My love of Playmobil runs deep - a toy line that I didn't personally have as a child, but one that I've long-admired as among the best toy brands in history. In the course of more than four decades of success, one thing Playmobil never really did until recently is enter the world of pop culture licensing. Launching into those waters among their hit Ghostbusters collection is one based on the world of DreamWorks DRAGONS - the hit Netflix Original Series spawned from the popular How to Train Your Dragon films. An Official Selection in my 2017 Holiday Wish Guide™, Playmobil DreamWorks DRAGONS Hiccup and Toothless brings the famous duo together in a classic style!
Halloween is almost here, and for 2017 my friends at DreamWorks Animation have served-up a fresh batch of free printable activities from some of their kid-favorite Netflix Original Series. There's printable pumpkin stencils for Spirit Riding Free and DinoTrux, and from Voltron: Legendary Defender there's patterns for creating masks, a sword, and The Cow of Voltron!
Ready for some Halloween action?
It's almost time for Frank Castle to have revenge. On November 17, Marvel's The Punisher makes its long-awaited debut as a Netflix Original Series, the latest following Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Defenders. Jon Bernthal stars as the title character, a heavily-armed former Marine-turned-vigilante known throughout New York City. On a mission to punish the criminals responsible for the murder of his family, Frank Castle will soon find himself involved in a military conspiracy far bigger than he could possibly imagine. Check out the new trailer below!
It was just about a year ago when I first mentioned Super Monsters, a new series geared toward the preschool (and a bit older) set in which the children of monsters learn to navigate the social waters while coming to grips with their powers. Think Monster High, but in preschool - with a bit of that PJ Masks daytime/nighttime vibe, and you're on the right track. Now, just in-time for Halloween, the first season of Super Monsters has made it's debut as a Netflix Original Series, and straight out of the gate it's a good one.
I've written at length about PJ Masks over the course of the past two years, and what's really cool is that the legend of these young heroes just continues to grow as more families discover the adventures of Catboy, Gekko and Owlette. Despite airing daily on Disney Junior, this is an example of a program that's not actually produced by Disney (it's eOne and Frog Box), so it sorta stands on its own. Now, for those who may not have seen it (or those who have and just want to access it at any time), PJ Masks has come to Netflix with the entire first season streaming now!
