Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition

One of my absolute favorite movies of all time, second to Alice in Wonderland, is the timeless classic Mary Poppins. So when I heard that the Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Edition would be coming out on Blu ray combo pack I knew I needed to pick it up as soon as it came out.

But luckily it was mailed right to my door! We love this movie so much that we’ve seen the musical, watched the VHS so many times it’s worn through, and finally now own it on Blu ray so that I can share the magic with my kids.

They’ve surprised me by loving it as much as I do! And are now constantly checking my bag to see if I can pull cool things out of it just like Mary does. [Read more…]
