We're reached that weird point of the year here at Rock Father HQ where the Back-to-School season is about to hit full swing, but it feels like summer never really got to hit its stride. For us it's probably because we had The Rock Daughters™ in summer programs all the way through June (no break between the end of school and the start of those), but even if we hadn't - is summer really ever long enough? For many, August will bring that long-awaited road trip, or perhaps another type of sunny vacation to give the too-short season a send-off. Speaking of a "sunny vacation," that's just what Peppa Pig is taking with her family in her latest DVD release, appropriately-titled, PEPPA PIG: SUNNY VACATION! Out August 2 through 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, the new collection features the 4-part "Sunny Vacation" special, plus 8 additional fun-packed Peppisodes. After thinking of the true renaissance that Peppa Pig is currently enjoying and what big fans the girls are (we have the toys from Jazwares, the Softee-Dough from Cra-Z-Art, t-shirts for each girl and the "Muddy Puddles" song is sung often), perhaps we should give Peppa and her family a "sunny vacation" (or a sunny "holiday," as they'd say in Peppa's UK homeland) right here? And, it would give me a fine excuse for a little #Toyography and a chance to give all of you at home a chance to win PEPPA PIG: SUNNY VACATION on DVD!
What do our pets do when we leave the house for the day? That's the question that THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS will answer, the fifth fully-animated feature-film collaboration from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures. Personally, I like to think that our dogs are all like Leonard - a prissy creature that cranks up the SYSTEM OF A DOWN the second we're out the door. I know better with our dogs, but one can only hope. With the film in theaters everywhere, Universal Pictures and Big Heart Brands have partnered with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine to give readers a shot at scoring a sweet THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS Prize Pack geared toward pet parents of canine companions. Ready to Rock?

Father's Day, or Rock Father's Day™ as it's known around here, is June 19th, and as everyone gears up for the annual round of "What Dad Really Wants...," I can tell you that what I want is very simple: time with my family, and fun. While my perfect Father's Day is a pretty low-key affair in which I like to hang out at home and spend some time in the yard, I'm all for a little detour to one of the kids' favorite places, which just so happens to be one of my favorite places... a place "Where A Kid Can Be A Kid," or where a big kid can still be a kid because he's never really grown up, but he happens to have kids of his own now. It's in that spirit of family fun that my friends at Chuck E. Cheese's are celebrating dads this year, serving-up some exclusive Father's Day offers that everyone can enjoy. Ticket Blaster for Dad? A chance to win a trip to Great Wolf Lodge? Read on, friends...
