Mommy Mandy is hosting a giveaway to promote the awareness of eating and living healthy.
Here are the details on the giveaway:
Because Disney Family recognizes the importance of eating and living healthy, they wanted to provide tips and advice on slashing sugar, cooking light, healthy recipes and more. That’s why Family.com has partnered with Jamie Oliver – America’s new healthy food champion – and has recently added brand new site content focused on living better and living well. Jamie Oliver’s show, ‘Food Revolution,’ addresses how families can rediscover ways to cook simple, delicious and affordable meals, and Family.com now features recipes from Jamie as well as his personal tips for healthy living. In addition, you can also stream episodes of Food Revolution from the site.
To spread the word about Family.com’s partnership with Jamie Oliver, and the corresponding site content, I’m offering a gift pack to one winner which includes Jamie Oliver’s book, Jamie’s Food Revolution, Family.com branded over mitts and apron, a cutting board and bowl set (approximately an $85 value.)
Some crazes fade just as quickly as they arrive –- but sometimes they are just too fun ignore! Two new crazes have found their way into Disney Parks and judging by how unique and cute they are, I’m sure we’ll be seeing them around for quite some time.
Pook-A-Looz, the new line for plush, apparel, and accessories from Disney Consumer Products are truly too cute for their own good! Pook-A-Looz were created to capture the personalities of iconic Disney characters in an offbeat and unique way. The new line features more than 30 different characters ranging from classic characters such as Alice In Wonderland, Muppets, to favorites from Pixar films.
Pook-A-Looz were first debuted at D-23 last September, since their launch, Pook-A-Looz have exploded, not only retailers across the country but at Disney Parks as well. Be on the lookout, later this fall, Disney Theme Parks will be releasing Pook-A-Looz that can only be found in the Disney Parks! Disney Parks Pook-A-Looz designs range from Sorcerer Mickey to Yeti & Figment! Here’s a sneak peek at an upcoming Pook-A-Looz that will be found in Disney Parks!

One look at these adorable characters and you will understand why the tagline says they are “Too Cute For Their Own Good.” Pook·a·Looz are a new take on your favorite Disney characters, but with Tokyo Pop inspired style. If you love Disney, cuteness, harajuku, etc., take a look at Pook·a·Looz!
They were introduced at the D23 Expo and have been slow to hit stores. I recently ventured to the Disney Store in Raleigh, NC and stumbled upon some of the Alice in Wonderland Pook·a·Looz characters in the store.
These were my first exposure to Pook·a·Looz, but the Alice in Wonderland dolls were the only Pook·a·Looz merchandise I saw in the store. So I went home and started researching them. I actually found that they did not even pull up on a search on the Disney Store site and that there had been reports that other stores would carry them before Disney did. This is what lead me to Toys R Us. Toys R Us has journals, t-shirts, keychains, purses, stuffed animals, jewelry, etc. I picked up the following items below at Toys R Us.
A lot of people may assume these items are just for little girls, especially since they are being sold at Toys R Us. Well, the little girls will love them, but women of all ages that are into Disney and cute, fun fashion will enjoy these items!
The prices are also great. The cheapest item above was the bracelet at $5.99 and the most expensive was the bowler bag at $14.99. However, please be aware of prices and shop around when looking for Pook·a·Looz items. During my inital research, I checked out Amazon and found other sellers (not Amazon) attempting to sell the stuffed animals starting at $20 and going up to $33. These are the same toys you can get at Toys R Us (in store or online) for $12.99 each. It appears that some individuals are trying to make hefty profit while the market is not yet flooded with merchandise.
Be on the lookout because Pook·a·Looz are headed your way and they are seriously cute and addictive!
