Not all monsters from Wetmore Forest run around and have fun in sporadic bursts of amusement. There are some that take life very seriously and seek the comforts of silence and solitude. That is what makes Wetmore Monsters amazing; there are so many different kinds. One such monster is Chester McFreckle.
Our next Wetmore Forest resident is Chester McFreckle! If there were such a thing as a serious Pop! Monster, Chester would be it. By nature Pop! Monsters are playful and rambunctious but Chester likes to stand out buy chilling out. Smart and stoic, this little antlered fella is more likely exploring alone or wandering a hidden trail, then to be frolicking with is furry friends. His natural curiosity often leads him into sticky situations but his intuition and smarts usually save his tail in the end.
I received a kit full of awesome Spider-Man Far From Home goodies and activities the whole family can do…well most families can do. I learned something about my family with this Spider-Man kit…we are unable to levitate tinsel or make square bubbles. These are talents beyond our capabilities. I believe they require a Wingardium Leviosa moment…anyone have a magical wand? If you wish to try these activities with your family, I am including the instructions at the bottom of this post. Simply download and create.
This Spider man kit came with everything we needed to make and complete the crafts. So we decided to try the Levitation craft first. As instructed we tied all of the tinsel together with two knots 5 inches apart. Yes, we measured it for accuracy. I then took the large PVC pipe and started rubbing it on the back of my head. I figured since I have rather thick, curly, and long hair, I would be the best to form a static charge.
So there I am rubbing this tube on my hair back and forth charging the electrons and slowly my hair begins to send out small shocks with each touch. That has to mean the tube is charged. I pull the tube away only to find that my hair is now standing on end as if I had my hand was on one of those weird plasma balls.
However, this static hair was gonna be worth it if we could get this tinsel to float. With my crazy hair, we hold the tub and drop the tinsel into the PVC pipe. Aaaaand, *plop* it falls to the bottom. Once again I try rubbing this tube back and forth and dropping the tinsel. Again nothing. After several tries, we had to walk away, my hair just could not handle another rubbing hahahaha. If you try and succeed, lets see the pictures! I have to see this in action. If only for the sake of my hair.
Our next failure was the square bubble. We tried to create this amazing unnatural feat but each time the bubble popped, fell through the cube, or just would not sit. The Unnatural was unable to be natural in my home. We had fun trying and ended up just blowing a whole bunch of bubbles everywhere. I would post a pic, but it was a mess…so on to the next, which happens to be a success!
My family can bend light! Oh yes, we are experts at this. Well, sort of. It took putting a few holes in a bottle to get it right. First the hole was too high, then it was to big. We had one hole that was not round enough and just sprayed water everywhere. Glad the kit included so much tape, because otherwise this would have been a failure as well. However, after a puddle in the kitchen and several needless holes we finally figured out the craft! Check out the 10 seconds of success below.

Let me tell you a story; a story about the amazing Wetmore Forest by Funko. This forest features monsters of all shapes and sizes and their skills are as diverse as their looks. With Snuggle-Tooth as their leader, these monsters have been able to live in peace and safety…with the occasional adventure and fun.
I have been making coloring pages of these adorable Funko Monsters and my next featured monster is Butterhorn. Check out her story below:
Butterhorn’s many wonderful tales are told to the monsters of Wetmore forest as the light fades among the Pines and fauna, and the littlest ones start to yawn. She is the storyteller of the group, charged with sharing the legends and stories of past and present. She is wise and gifted in the ways of nature. She speaks the ancient language of the fir trees and knows each and every creature roaming the vast rainforest by name.
Bitterhorn’s most difficult feature to make had to be the horns. I wanted to make sure that those horns had the right curve and details. After a few tears, several walk aways, and a couple of desires to toss the computer across the room, I finally succeeded. I am very happy with how the adorable little Butterhorn turned out.
I colored Vutterhornr a teal-ish color, but there are several color palette that Butterhorn has been seen in. However, I am sure even a rainbow wouldn’t be out of the ordinary in the Wetmore Forest so go crazy and color her how ever you would like.

The Dragons are back in an all new animated series Dreamworks Dragons Rescue Riders. A whole new generation of viewers will get to see Dragon Riders soar through the sky with their best friends. Honestly it is very exciting, especially since we get to see the only two kids in the world that can speak Dragon, Dak and Leyla! Dragons Rescue Riders will be coming to Netflix September 27 with 14 half hour episodes! Check out the images and the Trailer below to get a first look at the exciting new series.
NOTE: SPOILERS BELOW
Dragons Rescue Riders is all about a pair or twins, Dak and Lelya, who were raised by dragons. Thankful for the dragon’s help, Dak and Leyla, along with their dragon friends Winger, Summer, Cutter and Burple,, pay the kindness forward by rescuing other dragons they find in trouble. Eventually, their rescue expands to rescuing humans after they find a home on the island of Huttsgalor.
Each episode of Dragons Rescue Riders features epic rescues that take creativity, courage, friendship, and teamwork. In fact, teamwork is probably the most important skill to have as a rescuer. Dak and Leyla often demonstrate how teamwork saves the day. For example,in the episode “Deep Trouble,” it takes teamwork to figure out how to exit an impossible cave maze. By working together, everyone escapes alive and safe.
This exciting Netflix series brings back everything I love about How to Train Your Dragon, which happens to be all the different dragons. With all the rescues, we get to see all kinds of Dragon species. For example, in the episode “Boo to You” we get to see a Slink Wing, which has red eyes and chameleon like scales. It is so cool. Oh how Fishlegs would love this.
While I am missing Hiccup and Toothless and the rest of the original gang, the new characters, Dak and Leyla, are wonderful characters that connect to a younger audience. Leyla is often the smart analytical one that thinks before she acts. Dak does things on the fly. He often uses his instincts and gut feelings to get the job done. Because of these different characteristics, Dak and Leyla do clash at times, but they always find a way to work together.
I am sure many of the How to Train Your Dragon fans are going to love this show. It might be kiddish, but still adorable and fun to watch. The kids in the audience will love the characters, the stories, and the dragons. Be prepared for the desire to binge watch all the episodes in one sitting.

Funko released several adorable little POP monsters that live in Wetmore Forest. Most of them are so adorable that I have started creating coloring pages out of the ones I like the mist. Today’s coloring page is of Tumblebee.
I think I may relate most to Tumblebee because he loves to tumble aimlessly. That is usually my natural state, me tumbling around in a daze. Although, unlike me, Tumblebee looks fantastic in stripes. Check out his official story below.
Tumblebee’s Story: He’s at home in the misty meadows of Wetmore and gets his name from the bold stripes across his furry body and his love for tumbling aimlessly among the wildflowers. He is well liked among the other creatures of Wetmore because he is kind, caring, and honest. Everyone loves Tumblebee! They know that through rain and snow and highs and lows he can be counted on to protect you from danger and give you a bear hug and a big laugh when you most need it.
Funko has created an adorable set of Monsters that come from Wetmore Forest. The series includes several figures such as: Tumblebee, Pickles, Chester McFreckle, Grumble, Sapwood Mossbottom, Angus Knucklebark, Mulch, Butterhorn, Bugsy Wingnut, and Snuggle-Tooth.I find them so cute!
Because they are so cute, I have decided to turn the residence of Wetmore Forest into coloring pages. I simply can’t help myself/ I am starting with the leader of the monster tribe, Snuggle-Tooth.
Snuggle-Tooth is the leader of the monster tribe and an adventurous daredevil monster, as you can see from the video above. She doesn’t quit when the going gets tough. She is also honest, loyal, and always there for members of her tribe. She stays on the lookout for trouble, but will always take a minute to have a little fun.
