The Kid Who Would Be King Press Junket- Now In Theaters

 Kid Who Would Be King Press Junket- Now In Theaters

Can you imagine what it would be like to be the King just for one day? Now imagine being a kid who finds out he is the King! That sure some comes with a lot of adventure attached to it. Recently I was invited to The Kid Who Would Be King NYC Press Junket.  Honestly, I felt as if I had become King for the weekend with the fun and adventure our family had. Pre-movie we were treated to King sized shakes at Black Tap in NYC! What an incredible night of yum. The next morning it was time to see the movie.

The Kid Who Would Be King is a fun adventure for the whole family that emphasizes the importance of friendship, leadership, and doing what’s right even in the face of adversity. When Alex (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) discovers Excalibur, the legendary sword in the stone, he and his friends embark on a journey to set things right in England. With the help of Merlin (Angus Imrie/Sir Patrick Stewart), they traverse the countryside and battle demon armies in an attempt to thwart the evil plans of King Arthur’s wicked sister Morgana (Rebecca Ferguson). Morgana seeks to corrupt England and take what she feels is her rightful place on the throne– will our band of young heroes have what it takes to stop her? Find out in The Kid Who Would Be King, in theaters now!

Whether young or old, everyone in our family loved The Kid Who Would Be King! Its roots in the legend of King Arthur (and an enthralling animated sequence narrating them at the beginning of the film) made this exciting twist on a classic tale captivating to all! With powerful messages about leadership, the future, and making sure to make the right choice even when it seems difficult, The Kid Who Would Be King will certainly be a conversation-starter in addition to simply being fun family entertainment. The film has it all– magic, humor, and plenty of heart– I’m sure that you and your family will enjoy it too!
We we also treated to a great press conference with the cast of the movie including Patrick Stewart. Each and every one of the cast shared their ideas on the movie and what it was like to be part of this great film. Medieval Times was on hand to show the children how to use a sword as if they were king! To end this amazing weekend we headed to FAO Schawrz where the children tried their luck at pulling an actual sword from the stone!

Liberty Science Center Sherlock Holmes and Doc Mc Stuffins Winter Exhibits

Liberty Science Center Sherlock Holmes and Doc Mc Stuffins

Recently our family was invited to Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ to check out the new Sherlock Holmes and Doc McStuffins Exhibit.

We were thrilled to adventure through Sberlock Holmes which is an interactive adventure.Our family was transported into the world of Sherlock Holmes’ London location to a world filled with innovation and experimentation in the field of forensic science.

While being hot on the trail of your own case, you’ll learn how the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes, solved his cases! You can be just like Sherlock Holmes and see how he was a scientific expert ahead of his time and how he  used seemingly trivial observations of clues others missed to solve mysterious crimes. These were the crimes solved in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous books.

Our family enjoyed following the footprints left behind by someone. We were able to examine the blood splatter patterns, decipher Morse Code and also send codes to one another. We discovered missing items, and above all used our powers of observation to crack the case! This is an absolute must do for any Sherlock Holmes fan! Excellent exhibition!

 

There is also a Junior detective solving version available for the little ones!

Our family also was delighted to switch gears and head over to the newest preschool exhibit, Doc McStuffins. The littles were able to put on actual doctor’s lab coat, pick up a stethoscope, and perform check-ups on toys! What an incredible opportunity for the preschool set. Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit! Is a hands on interactive experience that will have any child (secretly) learning as they play!

ALEX AND ANI Releases New Holiday Bracelet Benefiting Give Kids The World Village #HolidayGiftGuide

ALEX AND ANI Releases New Holiday Bracelet Benefiting Give Kids The World Village

Most of my family and friends have at least one piece of Alex and Ani jewelry or have heard about it. As for me, I do proudly own a beautiful, “Let it snow” triple bracelet given to me by my oldest son.  Recently our family and blog are honored to partner with Give Kids The World Village,  the Central Florida nonprofit that provides free dream vacations to critically ill children and their families.

I was thrilled to find out that ALEX AND ANI released a new Christmas-themed bangle to benefit Give Kids The World Village. I cannot think of a better gift to give or receive this Christmas season. The Christmas Car bangle will be sold until January 31, 2019 and can be purchased online or at ALEX AND ANI retailers around the country. The company, a dedicated supporter of Give Kids The World, will donate 20 percent of each sale to the nonprofit resort.

ALEX AND ANI has raised over $546,000 for Give Kids The World since the partnership began in 2014. It has helped fund more than 200 wish trips for critically ill children and their families. The free, weeklong trips include accommodations, meals, transportation, theme park tickets and more. “We are so grateful to ALEX AND ANI for everything it has done to help the children and families we serve,” said Give Kids The World President and CEO Pamela Landwirth. “Its CHARITY BY DESIGN bangles are both beautiful and meaningful. ‘The Christmas Car’ follows in this tradition and is sure to become a holiday favorite.”

Available in a sparkling gold finish, The Christmas Car features a red Volkswagen Beetle carrying an evergreen tree on its roof. It is part of ALEX AND ANI’s holiday collection and is the fifth bangle created to benefit Give Kids The World. “The road to the holidays is always paved with excitement (and evergreen needles,)” writes ALEX & ANI describing its Christmas Car piece. “Overflowing with packages, hot cocoa, cheerful songs, and warm feelings, it’s a caravan traveling full speed to Christmas bliss. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.”

The Christmas Car is a great addition to your jewelry collection, makes a great gift for friends and loved ones, and provides a way to give back to a charitable cause.
