Disney Junior to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Two shows my four year old loves and is frequently found watching on Disney channel are Doc McStuffins and Handy Manny. I was extremely excited when Disney Junior sent me this heads up email for details to share with you all on how these two shows will be scheduled to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

DOC, VAL, LAMBIE

In the new “Doc McStuffins” episode titled “My Huggy Valentine,” Doc receives a stuffed Valentine’s Day heart named Val as a gift and Lambie gets jealous because she thinks Doc likes her new toy better.  After diagnosing Lambie with “splitheartitis,” Doc reassures her that no one could ever take her place.  This episode of “Doc McStuffins” premieres Friday, February 1 at 10:00 a.m., ET/PT on Disney Channel and 4:00 p.m., ET/PT on Disney Junior.

Sounds like a cute episode of an already adorable show of a girl who helps stuffed animals get better. A show full of imagination and love for everyone. I enjoy snuggling up watching Doc McStuffins with K-man as often as I can and you bet we will try our best to tune into this special episode.

KELLY, MANNY

In the “Handy Manny” episode, Manny wants to ask longtime friend Kelly to a Valentine’s Day party.  With a little help from the tools, he finally works up the courage and asks her to attend Mrs. Portillo’s party with him.  The episode titled “Valentine’s Day Party” premieres Thursday, February 14 at 10:30 a.m., ET/PT on Disney Channel and 6:00 p.m., ET/PT on Disney Junior.

Handy Manny is adorable to begin with but in a different way than Doc McStuffins, this cute man helps others by fixing things and building new things. My son loves watching what Handy Manny will fix next!

Will you all tune into these two special Valentine’s Day celebration episodes?

Disney Junior Night Light Debuts September 4th

Disney Junior is debuting a new parent-targeted, kid-friendly short form programming on Tuesday, September 4, 2012 from 9:00pm – 4:00am ET/PT on the Disney Junior channel.

Chuggington Shares Some Traffic Safety Tips

This year, parents can teach their children how to stay safe on the roads by joining the more than 150,000 children who have taken the Traffic Safety Pledge as part of the ‘Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe!’ traffic safety program, which provides families with important traffic safety resources. Developed by NHTSA, the nation’s trusted source of traffic safety information, and the creators of Chuggington, the popular preschool television series, the campaign includes tip sheets, traffic safety games, an activity book, coloring sheets, a PSA currently airing on Disney Junior and more.

Holiday Safety Traffic Tips

  • The holidays are a busy time at shopping malls — especially parking lots. Drivers should be on alert for small children when reversing out of a parking space. Parents should never leave children unattended near an open trunk, where they can get trapped.
  • While winter clothes keep children warm, they can also interfere with the proper harness fit of a child in a car seat. Parents must make sure to place blankets around their child after they fasten the harness.
  • Last-minute shopping can be stressful and rushed. Parents should never leave infants or young children unattended in a vehicle—even if the windows are partly open or the engine is running.
  • Remember to always buckle up! Not only is it the law – it could help save your life.  {although it’s not law for age 18+ in NH it is common sense for all}
  • Play it safe and check your local news source for up-to-the-minute traffic information and weather conditions of the interstates and roads you will be traveling.
  • Last but not least, make it fun! Heading out on a ‘road trip’ to Grandma’s? Pack an assortment of age appropriate holiday music, DVDs (like The Chugger Championship) and travel games to make your trip fun for the entire family!

Will you be traveling this holiday season? What do you do to teach your children traffic safety tips in your family?

Chuggington Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe Campaign

It is true, I am a Chuggington Conductor and I wanted to share some traintastic news with you all about the Chuggington Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe traffic safety campaign!

October is International Walk to School Month and Chuggington announced it’s partnership with NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) in September so they have put together this great educational campaign to help you teach your Trainees how to be safe!

I know as a mom of two hyper boys I have had to really focus on teaching them to be safe, it’s a constant reminder for the boys but my daughter took to walking safely at a young age; only 2 years old. I teach the boys to watch traffic signs while I am driving too which means they know what the red, yellow and green traffic lights mean.

Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe aims to educate parents and children about all forms of transportation safety. In support of the Think Safe, Ride Safe, Be Safe campaign, Disney Junior will be airing PSA’s throughout the month of October. In addition you can find more safety tips, sign the traffic safety pledge, play games and more online today.

{DVD} Jake and the Never Land Pirates, A Family Fave

I was so excited to hear that Jake and the Never Land Pirates were going to release it’s first DVD and music set in September (2011). My three year old, Monster K, loves this show on Disney Junior and is often found singing along to the theme song. Forget getting him singing on my FLIP though, for some reason Monster K is camera shy when I really want to capture a fun moment in life.

About Jake and the Never Land Pirates

Jake and the Never Land Pirates is cable’s #1 series among Boys 2-5 and is on track to be Disney Channel’s #1 preschool series ever. It is the most co-viewed series among all Disney Junior and Nickelodeon series, with 47% of Moms watching with their preschooler. A music-filled interactive treasure hunt, the series introduces a crew of kid pirates – leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby – and follows their Never Land adventures as they work to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Smee, from Disney’s classic “Peter Pan.” Every episode features the animated Sharky and Bones characters as they pop up throughout to perform original pirate ditties, and each episode concludes with a live action music video featuring The Never Land Pirate Band.

I Remember when…

I was a child and enjoyed Peter Pan shows and movies, it seems the concept of Peter pan and never land will never die with future generations because Jake and the Never Land pirates have put fantasy, imagination and learning to work in this Disney Junior series. As a mom I know my son is watching something educational and as a kid my son knows he is watching something exciting & fun.

Encouraging imagination is important throughout the young years in your child’s life, why not encourage both learning and imagination through Jake and the Never Land Pirates? This would be a fab holiday gift this year!

Purchase on Amazon.com or at local DVD retailers.

Disclosure: I received this DVD for free. All opinions are based on my love of this show prior to release of the DVD pack.
