Our Review on the Movie:

Spencer loves both LEGO and Star Wars so I figured he would love to check out LEGO STAR WARS: The FreeMaker Adventures Complete Season One. We sat down and watched it during the holiday season. It was nice to have some quiet time together enjoying the show and a chance to relax after the holidays. He kept saying that he can’t wait until Season Two comes out. It came with 6 magnets which we put away with his other Star Wars stuff he collects. It was a nice addition to his collection. Spencer said he enjoyed the action and the jokes in the episodes. You will laugh along with your children.


If your kid is a Star Wars fan and LEGO fan like my son, this movie would be for you.

Well what if your cat had a secret double life?

The Secret Life of Lilykins explores that possibility.
