We Like To Move It Move It!

Have you seen Madagascar 2 yet? I like family movies that can be entertaining for kids and parents alike and Madascar 2 is that kind of movie. It's only been out for a short time now and it has not only made it to #1 at the box office, it's making it's way into our everyday lives-is it just me or are you seeing the Madagascar theme just about everywhere these days?

Your kids can play it on their Nintendo DS.

They (or you) can reenact favorite scenes with action figures.

They can celebrate with it on their birthday.

And they can even get it at McDonald's.

McDonald's is using the new Madagascar 2 Happy Meals to promote their new platform, One Minute to Move it. It's a global children’s well-being program designed to encourage kids to see what a difference a minute can make. If you need some ideas, you can go to where kids can find creative activities and ways to move it in a minute.

On a related note, did you know that Alex from Madagascar 2 is a HUGE fan of The Happy Mom blog?

My 17 yo daughter loves this movie, sings and quotes from it constantly.

We have plans to see it soon. In fact, I have been looking forward to it. Not a big fan of McDonald toys-they tend to end up in the give-away bag.

neat blog.

My boys loved the first movie. I had to ban the "Move It" at chruch. People don't see it as funny when it's being sung through a prayer.

I'm gearing up to take them to see this one.

My son got a Madagascar toy in a Happy Meal recently and its driving me crazy.

I hear it going off all the time and its one that I hear "I like to move it, move it" at random moments all through the day. Ugh.
