DreamWorks Trollhunters Now Avaibale on Netflix! #StreamTeam

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.




Today is the first day of Christmas vacation for my kids and no joke, the "I'm bored" comments are already starting. How they can be bored when they have a brand new playroom with countless toys and video games is beyond me, but there you have it. So with days and days (and DAYS) ahead of us before school starts back up, I'm left with the task of keeping them busy and happy. Thankfully we have some snow still on the ground to play in, but when they come in from the cold we also now have the highly anticipated DreamWorks Trollhunters to stream on Netflix! I have to say I am super excited about this new Netflix Original Series as it looks like something the whole family will enjoy.


From the limitless imagination of acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes a tale of two worlds set to collide in the epic saga DreamWorks Trollhunters. When ordinary teenager Jim Lake Jr. stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil, Jim is determined to save the world – right after gym class. A must-see viewing event for the entire family!




Now the real challenge for us is going to be NOT binge watching all episodes in two days. My goal is to make it last through winter break so we have a new episode to look forward to every day. Lucky for us that today is not only the first day of vacation, but the first day of Trollhunters! We can't wait to get started.




Make it a Minecraft Holiday with Best Buy

I have to admit, when my boys first got into Minecraft a few years ago, I just didn't get it. OK, fine, I still don't really get the appeal if I am honest, but all four of them love it as so I make the best of it. Minecraft is a game about placing blocks (or removing them) to build awesome world. Players can play in Creative Mode with unlimited resources to build whatever they want or play in Survivor mode where they have to fend off enemies. I think what my boys love the most is that they can play on their own or together, all though playing together some time causes arguments. And by arguments I mean they go into each others worlds and destroy things. Sigh. Now I still might not quite "get it", but I do love that it is a family friendly game that they all enjoy.




One of the most popular items I have seen this holiday shopping season is the Xbox One S Minecraft bundle. I first saw these pop up on Black Friday ads back in November and immediately new I had to get one for our family. (I bought mine fromBest Buy on Thanksgiving). What's so great about this bundle is not only that it comes with all the Minecraft games preloaded, but also that the new Xbox One S plays 4K Blu-ray™ movies. That feature alone sold me. This bundle is available right now at Best Buy for just $249.99. which is a $50 savings off the regular price.


 


Now if the Minecraft lover in your life already has all the games, there are plenty of Minecraft toys and collectibles that he or she would love. There are mini figures and playsets, card games and even drones, so there is something for everyone in every price range. Take a look at all of the Minecraft Gifts available at Best Buy.

What Minecraft gifts are you grabbing this holiday season?

Return to Star Hallow with Netflix #StreamTeam #GilmoreGirls

I am a Netflix Stream Team member and have been given a Netflix membership to help facilitate my posts. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.




If you watched television in the early 2000's, you surely have hear of the hit show Gilmore Girls. And if you say that you haven't, well then your lying. Even people who didn't actively watch the show knew of it and it's extreme popularity as it was a cornerstone for the CW Network for 7 seasons. Now, 16 years after we were first taken to Star Hallow, Connecticut, Lorelai and Rory are back in a 4-epside miniseries on Netflix: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.




Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life has been streaming on Netflix since November 25, 2016 and my social media stream have been filled with both new and old fans of the show watching it and falling in love with the characters all over again. And it seems like once isn't enough for some of the hard core viewers.

Have you had a chance to watch it yet?




About Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life consists of four memorable chapters from the lives of Lorelai, Emily, Rory and countless more Stars Hollow stalwarts. The story is told through four 90-minute chapters -- each spanning one season: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall -- and brings back to life everything from the quaint corner diner to the dreamy Dragonfly Inn to a fast-talking, quick-witted mother-daughter love story unlike any other.
