  • Best Movie Toys! (Part 1)

    The film industry has a lot to offer to kids. From beautiful fairytales to action packed movies, they’ve made them all. And they didn’t stop there. They went on to make some more money by selling the rights to produce and sell toys related to their movies. Genius!
    Here’s a list of some of the awesome toys [...]

    Should I feel guilty about not buying my daughter these action hero toys? With the release of these super hero movies, related merchandise activity is obviously huge!

  • Movies Reviewed

    With a lot of work, one can only watch these many number of movies. I seem to have stumped upon this very good set of ten must watch movies for children. Of these, I have seen only three: Monsters Inc., Up and Penelope and I can vouch for the great direction and scripts of these three.
    And since [...]

  • Movie Review: The Amazing Spiderman

    The Webb's cast ;)! You read it right.. that's the strangest irony of this movie. The name of the director is Marc Webb and he has done an absolutely brilliant job.
    Its been a decade almost since the release of the previous Spider-Man, directed by Sam Raimi, that starred Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. And I [...]

  • A Dialogue from Dr Seuss' Books

    Dr Seuss' books for children are quite famous.
    One dialogue in particular, from his book Sam I am, has achieved iconic status and is now a part of the English urban dictionary.
    So this particular character tries to encourage another character to eat green eggs and ham.
    I place here the quote for you:
    Would you like them in a boat?
    Would you like [...]

  • Movie Review: Shrek

    Shrek Forever After is the perfect sequel..period! (after Godfather, but that's for a different audience..)
    The use of magic (and the characters that go along with it- witches and the like) brought back memories of my childhood days. I loved Fiona's transformation into the leader of an underground ogre rebellion in the alternative world, Puss in [...]

  • Book Review: The Amulet of Samarkhand

    So before my young one can start reading on his own, I'd like to read at least some of the books that have hit the popularity chart of the current generation and educate my son in a couple of years.
    So I talk to you about this young lad and his Djinni who together share 3 [...]

  • Up, Up and Away

    Here is a dialogue that always cracks me up!
    And it is from the movie 'Up'
    Carl Fredricksen: Do you want to play a game? It’s called See Who Can Go the Longest Without Saying Anything.
    Russell: Cool! My mom loves that game!
    If you haven't seen the movie, you should!

  • A few good stories

    Why is everything pink associated with females? Why does everything connected to barbie have to do with girls?
    And must stories always be about princesses? (And what's the fascination with Snow White anyway: Two Snow White movies (english) have released in the last two months!)
    Here are some stories that will trigger the geek gene in your [...]

  • The Ugly Duckling

    This story is for the older children who are able to read long sentences. The one thing I liked about the story is its moral: love and appreciate your true self.
    This is a tale of a duckling feeling inferior to its peers as it doesn't 'appear' as pretty as they do. The duckling looks so ugly [...]

  • Movie Review: Ice Age 3

    I remember taking a bunch of kids for Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Here is my daughter's review of the movie:
    All of us were delighted to watch the movie with its 3D effects. Some loved Momma Dinosaur as she saved Sid from Rudy; some loved their ‘hero’ Buck as he killed Rudy. The girls adored [...]

  • The Secret Ingredient

    It's one of my favourite dialogues from a children's movie and it's quite a profound statement.
    Mr Ping: The secret ingredient is.... nothing
    Po: So you don't add some kind of a special sauce or something?
    Mr Ping: Don't have to. To make something special, you just have to believe its special!
    No prizes for guessing the name of the [...]

  • Children's movies

    I belong to a different generation and my favourite movies may be quite different from yours.
    When I turned 6, I was able to make little sense of the conversations in movies. Thereafter, my uncle and aunt made me and my cousins watch a lot of good movies. Of the ones I saw, I recommend:
    (a) The Sound [...]

  • Karadi tales and Toys

    Ever since my daughter started sputtering words out of her mouth, I have actively slotted one hour a day for an audio story session.
    Karadi Tales was obviously my first choice. Their stories are passionate narratives that actually engage the listener and encourages him or her to picture the scene.
    Karadi has recreated an excellent platform for [...]

  • Toy designer?

    When you work for a bank like me in today’s scenario, what keeps you going is what you do apart from it. I love toys and always have wanted to design them. If I dig deep I think the desire to be toy designer germinated after seeing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, as a child.
    Do try [...]
