Burbank, California, October 17, 2008—The film that taught the
world to “Wish Upon a Star” shines brighter than ever when Walt Disney’s original classic, Pinocchio: 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition is released from the Disney vault on March 10,
2009. Available for the first time in high-definition and 2-Disc DVD, Pinocchio is brilliantly restored with enhanced picture and sound unlike anything you’ve ever seen
or heard before. This classic story of magic, adventure and loyalty will be
available for a limited time only and comes loaded with bonus features that unlock
the doors to the magical world of Pinocchio.
Walt Disney’s second animated feature, Pinocchio debuted 70 years ago
with vibrant hand drawn animation, universally loved music like the
Academy Award® winning original song “When You Wish upon a Star,” and a
touching story that made it an instant classic. Introducing audiences
to the magical favorites of Pinocchio, Geppetto the puppet maker and
the Blue Fairy, Pinocchio also marks the screen debut of a character
who became one of Disney’s signatures: the fast-talking, wisecracking
2-Disc Blu-ray release not only includes a bonus standard definition DVD of the classic animated film in the same package, allowing viewers the opportunity to enjoy Pinocchio on a
standard def DVD while they are preparing to upgrade to a 1080p Hi-Def Blu-ray
experience in the near to present future, but provides viewers accessibility to Disney’s popular
BD-Live Network, a backstage pass for Blu-ray Disc owners to chat, video stream, participate in
communal games and download exclusive content unavailable to general DVD owners.

Wow, and I thought I was the only one who got the car adapter bottle warmer and thought it was dumb.
Diaper Genie, no matter what we did it never worked right and have you ever smelled a day (or longer) old diaper? When you open this thing it was like being slapped in the face with a landfill! How hard really is it to step outside your door and dispose of the diaper in 1 minute or less? I think I spent more time trying to get this thing to work then in a year of walking out to the trash can outside. Waste of money and time.
baby wipe warmer
ear plugs, its not like i could use them
A changing table which I never used. I always changed the baby on the bed or couch
A “diaper champ” just a glorified garbage pail.
I’m laughing hysterically at these entries!! The dress for a boy and belly bands are making me crack up as I type this!! I really don’t have anything to top those posts!!! Toys that are corny like that do the chicken dance or sing oldies songs -yeah, broken and mute. Those are VERY popular (obviously g-sale or thrift store) re-gifted er, “gifts” Thanks for the entry! Pinocchio is such a sweet movie 🙂
That Mommy Bear that has the fake heartbeat.
A baby headband; they are so unnecessary and unbecoming!
We received a teddy bear that had a hole in it’s head to put a baby bottle. ???? Like I was going to hold a teddy bear while feeding my baby? And by the time baby was old enough to hold the bottle herself, the bear was way to unwieldy to hold for her anyway.
A blanket with a piece of foam inserted in it in case you thought you would let the baby’s head flop….
We received a video monitor as a gift. It really was a ridiculous gift and expensive when a regular voice monitor will do the trick.We would rather not watch pur child all night long o a closed circuit tv. We returned it for a gift card.
Diaper Genie. We got two used ones as gifts, never used them. Had no bags in them. Replacements were expensive. Takes up space. Just used plastic bags and if the smell was bad dumped them in to the garage. We finally gave them to someone else.
A BABY WIPE WARMER
a baby bath robe
My son recieved a doll that was anitomically correct. Too funny ,a boy doll,we had many laughts with that doll and everyone wanted to see the peepee
We had trouble with our Diaper Genie, too. One time, somehow I cut the bag inside and I had a huge mess!
A baby wipe warmer Oh really
I think it was a hand holder –
but it looked more like a dog leash
I got a diaper warmer with an adapter to plug it into the cigarette lighter in your car.
I would have to say a wipes warmer. I never used it because I felt it was very dumb. Thanks!
I hated the diaper genie. Couldn’t use it easily with one hand, and who wants to pay for their special bags?
A subscription to a cloth diaper service. Although very green, also very stinky
Old fashion diaper pins (and they smelled like cigarettes).
I received two giant baby bottles (full of equally useless stuff) at a dad-baby shower at work. Embarassing to walk through the building carrying those! Big, goofy looking, and a complete waste of space. I think we gave them to Goodwill at some point.
a scottie dog sweater that she wouldn’t grow into for a decade or more
Umm, the thing that’s a harness but looks like a dog leash!!!
The thing that’s a harness but looks like a dog leash!!!
A toy that turned out to be a dog toy! Never did understand why.
Thanks for the contest!
the baby food spinner
We were given jewelry (necklaces, bracelets) for our newborn girls. They were literally tiny to fit them as newborns.
We received a bear that plays heartbeat sounds. It always freaked our kids out.
What a great classic!
a diaper warmer, because I didn’t need it
I received a name book eventhough my husband and I had our baby names for 4 boys and girls before we even got pregnant.
I got a baby food spinner (for storing) and a wipes warmer. I know some people use these things but not me!
Enter me into the contest please!
a used Monopoly Game , note said he will grow into it
Has to be the diaper genie…could not figure out how to use it and in about a week it broke anyway. Thanks for the chance!!!
The car bottle warmer was gimpy. Thanks for the cahnce
I liked my diaper genie. A weird baby tub shaped like a bear, however, was not used by us.
a baby bathrobe
Mine was the sterling silver spoon, like I’m really going to use that or try to keep it clean from tarnish. It’s in a drawer somewhere.
we got a baby helmet that is really stupid, also diaper wipe warmer- come on what a waste
diaper wipe warmer for sure. also baby night lights. maybe for toddlers, but babies?
Thanks for entering me! Great Contest!
Please enter me–my grandson would love this–
we never received any silly baby gifts
I can’t remember any dumb baby gifts but I do have a pet peeve about baby/toddler stuffed animals that aren’t washable
my grandson would love this
The diaper genie. I couldn’t set it up correctly and the refills were so expensive and added more plastic to the environment. I never did buy any refills and couldn’t even give it away for free.
I got a thing to warm baby wipes. It was ridiculous.
Hope I win!
Diaper genie, they dont work for nothing! You can use a plastic bag, and it does better than those things!
I can’t wait to see this again..
I have to go with the diaper wipe warmer as well. It’s a waste of space when they are little, and a danger when they are toddlers (one more plug in the house…which we all know toddlers love).
I don’t know about “dumb” but for my older children, they used to sell “belly bands” you’d snug around the baby to keep the belly button an “innie”
diaper wipe warmer sounds like a waste of money
Dress for a boy.
I have never gotten a silly baby gift. If you can’t use it personally, give it to someone who can!
I’ve never gotten a silly or dumb baby gift, but I did have a baby wipe warmer….it was completely useless.
i want to win
My family would really like to win this, please enter me & thanks for the great contest 🙂
My kids would really enjoy this!
I think the changing table was stuipid- we never used it.
ear plugs–they never worked-kids were always too loud!!!
i grew up on this one
The bottle prop up thing. I would never leave my baby unattended while she eats!! Thanks for the chance.
Please and thank you.
Probably a set of elephant ears. Please accept my entry. Thank you.
I have no children so I’ve never been given any baby products.
I think being given a baby robe was pretty unnecessary. Getting a wet, wiggly baby into a bathrobe is not an easy task!
I can’t recall any dumb baby gifts, but I remember getting alot of certain items and not enough of others. With my second child I was much more prepared, I really knew what I would need !!
Don’t tell the truth and see what happens.
I don’t remember anything stupid. I actually liked the diaper genie. They didn’t have the wipe warmers then. That seems pretty stupid to me.
For me it was definitely the Diaper Genie.
I could never get it to work properly or get the refills in properly.
Thank you so much for offering this wonderful giveaway 🙂
It doesn’t really apply to me, but I’ve had relatives and friends who’ve mentioned the uselessness of the diaper genie.
Well I don’t know if it was the dumbest, but the ugliest (hence dumbest) was some God awful knitted dress thing that someone made for my daughter when she was born. I know it’s supposed to be the thought that counts, but MAN that thing was ugly!!!
A bottle holder that ties the bottle to the baby.
The car adapter bottle warmer. Never used it, and wouldn’t think to use it.
a needle point w/y baby’s wrong D.O.B. and the wrong weight. The thought was nice and the effort that it took to make but it just didn’t mean anything since the info was wrong.
Probably crocheted blankets. Thought they were itchy and didn’t want baby throwing up on them
a stainless steel sippee cup.
I personally think the diaper wipe warmer is a waste of money & space.
While I appreciated the thought behind the gift, probably the Diaper Genie was about the most stupid, useless gift we ever received! Overpriced, one-more-space-wasting item, just plain silly! But, the givee meant well and that was what was important :)Thanks for another great giveaway!
