The Importance of Family and Friends in Abominable #giveaway

When I first saw the trailer for Abominable I already knew how the movie will play out: Girl finds Yeti. Girl befriends Yeti, Girl helps Yeti get back home. Now while this sounds like most movies you have seen before, the journey on how they get there is always the best part of the movie. Abominable may seem like something you have seen before, but it is not like something you have seen before.

Are you ready to make new friends with Toy Story 4? #giveaway

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a review copy of Toy Story 4 in exchange for a review and giveaway. All thoughts, opinions, and laughter are our own. Ka-boom! 

When Toy Story 4 was announced, I am sure I was not the only one that thought, "How are they going to continue the story of these toys?" To be honest, I thought the same thing before Toy Story 3 and that movie had me in tears by the end. We won't give away too much about Toy Story 4 since we covered it here so we'll let the movie speak for itself and continue reading to see how you can win a Blu-ray copy of the movie or our prize pack which includes a digital code with a Forky Magnet.

Just in Time for Halloween is The Spooky Tales of Captain Underpants: Hack-A-Ween

Captain Underpants is a staple in our household. My daughter has the books, which she reads to her brother every now and then. When the movie came out we watched it, enjoyed it, and my favorite part was at the end of the movie. We have watched the movie a lot at home and when the series came on Netflix we were excited. If you have not watched the show, take some time to watch them and then get ready for the new Halloween special. 

Time to get scared at home with Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

When I was a child, I read the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series and regretted reading them at night because I could not sleep. As much as I loved reading these stories, they were scary as hell and the covers of the books made them that more scary to read.

As fans of the Beatles, my daughter and I were excited to see Yesterday in the theaters, but we were never able to check it out. It such an interesting premise and we can not wait to see it now that it is available on Blu-ray and DVD. While waiting for the movie, we are enjoying the soundtrack and you can too. Also, if you are a vinyl enthusiast, keep reading to find out about the vinyl release of the album.

Riding to school with the Hover-1 Journey Electric Scooter #AD

Disclaimer: The Fandads were compensated for this post. All thoughts, opinions, and desire to own one of these are our own. 

The school year has begun and you know what that means; my children and I start enjoying our 3.5 block walk to school. The walks in the morning are great because we talk about everything and nothing. We'll chat about a movie or television show they saw, what they are looking forward to in their day, or what they want to eat for dinner at night. While we enjoy our leisurely strolls to school it is not like that every day.
