Vampire Dog is a movie that I got the privilege to view before it hit the streets last week to spotlight as the Halloween season approached. Before you run for the hills and decide that you probably don’t want to know about a movie featuring a talking vampire dog, hear me out! This movie surprised both my husband and I who typically find that talking animal movies leave us a little perturbed, found this one to be well worth watching during family movie night with the kids!
Dove Foundation family-approved, Vampire Dog is a movie about a boy that is given a dog by his recently passing Grandfather. Little does the main character Ace know that this dog is a Vampire Dog. And this is not your ordinary vampire, this dog has a taste not for blood but red jelly! I really enjoyed the scientific reasoning behind that one which was explained in a pretty acceptable and believable way. Doe this movie have silly antics? Yes! Goofy Humor? Of course. Incredible twist and surprises? Not really but that’s okay, not every movie has to be super gripping.
Through all the silliness there’s a plot that teaches kids the importance of friendship and courage. Kids will also learn about acceptance, being themselves, and of moving on. Total movie runtime is 91 minutes. And the movie is mainly geared toward the pre-teen crowd though both my 4 year old and nearly two year enjoyed watching the talking dog.

The Green Toys American made Flatbed Truck and Race Car has been quite the hit with my nearly two year old son and my 4 year old daughter. This toy has provided for hours or imaginative play with lots of rough and tumble play indoors and out. The colors of the car and truck are very eye catching and rich. And the ramp attached to the back of truck has been much fun for my son. He’s been putting all sorts of things on the back other than the red sports car to push around and then drop off. The Flatbed Truck is built to last and I can’t imagine it wearing out anytime soon.
