Netflix #StreamTeamWhen it comes to learning, sometimes kids need a reminder that learning new things is fun - something that I’m told happens more often with older kids - ones that sit in that “tween age.” While my girls (The Rock Daughters™) are still much younger, we’re really working to embrace that sense of wonder, exploration and curiosity that both have. For Addie, our oldest, there’s been a growing tendency to conduct “experiments” on her own, and she generally pulls little Finn into the mix. Things can get messy, but that’s just fine as the girls develop their own first-hand methods of witnessing action and reaction… even if that means I might spout off like David Seville with a frustrated “Addddddie!” once in awhile (that’s my problem, not the kids’). With a lot of what they’re doing, the girls are engaging in a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) realm without even knowing it. Embracing those interests at a young age (or refreshing them at an older one) is why it’s cool to see a program like PROJECT Mc2 hitting the scene.

Dinotrux: A Kid's Dream Come True...

Netflix #StreamTeamFact: Most kids love dinosaurs. Another Fact: Most kids also love trucks, cars, trains, planes, boats and other things that are mechanical and/or move. Bonus Fact: The previous two facts are simply claimed by me, with no form of research and/or scientific proof to back that up. Hey, I didn’t question it when all of a sudden Optimus Prime had Grimlock and a bunch of other Dinobots running around back in 1984, so why would kids in 2015 question the existence of a race of “giant creatures that are half dinosaur, half construction vehicle and all awesome?” I figure most won’t…

Netflix Stream TeamGet ready for more adventure with King Julien, as five new episodes of DreamWorks Animation's ALL HAIL KING JULIEN are headed to Netflix. Premiering April 3, Madagascar will welcome Timo, Madagascar's resident scientist and newest member of the tribe. "A prickly, sarcastic tenrec (similar to a hedgehog) who conducts experiments and builds things out of the various junk that washes up on shore, Timo is also Julien's go-to "tech guy" -- though as far as Julien is concerned, Timo is a wizard who uses his "science-magic" to fix anything." Timo is voiced by David Krumholtz (This is the End and TV’s “The Good Wife”). King Julien also discovers something very close to my heart, coffee. Episode descriptions below...
