Emanuel pieces together what Lego’s Build Zone is all about

May 17, 2017   //   by Emanuel   //   Age 4-8, Kids' Panel  //  Comments Off on Emanuel pieces together what Lego’s Build Zone is all about

Hello, my name is Emanuel and today I’m going to review Build Zone. If you don’t know what it is, let me tell you: it’s a series that features different kids building Lego sets. Sometimes there is a friend that helps the host.

Build Zone is a video series on YouTube by the Lego company. They build Lego sets with a friend and there are four seasons of the show. The show is very descriptive and interesting because the hosts REALLY put a lot of effort into it. If you watch it you will notice this by how the hosts describe the different parts of the Lego sets, go through how to build them, and give advice.

At the end of the show they do a stopmotion movie featuring the Lego set they just built. They also add a cardboard surrounding/scene for the Lego set.

The show is about eight minutes long, which makes it easy to watch. Some of the hosts are close to my age (8) which makes me think, “If they can do it, then why can’t I?”

The hosts work together to build the Lego sets, they all have the same room to work in. They’re really creative and they seem to use a lot of time and effort to build the set. My favourite Lego set they built was ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!

I like Build Zone because the episodes are so funny and they fast forward the building process. They even show the mistakes that they make throughout the video as they try it again and again. This shows that the hosts put a lot of time and effort into the build.

Thanks for reading!

Emanuel Reads Up on Training Dragons

Jan 11, 2017   //   by Emanuel   //   Age 4-8, Kids' Panel  //  Comments Off on Emanuel Reads Up on Training Dragons

I love How to Train Your Dragon because it is very funny and cool. The main character is a boy named Hiccup. He has a dragon named Toothless who is very annoying and also very small. Hiccup is very smart and he is the heir to the Viking tribe, the Hairy Hooligans. Hiccup has a friend named Fishlegs who does not know how to swim and is afraid of the dark. Hiccup also has another friend named Camacazi who is super talented. One of her talents is being funny while she is battling. She distracts her opponents by talking a lot and making fun of them. After she battled another Viking named Norbert the Nutjob, she said to him “practice Norbert, that’s what you need.’’

I like the How to Train Your Dragon books because of the adventures that Hiccup goes on. His adventures are complex and weird. One of the adventures that Hiccup went on was going to recover the treasure of his grandfather, Grimbeard the Gastly. The treasure was protected by dragons named Skullions who could not see but had good scent. The treasure was booby-trapped with a scent that attracted the Skullions and Hiccup just escaped. All of this exciting and complex action is why I like How To Train Your Dragon SO Much!

Emanuel Finds Adventure in Super Agent Jon Le Bon

Oct 26, 2016   //   by Emanuel   //   Age 4-8, Kids' Panel  //  Comments Off on Emanuel Finds Adventure in Super Agent Jon Le Bon
Emanuel reading a Super Agent Jon Le Bon book.

Emanuel likes the Super Agent Jon Le Bon series of graphic novels because it is funny and cool.

Check this out: the graphic novels Super Agent Jon Le Bon, books 1-5 by Alex A.

Why it’s cool? Why do you like it?

I like the Jon Le Bon series because it is funny and cool. It’s funny because Jon Le Bon does silly things, like in book 5 (Time Travel Fridge) he decides he wants to fight some giraffes who walk on two legs and some weird elephants. I think it’s cool because there’s a lot of action and excitement that happens in all 5 books, since this book is an action adventure featuring secret agent Jon Le Bon.

Is it entertaining, educational, or both?

I think this book is mostly entertaining, because it’s full of a lot of action and excitement. But if you’re looking to start your own secret agency, this book tells you how to do that since it’s all about a secret agency.
