It’s been a while since I’ve done a Stuff Dudes Like post.
Maybe it’s because they pretty much only like Vine Kids (seriously, it’s cute, but also GAAAAHHH! They watch it always.) and watching other people play video games (how is this fun? You have the game, why don’t you just play it? Is watching someone else play the game you own more fun than actually playing the game you own? And, why did I buy the game if you were just going to watch someone else play it? Dear Children, please stop blowing my mind.) on YouTube.
Or, perhaps it’s that even though they got plenty of toys for Christmas and the birthday that happened in January, pretty much only the football gets played with. Everything else (except for Dude 3’s art box and journal) sits in a plastic bin by the fireplace leading me to believe that when it comes to stuff dudes like, only footballs and YouTube make the list.
And then, a couple of weeks ago, Dude 3 received a huge box filled with Power Rangers awesome. Honestly, I thought they didn’t even exist anymore. I remember my brother watching that show in the 90s. The annoying theme song. Him singing it. When I wanted him to not. Figured all of that was gone, along with my girlish figure and my Cross Colors sweat shirt.
But, as it turns out, The Power Rangers are still a thing. A long running, kid friendly thing that launched it’s 22nd season this year with the Power Rangers Dino Charged series. It has many of the same things that kids have always loved about it (heroes taking it to bad guys, yes; the annoying theme song from the 90s, no) and a bunch of new tidbits of awesome kids of today will enjoy.
A bunch of turbo powered dinosaurs. Or something. I’m not sure. The Dudes watched and there were dinosaurs color coordinated with the Power Rangers (yes, there is a pink one). And then there was like fire. And smoke. And sparks. And more fire. And lasers. And additional fire. And really intense music. And a super shiny bolt of something. And then Dude 3 did a jump kick off of the couch and I decided it was high time I cook dinner.
Because all of the jump kicks. Cooking dinner seemed relaxing.
Firey TV show kids dig aside, the new Power Rangers are also in super cool in action figure form.
The Red Ranger (wait, do they have names? Like Sean? Or Penelope? Or are they just called Pink Ranger and Blue Ranger and Red Ranger?) that Dude 3 received has not been left lonely since he showed up on our door step a few weeks ago. He takes him in the car. He takes him to practice. He took him to school for show and tell. He sleeps with him, and eats with him, and gets clean with him too.
Oh, and they watch Vines together. Of course.
Have a kid who might enjoy getting Dino Charged with the Power Rangers? Check it out on Nickelodeon every Saturday at 12 noon!
