Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Review

Disclaimer: The Fandads attended an advance screening in exchange for promoting Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and hosting a giveaway for our readers. 

Representation matters.

Our review might be a tad biased. Just wanted to let you know ahead of time. It didn’t take much more than a couple of minutes, but there we were, represented on screen. “I had those Jordans when I was a kid!” “They’re speaking Spanish!” The film is full of moments that had us tearing up. Miles had a black book, he threw up a piece, he had stickers, hip-hop music, turntables! That could be us on the screen, WE COULD BE SPIDER-MAN!

LEGO's #BuildToGive Campaign Brings Joy to All

Disclaimer: The Fandads have teamed up with our friends from LEGO and received a few LEGO sets to help promote their #BuildToGive campaign. 

I have been fortunate to not have stepped on any LEGO pieces in my adulthood. My children are good about cleaning up after themselves when it comes to their LEGO sets, but while they are lucky enough to have some sets to build and create there are some children that are not as lucky. As a way to help out those children LEGO is sharing the gift of play with their #buildtogive campaign.

The Art Deco Nutcracker Review

Disclaimer: The Fandads were invited to the opening night of The Art Deco Nutcracker. All thoughts, opinions, and fascination are our own. 

Since I was a kid I have been familiar with the music from The Nutcracker. Be it through cartoons, television shows, or even commercials, I have heard the music of the beloved ballet. One thing that I have never done though is watch the actual The Nutcracker.  Luckily, my daughter and I got to experience The Nutcracker together in the form of the Art Deco Nutcracker and we both enjoyed it.
