Shout! Factory will be releasing the epic adventure tale of Prince Killian and The Holy Grail, a story set in the 12th century on April 29th. This DVD brings one of Spain’s most popular comic book heroes to life. My family enjoyed watching this DVD, although it has scenes that are violent. The story is about the time of the Third Crusade in Palestine.

My son got this Space Torch toy as a gift from our friends. We really appreciate this as it opened up his enthusiasm to learn more about the night sky. To learn about the amazing things that can be found in the night sky, we checked out the Get Started Astronomy DK book that has lots of colourful pictures, advice, tips and in-depth fascinating information about stars, planets and galaxies visible from Earth.

These new toys from Toy State is in time for a new season to provide children with new opportunities to explore, imagine and play. This cute, green Volkswagen Hatchback is a freewheeling licensed VW vehicle. When we pop the hatch it reveals a light-up rotating speaker bed with 3 unique designs and a different song for each. This Road Rippers toy is wonderful for children over 3.
I am very excited to be part of the Hyundai Drive Squad, and will be bringing the inside scoop to some of Hyundai’s amazing initiatives, vehicle tips and tricks for the road, giveaways and more. Hyundai came to Canada in 1983 where it set-up its first overseas subsidiary, a mere 16 years after Hyundai Motor Company was founded in Korea and three years before it entered the U.S.

I enjoy using Blurb to create my own photo books. This is a wonderful way to share stories, moments, travel pictures, recipes and more with family and friends. I like the ease of using blurb themes to make personalized books. These books are a wonderful way to express our memories and cherish special moments.

Everyone in my family loves spring! Although, we don't celebrate Easter we enjoy decorating eggs, and each year I like to explore different techniques. My children join me during this craft/ science activity. This year, we explored the Ukrainian method of painting eggs called pysanky. This Eastern European art of egg decorating is similar to batik, and the method requires the use of wax and dye.
