After posting what my 6 year old had to say about the holidays, I was asked by a lot of you to share exactly what my stylish guy was wearing in his OshKosh B’gosh videos. These are some of my favorite classic boy holiday styles from OshKosh B’gosh.
Although I was the final judge of everything, he proudly picked out all of these clothes himself! It’s nice to shop in OshKosh because whatever he grabs I know it will be cute and look great on him.

What is the funniest thing your kid has ever said about the holidays?
The Good Dinosaur Roarin’ River Game definitely has a nice twist. It is not just about getting your dinosaur to the end, but everyone! Yes you need to work together as a team, just like Arlo and Spot do in the movie. If one of the dinosaurs gets swept away by the rapids everyone loses! A game that promotes teamwork amongst siblings? Yes please!
Not to mention it is a lot of fun! You get to build the game board as you play, which means it can be different each game.
Oh no the rapids!!! Oops!!
I was excited to see the Disney Imagicademy Activity Books while I was in New York. This took some of my favorite apps for the kids and brought them to life outside the phone. They encourage your child to learn, explore, experiment, and of course have fun with their favorite Disney friends!
The books come with their own supplies and a pencil pouch to hold all of them in there. It clips right into the book, making it ideal for travel and cleanup time. I could see these being a great addition to any homeschool class.
In the Animals set, Mickey and Friends help your kids explore the world of animals around them. Like using a glow pen to learn how Nocturnal Animals see at night.
Or find tiny insects using magnifying glasses!
The Science set with Elsa and the crew encourages children to experiment with the world around them. Create your own snowflakes, discover patterns, and even learn about weather patterns!
See rainbows everywhere with special glasses!
Have you played Disney Pictopia? It is our family game night must play. I am the reigning champion of course because well, Disney. Now available is Star Wars Pictopia! This new game covers a galaxy full of Star Wars from Episodes 1-6 to The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars pictopia is not only ideal for the family but could help settle disputes from you die hard Star Wars fans as to who knows the most trivia in the galaxy!
The game board is different from the Disney version, and is more of a peg board. You still use the wager system when it is not your turn and the dice has some surprises like when you land on The Force!
All of these awesome Wonder Forge products are available for purchase at Target, Toys R Us, Amazon, and more! For a complete list of retailers and products visit WonderForge.com
What is your favorite game to play as a family?
Thank you to Wonder Forge for sending over these fun games and activity books! All opinions are my own.
In the opening we get a sense of wow. Visually stunning, The Good Dinosaur makes you wonder if you are really watching a Disneynature film instead of an animated movie. The diversity of the landscape is amazing and really allows the audience to appreciate how beautiful this world really is.
The Good Dinosaur centers around Arlo, and his journey to overcome his fears. That made for a lot of “jumpy” times, meaning there were moments when something dramatic happened that caused all the kids to jump!
My favorite character in The Good Dinosaur is Spot. In this film, the dinosaurs are the highly evolved ones and we are still stuck in the caveman days. While Spot does not talk he communicates similarly to a dog and his large expressive eyes convey his feelings. As someone who highly enjoyed Wall-E for it’s lack of dialogue, I like that there are a lot of moments when it’s not words that tell the story but actions.
The entire theater of little kids started howling just like him. I still feel like the animators watched my son and then came up with this guy.
Balanced with the suspenseful scenes are the funny ones. Growing up watching Sam Elliot in westerns made me appreciate his character even more. I think all the parents will love his wily story about how he got his scar!
There are definitely some sad times in The Good Dinosaur. I remember seeing the trailer and tearing up at the part when Arlo talks about his lost family. During the movie which reminded me of The Land Before Time with Lion King aspects there were 2 or 3 times that really got me. For the kids, my daughter was saddened by one of the final scenes and my son was saddened by the loss of someone special. But overall they enjoyed the movie and were eager to see it again.
The Good Dinosaur will keep the kids engaged from start to finish, while tugging at your heart strings and your sense of adventure. Arlo has a lot to learn out there in the big world, facing his fears is just the beginning.

The game allows you to race against your favorite Disney, Disney Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars characters. Not only are all your friends here, but so are their vehicles.

If you are a fan of old school racing games with way better graphics then this is the game for you. I grew up playing those games but this is way cooler for me since I can race with my favorites like Minnie and Stitch!
You can race 2 player on a split-screen, so go ahead and challenge your friends. The variety of tracks set this racing game apart from your typical kart racing games. Racing through movie worlds, looking for star coins, rail jumping, and the variety of vehicles (loving the spinning tea cup) make the Toy Box Speedway unique and a must have addition to your Disney Infinity collection.
I forgot to mention in my post about the Toy Box Takeover, when you play these expansion packs new items are opened up in your Toy Box Hub and Toy Box Store. After playing the Takeover, Merlin’s tower appeared near Cinderella’s Castle. The Speedway unlocks some rings of FIREEEEEEE ahem Rings of Fire on the Hub track.
This expansion pack is perfect for the racing enthusiast in your house, providing hours of fun in Disney Infinity 3.0!
PS: I saw lots of great deals for Disney Infinity 3.0 coming on Black Friday! Pick yours up today if you haven’t already!

Take a spin on the tea cups, listening for a letter sound, then twist the handle fast to spin the teacup into the letter that makes that sound. Hop in the bumper cars to match the upper and lowercase letters. Then enjoy a parade with your LeapFrog pets!

Plus what little kid doesn’t enjoy “hammering” on something!
