Have you been watching Star Wars Lego Freemaker Adventures?
“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” the animated television series on Disney XD, is set between Stars Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and stars three siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design. Rowan Freemaker is a spunky Force-sensitive 12-and-a-half-year-old with a thirst for adventure; his quick-witted older sister, Kordi, manages the family business and is the glue that holds the family together; ace pilot and charming rogue, Zander, is the oldest brother and the family’s self-proclaimed starship connoisseur; and R0-GR is their refurbished battle droid from the Clone Wars. When Rowan has visions of an ancient and powerful Jedi starship called The Arrowhead, he and his family set out on an epic quest to rebuild it so they can turn the tide of battle for the Rebellion. Together, they explore new worlds, meet new characters and Star Wars icons, and have unforgettable adventures.
In season two of “LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” the three Freemaker siblings—Rowan, Kordi and Zander—have found a new home with the Rebel fleet. But working with the Rebels in their fight to bring down the Empire brings them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC.

What happens when you take the biggest blockbusters in cinema and add it to a legendary building toy company? You get LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape, a five part animated short that has been releasing one episode per a day this week on the Jurassic World YouTube channel and at JurassicWorld.com
I’ve been a major fan of Jurassic Park since I was in high school and got to meet Michael Crichton. Who doesnt love a story about bringing back dinosaurs, the struggle of nature vs man. Jurassic World was a great relaunch of that adventure in my mind but not really what I’d like my younger child to watch.
I’ve just finished watching the first three episodes and it been a blast to watch (Click here to watch the trailer!) They do a great job of blending LEGO humor with the Jurassic World science. This episode is the most pivotal of the entire series, as it shows Indominus rex – the smartest, biggest and scariest hot dog-loving hybrid dinosaur ever created escape. Gather your kids around a screen and enjoy this kid friendly take on Jurassic World… What kid wouldn’t love to see the largest LEGO Dinosaur chasing a guy dressed as a hot dog around?! Click here to watch the complete episode!

In prep for the big event we got some mystery boxes and boy were they packed with some of the latest and greatest toys…
Folkmanis Mini Duckling Finger Puppet was so cute and really cool mission behind it because Folkmanis believes imagination is the key to a healthy childhood, encouraging play and discovery to develop the skills necessary in life. With a soft plush Mini Duckling finger puppet chirps happily with a little shake.
Marc flipped when he saw the new Razor Jetts Heel Wheels which are strap on wheels. Just step up, strap down and take off with these easily adjustable Heel Wheels. Roll with or without spark and transform your sneakers into the hottest way to roll… totally amazing (and yes he’s been skating in our apt)
We were introduced TMNT T-blaster which is a blasters designed to incorporate a Turtle character and darts – the category’s “My First” foam blasters for the youngest TMNT fans!
Mega sent us another really cool TMNT toy the Turtle Sewer Lair. Featuring Tiger Claw, a rope swing, a subway turnstile, and Leo’s Turtle Power and zip‐line to help beat up the bad guys and unleash him to the top of the lair to stop Tiger Claw from escaping with his jetpack.
And a really cool thing called MOD by OgoSport which is a new custom printing service that allows you to customize OgoDisks with high-quality, photo-realistic prints or designs of your choosing.
There were more toys so stayed tuned to later this week

An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing and suddenly viewers are taken on a new adventure that leads to encounters with familiar faces and places that prompt the re-telling of the entire saga. The series offers all of the playful humor that viewers expect from LEGO Star Wars.
The animated content series consists of five 22-minute episodes that re-tell the Star Wars saga in chronological order from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace up through Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
