Matty Collector Watchmen action figures

Watchmen Action Figures Worth Watching

Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen is one of my favorite comic book series of all times. This 12-issue mini-series from DC Comics is just an amazingly realistic look at a world with legitimate superheroes. At the time, it was a real departure from the more lighthearted comic books coming out. I devoured the series and wanted any merchandise I could find for it. Sadly, there wasn’t much beyond a few scant Watchmen T-shirts, a …

10 year blog annviersary

It’s My 10 Year Blog Anniversary at Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy!

The other day I started getting a few messages on LinkedIn from my contacts congratulating me and wishing me a “Happy Work Anniversary.” I thought that was a little odd since I started my current day job in December. So I reached out and asked what exactly they were congratulating me on. “Your blog. Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy,” is what they said. Huh. I know LinkedIn sends reminder messages to users sharing all sorts …

Ace’s Favorite Dog Toy is Not What You Think

It’s been about a year and a half since we welcomed Ace into our home. And you better believe we’ve spoiled the little guy. The mini schnauzer with oodles of personality has way too many toys to count. Squeaky plush ducks. A Captain America dog toy or two. Some Star Wars shenanigans. Yes, that is a Baby Yoda dog toy, thank you very much. Not to mention a few dozen (no joke) bouncy and squeaky …

9 Wordle Games You Have to Play

I’ve always loved word games. Word searches. Cryptograms. Boggle. Scrabble. Just about any word puzzle you can think of, other than crosswords. So it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of Wordle. Yes, I’m one of those many Facebook users who fill their daily news feed with green and yellow squares. I. proudly share my Wordle score with my friends and followers. For those keeping score at home, my current streak is 47. The …

Playmobil A-Team van group shot

The A-Team Van Crashes into Toy Shelves Everywhere

Playmobil has come a real long way since I was a kid. The biggest adventure I had was pitting my construction workers against my sister’s Playmobil knights. (The construction workers always won. I mean, c’mon, a dump truck versus some horses?) But recently, the toy company has put out collector-loving sets based around ’80s favorites such as Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and Scooby-Doo. And now? Well, now they’ve upped the adventure level exponentially with …

McDonald's Surf n Turf

The McDonald’s Surf + Turf Should Truly Disgust You

So McDonald’s has a new menu hacks section on its app. With it, you can order super secret, off-menu items like the Surf + Turf, the Crunchy Double, a Hash Brown McMuffin, and the Land, Air & Sea. Clearly I had to accept the challenge of trying at least one of them. I love me a good weird food combo. Pretzels and cream cheese on white bread? Yes, please. Pizza and pineapple? Yep, I’m on …

OMG! You Can Buy The Office and He-Man Fisher Price Little People Figures

This post contains affiliate links. If you grew up in the ’70s, chances are some of your best friends were Fisher Price Little People. Fisher-Price really hit it out of the ballpark with its line of little wooden characters that did super exciting things like drive a car or go to school. Seriously, I must’ve spent a few thousand hours as a kid driving cars up and down the ramp of the Little People Service …

The Wizard Files

Wizard Magazine, Dee Snider, Mark Hamill and Me: A True Origin Story

It’s no secret that blogging has been good to this fanboy. Really good. I mean without this outlet for my creative insanity, I never would have had the chance to interview Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson or Kermit the Frog. But what you may not know is that when I was younger, I worked in editorial for a monthly comic book publication called Wizard magazine. For more reasons than one, this was the ultimate dream job. …

Schmigadoon on Apple TV+

I Absolutely Hate That I Love Schmigadoon!

Annie was the very first musical I ever saw on Broadway. I must have been about 7 or 8 years old and all I remember from that cold, wintery family trip to NYC was that I left my sweater in the theater. No, I’m not a huge fan of musicals. I do love the lavish backdrops and sets, as well as some of the stories. These days, you can also expect some crazy cool special …

Lego Daily Bugle Review – It’s Better Than Awesome

This post contains affiliate links. My Holy Grail of Legos has always been the Lego Star Wars Death Star. My amazingly loving and generous wife crossed that one off my list a few birthdays ago and it was absolutely worth the wait. Sure, I’ve done plenty of Marvel and Star Wars Legos since then and they’ve all been great. But nothing, nothing filled with me pure everything-is-awesomeness like that Death Star. Until now… Meet the …

Picking up directly from his disappearing act in the past in Avengers: End Game (thanks to the clumsy fight that ironically …

Avocado and Chicken Sushi Rolls

Sushi is easily one of my favorite food groups. While I love a straight-up salmon or tuna roll, the crazier the ingredients, the better. Dragon rolls. American Dream. Scorpion roll. I’ll try just about anything and have. Except, that is, for chicken sushi. No, I’m not suddenly craving raw chicken or starting a some new fad diet. But if you can put cooked shrimp in a maki roll (tempura shrimp rolls are just too amazing), …

Quenching My Gaming Thirst with Minecraft and Pac-Man Water Bottles

The following post contains affiliate links. I still remember rocking out to “Pac-Man Fever” when I was in Elementary School. How’s that for dating myself? Pac-Man may seem a bit simplistic compared to today’s newfangled, 3-D, first-person, multi-player puzzle shooters… but it’s a true classic. And I still do have Pac-Man fever. That’s why I’m pumped to see that Zak Designs is feeding my hunger (Or more aptly, quenching my thirst) for video games. The …

5 Kids DVDs Collection Giveaway

As a blogger, I’m constantly getting sent products to review. Top of the list? Kids DVDs. When my kids were younger, this was great. We’d watch loads of cartoons together and then I’d write up a nice review with them. But now that my boys are older, and I’m finding less and less free time for myself, lots of these kid movies and TV shows end up sitting in the corner. Alone. Unwatched. Unloved. And …
