Disney Pixar Inside Out

InsideOutBlurayComboArt_small[2]

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review.   Disney Pixar Inside Out   My Thoughts I could not wait for Disney Pixar's Inside Out to be released. As soon as I seen the trailer I knew it would be a hit. In fact my family and I stood in line to see it on opening night in the theater and we loved it! There are so many emotions that a child goes through. Many of them can be very confusing to a child and as parents it is hard to know sometimes just what our children are thinking and feeling. I was so happy to see that Disney made a movie that focuses on the emotions of children. It was not only fun to watch but it also helped to open up a conversation between my oldest daughter and I. We were able to talk about her feelings on different things and how we should react to some of the feelings we might feel. I loved getting to know my daughter better and I know that this is a conversation I would not have had with her without this movie. … [Read more...]

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Disneynature Monkey Kingdom   I look forward to every single Disneynature film that is released. Recently I was able to watch Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom with  my family. This is another great Disneynature film that will pull you right into the lives of beloved animals. It was neat to see the characteristics and lifestyles of these Monkey's. They are a neat animal that lives by a class system that I never knew about. I learned about how the "lower" class of Monkey's live and how it actually benefited Maya in the end. Such a neat and uplifting story. I loved watching Maya as she defeated the odds and raised her son Kip the best way that she possibly could. It did not matter if it was in the Jungle or in the City. She is a great Mom! Disneynature Monkey Kingdom is a show that will not only educate you but will also pull at your … [Read more...]
