Dress Up Is Not Just for Halloween

Although I have boys, I do have nieces and I remember being a little girl!
Dress up, for boys or girls is always fun.  That's why I am letting this guest post happen!
How fun!


When people think of little girls playing dress up, they think of them wearing their mom’s high-heeled shoes, lip stick on their faces, and maybe wearing a big hat and sunglasses. Wearing grandmas and moms’ old cloths is not what children want when it comes to dress up. When they want to play dress up, they want to look like princesses or a favorite cartoon character. What is even more astonishing is that make believe dress up is not just for little girls any more. Little boys love to play dress up too and be like their favorite super hero or cartoon characters!


If you are looking for a Snow White outfit in a size 3, or a Spiderman outfit in a size 4, and it is not close to the Halloween season, then you are going to have a hard time finding that special dress-up outfit for your child or grandchild. Dress up is not just for Halloween anymore. Children are wearing these outfits all year round.

Birthdays are a special occasion, and children are having themed parties. Your little girl loves Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and wants a Little Mermaid-themed birthday party. You order an Ariel cake and get matching plates, napkins, and decorations for this special birthday party. That is not enough anymore. Many parents are also getting costumes for the birthday child, and sometimes the guests are encouraged to attend dressed up in a costume that matches the theme.


These special dress-up outfits are hard to find when it is not the Halloween season but can be found on the Internet all year long for a reasonable price. You can custom order just about any outfit your child likes and someone will make it for you. Many companies even make them child friendly by not using buttons and zippers, and using Velcro to adjust the sizes.

If you want to be the favorite grandma or grandpa, invest in some superhero costumes or maybe a Snow White outfit. These costumes not only make you the favorite grandparent, they also give your grandchildren hours and hours of make-believe entertainment.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
