Buy your tickets to The Lego Movie before they sell out on Fandango

One thing in life you cant do is disappoint the kids – well at least we try not to disappoint the kids. One simple fact here in NYC is that the movies sell out – especially great kid movies.  They’re few and far between when a good kid movie comes out.

We all knew The Lego Movie was going to be BIG! My son has been jumping up and down about the commercials on TV for weeks now. Well there is one simple way to make me look like a hero instead of a zero (if we show up and its sold out)… I simply use Fandango.

FandangoLegoCroppedTo help families and LEGO fans alike secure their seats in advance, Fandango has launched collectible THE LEGO MOVIE-themed gift cards, available at retail, exclusively at Target stores (and online at Fandango.com).  The gift cards can be used to purchase movie tickets onFandango.com or Fandango’s free mobile app to more than 22,000 screens across the country.

More about the THE LEGO MOVIE Fandango gift cards… they are available only at Target stores and can be found in the Toys & Games section amongst the cool THE LEGO MOVIE toys, also exclusive to Target.  The featured toys include 17 different building sets that enable children to bring THE LEGO MOVIE to life, helping Emmet and the Master Builders save the LEGO world from Lord Business. Imagination and creativity will run wild with these sets, which represent the most exciting and memorable scenes from the film.  Four different LEGO MOVIE-themed gift cards (including a Valentine’s Day card) are also available for purchase on Fandango at www.fandango.com/lego-movie-gift-cards

THE LEGO MOVIE, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and LEGO System A/S, stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.  The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.   Emmet is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

For more information on THE LEGO MOVIE and other family movies, along with the latest trailers, age-specific movie recommendations and ticketing options, check out Fandango’s “Family Room” at www.fandango.com/familyroom.

Keep an eye out on Facebook this coming week as we’ll have a great Fandango Gift Card giveaway thanks to  @TheLEGOMovie and @Fandango  | #TheLEGOMovie and #FandangoFamilyRoom.

Target has teamed up with Dove Men+Care and the NCAA to keep guys smelling fresh #TargetNCAA

I love my NCAA football mainly cause I went to college where the team was really about hockey – so when it comes to college football I root for the teams I want to win – when I need them to win.  I like to root for Wolverines and the Fighting Irish when those games are on you can usually find me with a child nearby enjoying quality sports watching time as I describe the game to my five year old.

Target has partnered with Dove Men+Care, AXE, Degree Men and the NCAA to keep guys smelling clean and fresh all season long.

Put your skills to the test and play the “Save Your Season” QB Challenge for your chance to win an Xbox One (how awesome is that?!) and ask your friends to play too. Send smack talk e-cards with your friends that root for the biggest rivals and show how you and your team reign supreme. Then, get your favorite Dove Men+Care, AXE and Degree Men products to keep as fresh as your game.

Get to Target this NCAA season with great offers on your favorite products and get rewards! You’ll receive a $5 Target gift card when you buy any three participating Dove Men+Care, AXE or Degree Men products from 10/20-11/9. Now, even if your team may stink this season, you will smell like a winner!
