Do you love Charlie Brown and Peanuts as much as I do? I grew up watching Charlie Brown specials on TV for every holiday and reading the funny pages for Peanuts. The whole gang was a big part of my childhood. I loved how intellectual these little kids sounded to me as a kid, and even now as an adult. So I was very happy to see a big display of Peanuts items at the Sweet Suite event in Chicago (it’s a giant toy party – disclosure: I received some free items but was not otherwise compensated to share this information, opinions are my own). I want to fill you in on some things I learned and a quick giveaway too!
- A New Peanuts Movie!
Okay, we are going to have to wait a bit for this movie, but I’m so excited! The movie is set to be released on November 25, 2015 which will mark the 65th anniversary of the debut of the “Peanuts” comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the TV special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. I’ll keep you up to date as I learn more.
- Follow the Peanuts gang on Facebook
Yep, they are right there on Facebook with the rest of us!
- Peanuts Apps
Loud Crow has three Peanuts storybook apps, Charlie Brown’s All-Stars, It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. Introduce your kids to these classics! For app gaming, first up is Snoopy Coaster which has Snoopy having fun on a roller coaster. Then there is Snoopy’s Street Fair where you help the gang raise funds for new baseball uniforms. Note that the Street Fair game is a “freemium” game though which means free for the app, but you can opt to buy things in the game (or block that feature).
- Peanuts Collection Limited Edition Moleskine
We all love a good little notebook or planner, right? Well the Peanuts gang is some special editions from Moleskine this year. This would be great for back-to-school (for teachers and parents too) and for stocking stuffers for the upcoming holidays.
