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.

I love The Secret Life of Pets. It is an adorable sneak peek into the lives of our pets…with a nutty adventure as two dogs learn to get along and accept each other. Granted this film is a few years old, but it is still one of my favorites. Thankfully, our sneak peek into the lives of out pets didn’t end with the first film. The Secret Life of Pets 2 debuted on digital August 13, 2019 and will debut on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand August 27, 2019.
Thanks to UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT I received a review copy and was able to watch my favorite pups, Max and Duke, as their world changes in the best and scariest ways.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 is all about the changes Max and Duke must go through when a new member of the family is born. For a dog that doesn’t like kids, he sure loves Liam. In fact Liam means so much to Max that it leads Max to fear the world and stress when his little owner is not around. Duke attempts to help Max relax but the world is a dangerous place and Max must protect his kid.
This gets even more difficult on a farm when the family takes a vacation. Cows, chickens, sheep and the crazy unknown is almost too much for Max, until he meets Rooster. Rooster is my favorite character in The Secret Life of Pets 2 and he is voiced by Harrison Ford. This is Ford’s first ever role in an animated film and he picked the perfect character to voice.
Rooster says it like it is. There is no whining, there is no excuse. In his mind, just do it and get it done. So when Max comes to visit the farm talking about therapists, fear of the unknown, and the possible dangers his kid could be in, Rooster is not impressed. My favorite scene:
Rooster: Hey, what’s that kid doing in the cage? Something wrong with him? He got the fever? Max: That’s Liam. He likes to run. Rooster: So let him run. Max: Well, Liam’s super fast. We blink, and he’s up a tree. Rooster: So then your kids up a tree. What’s the problem? Max: Well, he could fall. Rooster: He might. Max: And then he hurts himself. Rooster: Oh, so he got really high up, in this hypothetical tree? Kid gets hurt, he learns not to do it again. You know how many electric cords I’ve chewed? Max: Like multiple cords? Rooster: One. It shocked me. I walked backward for a week, but I never chewed a cord again. Max: Well, that is great for you, and it explains a lot. But I like to protect Liam from everything. Rooster: Well, that’s you, and you’re wrong.
Secret Life of Pets 2
Talk about summing up the world of parenting in a fun cartoon. I almost spit my drink when I first heard this conversation and I still laugh over the walking backwards part. I truly wish there was more Rooster in the film.
While the scenes with Rooster are my favorite, there is a lot more to The Secret Life of Pets 2 than Rooster and his epic parenting tips. We have the amazing adventures of Superhero Snowball and his sidekick Daisy,, the time Gidget becomes a cat, the wonderful world of catnip, and so much more. The lives of these animals is far from boring. I will admit, I laughed through most of this movie and I think The Secret Life of Pets 2 is just as good as the first.
This movie also comes with two fun short films. The first stars Agnes, Edith, and Margo with our favorite pill shaped characters, the Minions! Now they want to earn scouting badges and go on an outdoor adventure. Except with Minions, nothing is ever easy and their scouting trip involves poisonous berries, bears, and flood.
The second short is about Gidget becoming Super Gidget in order to save the love of her life, Max, from an army of squirrels. Gidget must use all her strength and smarts to stop their dastardly deeds and find some way to get Max back home.

After discovering the deceitful, egg stealing green pigs in the first movie, our flightless feathered friends are back in an all new adventure, Angry Birds Movie 2, which is now playing in theaters. This time Angry Birds and pigs will have to team up against a new threat that puts both islands in danger. Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown) to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely superteam to save their homes.
In anticipation of Angry Birds 2 coming to theaters, Sony Pictures has released several printables that we can print and create. There is a DIY pinwheel, DIY Party Popper, Straw Covers, Coloring Pages, and masks. To get these printables click the images below and save the PDFs to your computer. Then print and create for tone of Angry Birds fun.
The Chuck Pinwheel requires the printed template, 1 sheet of construction paper, scissors, straw, pin, and glue. Now we glue the sheets together, cut along the dotted lines, form the pinwheel, and pin it to a straw. With just a little wind, the pinwheel will begin to move almost as fast as Chuck.
The party popper is a fun little craft to share treats that rocket or explode out of tubes. We will need the printed template, ribbons, cracker snaps, scissors, and stuffing of your choice. All we have to do is cut out the template, glue on the cracker snap, roll the template into a tube and tie off each end with a ribbon. Then let the fun begin.
Forming an Angry Bird party requires some fun decorations. What better way to decorate than to cover straws with fun Angry Bird Movie 2 images. Simply cut out the circles, cut along the small lines, and slide the straws through the two holes. On a side note, these would also make awesome cupcake toppers or stickers.
The packet below contains 10 fun Angry Birds Movie 2 coloring pages. Simply click the image below, save the PDF, print the pages, and color.
The masks are coloring pages as well while also being a fun craft. Puncture holes where indicated, tie strings into the holes, and now we can wear the mask that we have colored.
This summer is the prefect time to celebrate our pets, and what better way to celebrate our cuddly family companions than with The Secret Life of Pets 2 coming to digital tomorrow and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, and DVD Aug 27. This wonderful family fun video explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?
To celebrate, Illumination has released several pet friendly recipes our animals are sure to enjoy:
Daisy’s Crockpot Dog Food,
Duke’s Doggie Donuts,
Captain Snowball’s Super Salad.
The first 3 recipes are for the dogs and Captain Snowball’s Super Salad is for all the superhero rabbits. If you are wondering why there are no recipes for the cats it’s because Chloe probably didn’t want to share them…or Illumination forgot about the cats. I blame Chloe.
To get the recipes click the image below and save the PDF to your computer. Then print and create to make your pets extremely happy…you know…as long as they are a dog or a rabbit.
The final chapter of the 22 movie MCU series is given a fitting title, Avengers: Endgame.After 11 years, everything we have endured side by side with our favorite characters is coming to an explosive end with a nearly 3 hour cinematic not-to-be-missed story. It is already released on digital but will be on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand Aug. 13.
WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW
I will admit, I love/dislike this film. I love the characters, the graphics, the story, the hope, the gains, and the emotions that this final movie managed to induce. It is great to see all of my favorite characters interact as each story line comes to a head and collides to form a cohesive end. I am still teary-eyed that this is the end of the old, however, it looks like it could be the start of something new.
At first we learn how the team has dealt with 50 percent of the animals and humans missing from the planet. It has certainly placed many of our characters into a slump, some more than others…Poor Thor.
Despite the fact that many of them have had to come to terms with a severe loss in their life, they still show how heroic they are by putting aside their troubles to attempt a one last, all -in move to save the world and the universe from their past failure . The team gets back together!
Of course, the only way to fix the world is to use what destroyed it in the first place, Meaning, once again, the infinity stones are on the list to find. But the only way to do that is time travel. Our heroes must take a trip in the past, which is now their future, so that they can save their future from the past…yeah..that made sense.
In going to the past, it also means that past enemies, past friends and family, and past events will be in the way of their elected quest, and this includes Thanos.
All of their adventures come together in the final scene when Thanos once again threatens the world, and this time, he plans to wipe out all of the terrains. This is where the dislikes come in. But I don’t want to say too much since it would spoil a lot. I know I put a warning above so I will simply say, I don’t like death, especially when it is characters I love. I always feel like the story could have gone another way, where everyone lives and they all stay together.
However, even with my dislike, I still give this movie 5 stars. It really kept my attention through the ups and downs, I laughed and I cried, and it was a fitting conclusion to the 11 year movie series…with the exception of a few things.
Be sure to get all of the fun crafts, printables, and recipes I have posted featuring Avengers Endgame by going to my blog here.
