Disney's Mary Poppins Returns Comes to Theaters Dec. 19th #DisneySMMC #MaryPoppinsReturns

10/30/18
Disney's Mary Poppins Returns


The holiday season will be coming before we know it.  Do you have a family tradition of seeing a holiday film?  Our family is very excited about Disney's Mary Poppins Returns coming to theaters December 19th!    It's sure to be a fun movie with an amazing cast to see right before Christmas.  

In Disney’s MARY POPPINS RETURNS, an all-new original musical and sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family find the joy and wonder missing in their lives following a personal loss. Emily Blunt stars as the practically-perfect nanny with unique magical skills who can turn any ordinary task into an unforgettable, fantastic adventure and Lin-Manuel Miranda plays her friend Jack, an optimistic street lamplighter who helps bring light—and life—to the streets of London.



MARY POPPINS RETURNS is directed by Rob Marshall. The screenplay is by David Magee and the screen story is by Magee & Rob Marshall & John DeLuca based upon the Mary Poppins Stories by PL Travers. 

The producers are John DeLuca, p.g.a., Rob Marshall, p.g.a. and Marc Platt, p.g.a. with Callum McDougall serving as executive producer. The music score is by Marc Shaiman and the film features all new original songs with music by Shaiman and lyrics by Scott Wittman and Shaiman. 

The film also stars Ben Whishaw as Michael Banks; Emily Mortimer as Jane Banks; Julie Walters as the Banks’ housekeeper Ellen; Pixie Davies, Nathanael Saleh and introducing Joel Dawson as the Banks’ children, with Colin Firth as Fidelity Fiduciary Bank’s William Weatherall Wilkins; and Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric cousin, Topsy. Angela Lansbury appears as the Balloon Lady, a treasured character from the PL Travers books and Dick Van Dyke is Mr. Dawes, Jr., the retired chairman of the bank now run by Firth’s character.





MARY POPPINS RETURNS arrives in theatres everywhere on December 19th!

Gululu $25 Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway

It's almost Halloween, will you be trick or treating?  Trick-or-Treating is one of our favorite family traditions.  Make sure your kids are hydrated so they won't feel tired and sluggish walking around the neighborhood to get candy.

Did you Know?

A child’s health is every parent’s top priority, but 50% of kids today are not drinking enough water for optimal brain and body function. When left to their own devices, most kids choose sugary sodas and juices. We all know that high sugar consumption is linked to diabetes and obesity. Moreover, a recent Harvard study indicates that dehydration has been linked to impaired concentration, cognition, and physical activity. Gululu solves this problem. Your kid will love guiding their virtual pet through the Gululu Universe by drinking water, and parents will love that they are staying healthy doing so.

What is Gululu?
Gululu is an interactive water bottle that keeps children hydrated while allowing their parents to monitor daily water-drinking progress through a smartphone app. Gululu provides a technology-enabled solution with a learning-through-play mechanism to address issues pertaining to children’s wellbeing. Gululu was developed by Bowhead Technology.

The water bottle tracks hydration and encourages the child to drink with the help of an educational pet-growing game. As kids consume more water from their Gululu bottle, their virtual pet grows and unlocks new worlds and adventures at the “Gululu Universe.” Gululu also has an automatic water tracker software and content update system that continuously rolls out new features to keep children engaged.

CODE: 30hydrationfun

Enter to Win a $25 Amazon Gift Card from Gululu!
Gululu Features:
  • Monitor children's daily water-drinking progress through your smartphone
  • Grow and evolve with a virtual ‘tamagotchi-like’ virtual pet
  • Experience continuous content updates through an automatic software update system to keep children engaged
  • Utilize “Do Not Disturb” and “Bedtime” modes
  • Learn-Through-Play, embark on a journey of health, rewards, and adventures within the “Gululu universe”
  • Connect with friends by syncing to nearby bottles and stay connected with the cloud-based app. Durable, safe, and waterproof with a modular design and easy-to-clean spout that makes maintenance simple BPA-free
What we love most about Gululu is they are always updating and improving the Gululu Universe with monthly themes! Every couple of weeks, Gululu introduces additional features, such as new online campaigns, drinking animations, pet accessories, sound effects, and more. A fourth virtual pet, (Donny), was released at the end of March. More characters are expected to be added soon to expand the population of the “Gululu universe.” These exciting additions are all automatically updated into the bottle through the cloud.

Back to School Must-Haves! Gululu Interactive Water Bottle with Hydration Tracking App for Parents! This great water bottle even has school-time settings!


Gululu's Greater Purpose: 


Gululu's mission and contribution is to help children all over the world stay healthy and hydrated! To advance their goal, for every Gululu bottle purchased, a child in a developing country will be provided with clean drinking water! This initiative was created through a partnership with Generosity.org, a humanitarian organization that provides sustainable solutions to the global water crisis, one community at a time. Joining forces with Generosity.org has allowed Gululu to offer programs focused on educating kids on social responsibility and initiate water-well projects for developing countries.

Want to know more? Gululu has been featured in leading global media publications in over 20 countries. Among them are TechCrunch, Yahoo, Vogue, and Forbes that declared Gululu as a “Top 5 best kids’ gadgets.”
