{Review} Hasbro Angry Birds Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bounce Game

Image
The giveaway has closed, the winner is Wendy R!  Thank you to all those that entered!
Angry Birds and Star Wars have combined much to the excitement of my two boys! I am so excited to share these two items with you that I received from Hasbro for my personal review. 


I surprised the boys after school, with a really cool box, clearly labeled with a Hasbro Angry Birds "May The Fourth Be With You" label. They instantly knew that sheer joy was inside this box, they just had to contain themselves while the box was opened! Inside was an Angry Birds Star Wars Foam Flyer and an Angry Birds Star Wars Millennium Falcon Bounce Game! Can you say Hasbro Family Game Night?
The classic Star Wars characters; like Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, and Luke Skywalker, get a new makeover as Angry Birds. The Angry Birds Star Wars Foam Flyer, of  Luke Skywalker, was a huge hit as we setup red cups as a tower, to see who could knock off the green "pig" golf ball! The kids each took a tu…

Hallmark Hall Of Fame presents "Remember Sunday"

REMEMBER SUNDAY
A lonely down-on-her-luck waitress meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk and thinks that maybe, finally, she’s met “the right guy.” The more Molly (Alexis Bledel) gets to know Gus (Zachary Levi), the more she’s intrigued by him. But she’s also mystified, and sometimes miffed. Gus seems really absent-minded, really preoccupied. Is there already a girlfriend in his life? Is he harboring some big secret? What is his problem, Molly wonders.
Well, Gus’s problem is that three years ago he suffered a brain aneurysm. He can remember everything that happened in his life pre-aneurysm, when he was a star astrophysicist; but his memory grasp on everything since then is virtually non-existent. Every day is a brand new day – literally – for Gus. From the moment his alarm clock goes off, his life is directed by Post-it notes. You can imagine the complications that arise when Gus meets Molly.
As her love for him continues to grow, he discovers that he can indeed fall in love with …
