldn't wait until the weekend to watch.  If you follow my blog regularly, then you have probably seen blog posts about Doc McStuffins toys, movies, books and more. That is because my girls are huge fans.  Ever since this show premiered on Diseny Junior, they have been avid viewers of this hit animated series. And, as they get older, the show is growing with new characters, story lines and more toys needing the Doc's help.

As soon as my girls saw me take the DVD out of the package they were quick to jump to my side.  Why? Because they have been asking for this movie since they started seeing commercials for it.  And, in the commercial they saw that the DVD included a cool toysponder bracelet, they had to get their hands on!  I tried to just let them have the bracelet...but, once they tried on, they couldn't stop asking to watch the DVD.  How could I say no, especially when I had two little girls dressed in their Doc McStuffins dress up costumes giving me puppy dog eyes?  But, you know what?  It made for a great movie as it was rainy and cold out. We were snuggled up on the couch under a warm blanket with popcorn, enjoying each other's company and this wonderful new addition to our growing Doc McStuffin's DVD collection.

In this new DVD, fans of the show will watch as Doc expands her backyard clinic to a magical new world of McStuffinsville.  Doc takes up the title Chief Resident at the McStuffins Toy Hospital, leaving room for over two hours of new episodes and catchy songs you and your kids will be singing and dancing along to.

Both of my girls agreed their favorite episode on the DVD was when Doc met her new baby sister, and learns how to care for her with toy Baby Cece.  They love being sisters and best friends and said now Doc would not the special bond of sisters.  Yeah, she had her brother Donnie, but you know...boys! -- Bella said. :-)

Like I said, we only have had this DVD for a couple of days, but that hasn't stopped my girls from watching it with me the other day, and then again after dinner with Daddy, and the next after school and again and again. I lost track after the fifth viewing.  But, I will say, I am loving the cute songs and heartwarming episodes that make up this new Doc McStuffins DVD.  And, we can't wait to add more DVDs from this hit series to our growing Doc McStuffins collection.

So, if you have a Doc McStuffin fan in your life, and have yet to pick up a copy of DOC MCSTUFFINS TOY HOSPITAL, you will want to make a point to do so soon, as it will make for a great movie night, or excuse to get in a few extra cuddles with your little one. :-)


I am excited to offer one lucky Inspired by Savannah reader the chance to win a Doc McStuffins Toy Hospital Play Set with Lambie Plush to surprise their favorite Doc McStuffins fan in their life. 

 I know my girls would go crazy for this set, especially the plush Lambie.

Attn: TMNT Fans -- Check Out the Out of the Shadows Gift Set Reveal, Makeup Tutorial and FREE Activity Book

Now Available to Own on DVD, Blu-Ray, 3D, 4K and Digital
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

Now that I have children it is harder to watch new movies when they come out, or television shows when they first air.  Usually my days are filled with animated movies and shows the girls are watching -- many we have already seen countless times, but they watch and act like it is the first time. :-)  But, I get excited now that the girls are getting older and into watching shows I grew up watching or stumble upon a show or movie they think is of their generation, but was around when I was younger.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one of those shows and movies that they stumbled upon and fell in love with, and I get to enjoy again with them, and live a little of my childhood and teen hood over with them, as I was a huge TNMT fan in my day.

And, now when it comes to playing dress up or acting out favorite scenes from a movie after we watch it, the girls have a growing TMNT costumes, masks and shells to put on.  My youngest, Bella, even has a life-size cardboard cutout in her bedroom of the turtles.  You walk in the room and the first thing you see is the turtles looking at you, and her princess vanity next door with masks and her turtle shell on the side. I never know what she will dress up as in a given day, but I know I will see her with at least one turtles mask on, especially when the animated series airs on television.

When the girls aren't watching the TMNT series on television, they will oftentimes ask to watch one of the movies.  And, what goes well with these types of movies?  Pizza, of course! :-)

So, we will do a family movie night with pizza, dress up and usually face painting.  You may recall a recent post I shared where I showed the face paint I did with the girls.  As I mentioned, I am in way an art, but love having fun with the girls and turning them into fun animals and more with face paint.  

While my girls will not be a TMNT this Halloween, one of their cousin's will be.  And, I made sure to share this YouTube makeup tutorial with their mom, so she can get some pointers on how to bring the whole costume together.  

How cool would this face paint look on your child or even yourself?...

The YouTube video made it look easy to, maybe I will try the next time we pull out the face paints for a Turtles night.  You can learn how to get this Turtles look here

And, now that I am talking about the Turtles I wanted to share a cool new TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS Gift Set that is now available, and would make a great surprise this Halloween for that special TMNT fan in your life.

As you can see in the picture above, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gift Set includes a collectible Metal Turtle Truck Lunchbox that could be used for Trick or Treating and 2 Double-sided Ninja Masks (all four turtle colors) that can be used for costumes, as well as both TMNT films- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Blu-ray Combo Pack and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Blu-ray Combo Pack.   

Bella is going to love filling her lunchbox and bringing to classes and picnics.  And, I can't wait to surprise her with these cute TMNT apple and Rice Crispy Snacks I found on Pinterest...

Ninja Turtle Apples ACTION FOR HEALTHY KIDS. Used edible eyeballs.:

Rice Krispies apple treat with M surprise inside with ninja turtle colors:

Any TMNT fan would love this gift set.  And, I wish you could have girls how excited my girls were when they opened the box the day and saw the gift set inside.  Before I could grab my camera, they tore the clear wrap off so that they could get to the goodies inside. :-) I couldn't blame them, as I, too, was excited to see what was inside.

This weekend we will be doing family movie night with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and lots of pizza, and wearing our favorite turtles masks.  

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows [Blu-ray]

Here is a film clip from the movie, if you were unaware of the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows release to Blu-Ray Combo Pack...

Why not make family movie night turtlerific by picking up with gift set, or even just the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Blu-Ray combo pack, to share with your family.  We can't wait to watch the movie and report back what we think.  But, being huge TMNT fans, I know we will love it!

DISH Debuts the YouTube App on Their Hopper 3 DVR

Preview image

I am gearing up to kick off my holiday gift guide next week and was going to start the week with a post a about DISH, after having yet another amazing customer service experience with this wonderful pay-TV provider, which I have had the privilege of partnering with for almost two years now.  I was going to talk about all their wonderful channel line ups, the Hopper 3 DVR which I shared about a few months and even their streaming service, and how DISH would make a great family gift.  Like this wasn't enough.  But, leave it to them to go and release the YouTube app this past Friday to make being a DISH subscriber even more rewarding.  With the addition to this app, available to DISH’s Hopper 3 DVR,  it will let you bring viral videos and original content from creators across the globe to your TV screen via set-top box. DISH customers can now access their favorite TV shows and the Internet’s most popular videos without changing inputs or devices.

More about the YouTube App Debut on DISH's Hopper 3 DVR...
"The YouTube app was included in DISH’s latest software update pushed to Hopper 3 set-top boxes last night. With this update, DISH becomes the only nationwide pay-TV provider in the U.S. to deliver YouTube via set-top box. YouTube joins several Hopper apps that together bring a range of entertainment options to customers, including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo and The Weather Channel.
Preview image
“We designed Hopper 3 to be much more than a conventional set-top box,” said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “By aggregating apps like YouTube and Netflix with live linear television, Hopper 3 is capable of serving as a household’s comprehensive entertainment hub.”
Users watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube every day, generating billions of views. DISH customers can now search, browse and play videos, as well as log into their YouTube and YouTube Red accounts, directly on a Hopper 3.
The YouTube app on Hopper 3 can be accessed from channel 371 or by selecting the “Apps” button on the remote control. Customers can also use the YouTube app on mobile devices to cast videos directly to their Hopper 3."
If you have been looking to make a switch when it comes to your pay-TV provider, why not consider DISH?  My family has fallen in love with DISH and will never go back to old TV providers, who lacked customer service and never offered new and innovative programming and services.  Since being with DISH we have experienced new channels being added monthly, new DVR capabilities, updated remotes and headphones and so much more.  I could go on and on about DISH, but I make you wait for my post next week.  Just wanted to make sure you knew about the YouTube App if you were a current DISH subscriber.
