Third season of Handy Manny in the works

Handy Manny has been picked up for a third season:

Having earned a reliable position on Playhouse Disney as perhaps a more functional, work-with-your-hands type of program, Handy Manny sports one young man, his talking tools, and a multi-lingual work environment. Recently ordered for a third season from Disney Channel, the kid’s cartoon will now be working double-time come the new year, with returning voice actors meant to tackle new adventures for Manny and his crew.

The third season of Handy Manny will include 35 new episodes. With fellow Playhouse Disney program Mickey Mouse Clubhouse still an enduring partner on the block, even if after the cancellation of adventure-mystery series My Friends Tigger & Pooh, Disney’s Handy Manny‘s audience remains in tact.

While you wait for new episodes, you can visit the show’s official Disney site, where there is music, games, and coloring pages. And talking tools! (Don’t forget the talking tools. They’re the best part.)

And—of course—don’t forget to check out Ty’s Handy Manny Store for all things Handy Manny.

Start gearing up for back-to-school at Ty’s

It doesn’t seem possible that summer is nearly over, but for those of us who head back to school in early August, it’s a reality. Part of me weeps for the end of those halcyon days…

… and the other part of me realizes that I am remembering through rose-colored glasses that have quickly forgotten the cry of “Mom! We’re bored! What should we do?”

Ahem.

Anyway! Soon we’ll be back in the classroom; my little darlings will be learning important lessons, and I’ll be being hit up for Kleenex and hand sanitizer. It’s the circle of life! Or at least, the circle of public school!

Ty’s Toy Box understands that getting them there in the right mood is half the battle, so feel free to check out the new Back To School Store for all of your back-to-school needs. There’s enough backpacks in there to delight even the most hard-to-please kid, from Thomas the Tank Engine to Avatar to Dora to Hannah Montana.

(Funny, for some reason my daughter is still balking at my suggestion of the Little Miss Trouble bag. I cannot imagine why.)

Hey, I know summer flew by, but at least getting ready for back to school can be fun!
