Having fun for a great cause. #RedNoseDay

Parents how many time does this scenario sound familiar? You're children are telling you that they are hungry and when you get dinner prepared and set on the table they say that they are not hungry. Sometimes they say that they do not like what you made for dinner or come up with some other excuse. Sadly, while your children have the luxury of being picky about what they eat there are many children that do not have this option.

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray release and Giveaway

Disclaimer: The Fandads have teamed up with Disney to help promote the upcoming release of Beauty and the Beast in exchange for digital copies of the movie to giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

Earlier this year the Fandads were invited to an advance screening of Beauty and the Beast and we were blown away by how magical the movie was with actual actors in the roles instead of animated characters.

Another Fantastic Time at C2E2!

C2E2 has come and gone and the Fandads were there to take in all the wonders it had to offer, and this year did it offer some goodies for the entire family. The Fandads went down there with a few missions and were we able to accomplish them? Keep reading to find out.

T-Shirt Thursday

Today's shirt is bought to you from the team at Super7. I saw this shirt at C2E2 and like the lady in Napoleon Dynamite who saw the model ship, I looked at my wife and said "I want that!" This shirt stood out to me from all the shirts they had on display. I mean this is Rick Hunter's Veritech Fighter! How could you not want a shirt with this vehicle on it!

For those of you that do not know where this vehicle is from you need to go to Netflix and binge watch Robotech. This was one of my favorite shows growing up and I can not wait to share it with my children. I hope they love it as much as I did. What's not to love? Amazing space battles, fantastic vehicles that can transform and a pretty great storyline. Robotech was one of the coolest shows I would watch growing up and I'm glad I can share it with my children and rock this shirt to show others about the greatness that is Robotech.

Horsing around with Spirit: Riding Free #giveaway

(Disclaimer: The Fandads have teamed up with Netflix to promote Spirit: Riding Free in exchange for a giveaway opportunity for our readers. All thoughts, opinions are our own or that of our children.) 

On May 5th a new show premiered on Netflix about a group of girls and the horses they befriend called Spirit: Riding Free. Now while this show is not a continuation of the movie that came out during some of our childhood, it does have a connection to it. The Fandaughters caught a few of the episodes over the weekend and they enjoyed what they saw.

What to do! 

Yeah, yeah we know. We are still working on a better title.

Ok, now that we got that out of the way let's begin with things we can do in the city this weekend.

The Super Hero we need right now. #WonderWoman

I think I talked about how when I was younger my babysitter would always have a stack of comic books for me to read while she took care of me. While many of the books were Marvel, there would be a few DC books hidden among the pile and these were my first introduction to Wonder Woman.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Review #GotGVol2

Opening today in theaters across the country is the continuation of the adventures of The Guardians of the Galaxy. The Fandads were lucky to see an advance screening of this movie on Monday and it was a delight to see our old friends on the big screen again along with some new ones. There will be some spoilers in this review, so be warned if you continue reading.

T-Shirt Thursday - Star Wars Day Edition 

Happy Star Wars Day friends! Today's T-Shirt come from the good folks at Thirteenth Floor. I first saw their designs a few years ago at Wizard World, but back then they only had prints and posters for sale. This year at C2E2, they had a pretty sizable booth on the show floor which not only had the prints, but also shirts and sweaters for men and women. 

I really like their SWVSWWII designs because they have amazing photos from Wolrd War II with Star Wars characters or vehicles embedded in them. The shirt I bought has a group of soldiers looking at a downed Tie-Fighter. Check out their website when you can and look at their other designs. 

Thanks for reading and May the 4th be with you!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a downloadable copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for this review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

The second must buy title for the Nintendo Switch has finally arrived! Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is out and it's time to start your engines! Most of you are probably quite familiar with the Mario Kart series, some of you might even be owners of Mario Kart 8, so you're probably thinking why do I need another copy?
