It's official our home has become a Disney Junior household and we couldn't be happier! As all of my readers know, we were ecstatic when our cable provider brought us Playhouse Disney and in an effort to improve their programming and offer all of our children more of what they love, they have just changed from Playhouse Disney to Disney Junior as of May 6th, 2011. What does this mean exactly? Well, you're going to notice a new logo, some new shorts, slight modifications (improvements!) to existing shows and advertisements and, best of all, the addition of some incredible programming!



A'hoy Mateys! That's what we have to say about that! Well, actually in pirate speak my 2 year old has begun saying "Arrr" because that's what a pirate says, or so I've been informed! All of this pirate talk has been born from the long awaited new Disney Junior program called Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Very simply put: Greatest. Show. Ever! Traditionally, pirates and their fables have been reserved for children that are older than the preschool stage but with Disney Junior program called Jake and the Neverland Pirates,, the excitement, fun and whimsy of Captain Hook and the gang is brought to life for preschoolers. My daughter couldn't love it more and I will admit that I do think it's the cutest thing that she very quickly picked up on the them song and sings along with it absolutely perfectly. It's cute and, as a Mom, I love that she is interacting with wholesome, child-friendly programming from a network that we can all trust. I love that her imagination is challenged and that she truly is engaged in something that the entire family enjoys watching!



Another addition is Mickey's Mousekersize which I spoke about in a previous post on behalf of Playhouse Disney/Disney Junior and since that post our family has had so much fun and laughed so hard while getting up off the couch and getting active with Mickey and his gang for a little while. And a little hint to all the moms out there - when you have other kids over for a playdate and the moms would just like to relax for a little while and chat over a cup of coffee, turn on Mickey's Mousekersize and let the kids really shake their sillys out! This is awesome when the munchkins are starting to get a little unruly and really need to focus and release some energy and they'll absolutely love you for letting them workout with Mickey! Don't you love being the best mom in the world? So just set your vcr's or, if you're lucky like us, your pvr and keep some episodes on hand - you'll thank me when you get to drink your coffee while it's still hot!



And let's not forget the original Canadian series, Stella and Sam. This cartoon actually is reminiscent of the styling of cartoons from my youth and, even in the absence of all of the high energy, vivid colours, Stella and Sam. engages, teaches and encourages children of all ages. I adore it and, of course, do love that it's as Canadian as you and I! I've found that it's a great show to turn on when you're trying to get your kids to calm down at the end of the day and I've often found myself using it as the bedtime show while my daughter has her milk and cookies. She loves to sit on the couch with Mommy and snuggle while we enjoy relaxing to the great adventures of Stella and Sam.!

And now for some super exciting news - to celebrate the launch of Disney Junior and the arrival of Disney Junior program called Jake and the Neverland Pirates, I have the pleasure of hosting a giveaway where one (1) of my Canadian readers will win a family pass (two adult and two child admissions) to check out the latest release of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides coming out later this month!
