Movie Review: Toy Story 3 (3D)

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a sportsaholic. Anything sports related on TV I watch, and any local sports event I’m there. But when it comes to movies, I can’t say I’m anywhere near the same way. Going to the theatre to see Toy Story 3 in 3D wasn’t my typical viewing pleasure, but I have to tell you that this movie, in my mind, is a must see. Without giving away too many details, this is an animated movie about the life of toys who are no longer played with because their owner went away to university. The 3D version of the movie really makes the characters come to life and jump out at you on the big screen. If you have seen the first two Toy Stories, you will be familiar with the main characters such as Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the gang. Toy Story 3 has some new characters and plot twists that are fun for both kids and adults.

For someone who isn’t the biggest movie fan, I say that this was one of my favourite movies that I’ve seen in a long time. It was witty, funny, cute and highly entertaining. It also wasn’t super long (which I find that many animated movies are these days).

I give it 4.5/5 stars and recommend that you see it while it’s still in theatres!

World Cup fever at Stork Craft!

Even though the Canadian national soccer team did not qualify for the World Cup, we still have many soccer fans within the Stork Craft office. Loyalties are divided:

-USA is naturally a popular choice within our US office as well as our VP of Sales & Marketing Dan, though he can’t be that big of a fan if I just had to inform him that the US scored in injury time to advance to the round of 16 :)

-Portugal is the team of choice in our warehouse, as we have a few people of Portugese descent. This is also Taylor’s team of choice because he really likes Nando’s Portugese flame-grilled chicken.

-Brazil is Debbie, Jorge, Carolina and Melissa’s favourite team and is always a safe bet to advance far in the World Cup.

-Mexico is my team of choice as I’ve had several relaxing warm weather vacations there

Some other countries Stork Craft employees are cheering for: Spain (Annie), South Korea (Ed), England (Daniel).

They grow up so fast…

It’s really amazing how quickly newborns grow both physically and mentally. I’ve been able to watch my niece Kacey mature quite a bit physically in her first 8 weeks. I’ve noticed her get taller and put on some cute baby fat. She’s now allllllllllllllllmost fitting into her onesies. Her appetite has grown considerably. She’s starting to down bottles like it’s nobody’s business. Lots of milky burps. Even mentally she is much more aware. Her eyes are open more, and she loves staring into the lights. She’s always looking all over the place, a very curious girl! I’m really looking forward to the coming months and seeing her grow even more.

Rockin’ Roll

Jennifer, who won the Stork Craft Rocking Horse a few months ago, has been kind enough to send us pictures of her son and his brand new toy!

In Jennifer’s words: ‘Here is my little one “Rockin” on Christmas on the adorable Stork Craft Heirloom Rocking Horse I won on sweet Pierra’s blog: www.jollymom.com. Thank you so much for sponsoring this giveaway. My son loves his “horsey” and I love that it is so well made that he will be able to pass it along to his own little ones one day:)’

Thanks again!
Jennifer Hamilton

Jennifer, we hope that your son enjoys his rocking horse for years to come.
