Transformers: Beast Wars Season One DVD

June 16, 2011
My husband started sharing his childhood loves with our son a very long time ago. One thing that they've always shared an intense interest in is Transformers. From the toys to the tv shows to the blockbuster movies, Transformers enthrall and enchant both my husband and my son. In the mid 90s, a Transformers tv show debuted and ran for three years. My husband and son may have missed it back then but, thanks to Shout! Factory, they can both experience all the fun of Transformers: Beast Wars now!

Transformers: Beast Wars is the story of the conflicts between the heroic Maximals and the evil Predacons who are the descendants of the Decepticons from the original series. In this series, Transformers disguise themselves as the fiercest and most ferocious animals on Earth. A fun twist from the original Transformers, this series proves entertaining for boys and men of all ages. The Transformers: Beast Wars Season One DVD contains four discs featuring all 26 episodes from the first season of this fantastic show.

My son and his friends love to pop in one of these discs for a background imagination booster while they play with their Transformers toys. Just like all the superhero stories out there, Transformers is something that is just quintessentially loved by boys.

Even better than this 4 disc set of season one, fans can now get the whole series on dvd! Transformers: Beast Wars - The Complete Series Collector's Edition is an 8 disc set that contains the entire series along with tons of extra features including featurettes, a 12 page book plus a collectible comic book. Whether you go with the Season One DVD set or the Collector's Edition box set, Transformers: Beast Wars makes an amazing gift for any boy (or man!) in your life. I highly recommend them both!

You can get Transformers: Beast Wars in retail stores nationwide and from online locations like Amazon.com and shoutfactorystore.com.

The Wild Thornberrys Season One DVD Set

June 6, 2011
I'm always looking for shows that my kids can watch and enjoy that don't entirely irritate me. A while back, they discovered a new show that I absolutely love and that completely cracks them up. The Wild Thornberrys is a classic Nickelodeon show that, like all of the classic Nickelodeon shows, is entertaining for both kids and parents.

The premise of the show follows the Thornberry family as they travel the world looking for rare animals to film and focuses on their daughter, Eliza, who has t...

Professor Kobre's Lightscoop

May 7, 2011
I've been an on-location, natural light photographer for a while now. Shooting in natural light is easy and makes editing painless. Moving indoors, without all the fancy schmancy equipment, is another story. I had put off indoor shooting for quite some time, aside from the Momtogue shots I take of my kiddos or at family functions. Like many others, I assumed that to get amazing indoor shots that didn't require tons of editing, I'd have to splurge on some top of the line equipment and flashes....

Bambi - Diamond Addition

March 8, 2011
I know so many people who can describe to you their first memory of one movie in particular. No movie really seems quite as beloved as Bambi. I know that watching my kids watch Bambi for the first time was a magical experience. Watching it in all of it's digitally remastered glory really made it unbelievable.

For a limited time only, Disney has released Bambi from the vault and is adding the timeless movie its coveted, cutting-edge Blu-ray™ Diamond Collection line-up of Disney’s greatest ...

February 9, 2011
If you're anything like me, you're dreaming of getting a pretty little package from your sweetheart on Valentine's Day. For some it may be just this time of year that gets them longing for jewelry but, getting gorgeous jewelry doesn't have to be limited to only a day or two and with prices like those at Pearls of Joy, it's easy to make any day a special day.

The first time I found Pearls of Joy I was astonished. Not only are their pearls tremendously beautiful but, their prices are so insanel...

Decorative Ceiling Tiles

February 1, 2011
Last year when I did my home makeover, one of the things that I left undone was my ceiling. It remains unfinished for several reasons, though I desperately want to redo the entire thing. Our ceilings are the old popcorn ceilings. While doing my renovations, I considered two options for my ceilings, neither very appealing. Either I can cover everything in my house and make a humongous mess to scrape all the popcorn off and then paint the whole area or install new ceiling. One is incredibly mes...

GelPro Anti-Fatigue Floor Mats

January 14, 2011
I've got a family of four, I cook most of our meals from scratch and I've got no dishwasher.

I spend a lot of time in front of my sink. Washing dishes.

I don't mind washing dishes. Most women think I'm crazy but, I really enjoy it. What I do not enjoy is spending that time standing at my sink uncomfortable.

For several weeks, however, that time spent at the sink has been much more comfortable. Why? Because I got a new floor mat for my kitchen. How could that make such a difference? Because it'...

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

November 17, 2010
You know, there are a few movies from our childhood that just don't lose their sparkle and magic. One of my favorite movies that will forever be magical for me is Mary Poppins. For others, it's The Sound of Music. Added to that list of classic children's movies that will forever stand the test of time is absolutely Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It seems that Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews pretty much made movie gold out of all the kid movies they made.

This November, old and new fans are now able...
