That’s Entertainment! – Review by Cara Potapshyn Meyers
The Princess Twins of Legendale
From the creators of Lalaoopsy with music from award-winning songwriter, producer, singer and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi – The Princess Twins of Legendale takes you to an unforgettable world of adventure full of princesses, fairies and magic. In the magical land of Legendale, two brave sisters must come together to reunite two worlds separated by an evil enchantment.
Princess Eve & Princess Dawn
Princess Eve and Dawn are the daughters of King Solter and Queen Luna. Separated at birth by an evil sorceress, and never knowing of the other’s existence, the two sisters set out on adventure to discover their past.
Cammie & Kylo
From the Day World, Cammie is Princess Dawn’s best friend. With her pet dragon by her side, Cammie is spunky and and full life. From the night world, Kylo is a hopeless romantic always there for Eve to brighten her day. He is mischievous and caring, and atop his flying horse he is always there to save the day.
King of the Day World and father to Dawn and Eve, King Solter is a loving father sheltering Eve from the tragic event that took her mother sister.
Dume is the evil Queen of the Night World. Jealous of King Solter and Luna – she kidnapped Princess Eve when she was just a baby. Raising Eve as a servant, Dume awaits the day when she can take over and rule the Day World.
What a hit this movie was with my niece and her friend! They are both at the stage in their lives when they dream of being princesses! They already dress up as Cinderella and Snow White. Now they have two new princesses to emulate! Almost immediately, my niece chose to “be” Princess Eve, leaving her friend to “become” Princess Dawn. Something tells me that if this DVD becomes even more of a hit than it already is highlighted to be, Aunt Cara will be shopping at Target for anything and everything “Princess Eve” this Holiday Season! Terrific fantasy movie that hit all Target stores yesterday! Pick one up for your favorite little Princess!

M-GO is the people-friendliest, new pay-as-you-go digital entertainment service that makes it easier than ever to browse, rent, buy and enjoy the broadest, newest and best selection of movies and TV shows on your screens. M-GO was created by people who love entertainment for people who love being entertained and is a joint venture between DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor. With both technology and entertainment in the company’s DNA, M-GO’s mission is to transform the world of digital entertainment on the viewer’s terms.
I had the opportunity to see exactly how streaming video worked through my laptop. I admit, I am a novice, but this gave me not only the chance to see how advancing technology has become so mainstream, it also allowed me to see an adult movie in probably ten or so years! Consumers were able to “vote” on one of several movies to choose from by going to Facebook’s M-GO site. The winning movie, with over 62,000 votes, was “Bridesmaids.” Since the only movies I go to see or rent are kid’s movies, I was delighted to actually see an adult movie! Because I haven’t seen an adult movie in a dog’s age, I had absolutely no preconceived notions about the movie. I ended up loving it! I laughed, I cried, I giggled…it felt so wonderful seeing such a fun movie!
I also ended up registering for an account with M-GO. This way, if I want to watch a streaming movie again, I can simply log in, choose from a vast array of movie selections, download the movie and I’m done! I can also pause the movie or save where I need to and continue watching at a later time. I know streaming video has been around for quite some time. For some of us who are lagging behind in technology by a few steps, it is great fun when you catch up with the rest of the tech world! Try it out for yourself! Go to M-GO.com to see the vast array of movie selections for your family to try!
How to Raise a Billionaire Genius
Sean Campbell and D. Hornby
From attachment-parenting hugs to Tiger Mom discipline, the so-called experts offer plenty of contradictory advice on how to raise the perfect child.
“How to Raise a Billionaire Genius” is a bit different. This hilarious, not-so-expert guide to parenting will ensure your precious offspring will turn out to be exactly what you want: a supermodel, a pope, a doctor or even Stephen Colbert.
This book will walk you through each step of raising a billionaire or astronaut from conception through completion, with tips on diet, education, toys, attire and even appropriate names. (For example, to raise a supermodel, “make sure play-dates are only with the beautiful babies in the neighborhood, and always include at least an hour of catwalk crawling.”)
This humor book is the perfect gift for expecting or new parents.
Parenting has never been so easy with “How to Raise a Billionaire Genius.”
This book was such a hoot to read! Each “tongue-in-cheek” chapter had me chuckling either because of what needed to be done to “ensure” that you would have the child of your desire or simply the names suggested for each category of child. I would love to give this book as a gift to new parents or as part of a Baby Shower gift! Even “seasoned” parents, such as myself will get a kick out of reading this book. Cute and well thought out! What most parents need in their lives!
