This past Friday, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment officially announced a March 18 release date for FROZEN on Blu-ray and DVD. The title had already been featured in my ongoing list of upcoming home video releases for families, but now we know exactly when you'll be able to experience it at home. Having missed it in theaters (I told Addie I'd take her and it just didn't happen), we're really looking forward to it. Full specs on that release, along with updates on additional Disney releases below...

With running this website, being extremely active on social networks, and making a large part of my living from "new media" over course of the past decade, it often surprises people when they learn that I'm not big on tech for kids. Yes, I share news on the latest Apps and App-enabled toys, but I do that for the majority - the folks that are into that sort of thing, a large portion of my friends and readers. While I won't rule it out for the future, I do not own an iPad, nor do I own a tablet of any kind.
