Did you know that July is National Family Reunion month? I had no clue. I don’t think I have ever even been to a family reunion. There is an opportunity to win big with an all-new national “Pajanimals’ Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes” with Amtrak! I have always wanted to travel by train! I think it would be a great way to see the country while traveling with the family. When traveling by train you can actually spend quality time with your children!
You ca get some vacation suggestions and discounts for family travel from Amtrak. They also offer the Kids Depot webpage. Here you will find games, activities and downloads on topics like trains, geography, the environment, memory-building, problem-solving and much more. Your kids can use the site to even make and send their own e-cards while aboard the train.
The Jim Henson Company is partnering with Amtrak this July for a special Pajanimals’ Pack Your Pajamas Sweepstakes. One Grand Prize of four round-trip coach tickets on Amtrak, a Flip video camera and a 4-piece large plush set of Pajanimals from Tomy. Five First Prize winners will receive HeysUSA Amtrak luggage and a Pajanimals Adventure Game from Briarpatch and 10 Second Prize winners will receive an Amtrak branded hoodie and the “Pajanimals Playdate” DVD from NCircle Entertainment. The sweepstakes ends July 31, 2013!
The new “Pajanimals Pajama Party!” DVD is now available at www.ncircleentertainment.com and Amazon.com. (SRP: $9.99)
Pajanimals love to celebrate birthdays, sing songs and enjoy pajama dance parties with friends. You and your pre-schoolers can join Cowbella, Apollo, Sweet Pea Sue and Squacky as they travel to Birthday Land to learn the true importance of why birthdays are so special! Then it’s time to enjoy a pajama dance party and sing our favorite songs! Join the Pajanimals on these fun adventures before it’s time for bedtime in “Pajanimals Pajama Party!”
The stories featured in the DVD encourage children to learn important social and emotional lessons such as how to share with friends, overcoming shyness and telling the truth. Perfect themes for family reunions, parties and sleepovers with cousins.
And you can celebrate your family reunion with the new Pajanimals’ party products from Birthdayexpress.com. As you may know, The Jim Henson Company partnered with BirthdayExpress.com, the authority on kids’ party planning and supplies, on the creation of a new line of Pajanimals-themed disposable party products, including tableware, personalized banners and wall décor, party favors, piñatas, cupcake wrappers and boxes, and even a t-shirt (costs vary).
These colorful and entertaining party products feature the lovable Pajanimals characters and can be used for your child’s Pajanimals-themed Pajama Party, family reunion, birthday party, or even just a fun, backyard BBQ. The Pajanimals’ party products are now available at www.birthdayexpress.com!
And if your Pajanimals fan misses an episode of Pajanimals while on vacation, Comcast is offering a special Pajanimals On Demand option the week of July 22 as part of its Summer of Kids Video On Demand (VOD) promotion. Every episode of Pajanimals will be available on demand and online to Comcast subscribers. The Summer of Kids promotion is designed to showcase the XFINITY TV library of kids content across platforms including traditional video on demand and the online platform at Xfinity.net. Additionally the campaign aims to introduce new portability features, such as live streaming and download capabilities through the Xfinity app.
Pajanimals currently airs daily on Sprout, the 24-hour preschool channel parents and kids share together, and on Saturday mornings on NBC Kids. The series follows the adventures of four cuddly musical puppets — Sweet Pea Sue, Squacky, Cowbella and Apollo. These Journeys celebrate imagination and tackle typical toddler issues such as the fear of the first day of school, making new friends and learning how to share. The Pajanimals end their day of play with a relaxing return to their cozy bedroom and familiar night time routines, including bathing, brushing teeth and story time, to develop a feeling of safety and structure.
Pajanimals fans can also visit the www.sproutonline.com website to play the latest Pajanimals Birthday Party Game for kids.
One Not So Average Mama reader will win a copy of “Pajanimals Pajama Party!” on DVD!
No compensation was received. I chose to host this giveaway as a treat to my readers.
This Giveaway will end on July 26th, 2013!
