Pillowland is an interactive play about a boy named Stanley that cannot fall asleep. He and his friends go on an adventure to find out how to sleep, and you can tag along for the ride! Stanley always has trouble falling asleep – even counting sheep doesn’t help! When he receives an invitation to visit the Kingdom of Pillowland, he sets off on an exciting adventure with his friends Finn, Quinn and audience members are invited along for the ride!
This show is perfect for the entire family, including the first time theater goer as we even brought our 3-month-old and did not feel out of place. My 5 & 3-year-olds are veteran theatre goers, but they especially loved this novel experience of an interactive performance. Kids and adults were all laughing hysterically and embracing the fun. All of the kids were encouraged to participate and laugh throughout the show. Veteran or newbie, your kids do not want to miss this amazing show! And, as huge fans of Laurie Berkner, we loved getting to see her song “Pillowland” come to life.
This would make a great birthday surprise to friends or holiday gift with grandparents. We are even taking our nieces and nephews visiting from out of town that are too young for Broadway shows but want to experience the theater in NYC!
FiDi Families Insiders: Feel free to come to the show in your PJ onsies! Perfect for rolling out of bed and straight to the theater on Sunday Mornings. Stay after the show for a chance to meet the cast.

Team FiDi Families was invited to many events during the month of October in recognition of the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is organized by national and international charities every October. The various events help bring attention to research and development and to offer support to those affected by breast cancer. We were lucky enough to attend the Pilates on Fifth Breast Cancer Awareness event known as Pilates for Pink.
This informative event focused on post-operative pilates workouts and how pilates and exercise can assist in breast cancer recovery. The panel was led by the twin co-founders, Katherine and Kimberly Corp, who are the co-founders of Pilates on Fifth, but the twin sisters are former Rockettes. They are also co-authors of a new book, “Pilates for Beginners”. The book focuses on core pilate exercise and easy at home sequences.
Guests were treated to lite bites as well as complimentary manicures by Gina Hicks, the Founder of GLH Nails. Her vegan polish was a hit with all the attendees.
Pilates on Fifth is also offering a two-week complimentary trial to try their classes at home, by visiting their website HERE. The at-home program is great for beginners or advanced level pilates.

FiDi Families recently had the chance to attend a Lexus Pet Safety Event with The Girls Guide to Cars Team in Princeton, NJ. It was a fun morning full of education and networking as we learned about simple but effective ways to keep four-legged friends safe, while traveling. We met with the team from SleepyPod about different options for a harness, a travel carrier for a variety of weights and for feline friends, as well.
At the end of the day, only 6 states have official regulations and laws to keep pets safe in vehicles. But, pet owners have the ability to keep their four-legged pets safe, on their own. Which is why it was great to see the support that Lexus has for pet, transport and the well-being of these important family members.
We loved all of the models of Lexus and by the end of the event, I was ready for a new car and my daughter was ready for a dog. Sadly, we didn’t leave with either, but look forward to sharing what we learned with our friends with pets.
We had so much fun and looking forward to future events with A Girls Guide to Cars. Visit their site HERE. #ad #lexuspetsafety
Parenting struggles are a dime a dozen. Ask any parent about the challenges of parenting and more than likely, you will get a laundry list of struggles…bedtime, potty training, teething, sleep deprivation and mealtime and snack time struggles. So, it makes sense that the Jif Brand would team up with Neil Patrick Harris, a father, and parent of twins, who also happens to be a fantastic actor on stage, tv, and film and an all-around good guy. He was joined on stage by a comedy troupe, doing improv and acting out real-life parenting struggles that many parents have faced. The Moms Network invited bloggers to attend a taping of a Facebook Live streaming event, which was broadcast from the iconic Caroline’s on Broadway.
The audience was invited to participate as well and the interaction between NPH and his fans, along with the chance to laugh at ourselves and the trials and tribulations of parenting was genius.
Jif Powerups are a great way for parents to offer a healthy snack and especially for kids that are busy and on the go. Summer camp, adventures that take families near and far are great examples of how Jif Powerups can be a part of a healthy and adventurous day.
As we launch into summer, summer camp, road trips and air travel, we are excited to add the Jif Powerups to our arsenal of healthy and tasty treats for kids and adults!
