The kids are going back to school and Fall is just around the corner.  Fall decorating is so much fun!  I love the colors of fall.  Crisp yellow, red, orange and brown colors can fit into any decorating theme.

Even though it is hot outside, we can imagine the cool crisp air of Autumn.

We can help you welcome Fall with some great decorating items.  So let's get started.  You will surely find something you love.

I love this Tree Falls Fountain!  Water cascades down three levels creating the sound of a peaceful brook.  Led lights on each level adds a beautiful effect at night.  The perfect thing to turn your yard or garden into an oasis.

Here comes the Boo Choo Choo!  This adorable pumpkin train is loaded with ghosts and goblins.  They are making their way to your mantel to delight your guests!

Celebrate the Fourth of July with Disney!

By Penny Clift

Today I was thinking about what would be the perfect gift to celebrate the Fourth of July.  Of  
course all the traditional things came to mind, flags and anything red, white and blue.  There  
are all manner of things decorated with flags.  From t­-shirts to garden statues, you can always find a patriotic choice.   
Then I thought what is more American than Disney?  I still remember parking myself in front of  the television every Sunday night eagerly awaiting The Wonderful World of Disney.  Tinker Bell flying across the screen to light up the Disney castle with her pixie wand.   The audience  was treated to a magical story every Sunday.  It might be a cartoon or it might be a  
heartwarming story, but it was always entertaining.    
In those days, Disney tried to inspire children and teach them a few things along the way.  We  learned that bullies get their comeuppance in the end, that perseverance pays off, that love  always trumps hate and good always wins out in the end.  Maybe it wasn’t always the reality  of the world, but it shaped a generation of kids.  It gave us hope and optimism.   
If you know someone who grew up in that age, I am betting that a Disney gift would warm  
their heart and stir their memories.  It could also be a gift of love and optimism for a young  
Disney fan.    
I have found some Disney collectibles that would make the perfect gift.  If you have summer  
birthdays coming up take a look!

Want to Stimulate Your Child's Imagination? Try a Puppet

By Penny Clift

Summer is here and that means the kids are home. Entertaining them all summer can be challenging. Instead of letting them play video games all day how about giving them something that will stimulate their imagination! I love these realistic puppets from Folkmanis. They are so lifelike it is amazing! Kids can spend hours in imaginative play. They can put on a puppet show or interact with their friends. These furry friends are ready to play! We will help you choose just the right puppet for your child! Let's look at some of my favorites.

I absolutely love this English Sheepdog.  He can wag his tail, scratch his fleas, tilt his head and sniff your friends.  You can make your friends believe he is real!  Watch the video to see him in action. Get him here!

If a sheepdog isn't your cup of tea, how about this Airedale Terrier.  His stunning marks and folded ears give him an amazing realism.  Let him be the star of your dog show.

Say you aren't a dog person?  Well there is a puppet for cat lovers too!  This Ragdoll cat is so realistic it is hard to tell him from the real thing.  Beautiful markings.  Great for snuggling. 

If you  prefer the call of the wild, there are some great puppets for you.  One of our favorites is the Arctic Fox.  This sweet faced, snowy white trickster will melt your heart!  

These are just a few of the great puppet choices.  I have seen for myself how much children love these puppets.  Try one for your child and watch their imagination come alive.   Happy puppeteering!
