Catch Up with Emmet and Friends in the All New LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure

IMG_3929

A little snow wasn’t going to stop my little man and his best girl from catching up with Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny at the uber fun LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Westchester. What have they been up to since their blockbuster movie where everything was left AWESOME!? The sequel to the movie won’t hit theaters until 2018 and that’s LONG while away. I won’t spoil the fun, but The LEGO Movie – 4D A New Adventure has made its official debut and is showing at a LEGOLAND Discovery Center near you. Playing several times throughout the day, you don’t want […]

Educational Gaming With @LeapFrogOfficial #LeapTV #LeapFrogMomSquad

leap

I’ve been reluctant to introduce gaming systems to my kids for the longest time.  Sure they can navigate my smart phone better than me at this point, and even my three-year-old knows how to swipe into whatever app he is interested in playing, but my husband and I really try to limit TV time with our children and video gaming through the TV seemed to be a mind-numbing activity that I was hoping to keep far away from our household. When my five-year-old heard (through the ‘kindergarten grape vine’) about something called #LeapTV, it was all he could talk about. […]

Sesame Street Live Returns to NYC with “Let’s Dance!” (GIVEAWAY: Win a Family 4-pack of Tickets!!)

Sesame Street has always been huge in our house. For the last five years (since our first was born) our children (and even their parents) have loved watching our favorite Sesame Street characters in the many clever parodies and skits that keep our kids entertained and engaged. It’s equally exciting to see these characters come to life when Sesame Street Live! comes to town. We have taken our children to the shows in the past and regardless of their ages, it is always a memorable experience for everyone. This year’s performance is called Sesame Street Live! “Let’s Dance!” and is […]

GIVEAWAY: The Berenstain Bears LIVE! Family Matters the Musical in NYC!!

BerenstainBears

Do you remember your favorite childhood stories? I can recall countless Berenstain adventures that I loved hearing about at bedtime. My favorite book as a child was Inside Outside Upside Down, an entertaining story about a sneaky bear cub, that I now get to read to my kids. While there are so many new characters out there to impress my children these days, I often find that the classics still keep them engaged and entertained. My childrens’ minds explode with each lesson that they learn through reading. The Berenstain Bears are a large part of our bedtime story telling and the kids love following Brother […]

Emotional Ups and Downs of ‘Inside Out’ #FandangoFamily

Joy & Sadness

If there is one movie you should take your child to this holiday weekend, let it be Inside Out. My family and I had a chance to see a Director’s Cut during the Disney Social Media Moms Conference in April and while our preview was only 75% of the movie, it gave us so much to think about and my kids were dying to see the rest of it. When we finally got a chance to see Inside Out opening weekend, to say we were left speechless in an understatement.  It had all the beauty and wit that we have […]
