Friendsgiving Made Easy With Oriental Trading

 

Throwing a Friendsgiving gathering this Thanksgiving season?  Setting the table is a breeze with all of the great stuff you’ll find at Oriental Trading!  Dinner with friends is great, but dessert is even better so I put together a fun Fall inspired Friendsgiving dessert layout for right around $75, how cool is that?  Everyone can serve themselves, and there’s even some super cute containers for guests to take some leftover treats home.

Top 4 Holiday Movies For Kids From NCircle

 

Looking for great holiday movies for your little ones?  There are a few available from NCircle that my children and I really enjoy.  Whether your little ones are just a couple years old, or on the older side, there’s something for everyone.  These are the perfect movies to get kids in the mood for the holidays or they even make great stocking stuffers or additions to Christmas Eve boxes if you do those (we love doing an Christmas Eve box with new pjs, a new movie, comfy socks, and a few snacks).  These are our 4 favorite holiday movies from NCircle, we hope you’ll enjoy them too:

 

#1 A Very Awesome Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Holiday Show!

 

Yo Gabba Gabba is a crowd favorite among the younger crowd and this is the perfect holiday DVD for young Yo Gabba Gabba fans everywhere!  A Very Awesome Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Holiday Show! is really that, it’s AWESOME!  There’s only one thing more fun than Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! And the holidays – putting them together!  Join DJ Lance Rock, Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex and Toodee as they dance, sing and decorate the tree to prepare for the arrival of Santa Claus!  Filmed live at New York City’s the Beacon Theatre, celebrate the season with the colorful cast of characters singing their hits, including ‘It’s Wintertime,’ ‘Every Snowflake’s Different, Just Like You’ and a holiday version of everyone’s favorite ‘Party in my Tummy!’.  Including special appearances by superstar Leslie Hall and the one and only Santa Claus!

 

#2 Doozers Giant Gingerbread House

My daughter fell in love with Doozers a while back and loves when we get to see new Doozer adventures.  Doozers: Giant Gingerbread House is a great addition to any Doozer lover’s movie library.  The Pod Squad want to build a Doozer-sized Gingerbread House!  However, in order to achieve such a large size Gingerbread House it’s going to take some clever construction to create.  Can the Pod Squad do it?  Then, Daisy Wheel wants to ice skate with the others, but she doesn’t know how.  Together, the Pod Squad build her a custom Doo-Step Skating Dress that let’s her glide across the ice in no time.  Weee!  Enjoy these adventures and six more focusing on science, technology, engineering and math!

 

#3 Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab: Twas The Night Before Liftoff

Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab: Twas The Night Before Liftoff is a great movie for younger and older audiences to come together and find a movie that they can agree on (which seems impossible in my home sometimes).  Unknown to the world, Thomas Edison built a secret lab where he invented a virtual version of himself and a steampunk robot named Von Bolt.  Years later, Angie, a twelve-year-old science prodigy, discovers the lab.  When an old friend of Edison’s visits the lab and asks the Secret Lab Kids to help him with an urgent, top-secret project, they have to follow him through a wormhole to get to his own secret lab.  Who could this mysterious friend be and what is this top secret project during the holiday season?

 

#4 Sonic Christmas Blast

Sonic Christmas Blast is another great way for audiences of different ages to come together and watch a movie together.  My children are 6, 12, and 14 and it’s not often there’s a movie all 3 will watch together, but this is one of them.  Santa Claus announces his retirement on television and the public is shocked! But it’s Santa’s replacement Robotropolis who has everyone worried. It seems Robotropolis has his own ideas and instead of giving boys and girls gifts Robotropolis would rather receive them. Join Sonic the Hedgehog in an adventure to rescue the spirit of Christmas and bring joy back to the world!

 

These are just a few of the available holiday titles from NCircle, make sure you visit their site and check out everything they have to offer so you can find the holiday themed movies that are the perfect fit for your little ones.
