Each month, we’ll be releasing 2 episodes for Charm Bomb. One titled “Iggle bits” – which is club updates, and Ask JimBob, and the second one, which is our main episode of Charm Bomb, where we all chat about the monthly theme and do other fun segments and games.

Stewie, Toasty, Rosa, Hadas, and Summer are here to tell you all about what’s coming up for the IGGPPC this month!

Sign Up Theme:
This month’s theme is Animation Celebration, where we revel in our favorite animated classics and reflect on our beloved cartoons of years gone past. Sign up for a pen pal on the 15th of the month!

Craft Activities:
Join Noxy, our head of all things crafty, as she guides you through this month’s craft challenges. First, you’ll design a magazine that’s all about YOU, based on your geeky interests. Second, the paint challenge this month is to paint your favorite animated character. Use #igglecc and #igglepc to share your work!
