I’m not gonna lie; we’ve been looking forward to the brand-new Dragons line of toys from Playmobil for a while now. I first saw them back at Toy Fair, and once I showed the pictures to my kids, I knew they were destined to have a place of honor in our home. My kids are obsessed with the Dragons franchise. My daughter has read all 12 of the books, they both love the movies, and they adore Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix.

- Roar Score: 4/5
Performances at Wolf Trap rarely disappoint. As the National Park Service’s only park dedicated to the performing arts, the venue is a wonderful place to watch live music (when the weather cooperates, of course). We’re huge fans of Wolf Trap, and their summer concerts that combine films with live orchestral accompaniment have become a Roarbots tradition.
It began way back in 2008 when they screened The Fellowship of the Ring with a full orchestra. The next two years saw performances of The Two Towers and Return of the King. I was at all of them, and they were amazing. Since then, they’ve branched out, and some of the highlights have definitely been Pixar In Concert and Disney in Concert.
This year’s DreamWorks in Concert fits the mold of those two shows perfectly. In short, there was a full orchestra on stage, playing music timed to video clips projected on a big screen over the stage and outside the amphitheater for everyone sitting on the lawn.
Please, Wolf Trap, do more of these. (psst….Star Wars, just sayin’)
