There’s so many great shows for kids out there right now, and another in the regular rotation here at Rock Father HQ is KATE & MIM-MIM. Airing on Disney Junior with new episodes beginning TONIGHT, Monday, August 1, at 8:30pm, the show is inspired on the adventures of a real-life girl and her beloved stuffed toy bunny, following the adventures of 5-year-old Kate and her stuffed friend Mim-Mim. “Thanks to Kate’s outsized imagination, in each episode the friends are transported to the fun-filled world of Mimiloo, where Kate’s little plush toy magically transforms into a larger-than-life playmate, and together they embark on exciting adventures with their colorful cast of friends.” Each Monday this month will bring a brand-new episode, while a full assortment of fantastic new toys from the folks at Just Play are hitting retailers right now! Having seen them first-hand at the recent Sweet Suite portion of Blogger Bash in New York City, I know a lot of kids will be wishing for them this Fall and Holiday season. Check out details on all the new episodes below!
