Argh! Ahoy Mateys!

pirate's booty eye patch

Evan is kind of a big fan of pirates. “Kind of” might be an understatement – he is obsessed with pirates. It might be a universal boy stage, or it might be thanks to Jake, Cubby and Izzy on Disney Jr. So you can pretty much imagine how excited he was when he found this on the kitchen counter:

That is our very favorite snack – Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar – combined with our very favorite show – Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

The Limited Edition Jake and the Never Land Pirates multipack features Pirate’s Booty’s best-selling product – Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar.  The pack also features Jake and the Never Land Pirates characters and games to keep the crew engaged during snack time.  The little treasures half-ounce size of Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar is just 65-calories and is the perfect portion for the lunchbox or when on-the-go.

Our treasure chest came with some pirate swag too – an eye patch, some temporary tattoos and a super cool foam sword, perfect for all your toddler swashbuckling needs. The kids loved all of it. But the biggest hit was definitely the booty.

Well, the pirate’s booty AND the eyepatch:

I was going to send the adorable little single-serving bags to Evan’s school for his special helper day (which means he brings snack) but they’re…mostly gone. The kids ate the first 12 within 24 hours. OK, maybe I helped a little. But it’s Pirate’s Booty! It’s so delicious!

Do you want to win your own treasure chest of new limited edition Jake and the Never Land Pirates Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar snacks? Plus the other fun swag? Of course you do!

Vote for the Worst Kids Show On Television! Round 1: Disney Jr

worst kids shows on television

It’s March, which means everything is all March Madness ALL THE TIME. Except in my house, because if there’s anything I hate more than basketball it’s teams I’ve never heard of playing basketball. I fully embrace that this might make me un-American, but to try to get myself into the spirit of competition Amy and I have created our own version of March Madness: Which TV show aimed at our preschoolers is the absolute WORST kids show on television? Can anything beat Dora’s screaming? Is Caillou the clear champion? Or can the Wonderpets come from behind to prove once and for all that they are sewious?

The game: we made “divisions” based on four channels (Nick Jr, Disney Jr, Hub and Sprout/PBS) and tried to keep it sort of limited to shows aimed at preschoolers, just to narrow it down.  We will each host two channels and voting will narrow things down to a final four, one from each channel, which will narrow down to an ultimate showdown deciding the worst preschool show on television. The bracket can be viewed here.

I’m hosting Disney Jr & Sprout/PBS and Amy  has Nick Jr & Hub.

Today’s face-offs are for Disney Jr! Let’s go!
