Handy Manny – $200 Gift Pack – CLOSED

A few weeks ago, I brought you a review of the  Playhouse Disney Channel.  One show that my family loves is Handy Manny (also known as Hanny Manny in my home – you can frequently hear my little one saying “Hanny, Hanny, Hanny, Hanny Manny” over and over again).  I am also guilty of singing the Handy Manny theme song – it’s just so catchy.

Along with my daughter loving this show (yes – girls can like Handy Manny too), I love the show too.  Spanish is my 3rd language, so I enjoy watching Handy Manny for the Spanish / Latino “culturo” and flare.  I also love how Manny and his special tools work together to fix things around the neighbourhood, what a great lesson for children.  Handy Manny is the local fix it guy and is  always cool, calm and collected even when things are broken and others may get a little flustered.  Handy Mandy (who is played by Fez from that 70’s show), always has a positive outlook on getting the project complete and working with his friends to get it done.  How could anyone not like this guy?!?

Handy Manny is on the Playhouse Disney Channel each day @ 9:30 am EST, and is also on the Family Channel on Saturday mornings, this is when we watch Hanny Manny work together, “todos juntos”.

If your kids can’t get enough of Handy Manny, they can get their “fix” on Playhouse Disney online.  There are fun games that teach your children colours, adding and words in both English and Spanish (on a side note, I think it’s very important for kids to learn different languages, we are teaching my daughter French and English).  Some of the games may be for the older toddlers, but younger kids can enjoy  playing and making music, watching videos and dancing to the Handy Manny theme song.

Handy Manny is a very popular show in my home.  It’s educational, fun, entertaining and has a positive message for children of all ages.

Giveaway: One luck reader is going to receive a $200 Handy Manny Gift pack that includes:

•       3 Full Length Handy Manny DVDs – Manny’s Green Team, Motorcycle Adventure, and Big race
•       Manny’s Tool Assortment (Pat & Rusty, Stretch & Dusty, Squeeze & Felipe)

Pop Art Toaster- Sandwich Maker – CLOSED

Have you ever bought or received something and it turned out to be completely different than you imagined?  This recently happened to me – and it was a very good thing.

I worked with Pop Art Toaster in the past, I reviewed the 5 in 1 tasty baker and really enjoyed it.  When they contacted me again and asked if I would like to review a Hannah Montana sandwich maker, I wasn’t sure what to say.  We were in desperate need of a new sandwich maker, but what would my husband think of Hannah Montana?

When the sandwich maker arrived it was in a pink box with the Disney star plastered across the front.  However, once I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised that the sandwich maker was simply white with pink clasps, Hannah Montana was not on the maker at all.

The sandwich maker comes with two different sets of plates.  One set is “Hannah Montana”  and the other is a grill/panini plate – this was super good news.  My husband could enjoy sandwiches without feeling like it was make on a teenaged sandwich maker.  The Hannah Montana plates aren’t even super “girly” it’s just some music notes and the words “Pop Star”.

The plates are so easy to change as will.  It’s simple to go from panini press to the classic style sandwich maker.  There is a little button that unhooks the plates and if you want to put a new plate in, just snap it in place.  When my kit arrived, one of the plates was missing a little clip that allows the plate to click in place.  I let the company know as soon as possible, sent them a little picture (because sometimes those things are hard to explain) and within a week I had the piece I needed.  The sandwich maker worked without the clip, however the plate easily came out.

The Hannah Montana Pop Art Sandwich maker is super simple to use.  Just plug it in, and wait for the red/orange light to turn green and your sandwich is done.  I would suggest putting butter on both sides of your sandwich so it doesn’t burn.

The Sandwich maker and plates are easy to clean because each of the plates are completely removable.  If you over load your sandwich with cheese, some might end up on the machine itself – just make sure to clean it off as soon as possible.  If you leave it on too long and make another sandwich, it’s harder to come off.  I’m sure you all know what I am talking about – we’ve all done this with a sandwich maker before.

Overall, I am very happy with the Hannah Montana Sandwich maker.  If you are not a Miley fan – not to worry, Hannah Montana isn’t plastered all over, in fact other than the box, you wouldn’t even know that it’s all about Hannah Montana.

If you have a true Hannah Montana fan in your home, they will be very happy to know that they are using a “special” sandwich maker.  The rest of us will just be happy to have a nice warm ham and cheese sandwich.
