Imagination Movers

If you're unfamiliar with the Imagination Movers, let me introduce you...

Meet Mover Scott, Mover Smitty, Mover Rich, and Mover Dave!

Everyone in our house LOVES these guys. They star in the Disney Channel's children's program of the same name. These four Movers work in the Idea Warehouse, where they use their imaginations to help customers find solutions to their problems. They've helped a football player learn how to catch a ball, a trombone player learn how to march and play at the same time, and they helped Pants Armstrong learn how to ride his bike again! Of course, they have their own share of problems to solve, like when Dave's inventions get out of hand or when Scott has a bad hair day. (Learn more about the Movers here.)

Last night, Drew had the pleasure of helping the Movers solve their newest idea-emergency (Smitty had lost his voice!) LIVE and IN PERSON! We were lucky enough to be able to attend the Davenport performance of the Imagination Movers "Live from the Idea Warehouse." Along with Drew's second cousins, Noah and Brady, we brainstormed, sang, and danced our way through an hour and a half of Mover fun!

I was able to capture a few short videos.

Brainstorm with us!

Drew had a hard time keeping his dancing legs in his seat!

Waiting for the show to begin!

There they are! The MOVERS!

"Can you help us solve our idea-emergency??"

Dave thinks he has just the thing to help Smitty find his voice...unfortunately, it didn't work.

Idea-emergency solved!

It was a really great show. I must say that I was quite impressed, and I'm pretty sure I had a better time than Drew did! Preschoolers must not be that intimidating as all the guys made their way into the audience at one point or another, giving high-fives and talking with the kids. It was great! (So great that the little girl across the aisle had a bit of meltdown upon the show's end.) With no nap yesterday afternoon, we were sure that Drew would crash as soon as we got in the van to head home. But his adrenaline must have been pumping as he didn't fall asleep until we were about 10 miles from our exit!

So if you haven't watched these guys in the morning on Disney, or heard any of their songs, I encourage you to check them out with your kids or grandkids. Shoot, just check them out for yourself. They're pretty great, and they can teach us adults a thing or two, too. :)
