A Wrinkle In Time In Stores Today With Loads of Bonus Features
If you’ve been waiting on A Wrinkle In Time to head home, today is the day. I couldn’t wait for the movie to hit blu-ray so I could get my copy to watch over and over again with my kids. Earlier this year I participated in the world premiere event in Los Angeles. During my trip, I had the opportunity to chat with Oprah, Mindy, and Reese, and discuss the film with director Ava DuVernay. What I loved about this film is how it incorporates science and mathematics into the film allowing for an open dialogue about S.T.E.M. with your children.
Disclosure: Thanks for Walt Disney Studios for the Wrinkle In Time Movie Kit to review. Any opinions expressed are my own.

My Thoughts On the Film:
During my trip to L.A., I learned a lot about this film that made me love it in a different way. I will admit there are a few scenes towards the end of the movie that may be scary for young children. During both screenings of the movie I saw, there were kids of all ages who were enjoying the movie so if you feel comfortable sharing it with your child it’s really up to you.
The movie itself addressed so many issues that kids deal with every day including bullying. Meg was learning about herself and trying to discover and make choices regarding who she was and not letting friends at school dictate how she should act or dress. It was a very important subtle theme in the movie. I love that Meg was brave, strong, and challenged the norm of what girls her age should look like or do. Having her mother as a scientist serving as a strong role model for her was great as well.
Ava DuVernay did an amazing job with this movie and bringing it to life in a way that was unique and all her own. I loved her vision of the film and all the stunning images and designs in the film. A Wrinkle In Time is perfect for movie night. You can pick up books to add more dialogue with your kids about the film.
In addition to the movie, my kit had some very cool swag including this Wrinkle In Time Limited Edition Doll from Barbie. I’d been looking at this doll for months so I was super excited to see it in the kit. I won’t be sharing it with my kids for sure. LOL.
Another cool addition to our kits was littleBits Hall of Fame inventor kits. We ended up with the Crawly Creature kit and the kids are excited about breaking it out and creating the creature in the kit and learning more about the technology that went into creating the kit. I love this fun activity. I’ve looked on the littleBits website and their Hall of Fame inventor kits cost $39.99 each, there from four designs to choose from. Bundle and save, get free shipping with two kids, $10 and free shipping with three kits, and $20 off and free shipping when you buy all four kits. The Hall of Fame littleBits Kits is perfect for special occasions and holiday gift ideas.
