Charlie was born in 2010 which makes him part of the iGeneration (kids of millennials usually) but he’s an old soul and has long lamented that he didn’t grow up in the 80s.
Duracell is back with another campaign to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network to help #powerimagination of the kids in hospital. Zacharie reviews Furby Connect in the latest The Zacharie Show episode.
So .. Hatchimals are a thing, eh? It’s Tamagotchi meets Furby meets ZOMG so hard to find. Everyone’s saying they’re the toy of the holidays this year, but thankfully my boys aren’t on board with it. Phew….
I like to take videos every now and again of the boys as they play. Simple secret footage of them goofing along and brothers playing nicely. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s perfect.
The LEGO instructions from 1974 are real. They’re authentic. They’re awesome. They’re a throwback to when LEGO was built in your imagination instead of a booklet of instructions. LEGO is not a girls’ toy or a boys’ toy, it’s a toy for your imagination becoming whatever you want.
My family’s favorite way to donate toys at Christmas is via the Calgary Firefighters Toy Association. Drop a toy at a firehall, climb on a firetruck. Give and receive. It’s the best. Here’s what I hope the boys are learning about charity at Christmas.
How do you do charity at Christmas? We drop off toys to the Calgary Fire Department’s toy drive. The boys pick toys they love and share them with other kids. Oh, and then they get a private tour of the firehall.
