; Daddy Mojo-A Dad Blog on parenting, life and poop culture

I’m participating in a campaign and this is a paid post.  All thoughts are my own and my go-to (lame) costume for years really was the ‘tourist’.  Halloween is nigh, it really is.  I know you look at the calendar and think that you’ve got all the time in the world.  However we both know that September will breeze through and October is a blur, suddenly it’s Halloween and you’re using that ‘tourist’ costume that wasn’t funny the first time your wore it.  Buy Costumes kicks off its second annual Orange Season on Tuesday, September 2.    Orange Tuesday runs through November 4 and features the Orange List, top costumes, party themes and treats – and a one day, Black Friday­esque sale with item­specific “Orange Busters” and site­wide savings of 25 percent off everything Halloween.

More cosplay photos from Dragon Con in Atlanta

by Daddy Mojo on August 31, 2014

Holy cosplay!  Dragon Con yielded  an amazing amount of things to see & do-and it’s not even over yet.  After two days at Dragon Con here are some of the best images that we’ve taken. What was great about today’s visit is that we met a large amount of families and kids in costume that really drove home what a family friendly event Dragon Con can be.  Enjoy the photos!

Photos from the Dragon Con Parade

August 30, 2014

This parade was massive. It lasted almost 90 minutes and for the most part was very kid friendly. There was a 5 year old next to me that got a bit freaked out when the horror folks came through. However, I showed the photos to my wife and she got a bit freaked out too.
The costumes in the Dragon Con Parade are realistic, creative and otherworldly.

Come jump on the Little Elliot, Big City Blog Tour

August 30, 2014

The book is super cute and immediately infectious. The sentences are short enough to allow young readers time to grasp each word while looking at the big pictures that fill the pages. We had a chance to send some questions to the author of Little Elliot, Big City, Mike Curato to ask him about the book.

Taking the kids out for a pre-school picnic with @FritoLay #Ad

August 30, 2014

Once we got to the park we unloaded our snacks, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, water bottles, various Skylanders® bags, Frito-Lay chips, sunglasses and Fire Bone Hot Dog. We were a video game version of a NASCAR driver, but entirely OK with it as long as the kids had fun and kept their hands off of my Cool Ranch Doritos Cool Ranch chips.

Kang & Kodos! finally have their one-shot on Bongo Comics

August 29, 2014

It’s a silly, all ages comic book fun that I enjoy more that our 5 year old. Even if 9 year olds have never seen the Simpsons they’ll enjoy any of their comic book adventure. There is not a running story, so readers can jump in on any issue and feel right at home.

Hero Cats of Stellar City #1-all ages comic that isn’t all cats

August 28, 2014

The art in Hero Cats is sharp and fun. There isn’t too much action in the first issue, but it sets up what will happen and introduces young readers to the cast. It should be enough to inspire their curiosity enough to at least get them to issue 2, at which point the action will need to pick up.
Girls will certainly like the first issue of Hero Cats more than boys. If there is more action in the second issue then it’ll cross over to boys or girls.

KRE-O Transformers Age of Extinction Grimlock Street Attack Set review

August 27, 2014

The two Kreons have a magnet on their back. When you move Grimlock close to an unsuspecting Kreon he will get sucked up into his mouth, a little dinosaur snack, if you will.
The KRE-O Transformers Age of Extinction Grimlock set works with other major brands too. It retails for $19.99, so its price point is reasonable for an almost 200 piece set. The other thing that is unique and handy for parents about the KRE-O sets is that they’re packed in cardboard boxes that have a handle. It’s like a little Michael Keaton taking his KRE-O suit.
