The newest installment of the animated series, Alpha and Omega: The Big Fureeze has arrived just in time for the holidays on DVD (plus Digital), Digital HD, and On Demand from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Join everyone’s favorite alpha and omega wolves for a heartwarming holiday adventure! When Kate and Humphrey get lost in the woods and fail to appear for the holidays, their wolf pups—Stinky, Claudette, and Runt—take matters into their own paws and venture out into a blizzard to rescue them. Joined by Brent the sleepy bear cub and Agnes the feisty porcupine, the pups prove that neither blinding snow, nor rival wolves, nor hungry bears, will keep them from spending the holidays together as a family.

Care Bears & Cousins: Take Heart Available On DVD

I love when the shows I grew up on make a comeback. I remember watching the Care Bears when I was a little girl. My favorite was Grumpy Bear. He always made sure to remind others that even if your day is not going well, you are still loved. The Care Bears is all about caring and treating others with kindness. There was a lesson to learn in each episode.

After many years away from Care-a-Lot, Care Bears Cousins finally return home in Care Bears™ & Cousins: Take Heart – Volume 1, arriving on DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD November 1 from Lionsgate. In this series, debuting for the first time on DVD, the Care Bears reunite with their cousins to retrieve the Cousins’ stolen ship.

There’s exciting news in the land of Care-a-Lot! The Care Bear Cousins – Brave Heart Lion, Bright Heart Raccoon, Lotsa Heart Elephant, and Cozy Heart Penguin – have returned home. The Cousins make sure that the Share Cloud is always full of the Care Hearts that Care-a-Lot needs.

I watched some of the disc with my Granddaughter, Leilani. There are 6 different episodes to choose from. It made me feel nostalgic and I can’t wait to bond with Leilani and watch more episodes. I hope she grows to love the Care Bears as much as I do!

Holiday Gift Guide: The Wild Thornberrys The Complete Series

2015 Holiday GIft GuideSample provide for review purposes. Opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

Late last month, The Wild Thornberrys: The Complete Series was released on DVD from Shout! Factory exclusively at Walmart.

The Wild Thornberys: The Complete Series review

The hit series follow the Thornberry family as they travel the world in their Communications Vehicle or CommVee looking for rare animals to film. After an encounter with a mysterious shaman, their youngest child Eliza was given the power to speak to animals. 

I remember watching The Wild Thornberrys with my kids as they were growing up. They used to love watch Eliza and her family go on a new adventure each episode. This was a fun way to learn about exotic animals and where they lived. We are having fun watching the episodes all over again. Out of the entire series my favorite episodes were the ones that were centered around the orgin of Donnie. He was one of my favorite characters next to Darwin.

I prefer buying my favorite television series when they are in a box set. I like the way they look, they are usually very budget friendly and so much easier to keep up with. This set contains all 91 episodes of The Wild Thornberrys on 15 discs.  I didn’t know it was that many episodes. That’s over 30 hours!

Buy The Wild Thornberrys: The Complete Series DVD for $23.00 as a Walmart exclusive.

Holiday Gift Guide: Monsters University Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo

hggpost banner


Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. “Monsters University” bravely explores themes of self-discovery and the revelations that come with growing up.

On October 29, 2013 Disney Pixar released Monsters University on the 4-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, 3-Disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack, 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand.

It has been 12 years since Monster’s Inc came out in theaters. My family fell in love with the adorable monsters who loved to scare little kids. Especially Sully and Mike. I did not know it back then but did you know that the process to produce the movie took five years? It was definitely worth it because we watched it over and over again.

My entire family was excited when Monsters University arrived in the mail. Only Kayla and Jazz went to see it when it was in the theaters. It was a great idea to make a movie explaining how Sully and Mike met and became a part of Monsters Inc.

Every since Mike was an itty bitty monster he knew he wanted to become a “scarer”. He visited Monster’s Inc on a school field trip and got the chance to see an “scarer” in action and that became his goal.  From the moment he set foot on the university grounds to study at the School of Scaring, he studied hard and was all work and no play.


The first day in class, Mike meets Sully who is a natural when it comes to be a scarer. His dad is know for being scary and Sully expects to follow in his footsteps. It turns out to be harder than he thinks.

This movie had us laughing all throughout and it had a great message as well. You can’t do it on your own and teamwork is important. The picture quality of the movie was so bright and beautiful, it was easy to become totally engrossed in it. The whole concept of college was done wonderfully. There were fraternities, sororities, dorm rooms and more. A lot of attention was paid to the details.


The is a group of monsters that we lovingly call the misfits because they all were kicked out of The School of Scaring. I love the great attitudes they had throughout the movie while still being themselves.



After the movie finished, we spent a lot of time watching the bonus features. Kayla was surprised at how much work went into making an animated feature. The Pixar staff is dedicated and works really hard to get the movie just right. Our favorite part was watching the different departments for Pixar participate in their own version of the Scare Games. The Scare Games is a competition with different events to put a monsters scaring skills to the test. After each event, the last team is eliminated.
