Freddy Frogface DVD Review

Freddy Frogface is a Phase 4 film and was released in July of 2012.  it is rated PG and is approximately 85 minutes long. The story is about 10-year old Victor and his friends, who not only have to face a world full of stern grown ups but also the town bully, Freddy Frogface.  (He actually ate a frog to earn that name title?) When a circus comes to the sleepy little town, Victor is thrilled at having the chance to perform in a talent show with his dog Sausage.  Yet Freddy soon comes up with a sinister plot of his own to spoil Victor's plans.  You can find Freddy Frogface at Redbox locations, Target, Walmart,

My Review:
I asked my daughter what she thought of the movie, in her words "Freddy is not nice!"   The main thing she picked up from this movie is how nasty this bully acted and she picked up on that very early in the DVD.

The movie did lose her attention after about the 45 minute mark.  I found her playing and not paying attention to the movie any longer, which is very uncommon for my daughter.

I also was not a fan of the nasty remarks, icky talking, and rude behaviors that are simply annoying that the movie had.  I try to keep teaching my daughter not to use words and actions like that and it gets frustrating when movies use slang or annoying actions and teaches them to do it.  I am not recommending this movie, I just don't feel it is very family friendly.  I thought about turning it off but decided to finish watching for the review since my daughter was no longer watching.  On a positive note there was some redemption and forgiveness given to Freddy so that is great and could be discussed.

Since bullying is a big issue in schools and my almost 5 year old is starting 4K in a couple weeks I took the opportunity to talk about bullying.  We discussed why people do it and how to avoid it and what to do if she gets bullied.

This weekend we were going to rent this movie. It sounds like we were lucky they were out if it. It is frustrating when there are so many shows and movies out there where the language and content is just not appropriate. Personally, I want to keep my daughter a little girl as long as possible and the media just doesn't help sometimes.

Glad I came across your review. I think we will be doing another activity and not renting that move.

Have a good night!

Julie- So glad you did not waste your money! :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
