Have you seen Inside Out?
Riley is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley’s emotions — led by Joy (Amy Poehler) — try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.
Here at Jersey Family Fun we are always looking for ways to have unique experiences with our families. Sometimes it’s the traditional ways we spend time as a family that can be the most memorable. A family movie night is one of those time honored traditions that give us warm fuzzy memories!
Seeing a movie in the theater as a family can be so expensive. If your children are small, sitting still and quiet can be a challenge. Even though it’s “screen time,” movie nights at home are a way to get the family together in one room, focused on the same thing. Pausing the movie if someone has a question or if something in the movie sparks a conversation is okay when you’re home! It’s also okay if someone falls asleep if you’re watching while cozy on your couch.
Movie nights here include popcorn, blankets, a dim room and a family friendly movie. Everyone jockeys for the best spot on the couch, even the dog. When it’s a Disney-Pixar movie the adults are excited to watch too, because we know it’s going to become one of our favorites. Inside Out hits close to home, as a common parental request here is “control your emotions!” We can certainly hope that our children can identify with and learn from Riley and her emotional journey, without realizing there’s a lesson there!
This time when we watch our DVD copy of Inside Out, we have these fun Inside Out figures by TOMY to enhance our movie experience. Joy, Disgust, Fear, Anger and Sadness figures light up when next to the Console, and add the Console to the Headquarters playset for more Inside Out fun! The figures come with their own memory balls, which sit on the Console, just like in the movie. When it’s an emotion’s time on screen, it’s their time at our Console too with their memory ball and their turn to light up. The figures are super cute just like the movie characters, and my daughter loves imitating Sadness’s funny voice.
But the toys remain fun even when we aren’t watching the movie! The great thing about Inside Out is how the emotions are humanized, and the movie shows children that feelings are okay; they may be overwhelming but acknowledging and understanding them can help kids cope. Having the toys at home reinforces the message of Inside Out – work with your emotions mindfully, and don’t fear them.
