Mill Creek Entertainment recently released some more great movies. This month, there were several great kids movies as well as documentaries. Check out my 5 must have Mill Creek new releases for August here.
My girls and I love to binge watch together on Netflix. It has kind of become our thing on rainy days this summer. I think I enjoy the kids shows, just as much as they do. One of our favorites is Dawn of the Croods – so we are thrilled to share that Season 2 has been added to Netflix today, August 26! I think we were all secretly hoping for rain, even though the summer is coming to a close, so we could binge watch the whole season! If your little ones (or you) are fans of the show like we are, grab your free printable coloring pages here that feature your favorite Crood characters!
I am a huge gamer, as most of you might know, and I am a big fan of the Ratchet and Clank video game series. My husband is as well and because of this, when the Ratchet and Clank movie was announced, we were thrilled! In fact, we took our young daughters to see it when it came out in theaters. We all really enjoyed the movie – in fact, my 5 year old says it is her favorite movie and asks to watch it all the time. I was excited to receive a copy of it on Blu-ray so that we could watch it at home again and again. Without giving anything away (because I want you to experience it like I did for the first time), I have put together a few reasons why fans of the Ratchet and Clank video game series will love the Ratchet and Clank movie.
The Oceaneer Club and Lab are the “kids only” parts of the boat on the Disney Cruise Line ships. They are for ages 3 to 12 (must be fully toilet trained) and are full of excitement! Parents can sign their kids in and out as they please so that they can enjoy some adult time on the cruise. My girls loved these areas and were quite upset when I would go and pick them up. I had to practically beg them to come to dinner with me the first night. Our next cruise will be a 7 day, and I wouldn’t be surprised if my husband and I end up going to dinner once or twice without them.
The Wild Life looks like such a cute movie! My family saw the previews when we went to see Ice Age Collision and my girls have been asking to go see it ever since. We will be sure to bring them opening weekend, September 9, 2016. I love all of the animal characters, and I know they will be my daughters’ favorite part. I am guessing that Rosie will be my favorite – who do you think will be yours?
As most of you know, I am a huge gamer. Ever since I was a little girl and I got my first gaming console, I have been hooked! I don’t discriminate – from board games, to consoles, to mobile – I love all forms of gaming! One of my favorite games to play is Skylanders, so of course when they launched Skylanders® Battlecast in May, I downloaded it right away. Skylanders Battlecast is the latest mobile game in the Skylanders franchise – and it is so much fun! I personally enjoy the single player campaign, but there is an online multiplayer option as well. In this mobile trading card game, you collect both digital and physical Skylanders Battlecast cards to build the ultimate team and bring them to life in epic online battles! Simply scan physical character cards with a mobile device camera to add them to your in-game deck.
Dinotrux recently celebrated it’s first birthday and I have a great way for you and your little ones to help celebrate! My daughters love watching Dinotrux on Netflix. We have watched both seasons that are available all the way through several times. So, of course, they were super thrilled to have their own little birthday party for their favorite characters. Grab your printable party pack and celebrate Dinotrux’s first birthday with your little ones!
I was lucky enough to go see the live action version of The Jungle Book before it came out in theaters while I was in LA for the Captain America: Civil War premiere. Once it was released, I took my (then) 4 year old to go see it on a special mommy/daughter date. She loved it – and I was so pleased. She talked about it for weeks and when the Blu-ray version arrived in the mail this week, she opened up right away and asked if we could watch it. She wanted to show her little sister, who is 3, and to be honest, I was nervous that she might be scared. But she wasn’t at all!
Can you believe that summer is almost over? Many kids have already headed back to school, and some will be going back to school soon. A lot of families, including my own, are having one last vacation before summer ends and everything pumpkin begins. Life of a Southern Mom and a few fabulous bloggers have teamed up with Diono to bring you an amazing giveaway to help get your little ones in the car quicker, easier and safer.
Bring the party home now that the hit animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie is available from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment! I took my daughters to go see this opening weekend with my husband and we all loved it! The Angry Birds Movie is based on the most downloaded app of all time (nearly 3.5 billion downloads). The film that catapulted to #1 at the box office in the U.S. and more than 50 others countries takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, hot-headed Red, speedy Chuck, and the volatile Bomb have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up in order to save their home. Boasting an “A” CinemaScore (viewers under age 25) and featuring even more of the breakout, fan-favorite Hatchlings, don’t miss the film that quickly became one of the highest-grossing video game based films of all time.
