Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween Review #Goosebumps2

When I was a kid, Goosebumps was naturally one of my favorite series of books. I loved the thrills and the chills that you would find nestled between the pages.  As I got older, my love of Goosebumps was forgotten, until I had kids of my own.

All three of my boys have discovered the series, which brought back fond memories of my early reading experiences. I loved seeing my boys get lost in a good book with RL Stine; we checked out so many at the library and ordered a number from Scholastic over the years.

We were huge fans of the first Goosebumps movie. All three boys couldn’t wait to watch it when it first came out! We loved the fun storyline and ended up purchasing the DVD naturally! When we heard there was another Goosebumps movie, all three boys, even the older ones who are exploring more advanced reading materials and more mature movies, we’re excited for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween.

Trick

This is such a fun movie for the whole family. In the film, two friends find a magic book, and with it, they bring a dummy to life; Slappy, and he brings havoc to the home, the school and everything in between. Attempts to get rid of Slappy the Dummy are unsuccessful and this leads the kids to contect RL Stine. We were so glad to see Jack Black reprise his role!

Goosebumps 2 is tons of fun for everyone. It is suspenseful, funny and the perfect movie to watch around Halloween, or anytime you want a family-friendly film that everyone will enjoy. My entire family raved about Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. I am sure your family will love it too!

Zombie movies are all the rage these days, with the fun of popular programming geared at adults, it is no wonder that kids are loving this zombie phase in pop culture. Finally, there is a family-friendly option that kids are going to love. Parents might feel the same way about Disney’s Zombies on DVD.

My boys had a lot of fun with this latest Disney offering. It is filled with fun, music, singing, dancing, and friendship. I love that the kids can get a dose of zombie fun without the guts and gore.
The story takes place at Seabrook High School. After an accident at the power plant many years before, the town faced a zombie problem. Luckily some handy wristbands allow these zombies to live with humans. But, the humans are not always so kind to the zombies, and they are segregated in their town.
Eventually, the zombies are allowed to attend school at Seabrook High, and Addison, a human forms a strong bond with Zed, a green-haired zombie, and together they learn to embrace what makes them unique and appreciate how they are different.
This is a cute option for the kids, I love that with this film you can give them a taste of zombie fun while extending their innocence by eliminating the need for guts and gore! The DVD features bloopers, deleted scenes and more for an all-around fun time! Get it on 4/24 when it hits shelves!

Puppy Dog Pals Takes Your Kid On A New Pup-Tacular Adventure

I am a huge fan of Puppy Dog Pals and so is my son Clay! He absolutely loves this show, we watch it almost every single day, whether it is a re-run or a new episode. So when I got this DVD in the mail it was like a Christmas present arrived just for Clay. He opened it and instantly was smiling ear to ear. We recently got a dog, Lola, and that has made him love this show even more.

What I love as a mom is that this show is full of great lessons, clean fun for my son, and of course adorable dogs that fill our television screen. With each new episode, Bingo and Rolly set off for a new adventure to help out Bob in one way or another. Whether it is delivering a mother’s day card that Bob dropped walking out the door, or finding a way for Bob to play the drum in the instrumental portion of the band at the end of the night. These two dogs and their sister Hissy create wonderful ways to help out their owner, Bob!

Puppy Dog Pals

April 10th you can bring home this exact 2-hour DVD that is full of Puppy Dog Pal episodes! There were a few of our favorite episodes and a couple we hadn’t seen yet. When I asked Clay what he wanted to watch the other day, he went and grabbed this DVD. This was his smile saying, “Please mom, puppy!” With a face like that, it was hard to say no to!

This DVD is great to take with you when you are on the road, just pop it into a portable DVD player and let your kiddos enjoy the show while you travel. I love watching kid shows like Puppy Dog Pals that are entertaining for mom and the kid, and this show is just that. Clay loves Bingo, Rolly, Hissy, and Bob, and I do too!

Celebrate Disney’s Bambi 75th Anniversary Edition – June 6th on Blu-Ray & DVD

Bambi DVD

As a child, I grew up with Disney movies like Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians and of course, Bambi! Being able to share these classics with my children gives me a chance to give them an appreciation for classic films in a context that they can grasp and I can relive my own glory days of getting lost in the imaginative world of Disney.

I always regale my boys with a story about my Bambi bedroom set. Yep, I had the sheets, curtains, and bedspread as a little girl! Some of you might appreciate that sentiment, as it was quite a big deal to 8 years old me!

Bambi has been released again to celebrate a special milestone, it’s 75th anniversary! Featuring the classic tale of friendship, love, coming of age as well as a lot of fun bonus content! You will be able to enjoy the timeless tale of Bambi as well as view the interview with Walt Disney discussing the challenges and victories of creating the film, deleted scenes and so much more.

Released during WWII, in 1942, Bambi grabbed the hearts of Americans and has held on for ages. This is one of the top movies in this history of animated film, even after 75 years! The artwork in Bambi is exquisite, and it took over 5 years to create the film as it is all hand drawn!

If you are looking for a way to reconnect with a story from your childhood or a way to share an appreciation for artistry with your kids, you are going to want to get a copy of this! I think that all families will want a copy of Bambi in their collection to enjoy for years to come!

On June 6th you can grab this DVD or Blu-ray to share with your family. It will be available both in store and you can get it on Disney Anywhere too.

If you have a fond memory of watching Bambi as a child, or with your children, I would love to hear about it. Also, if you happened to have the same bedroom set for a child, make sure you leave a comment to reminisce with me!
