    Next month I’ll be heading to LA for a special screening of Disneynature’s MONKEY KINGDOM opening in theatres next month (April 17th). I’ll also get to go to the LA Zoo to photograph and learn about monkeys. I a so excited to be able to do this. I’m also excited to see this movie. I enjoyed Chimpanzee a few years back and need to get a look at Bears.

    Disneynature has done a lot of good over the years. This featurette talks about what Disneynature has accomplished through their films and study of the animals filmed. The Official MONKEY KINGDOM website has tons of great information including an educator’s guide. You can also download the educator’s guide and a family activity pack below after the featurette.

    A couple of weeks ago I got into Sick Bricks. It is a fun game where you try and help the citizens of Sick City defeat Overlord Omega. Overlord Omega is trying to stop the citizens of Sick City from interacting with each other. He’s trying to bring order to the chaos and that isn’t going to fly. After playing the game for a while I went all in and got the toys that are out. I had pre-ordered many of them from Toys R Us and have no idea why they were on pre-order when they had already been released. I was at Target today and saw all the items that I pre-ordered and did some quick math to see that I could get them for a cheaper amount so I bought them at Target and cancelled the order at Toys R Us. Then I got a message saying that some of the items on my order were removed because they were out of stock. That seems to always be an issue with Toys R Us and pre-orders. It is strange to see items that are already in the store ending up as pre-orders. read more!

    Andrew is growing up. He’s moving up a couple of classes in swimming and he’s moving to the next phase of play group with more structured play. Each day he is growing and changing by leaps and bounds. We played with the Hall Stars game the other day and when I rolled the balls to him he was hitting a ton of them with the hockey stick. I can’t wait for the nice weather to finally be here so that we can go to the park and play more, I’ve got to tire this kid out. He’s so high energy and just wants to explore and discover.

    Thinking about Andrew getting older made me remember that I recently received a .pdf of a children’s book written by Louie Lawent. It is called Mama Don’t You Worry and you can buy it for $1.29 on It is a very, very short story about a young boy who gets separated from his mother in the mall. That nearly six year old boy discovers that he may be growing up but he still needs his mom. He also remembers what he must do when he gets lost from his parents.

    For Spy enthusiasts this month’s Loot Crate was awesome. It was filled with some really fun things that I personally liked. There was a funny T-Shirt for James Bond. I got my own Lanyard from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. There was a special cover for the Orphan Black comic book, too.

    Then there were items to wear on your wrists. There was a special spy watch and a paracord bracelet. A couple of months ago the crate came with a min comic book book and this month there were two mini books for field notes. Also, there was a Mad Libs that was spy related, too. And to round it out there was a copy of a Ninjak comic that I can download.

    The crate itself looks like a special computer and I am sure that there are some secrets to unlock on it as well.

    I still love looking forward to what Loot Crate comes up with each month. I have to get back to making videos of the unboxings.
