As I look back at Season 1 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and how much I recommended it for parents to watch with or have their kids watch, I feel there needs to be a pause button on younger children continuing on to Season 2. Today on the Geeky Parent Guide, as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Clone Wars (October 3), let’s explore why I believe kids like my own, ages 4 and 5, might want to have their parents watch the second season of the hit show before your kids watch it.
As a parent, I have felt apprehensive about letting my four and five-year-olds attend a pop culture convention. Will they feel overwhelmed by the large number of people? Will they get scared by amazingly detailed costumes? Or will they see something I’m not sure they’re ready to see with adult-themed displays?
The following is an interview with Nicole D’Andria, Marketing Director and Submissions Editor of Action Lab Entertainment, as well as creator and writer of the independent series, Road Trip to Hell. This interview takes place at Baltimore Comic-Con 2018, where Senior Contributor S.T. Lakata sits down with D'Andria to discuss the convention, various Action Lab titles, and her own creative works.
Here at Fanbase Press, we are always excited to share all things related to the wonderful world of science and technology, as our space explorations match the stories we’ve read or imagined as kids. Today, we are very happy to spend time with a rocket scientist from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
Cthulhu is not only hard to spell, but it's also a pretty great way to create a collection of Lovecraftian stories. In Cthulhu Is Hard to Spell, many writers and artists came together to produce an anthology that builds the imagination in a way that can reach a variety of readers.
It has been a very busy and productive year for those in the field of space exploration. So much so that the Geeky Parent Guide has already covered NASA’s Goddard Visitor Center, the International Space Station, and big events like the Falcon Heavy launch and the Tesla Roadster in space. Today, we are going to focus our attention on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “Founded by Caltech faculty, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is a division of Caltech and is the leading U.S. center for the robotic exploration of the solar system . . . currently responsible for conducting missions with more than two dozen spacecraft.”
As a parent, it’s not always easy or possible to watch everything before your kids plop down in front of the television. It’s definitely always helpful to seek out reviews or get feedback from friends who have seen what your kids want to watch, which helps to guide your path to either a "Yes," "No," or sometimes even "Maybe Later."
The 10th anniversary for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) animated film is here, and it’s quite easy to wrap up my experience of watching it recently for the first time.
As we venture further into summer, with San Diego Comic-Con 2018 in our rear-view mirror, it’s perhaps a perfect opportunity to get in the car with our kids and see the sights, and in this case, some things you won’t normally find anywhere else. As a child, I was fascinated by things that were larger-than-life and the idea of seeing a Guinness World Record (GWR) was always exciting to discover in the news.
It’s the last day of San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re here to keep you excited, even if the energy levels are dropping from you, your partner, or your kiddos. There are still plenty of activities to dive into, including world premieres, LEGO action, a costume ball, and sessions for the artists at heart.
