Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast screening at the Walt Disney Studios!

Disney Studios

Disclaimer: I received an invitation to the Walt Disney Studios for an exclusive screening of Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

To say that I am a Disney fan is an understatement. I grew up with movies like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Jungle Book, and Sleeping Beauty on constant repeat in my home. I watched The Little Mermaid so many times that my brothers would even hide the VHS from me so that they could watch something else 😉

As an adult the obsession didn’t end, once my son was born I counted the days until his 1st birthday for many reasons, but one of them was to celebrate at Disneyland (of course I talked my husband into getting season passes so we could return often as a family). My son quickly became a Disney fanatic as well and even loved the show Handy Manny so much that I decided to theme his 1st birthday party with décor based on the Disney Junior show. We even decided to go on a Disney Cruise as our first major family vacation!

I’m sure with this little glimpse into my long-time love of all things Disney you can get an idea of the level of excitement that I felt being invited to the Walt Disney Studios for an exclusive screening of Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast before its release to DVD and Blu-Ray.

Upon arriving at the Walt Disney Studios there was a large building on my right hand side that caught my attention. The building (known as the Team Disney building) was massive and featured enormous statues of the Seven Dwarves ‘holding up’ the roof of the structure. Since that building was located near the entrance of The Walt Disney Studios it provided an amazing first impression of the expansive Studio Lot that I was invited into!

After passing the Team Disney Building courtyard we were ushered towards the back of the lot where the Main Disney Theatre was located. The theatre was just as impressive as the Team Disney Building near the front gate. Although the front of the Theatre building was much more simple in design it still was incredible to realize that the Disney Studios had a real movie theatre on the premises. Once we stepped inside the entrance you are in the presence of a full size theatre set-up complete with a concession stand area and stadium style seating in the viewing room.

As if this visit wasn’t already thrilling enough the movie introduction was given by the woman who voices Tinkerbell, Mae Whitman, she was there in person to welcome us all to the viewing of her latest movie! One of my favorite childhood characters was Tinkerbell so I had a child-like awe being in the presence of Mae, the voice behind that sassy little fairy Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast also features the voice talent of Ginnifer Goodwin (from Once Upon a Time) as Fawn the mischeviously curious but loveable Fairy.

The movie itself exceeded all of my expectations. Generally when a movie goes straight to DVD it has a stigma attached to it that it wasn’t good enough to be released in theatres. This was NOT the case with Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast! This adorable, suspenseful, and silly movie would have been a hit if it reached the big screen. Luckily children will still have the opportunity to enjoy this great movie at home over and over again since it was released on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 3rd.

I won’t spoil the plot for you in case you haven’t seen it yet except to say that your children will be asking for a pet Neverbeast after they watch the movie – my son is still talking about that fuzzy little guy weeks later :) I highly recommend purchasing this movie, its sure to be a family favorite!

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Carter’s Clothing + Exclusive 25% Off Coupon!

Carters Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary Carter’s gift card in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Carter’s. I received a gift card to purchase Carter’s clothing to facilitate my review. Thank you to Mom Central for facilitating this opportunity.

Now that Spring is upon us its time to put away those bulky winter coats ..well I live in Southern California so if you’re in a warmer winter climate like me you’ve begun to pack up the cardigans and windbreakers 😉 A new season always brings about a reason to do some shopping for adorable new outfits for your little ones and Carter’s is one of my favorite places to shop. Whether its an Easter dress, Polo and Slacks, Baby’s 1st Easter, or just a simple tee shirt you’re looking for Carter’s has it all!

Carter’s is running a #SpringIntoCarters campaign to promote their new Spring line that hit stores recently. I was generously offered a gift card to shop at their stores to pick up a few clothing items for my children. Last weekend I took my son with me to the mall to browse our local Carter’s store. Upon walking into the store I noticed all the adorable pastel colored clothing and was immediately excited to shop for something other than pants and long-sleeved shirts – Spring is truly upon us!

In May we are going to take a family cruise so I was very excited to see that in addition to the Spring and Easter themed clothing there was also an adorable anchor print style of clothing available for boys & girls! I picked up a polo with an anchor on it for my son to wear to dinner on the cruise and I bought my baby girl a pair of PJs that had anchors and sailor stripes. My little guy had fun following me around the store with a Carter’s brand lion finger puppet on – that he later talked me into purchasing for him.

If you’re a child of the 90’s like me you’ll shout Yee-Haw! when you hear that the beloved series, Hey Dude, is now available on DVD!

In case you don’t remember the details of this show here’s a brief synopsis:

Set at the fictional Bar None Ranch, a group of teenagers run a Camp program owned by Mr. Ernest. Of course as was typical for 90’s sitcoms lots of hijinks ensue throughout the series. A well-known celebrity even got her start on this show, Christine Taylor played Melody a lifeguard for the Bar None Ranch and this box set DVD includes a newly filmed interview with her.

The complete series features all 65 episodes that aired on Nickelodeon during its short stint from 1989-1991. It has a runtime of 25+ hours filled with episodes and bonus features. This cult sitcom favorite is available exclusively at Walmart, so head on over there to snag a copy for yourself!

Darlin’ Deals Review & Giveaway ~ Windy Pouch Animal Jackets!

Disclaimer: I received complimentary Windy Pouch jackets in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you have kids I’m sure you can relate to the feeling of needing to pack up the entire house before going on an outing. Even if its a simple trip to the grocery store. Babies need diapers, pacifiers, change of clothes.. Toddlers need toys, snacks, books.. and Big Kids, although they require a lot less for outings, still require a jacket to be brought along in case of cool weather or in my son’s case – getting cold in the frozen food section at the grocery store every time I take him shopping 😉

My biggest frustration with all the necessities that kids require is that they take up so much space in the car. I literally have had the entire floor of the backseat covered in coats since I forget to take them out. I bring a new one each time we go out because I can’t remember if there is one – or in my case 700 – jackets in the car. With the thought of the jacket covered floor of my car in mind I happened upon a company called Windy Pouch at this year’s Baby & Kidz Expo. Windy Pouch has created a unique and compact solution to needing to tote along a jacket for the kiddos every time you leave the house. They came up with a foldable wind resistant jacket that folds into itself and stores in a connected animal designed pouch!

Here’s a brief synopsis of this company: WINDY POUCH was founded under the fundamental principals of simplicity and functionality. We have created and designed the first pocket windbreaker in the marketplace. We currently have a patent pending on the design and function as well as a Trademark for the label/brand WINDY POUCH. The jacket is available in six styles and one size fits all (toddlers up to 5 yrs).

They currently offer 6 animal designs that include a wind resistant jacket inside in a coordinating color:

  • Cow with a white jacket
  • Pig with a pink jacket
  • Owl with a brown/rust jacket
  • Penguin with a slate jacket
  • Chicken with a yellow jacket
  • Elephant with a blue jacket

Windy Pouch generously offered to send me all 6 designs to review and I must say they are even cuter in person! Each animal jacket has wonderful detail in the design and has a high quality feel and look to it. They have a clip at the top so you can hang them on your purse, diaper bag, or even attach them to a child’s backpack.

My 5 year old son was so excited to try each one out starting with the chicken. The jacket easily came out of the pouch and surprisingly it wasn’t as wrinkly as I would have thought since its packed into a tiny animal pouch! Upon putting the jacket on my son said it was comfy and it buttoned up perfectly on him, so the suggested age range is accurate and would definitely fit younger kids as well since it was slightly short on him. My favorite part about the jacket was that the animal design still shows in the lower end of the jacket when its worn. To store the Windy Pouch jacket again it conveniently folds into itself and has a drawstring to keep the jacket cinched inside the animal pouch.

Personally I think a variety of sizes would be a nice option with these wind resistant jackets so they can fit each child based on their age/size – how cute would little babies look in these coats. Windy Pouch is in the beginning stages of launching their product line so that may be something they will consider in future roll-out of products once they can better gauge the needs of their customer base.

Overall I was very impressed with this innovative childrens’ windbreaker. I would highly suggest it to anybody looking for a compact lightweight jacket for their young child.

To place an order for any of these adorable Windy Pouch animal wind resistant jackets you can email: gsolutions.mj@gmail.com or call directly to place your order: 310-413-9422 and 661-802-8568.
