Get your musical on!!!!




After Disney's success with the High School Musical movies they have gone full steam ahead on the musical genre.   The soon to be released HSM spin off, 'Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure' is another of these.

Sharpay is on the search for success.  Due to the fact that she is primarily an obnoxious, spoilt brat she is in for many surprises along the way and discovers success isn't that easy to find.

"pretty good" is the response I got from my 8yo son and "awesome!" came from my 7yo daughter.  Mind you, anything with 'glamour' and music appeals to them.  I found it to be a tad over the top and didn't like the role modelling presented by Sharpay.  Great that the brat evolves into a semi likeable character but I know my daughter is highly impressionable as I am sure many other little girls are.  How about some positive role models Disney!

However, if you are looking for something to entertain your wee ones then this movie will do it for sure!

This is due for release on  29th June 2011, and I notice you can now buy most of these dvds at the supermarket!  How easy is that!

I have one copy of this dvd to give away.  To be in the running, leave me a comment and tell me your favourite musical!   Also be sure to tweet the post!   Competition ends 25th June 2011





Disclosure: I received a complimentary review copy of the DVD courtesy of Disney Channel via Aussie Mummy Bloggers. No financial payment was offered nor accepted for this post. All opinions expressed are purely my own.

Long time no see! but back with prizes!!

WOW!  What a shocking couple of weeks I have had!  I won't bore you with the details, but pneumonia and over a week in hospital should give you an idea. 


To make up for my absence I am giving away TWO DVDs.  


Yup!  you heard it here!    
TWO DVDs
Needless to say, my kids have had some extra screen time lately while I recuperate.

Two dvd's were sent to us recently for review, one for the littlies and another for the tweens.

The first is Mickey Mouse Club House -  Minnie's masquerade.  My kids love Mickey and his friends and so they should, he truly is timeless.  I remember watching the original when I was young.  It is still fun and what I call clean and safe viewing.  You know there won't be any surprises that you'd rather they didn't see!
To see a preview visit here

To win a copy of this DVD simply leave a comment and tell me who your favourite Disney character is and why!   This will be a quick competition and will be drawn on Saturday 21st May 2011 by random selection.

Second DVD is the all-new Disney Channel Original Movie, Lemonade Mouth Extended Edition.  Lemonade Mouth is the story of five freshmen with nothing in common who meet by chance in detention and bond instantly as they discover their shared passion for music, friends and standing up for what you believe in.
Again, my kids loved this. I also thought it was a nice and positive story line where the teenagers fight for what they believe in.  
You can see a short preview of the movie here before it is officially released on 1 June 2011.

To win this DVD simply leave a comment and tell me what would you call a rock band!
