Get ready for your little ones' heads to explode! In 2018, the high-energy "Disney Junior Dance Party On Tour" will hit the road to perform 50 shows across the country. Inspired by favorite Disney Junior series, the interactive concert tour includes songs from Mickey and the Roadster Racers, Sofia the First, Elena of Avalor, Doc McStuffins, The Lion Guard, as well as newest hit series Vampirina and Puppy Dog Pals. The live concert will also include a brand-new interactive experience featuring Disney Junior's highly-anticipated series, Muppet Babies, launching in early 2018.
I've been talking-up Disney Junior's Vampirina for months, and now that the series is officially out, families have quickly fallen in love with The Hauntley family and their adventurous daughter, Vee (Vampirina). Perhaps learning from past experience in which fans of a hit series have to wait months (sometimes years) as their kids constantly ask "when are the toys coming out?," Vampirina launched with a full line of fun products, and at the center of that is a fantastic line of toys from Just Play. On October 13 - yes, Friday the 13th - I will be joining The Toy Insider for their first-ever #Vampirina Twitter Party! We'll be giving friends and followers chances to win some of these incredible new toys! To participate, you must RSVP, so be sure to do that now!
I've written at length about PJ Masks over the course of the past two years, and what's really cool is that the legend of these young heroes just continues to grow as more families discover the adventures of Catboy, Gekko and Owlette. Despite airing daily on Disney Junior, this is an example of a program that's not actually produced by Disney (it's eOne and Frog Box), so it sorta stands on its own. Now, for those who may not have seen it (or those who have and just want to access it at any time), PJ Masks has come to Netflix with the entire first season streaming now!
