We can pretty much sing every single one of the Daniel Tiger songs. Andrew was all about Daniel Tiger for the longest time. We were getting up at 3am every day because he wouldn’t sleep. We’d go down to the living room and watch a couple of Daniel Tiger episodes. It would relax him and then the two of us would end up falling asleep on the couch. There are nice catchy tune from the show for each of the different strategies that are taught. We find ourselves singing them all the time even months after having watched the episodes. Now there is a full album of Daniel Tiger music that you can download at http://to.pbs.org/bigfeelings_itunes read more!

A whole new kind of family movie is coming out in September. A society of trolls adopts an orphan boy named Eggs. As you can see from the teaser trailer below these trolls are a bit weird and strange looking. They are fun and playful and protective and loving of Eggs. Here is some more information about and the teaser trailer for the movie.
Story: A family event movie from the creators of “Coraline” and “ParaNorman” that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous creatures who have lovingly raised an orphaned human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead-Wright) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.
Directors: Anthony Staachi and Graham Annable
Writer: Based on the novel Here Be Monsters by Alan Snow
Voice Cast: Ben Kingsley, Toni Collette, Elle Fanning, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan
Release Date: September 26th, 2014
The other day I wrote about my custom Kreons that I picked up. Yesterday’s Photo was of Optimus Prime. Today I decided to shoot the Megatron figure. The pieces for the Megatron figure are okay but they really should have a black fusion cannon instead of a silver one and a grey helmet instead of the translucent helmet and the silver helmet. Both figures are missing some very specific pieces. There should be an orange energon ax for Optimus Prime and there should be a purple energon mace for Megatron. That would have made the set much better overall, plus the other things I said about the Optimus Prime Custom Kreon.#3255
I picked up a couple of the KRE-O Custom figures at Toys R Us the other day. These sets have about 36 or so pieces to create custom Kreons. I grabbed Optimus Prime and Megatron. For the most part these sets are nice and there is the figure and also a piece that holds all the extra pieces except it doesn’t fit everything very well. They should include a second head so that the spare helmet sits on the torso properly. Other than that they are pretty decent with good looking figures. Having a G1 Optimus and G1 Megatron figure is nice.#3254
