Wishes for a New Year: Star Darlings from Disney

We are a pretty close family. We love spending time together and doing things as a family. In fact, my kids love it so much that they are constantly asking what else we can do together. We have been throwing ideas around about taking a big family cruise with all of the cousins and grandparents plus a few other road trips.

We were recently asked the question: “What are your family’s wishes for 2016? If you could grant a wish to anyone, who would it be for and what would it be?” So we sat down at the dinner table and talked about it.

My Family's Wishes for 2016

My middle child has been excited about her backpack initiative. She sees a lot of kids who cannot afford backpacks and take their books to school in a plastic grocery bag. She also sees a lot of kids with broken backpacks or they are ripped in places. Her wish would be for every student in her school to have a new backpack this fall.

As a family, we would love to grant one wish to another deserving family. There was a family near us recently who lost everything in a home fire. We provided them with a couple of laptops for the kids but we would love to be able to provide them with new clothing and bikes as well. This would be the one wish that my family would absolutely love to grant.

We also all wish to travel together and to go someplace fun where we can relax. The kids want the beach and I am inclined to think that is a great idea!



StarDarlingsLogoAbout Star Darlings from Disney

Star Darlings from Disney was launched in fall 2015 and is for tweens.  Just like real girls, each Star Darling has her own wish that she pursues with full force and determination—and the help of her friends. Star Darlings answers the question of where wishes come from, and features a diverse array of star-charmed girls who encourage and help others to fulfill their heartfelt wishes.

As far back as anyone can remember, Starlings who have completed special training, have granted wishes for Earthlings. But a major crisis is afoot and soon twelve unique girls from the prestigious Starling Academy are chosen to be the first student Starlings to venture to Earth. Rich with themes of friendship, confidence, leadership, and teamwork, the Star Darlings as they are known, go on the most magical adventures of their lives. Determined to succeed in spite of their youthful inexperience, the girls show courage and ingenuity—plus a whole lot of humor—as they guide Wishers to discover happiness and fulfillment.

These shared journeys and experiences provide exceptionally positive examples to inspire tweens to follow their dreams, and are experienced through books, dolls, music and apparel, along with a mobile app and animated shorts. Disney “Star Darlings” offers an innovative and unparalleled lifestyle experience that encourages tweens to harness the power of their individuality, highlights the power of making positive choices, and shows that they can make anything possible.

Initially conceived by designer Shana Muldoon Zappa, and her husband, New York Times bestselling author Ahmet Zappa (Because I’m Your Dad), “Star Darlings” was inspired by their daughter. “Our intention with Star Darlings has always been to empower girls and let them know there is an unstoppable wish energy created by positive thinking, taking action, and believing in yourself,” said Shana Muldoon Zappa.

    How cute for girls. My nieces are a bit too young for these now, but when they are a bit older I bet they will check these out.

  2. I’ve never heard of this! I think my 11-year-old would absolutely LOVE these books!!! She’s been asking if we can go to the book store (but didn’t know what she wanted) so these would be great to find and show her!!

  3. I love how Disney is coming up with things that encompass a good deal of scifi-Aside from adult shows you don’t see too much science fiction for kids and teens that isn’t completely toned down. Plus it seems to have a good message 🙂

  4. If my daughter was younger, she would definitely want to check these out. I will let the little girl at church know though. She is the right age.

  5. Those sound like awesome books! My daughter is still a little too young for them, but they will be great for when she is older.
