The Disney "Tsum Tsums" Are Here!

Say hello to a whole new stackable world of cute from Disney Store: the Disney Tsum Tsum plush toys are here! These super popular toys, based on the endlessly playable, ridiculously adorable Disney Tsum Tsum mobile game (available on Google Play and App Store) have been a huge hit in Japan, and now they’ve made their way overseas so we can all share in the cuteness!

“Tsum Tsum” is Japanese for “stack stack” and the game and toys take their names from the ancient Zen art of stacking stones – and stacking just happens to be the favorite thing Disney Tsums love to do! There are so many Tsums to choose from and make a perfect cuddly plush toy for your little one. Planning a Disney-themed nursery? These little stackable plush toys are a must to add a dash of Disney cuteness to your little one’s nursery! The ideas are endless for baby with Disney Tsums: baby’s first stuffed toy, nursery decorations, an adorable, simple baby shower gift or even party favors for baby’s first birthday party!

Let’s take a look at these kawaii (Japanese for “super cute”) creations!

Judah's First Camping Trip!

My husband and I love to go camping. Confession: I didn’t really go tent camping out in the woods until my mid-twenties! But I loved it so much that we actually registered at REI as one of our wedding registries when we got married. Ever since we wanted to have kids, we’ve always been excited about the idea of taking our child camping with us. Well, the wait has ended and Judah has survived his first camping trip!

Here are all the highlights from our fabulous July 4th camping weekend with friends.

From the Circus to the Sea: A Fun Day Out With Judah!

Now that I’ve established a pretty good routine with my 1-year-old with daycare two half-days a week, the rest of the week, I get to just relax and be mom with my son. With gorgeous summer weather, there’s been a lot of great, fun free activities in the area that we try to take advantage of when we can. A couple of weeks ago, we started our day with a free public show of Cirque due Soleil performers followed by a free story time at the Salem Willows Carousel and Park, hosted by the Lappin Foundation and the PJ Library. Judah even got to ride the carousel for free, too!

We had a wonderful day together and it was great to just hang out and have some good old-fashioned fun. Here’s our Disney Story recapping our fantastic day together!
