So this past week Pixar invited about 25 “Mommy Bloggers” and handful of Pixar bloggers from all over the states to the Monsters University Blogger Press Event in California. Where they got to view footage from Monsters University and see the entire short film The Blue Umbrella. Also the group of bloggers get to spend the day touring the Walt Disney Family Museum. Now I am not here to rant but seriously I looked up a lot of these bloggers that have only been blogging for a year or so with less than 100 post on Pixar and Disney. And I sit here and wonder why after almost 6 years of blogging with 594 post on Disney and 140 post on Pixar all give or take a post I was not invited to this event or another Disney event in general. I am bit sad about this and to top it off even when Disney and Pixar attended the New York Toy Fair in my own city and hitting up their NY merchandise contact I wasn’t even invited to come. I have been a die-hard Disney/Pixar writer for quite sometime now… is my SEO that bad and I am just getting flooded out by all these new bloggers? I just don’t know. Well I hope all my readers appreciate my blogging. The photo above is a gift the bloggers got to promote Pixar’s Blue Umbrella which in fact it is a blue umbrella. Rainy days like this just makes you think. Monsters University opens in theaters June 21, 2013.

One of my highlights at the 2013 New York Toy Fair is always to see the lovely ladies of the Madame Alexander booth. I have to admit I have never been much of a doll person, I have had a few collectables here and there, though I find myself giving them to someone I know who would really appreciate the articulation collectable dolls have. Regardless I always make a point to come visit Madame Alexander to see what wonderfully delightful doll collaborations that are in store for the upcoming year. Obviously my eyes always dart to the Disney collectables and this year MA surprised me with the 2013 collection which included 10” Tinker Bell and her sister Periwinkle, an 8” Pinocchio (in Pleasure Island) and 10“ Disney princesses, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, and a 8” Christopher Robin and Classic Winnie The Pooh, all dolls are fully articulated.
Plus Madame Alexander was pleased to show off their 10” Cissette dolls fully articulated, based on characters from the new Disney movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, featuring main characters Oz (Oscar Diggs), Glinda, Theodora and Evanora, all perfectly crafted in costumes reflecting their roles. It also happens to be the 75th Anniversary of the classic Wizard Oz movie.

Hey everyone I am here LIVE covering the 110th New York Toy Fair with my photographer. We had a rough start this morning since we had to be up super early, but it all paid off once we got to the LEGO Press Event.
