Toy Story 4_Zak Designs Always has the Best Characters

Not since Oscar the Grouch, have we fallen in love with a character who so much loves the trash. If you haven't seen Toy Story 4, you may not know what I mean. The fastest way to remedy that is to go see the movie!! My youngest and I went this weekend, and yes, he turned to me a couple of times during the show to laugh because he suspected I was crying. He knows I am a notorious crier at cartoons. So true. So weird perhaps? So me. :)



To help us celebrate the release of the new movie, we're buying tickets for the grand (my oldest granddaughter), two of my nieces, and one nephew, all of whom are in the same age range. It is going to be a surprise trip, and one that will be full of mesmerized big screen faces (the kids intently watching the movie), giggles and gasps. One or all of them will ask to use the restroom at an important part, but that's okay, because I've already seen the movie with my son. ;) By the end, I'll probably be the only one crying, but that's okay, I'm used to that too, lol.

We'll come back to my place for some play time and lunch. I'll be serving their food on these great items from Zak! The sandwich container you see in the photo above is by far and away my favorite because I use these containers for so much more than sandwiches. We put raisins, nut mixes, trail mixes, veggies and even cookies in them and tote them along to the park, the waterfront, etc. They are the perfect size for snacks, and way more sturdy than plastic bags. Of course, you can use them for packing sandwiches in your lunch (we do that too). They are worth their weight in gold because the sturdy plastic container keeps bread plump and fresh (no more smooshed sammys by the time you get to the lunch table).


My son is loving the Toy Story 4 stainless steel tumbler that keeps his water ice cold, just the way he likes it, especially in this heat. We know from past experience that Zak makes a reliable water bottle, and this one is no exception with its one-hand operation lid, retractable straw and carry loop. It also fits perfectly in a car seat or stroller cup holder. Every thoughtfulness was put into this tumbler, in terms of what kids want and do with their beverage carriers. Now, I've called it a water bottle, but you can put any kind of beverage in here that you conveniently want to carry with you. When kids are outside playing this time of year, it's HOT, and having that ice cold refreshing drink by their side can make all the difference in the world. It's great for using inside of the house too, because it's spill-proof and again, keeps your beverage chilly cold. Kids will love the characters, and will quickly want to make this item their very own. 


My granddaughter is going to be all about the new characters in the movie, so when lunch is over, I will pack this plate, bowl and plastic tumbler set up for her to take home. She gets a kick out of cute dinnerwear and her parents will like that it's melamine (except the glass which is plastic), so it's durable and easy to care for and store. The plastic cup holds 9oz., the bowl holds 8 oz. and the plate is 5.5" around. These items are dishwasher safe, but you don't want to use them in the microwave. As with all things from Zak Designs, they are also 100%-BPA-Free.


For our little after-movie soiree, I'll serve crustless (of course! no crusts allowed in the 6 and under crowd) mini sandwiches cut into little triangles on the cute little plate and will have carrot and celery sticks in the bowl. Dessert will be cookies in the 'surprise' sandwich holder that I will hold up prior to eating with the goal being they are intrigued enough to 'see' what is inside so that they will eat the food in front of them that will have ingredients that are oh so good for them. Fortunately, we have great eaters with the children in our family, but a little cookie enticement never hurt. 


It sounds like a get-together not to be missed, right? Who wouldn't want to see Toy Story 4 and then come home to eat and play with your best buds (cousins always make the bestest of friends when you're young)! I already know it's going to be a great day...a). because I know the kids involved b). because, well...Toy Story 4 and c). because these adorable and durable items from Zak Designs are a great way to keep the movie theme of the day going at home. You can get the dinnerwear gift set and tumbler seen above (as well as the sandwich container) on the Zak website where you can find so many different kinds of great items for the kids and the kitchen, or you can find Zak items on Amazon. The kit that is sold on Amazon also has a fork and spoon included (with the new character Forkie on them), and is priced right at $19.99.


So, have you seen the movie? Will you? Do you know Zak Designs!? Do you like to buy practical items with cute characters on them for the kids? Sound in below, I'd love to know any or all of the above...and I'll let ya know how my movie date and after party goes with the littles in my life as well. These are the kinds of day events that really make my summers fun.
