Coming Attractions: Live Kids' Entertainment, Disney Crafts and a Kid-friendly Giveaway

Considering how much fun CC and I had the last time we joined habla blah blah, we're looking forward to this lively event. Also, we've never visited The COOP in Studio City, which looks like a fun place for the kiddos.

11118 Ventura Blvd.
Studio City, CA 91604
Admission: $9 per child (While the habla blah blah performance is free, admission fees still apply.)


Local Disney Store locations will be hosting tyke-friendly events every Saturday throughout June.

On Saturday, June 5, the stores will host a "Toy Story 3" Craft Activity. According to the press release:

"Now kids can create their very own adventure for Buzz, Woody, Jessie and the whole Toy Story 3 gang with a 2-D playset they will put together in the store (while supplies last). Parents don't forget to bring your camera because there will be plenty of great photo opportunities you won't want to miss. This event will be from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m."

The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum will host Family Fundays throughout June, beginning June 6 at 11 a.m. with a performance of "Ferdinand the Bull."

Creative PlayGround presents this interactive theater piece, based on the book "The Story of Ferdinand," by Munro Leaf, about a peace-loving bull that winds up in a Madrid bullfight.

According to the press release:

"Audience members participate from the moment they arrive, working with the actors before the show to make pipe-cleaner flowers that are thrown into the ring during the bullfight. Volunteers become the other young bulls of the meadow as well as the Men from Madrid who are looking for bulls to fight. All are invited to help Ferdinand create stories using their imagination and one youngster even becomes the Matador!"

Perry's Previews is the kid-tastic movie-review website run by 10-year-old film critic Perry Chen.

This precocious SoCal youngster reviews family-friendly films (G and PG only) and gives them his own trademark "Perrific!" ratings. He rates the movies with 1-5 Starfish, with 5 being the best. Any movie rated 4 and higher is deemed "Perrific!" a term Perry coined for his system.

Perry has teamed with Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment to give away a free "Alice in Wonderland" DVD.

To enter, visit by tomorrow, June 3, and submit a short essay of your "Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast," or email it to

Only children ages 15 and younger may enter.
