This Priceless Gift Is More Than A Teddy Bear

This Priceless Gift Is More Than A Teddy Bear

Four-year-old Jordan was an avid doll collector like many other kids her age, but mom and Born Just Right blogger Jen Lee Reeves remembers that her daughter's first shopping experience was bittersweet. Even though little Jordan picked out a doll with the exact same color hair and eyes as her, she was devastated that all the dollies had two hands and she only had one. That started mom and Jordan wondering... do limb-different dolls exist for limb-loss and limb-difference children? Since the two started petitioning toymakers to create more inclusive toys they've faced an uphill battle, but fast forward to today and Jen's surprising a much older Jordan with a special present—her very own Vermont Teddy Bear with a shortened left arm! We couldn't be happier that the Vermont Teddy Bear Company have fully embraced limb-difference and made it a permanent customization option on all their bears. Best yet, 20 percent of every "Limb Loss & Limb Difference Bear" sold goes to support the Amputee Coalition. View Now

Gayle On Film: Ant-Man And The Wasp

Gayle On Film: Ant-Man And The Wasp

As far as sequels go, so far this summer "The Incredibles 2" seemed to get it just right ahead of "Deadpool 2" and "Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom" — both fun, but not stellar. Then along came "Ant-Man and The Wasp." In the Marvel universe, there are a plethora of heroes vying for favorite status, and there is something more approachable and likable about Paul Rudd and this film. Simply, he's an everyman. He's THAT guy that everyone would love to have as a co-worker or buddy, and in this role, as a divorced dad on house arrest, audiences will again feel an affection for this ex-con. His Robin Hood vibes, coupled with the other ex-cons and business partners (Michael Peña, T.I. Harris, and David Dastmalchian), provide constant comic relief throughout. Homage must be given to "The Wasp" (Evangeline Lilly). She can fight and hold her own, sometimes better than Rudd, but their chemistry is sweet and overdone as oft is the case in such films. It is just as much her story, but Rudd does get the better jokes.  View Now
