Headsup: Nickelodeon Holiday Kids Stuff – Part 2

Winx Club: Believix Musa

Because there was simply too much to cover in a single post, we thus proceed: It makes sense to enter into the fairy market. I don’t mean where you can haggle with Seelie rug manufacturers–I mean the same place where Disney has placed Tink & Friends (or whatever they’re calling it). Young girls love action figures (when they’re called dolls) and they also greatly appreciate fantasy and towards both of those ends you get their love of fairies. Winx Club is an Italian cartoon that’s hit stateside on Nick and here they have, via Jakks Pacific, a line of six of the Club fairies. This is the 11.5″ Musa, the fairy of music, complete with glitter-bedecked wings and a brush–because hair on dolls is extremely important (so I’ve been told). The wings do flap when you move the doll and they also pop off, allowing you to mix and match with other dolls in the line. In addition to the tie and shoes that she shows up wearing (and the brush), you also get a Club Membership Card. The dolls actually are pretty cute and poseable–and the franchise appears to be quite popular with the demographic. And at around $20, you won’t want to rush out and snag the entire line for your kid (or if you do have that sort of cash to throw around, just remember me) but a fan of the show would love the hell out of this.

Your Weekend Justice #93: Casablanca Gets You Laid

It’s Weekend Justice: the podcast that will order a metric ton of tatertots and charge the lot to your hotel room. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

That’s right, it’s a double dose of SpongeBob SquarePants for a prize pack in this contest, thanks to Nickelodeon. First up, we’ve got SpongeBob’s Greatest Hits which has

…17 tracks of original music from the past 10 years of the hit animated series, as well as new hits like “We’ve Got Scurvy,” an original song performed by P!nk, and a remix of the SpongeBob SquarePants theme song performed by Cee-Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley. Also included as a holiday bonus track is the aptly titled “Don’t Be a Jerk (It’s Christmas),” a new song, co-written by Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob, and Andy Paley.

And the DVD is SpongeBob SquarePants: To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants:

When SpongeBob finds that all of the stores in Bikini Bottom are out of square pants, will he take on round pants as a new look? In addition to this episode, the DVD set features seven other new-to-DVD episodes and super silly special features including an Animation Art Gallery, Storyboard Panels, and Character Art.

We’re giving away five copies of both. So if you win, you get one of each. How do you win? You enter using the form below and enter once a day. And if we draw your name when it’s over and done with, then you snag them. Good luck.
