  • Check out this all new LEGO Dimensions video featuring the one and only Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown from Back to the Future). He receives a mysterious package and well, the rest you have to see for yourself. I’m pretty excited to see LEGO Dimensions when it arrives in September. The game looks like it will be a lot of fun and there are a ton of expansion packs being released. I have seven below that were recently revealed. Click on the image for a larger image of the Expansion pack. After you watch the video.

    “Great Scott!”
    LEGO® Dimensions™ Adds More Iconic Characters from DC Comics, Back to the Future and LEGO Ninjago with New Expansion Packs!

    In a new video featuring actor Christopher Lloyd reprising his famous role as Doc Brown from the Back to the Future films, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today gameplay featuring even more beloved characters coming to LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming entertainment experience that merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay. In addition to LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and Wyldstyle, the three minifigure heroes used to start the experience, LEGO Dimensions will allow gamers to customize their experience post-launch and throughout the first half of 2016 with additional packs from the previously announced brands, including: DC Comics Team Pack featuring LEGO Joker and LEGO Harley Quinn minifigures, three additional DC Comics Fun Packs featuring LEGO Superman, LEGO Aquaman and LEGO Bane minifigures, Back to the Future Fun Pack with LEGO Doc Brown minifigure and two additional LEGO Ninjago Fun Packs with Sensei Wu and Lloyd minifigures.

    These highly collectible Team Packs and Fun Packs will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as special in-game abilities. All expansion packs provide gamers the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game, in any world with any character – there are no limitations.

    Players can bring up to seven characters, vehicles and weapons into the LEGO Dimensions game all at once by placing them on the LEGO Toy Pad to create extreme gameplay cross-overs, such as LEGO Superman piloting the LEGO DeLorean Time Machine through Hill Valley or LEGO Doc Brown fighting alongside LEGO Bane in New Ninjago City.

    Future expansion pack purchases will continue to work with the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, even in the fall of next year. No compatibility chart necessary.

    Additional well-known brands and expansion packs joining the adventure for 2015 and 2016 will be announced in the coming months.

    Launching September 27, 2015, LEGO Dimensions, will be available for Xbox One, the all-in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems and the Wii U system from Nintendo.

  • Adam and David Rudman

    While I was at the PBS Annual Meeting I got to see some of the new PBS Show Nature Cat. The show looks like a lot of fun with a very old school cartoon vibe to it. The show was created by brothers Adam and David Rudman. These two grew up with a great big backyard where all the neighborhood kids would gather. They developed this show to encourage kids to get outside and explore the nature in their own backyard. WE had a great time interviewing Adam and David and learned a lot about the new show especially how much work they put into the comedy of the show. This is something that both children and their parents will enjoy watching together.

    There will also be a Nature Cat App released later that kids and parents can use while they are outside on their nature adventures.

  • Daniel Tiger and his Dad Get Into Nature

    We received a copy of the latest Daniel Tiger DVD to watch and tell you about. Opinions are my own. The newest DVD is called “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and contains a collection of various Daniel Tiger episodes. There is a mixture of episodes from various seasons including some of the more recent episodes about getting out into nature.

    Being home with Andrew every day comes with challenges. He’s three now and pushing his boundaries. He’s trying a bunch of new things but he really still loves watching Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. He sings the songs all the time. I’ve been trying to take him on hikes and such more and more this year with the nice weather and he now sings the nature related songs. But there are days when I need to get some work done and Andrew gets many episodes of Daniel Tiger to watch. This DVD is great because I don’t have to turn on a new episode every half hour. Not that I leave him watching TV for hours on end but sometimes you can’t get a thing done in 30 minutes.

    The DVD is packed with some great episodes with good messages. read more!

    While I was at the PBS Annual Meeting I learned about the new show READY JET GO!. There was a breakfast where everyone learned about this new show. On the Tuesday before the PBS Kids VIPS learned about the show with a special session with the show’s creators. They answered questions and posed for photos plus Craig Bartlett sang us some songs from the show and even did an acoustic rendition of the Dinosaur Train theme, he created that show.

    I am looking forward to the show for a number of reasons. One big reason is for the interstitials with Dr. Amy Mainzer. I think that she’s going to be a role model for girls. I think that her personality will get them interested in the hard sciences. read more!
