Now I had a Baby Alive doll when I was young and I liked it until my brother dissected it to see how it worked, but I do not remember it Pooping. My son saw the commercial on TV and told me I should Blog about it. So here I am blogging about a doll that poops – go figure. I do not know about anyone else, but this disturbs me a bit. The commercial makes it sound so exciting too. The description is no better:
Baby Alive Whoopsie Doo Doll is an adorable, life-like doll that coos, giggles, eats, pees and even poops on her own, giving your child a fun-filled, true-to-life experience of what’s it’s like to be a mommy. Do you think we need to let our kids experience this at such a young age? Ok maybe it might be a way to get the kids to refrain from having babies so young – I just do not know what to think.
But wait if she goes Poop she will say “Whoopsie” – good thing she gives a warning most babies do not. I am curious to know what others think of this. I remember when that new Barbie came out a few years back with her dog that pooped and she has a scooper to clean it up with – what is going on? Are all the kids toys going to S*%T? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Watch the video below for a good laugh. So leave me comments and tell me what your thoughts of this doll are.
My sister knew how bad I wanted to see this movie so she pre-purchased tickets for us as an early Birthday present for me a couple weeks ago. I could not wait to see it and today I did – it was well worth the wait. I would have gone with my husband too, but I knew he would make fun of me when I cried so he stayed home. Before the movie I packed my pockets with tissues so I was prepared. I must say I did need those tissues, but not until the end of the movie when it was over.
I cried for the loss of such an amazing talent and also for all the people who worked so hard practicing for this upcoming comeback tour. To think all those months of practicing and putting it together came to such a horrible end. Dreams that came true for them as they were picked to be part of this tour and then ended before it even began – my heart went out to them BIG Time. That must have been so hard on them to not only lose their dream of being on stage in front of an audience, but to have lost the man who was making it happen – their idol – Michael Jackson.
The movie was well made and really showed us just how involved Michael Jackson was in every aspect of his comeback tour. It also gave us a taste of what could have been – and it would have been one of the best concerts to ever be. Things were being done that had never been done before and it is very sad that we will not get to see it all live the way it should have been seen. Michael was full of energy, excited and really looked the best he had in a very long time. He looked happy doing what he loved to do – it was nice to see. There was laughter, jokes and funny moments that really showed the side we rarely ever got to experience.
I really think that this movie is not it – we saw many glimpses into the songs and dances that would have been performed, but never the entire picture. I am hoping that they have footage of a complete run through dress rehearsal that will follow this movie for us to see it all. I have a good feeling they do – I am hopeful.
If you have the opportunity to see this movie then do it. It is great even for those who may not be huge fans, because once you see this there is no doubt you will turned into one. Again my heart not only goes out to Michael Jackson’s Family for their loss, but also to the loss felt by all the talent involved in this tour from the dancers, back up singers, production team and everyone involved. I am happy I was able to see this movie and I myself will also always wonder like everyone else what could have been. I do know Michael Jackson will live on and “This is it” is not it and will wait for what is to come next.

With the holidays approaching us and all those new Stuffed Animals that will be given to your kids – you may want to think about where you are going to put them all. Every year before Christmas I go through my kids toys and weed out what they do not play with any more. I usually donate them by bringing them to a local store which accepts them or I have been also going on Craigslist or Freecycle and asking if there may be a needy family that could use some toys. I know this year there we be a lot of them. It is a good way to also get the kids to part with some of their things. Knowing they are donating to a good cause and giving a toy to a child that may not otherwise have any is a good lesson for them.
My Daughter's Stuffed Animals Before
Even with all the donations my daughter loves her Stuffed Animals and Plush and does have quite a bit of them she still cannot part with. This past year I discovered one of the best ways to organize them and it is with a product called The Zoo. The picture above shows her stuffed animals now organized and easily accessible for her to play with. I keep writing about this to get the word out to other parents for this has made such a huge difference in keeping them all neat and tidy. It also makes it easier for my daughter to find and play with them now vs. being all in a big bucket.
I have written all about it here: Stuffed Animal Toy Organizers and you can also see other ideas for storing and displaying all those Webkinz and smaller plush your kids may have too. They are all my own pictures shown and what I am using myself. Trust me I am the parent where everything has a home and when it does I am very happy. You will also be happy when you see you have great options. I know you will thank me.
Now you can play with both Michelle and Barack Obama with the new release of the Michele Obama Action Figures. I have to say my Squidoo Lens – Barack Obama Toys and Collectibles is one of my favorites and it full of some of the best Presidential Toys on the market.
Michelle Obama Action Figures are the perfect addition to the Barack Obama Action Figures – now you can play with them both. Think of the fun you can have now. Not only with just them, but the many great toys that are on the market. I have also added a bunch more new items like a Barack Obama Action Figure Craft where you can color your action figure – so now he can be whatever color you want him to be.
How about a Barack Obama Rubber Ducky – think how much fun your next bath time could be with this Duck. You can sing “Rubber Baracky you the one – you make bath time lots of fun…..” What a great gift idea for the holidays – Strange – Yes – Fun – Definitely!!!
You will also find a Barack Obama Pinata – I could just imagine the possibilities for that. Talk about some added fun to your party.
I can go on and on but if you want to see all the fun – Stop by and see what else I have found and the many ways you can Play with the President. Visit – Barack Obama Toys and Collectibles. One thing I know is that if anything you will have a good laugh!!!
Are you ready for Halloween? Do you have your costume picked and ready to go? My kids are almost ready – My daughter wants to be a Wizard Witch – that is a cross between a Wizard and a Witch obviously. She is wearing a very sparkly Witch costume we bought on clearance last year and will carry a wand. It is what she wants – so I am all for it. My son wants to be a stick figure – is that funny? It is so easy to make. I got him a Black Shirt and Black Sweat pants – cost me $11. Now I have to find the Glow in the Dark Masking Tape and then just tape it on the shirt and pants and he is done. Seems too easy for me this year – but I am so not complaining.
I still have yet to carve or paint my pumpkins. The picture you see above is my Painted Dog Pumpkin I made last year – isn’t he cute? I wrote a Hubpage all about Pumpkin Carving Alternatives you can take a look at to see some of the other ones we made last year. I have not decided which approach I will take this year. I did grow my own Pumpkins for the first time this year and got a few good ones in some fun shapes.
I am guilty this year of not taking out my Halloween Decorations – I have been so busy I just have not found the time. I do have some festive fall decor outside my home, but usually the inside is filled with decorations. The kids have not said anything so I do not see the urgency of going in the attic at this point to get them out. I did make a great Squidoo page all about Halloween Window Decorations and was hoping to get some myself, but sometimes life can be too busy – so I guess next year. In my area the kids do not trick or treat at my house because it is too rural so no one will be coming to see them anyway.
I do have to share my favorite Halloween Costume I have seen this year – I am not sure why I like this one, but it really made me laugh. Have you seen the Toilet Costume? I think this is great and so wrong all at the same time – so for me it is the perfect costume if you have it in you to wear it. Was that a Pun? I have to say if you want attention at your Halloween Party then this is one that will no doubt bring it on.
Halloween is that time of year that tells us once we get through that – Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner and to me that is the scariest thing about it. Those holidays I am totally not ready for at all!!!

The Dora Links Doll is the new grown up Dora that is an online interactive doll. When you buy Dora Links and hook her up to your computer it opens an online world where the kids get to play games, create rooms, dress up Dora, Explore and solve mysteries and so much more. In addition to that the doll itself also changes as your child plays – her eye color can change – her hair can grow and jewelry changes colors and more.
The other part I really like is that the girls can play with Dora offline as well. This is a really cool thing – when your child is playing with the doll off line it will alert them when a new mystery has been added to the website with a Magical Alert System. You can also buy Fashion Packs, Accessory Packs and Rooms which of course comes with a code that unlocks the items online as well. Kind of reminds me of Webkinz in the way it works. You can also buy Dora’s Explorer Girls Collection – Her Friends – Alana, Kate, Emma and Nayia.
I really think Mattel created a great product that will appeal to a lot of age groups and is also educational too. I know my daughter learned some Spanish from watching the show and they can also do the same playing the game. If your daughter is a Dora Fan then I think this is a great choice for a gift. I like it so I give it 2 thumbs up!!!

Have you seen the new Twilight Scene It Game yet? Well it happens to be one of the Hottest Games for Christmas 2009. I have never really played any of the Scene It Games myself, but they are so popular and Twilight Scene It has many people buying. The Twilight Movies and The New Moon Movie have been so liked by many and this game will test fans knowledge of the movies, books and more through interactive trivia. It is a great game for the kids to play when hanging out or for the entire family.
Here is the Game Description:
The dazzling Twilight DVD trivia game with heart-stopping movie clips! Scene It? Twilight Edition features hundreds of clips, trivia questions and on-screen puzzlers from the Twilight movie phenomenon! Race your friends around the board to be the first to enter the Twilightning Round and find out who knows the most about this riveting saga. Scene It? is more than Twilight trivia. Experience customized mini-games and bonus activities that will challenge your observation, memory and puzzle solving skills and that are unique to Scene It? Twilight Edition. This game will quench your thirst for more Bella, Edward, Jacob and the gang while you relive your favorite Twilight moments again and again!
You can get the Scene It games in so many of your favorite shows and movies and I think they would make for some fun gaming nights. I do not consider myself an expert in too many of them, but I would sure like to try and may be getting one of the many titles for under my tree this year. Sad to say, but I think either the Disney Scene it or Nickelodeon Scene It games may be more my speed since that is all that is ever on the TV in my house with the kids. All I know right now is the Twilight Game is selling like HOT cakes – so if you or anyone you know is a fan – this is the perfect gift for the holiday. To all the Scene It Games available – take a look : Scene It Game Titles.

I am a huge fan of the movie A Christmas Story and I can watch it over and over every year. My older sister just recently told me she has never seen the movie and I almost feel off my seat. I thought this movie is one everybody has seen at least once, but I guess I was wrong. So my mission is to get her to see it this year – she has seen bits and pieces, but that is not good enough.
The reason it came up in conversation was because I happened to stumble across some Christmas Story Party Supplies and decided I would put together an entire party based on the movie. So I did a lot of thinking and created some great party games that can be played based off some of the best scenes from the movie and also some great finds to go perfectly with the theme. You can see the entire post here: A Christmas Story Party. The ideas are great for Birthday Parties and even for your Family Holiday Parties to give them some extra added fun.
Everything is there from How to make a Leg Lamp Cake to making your very own Secret Decoder like the one Ralphie got in the mail to decode the message “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine”. I am so excited over this party theme – I am very happy with how it came out and the game ideas are great so if you want a party for the holiday that will have the guests talking you must stop by and check it out.
I also did a Hubpage on Ralphie’s Pink Nightmare – if you saw the movie you will know this is the gift he received from Aunt Clara. It was one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Did you know you can buy the Pink Bunny Pajamas? It is true you can own your very own Pink Nightmare and I wrote all about it. Could you imagine wearing it your self or giving it to someone as a gift – how funny would that be. So stop by and check it out – I Triple Dog Dare ya!!!
