{#RatedGGG} It's Oogust 29th and Time for the Oogieloves Movie Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/13 at 12:01 AM EST)

[tweetherder]Read our review and enter to win @TheOogieloves Prize Pack-get #RatedGGG today! #giveaway[/tweetherder]

About The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure Movie:

Kenn Viselman, the creator of The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure (coming out today, “Oogust” 29th) believes in the The Power of Mom. So much so he and his team have been traveling around the country engaging bloggers in conversations about what constitutes quality G-rated entertainment. Other than a few wildlife documentaries and a re-release in a popular children’s movie in 3-D, Hollywood has completely ignored the youngest moviegoer. The best they give us for our kids – animated PG films – are loaded with aggression and bloodshed.

Moms (and Dads): You have the power to change what Hollywood pushes on your children. In fact, there is no voice more powerful than yours. You control the home, the family budget and your child’s welfare. Aren’t you tired of watching moms die in the first ten minutes of so many animated movies? Aren’t you tired of seeing your children confused by the aggression towards their beloved movie characters? There’s no place for such violence in a children’s movie. Enough is enough.

It’s this “enough is enough” attitude that got Kenn Viselman, the marketing genius who introduced us to Teletubbies, Thomas the Tank Engine, Noddy and Eloise, mad as h*ll. The end result: The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure, a film that reinvents the movie-going experience. This film – basically a movie and a live show rolled into one – is the first-of-its-kind interactive family musical that encourages the audience to get out of their seats, dance, and sing. Visual and auditory cues invite the audience to “move” the action along, allowing parents and kids to interact not only with the characters, but also with one another.

The story follows the Oogieloves – Goobie, Zoozie and Toofie – as they prepare for a surprise birthday party for their friend, Schluufy. When their guardian, J. Edgar, loses the last five magical balloons in all of Lovelyloveville, the Oogieloves take action. Along the way, they meet Rosalie Rosebud (Toni Braxton), Dottie Rounder (Cloris Leachman), Lola and Lero Sombrero (Jaime Pressly and Christopher Lloyd), Milky Marvin (Chazz Palminteri), and Bobby Wobbly (Cary Elwes). The movie opens in theaters today, “Oogust” 29th.

Our review:

We had the opportunity to meet and talk to Kenn Viselman at a screening of The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure and it was great hearing from him about how they wanted to create a movie that families could enjoy together. The best part of the conversation was when we discussed there are not many movies these days, including the ones geared towards kids, that do not contain a “bad or evil” guy, questionable language (including kids talking back to adults), and violence or scary movie effects.

Because we have kids of varying ages, our youngest child is definitely exposed to more media that is designed for older children. Being able to take her to this movie, where it has a positive vibe throughout the whole movie, and allows her to get up to dance, is why we like it. It may not be as interesting for older children, but our older kids ended up getting into it by the end of the movie.

Unlike other movies, you can also find a parent guide on the Oogieloves website that tells you more about the movie, how to prepare your child and yourself before watching the movie, things to do while you watch the movie, and how to extend the fun and learning after you’ve watched the movie.

One character that we found entertaining in the The Oogieloves in the BIG Balloon Adventure movie was Rosalie Rosebud, played by Toni Braxton. Find out why she liked being in the movie and why it’s great for kids:

Tickets are on sale now on Fandango and at your local movie theaters.

{#DWDragonsLive} How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular Review

[tweetherder]Save 25% on @DWDragons Live #HowToTrainYourDragonLiveSpectacular tickets today![/tweetherder]

About How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular:

This summer, Chicago audiences will experience the magic of Viking warriors and fire-breathing dragons that soar through arena skies in DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR. The smash hit show from Australia and New Zealand will delight audiences at the United Center, 1901 W. Madison Street, for five days only, July 26-29, 2012. To bring the beloved 3D-animated movie How to Train Your Dragon to life, DreamWorks Animation – the studio behind other modern classics including Madagascar, Shrek and Kung Fu Panda – enlisted Global Creatures, the masterminds behind the international phenomenon Walking with Dinosaurs. The result is a breathtaking live action experience in which 23 dragons (some with wingspans of up to 46 feet), Viking warriors and world-class circus artists and acrobats, perform against a state-of-the-art, wall-to-floor immersive projection measuring more than 20,000 square feet.

The high-tech, high-energy spectacular breaks every rule of theatrical entertainment to fully immerse audiences into the show in ways that have not been attempted before. Barely contained within the arena, DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR utilizes the full venue, maximizing every dimension of the performance space to transport audiences into a mythical world of fire-breathing dragons that float underwater and soar and bank overhead at great speeds. The state-of-the-art animatronic technology and large-scale cinematic projections interact seamlessly with the live actors, who bring DreamWorks Animation’s heartwarming story to life through theatrical storytelling, martial arts and acrobatics.

“The creativity, technology and sheer size of this show is unprecedented and we are thrilled to serve as hosts here at the United Center,” said Vince Amatuzzi, Director of Marketing, United Center. “Children and adults alike will marvel at the magnitude of the experience and won’t soon forget it.”

Our review:

Our family and I did not know exactly what to expect when we sat down to watch the Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular. Once it started, the special effects were completely mesmerizing. With much of the scenery being projected against a wall, the actors in the scenes were really able to bring them to life and had us believing that they were running on a mountain or swimming in an ocean. You get lost in it and forget that it’s not 3-dimensional. Once the dragons came out onto the stage, again, it was amazing to see just how realistic they looked and acted. You could tell that the children in the audience were also getting wrapped up in it because the child behind me started crying during one of the scenes because she was afraid one of the dragons would get hurt. A slight warning: my daughter did squeeze my hand tightly during a couple of the scenes because she found it so realistic and had to cover her eyes for a couple of others because she told me she did not want to get nightmares from it. Overall, though, our kids enjoyed it, and so did we. It’s definitely a new way to incorporate a movie into a real-life setting.

Show dates and times:

DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR will appear at the United Center on Thursday, July 26 at 7:00 PM; Thursday, July 26 at 7:00 PM; Friday, July 27 at 7:00 PM; Saturday, July 28 at 11:00 AM, 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM; and Sunday, July 29 at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM with free parking at official United Center parking lots for all performances.

Our review:

We’ve experienced some really hot weather in Chicago the past few weeks, and we’re bound for some more temperatures that reach the 90’s or beyond in the next few months, so we’ve been able to test out how well the new Dry Idea AdvancedDry works in these conditions. Maria definitely gets affected with extremely hot weather, so she is constantly looking for a women’s deodorant anti-perspirant that will keep her smelling fresh all day. Up until now, she has had trouble finding one that lives up to the expectations. She has found that the Dry Idea AdvancedDry is one that she can put on in the morning and not have to worry about for the rest of the day. No matter how hot and humid it gets outside, she feels comfortable. It’s definitely one that will be part of the daily routine for getting ready.

{#Giveaway} Birthday – PottyCover (Ends 7/8 at 12:01 AM EST)

It’s day 4 of our birthday bash and we’re ready to give you another giveaway! You’re probably out and about and/or going on road trips with the kids this Summer and today’s giveaway is one that will come in handy!

About PottyCover:

PottyCover is a disposable toilet seat cover for children that covers the sides and the front of the toilet, to keep away germs at public rest-rooms. It is made of non-woven fabric coated with a layer of plastic, creating a waterproof barrier between the toilet and the child. This product has the largest coverage of all seat covers on the market and for added convenience, each seat cover is individually packaged in a small, easy to open bag that makes it super easy to always keep one or two in a purse or a back pocket.

Using a public rest-room with a young child could be very stressful, but with PottyCovers the whole family can feel safe knowing that even at the filthiest bathrooms they will be protected from germs. We designed this product for kids, but it has become a must-have travel item for many of our adult customers.

The prize:

One (1) PottyCover 6-Pack

Our review:

We love using PottyCover, especially when we are out and about with our daughters. Often times, the toilet seat covers that are in the stalls in public restrooms are thin and rip easily. If there is an automatic flushing system, we also have the issue of the toilet seat cover being flushed before our daughters can even sit down. By covering a larger area, we have found that the Potty Cover is more sanitary and stays put better. We wish we had these with us during our last long road trip because some of the rest areas we stopped by were not very sanitary.

Where to purchase Potty Covers:

A pack of PottyCover sells for $5.99 and it is available on Amazon, Ebay, all Buy Buy Baby stores around the country and at select Bed Bath & Beyond stores.

We love Trop50 in our household, especially the “No Pulp Calcium + Vitamin D” variety. When we are feeling under the weather, drinking more Trop50 has helped us feel better quicker.

We’ve always liked the taste of Tropicana juices, and Trop50 is no different – it’s delicious.

{Review & Giveaway} SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Lover’s Start-Up Kit – $99.95 Value (Ends 1/28 at 12:01 AM EST) – Blogorama Bonanza Remix 2012

Sign up for our free daily newsletter to keep up-to-date on all the great coupons, deals, and more!

Enter your email address: Delivered by FeedBurner

We are participating in the Blogorama Bonanza Remix 2012, hosted byJyla’s Three Of Us GiveawayJ-Man and MillerBug & Generations of Savings.  We have a very fun review and giveaway for all of you!

About the SodaStream:

With SodaStream, you can make your own carbonated beverages at home using tap water and the SodaStream flavors.

Our review:

We found that the SodaStream was pretty easy to use. At first, we had difficulty figuring out the instructions that came with it, but once we figured it out, it was a breeze. You connect the carbonator to the soda maker, fill your bottle with tap water, fizz it with the carbonator, add the flavor of your choice, and voila, you have your very own carbonated drinks from home!

The Lemon Lime was very tasty and really did taste like Sprite. The Cola flavor was also good, but it depends on how much of the flavor you put in there for your taste.

One thing we really liked about the SodaStream is the variety of flavors, which includes Regular, Diet, Energy Drinks, Sparkling Naturals, Sparkling Tea, and MyWater Essence flavors. It’s very convenient if you are having a party or gathering where people want different beverages.

Since we drink quite a bit of carbonated beverages in our household (the adults, not the kids), this is something that is very useful for us. We hope that this will help us cut the cost of purchasing carbonated beverages over a long period of time.

How to purchase the SodaStream::

Visit SodaStream’s website to view the different products they have available online. Their products can also be found at many local retailers, including Bed, Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Carson’s, Costco, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Meijer, Sears, Staples, Target, and Williams-Sonoma.

The prize:

SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Lover’s Start-Up Kit ($99.95 value)

The winner of this giveaway will receive:
– Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white)
– 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years
– Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda
– Variety 6-pack of popular sample-size flavors
– 3 full-sized flavors of the winner’s choice
