There's so many great shows for kids out there right now, and another in the regular rotation here at Rock Father HQ is KATE & MIM-MIM. Airing on Disney Junior with new episodes beginning TONIGHT, Monday, August 1, at 8:30pm, the show is inspired on the adventures of a real-life girl and her beloved stuffed toy bunny, following the adventures of 5-year-old Kate and her stuffed friend Mim-Mim. "Thanks to Kate’s outsized imagination, in each episode the friends are transported to the fun-filled world of Mimiloo, where Kate’s little plush toy magically transforms into a larger-than-life playmate, and together they embark on exciting adventures with their colorful cast of friends." Each Monday this month will bring a brand-new episode, while a full assortment of fantastic new toys from the folks at Just Play are hitting retailers right now! Having seen them first-hand at the recent Sweet Suite portion of Blogger Bash in New York City, I know a lot of kids will be wishing for them this Fall and Holiday season. Check out details on all the new episodes below!

The friends need to get back to the treehouse to return to regular size, but the tools they’d normally use are too big for them now! “Lunar or Later” – Kate and her family are on a picnic and looking for a new place to explore. In Mimiloo, Kate’s friend Rumbly also wants to explore somewhere new—the moon! So the gang boards their rocket ship and blasts off to the moon, where exciting new discoveries await!
