Boo at the LA Zoo is in full swing and there is still plenty of time to get down to the Los Angeles Zoo and enjoy all of the ghoulish goings on. From now until October 31st families can feed their imaginations with educational and eerie fun.

Every day in October, the LA Zoo will offer family-friendly activities along with live music, special animal feedings, pumpkin carving, and crafts.

  • Graveyard Safari – Trek through a hay bale maze and encounter creatures of the Los Angeles Night

House Party: Miles From Tomorrowland!

Space adventurer Miles Callisto is always ready for action, traveling through the universe with his family and his best friend, a robo-ostrich named Merc. They use teamwork and problem solving as they encounter obstacles while completing missions throughout outer space for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority.

We recently hosted a Miles From Tomorrowland party and had a blast checking out all of the new toys offered by Tomy Toys. My youngest son is a huge fan of the Disney Junior show and he couldn't wait to share all of the awesome toys with his friends. 

The Callistos' home base is a floating space station called the Stellosphere, and the StarJetter is the vehicle they use to go to other planets and galaxies. Parker was so excited to see both the Stellosphere and the StarJetter in his hosting package. Both toys included a different Miles figure used to navigate the ships.

I'd have to say his favorite toy was the SuperSteller Blastboard! Miles rockets through the cosmos in nanoseconds on his Blastboard and you can too! Choose from 3 different game modes to practice your balance skills on the BlastBoard. 

The kids had a great idea and decided to use our empty boxes to create their very own spaceships. They used crayons and markers to design the command console and the exterior portholes. I love when they use their imaginations and creativity to take playtime to the next level!

You can't have a Miles From Tomorrowland party without serving up a few out of this world treats. Working on their own space ships and traveling the galaxy sure did make them hungry! Our themed menu was a hit with all of the junior astronauts.

Meteor Munch:

Moon Pies:

Merc Juice:

Crater Cakes:

Mission Bars:

My kids played for hours with all of the fun Miles From Tomorrowland toys. Tomy Toys really did a great job with the durability and design of these toys. 

You can find all of these Miles From Tomorrowland toys at local retailers like Toys R Us and Target!

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I received a hosting package that included sample product in order to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.
