This past weekend my family and I had the wonderful experience of attending New York City Comic Con’s Kids Day as special guests of General Mills and DC Comics. It was exciting to meet and chat with illustrator, Steve Scott, and writers Joshua Williamson and Paul Tobin, from DC Comics.

“Combining beloved DC Comics Super Heroes with our kid-friendly cereals allow us to play a huge part in providing families everything they need for a positive start to their day,” said Julie Anderla, integrated communications manager at General Mills. “Our aim is to encourage reading among children by providing them with material they are enthusiastic about.” As a mom who loves to both read and promote reading to anyone who will listen, I cannot even begin to tell you how much this promotion thrills me.
While we were at Toys R Us Times Square this weekend, I saw a new toy that I thought would be somehing great to share. They are called Air Swimmers! Of course the kids wanted them immediately, and Em’s Birthday is coming at the end of the month, so she may get lucky! I thought it was so much fun, too!
Powered by helium, these lighter than light mylar creations fly where ever you would like them to! You control the action with the remote control. Since this is not sponsored, I thought I would just give you a quick peek!
|Father meet son. Son meet father. Although, Charlie(the father), still trying to figure out a way to come out on top, deals when it comes to his new taken on son and tries to make it worth his while. The son, being an avid boxing fan, suspects something is going on, but takes the ride.|
And so the story begins as they get to know each other and the father tries to put his life back on track.
