Princess Frou Frou – Hailey and the Hero Hearts

Episode: A Slight Hiccup đź’–

Synopsis:

Hailey can’t stop blabbing and tells Aliya what Rebecca is getting her for her birthday. The Hero Heart sends them all to Princess Frou Frou’s castle (Hailey’s stuffed bear come alive). They meet Madame Glam, the makeup brush charged with putting on the princess’ makeup. She has hiccups that need fixing because every hiccup means another horrible streak on the queen’s face! The royal dehiccuppers can’t do their job because Blurt the trumpet keeps giving away the surprise from Jack (jack-in-the-box)! The team helps Blurt slow down when he’s excited and they restore trust on the dehiccupper team as the girls learn that trust is so important in a good team.

I was so excited watching this episode. I play a lot of other additional characters throughout the series (like kittens and marbles) but I had so much fun voicing Princess Frou Frou! We got to record this episode with all of the actors, in studio and let me tell you…it was an absolute blast getting to play off one another during our reads! I loved it so much, and I’m glad we’re back to recording like this again now that studios have opened up. Ensembles are so much fun, and I can’t wait to watch the rest of this series!

You can watch the earlier episodes on Epic Story Jr.

Quick Update

It’s officially December, which means that NaNoWriMo22 has come to an end. I still have a lot to do for this novel, however it’s been so much fun to write, edit and develop the world of this story. I also got a lot of work done on the next books in The Vermin Series, and am preparing lots of fun content for that.

On Friday we wrapped up recording the newest season of Matchbox, which was fantastic! I can’t wait to see it fully animated in the new year. I have a lot of fun imagining what each scene will look like, and it was so much fun recording in studio with my co-star Julian this season. He’s a fantastic actor, and I can’t wait for you all to hear him as Kayla’s little brother Mason James. I’ll be sure to share the episodes when they come out.

Speaking of shows, on Thursday night I attended the premiere of Stay Tooned hosted by Eric Bauza aka the voice of Bugs Bunny. I love cartoons, and I love documentaries and film studies so this show was right up my alley. The premiere was so much fun, and nostalgic. I felt like a kid again seeing clips from the shows I grew up watching. When I got to thinking about it afterwards, a lot of these cartoons helped shape me, and inspired me to to do what I’m doing today. Stay Tooned is fun, informative and it is so clear that everyone who worked on the show put lots of love into it. It’s available to stream on CBC Gem.

I also released some new music, and have more coming very soon. My most recent releases are all songs my niece asked me to release, and the future ones are based on my favourite game, and stories I’ve written with my niece and sister. Hope you’ll check them out!

Margot Returns! – And is as Stylish as Ever!

I’m thrilled to announce that Margot is coming back to Polly Pocket. I love this character so much, and I’m super excited to voice her again.

This time Margot will be appearing in Polly Pocket Adventure Lab, which will air weekly on YouTube.

Thank you Mattel for having Margot make a return. I’ve had so much fun discussing this character with the studio and team at Mattel, and I absolutely adore her designs.

Having the opportunity to be apart of a toy brand that literally consumed my childhood is so much fun! I got my very first Polly Pocket when I was in Kindergarten. She was a ballerina, because at the time I was taking ballet classes, and she came with so many beautiful outfits. I loved playing with her in my sandbox but one day I lost her! To say that I was devastated would be an understatement. My little sister and I searched and searched for what felt like years. My heart was broken. Then one day, while playing with our friend wormy, who was a real worm that I’d pick up and liked to watch wiggle around on my shovel, I noticed something purple sticking out from underneath the sand. IT WAS POLLY! She’d been in the sandbox all along! Her hair had gotten damaged, and her eyes faded from being scratched by the sand, her arms and legs were a little wobbly, but she was back!

I still have that Polly Pocket 20 odd years later, and I absolutely adore her. There’s just something special about connecting with a favourite toy.

Losing her in the sandbox of course, wasn’t as bad as the time my sister and I begged our brother to climb up onto the roof to save our troll doll, who we tied to a skipping rope and were making fly around…until we whipped the skipping rope so hard we let go, and Mr. Troll flew up, up, up onto the roof. I still have him as well. He used to be very sneaky and would try and steal things from Polly and her sisters bakery. He also stole her car once! He was a really bad troll, but he had pink hair and a really cool green jacket, so I loved him. I think he’s the only troll doll I have left. I used to have one with pink skin, and two from the Trollz fashion doll series that my sister and I were obsessed with. Does anyone remember Trollbucks?

To this day I still absolutely love dolls. I love collecting them, finding and making doll sized accessories and creating stories about them. Most of my first stories were based on games I played with my dolls, and to this day I’ll still base a character off of one of them. I named Rose’s mother after Polly’s little sister Wendy, and Phoebe, Dianna and Peter’s cousin is named after a doll my sister had.

After we moved, our Dad helped my sister and I build our very own doll house, which we still have. Our niece uses it, along with the dolls I’ve collected over the years. I’ve been thinking of trying some cute little miniature crafts I found online, to add to our tiny town…well actually it’s expanded into several kingdoms, and the evil queen is vowing to return and rule the land.

Anyway, that turned into a bit of a random story, but I hope you’ll watch the new Polly Pocket episodes on YouTube, and I’d love it if you left a comment about your favourite toy growing up.

Introducing Polly Pocket Fab Lab!

I’m super excited about this new series! Peaches the dog is adorable, I actually used to have a Polly Pocket dog that looked just like her when I was little. I still have the majority of my Polly Pocket’s, and am a huge fan so being apart of this series and getting to work with Mattel on this show has been so much fun!

This is the first episode for the new series, and there’s more fun-sized adventures to come!

You’ll most likely see a familiar face in a very fun upcoming episode. Hehehe…

Matchbox World Tour Episode 1

It’s finally here!

I had so much fun watching this. It’s so cool seeing the episode, after imagining it in my head while recording the lines for Kayla and Emerson Felix. Seeing the teams vision come to life, and getting the opportunity to be apart of it is so cool.

I love the music, the transitions between reality and the kids imaginations. It seriously captures what it’s like to play, and how your imagination really does open up these fantastic worlds full of adventure.

I loved reading the map clues in each episode, that was always super fun. I learned some really neat new facts about places around the world! It was nice, pretending to travel all over as Kayla while recording from home.

I can’t wait to watch the next episode, and I hope everyone enjoys the show as much as I do.

Meet MARGOT

I’m so excited that I finally get to share one of the projects I was working on! I play Margot on Mattel’s Polly & Friends!

This series was so much fun to record. I loved getting to talk to them team about Margot, and going over her lines. Seeing her in action is awesome, and her HAIR! They told me she had cool hair while I was recording, but oh my gosh…it’s adorable!

I saw the Polly Pocket doll of her on the weekend too! She’s so cute! I absolutely adore her!

Thank you so, so, so much Mattel for this opportunity!
