MALEFICENT in theaters today!! Check out some new trailers, and a FREE Multi-Touch Book on iBooks #Maleficent

 She is here! It is time for Maleficent! I know it is exciting right? We have been waiting for what seems like forever (I know, I am being impatient… but….) and now it is time! Sure I read the books, and I know pretty much all that is going to happen in the film… it is just not the same as seeing all of the action on the big screen. Here are some great clips to get you excited to see this great looking movie:

 Maleficent - Clip "Fairy Godmother"
Aurora and Maleficent come face-to-face in the Moors.  
             
Maleficent - Clip "In The Clouds"
Maleficent’s massive wings carry her through the Moors and above the clouds. 
Maleficent - On The Battlefield Featurette
Go behind the scenes as the cast and filmmakers create one of the biggest battle scenes in the film. 
            
“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora.
As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
The “Maleficent” book is available for free, exclusively on iBooks at: http://di.sn/hf7
            
The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. “Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Michael Vieira, Don Hahn, Palak Patel, Matt Smith and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Trailer
           
 From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.
 To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Are you looking forward to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy?

Thankfully Best Buy is here to help and to make sure you get the perfect gift for the dad’s in you life.  My husband is an entertainer of sorts, he loves games and movies and watching sports in his man cave.

LACTAID® Milk real milk that is 100% Lactose Free! #BeyondLI #MC #sponsored #Giveaway #Recipe

 “I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for National Dairy Council and the LACTAID®Brand. I received product coupons from the LACTAID® Brand to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
Something a lot of people have to deal with is lactose intolerance. In my family my husband and my daughter are both lactose intolerant and used to avoid milk and dairy products at all costs. Avoiding dairy isn't something you want to do, milk plays a pivotal role in having a healthy lifestyle with all of their essential vitamins. According to the National Dairy Council dairy products play a vital role in not only your general health but also in keeping your bones strong, maintaining a healthy weight and helping to keep your heart healthy and your blood pressure under control.


If you're in a family like mine where dairy isn't something everyone's systems can process you need an alternative and not just something that is milk like that doesn't really do anything to promote better heath, you want the real thing and the real thing is LACTAID® Milk, Ice Cream, Cottage Cheese, Eggnog and lets not forget their Dietary Supplements for when you're traveling. LACTAID® has been a part of my life for as long as I've been living with my husband, he swore by their supplements and now that there is a large variety of products he and our daughter can enjoy dairy without consequences.

Walgreens Clear The Voice, purchase any CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™ product and get 2 Free song downloads!


 This post is sponsored by Global Influence, all opinions are 100% my own.
 
Are you a fan of The Voice? We are huge fans, for us it is the perfect family singing competition show.  I love that the contestants are judged on their voice, not their look, or their age, or any physical attribute. The Voice is the most important part of a singing competition right? We have been fans from the very beginning, first I was a huge fan of Adam, being the best judge… then I had to give it to the ladies, Shakira, and Christina, they all knew talent when they heard it… 

But overall my favorite judge has to be Blake Shelton, he seems so genuine and sincere, just like an old friend, he seems like he would be just like this in person just a great guy. He has an ear for talent, and it shows.  The contestants that have caught my eye this year are,  Jake Worthington’s rendition of Heaven gave me goose bumps! He is going go far in country music, he is born to sing!  Christina Gimmie, Apologize was my favorite song of the season so far, as soon as I heard it I was ready to go out and buy the single, I was sold!

Summer Guide: Great toys from Hasbro your kids will love!


 We here at Susan’s Disney Family are putting together a great Summer Guide for all of you guys and gals. I have searched for the best of the best for summer. I would like to start the guide with a favorite company of mine Hasbro. Hasbro, a great toy company that I grew up with and  my daughter loves. From classic toys like Nerf, My Little Pony, to new classics like Telepods, and FurReal Friends Hasbro has toys you know the kids will have fun with this summer. I have come up with a few of my favorite Hasbro toys for some summer fun!

With a little less than a month left in my daughter's school year we're looking ahead to the summer and what she can do to have fun. Thankfully I have a few things up my sleeve to help her pass her time this summer both indoors and outdoors. When the weather gets warmer I'm constantly hearing “I want to go outside and get wet!” This year we have a new way of getting wet....make that two new ways. The Nerf Barrage Soaker and the Nerf Rebelle Blue Crush Soaker.

NERF SUPER SOAKER BARRAGE Water Blaster - (HASBRO/Ages 6 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Spring 2014) SUPER SOAKER fans can outlast and intimidate the competition with the massive capacity BARRAGE  Water Blaster! This blaster holds 84 ounces of water and allows players to use the adjustable nozzle to soak opponents with one of three firing modes – Distance (over 35 feet!), flood mode (a colossal splash!) or scatter mode(to widen your target). Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com

 NERF REBELLE SUPER SOAKER BLUE CRUSH Blaster - (Ages 6 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $12.99/Available: Spring 14) Make a stylish splash with the NERF REBELLE SUPER SOAKER BLUE CRUSH blaster! Keep things cool with  a big blast of fun and a whole lot of style. Perfect for a sneak attack, the BLUE CRUSH packs a whole  lot of power, blasting water up to 38 feet! Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.

 
Who doesn't love a good water gun fight to help keep cool under the hot summer sun? With these two really cool super soakers my daughter and her target (my husband) will have a blast shooting at each other. The Rebelle is a smaller handgun type water gun that can hold 20 ounces of water and can reach up to 38 feet. 
What I like is this gun is aimed to girls, water guns usually learn towards being more of a boys toy but girls like playing with water guns as much as boys and now they have their own guns to bring to the fight. 
And if you're heading into a big fight you're going to want to bring the Barrage with you. You don't bring a knife to a gun fight and with the water gun you will make your opponents quake in fear. With a whopping 84 ounce water capacity and the ability to fire 3 different ways (flood, scatter and distance) you'll be able to handle yourself just fine.

 But what if it's raining out and you can't play outside? That's what the Hasbro Disney Princess Pop-Up Magic Castle game is for. With a really cool pop-up castle in the center of the board you can play as Ariel, Belle, Snow White or Aurora with the object of reaching the enchanted Finish stone to win. The cool thing about this game is that you can connect it with other Disney pop-up games to make the game longer and more interesting. 

That's a very cool feature that has many possible ways to set up the game. I love variety and with that feature you've got a ton of variety. These are just a few of the things from Hasbro that will help make your kids summer enjoyable inside or out.



Disney Princess Castle: POP-UP MAGIC Game - (Ages: 3 & up/Players: 2—4/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Spring 2014) Immerse yourself in the worlds of your favorite Disney Princess characters with the all-new Disney Princess Castle: POP-UP MAGIC game. Kids can play as Ariel, Belle, Rapunzel or Snow White as they travel along the 3D game board through twists and turns to the magical pop-up castle to win. Expand the fun by connecting the Disney Tangled, Princess Cinderella’s Coach and Frozen POP-UP MAGIC games (each game sold separately). Set includes 4 princess figurines and friend tokens.



So if you are looking for some great summer toys fun be sure to check out the great toys at the Hasbro Shop.  Make sure to check back for other items added to my summer guide, for some summer hit, some fun tips to get prepared for summer!



Are there any Hasbro summer toys your kids would love?
