5 Fun Facts about Drew Brockington

  1. Drew Brockington lives in Minneapolis with his family.
  2. He is proud of his week at Space Camp.
  3. He loves cheese.
  4. His dog’s name is Leroy.
  5. Drew’s YouTube Channel is called, “Let’s Go Do Fun Stuff” (coincidentally that is Family Fun Twin Cities’ tag line, too.)

Let’s Do Fun Stuff Together

Drew shares stories and crafts inspired by his favorite CatStronauts character, Waffles. The CatStronaut joins him in puppet form, in his YouTube drawing show, “Let’s Do Fun Stuff Together.”  Each of videos is approximately half an hour. For kids who love his books or want to learn to draw alongside a real graphic novelist, they are really fun to watch. I wrote this entire entry with a split screen, so my kids could continue to watch the videos after I checked them out.

CatStronauts Fun and Toys

There are several unlicensed astronaut toys out there. A friend of ours bought one in Japan last year. Licensed toys are hard to find. Drew had a limited edition Waffles Plush on his Brockart Web Store (but they are currently sold out).

In Person Appearances

If you want to meat Waffles, he accompanies Drew on in-person visits to schools and bookshops.
