DIY Vampirina and Unicorn Hoodies

Vampirina is the spookiest ghoul on Disney Junior. That’s why with Halloween and cooler weather right around the corner, a Vampirina hoodie is a no-brainer. Your little one will feel like she’s checked herself in for the night at the Scare B&B where she can hang with Vee and the whole Hauntley family.

So, Your Kid Loves Deadpool

Disclosure- I received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and honest. All photos are my own, taken in my real house, with no crazy staging or photoboxes- there are no filters, wild edits, or photoshopping done. They have been (size) cropped to fit into the post. This is real life- you know, how it is when you actually use things- because authenticity matters.

How did that happen?  I’m not really sure how it happened here in my house, other then daddy is a comic book nerd.  Like a good parent, I said he needed to wait until he was older to read Deadpool.  Like a typical daddy, he went ahead a read it to him anyway, although he “modifies” certain words and phrases, since Deadpool is WAY not for kids. And now, my kid loves Deadpool.  It’s his very favorite.

It’s really hard to find anything about Deadpool in his size- t-shirts, costumes, really anything at all.  I’m not so very crafty or great at sewing, so that doesn’t help matters.  Since he already told me he wants to be Deadpool for Halloween this year, I have been looking for Halloween Costumes 2015. I knew it would be a tough one to find, and I was right.

JAKKS Pacific’s Winx Club Toy Line NYC Launch Event- Dolls, Costumes, and a DVD

Last week, we went to a cute event celebrating the new Winx dolls from JAKKS Pacific. Girls and their families were invited to transform into Winx Club fairies with mini makeovers, enjoy delicious smoothies, dance, and eat lots of sweets, candy, and cupcakes 🙂 Little just ate and danced- and played with all the pretty girls.

Nickelodeon has a new toy doll line- Winx Club Deluxe, available at Walmart and
Winx Club Deluxe is Nick’s first animated series targeted for girls. The show tells the stories of 6 friends- Stella, Flora, Bloom, Musa, Tecna and Aisha, and follows their journeys and adventures while attending fairy school at Alfia College. With all the girls who pranced about in those two costumes, and loved every minute of it- I am guessing that we will be seeing quite a few Winx fairies this Halloween.
