I shared it with my Instagram followers here:
The blow up sword was destroyed by the next morning.
This thoughtfully prepared kit also contained fun things such as a blanket to snuggle up with while watching the show, Bugles ( Dragons Tails), Doritos (Dragons Claws), said sword, props such as masks and a metal lunch box with the characters of the show on the front.
My Instagram feed was full of other Netflix Stream Team members creatively using their kits with their families.
She had made a Barbie fort with her Dragons: Race to the Edge lunch box.
Don’t see the lunch box?
That’s because she had ripped the top of the lunch box off.
Because on night one it was already dented in.
The bottom part was inverted and being used as Barbie’s stage.
It is behind that playhouse you see there.
The blow up sword?
Already in a landfill somewhere.
I AM SORRY, recycling bin somewhere.
Need to be politically correct.
What Netflix doesn’t realize is that when it sends things like blow up swords to homes like mine, is that as much as we like to be all creative and artsy, at the end of the day, all hell breaks loose and well, literally breaks.
But it is all good because we love to be creative around here in our own special way.
We have used that blanket a lot though for forts, family room picnics and snuggling because it has been raining here this summer.
So thank you for saving us Netflix.
Here is a good adventure movie we discovered this summer, Planet Earth.
And we didn’t need to destroy a blow up sword to discover it.
What is your favorite adventure?
I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team. Meaning, for the next year, once a month I will be writing posts about how my family is using our Netflix. They provided me with a Roku and a voucher for my Netflix account.
