Transformers Cybertron Features 52 Episodes of the Robots in Disguise

Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series

Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios sent me the upcoming Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series DVD set for review on my dad blog. The DVD set includes all 52 episodes of the series on seven discs. The DVD set is a staggering 1180 minutes long. The box set will keep the kids busy all summer long if you let them. But that would be crazy. My suggestion is to limit the kids to a few episodes a day. Otherwise your Transformers-loving children will turn into sofa zombies. That wouldn’t be good. Not good at all. Transformers Cybertron: The Complete Series will be available on August 5, 2014. It has a list price of $44.99, but you can currently purchase it on Amazon for $34.99.

12 Road Trip Survival Tips

Rio road trip

Our family recently went on a Rio road trip. OK, it was actually just a day trip from Portland down to Corvallis and Marys Peak (highest peak in the Oregon Coast Range). My oldest child will be a freshman in high school this fall, so I wanted to introduce her to my alma mater, Oregon State University. She still has four years to decide where she wants to go to college, but I figure I should start the brainwashing as early as possible. The last thing I want to see happen is for my daughter to become an Oregon Duck, my school’s rival to the south. Anyway, this post isn’t about selecting a college. I’m actually sharing some road survival trips for parents of young kids.
