    Photo-A-Day #4509

    We received a package of new Voltron Metal Defender series toys from Playmates Toys to play with and review. These are my opinions alone.

    I have to admit, I was walking the aisle of Target and saw that there were these new Metal Defender Voltron lions out for sale. These were diecast metal lions that combine to for Voltron. I saw that there was a set with all five of the lions together and so I asked my contact at Playmates Toys if I could get one to review. I did not get that one, instead I got a box that had all five individual lions in separate boxes. This was perfect! I was super excited wen I got home and they were there. These were the Voltron Toys I’d been waiting to see made. These lions work together to form an 8 inch Voltron. You can see how they all go together in my video below and then I have some photos of each lion and Voltron below.

  • a girls soccer team that loves to compete in their Princess dresses

    I know that there are people who will disagree with me but I like Disney Princesses. I’ve raised my daughter on the movies and the toys and the stories. I have been fortunate to live in a time where there are more Disney Princesses who are empowered, strong and smart. There is a program right now that is a collaboration between Disney, The United Nations Girl Up Foundation and 19 female photographers who have been capturing powerful images showcasing real-world women and girls who have been inspired by the Princesses. The image above is of a girls soccer team that likes to play in princess dresses. How cool is that!

    You can see a sample of the photos below, which range from a young entrepreneur who created a STEM book about girls coding, to a girls soccer team that loves to compete in their Princess dresses, to the first female elephant keepers in Kenya, to a Paralympic fencing champion in Japan, and more. read more!
