Hot Toys for the Holidays!

I am so excited to share news about our new additions to the family!

Thanks to our friends at Spin Master Toys, we recently welcomed Jester & Tiger Tail to our home. 

Jester is the newest member of the Zoomer Dino family. He has a great new look and a really fun personality. It's no wonder his name is Jester. He is the family clown! Jester can perform awesome tricks such as walking like a Zombie and clucking like a chicken. 

Zoomer Chomplingz are the most mischievous mini dinos and Tiger Tail is definitely a handful. He growls, laughs, roars and his eyes change color to match his mood so you never know what you're going get with this little dino. Did I mention that he is a chomper? Hide your good shoes! 

My kids were so excited to introduce Jester & Tiger Tail to our pet Boomer! They instantly hit it off. 

Be sure to add Zoomer Jester and Zoomer Chomplingz to your holiday shopping list. They are sure to be a hit with kids ages 5 and up!

Happy Holidays!

Fandango Family: The Good Dinosaur Inspired Dino Cakes!

The Good Dinosaur is a heart-warming story about a young dinosaur named Arlo and his unlikely friendship with a little boy. 

With The Good Dinosaur gearing up to hit theaters this Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to bake a dozen Good Dinosaur inspired cupcakes. I've made skeleton cupcakes before so how hard could dinosaur skeletons be? 

What you'll need:

12 cupcakes 
Chocolate frosting
White cake gel


Top cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Make sure to have a nice smooth surface of frosting for the bones.

Using the white cake gel, make little dinosaur bones. It's really easy and turns out super cute!

Time to enjoy!

Meet Circle with Disney!

I'd like to introduce you to my new best friend!

If your kids are anything like mine, then they are on their iPads quite often. My kids each have their own iPads so I usually find them spread out throughout the house playing games, watching YouTube channels or making their Holiday wishlists. 

Circle with Disney is a new device that lets parents manage online screen time and filter content for all of their kids’ devices (phones, tablets, computers, gaming systems) while also giving users access to digital entertainment from Disney. 


Circle pairs wirelessly with your home Wi-Fi and allows you to manage every device on your network, whether it be a tablet, TV, or laptop. Using the Circle app, families can create unique profiles for each family member. From here, kids will have a connected experience that is designed just for them.

Circle with Disney has three differentiating factors:

  • SEAMLESS INTEGRATION: Unlike many other internet management devices, Circle with Disney is NOT a router. Rather, it seamlessly integrates into a family’s existing home wi-fi network. There’s no need to setup a new wi-fi network or update all your devices with new wi-fi passwords. Once integrated, Circle with Disney is easily managed through an iOS app on the parent’s phone.

  • DISNEY CONTENTCircle with Disney will deliver a curated selection of Disney content including videos, blogs, gifs, emojis, music, games, characters and lots more. Content parents trust and kids enjoy.

  • 4G LTE COVERAGE:  Circle with Disney is the only device that has developed a solution for families to manage internet use on wi-fi AND 4G LTE networks. For mobile devices, Circle Media Inc. has created Circle Go, a companion subscription that covers all iOS devices when they are outside the home, including use on 4G LTE. Circle Go delivers the same key features of Circle with Disney, but now for your family on the go. Circle Go will be available in early 2016.

I am loving Circle with Disney!!!

Trick or Treat at the Los Angeles Zoo!

Trick or Treat at the Los Angeles Zoo October 24th, 25th & 31st!

I took my children to the LA Zoo last weekend to experience Boo at the LA Zoo and we had a ghoulishly good time! 

We explored the Super Natural Caves and met some friends along the way!

We entered the Graveyard Safari at our own risk and barely made it out alive!

We took a family ride on the spookishly decorated Tram!

We had so much fun walking around the LA Zoo looking for all of the freaky little details and decorations. They really did a great job haunting up the zoo.

We spent the entire day visiting all of the animals and making so many wonderful memories with our friends. 

You won't want to miss Boo at the LA Zoo this weekend because the zoo will be offering Trick or Treat stations for your little ghosts and goblins to visit. Along with trick or treating, your kids will enjoy the following weekend adventures.

Weekend Boo adventures include:
  • Creepy Crafts – Create bat and spider web masterpieces 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Dress Up with Campfire Cathy – Enjoy sing-alongs and free face painting at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Masterpiece Pumpkins – Marvel at expert carving demonstrations 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Fearsome Feedings & Creature Treats – Watch as our animal residents enjoy seasonal treats all their own. See schedule below. Warning: Includes carcass feedings. Parental discretion is advised.
  • Strolling Characters – Meet and take pictures with spooky and fanciful characters 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We'll see you at the Zoo!
