We  Hocus Pocus: Trivia and Treats Edition an exciting way to watch the movie!

 

BURBANK, Calif. (July 31, 2018) — One quarter of a century ago, three 17th century witches—Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy)—brewed the perfect magical movie for the whole family: Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action comedy/adventure “Hocus Pocus.” In celebration of the film’s silver anniversary, “Hocus Pocus” is being re-released to home audiences with a spellbinding new way to experience the film: the Trivia and Treats Edition. On Sept. 2, fans can watch it instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere, and bring it home on Blu-ray™.

“The 25th Anniversary Edition of “Hocus Pocus” includes the original theatrical film and the We  Hocus Pocus: Trivia and Treats Edition, featuring pop up video extras including fun facts, trivia, deleted scenes, cast and crew commentary, and behind-the-scenes secrets”… The Multi-Screen Edition of “Hocus Pocus” includes a Blu-ray and Digital Code giving viewers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices.

In “Hocus Pocus,” the Sanderson sisters are in for a devil of a time when their restless spirits are accidentally conjured up on Halloween night, in 1993 Salem, Massachusetts. Banished 300 years ago for practicing their sorcery, this trio of triple-threat demons vowed to one day reappear—and now they’re back—weaving an outrageous web of comedy and chaos. However, to guarantee their immortality, the things they need are the very things that could bring them down: Max Dennison (Omri Katz), his little sister Dani (Thora Birch), and the Allison (Vinessa Shaw), three kids with the power to make or break the witches’ spell. The film is directed by Kenny Ortega (“Hull High,” “High School Musical” series) from a screenplay by Mick Garris (“Sleepwalkers,” “Critters 2”) and Neil Cuthbert (“The Adventures of Pluto Nash,” “Mystery Men”) and a story by Kirschner (“Frailty,” “An American Tail”) and Garris.

Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero DVD

When we went to New York this year for the toy show our swag box showed up with the cutest dog.  We opened the package and we got an advanced copy of Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero.   I knew that my little guy would love it but even more I knew my nephew would go nuts for it.  Not only does he loves stuffed animals but anything with puppies is a must with him.

I saved this great set till we got to go visit my sister and it was a smash hit.  All the boys were running around like crazy and we all needed a break so we stuck the movie in.  They were all sucked in and watching in seconds.

Now as most of you know I normally do not post Spoilers but I was asked one question over and over.  Here it is no the puppy does not die do not worry.  I would normally not post that but I had a lot of parents worried that their kids were going to be heart broken.

This is a great story about how a lonely dog found his forever human and did everything he could to stay and protect him.  During a time of war, he helped save many lives including his friends.  He truly was an American hero.

We loved the movie and thing it should definitely be on everyone’s Holiday Gift Guide this year.  Just make sure to buy extra stuffed animals one for each kid. Lol

Beyond his military exploits, Stubby’s status as an adopted stray has resulted in nearly a century of recognition by animal rescues and welfare organizations and Fun Academy, as part of the film’s theatrical release, partnered with more than 90 regional and national animal organizations across all 50 states to shine a light on the human-animal bond and the amazing things adopted animals can do when given a chance in life.

 

About Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero … With the “War to End all Wars” looming, the life of Army “doughboy” Robert Conroy (Lerman) is forever changed when a little stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into a training camp in New Haven, Conn.  Conroy gives his new friend a meal, a name, a family and the chance to embark on an adventure that would define a century.

Narrated by Robert’s sister Margaret (Bonham Carter), Stubby and his new best friend quickly find themselves in the trenches of France. Befriended by French poiluSoldier Gaston Baptiste (Depardieu), Stubby accompanies the duo along their epic journey through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage.

For valorous actions above and beyond his small stature, Stubby is recognized as the most decorated dog in history and the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, showing the world that the greatest heroes can come from the unlikeliest of places.

About the Real-Life Stubby … Before he was a hero, Stubby was homeless, unwanted, unwashed and unloved, scrounging for scraps on the streets of New Haven, Conn. in 1917 Until he was taken in by Private First Class Robert Conroy of the 102nd Infantry Regiment, 26th “Yankee” Division.

In France, Stubby saw frontline action in four offensives and 17 battles. He found wounded Soldiers, saved an entire company by alerting the men to don gas masks and even caught a German spy. After the recapture of Chateau-Thierry, the women of the town made him an embroidered jacket that would serve as Stubby’s uniform and display his numerous awards throughout the rest of his career.

His exploits made front-page news in the U.S. and earned him the rank of Sergeant, the first time an animal is recognized as having been promoted through combat. Returning home to a hero’s welcome, Stubby and Conroy toured the country leading victory parades and met three sitting U.S. presidents, among other honors.

Robo Alive Scary Spider #roboalive #ZURUtoys

RoBo Alive

When I saw the Robo Alive they had some really cute Dinosaurs, lizards, and snakes.  I never knew they also had Spiders.  Ok I have to be honest I am deathly afraid of spiders and my son knows this.  I don’t think this could have gotten any better for my son.

Robo Alive

He has been chasing me around the house with this guy or should I say gal and he is having the best time doing it. Normally I would have hid this from him so I was not getting scared all day long but with Halloween coming up this is a must in any house.

These RoBo Alive are very fast, very realistic looking and will crawl right at you lol. So, me being the awesome daughter I am made sure my son knew my mom was also afraid of spiders before she came over.

Robo Alive

Ok now it is fun for me too.  My son thinks this is one of the best things in the world.  He has been having so much fun with it and the dogs are not amused at all.

This spider has long creepy crawly legs and the body is even fuzzy. This comes with the spider and the instruction booklet.  As with any new toy make sure to read the instructions. This is a real-life robotic pet, but next time lets think T-Rex because this is terrifying.  Now if you do have a spider lover in the house and you are not so much a spider lover think of the ROBO ALIVE Spider for the Holidays.  It’s the best of both worlds.  Your kids will get their realistic Spider and even though you might get scared once and awhile it will not be as scary as them bringing home a surprise pet. Lol

Oregon Trail #oregontrail

Organ Trail

Do you remember playing Oregon Trail in school?  I always remember when it was our day for computers I was so excited.  I would play as long as they would let me.  I would even spend my lunch time in the computers lab to play a little longer.

Organ trail

Now you can play again with you kids in this awesome board game.  When it came we were so excited a piece of our childhood has finally come home.  Now I can play the game I love with my little guy.

Organ Trail

This is a “ competitive strategy board game with every wagon out for themselves. In addition, the new game is tile-based as players ford the trail, discovering a multitude of pathways with each gameplay. With 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, The Oregon Trail: Journey to Willamette Valley will require strategy and luck as players race and search for their fortune in the West.”.

When playing this game with my little guy he is on my team.  It’s a little complicated for him but he loves to play on my team and help me make the decisions.

“To start, players will receive a wagon, family members, some food, and a pistol for hunting. As the play progresses, players will endure dangerous terrain and deadly calamities. The object of the game is to complete the perilous journey while keeping as much money as possible to start your new life. However, if family members die along the way, their funeral arrangements will be deducted from the player’s total fortune.”

Oregon Trail is a Target Exclusive game.  Also a must for the Holiday season.  You all know there is nothing better then a game night in our home. During the holidays we like to have a lot more game nights.  The cold weather a nice fire some hot coco and a great game can make a night so much fun.  I love a strategy game.  It keeps my mind going with the fun.
