Ever since Broxton saw the previews for Russell Madness, he has been asking when we would see it.  I was excited when it showed up, as I knew it was going to be a great movie night!  Broxton was so excited that we could not wait for night and we popped popcorn and had a movie day to watch it.  The fact that the monkey is the monkey from Night of the Museum had Broxton thrilled, but I was secretly excited to see the monkey (from the Hangover) and to hear the voice of the dog, since he was voiced by the kid that plays Adam on The Goldbergs!  
The movie was a good one, great family entertainment!  We meet a family that inherits the old family wrestling arena that has seen better days... only stipulation is that they have to mak…

When Broxton was younger, he was totally obsessed with Jake and the Neverland Pirates, to the point that he went as Jake for Halloween one year.  We have several Jake books in our library and thanks to a new set of board books being released on March 31st, we have more to add now!

Although Doc McStuffins is a female main character, Broxton still enjoys for me to read the Doc books to him.  I think it is because he enjoys seeing Doc taking care of all the stuffed animals, because he likes to do that as well.  I love the books because it shows how to love and care for your toys!  
We were sent the new box set of board books featuring our favorite little Doc, Doc McStuffins!  (This set will be available for purchase March 31st.)  In this set, we have 4 books that feature Doc and the gang. Doc McStuffins - Doc on Call has 4 books inside a cute little carry case.  The books included are:

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. If you know us at all, you know that we have been wrestling fans off and on for all of my life. Broxton has been to several wrestling events and enjoys watching them live and on TV. When I saw that The Flintstones were teaming up with WWE, I knew this was going to be a DVD that Broxton was going to love.
