St. Louis Magic with Mickey and Minnie!

DISNEY LIVEExperience the awesome thrill of magic with your little ones at Disney Live! Mickey and Minnie’s Doorway to Magic Presented by Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt. Earlier this afternoon we headed back downtown for another awesome event. This time it wasn’t at night but during the day. So it was just a little different than our previous adventures downtown. Also, we headed to the Chaifetz arena this time.

Once we picked up our tickets and found our seats we grabbed a few snacks before the show began. This time my wife and I brought along my other niece to enjoy the show with my daughter Abby. We had a little bit of an idea of what we were going to be seeing based on my previous post, but I was amazed with all of the awesome magic performed on stage. The crowd cheered on Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy and helped say the magic words that took us to different parts of the Disney universe. We first were sent to see Cinderella and her fairy godmother. There were songs, dancing, and more magic. I think everyone’s favorite part had to be Buzz Lightyear’s performance. He danced around the lazers and made them go every which way. The kids were going crazy during it. Then of course Jesse and Woody came out to do some jump roping.

IMG_3027 The show itself seemed to be around an hour and a half or a just a little longer. There were the same souvenirs that you would see at most Disney Live events. I am still not a big fan of the prices on some of these items. But we still try to get something that is at least unique to the event that probably isn’t sold anywhere else. So we grabbed some cotton candy with a very cool sorcerers hat  and the girls also each got a souvenir Tangled goblet filled with a sno-cone.

IMG_3039Unfortunately, the show is only one day only, TODAY! But there are still tickets available for the final showings this evening. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here, and are priced as follows.

My Toilet Has Never Been Brighter!

12662512_10201419691052404_1805035464188785961_nI received an interesting email a few weeks ago. It was from a company that wanted to send me a sample product to try out and keep. I could write about it if I wanted to but it wasn’t necessary . Well I got the item last weekend and I have been trying it out over the past week with some exciting results.

What is it you ask? Well I won’t lie, it is kind of a strange product. The item is called the Illumibowl. Essentially it is a motion activated LED light that you place in your toilet so you can see in the dark. No more waking up in the middle of the night only to be blinded by the bathroom lights. Or better yet you’re not tripping over anything or missing your target. The idea is a kind of funny, a light that can display a range of colors that you put in your toilet so you can see at night. It has novelty written all over it, but let me tell you it is actually really useful.

Once you get past the novelty of the product you begin to realize that this little device is actually helpful. I got mine installed easy enough and set the color to something that matches our decor (red). The light illuminated the toilet as well as a good portion of the bathroom. The first night it was already in use. I work up around 2 AM and used the bathroom, once I entered the motion detection kicked in and the bowl began to glow red. I could see and it wasn’t straining my eyes with bright light.

The Illumibowl is a fantastic idea and one that I am surprised isn’t built right into new toilets. The ability to change the colors is really cool too. So if a red or yellow is too bright for your eyes you still have plenty of colors to check out. All in all the Illumibowl is an awesome little device that can definitely help out in more ways than just one. Plus it is relatively cheap so it won’t break the bank. Check them out on their official website

I did take some pictures of the Illumibowl in action but my wife vetoed the pictures. She gets that power when it comes to showing off pictures of our toilet. But take my word for it or check out Illumibowl on Instagram. They have plenty of examples that look pretty much identical to our setup.

Illumibowl provided St. Louis Dad with this product as compensation in exchange for an honest review. Please visit for more awesome products that can help make your life better!
