Feelings, nothing more than feelings: Inside Out now available on DVD and digital download

If you missed Disney Pixar’s Inside Out when it came to the theaters, perhaps you thought that getting kids to watch an animated movie about “feelings” would be about as exciting to them as one of those hour-long health movies that they have to watch in school. And yet, after laughing and crying through the film together — even my picky young teen — we can’t wait to do it all over again in the comfort of our home with the release of Inside Out on Blu-Ray/DVD. Just in time for a long, active weekend with family, when a little quiet time in front of the TV might be...

Pixar’s animated shorts collections will make your little movie lovers smile

I still remember the very first Pixar short film I ever saw, way back in 1986. It was called Luxo Jr. and told the story of two lamps playing with a ball. Such a simple story, from the little start-up animation company that grew big. Fast forward a whole bunch of years, and Disney PIXAR feature films are now among every kid’s favorites, but the short films are no less compelling. Which is why this new collection makes a fabulous holiday gift. Pixar Short Films Collection 2 pulls together a dozen animated shorts for your family to enjoy in one...

Yes you can, kids.

What happens when an artist from Pixar and a designer for the Gap meet, marry, and combine their talents? Tiny Teru tees. And the results are inspirational and awesome. The designs in this line of babies and kids’ shirts are inspired by classic children’s animation–so adorable (my daughter especially loves this baseball tee)–aand are all originally hand-drawn in pencil, mixed media or water colors. But what I love is that each sports a very important message: “I am able.” In fact, every design has some variation on the word “able,” like unforgettable and huggable.                                              ...

Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure – yes, it’s all that

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I take my Disneyland fix quite seriously and I love Mickey Mouse. So, you can only imagine my excitement when I was invited to check out the grand opening of the new Cars Land area of Disney’s California Adventure. I must admit, my expectations were high. Sky high, actually. And let me tell you, Pixar delivers. Imagine that you are sitting down with your wee ones watching Lightning McQueen on the big screen. Now picture yourself walking through the flat screen TV into that world–that’s truly what Cars Land is. Radiator...

Pixar’s Brave review – A princess movie without a handsome prince

It’s kind of hard to believe that Disney produced the wonderful new “princess” movie Brave. After all, there’s no handsome prince, no fantasy dance scene in a sweeping gown, and no dead mother. What there is is a strong (super strong) female lead, and a lot of big bears. Also, boys will like it too. Seriously. My girls, 5 and almost 7, simply adored Brave and so did their mama. It’s beautifully produced, funny on both a kids’ and an adult level–something John Lasseter is pretty awesome at–and dramatic enough to keep you interested right through the very end....
