Disney Frozen Comic Book Adaptation

frozen-comicYesterday I stopped by the comic shop to pick up my comics and I seen on the new release rack a Disney comic book adaptation of the movie Frozen. Pencils by Massimiliano Narciso and colors by Kawaii Creative Studio. I would say the art looks great. The story adapts from the movie perfectly. A comic book like this is the perfect introduction to comic books for any little girl. Once you talk your daughter into going to the comic shop with you I am sure she will be amazed with the selection of My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, and many other cartoon based comic books. For a little more mature daughter you can always check out one of the many female led comic books out. Fortunately this Frozen comic is not the first one I have purchased for my little girl. She has a stack of books in her room that she reads through constantly. I also put away a nice collection of comic books for her once she gets older. I also started putting aside some comics for my son. I’ll save what comics those are for another post.

Summary: Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey – teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf along the way, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. Audiences who thrilled to the adventures of Anna and Elsa on the big screen can relive their favorite moments in this stunning comics retelling by Disney’s own master artists.

Abby Doodles TV – Episode 01 – Princess Anna’s New Butterfly Dress

My daughter loves Youtube. She can spend a lot of time watching some pretty cool videos. One day I asked Abby if she wanted to make her own videos and put them on Youtube. She got super excited and said yes. So I got to work creating a logo she really liked and a quick little intro and after that we were off making our very first video.

The Hairy Elephant Experience

Alex-Before-HarryElephantYesterday my little guy went to The Hairy Elephant and got his hair cut. His hair was getting pretty shaggy so my wife and I decided we needed to get this hair under control. Our original appointment was cancelled because of the snow on Monday. We rescheduled for Wednesday and that morning Alex got his very first hair cut.

At The Hairy Elephant Alex received the royal treatment. He picked out a Mini Cooper for his chair and Sesame Street to watch. He paid close attention to Elmo as the stylist did her thing. After his hair cut he was pampered with an elephant hair wash. As you can see he is looking sharp and all set for his first birthday in a couple of weeks. If I’m completely honest with you, it was a little sad seeing him getting his hair cut. It’s one of those steps that all parents go through that just shows that they won’t be kids forever.


IMG_2877My daughter on the other hand… It took forever for her hair to really gain some length. She is now four and still has not had a hair cut. Her hair is so curly and I’ve been told by many to not cut her hair. As long as it looks good I don’t plan on it.

All in all, I am extremely happy that Alex did so well getting his hair cut. No crying or fussing at any point. To any dad or mom looking for a place that does great children’s hair cuts. The Hairy Elephant is the place to be.
