Entertainment 8/3: kid edition

Standard

The kids have been getting the majority of the entertainment these days, just thought I’d share…

I think I watched Rainbow Brite 10,000 times (the ‘star stealer’ movie, especially) and so when I thought of it, I knew I had to see if Netflix had it for the girls. To date we’ve had the movie 3 weeks and the girls choose it almost daily as their movie break/treat… they freak on it. LOVE it. Pretend they’re the various characters (I usually have to be bad guys murky & lurky). It’s fun to re-visit this favorite of my youth and see them enjoy it so.

Our last trip to the movies was Despicable Me. Enjoyed by all – it had some great lines and Rebecca was especially in love with the minions. She wants a minion for her birthday, but the only ones I’ve seen for sale are INSANELY expensive.

thought: Target how about you sell just a few less Toy Story items, get some variety. Maybe a few minions!!! Not that we didn’t LOVE Toy Story 3, just that the market is way over saturated with toys from it at the moment. I expect it’ll stay that way until after Christmas.

What’s next?

We’re currently in negotiations over Cats & Dogs. I admit the first wasn’t bad… but did we really need another one? And can I please wait for video? The children say no, it’s VITAL to their happiness to see it, and I caved. It was bad. I felt sorry for Chris O’Donnell who played the main human role. *shudder* The children, however, assure me it was AWESOME and now wonder if our dog is a secret agent of some sort.

That’s all the fun I can handle for one week – until next time, have a lovely day!
