*On Location* Kit at Disneyland


The weather was a mild 77 degrees. We first visited Pixie Hollow: Home of the Fairies.


I could not believe the size of these mushrooms!


The hollow is filled with beautiful flowers.



It looks like Tinker Bell has left some of her "tinkering" items.




Our next stop was Mickey Mouse's home. Here is his radio.


I really liked this fancy car he had parked on his side table.


Mickey has many photos perched on his mantle.


Interesting to see what the Mouse of the house reads.



This cuckoo bird was a bit annoying and caused me to JUMP when he popped out.


Yes, Mickey has his own chicken coop!



The last stop was New Orleans Square.


I was so hungry, I had to stop for popcorn.


This ride is VERY spooky. Filled with grim grinning ghosts!


All in all this was a great day to visit the Happiest Place on Earth.

*In Store Report* New Vespa - LORI


In my local Target, the Wellie Wishers were located in the same aisle as OG, and on the same side of the aisle. They were moved to the aisle with the Mega Construx. Also, seems like their inventory is not being replenished.

Lottie Dolls - Donegal, Ireland


Our very first doll was created following 18 months of research. We spoke to retailers, industry experts, child psychologists, nutrition experts, parents and – most importantly – to kids. Our dolls look like kids.

They are dressed comfortably in clothes that are made from colourful and tactile fabrics. They have play-sets that encourage outdoor play, from fishing to body-boarding to fossil-hunting. And their bodies are based on the proportions of a 9-year-old child. (Their heads are a bit bigger though because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love the opportunity for a spot of hair-play?)
Based in Donegal, on the North-West coast of Ireland, Team Lottie is made up of people – three quarters of whom are women - who are passionate about preserving the magic of childhood. We’re also passionate about winning medals with more than 30 international toy awards won, to date. And we try very hard to work – and live - by Lottie’s rules: Be bold, be brave, be you!
