Calling all Spider-Man fans! Whether you are a die-hard fan or a family looking for a free way to entertain your aspiring superheroes, stop by Sony Square NYC and be surrounded by all things Spider-Man. In anticipation of the July 7th U.S. theatrical release of Columbia Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Sony Square NYC is providing an experience worthy of a standing ovation. Visitors to the showroom will get the chance to step into Peter Parker’s shoes (and leap off a crane to swing through the air in pursuit of Spider-Man’s nemesis The Vulture) in the Spider-Man: Homecoming VR experience on PlayStation®VR.
I have been reading Marvel comic books for as long as I can remember. One of my favorites has always been the Inhumans. I tend to really like the people from other planets, hence why Guardians of the Galaxy is also another one of my favorite teams. Something about Black Bolt though, has always intrigued me. The fact that by just muttering a word, he can destroy so much, is pretty brilliant. When I first heard that Marvel was going to do something with the Inhumans, I was thrilled. Then we were told the movie was being put on the back burner. All of a sudden, an Inhumans show on ABC was being talked about and I was beyond excited. Medusa and Black Bolt are one of my favorite comic book couples and I cannot wait to see what happens with them.
My oldest daughter is big in to trading card games and she is only (almost) 6 years old. Because of this, Yu-Gi-Oh has quickly become one of her favorite shows to watch. She has quite the collection of cards and is actually really good at the game. There is nothing like getting to watch your favorite characters and creatures come to life on the TV though. That is why she was super thrilled to get an advance copy of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Dark Side of Dimensions – available now on Digital HD and coming home on Blu-ray June 27th.
I have two young daughters – ages 4 and 6 – and they are huge Strawberry Shortcake fans. I admit, I may have had a little bit to do with that seeing as I have been a fan since I was a little girl. The fact that they are making new shows (and that we can still find the old ones I used to watch) has really solidified my love for the series. Cuddling up on the couch with them and watching a few episodes brings nostalgia to a whole new level, as I remember doing the same with my mom.
One of my favorite shows when I was younger was Power Rangers. I may or may not have played Power Rangers with my friends and family every chance I got. I even recall being glued to the TV and crying during certain episodes. Now that I have kids of my own, I am excited that there are Power Rangers shows for them. Because of this my whole family was really excited to see Saban’s Power Rangers when it came out. My daughter and 4 and 6, so we decided to watch it with only the 6 year old, and it was a hit!
Everyone loves the Minions! My family sure does. We first met them in Despicable Me and now they will appear in Despicable Me 3! We cannot wait to see what laughs they bring this time. This third installment of Despicable Me is highly anticipated by many minions fans. To help celebrate the release of Despicable Me 3 The Hopping Bloggers have put together an awesome prize pack for one lucky reader! This package is worth over $100.
My daughters are big gamers, just like their mama. They have a tablet that my husband and I have filled with great games for their age that they share. The newest game we downloaded is Noddy Toyland Detective. This app is based on a show that they watch on Netflix all the time. It is one of their favorites so you can imagine how excited they were to see a game where they could play as Noddy and solve cases! They couldn’t believe they could meet characters from the TV show including Bumpy Dog, Revs, Pat-Pat and the Panda Pockets, Fuse, the Naughticorns! This game quickly became one of my favorites too.
Summer is finally here – but not every day is going to be perfect and sunny. Let’s face it, some days you are going to have to stay inside. It could be raining, or just too hot. I have two little girls (ages 4 and 6) and I know how hard it can be to entertain them sometimes. Here are some screen free ideas that we do together when we just can’t get outside.
We are Disney fanatics in our home and have really been looking forward to see Cars 3. On opening weekend, we decided to go see it, and are very glad we did. My husband and I really enjoyed the movie and thought it shared a great lesson for kids and society in general. However, our girls were maybe a tad young (and tired) for it – they are 4 and (just turning) 6. I do think this is still a must see movie, but for the younger kids, perhaps waiting until it is on DVD and Disney Movies Anywhere is best.
My husband and I rarely get a date night so we are very particular about the movies we choose to see in the theaters. The House, which stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler, is one of those movies. From the first time we saw the trailer we knew this was a “must see in theaters” type of movie. It looks hilarious and right up our alley, not to mention the entire cast is filled with our favorite actors.
