It seems like shopping for the holiday season is getting harder and harder. Finding a unique gift that can not only be enjoyed by all, but also has some staying power, can be difficult – but not impossible! Good news. Disney Infinity 3.0 is no flash-in-the-pan!
It’s our new favourite thing now that the tech timeout has finished….. Who doesn’t love Disney Interactive? Engaging and interactive entertainment mixed with our favourite characters that are portable on mobile. So fun. And now Disney Interactive is bringing DuckTales to your phone in the new free-to-play game “DuckTales: Scrooge’s Loot”. Players join Uncle Scrooge and Launchpad to retrieve Scrooge McDuck’s fortune from the villainous Beagle Boys. You can play in two different modes –multiplayer battle mode where players can team up with Facebook or find new allies and the single player campaign where they go on adventures.
If your kids are living with Type 1 diabetes, you’ve got a few extra challenges. We’re very excited about a Disney’s New Diabetes Resource from one of our favourite Disney sites. Disney Interactive has partnered with Lilly Diabetes to launch an online destination dedicated to help families affected by type 1 diabetes on Disney’s family lifestyle site Spoonful.com. Combining Lilly’s knowledge of diabetes with Disney’s robust parenting network has created a unique and powerful diabetes resource.
Through a mix of articles, videos and advice, site contributors (which include dietitians, psychologists, nurses and everyday families) cover a variety of topics all designed to help families manage type 1 diabetes in everyday situations, such as:
· Routines for families that manage type 1 diabetes while still letting kids be kids
· Important info on how to pack for vacations, sleepovers and other outings
· Talking tips about type 1 diabetes to share with friends, teachers and coaches
One of our favourite sections contains quotes from mothers about how they deal with everyday challenges such as sibling rivalry, glucose checks and keeping every day fun. There are even printables for the babysitter and great ways to care for the caregivers! Disney’s New Diabetes Resource is a great addition to the Spoonful roster.
