Since I was born in the early 70s I didn’t get to enjoy the hype of Polly Pockets but I always thought they were so cool! I would see kids discussing their love of the teeny toys and how much fun they were. If you were a fan of this compact phenomenon back in the 90s, then now is your chance to share the fun with your kids and get a look at Polly Pocket’s world.
Mattel relaunched Polly Pocket this year with a new product line accompanied by an animated series to introduce a new generation to the world of Polly. The series follows Polly and her friends as they embrace big adventures in a shrunken size, thanks to Polly’s magic locket. Polly Pocket continues to inspire girls to be capable, courageous and tenacious in their own lives, just like her.
Polly Pocket Tiny is Mighty tour is going to have a ton of activities for both kids and their parents, as a way to celebrate the relaunch of Polly Pocket and for Polly to continue to inspire kids all over the world. [Read more…]
My oldest daughter and I recently had a chance to attend a preview of Dinner Time Stories right here in Nashville! This dining experience has been widely popular in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the UK and Nashville is the first stop on their North American tour.
The state-of-the-art dining concept is based on the culinary exploits of a diminutive animated character known as “Le Petit Chef.” Patrons will follow the 4-inch French chef character through a two-hour, fully choreographed, six-course dining experience that explores the route of Marco Polo. The mood, music, table patterns, exquisite decor and props all change with the chapters of the story to immerse the diner into one continuous 3D projected tale.
Ok so I’m being a little dramatic when I say Tough Mudder tried to kill me….but I’m sure I saw my life flash before my eyes at least twice.
Back in July I shared a post full of Tough Mudder Training Tips. Guess who didn’t take their own advice and was so out of shape it wasn’t even funny! I seriously thought I was gonna throw up a few times but in the end I survived and now I want to share my experience as a 40+ out of shape REAL mom! I mean heck I always keep it real around these parts but I’m gonna be extra real today! LOL
This year’s Tough Mudder in Nashville was held on the grounds of the Nissan Stadium. When I arrived I was surrounded by so many amazing people ready to take on the obstacles. But as I walked around I kept thinking…where the heck is the mud??? Well the owners of the stadium were like “Ain’t no way in **** y’all are gonna tear up our grounds with mud and all kinds of foolishness.” So it was more of an asphalt/dirt/grass Tough Mudder. But in the end if worked out and I didn’t have to worry about where I was gonna rinse off so I didn’t leave my car looking like I’d been playing in a swamp all day.
Mid August in Nashville can feel like a moist sauna on a good day so I was happy that the weather had decided to cooperate and wasn’t quite as humid. There were a ton people in attendance and the races were done in waves. We started around 10am and we finish around 11:30am. Now had I done EVERY obstacle my arse would have easily been there until 3pm…no lie! One of the obstacles was like the monkey bars where you basically go hand over hand. I looked at it and was thought I might give it a try but knew in the end I’d basically look like this.
