GIVEAWAY: The Chicago Toy & Game Fair is back!


Meeting the Dark Side

Yup, it's that time of the year again...TOY FAIR TIME!

That's me meeting Darth Vader at the 2011 Toy Fair. We've attended the Toy Fair in the past and had a lot of fun. And we're excited to attend again this year.

And yes, I'm excited to say that I am offering a free weekend family pass (unlimited children, large families win out!) to one lucky reader.

2) Tweet out this post and make sure to include @veronicaeye so I know you did it
3) Share this post on any other social media outlet. Tag me if you can or leave a link in the comments. Just figure out how I know you did it.
4) Your limit is 4 entries per person. The only reason I'm including social media as a way to enter is I know some people just don't like to leave comments.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
