Kidtoons is dedicated to helping parents connect with their kids by bringing family friendly animated movies to the big screen every weekend at participating theaters across the country. Check HERE for a theater near you.
Participating Kidtoons theaters showcase a fun, affordable family friendly matinee movie and provide a family experience filled with entertaining, kid-friendly characters, as well as cartoon shorts, music videos and sing-alongs before each movie. We even have fun giveaways for the kids, such as stickers, temporary tattoos, activity books or toys after every film.
As parents, and as producers of kids’ entertainment, we launched the Kidtoons program to enable families to enjoy movies on the big screen on a regular basis. We know that parents are looking for opportunities to connect with their children, and enjoying the movie-going experience as a family provides easy and fun opportunities for togetherness.
As part of making sure that the content is age appropriate, we've asked an expert, Dr. Donna Mitroff, to talk with you about our movies each month. Check out Dr. Donna’s reviews for additional information about the plot, the level of action and the types of humor in the movie, as well as some thought-provoking discussion points for the whole family.

Playmobil is a brand I had heard of before but had no idea how great their toys really were. Thanks to Playmobil and my blog spark my kids and I got the chance to try out a great toy. The Take along Soccer match.
This toy allows my husband to play with all my kids. It also allows my kids to play soccer even when it's raining.
Over the last couple weeks Ms. H,Ms.L and even Mr.Z have had it out and been playing with it often. It still looks great no wear and tear. Assembly is quick and super easy to. I can say this is a lot bigger then I expected it to be at 84 x 56 x 10cm (LxWxH) it means you can fit 9,5 and 3 year olds around it without fighting. This set also folds up with everything inside to travel or put away. I love the fact I can slide it between a couch and the wall when it's not being played with and it's out of the way.
In my house this is a very well played with item, and because it actually keeps my 3.5 year old busy for an hour or more sometimes. the rules are easy to master. The only problem I have found at all is that if you don't attach the bottom on right when you fold it up, the pieces dump back out and you have to pick them up again, or in my case chase the cat for the soccer ball. I can tell you with out a doubt that this is a great toy and a perfect idea if your kids are in to sports and you travel or even just for fun around the house.
A few things about this set:
"Perfect for summer travel, this compactable and travel-ready Take Along Soccer Match includes a 22 x 33 inch field, soccer ball and other accessories.
To further enhance the soccer experience, the figures have a leg that kicks to propel the ball forward, which helps make playtime more realistic.
There are also goalie figures that connect to goal joystick, which allows kids to control the goalies’ movements from behind the goal net.
The PLAYMOBIL Take Along Soccer Match is ideal for kids ages five to ten; because of small parts it is not recommended for little ones under the age of three."
Playmobil has offered one lucky reader a Take Along soccer match of their own.
