Two exciting premieres on Disney Junior! Henry Hugglemonster + Quest for the Crystal Mickey

There will be two special series from Disney Junior that premieres this month, which are sure to please our little ones. 

The new series Henry Hugglemonster is produced by the same Oscar®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films as Doc McStuffins. This show is about Henry, a high-energy monster-kid that lives in Roarsville.  The series is based on the children's book "I'm a Happy Hugglewug".  Henry like any other typical five-year-old child loves his family, enjoys playing outside with his friends, and says exactly what he thinks the moment it pops into his head.

With March Break right around the corner, I am sure many parents like me :) are looking for ways to keep their children entertained.  
Although, I plan indoor and outdoor activities sometimes my children just want to watch TV from the the comfort of our family room.  I like allowing them to watch TV by themselves through Netflix, as I can control what they watch by selecting an age appropriate show for them for a controlled period of time.

Terra Nova and Princess Bride

The Complete Series of Terra Nova is on DVD.  We really enjoyed watching Terra Nova when it was running on Fox, however when the show ended with the 1st season we were disappointed.  We are glad it is on DVD so we can watch it many times.  The episodes of this show is fun and interesting that it can be watched a few times without getting bored.  If you have missed this show when it was on TV, then get this 4 disk DVD, which is sure to be enjoyed.  
It is based in the year 2149 when humanity is in the final throes of extinction. Those fortunate enough to escape are allowed to travel back in time 85 million years to an outpost known as Terra Nova. For the Shannon family, it’s a chance to reunite and start over. But once there, they face giant, carnivorous dinosaurs, and mysterious forces conspire to destroy the entire experiment and everyone involved in it.
The Princess Bride is released on Blu-ray for its 25th Anniversary.  This 1987 fairy tale with heroes and villains is fun to watch.  It captures the audience with its dialogue and story line.  
The Blu-ray will have special features such as "True Love: The Princess Bride Phenomenon" that includes interviews with director, executive producer and many others.
