Are Ads Reading Your Mind?

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

  Have your kids ever begged for something, or you saw a new product you wanted to try, and the next thing you know, you’re miraculously seeing ads for it everywhere???

Honey, I Shrunk the Race Track

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

Most of the times when I played with miniature vehicles and action figures as a kid (and as an adult if we’re being honest), I’d be sort of above it all, like a looming god of make-believe, or at least like a third-person view in a video game. Sometimes, though, I got down there. Hugging […]

Cute-to-Nope Chart for Bugs

Posted by , under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

  I’ll admit that this isn’t necessarily “a little kid’s” chart, and that some of us adults still react to some bugs cartoonishly, levitating dramatically before sprinting away in a cloud of smoke, ready to set everything on fire.

Kid’s NERVOUS Reaction to STAR WARS Episode II: Attack of the Clones

Posted by , under VIDEOTAPE

He was so nervous about EPII he actually rejected watching for a few months. Because of spoilers, he knows the basic story of the Prequels and was very anxious about seeing Anakin fall to the Dark Side. After we saw The Phantom Menace, I didn’t understand his lack of excitement to watch the next movie. […]

QUIZ: 9 Alcohol Cheats in Animation

Posted by , under NOTEBOOK

Brought to you by responsibility.org for their TalkEarly campaign.   In the past, animated films and shows were, um… rather boozy. A review of every G-rated movie created from the 30s up to 2000 said 47% showed alcohol consumption, and in that same period about 9% percent of all cartoons did as well. That’s a […]
