A 7-year-old kid decided she wanted to work at Google. Her dad said, “write them a letter.” She did. The CEO responded. It’s cute stuff. Hit up the link below.

Chloe Bridgewater was inspired by seeing the bean bag chairs and slides in the office.

Baby Groot is Still Cute

This “wood plush puppet” (not sure what that is but OK) proves that Baby Groot is still cute. From Entertainment Earth, not available until July 2016, because San Diego Comic-Con.

But look! Isn’t he sooo cute? $8.99. Don’t you want one? I kinda do. I mean, for the kids. Of course. Definitely for the kids. Toys. For kids. Or adults. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone!

Description from Entertainment Earth’s email:

Measuring a little more than 4-inches tall, this potted Groot wooden push puppet features hand-painting along with some decal elements. Designed similarly to vintage-styled push puppets, you can move the push puppet in various directions depending on how you push the hidden button on the bottom of the pot – providing hours of wobbly fun. And well, because it’s only right… this charming collectible celebrating the extraterrestrial, sentient tree-like creature is crafted out of solid wood, of course!

So it’s solid wood, and is somehow “similar” to plush puppets. “Hours of wobbly fun.” There’s a phrase for you.

If you need reminding, or just want to see Baby Groot dance to the full Jackson 5 song “I Want You Back”, someone did that and posted it to YouTube. Because we love people who do that type of stuff.

Mimobot USB Flash Drives On Sale (DaddyDeals)

DaddyDeal for you — big sale on MIMOBOT® flash drives, including Batman (DKR, as in Dark Knight Returns, or maybe Dark Knight Rises — if it matters to you, look before you buy, which you should be doing anyway).

Batman (DKR) X MIMOBOT ® - On Sale and Almost Gone

Look at that cute scowl. And his enormous cranium. Doesn’t it scream “buy me”?

Holiday gift giving season is coming up fast. Chanukah is on Thanksgiving. Seriously. If Chanukah is your holiday, you don’t have as much time to shop as you did last year; you might want to start shopping now.

Flash drives actually make good gifts for kids. Why? Lots of reasons.

– Older kids can use them for school.

– Younger kids can use them to move files from a computer to the flash drive and back.

– Younger siblings can stop being jealous of their older sibling’s flash drive.

All good reasons. And these particular flash drives are cute as well as useful.

Batman is listed as “almost gone”, which isn’t a big surprise considering the price is under 20 bucks as of this writing. (Pricing depends on memory size. And which character you buy. And other stuff. We just provide the link; details are at Mimobot.com.) If you don’t want Batman, Mimobot’s site has lots of other options, including Babo, Big Toe, Brickle, Emily the Strange (which we think looks a lot like Batwoman), Galacula, Galaxor2, Ice-Bat, and even Kilowog! Kilowog is “almost gone” as well. Why? Because Kilowog is AWESOME. (For those who don’t know, Kilowog is also a DC character, part of the Green Lantern Corps.)

Kilowog MIMOBOT

Sale ends 10/31/13, aka Halloween. Scary! (Not actually that scary.) Hit the link below to get your favorite Mimobot on sale before it goes bye bye.

On Sale! – Save Big on Mimobot USB Flash Drives | Mimoco.

Baby Spy With A Jetpack is Cute (Dirty Sock Funtime Band)

The Dirty Sock Funtime Band brings us this cute picture of a Baby Spy with a jetpack. Check it out:

Right? Cute kid, and well-done costume. We particularly like the flames.

For the uninitiated, The Dirty Sock Funtime Band has been described (by me) as the Frank Zappa of the children’s music scene. (It may be tacky to quote yourself, it does make for easy fact-checking.) You may have seen them on Jack’s Big Music Show, or heard their tunes at Chuck E. Cheese.

Here is the video for the Dirty Socks’ song Baby Spies, which inspired the cute photo above.

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

If you like that — and why wouldn’t you, it’s great — you should check out the band’s RocketHub campaign for their new album, The Dirty Socks Come Clean. There a variety of ways you can “Join The Band” (not literally) while getting some cool stuff, such as a signed poster, t-shirts, and an early download of the new album. Learn more here.

Video – Father And Son Sing Don’t Let Me Down (DaddyTube)

Today on DaddyTube, a father and son singing Don’t Let Me Down. Dad plays guitar. The little boy, presumably his son although to be fair we don’t know this for certain but a bunch of copies of the video on YouTube declare it to be true, sings and strums a ukelele. It is very cute. Watch the video.

Is it just us or does the kid sound like he’s in the correct key when he plucks out some notes halfway through the video?

(Hat tip to Karl Erickson via Facebook for the vid)

The Only Baby Dancing Gangham Style Video You Need

Right? How cute is that? You’re welcome.

My little girl Amaya peacefully sleeping…until her favorite song comes on! ORIGINAL – YouTube.
