Are you A Christmas Story Movie Fan?

a-christmas-story

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!!!

I have also found lots of fun Zhu Zhu Pet Sleeping Bags with Pillows so they can rest comfortably at night so they are ready to go in the morning. Some are even sold with the matching dress – now that is smart.

I think this is a goldmine for those who came up with the idea of making an outfit for the Zhu Zhu Pets considering they are the Hottest Toy on the market this holiday season. I also think they make great stocking stuffers for the kids who love these Toy Hamsters.  So have fun with your Zhu Zhu Pet Fashion Shows!!!

The latest iCarly Dolls and Toys

iCarly Toys

I have just finished a new Squidoo Page titled – iCarly Dolls, Toys and More and I am still taken back by HUGE amount of merchandise available surrounding this TV show on Nickelodeon.  Now my kids are big fans of the show and so am I – yes I must admit that I really laugh every time I watch it. Kids just love the shows cast Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly), Jennette McCurdy (Sam), Nathan Kress (Freddy) and Jerry Trainor (Spencer) – they are what makes the show so great – oh and of course some very good writers.   I was inspired to make this page when I saw the new iCarly Fashion Switch Dolls and it snowballed from there.  If you are or have an iCarly Fan living in your home – you do not want to miss this. I think I have covered what I think are the HOTTEST sellers.

Been Busy on Hubpages

So I have also been busy building up my Hubpages as well and I have added four more Hubpages in the past couple weeks.  So now I am at a total of 21 and hope to double by the end of the year. My goal is to be at 40. I like to write about a variety of things there – not just one niche at this time. I am just having fun writing about the things that interest me and making some money along the way never hurts. So here is what I have been up to:

elmo hands

Elmo Says Wash your Hands – I decided to write about the new Ad campaign going on with Elmo from Sesame Street. For one I am a Elmo fan – that is right I admit it. I am a grown up who likes Elmo – Is that wrong? Nah. The second reason is because I really like what he is doing and his new job of helping spread the importance of proper hand washing and how to correctly sneeze and cough without spreading germs to others. I think the more attention to this the better for us all – even if it has to come from Elmo. With the Swine Flu and Flu season looming over us all I think any extra attention to proper hygiene the better. See all the Ads and read more at my Hub.

hannah-montana-bedroom

Hannah Montana Room Decor – My daughter is a big Miley Cyrus Fan and a fan of her show Hannah Montana so I decided to write about all of the great Room Decor available. I am not surprised that Disney has covered every area in that market and you can see it all on my Hub. The thing I like about all the bedding is that it is sophisticated and the colors are really nice. I have also added some great videos showing girls reactions to their newly decorated Hannah Montana Bedrooms – it is priceless.

Toy Hamsters –  Zhu Zhu Pets are one of the most sought after toys this 209 Holiday Season and I wanted to share that there are other fun Toy Hamsters on the market in addition to them.  So you will see all the fun Toy Hamsters I have found and I believe I have found a very nice selection in addition to the Zhu “>Zhu Zhu Pets. So take a look and if you have a hard time getting the Zhu Zhu Pets know you have other options to make your child smile this Christmas.

Cloudy-with-a-chance-of-Meatballs-1

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – Being a fan of the original story written by Judi Barret – I decided to write about the upcoming movie.  I think this new 3D Animation will be a big hit with kids and adults of all ages. The book was great and I think the movie will also live up to that. I have also added some of the Toys and Games that come along with the movie like all of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Video Games.  So stop by and see what it will be like if Meatballs fell from the sky. I think it would be quite tasty.

JUST ADDEDCloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Birthday Party – I came up with some great ideas based on the movie on my Party Blog. It is all about Meatballs and Food and great game ideas. Have you ever seen a Meatball Pinata? Come and see.

The Newest from Littlest Pet Shop – LPSO’s

lpso monkey

Hasbro has done it again and they just came out with a brand new line on Littlest Pet Shop Toys called LPSO’s which stands for Littlest Pet Shop Online.  They are a Littlest Pet Shop Plush Pet that comes with a secret code that gets entered online to bring your new pet into a virtual world full of fun and games for the kids.  There is lots to do from caring for your pet, shopping, playing mini games, chatting safety with friends and so much more.  Most parents like myself asked the question – Are these the same thing as The Littlest Pet Shop VIP’s? The answer is NO. Although they are very similar they are two completely different games. To play LPSO you need to purchase The Littlest Pet Shop Online Pet and the same goes for the Vip’s you must buy The littlest Pet Shop VIP Pet. It is just like buying a new video game – they both have lots of great features and games for the kids to play, but they are not the same.

So parents when your child asks for one of these on their Christmas List this year be sure that you are buying the correct one. It will say what they are on the LOGO on the package and look like this:

Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters

zhuzhuzpets

So my daughter sees a commercial for these Zhu Zhu Pets which are battery operated Hamsters that are suppose to be life like.  Of course she is already begging to have them, but I told her she would have to wait until Christmas. So I looked them up to see exactly what they were and what they did. So I did what I do best and I wrote about them to help other parents learn all about them. You can see my page here: Zhu Zhu Pets. They are very similar to the FurReal Friends Pet line in the way that they come alive with movement, sounds and by touch.

The thing that I really like about these Hamsters is that my daughter has wanted a real one for some time now and it is just not possible in a house of 6 cats. My cats would end up hurting a live hamster and how devastating would that be to her?  This may just fit the bill for now. I also like how they will move freely and play in their habitat of toys you can purchase to go along with them.  But the best part really is no cage cleaning or funky Hamster smells to deal with.

There are a lot of playsets to go with them like Tunnels, Slides, Hamster Balls and more. So you can build a great place for them to play and add on pieces  just like you could with a real Hamster Habitat. These are just being released now under the name Zhu Zhu Pets where as I believe they were once called Go Go Pets. I think with the advertising and the hype being out out there they will no doubt be a Hot Toy for 2009 Holiday Shopping.
