Limited Time Offer: Disney Junior Magazine for $15 a Year {#Disney}

January 16, 2013 in Activities, Deals and Coupons, Disney by Amy Barseghian

Our children love getting the mail and it is always an extra special day when they receive their very own mail addressed to them.  Calvin loves his Lego Magazine and we recently ordered the Disney Princess Magazine for little Ava.

We love how their face lights up when they get their own mail.  Aside from the fact that a magazine subscription for your children makes them happy, we also love it for another reason…

A child having their own magazine subscription promotes reading.

We have so much that we try to do for our children these days, but giving them the foundation they need to be a strong reader is one of the most important tasks we have.

Ava and Calvin read their magazines with breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner.   They curl up in their blankies from gramma and grab their magazines.

It is pure magic to see.

For a limited time, you can get a year long subscription to Disney Junior Magazine for $15!  That’s a savings of 62% off the cover price so a great deal to say the least.  And for our Disney fans, what could be better than finding all of their favorite Disney characters in one place?

Each issue of Disney Junior Magazine includes storytelling, super fun games and activities, and tons of Disney fun from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Mickey, Handy Manny and more.  (If you have not done the math, each issue of Disney Junior Magazine comes out to less than $2!)  Your child will receive eight issues a year with this subscription and they get a free bonus digital book that they can read online right away.

Would your children love a Disney Junior Magazine subscription? When do your children read during the day?

Save $25 on Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two from @BestBuy & @Amazon

January 10, 2013 in Activities, Deals and Coupons, Disney, Games by Amy Barseghian

epic mickey 2

It’s no secret that we are huge Disney fans in our family.

So we were all very thankful to Santa for putting Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two under our Christmas tree this year.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is an adventure based action game that takes place in the Disney themed game world of Wasteland.   Users will experience the same open-ended environment as Epic Mickey which allows them to manipulate their way through their environment.  Players create their own paths in this game that features both Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.  Both of these characters also have their own tools that help them navigate their way…and the fact that they each have their own tools means they need…

each other.

Calvin and I have been playing Epic Mickey 2 together; I love having this special time with him just like we do with everything Disney.

If you are considering purchasing Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, you will want to act fast because you can save $25 on Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two when you buy it at Best Buy now through January 12th, 2013 (offer good in the USA only), which is an amazing price.  (Way better than Santa’s cost, that much I know. :))

This offer is good when purchasing Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two at Best Buy for the Nintendo Wii, XBox, Nintendo Wii U, or PS3.

I just checked prices of Epic Mickey 2 on Amazon as well and they appear to be matching this deal for $25 off as well!

Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is also a great game for siblings because they have to work together and the game is age appropriate for little kids as well.  Ava watches me play to learn how to do things and will be playing along with Calvin soon I am sure.

If you don’t see a need for this game now (as I can certainly understand since we are barely through the holidays…), buy it and put Epic Mickey 2 aside.  It will make a fabulous gift down the road!

Are you Epic Mickey fans?  Which games do you have and what gaming system do you use?  We don’t have the original Epic Mickey – do you?
