Holiday Wish Guide: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mouseketool Sets by Just Play

If you have a little "Mousekedoer" at home, then they probably need some cool Mousketools to help get the job done... whatever that may be. For some cute DIY-action infused with the colorful vibe of Disney Junior's MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE comes a new line of tools and accessories from Just Play Toys that make great, and surprisingly affordable gifts.* We received the Handy Helper Tool Box, Handy Helper Workbench and Mousekedoer Deluxe Tool Set, all of which I'm including in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.

On March 3, DisneyToon Studios will follow-up this year's THE PIRATE FAIRY with TINKER BELL and THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST, an all-new Disney Fairies adventure, and one that we'll no doubt be enjoying here at Rock Father HQ (fact: Addie's bedroom has one full wall decorated with Disney Fairies artwork).

Check out a preview of the opening sequence featuring "Float" below, along with some words from those involved...

Watch: The Full Trailer for CINDERELLA Arrives (and looks fantastic)...

I have to say, I'm pretty excited to see the next re-imagining of Disney's CINDERELLA. The updated live-action film from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures arrives in theaters on March 13, 2015 - bringing to life a new world based on the 1950 animated classic. Today, the first full trailer for the film arrived, along with a new poster featuring a CINDERELLA image by photographer Annie Leibovitz (I took my wife to meet her once), who also photographed the cast for the December issue of VOGUE. Check 'em out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Rides: Hands-on with Mattel's STAR WARS HOT WHEELS Tusken Raider & 501st Clone Trooper

Hot Wheels logoOver the past few weeks, some vehicles inspired by a galaxy far, far away have been landing in the diecast aisles of retailers everywhere, with Walmart and Target being particularly infested by Imperial and Rebel forces. The first-ever partnership between Mattel and STAR WARS has given birth to the HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Collection, one component of which is the new line of "character cars" - vehicles that could be considered as being from an alternate reality - custom rides that take their design cues from the characters that generations have come to know and love. While the first wave has been out for a bit (and I will cover in-depth shortly), the two newest cars to hit the pegs come from the "B" assortment - the TUSKEN RAIDER and 501st CLONE TROOPER. Both of these vehicles have rolled into Rock Father HQ this past week, so let's take a look...

Holiday Wish Guide: DOC McSTUFFINS Get Better Talking Mobile (and more)...

Holiday 2014There is only DOC McSTUFFINS, or so said the wise Ron Swanson once upon a time... a oft-quoted meme around these parts. As much as the kids love Doc McStuffins, it's quite parent-approved here at Rock Father HQ as well, and as such, the girls have a full collection of items that could easily be found in Doc's clinic. Last Christmas, the Get Better Checkup Center was the hot item of the season, with scalpers hoarding them and re-selling as if it was the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of 1983. Luckily for us, "Santa" was scoping out the local Walmarts in the weeks preceding Christmas, and after visiting countless remote stores, he happened to stop by the closest to HQ around 11pm one night just as two were being stocked on the shelves. While the odds of lightning striking twice are slim, Just Play Toys is back with another must-have Doc McStuffins toy this Holiday Season, with the Get Better Talking Mobile - which I'm calling my #1 Holiday Wish Guide toy of the year.
