Puppy Dog Pals Barks Up the Right Tree for Young Animal Lovers

Rolly and Bingo perfect their selfie poses. (Disney Junior) There are two types of people in this world: Dog People and Cat People. I am most definitely one of the former, which is why a show called Puppy Dog Pals is way more appealing to me than if it were called Furry Feline Friends or something. Disney Junior's newest cartoon Puppy Dog Pals debuts on Friday, April 14 at 10:30 am ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes on the Disney Channel. You can also catch it the very same day on the Disney Junior app and Disney Junior YouTube page. Bingo and Rolly soak up some rays in Hawaii! (Disney Junior) As the ...

Marvel Secret Wars figures in the closet. Hot Wheels under the bed. Uno cards on my bookshelf. You get the picture. In a sense, you could say my entire house was a toy box, with ample playability just an arms' length away. Now as an adult, I still don't have a real toy box, but I do have a home office with oodles of toys taking up most of my bookshelf. Plus, we have a basement where I can just "hide" my favorites ...

Disney is Sending Me on a San Francisco Treat!

As a blogger I have way too many blogger friends. And when something good comes along, it spreads like wildfire. Or rather, not fire but dust. Pixie Dust. See, Disney really knows how to take care of its bloggers, offering some amazing opportunities in the form of press trips with once-in-a-lifetime access and opportunities. Thanks to Disney, I've flown out to L.A. to interview Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Costner, Ginnifer Goodwin and yes, even Kermit the Frog! It's been a while mainly due to scheduling on my part, but I'm happy to say that I received some extra glittery pixie dust in my email recently. Not only am I going on another fun-filled, ...
