My Favourite New Monsters University Gear For Toddlers!

Of course it began with Monsters Inc., my own love affair passed down to my kids for all things Sulley and Mike. It wasn’t hard to get them on board, one viewing of the classic computer animated film and they were hooked. Which is quite the feat. To get a toddler loving anything involving monsters is not easily done. The original movie became one of few Disney movie purchases we’ve made, because my kids ask to watch it that often. So when the second movie, Monsters University finally came out, you bet we went to see it the very next day after it’s release.

That’s right. We went to the cinema with a 3.5 years and 23 month old. Which turned out more than fine. It was Wyndham’s second movie going experience (the 1st didn’t go so well) and Abby’s 1st. Movie going for young kids has come a long way! No longer is it a taboo notion, automatically dubbing a person a bad, inconsiderate parent if they take their (young) kids to the movie theatre. Now most theatres have special showing times, specifically for little ones. With lower volume and the banishment of shame and embarrassment if one’s child goes bonkers or decides to wander the aisles. They turn the lights up a tad no it’s not so dark and there are kids to be heard. Everywhere. Glory be.

The verdict? We all loved it. Especially Wyndham and I. He sat next to me and then on my lap for the second half in complete rapture and chattered on about it for days after. With birthdays, summer vacations and school shopping (sad but true), coming up and the constant growth spurts of toddler-hood; I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite Monsters U and Monsters Inc. gear that I know my kids will love. Probably yours too!

  • Squishy Head Cup with Straw 2 of 18
    03-

    If you have the toddlers then you go through sippy or straw cups. Just cups in general like nobody's business. Abby fell in love with Squishy and deemed him, "COOT, SKISSHY COOT." (Cute.) She recently named one of her babies 'Skisshy' Baby. So there you have it.

  • Sulley PJ Pal 15 of 18

    LOVE this Don Carlton cup! Currently my kids are fluxing between the use of sippy, straw and regular open cups for their drinking adventures. This one is just so fabulous, I would especially get a kick out of seeing them drink out of this.
