Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Secrets Revealed

Sunrise in Hyrule

It is no secret that I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’ve been playing it every day and running all over Hyrule. There are many great parts to the game. One thing that I have been having fun discovering has been the sunrises and sunsets all around Hyrule. I capture many of them with the screen capture button on the Switch itself. The world is so expansive and beautiful. I enjoy just walking around. But, what went into making this game and how long did it take. There are so many questions to answer and these three videos do a really nice job talking about the game and its creation. There may be some minor spoilers but nothing too major, it is mostly about what was done to make this epic game that so many have discovered and loved.

How does the world of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild relate to Kyoto? Where did the game’s musical inspiration come from? How were the sound effects for Link’s footsteps created? Which time period in Japanese history inspired the Sheikah Slate? All of these intriguing questions will be answered in this developer video series.

Review – My First Telescope by Educational Insights

My First Telescope
Photo-A-Day #4234

We received a My First Telescope from Educational Insights to play with and review. Andrew really liked the Nancy B. telescope from Educational Insights that Eva got last year and I suspect he was a tad jealous. When I was given the opportunity to review one for him I couldn’t say no. However, I’ve had the telescope for a while and It just so happened to make it work out along with tonight’s Super Moon. Unfortunately we did not get to see the Super Moon because of trees and distance.

The telescope is a cute little one that you put onto a table top. It is colorful and easy to use. It is part of the GeoSafari® Jr. line from Educational Insights and is great for STEM learning. The telescope is Focus Free and good for little ones because they are looking through two large eyepieces with comfy goggle and nose cut-out guide for perfect eye placement.
