We've Been Watching A Lot Of This

Are you familiar with Tin Tin?  A lot of people we know have never heard of him.  Our friend Denny said " I've heard of Rin Tin Tin." We laughed.
We discovered Tin Tin when our son Nate was younger and looking for something interesting for a boy to read from the library.  He really enjoyed reading these stories.  A few years later we discovered a cartoon series of the Adventures of Tin Tin.

After Christmas we decided to see a film as a family and we choose Tin Tin - though the girls had all seen it.  We enjoyed it very much, especially Kyle.  So when he was looking to use his Target gift card last week, and not being able to find a toy he wanted in his price range, we headed over to the dvd section to see what he might find.  (I find that most of it is, to borrow Charlotte Mason's term, "twaddle.")  Just when we thought he would have to give up his search I spied "The Adventures of Tin Tin," season one of the animated series!  

He and Sarah and Rachel have been enjoying them.  If you are interested in reading more about Herge' and Tin Tin I found the Wikipedia page very good. Here is the link - Tin Tin
Have a wonderful day.  Thanks for all your sweet comments and encouragement yesterday.


  1. I don't think that my grands are quite up to this level of sophistication, but I'll be keeping it in mind for another year. Thank you for the review!

  2. I have not watched this but have heard of it. I too long for something when I go and rarely find movie/tv appropriate for what I wish.

    Glad that you found a good one!

  8. My kids adore the Tin-tin books! I first heard of them from Timberdoodle, a place where I order homeschool stuff. My kids have spent hours reading them. I didn't know there was an animated series! We just recently went to the theater and watched the movie.

  9. Yes we're familiar with Tin-Tin. Although my daughter has never been a big fan. Haven't seen the movie yet but since my daughter wants to be an animator, we wind up seeing all those films!
