Picking up where the hit 2015 animated film left off and building upon their enduring friendship, this coming-of-age buddy comedy follows fearless Tip and overenthusiastic Oh as they navigate the crazily cohabitated human and alien world they now live in. Along the way, they find themselves on larger-than-life adventures, meeting outrageous new friends and discovering what it truly means to be a family.
Every Saturday night, I allow my daughters (ages 3 and 5) to have a sleepover in one of their rooms. My oldest has a TV in her room so they usually choose to sleep there. They are allowed to watch one DVD before bed – and I think this is their favorite time of the week. I love to watch them cuddle together as they watch. They almost always pick one of our many NCircle Entertainment DVDs. This makes me happy because they are educational and fun for the girls at the same time! We recently got two more – Dino Dan: Dino Busters and Mack & Moxy: The Great Helpee Heroes – and they are now the top picks from them! My 3 year old just LOVES Mack & Moxy!

A young girl finds an unlikely and uplifting friendship with an adorable monkey in this charming, light-hearted film. Katie has lost interest in her school, her friends, and gymnastics following the loss of her mother. But her outlook changes in the summer when she is asked to monkeysit Gibby, her science teacher’s Capuchin monkey. Taking care of the monkey challenges Katie and reorders her life in a big way, and Gibby’s happy-go-lucky personality renews Katie’s zest for life. Gibby helps her with gymnastics, renewing friendships (including finding a potential boyfriend) and overcoming her nemesis, a mean girl who is out to beat Katie at everything.
San Diego Comic-Con just wrapped up this weekend and there were some incredible trailers released! I put together a list of my top 5 movie trailers for you. Enjoy!
This weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Chadwick Boseman (T’Challa/Black Panther from “Captain America: Civil War”) unveiled a sneak peek of a bonus feature clip from the in-home release of “Captain America: Civil War.” This is the first piece of bonus material to ever be revealed from this year’s biggest blockbuster and it is amazing! The clip is from the 60-minute, behind-the-scenes featurette titled “United We Stand, Divided We Fall – The Making of Captain America: Civil War Part 1 & 2.” It showcases how Marvel selected Black Panther and features interviews with all-star cast members who explain what it was like to welcome an all-new character to the MCU family. I am dying to watch the rest of this. As most of you know, I am a HUGE Marvel fan, so this is a big deal for me.
My girls love WordWorld! It is one of our favorite PBS Kids shows. I am a big fan too because my girls have started to learn to spell small words because of it. It teaches them to sound words out and I have noticed improvements during reading time with my 5 year old. My 3 yer can even read small words like dog, duck, and pig (which I think is because of the characters in WordWorld). I love that all of the objects and animals are made up of their letters – a brilliant concept!
