Darlin’ Deals Giveaway ~ Dawn of the Croods Family Activity Kit!


Disclaimer: I received a complimentary Dawn of the Croods Family Activity Kit in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.

If you were a fan of the prehistoric hit movie, The Croods, you will grunt with excitement to know that the cave dwelling family is back with a prequel to the movie. The prequel will unfold as a Netflix Original series called Dawn of the Croods, set to release on Decemeber 24th.

This would be a great show to watch with the kiddos while they are on Winter Break! The new series Dawn of the Croods is sure to reduce the number of times you hear the typical vacation phrase that kids love to use, “I’m bored.” Now they’ll have a fun new cartoon series to watch and best of all its enjoyable for the whole family!

Dawn of the Croods synopsis:

The world’s first family is back and funnier than ever in this all-new original family sitcom! Eep, Grug, Thunk, Ugga, Sandy and Gran are taking the prehistoric Croodacious era by storm as they deal with modern-day problems for the first time ever in history. School, slumber parties and elections are some of the hilarious wonders of modern life The Croods are discovering!


Here’s a trailer to get you excited for the upcoming release of this Netflix original series!
