Kohl’s Care for Kids- Rio 2 Plush Toys and Books Review-Givewaway!

Rio 2 has just come out in the movies and Hayley/I are planning to take a trip to see it. We loved the first one, so are equally excited to watch the sequel to it. Now,  Kohl’s Department Stores  in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, is inviting families to bring the magic of the movies home this summer with exclusive merchandise from RIO 2 for just $5 through the Kohl’s Cares merchandise program. Blu and fan-favorite characters Gabi and Luiz from RIO 2, now in theaters, are venturing into Kohl’s stores nationwide to create lasting memories with children and parents alike.

About RIO and RIO 2

From Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Blue Sky Studios – the creators of Ice Age, Epic and Robots – the musical animation adventure comedy RIO tells the story of how rare blue macaws Blu and Jewel meet and fall in love in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. The entire cast of the animated smash RIO returns in RIO 2, and are joined by a new flock of top actors and musical talents.


Rich with grandeur, character, color and music, RIO 2 finds Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving domesticated life in a magical city for a journey to the Amazon. They encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild, voiced by Oscar® nominee Andy Garcia, Oscar/Emmy®/Tony® winner Rita Moreno, Grammy® winner Bruno Mars and Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth. Rio 2 also features new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monae and Wondaland. For more information visit www.riomovies.com.
