The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Back Again in Mutagen Mayhem which had a Release date of March 11, 2014
I can not begin to express how thrilled Huxley (my four year old) was when we received Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:Mutagen Mayhem to review. He jumped up and down and begged to watch it soon after it had arrived. You can purchase your own copy for just $9.99 from Target.
Now I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of the show personally. It is not as bad as some cartoons but since I am a girly girl I have a hard time relating to this one. I have watched countless episodes and am sure that I will continue to watch more since I have a little one that loves them so much.
That being said I have talked to Huxley a lot about what he loves so much about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I am an open minded person and talking to a very excited four year old about his love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actually kind of made me excited to watch them the fourth time in a row with him. I love that he becomes animated and almost interactive jumping around and showing me what the turtles have done. It is as if the show has come alive in my living room.
Huxley’s Five Things He Loves Most About the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
They Always Get to Eat Pizza
That is right, he spoke like a true man and went straight to the point of food. He is very excited when he sees the turtles munching on pizza. Plus I will admit that I have used this to my advantage a time or two when I have asked him to eat more of his pizza like the turtles would.
One of Them Has a Sword
So I can admit that my son has a slight obsession with swords. He loves them! Everywhere we go he is always asking me to buy him a new sword of some type. He has asked for them at live Disney shows, at the Disney store, at Target, at WalMart, and even when he has been at an interactive place like Build A Bear. The obsession with swords is something that always makes me giggle because when he is playing with one he jumps around and says great things like “ninja power.” I was not at all surprised that this was one of the things that he loved.
The Red Face Mask
He likes the color red a lot so naturally seeing a turtle wearing a red face mask is very cool to him. I personally like that it reinforces that a color can be significant. I tend to assign colors to my kids when we are traveling or just in general. In our house Huxley generally gets green or red items, Andrew is red or blue, Althea is pink, and Adeline is purple. From time to time these do get mixed around a bit but in general it can help me to know who did not clear their plate from the table or who made a mess. So I thought that it was interesting that he noticed that they all have different colors and that he liked a particular one better than another.
They Go in Tunnels
While I do not think that he realizes what the sewers would really be like, he loves the idea that the sewers are a system of tunnels. He has a thing for tunnels kind of similar to what he has for swords. Driving through tunnels or walking around tunnels is very exciting with him because he is so full of life when he is doing something that he loved. So he thinks that the Ninja Turtles are awesome because they get to run around in giant tunnels all of the time.
I was quite impressed when he said that he loved their names. As someone who believes that names should have great meaning and significance in one’s life, I love that the turtles are named after the great artists. I also have to admit that I love being able to hear Huxley tell me the turtle’s names. They sound much cuter when he says them then any other time that I have ever heard them. Plus it is pretty cool that a conversation about the turtles can turn into a quick art lesson and looking at art through Google.
