  • Marvel Tsum Tsum
    Photo-A-Day #4254

    Jakks Pacific sent me a bunch of Marvel Tsum Tsum Multi-packs to play with and review. I make an unboxing video of all of the Marvel Tsum Tsum packs. These are the cutest little collectibles. I only got a couple of doubles which I gave to the kids. They added them to their Disney Tsum Tsum Advent Calendar, which we unboxed on the 1st. I’m very grateful to my contacts at Jakks for having that arrive right on the first day of Advent.

    I have yet to play the Marvel Tsum Tsum game. I’m going to download it soon and these figures are the reason. They are adorable. I was at Target tonight to find some mystery packs for the kids for Christmas. I saw that the Disney ones and the Marvel ones were on sale. The nine pack was on Cartwheel for 50% off, too. I got plenty of stocking stuffers and some mystery packs for myself. The Mystery packs have the Tsum Tsum and a special accessory for the characters. I hope that I get Rocket with Baby Groot. Here is my unboxing video.

  • YOKAI WATCH Movie Poster

    I learned that YO-KAI WATCH: The Movie is now streaming on Netflix. This movie was recently in theaters and then on Disney XD. Now it is available for you anywhere, anytime on Netflix.

    YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE follows Nate Adams and his Yo-kai friends, Whisper and Jibanyan, as they’re transported to the past to help Nate’s grandfather, Nathaniel, battle evil Yo-kai and invent the Yo-kai Watch. YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE also introduces a new Yo-kai — Hovernyan, a floating blue cat who is Nathaniel’s heroic companion. Cinema Blend calls the film “a fun and fast watch that makes for some entertaining excitement,” and Anime News Network says YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE is “a funny and heartwarming comedy-adventure.”

    YOKAI WATCH Movie Still

    YO-KAI WATCH™ is a cross-media universe, following the hilarious misadventures of an average human boy and his involvement with the mischievous Yo-kai (invisible beings that are the cause of life’s daily annoyances) all around him. Our young hero obtains a special watch, empowering him to discover and summon the mysterious Yo-kai, befriend them and then work together to solve everyday problems… problems that are often caused by other trouble-making Yo-kai! Discover the adventures of Nate and his Yo-kai companions via video game, animated comedy series, comics, toys and video on demand. Visit the official website, as well as follow YO-KAI WATCH on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

  • Gryphon Park Observatory Skylanders
    Photo-A-Day #4253

    The family was on the Cape today and I wasn’t too tired so it was time to catch up on all my Skylanders unboxings. I unboxed all of the figures that I have. Some were sent to me for free from Activision and the rest I bought at Target, Best Buy and Toys R Us. I only made one Creation crystal, the Earth one that came with the Gryphon Park Observatory adventure Pack. I am saving the rest for a big video where I make one Imaginator of every element and Battle Class.

    I unboxed the characters Aurora, Solar Flare Aurora, Wolfgang, Steel Plated Hood Sickle, Jingle Bell Chompy Mage, Legendary Tri-Tip and Legendary Pit Boss. I also unboxed the Gryphon Park Observatory and played through that adventure pack level. I wasn’t going to add gameplay to the video but I woke up early enough that I could make a longer video with gameplay. So, when I recorded the parts of me talking I didn’t realize that I’d be up early enough to work on it. I’m glad I did. I like how it turned out, you can see it below.

    Don’t forget that I am giving away a 3D Printed Skylanders Imaginator. Check out my Skylanders Contest post to learn more.
