Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie's Bow-Tique DVD review & giveaway!

On July 6, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-Tique DVD will be available in stores. The DVD includes 4 episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse starring Minnie. Thanks to the lovely people at Porter Novelli and Digital Parents, I have a copy to give away to a lucky person!

As soon as Emily saw this DVD in my hand she squealed with delight.

"Oh thank you Mummy, thank you, thank you!" She couldn't wait to watch it.

Meeska, mooska, Mickey Mouse!

The first episode is called “Minnie’s Pajama Party.” Minnie invites her friends over for a pajama party and has to get everything ready. With the "help" of viewers, and the Mousketools.

The next episode is called “Minnie’s Bow-Tique”, in which Minnie opens a new store selling all kinds of bows and bowties.

The third episode on the DVD is titled “Minnie’s Bee Story.” In this episode we meet Buzz Buzz, a bee who is blown away from his flower by the wind. 

The final episode is called “Minnie’s Picnic.” Minnie wants to have a picnic for 12 of her friends. Everyone pitches in to help. Lots of counting and problem solving!

At the end of every episode the gang do the Hot Dog Dance. Emily loves this song and I love watching her dance to it. I even found myself toe tapping and singing along.

Emily really enjoyed watching this DVD, over and over! I especially like how each episode is interactive with the viewer in some way. And we were delighted to see a bonus episode of Handy Manny at the end!

Sell 1000 things

Today I've been spending some time catching up on all the unread posts on my Google Reader (1000+!) and I came across Tina Gray's post Sell 1000 things and thought to myself what a great idea!

I also read the post she linked to here by Kylie Ofiu on her blog Kylie Ofiu: Author 365 Ways To Make Money, Finance Blogger and Mother. After a quick browse of her blog, I will definitely be going back to read some more!

I figured it would be the perfect time for us to do this, we are still unpacking from the move and need to seriously downsize/declutter and there are a few things at the moment on my want list, not to mention the debt list!

So as we unpack boxes, I'll be selling stuff off! It's a win/win situation! I'm also implementing Tina's ticker idea too to keep my eye on the prize!

Thank you for the inspiration to sell my stuff, make some money AND unpack my house!

Wish me luck though, because I have been known to be a bit of a hoarder, which is probably why we have so much stuff to start with haha!

Now I just have to find the perfect medium to sell my stuff. I'd love to know how you sell your things?

Monday, June 13, 2011


So as you know, the last few weeks I've been busy packing to move house. Well good news, the packing is over! We are finally moved! Just got a LOT of unpacking to do now! It's a nice house, a bit smaller than the old one, so it looks like a fair bit of our junk stuff will stay in boxes.

I hadn't seen it until the girls and I came over on Thursday night. It was all up to hubby to find a place as he was here working while I was 4 hours away packing! Needless to say, I was very nervous about seeing it for the first time! But I was worried for no reason, as it's perfectly fine. For now.

We hope to be in the market to buy our first home in about a years time, so I have to think about the big picture, not what this place doesn't have or how big (or small) the bedrooms are.
I've decided to make a list of all the good points about it, and focus on them. So, here goes:

  1. Great sized back yard for Emily to play, and I can see it all from the kitchen window. Although it's too cold at the moment to play out there!
  2. Smaller house = less cleaning!
Oh dear, this isn't going well! Might have to work on this list over the next couple of weeks, after all this is only day 4!
