They don't really grasp the legacy or importance just yet, but our girls first experienced the world that Fred Rogers created thanks to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on PBS Kids. Now, there's a new documentary that takes a look back at how it all began, and why the spirit of Mister Rogers Neighborhood is exactly what the world could use right now. Focus Features' Won't You Be My Neighbor is winning audiences to become one of this summer's surprise hits (99% "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes), and now The Rock Father™ has teamed-up Fandango and the all-new Fandango FanShop to invite you back into the neighborhood with a fun Mr. Rogers prize pack. Two (2) lucky readers will receive bundles including a a Funko Mister Rogers Pocket Pop! Keychain plus a $20 Fandango Gift Card. Won't you be our neighbor?

The 1970s and 1980s were without a doubt the "Golden Age" of COLORFORMS for kids like me. Aside from the classic peel-and-stick vinyl variety of reusable transfers and backgrounds, I distinctly remember my cousins and I having a ton of fun with the Rub n' Play transfer sets where you could make scenes from shows like KNIGHT RIDER and MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE by using a pencil and some imagination. While the Rub n' Play has been gone for awhile, Colorforms has changed hands a few times over the years, most recently finding a home with Out of the Blue Enterprises - a company co-founded by someone I've mentioned before here on the site, Angela C. Santomero, creator of DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD, WISHENPOOF!, SUPER WHY! and more. Just in-time for the Holiday Giving Season, Colorforms are back in a big way, with three types of sets: Take Along (MSRP $5.99) Create A Story ($9.99) and Big Wall Playsets ($24.99). Like the sets of years ago, Colorforms feature licensed characters from some of today's biggest pop culture icons like MINIONS, FROZEN, THE AVENGERS, DOC McSTUFFINS, PAW Patrol, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and SPIDER-MAN.
