Bring home the Pixar Short Films Collection 3

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a review copy and additional copies to giveaway in exchange for a review. All thoughts, opinions, laughs, and teary eyes are our own. 

One thing my family loves when we go see a Pixar movie is the shorts that play before the movie. From the funny "For the Birds" to the most recent "Lava", we love seeing the creativity in these shorts and can not wait to see them again. Luckily, Pixar has been making it easier for us by putting their most recent shorts together and selling them in one collectible bundle.

Powering up with Incredibles 2

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with an advance copy of Incredibles 2 for our review. All thoughts, opinions, and attempt to save the world are our own. 

When the Incredibles ended with the family all donning a mask and getting ready for action I wanted more. I mean if you are going to end the movie with a cliffhanger, you should give us a resolution soon, not 14 years later. Thankfully, Incredibles 2 starts off where the last movie ended and the story continues from there.

Having fun in the 100 Acre Woods with Christopher Robin

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with an advance copy of Christopher Robin to review. All thoughts, opinions and dusty eyes are our own. 

I remember the first time I saw the teaser trailer for Christopher Robin. I knew it was a movie about Winnie the Pooh, but the moment I heard his voice my eyes started to tear up. There is just something about his voice that brings back so many memories for me and seeing him live was just the icing on the cake.

Fandads and The Chicago Toy and Game Fair

The Fandads have been attending the Chicago Toy and Game Fair since 2012. Every year our children have a lot of fun playing with all of the cool toys that are available to play with. We always have fun seeing them enjoying themselves, and we have fun playing with the toys ourselves, too. Here is a quick rundown as to why you should attend the show and maybe there will be something for those of you that read until the end. Let's begin!
