I love playing with my Nintendo DS so I was really excited to test out the new game, Miitopia. I had watched the trailer video for this game many times and already had it on my wish list. When it arrived I asked my mom to open it up right away. I then played it non-stop for about two days. It was all I could think about! This game is so much fun and I know any kid will love it!
Even though I work from home, I enjoy getting dressed up quite often. But if I am being totally honest here, I just don’t have the time to go to the dry cleaners. That is where Dryel comes in. With Dryel, I can basically turn my house in to a dry cleaners! Thanks to Dryel, I can wear my nice dresses whenever I want. No need to rush to a dry cleaners, just toss it in a bag with a cleaning cloth for a few minutes and I am good to go!
We area gaming family. At least three or four times a week we all sit down together and play a board game. Don’t get me wrong, we love playing our video games together, but sometimes a good board game can bring you close together. I remember playing games with my mom and sister all the time growing up, and they are some of my fondest memories. I hope to create that for my girls. One of our favorite gaming companies is RoosterFin. They have a long list of fun family games – many of which we own. Our newest favorite is Wizard Roll.
One of the shows that my girls LOVE is PJ Masks. This show is super fun and airs on Disney Junior. Since the moment it came out, it has been a hit in our home. It focuses around three kids that become superheroes at night. There are some other kids that become villains. This is one of the shows that I can sit and watch with my girls and get totally in to. It is funny, entertaining, and even teaches kids some pretty great lessons. PJ Masks: Time to Be A Hero is out on DVD now – and we highly recommend it.
When we found out that we were going to be at Walt Disney World during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we were thrilled! We went a few years ago and have been dying to go back. When we booked our first trip as DVC members for the end of August, we thought for sure we were going to miss the 2017 party. But luck was on our side and it turns out we will be able to attend MNSSHP! Right away, we started planning our costumes. It took some debating, but we finally settled on one of favorite Disney XD shows – Star Vs. The Forces of Evil!
The Smith family loves all things related to comic books. In case you have not already figured it out, all four of us are huge geeks! We live for that kind of thing. After a long day and the kids are finally in bed, one of our favorite things to do is binge watch a good show. Not too long ago, my husband and I discovered DC Legends of Tomorrow. We binge watched season one, and so we were thrilled to receive an advance copy of season 2! We started binging it right away – and were not at all disappointed!
One thing all kids like is stuffed animals. I will admit it, I even have a few stuffed animals that sit on my bed and the couch in my office. I asked my daughters to come up with a list of 5 stuffed animals that they have that are their favorites. It was basically no contest for them – these are their top 5!
I am really looking forward to Marvel’s Inhumans coming to ABC in September. The Inhumans comic book series is one of my favorites and has been for a long time. The characters are all amazing and the story lines always have me hooked. Black Bolt and Medusa are one of my absolute favorite comic book couples. Now, I know many people out there don’t know much about The Inhumans. I put together a list of my favorite trade paperbacks that are sure to get you hooked on them – and also ready for the ABC TV Series!
My youngest daughter is going off to all day Preschool starting in September. Because of this, we are really taking advantage of the summer. We have traveled around a lot – and have spent many afternoons packing up lunch and having a picnic together. This is one of our favorite things to do on a nice warm day. Living in upstate New York, we have to enjoy the nice weather while we can.
Welcome to the 2017 Back to School Essentials List! Mama’s Geeky is bringing you everything that you need for a successful year at school! Back to school can be stressful for parents as well as kids – so I have put together some items that will make getting ready easier and quicker!

My girls LOVE everything My Little Pony. Most of their favorite movies are Equestria Girls movies and so they were thrilled to learn the Equestria Girls are back for a magic-filled triple feature! We received an advance copy of My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Magical Movie Night and my daughters were over the moon! We watched it almost immediately – and then again and again. I admit, I really enjoyed this as well! It is a great family movie for any My Little Pony fans!
From the moment we saw the first trailer, my girls’ were anxious to see Boss Baby. When it hit theaters, we took them to see it on opening weekend. They were jumping and down while we waiting to go in and could not. Wait through the entire movie, they had smiles on their faces. They kept asking my husband and I if we saw certain parts of the movie and wanted to make sure that we did not miss anything. After Boss Baby ended, they asked us if they could watch it again. Right away. Every single time we went to the movies after that they asked if we were going to see Boss Baby.
My girls are obsessed with Kate and Mim-Mim. We watch the show all the time. They also have several toys that they play with and re-enact their favorite episodes. So they were thrilled to hear about the latest DVD release – Kate and Mim-Mim: Super Kate. This DVD features four of our favorite stories from the popular kids series “Kate & Mim-Mim”. We received an advance copy and have already watched it over and over and over. It quickly found a home in our mini-van for longer car rides.
As you probably know by now, I have two young girls. They are 4 and 6 years old right now and they are huge geeks, just like their mama! Because of this, they are big in to comic books and super heroes. One of their favorite shows and movies to watch is anything that has to do with the DC Super Hero Girls. I love this as well because it gives them great figures to look up to – and of course, I love anything comic book related as well. The DC Super Hero Girls are strong, independent women, so who better for them to place on a pedestal? The latest DVD release, LEGO DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain, hits stores on August 8th – and it is amazing!
Summer is in full swing, and what better way to spend the last few weeks than playing video games with your family? My husband and I both have Nintendo 3DS’ and my daughters have Nintendo 2DS’. I cannot even explain how much I enjoy a lazy Sunday with the 4 of us lounging around the house playing video games together. We like to race in Mario Kart – and of course Quick Link Battle in Pokemon Sun and Moon. We also help each other fill our Pokedexes by trading rare Pokemon to each other. Because I love these systems so much, I want to tell you about a couple fun and exciting new releases!
