So, I recently started an internship with the Jim Henson Company, which has had a very close relationship with Disney ever since they sold the Muppets in 2004. (Just so you know, the internship is awesome!!) Well, this week at work I got to meet Courtney Watkins, the bubbly, charismatic host of The Possibility Shop. For those of you who are not familiar with the darling web series, which airs on the Disney Living website, it is essentially an arts and crafts show that provides parents and children with imaginative projects they can do together. For example, in one of my favorite episodes (“Slumber Party Camp-in Kit”), Courtney teaches her young guests how to recreate a safe and fun camping experience right in your own living room. As a mother herself, Courtney’s primary goal is to promote family fun and creativity, which I think she does in a very unique way.

Slowly but surely Disney Online has become a repository for web series keeping the needs of the entire family in mind. Cat Cora and the Muppets were recently announced, but even before that DisneyFamily.com had ‘The Possibility Shop,’ which featured the talents of the Jump Henson Company. A second season of “The Possibility Shop” (www.Family.com/PossibilityShop), an original web series produced by The Jim Henson Company has just debuted.

The site, which can be accessed through DisneyFamily.com, will be updated every two to three weeks with content designed to inspire the imagination of the entire family through creative projects, activities and games. The Clorox Company returns as the exclusive sponsor for all 20 webisodes in season two of “The Possibility Shop.”
