LEGOLAND Discovery Center Is Coming to Philadelphia @ldcphiladelphia #LDCPhilly

Attention all LEGO fans! There is a new LEGOLAND® Discovery Center coming to the Philadelphia area in the spring of 2017 and we couldn't be more excited! As you know, we are huge fans of all things LEGO, and having a LEGOLAND® close by for our kids to play is going to be simply awesome. 

Groundbreaking Ceremony at Plymouth Meeting Mall 

This past Tuesday, Oct. 25 they held a groundbreaking ceremony at Plymouth Meeting Mall for the 33,000-square-foot location.   First-grade students from nearby Plymouth Elementary School were on hand to dig their shovels into the pile of over 50,000 LEGO bricks spilled by a Turner Construction dump truck to officially mark the start of construction.  {Did you see it on social media? That's a lot of LEGO bricks! So fun!}

TROLLS Free Family Fun Events #DreamworksTrolls

My family is excited about the upcoming release of the movie TROLLS to theaters November 4th!   There are some upcoming free family events in the area celebrating the release that I'd like to share with you.

Dreamworks Trolls
From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation's Trolls, a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.  

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embark on a rescue mission full of adventure and mishaps - trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done. 

Utilizing music to further the film's narrative, the Trolls soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake and features five original songs including songs by Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani in addition to a number of classic hits from the 60's - 80's.  

Free Family Events:

Deptford Skating Center 
510 Deptford Ave.
Westville, NJ 08093

When:  Wed. Oct 26th

Kate and Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish {Holiday Gift Guide} #sponsored #holidaygiftguide

I received a copy of Kate and Mim-Mim A Christmas Wish for review.  All opinions are my own.

Kate and Mim-Mim A Christmas Wish DVD

In the story “A Christmas Wish,” which is a special extended adventure, Tack’s letter launcher is used to send Christmas wishes to Santa. After blasting off for the North Pole, the letter launcher malfunctions, landing in the wrong location and destroying the beautiful Christmas tree Kate and Mim-Mim decorated with their Mimiloo friends. With their Christmas tree ruined and no way to send their letters to Santa, can Christmas be saved? 
In addition to “A Christmas Wish,” this DVD features two more exciting tales in which Kate and Mim-Mim go snow bowling, get stuck inside an ice cave, and try to find their friend Chilly in order to prevent the Winter Waterfalls from melting.A CHRISTMAS WISH” will be available on DVD October 4, 2016.

Both of my daughters love Kate and Mim-Mim because of the fun adventures they go on together.  I mean, who wouldn't want their favorite stuffed animal to come to life and bring them to a magical land?   

In "A Christmas Wish", Kate and Mim-Mim try to send letters to Santa, but the letter launcher lands in the wrong place.  Kate isn't sure how to get the letters to Santa, but with the help of her Mimiloo friends, she finds a way to save everyone's special Christmas wishes.  There are some heartwarming moments that show the spirit of Christmas and true friendship. 

My girls loved all 3 episodes {a total of 45 minutes}, including the music video, which they asked to watch over and over again.  This DVD will certainly get you in the mood for some Christmas magic!

Where to Buy:   You can look for Kate & Mim-Mim A Christmas Wish in stores and on Amazon.com for $6.99
