Sorry Domino, but you are the recipient of only the 2nd negative review I’ve given out on this site. Usually I don’t do negative reviews because there are lots o’ things to discuss that I’m totally stoked about. But because Domino has now ripped my heart to shreds TWICE, once by folding up shop in the first place and now by taunting us with this lame rehash of old content, Domino is getting CALLED OUT. Were there really NO new homes to see? None? REALLY?
No one loved you more than I did, Domino. Therefore no one is more disappointed in you than I am. There were maybe 2 things in the whole ‘special’ edition that were fresh content. It was special all right. Special in the sense that it was all stuff that we’d seen in the old magazines AND the Domino book! Go buy the book. The book is awesome. The ‘new’ mag was a huge meh. Boo.
Getting off soap box, exiting stage right.
We are NOT disappointed in the classic Chinese folktale Tikki Tikki Tembo! Or Mad Libs! Here are two fun games: try saying this as fast as you can, it’s totally fun:
“Tikki Tikki Tembo no-Sa-Rembo chari-Bari-Ruchi pip-Peri Pembo”
Say it faster.
And try writing some Mad Libs with your kiddo. Take turns. I’ll bet yours will be funny and silly. I’ll bet your kiddos' will have the words “poop”, “poopy”, “toilet” and “pee-pee” everywhere they can put them. And they will think THAT is even funnier and sillier.
No? Only my kid likes to do that?
Sally is looking at squirrels. She would like to chase a squirrel. Or a bird. Her teeth chatter when she sees either one, it is SO BIZARRE.
See what Andrew is washing out for me? It’s Julia’s Hello Kitty canteen. Sometimes when you go camping, you get thirsty and this amazing canteen comes with a little cup on top. Hello Kitty is thoughtful like that.
Me. Smiling through the pain of knowing that I paid $11 for that Domino mag.
It was an exciting day! It was a day where we didn’t have to go anywhere or do anything! So that made it exciting! Shorts, books, Mad Libs, chattering cats, warmish weather. Domino, you’re on my naughty list.
