My kids love watching Gravity Falls on The Disney Channel. Maybe they have an affinity for Dipper and Mabel Pines because Dipper and Mabel are twins. Maybe they think all the weird situations the twins always seem to find themselves in are a hoot. Whatever the case, they're not the only fans of Gravity Falls: as of 2013, Gravity Falls is TV’s #1 animated series across Kids 2-11 (2.0 million/5.1 rating), Kids 6-11 (1.6 million/6.7 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (1.3 million/5.4 rating).
When The Disney Channel sent me a box of Gravity Falls goodies, I didn't even realize the cap inside the box was Dipper's Gravity Falls cap until the kids saw it and wanted to wear it!
Why the celebration? Throughout the month of August, Disney and SUBWAY restaurants, the world's largest restaurant chain, will bring fans "Gravity Falls" characters and promotional items through SUBWAY Fresh Fit for Kids™ Meals™. Each low-fat meal will include one of six reusable bags, with a specially designed "Gravity Falls" window decal or sticker. Check out the cool designs:
I love collecting the reusable bags from SUBWAY's kids meals because they're small and lightweight, so they make great alternate lunch bags for the kids when they leave their regular lunch bags at school, or when their regular lunch bags are still in the wash. I love that this series has girls and boys designs, so The Pea, Jammy and 3Po will all be happy :)
One last thing -- don't forget to watch the season finale of Gravity Falls! It first aired on August 2 but you'll be able to watch reruns on The Disney Channel. Here's the episode description:
Titled "Gideon Rises" - Gideon swindles the Mystery Shack away from Stan, everything in Gravity Falls appears to be even more west of weird - Dipper, Mabel and Grunkle Stan are forced to move in with Soos and his grandmother, while the town remains enamored with Gideon's charm. Meanwhile, Grunkle Stan isn't certain he can take care of the twins and is considering sending them back home. With their summer in Gravity Falls threatening to come to an end, Mabel and Dipper decide to take on Gideon and win back their home.
