HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY SAX!!!!!!
Today was my son's 1st birthday! My wife and I said we weren't going to do anything big for his birthday. He has tons of new toys already, so we said NO toys. BUT, when I swung by the nearest Toys R Us and saw these new Curious George toys, I couldn't resist. I mean it's his FIRST birthday for Pete's sake. As I looked at the Curious George merch. on the shelf, I had a flash back of me holding my first rememberable bedtime toy. For me it was a Popeye plush with the plastic arms and head. I loved him to death and took him everywhere. There's always a signature toy that kids remember from their childhood. Who am I to deprive my son from his?.... At least that's the story I gave my wife when she gave me that "you bought that toy for yourself" look. Lets face it, the toy is really COOL. My family and I can't wait to go see the movie.
Oh! I forgot to mention that these wonderful toys were from Marvel toys. That's right. MARVEL. They've started their own toy company. Great start!
I really hope the animated movie does GREAT at the box office. I like CG animated movies as much as everybody else, but I can only hope that this traditionally animated feature will burst the over saturated CG bubble hitting theaters this year. Isn't it Ironic that this lone 2D character in a sea of 3D features dons the letters "CG" on his P-jays? Funny.
Even more cool news! Todd McFarlane Toys announces that they will be releasing Hanna Barbera figures this summer!
