We Attended Our First Sweet Suite and Here is What we Loved!

On Wednesday, July 22, the Fandads attended the first-ever Toy Insider Sweet Suite @ Home event. In the time of Covid and social distancing, this was a great way for toy brands and social influencers to connect and see the exciting new toys coming out later this year. For our first time attending, we were excited and made sure to take advantage of all that was offered.

Trolls World Tour Rocks the House

I remember watching the first Trolls movie at home with my children and was quite a surprise. I did not know what to expect and the storyline was fun. The songs were catchy and there were a few scenes that had me laughing out loud. When the trailers for the second movie came out it vaguely resembled a certain Marvel movie that was released. The Rock Troll is stealing multi-colored strings to eliminate all other forms of music and make rock the only music for all Trolls.  Sound familiar.

Get Ready for Adventure with Rockford T. Honeypot

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with an advance copy of The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot in exchange for a review. All thoughts, opinions, and need for adventure are our own. 

When I was younger I would spend my days reading anything that I could get my hands on. I always loved to find books that would take me on adventures to other worlds. Now that I have children, I love that they have fallen in love with books like their father. My daughter is always reading something and my son finds old children books on our shelves and reads them quietly to himself. When my review copy of The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot arrived I knew this would be a book that we would all enjoy together.

Netflix's THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB Premieres July 3rd!

When I was younger I would read pretty much everything. Reading was my escape and it helped me get through a lot of my early years. While I mainly stuck to books having to do with themes boys would like: Space, monsters, and adventure, I never read the Baby-Sitters Club books. I knew about them and when I worked at a bookstore I would recommend them to families, but I never took the time to read them.

New STAR WARS MINIMALIST Prints for your Home!

As a Star Wars fan, I am always amazed at the amazing art the is put out for the world to consume. If I had the wall space, I would buy every piece of art that would take me back to that galaxy far, far away. Sometimes you see artwork that has a fresh take on your favorite characters that you have to share with everyone you know. These latest pieces by S. Preston are a great way to showcase your love for some of your favorite characters from the Star Wars Universe.

Chicago Dogs Release Their 2020 Season Schedule

With summer coming up we are approaching the beginning of baseball season. This year the baseball season's are going to be a little short and a little bit restrictive on the crowds attending, but it will be a good distraction from all that is going on in the world. We have been to Chicago Dogs' games a few times over the years and hopefully, we will attend some games once they start up again in July. The team just released their 2020 game and promotional schedule.
