Horizon Group USA, makes of “Disney Princess” jewelry kits in California has agreed to pay a $225,000 fine for selling deceptively packaged items. Horizon would not admit any wrongdoing and the District Attorney’s Office has said that there is no evidence to suggest Horizon intended to defraud consumers.
A Chula Vista woman complained when her daughter bought a “Disney Princess” jewelery kit with her saved money and was ”crushed” when she opened it and it was only half full. The packaging depicted a full kit and this is where the fine comes in to play.
Horizon has agreed not to sell the kits any longer in California and have pulled thousands from store shelves.

The first feature-length animated film made, Snow White has been named the number one animated film by the AFI (American Film Institute). The film was seen by 20 million people in the first three months when it was released in the 1930s.
Many of the works in the exhibit have never been seen before and are now on display in a new gallery at the Walt Disney Family Museum. The exhibit features more than 200 works of art including conceptual drawings, early character studies, detailed story sketches, and animation drawings from the film. Also featured are delicate thumbnail layout watercolors, meticulously rendered pencil layouts, rare watercolor backgrounds, colorful cels, and vintage posters.
The exhibit runs through April 14th.

35 Days! Yes that is the countdown until our “Holiday” trip begins! I usually am pretty stress free (except for the night before/morning of the trip). This trip however is a bit different for me. This upcoming trip I will be traveling with BOTH kids! Yes I know some of you are old pro’s at this but for us this is the first time traveling with not just one child but 2! I am not embarrassed to admit I am a little stressed! I have the traveling with one kid down pat…Jr has been to Disney 3 times since he was born and on a Disney cruise (he is only 2). It was relatively easy to pack for one, get to the airport with one, fly with one, and tour the parks with one. This time is going to be so different! 2 car seats for the plane, most likely an extra bag of luggage due to unpredictable Florida weather in December, 2 single strollers or one double?! Oh the choices and preparation!
Even though I have only traveled with one I have learned so much! Things like head back for a nap (or you will be that family in the park…you know the family with the screaming tantrum throwing child, and the parents that are stressed out yelling at each other because of the screaming kid…side note…that has been us!) So as I prepare for the next phase in our Disney life, I am going to welcome you all along to take a ride with us! I am going to include you all on some tips and tricks, some packing thoughts and suggestions, decisions that are to be made, tools that we will use in the parks to help us get the most out of our vacation, and when we come back I will share with you new things that I have learned and some great memories that I just know we will make! So buckle your seat belts and join us for the next chapter in our crazy, busy, Disney loving family’s life! I am SO glad you are joining us!
First up on my to do list: PACK MY TOP 5 MUST HAVE/MOST FORGOTTEN ITEMS FOR THE KIDS!
In honor of the 75th anniversary of Walt Disney’s first feature-length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which is coming this December, Weldon Owen Publishing has released two new collections that chronicle the complete making of this ground-breaking animated movie. I received a review copy of both Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Art and Creation of Walt Disney’s Classic Animated Film and The Fairest One of All: The Making of Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and I am completely in awe of these works of art. Each is a visual and literary masterpiece of its own, and my family is sure to cherish these treasures for a long time.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Art and Creation of Walt Disney’s Classic Animated Film catalogs images of more than 250 artworks that will be on display at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, California, from November 15, 2012, to April 14, 2013. The exhibit (and book) includes early artist renderings and concept sketches, watercolor background paintings, and original and replica cels of Snow White scenes. It also features alternate character concepts, deleted scenes, and step-by-step process shots. The four-year filmmaking endeavor is detailed in descriptions and artist recollections throughout the book, making the reader feel a part of that historical event. It is truly fascinating to see live action reference photos and drawings with artist notes and directions scribbled in the margins, like the one seen below.
This week I decided to tackle some adorable cupcakes with the help of my 2 year old. We are always looking for fun activities that also aid in learning! Jr loved baking with mommy! The recipe can be found here! I think this recipe is a great on that can be used for a Halloween party!
First you will want to grab all of your supplies. I had everything pre-measured and pre-cut so my 2 year old didn’t get bored!
You will need:
- Cake Mix
- Vanilla Frosting
- Green food coloring
- Black decorators icing (we bought the one that is already in the tube)
- We used green melting chocolate for the ears (cut them into tear drops or leaf shapes)
- Green Laffy Taffy (I melted the taffy in the microwave for 8 seconds and stretched the taffy out, rolled it, and cut into small pieces for the antenna on top of the cupcakes.)
