With an exceptional voice cast of Peyton List (Disney Channel series BUNK’D, Jessie, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Norm Macdonald (The Middle, Saturday Night Live), internationally renowned singer and actress Nina Hagen and Joshua Graham, this new CG-animated motion picture is a hilarious mash-up of the best classic fairytales, packed with beloved storybook characters, non-stop laughs and toe-tapping songs! Directed by Harald Siepermann (Tarzan, Enchanted) and Boris Aljinovic, THE SEVENTH DWARF is a magical movie adventure for the whole family.


Join all seven dwarfs for an adventure as big as they are small! It’s the eve of Princess Rose’s 18th birthday. Everyone in the kingdom has come to Fantabularasa Castle to celebrate including Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood. But just before the stroke of midnight Bobo, the youngest dwarf, accidentally pricks the finger of Princess Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) with a cursed needle and sends the kingdom into a century-long slumber! To find Rose’s true love Jack to save her with a kiss, Bobo and the other six dwarfs must go on a treacherous journey, face a fiery dragon and outwit the jealous, scheming and evil witch, Dellamorta!
This hilarious mash-up of the best classic fairy tales for young and old alike, features a winged dragon, a brave little dwarf, non-stop laughs and toe-tapping songs!

Watch the trailer for THE SEVENTH DWARF

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o93kvRxc6Y

Meet the Dwarfs:
Cooky (Voiced by Joe Marth) Responsible for feeding all of the dwarves, Cooky is one fantastic cook. His responsibilities don't end in the kitchen, however Cooky upholds all the rules and makes sure the other dwarves follow them as well.

Cloudy (Voiced by Al Parrish) A grumpy dwarf, Cloudy's raison d'etre is to find the hair in the soup and to see the glass as always being half empty. Joie de vivre is really not this dwarf's thing-making him the exact opposite of his brother Sunny.

Sunny(Voiced by Geoff May) The opposite of his brother Cloudy, Sunny is a happy-go-lucky kind of dwarf. He is an incurable optimist, for whom the glass is always half full. It is in Sunny's nature always to seek out a silver lining no matter how big the disaster. Even when he should really know better, he believes that everyone is nice and is entirely unsuspicious of other people's motives.

Tschakko(Voiced by Matt Gilbert) Always ready for action, Tschakko is the sporty member of the group. He always gives the impression that he knows how its done, even when he doesn't have the foggiest notion,(which is often the case.) His motto is "Movement is Good!" Because as long as you are moving, then you are going the right way! Right?

Speedy(Voiced by Cameron Elvin) Always ready to look at things with a new perspective, Speedy is a real philosopher. Though it can be a rare occasion, when Speedy gets an idea, it can bring him to question every little thing that all the other dwarves simply take for granted. His decelerated state of being allows him to see things from an unusual point of view, helping the dwarves in all sorts of situations.

Ralphy
(Voiced by Peter Karwowski)What Ralphy lacks in intellect, he strongly makes up for with compassion and generosity. While his stature alone makes him a verritable pillar of strength, Ralphy is always in a good mood and eager to help. He is perhaps the best friend anyone could ever imagine.

You’ve already met six of the dwarfs… now get ready to meet Dellamorta, the evil witch, and Burner, the fire-breathing dragon from Shout! Factory’s upcoming animated film, THE SEVENTH DWARF! With some help from her reluctant sidekick, Burner, Dellamorta dedicates all her time to sabotaging the beautiful Princess Rose and her fairytale friends. Will Princess Rose and the entire kingdom be saved from Dellamorta’s villainous schemes before it’s too late? You’ll have to wait until JULY 31ST to find out!

Burner(Voiced by Norm MacDonald) A fierce dragon who needs a friend, Burny doesn't enjoy being Dellamorta's underling very much. He's been teased in the past about his secret passion- tap-dancing; will he be able to trust others and make friends?

Dellamorta(Voiced by Nina Hagen) An evil ice queen with her sights set on freezing the kingdom of Fantabularasa. Dellamorta is jealous, greedy and obsessed with power. She is so terrifying that even the elements cower before her. Dellamorta wasn't always so nasty, however; she became the spiteful person she is today after being spurned by her one true love. Perhaps if she had been spared disappointment back then, she would not be quite so evil today.

One lucky person will win a copy of this DVD. Get your entries in and good luck to everyone.




Raincoast Books Review...

Recently I received two books to do a review on. I really like these books.

Land Shark: The only thing Bobby wants for his birthday is a pet shark. So you can imagine his disappointment when his parents get him… a puppy. Everyone knows shark
lovers can never become dog lovers. Or can they? Full of humor and heart, this book
explores the idea that sometimes, getting exactly what you don't want turns out to be
exactly what you need.



Adventures in Smelly Places: Keep little hands busy on long journeys with these bumper books of stickers that mix amazing facts about some of the world's smelly places with great photos and illustrations, plus a small dose of humour. Each book also includes a collectible fold-out surprise, an extra gift to make and proudly display.

Poohy! Come and explore some of the smelliest places in the world!

Explore the stinky stench of a bat cave in America,
the eye-watering aroma of a smokehouse in Scotland, and the heady perfume of a rose oil factory in Turkey! Decorate real-life locations, like smelly Seal Island in South Africa, the acrid vanilla plantation in Costa Rica-and more smelly places-with over 250 reusable stickers.


Enjoy hours of fun games and puzzles. Plus, each book in the series has its very own push-out surprise to make and collect.

These are two great books that any child will enjoy.Raincoast has a wonderful selection of kids/teens books for you to check out. Take a look here http://www.raincoast.com/features/kids-teen/

This is a review only but be on the look-out for more Raincoast books giveaways coming soon. Thank you to Raincoast Books.

Hulk Costume-Review-NEW COSTUMES


Recently I received the package that my grandson has been waiting for. This year for Halloween he wants to dress as The Hulk. So his wish is my command so to speak. I sent for the costume and when it arrived I had my grandson come over to try it on. It just fits him and maybe I should have ordered a larger size but too late now. He put it on and was so excited. He looks pretty good except for my floor which is in the process of being replaced. But the costume looked good and he is happy. He looks to be pretty well fit doesn't he? Look at those abs. lol The ensemble comes with a green and gray jumpsuit with a muscle chest so that your son can show off all of the strength of this superhero. Also included are shoe covers and a ferocious green mask so that your child will really transform into this beast from head to toe.


I remember watching The Hulk when Bill Bixby played him on television and loved that show. Its nice to see that an 8 year old is taking interest in this now too. The Hulk is like a super hero to him and other little boys too I presume. Its so nice that today we can buy costumes for our kids that they will enjoy wearing at Halloween. For my grandson, he gets to celebrate Halloween twice. First out at his nanny's trailer where all the campers get a gathering to hand out treats to the kids. Then on October 31st, the kids get to celebrate again. They sure do fill up on the goodies at these two holiday.

Take a look at some of the costumes they offer for girls, men and plus size:

If you are looking for a costume for your child this year, there are so many to choose from. They have boys costumes Historic/Patriotic, TV & Movie, Cartoon Characters, Pirate and Fairy Tale. For girls they have Historic/Patriotic, Disney, Tween, TV & Movie, Cartoon Characters, Pirate and Fairy Tale.
They have women, men, toddlers, infants, Teen, sexy and Plus size costumes so there is one for every person's preference.

So I know this is still only July but blink your eyes and it will be the end of October and for those who celebrate Halloween, you can get a head start right now by checking out this site and choosing your costume for this year. I know you will love the choices you have there. Have fun!
Thanks to the sponsor for my costume. My grandson is over the moon.

You can check all of them here http://www.costumesupercentre.ca/new+arrivals.html

Patience Brewster & Leon Day-Review


Here we are at the end of June already and who wants to think about what is less than 6 months away, namely Christmas? Just the thoughts of it makes me shudder, I mean we just got over the holidays didn't we? But at Patience Brewster, they like to celebrate Christmas for all the different seasons.
First a little about who Patience Brewster is. She is a lady who is an artist and designer of handmade and handcrafted unique gifts and ornaments. Believe me when I say they all are beautiful ornaments and gifts.

My very favorite ornament that I just love is the Sugar Plum Fairy
I looked everything over and all the ornaments are so pretty.Take a look for yourself. www.patiencebrewster.com It was a hard decision to choose which I liked best. Patience offers more than ornaments on her site. She has Gift Certificates, Gifts for Her, Gifts for the Home and Gifts for Baby. Also they have Figurines and Stationery for all holidays and every day.

At Patience Brewster, they live for Christmas and, though they do love basking in the warm weather and sunshine that the Spring and Summer bring, they strive to carry out the Christmas spirit throughout all the seasons. This is why they were thrilled to learn about Leon Day!

As you may or may not already know, Leon Day (“Noel” spelled backwards) is celebrated on June 25th and marks the halfway point to Christmas. For many, Leon Day is a time to begin thinking about creating gifts and decorations for the Christmas holiday.

So how do you spend Leon Day? Do you gather the family around the table and start making crafts for someone special at Christmas or do you sit and watch Christmas movies all day or read stories about Christmas? Or if you are into knitting or crocheting like I spend a lot of my time doing, will you start making something in that line for your family or friends on your Christmas list?

I like to begin these things in January and work at them year round so you may be sure on Leon Day I will be working at one of my crochet or knitting projects getting it ready for the holiday. I have some things already done but have much more to do yet. Have you begun anything at all yet for Christmas? Have you started your shopping yet? Or do you wait until the last minute like I used to do.

If you are looking for something this year that is unique and will be much appreciated by someone, take a look at all the items on the website and I am sure you will find something you would love to have for yourself or give as a gift. Believe me when I say they are all beautiful ornaments and gifts.

So isn't today a good day to begin? Or no, wait until Leon Day and start with everyone else. I am sure you will come up with some great gift ideas. Have fun and don't forget to check out the site.

Lampe Berger Summer Fragrances - Review

So how does your home smell today? Mine smells like heaven. Why you ask? Its because I received two bottles of fragrance from http://www.lampeberger.ca/ and let me tell you, if I sit and close my eyes, I can imagine myself sitting on the beach in Hawaii or some tropical island taking in all the scents around me. The fragrance is wonderful. It is called Exotic Cocktail and is one of the new Summer scents. I absolutely love the smell of this fragrance. My hubby loves it too and he can be hard to please when it comes to a fragrance at times. This one we both love. I just wish computers had the "smellavision" so you could smell this fragrance yourself. This fragrance has the fragrance of Pineapple, Orange and Mandarin, along with Coffee, Rum and Coconut as well as Patchouli and Musk-Vanilla. Oh my its wonderful.


The other bottle is Daring Pepper. I have to say I have not tried this scent yet but will very soon. Now with this fragrance it has the smell of Saffron, Jasmine and Black Pepper, along with Violet, Raspberry and Plum Liqueur,as well as Vetiver and Vanill-Leather. Now don't these two new fragrances sound great? I know you won't be disappointed if you decide you want to order some of this.
One more new fragrance is called Summer Night. A simple ritual which combines the unique
Lampe Berger diffusion method with an effective insecticidal formula for long-lasting
elimination of mosquitoes. Perfumed with Ocean Breeze fragrance.


Lampe Berger also has some new lamps. Very pretty colors. Penta Blue and Penta Pink.


I can't wait now to try the Daring Pepper but I am sure it will be just as wonderful as all of the fragrances I have tried so far from Lampe Berger. If you are interested in buying some of the lamps or fragrances you can go to http://www.lampeberger.ca/ You can check the store locator to find a store near you. Make your home smell just as inviting as mine is and you will be the envy of the neighborhood. I guarantee it.
