Our family went on a family vacation to Los Angeles in January and my husband and I had talked about taking our boys (ages 10, 8, 6 and 2) to Madame Tussauds Hollywood Wax Museum. My husband and I had visited many years ago before we had kids. We were a little unsure if our kids would enjoy it. We thought they probably won’t know most of the wax sculptures but we thought we would give it a try since we were going to be in the area.

Well, I am here to tell you my boys LOVED it! They had so much fun, even with the wax figures they didn’t know, and I was pleasantly surprised at how many kid-friendly characters there were.

One thing I didn’t remember from my visit years ago was the props. They had props with most of the wax figures which made it more fun for the boys to pose and take pictures and interact. It was so fun to watch my boys get into character and just have a blast taking pictures and videos of them.

There are three floors of wax figures; I was impressed with how lifelike many of them are. You start on the top floor and work down; there are elevators and stairs, so if you have a stroller the elevator comes in handy.

The floors follow a theme, one floor has disco lights with wax figurines of singers and performers, then you go down and there are actors, producers, movie type characters like E.T. My boys have never watched the movie E.T. but they had fun posing on the iconic bicycle with E.T. and taking pictures. There are classic figures like Elvis, Jimmy Stewart, Charlton Heston as well as new figures like Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner, they are always updating and changing. I loved seeing the new Selena wax sculpture.

They have staff photographers at some of the wax figurines, and you can purchase a photo package at the end of your self-guided tour. For only $40 you get 4 printed out pictures and access to all the digital downloads of the photos the staff takes. I think it’s a great deal and I love the photos we had taken, they will be memories that last a lifetime. You actually start off on the top floor in front of a green screen and the photographer will tell you different poses to make and I was so happy with the way those turned out.

There are more areas like an athlete section, wild west section and something new they had was a Marvel Super Heroes 4D section, this was really cool especially for my boys, they posed with their favorite heroes Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Tony Stark, and more!

You can expect to spend at least one hour walking through and taking photos, we were there closer to two-hours; my boys really enjoyed themselves. There were other people there while we were visiting, but it was not crowded and there are enough wax figurines to pose with one while someone else is posing with another and switch stations. They really put a lot of thought into the display and backgrounds behind the wax figures, many have themed music. Many have signs with facts and information, you can read and learn about that person or making that wax figurine.

They have a station near the end where you can make a wax hand souvenir for $15.

If you walk up to Madame Tussauds Museum Hollywood admission is $30.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can save $10 by purchasing your tickets on-line. They are also part of GO LA Card, so if you have an extended stay in Los Angeles I highly recommend that method to explore Madame Tussauds and more in Los Angeles.

If like me you are unsure that your kids would enjoy it, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as I was, your family will have so much fun acting, posing, taking pictures and exploring.

Some fun facts they had posted:

  • 500 million people worldwide have visited a Madame Tussauds – that’s more than the population of North America and Australia combined.
  • It takes approximately 800 hours to make a figure.

Number of hours to . . .

  • Sculpt a figure | 350 hours
  • Mold a figure | 175 hours
  • Insert hair & style figure | 145 hours
  • Make a pair of eyes | 15 hours
  • Make a set of teeth | 30 hours
  • Color a head | 50 hours
  • Costume a figure | 35 hours

There is also plenty to explore nearby like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Minnie Mouse received her star the day before we visited so it was fun searching for her new star. The TCL Chinese Theatre is next door, there is the Dolby Theatre, and there are the double-decker tour buses you could take while in Hollywood. There is also plenty of restaurants nearby.

Parking in Hollywood can be tricky, we chose a parking garage nearby Madame Tussauds. Remember to bring cash as some parking garages only accept cash, parking can range from $10-$25 depending on which lot you choose.

Madame Tussauds has many wax museums around the country I hope after reading about the fun we had you will explore one near you or while in Los Angeles visit the Madame Tussauds Hollywood.

Decorating and Personalizing with Sticker Kid 0 14

I had thought that I would start this article off with a walk down memory lane – and remind you of how neat it was to be a kid and have something with your name on it. Do you remember buying pencils or keychains with your name? As a kid, I loved that.

But I’ll be honest – as an adult – I still love it. I’m putting my name, our last name or initials all over the place! So in reality, who doesn’t love it at any age?

It’s still fun to find items in a store that has my name or my children’s name on it – but I think it’s even more fun and quite useful to put our name on whatever I want!

Sticker Kid sent over the cutest labels – and I got to do just that. They have so many sticker shapes, sizes, uses — they even have posters!

I spent the weekend labeling-up the kid’s stuff and a few things of my own.

You know what I love the most about Sticker Kid labels – other than the fun, personalization factor? The fact that it helps the kiddos (and me) keep track of their items. There used to be a time when I knew exactly which pencil and eraser belonged to my child. I also knew exactly how many items I sent with them out of the house. But, my brain is a little more frazzled and I need a little help remembering what I’ve purchased and sent with them. So, Sticker Kid can help me keep all of that in order.

Is that the backpack I bought for you, Joey? Yep! It has your name tag on it. Savannah, did I really buy you that water bottle? Yep! It has our name label on it.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one with a perpetual case of “mom brain”?
I had been worried that the labels and tags would be easily removable to the point where they could just fall off and be lost. But they are securely on each item.

You may be tempted to solely use the labels on the typical items such as school supplies, and shoes. But I think they’re going to work very well when the kids head to camp and go on day-adventures.

I plan to label items such as hair dryers, safety kids, flashlights, combs, leave-in conditioners, sunblock, pool toys, bite cream, and the list goes on. What else would you label?

I was excited to see their collection of kitchen labels and home decor items. Having just revamped one of my brands, I wanted to pay homage to it. These kitchen labels were the perfect item to keep it close.

I plan to use these to organize not only spices, but my espresso, flours, sugars, and oats.

So, the poster is probably my most favorite item of all. Because I love putting our names everywhere! Right now, I’m attaching it to this old calendar board I thrifted last year.

I painted the frame white, added wood to the inner portion and covered it with chalk paint. This will hang in our kitchen – but I may rotate the poster throughout the house.

I’d love to hear what your ideas on labeling are! What should I label next? Which item are you going to order or which one should I order next?

I love being creative but I’d love your suggestions as well. What would you use these labels on?

  • Iron-on name labels for clothes
  • Medium labels
  • Mini labels
  • “Preschool Super Pack” of 154 labels
  • Kindergarten pack with 150 name labels – perfect for toddlers
  • “School Mega Pack” pack of 214 labels
  • Large labels
