Better yet, grab some popcorn and make a movie night out of it! It’ll be like looking through an old photo album, but better, because it’s filled with action packed adventures in space!

Max’s debut on the big screen

Ready Room? Ready!

You and your kids may not be able to recognize him right away, but you’ll see how much Max has grown up since becoming the Blaster that he is today. Do you recognize anyone else? That’s right, Galactic Commander is right by his side in the films too! It’s a good thing everyone has had time to get to know each other and become well acquainted. Your kids probably know her so well that they just call her GC now.

Blasters to the Rescue!

One day, Max and GC were blasting through some menacing math problems, when GC suddenly needed some help. She asked Max for some tips, but he wasn’t quite sure how to answer her question. Can Max count on your kid’s Blasters to help him out? The safety of the Spaceport depends on it, so its time to work together with your blasters. Here is the problem GC got from Mission Control.

Space Cadet: How many space seconds in a space minute?
Blasternaut: 60
Space Cadet: How many space minutes in a space hour?
