Miles From Tomorrowland Toys Are On The Rise

Parents with kids will know exactly what I'm talking about. That moment when your child (in my case a 2 year old boy) runs up and starts asking to watch a show. The problem is you have no idea what he's saying, you've never watched the show before in your life and therefore have almost no chance of figuring it out. In my case we later lucked out though, my wife had dropped the boy off at daycare and "Miles From Tomorrowland" was on the TV. Our kid jumped and shouted the words he was saying the night before and now we finally knew what he wanted.

You would think we would be seasoned veterans of this game by now, this wasn't the first and won't be the last it's just the current right now. I've now watched just about every episode of this show so far and actually find myself liking it quite a bit. I grew up with a father who loved Star Trek, I was very into the idea of space because he was. So now it delights me to see a kids show with space as the setting.

Specifically a junior show set in space. I hadn't seen that before and it just made for a unique experience for me and I would have to assume my son as well. If you aren't familiar with the show the basic premise is that you have the Calisto family, who live aboard a big star ship called the Stellosphere. Miles is of course the focal point and the rest of the family includes his older sister Loretta, his mother Phoebe, father Leo and a robotic ostrich Merc that serves as the show's pet (every show has to have a pet right?). They work for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority (think Star Trek's Federation of Planets) and fly around performing rescue operations, repair and diplomatic missions.

That seems like a pretty normal premise, but there are things in the show that I think are worth noting. One of the appealing things for me is that the mom Phoebe is the captain of the ship. You don't see that very often and I think it's a positive message to children that gender should be equal. It also promotes a strong sense of family, something very important at all times. It also tried to inject some science into the show, concepts that I don't think would be included in other shows.

My child started to like this show a couple of months and as I tend to do I went looking for a small toy to buy him, I always like to find him a little something for the things he takes an interest in, but in this case I never really found much.

It wasn't until recently that they started popping up in the store. First I saw the toys at Walmart, then Target too, Target especially had a nice display specifically for them. Now Amazon has just about all of them. In fact Miles related items have started to come out well beyond just toys. This kind of stuff excites me, I like having a variety of items that I can get for me kid.

So what I've been doing is trying to go through and take a look at the Miles From Tomorrowland toys as they come out, figure out where to get them and look at the features they provide. My Miles From Tomorrowland Site is the place I do my writing so please come check it out. I try to post daily and my posts are about the items being released for the show, whether it be toys, books or even Halloween costumes. Thanks for reading my article and I hope you find what you are looking for out there.
