In November, my savvy ladies and I had the opportunity to attend a Penguins of Madagascar Movie Event at the Bronx Zoo. 



It was the day after Halloween, but the Penguins brought an early chill to the day. Super cold but super fun times!  We are so excited to let you know that the Blu-Ray/DVD will be available starting March 17th! My girls enjoyed the movie and liked how the characters connected from Madagascar.BD_PenguinsOfMadagascar_Ocard_Spine

They’re cute… they’re cuddly… they’re back! From the creators of Madagascar comes the hilarious new movie that proves global espionage is for the birds! In Dreamworks’ Penguins of Madagascar, your favorite super-spies- Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private- join forces with the elite North Wind team to save the world.

Here are some fun activity sheets to print out.

Watch the New Minions Super Fan Spot

by Kerri on January 28, 2015

My girls and I are excited to see Minions this summer.  We laughed our way through the first trailer and here is another one that will not disappoint.






The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time.  Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.


But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.


The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.


Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the ’60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda.  Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
