One of the disadvantages (or advantages, depending on how you look at things) of not having cable or satellite TV is that neither I nor my children are ever really up to date when it comes to new movies, TV series, games, toys and such. So I’m almost embarrassed to say that I didn’t know what HOP was until I was told we’d be getting an Easter basket filled with goodies from the movie!
I went online and found the video for the song in Spanish–Caramelo–that artist Jencarlos Canela sings for the movie´s soundtrack. Cute chicks, a dancing E.B. (Easter Bunny), and a catchy song in Spanish were enough to get us excited. Watch for yourself.
When we opened up the basket, Vanessa was fascinated with all the candy, but her favorite things were the E.B. plush toy and the pink beret — even though she had no clue what it was all about. I explained it was all from a new movie called HOP that we´ll go see once it opens up in theaters on April 1st . Needless to say, she was hooked! So much so that she even took her E.B. to school for show and tell. When I picked her up from school and asked her how it went, she told me she’d forgotten the name of the plush toy, but that it was okay because her classmates knew it and helped her out!
