Long Way North-US/CAN-ends Feb.4/17

Today we have a different kind of dvd for you all. A very nice movie for kids and adults alike. Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Download.
From the award-winning minds that brought us Ernest & Celestine, Song of the Sea, The Secret of Kells and The Painting.

"This French-Danish work offers all you'd want in a young adventure- action, danger, a journey, a coming-of-age, heartwarming and heartbreaking moments, handsome animation and a strong statement of girl power." Mike Hale, New York Times Art & Leisure

Get ready to embark on an awe-inspiring journey to the North Pole in the visually exquisite animated feature, Long Way North.

Set in the late 19th century Saint Petersburg. Sacha, a young girl from the Russian aristocracy, dreams of the Great North and anguishes over the fate of her grandfather, Oloukine, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer who has yet to return from his latest expedition to conquer the North Pole.

Sacha has always been fascinated by the adventurous life of her grandfather and has the same calling as Oloukine to be an explorer. But Sacha's parents, who already made arrangements for her marriage, strongly disapprove of the idea to say the least. Defying her destiny, Sacha flees her home and launches an adventure-filled quest toward the Great North in search of Oloukine and his ship.

Long Way North features an exceptional English voice cast of Chloe Dunn, Vivienne Vermes, Peter Hudson, Antony Hickling, Tom Perkins, Geoffrey Greenhill, Claire Harrison-Bullett, Bibi Jacob, Martin Lewis, Tom Morton, Leslie Clack, Kester Lovelace and Damian Corcoran.

Miraculous-Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir-US/CAN-Ends Feb. 2/17

Marinette and Adrien, two seemingly normal kids live what appears to be an ordinary teen life in Paris with daily encounters that create amusing circumstances in school with friends, family and even with strangers. But when the evil Hawk Moth threatens their beloved city of Paris, they transform into the superheroes Ladybug and Cat Noir using super powers gained with the help of their magical friends. Hawk Moth is using his evil energy to transform normal people into super villains, so our two heroes need to use all their skills to defeat him.

Becoming Ladybug is a complicated process. First, Marinette needs a "Kwami," which is a tiny magical assistant (called Tikki). She also needs a "Miraculous," which is a magical accessory (her special pair of earrings.) Tikki uses the Miraculous to transform Marinette, but her Ladybug super powers only work for a limited time!

Its a good thing that she gets a little help from her superhero partner, Cat Noir even though she insists she doesn't need him. If only she knew Cat Noir's true identity- her school crush, Adrien! It will take a lot- friendship, teamwork and skill- to outwit Hawk Moth. Will Ladybug and Cat Noir be able to balance their double lives and keep Paris safe? Will they ever find out each other's true identity? Until then- there is a whole city of baddies to defeat...SPOTS ON, CLAWS OUT!

The other two colors I received are these:
They are such pretty colors. They really knit up nice and the yarn feels so soft once its knitted. Noro Kureyon is one of their higher end, "indie" yarns known for its artistic colours and hand production process. It's a hand-dyed, 100% wool that comes in variegated colours that self-stripe as you knit. A wide range of accessories and garments can be knit with this yarn.
You can see all the colors this company offers here:
Noro Yarn is named after its designer and founder, Eisaku Noro, the company is known for its artistic approach to creating yarn and colour compositions. Noro prides itself in doing as much production as possible by hand in order to preserve the natural characteristic of the fibre.

Noro yarns are now known globally and they continue to impress knitters with their selection of raw materials, production, and constant care.

Need a last minute gift or stocking stuffer?

Are you still wondering what to get that special little one on your list, something unique for Christmas? Well here is one idea for you. Sputtens are the greatest for kids who like to spend time out in the snow. Here we have Penny and Bella and Razz and Lou
along with Ruby and Lioness and Sammy and Bailey.
Now aren't these the cutest you have seen? They have a tube sock like design which is perfect for covering small hands all the way up to the elbow so they cannot be pulled off, fall off, or fill with snow. Sputtens are extremely warm, water resistant and durable. The majority of the mitten is made with 200 weight fleece for warm and soft protection. The inside of the palm and fingers utilize a powerful waterproof shield to protect snow grabbing hands. These Sputtens come in
SMALL: Infants 3-24 months (measure 7 in. from fingertips to elbow)
MEDIUM: Toddlers 2-4 years old (measure 10 in. from fingertips to elbow)
LARGE: Young kids 4 -10 years old (measure 13 in. from fingertips to elbow)
So if you are still looking for a stocking stuffer maybe you can drop by and order a pair or two. They are priced just right at $19.99 a pair. I know the kids will love them. So hop on over and get your order in. Merry Christmas to everyone.
