My son and even my husband was beyond excited to check out all the awesome items that came for our viewing party!  The Light Saber was one of the first items to get un-packaged along with the Nerf Guns!!  My son has been reading the Star Wars Absolutely Everything You Need to Know a lot too!  R2D2 Bop-It has ended up in our car for a fun activity when we are on the road.  We have had several kids in the car and that has been their favorite toy to play with!

The Nerf guns by far is my husbands favorite item in the box.  He and my son have had hours of fun!  Nerf items never disappoint us and are fun for all!

Disclosure: These items were given to me free of charge for my honest opinion.  These opinions are my own.  Thanks to Disney and Hasbro for the items.

THEATRICAL SHORT – Sanjay’s Super Team – Sanjay loves the world of cartoons and comics, while his father tries to draw him into his Hindu traditions. Reluctance quickly turns into awe-inspiring adventure as the boy embarks on an amazing journey, returning with a new perspective they can both embrace.

 TRUE LIES ABOUT DINOSAURS – We know – it’s preposterous to think Apatosaurs spoke English. Learn more about what separates the fictional dinosaurs of “The Good Dinosaur“ from what scientists know about real dinosaurs.

 RECYCLOSAURUS – Pixar takes creative competition seriously. Maybe a little too seriously. Watch as “The Good Dinosaur” crew competes to see which department can create the best dinosaur ever…using only discarded items from the studio’s “free table.”

 THE FILMMAKERS’ JOURNEY – Finding your way from an idea to a film takes a lot of exploration. Director Peter Sohn and his fellow filmmakers talk about the challenging, inspiring, and unexpectedly emotional experience of making “The Good Dinosaur.”

 EVERY PART OF THE DINOSAUR – The filmmakers talk about the special animation challenges of “The Good Dinosaur” – including figuring out how to animate a dinosaur who’s really a boy, and a boy who’s got the spirit of a dog.

 FOLLOWING THE T-REX TRAIL – Follow the filmmakers as they travel to a working cattle ranch and meet the McKays, a close-knit family whose work ethic, generosity, and stories inspired the T-Rex ranchers of the film.

 COMMENTARY – Commentary from director Peter Sohn, story supervisor Kelsey Mann, supervising animator Mike Venturini, director of photography/lighting Sharon Calahan, and supervising technical director Sanjay Bakshi.

DINO BITES – Montage of original animated pieces produced to promote “The Good Dinosaur.”

HIDE AND SEEK – A short animated clip produced to promote “The Good Dinosaur.”


  • The Attack – An idyllic introduction to the family farm is cut short when a savage predator attacks the newborn Arlo. With an introduction by Director Peter Sohn.
  • Building the Silo – An admiring Arlo is thrilled to follow along as his father builds a silo for the family farm. With an introduction by Director Peter Sohn.

You may have heard from a family member or a friend that nothing in the world is really free and with most retail chains that is the truth. Though it is important to note that throughout the year companies may offer various ways that you can get free gifts entirely for free.

Making Minimum Purchases

Companies love to spoil their loyal customers, especially the people that spend a lot of money at one time at their store. If there are any free gifts to be received from different companies they will generally be as a reward for making a minimum purchase at their store. For example, getting a free cosmetics bag when you buy at least $100 worth of makeup. The minimum purchase requirements will differ depending on the products that they have available as some sites may have $25 as the purchase amount and others may have upwards of $750.

Rewards Programs

When you are a frequent customer at a particular store, you are obviously giving that company a lot of money and in order to make sure that you stay loyal to their products and/or services, they are willing to offer benefits. Signing up for rewards programs from all of your favorite stores is a great way to make sure that you get the most out of every order that you make. Generally you’ll collect points for each order and in most cases 1 point is equivalent to $1. After these points accumulate you may be able to redeem them for free gifts. There are also times when companies will simply give their members free gifts for signing up for their rewards programs, especially if there is a membership fee.

Finding the Right Products

Even though it may not be an additional “gift” that you’ll get for free, finding products that are included in buy one, get one offers is another great way to make sure that you get free products with every purchase. For example, if you find a shirt that is regularly priced you may want to consider opting for the shirt that gives you the ability to get a second one for free instead so you’re only paying for one. This method of getting free gifts depends on the promotions that the store is currently offering and if they have an array of buy one, get one products available.
