Watch: Super-Fan Builds Crafts BATMAN Tumbler Batmobile Baby Stroller based on THE DARK KNIGHT Trilogy

Why did I not think of this a few years ago? I mean, I was actually on the set of BATMAN BEGINS back in 2004 and stuck my head inside the Tumbler for a few... but that was in my pre-parenting days, and the thought of crafting a baby stroller based upon Christopher Nolan's vision of The Batmobile didn't even cross my mind. But for one lucky Bat-fan, his little Caped Crusader is riding in-style thanks to the Hollywood FX crew behind SUPER-FAN BUILDS. On this week's show, they've taken an Evenflo car seat and surrounded it by all the Tumbler goodness that one would need for fighting thugs in Lil' Gotham. Check this out...

Baby Music: Lullaby Versions of MEGADETH Hits the Streets (and the nursery)!

Watch: Fisher-Price presents WISHES FOR BABY - A Short Film Welcoming some of 2015's New Babies...

If you're like us, your house is probably loaded with toys from Fisher-Price. Coming out of Christmas, our girls (particularly Little Finley, whose favorite toys are Little People) have some new Fisher-Price toys to help fuel imaginative and adventure play, including the full run of the Magic of Disney collection, and the "Grand Finale" of the day - the FROZEN Power Wheels Ford Mustang. While my wife and I grew up on Fisher-Price toys ourselves (I still have my "Jolly Jalopy" from the 70s), our daughters' collection started at birth, and in that spirit comes a new short film from Fisher-Price called WISHES FOR BABY. Filmed in the earliest hours of 2015 and released within 24 hours, the film shows real parents in the US, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, Bangladesh, and Poland as they hold their babies for the very first time, "showing that the best possible start in life begins with love." Check it out below...

[CLOSED] Giveaway: Win a VUSEE Universal Baby Monitor Shelf!

Just a short time ago, I dealt with one of modern parenting's endless challenges: How, and where to safely hang the baby monitor? We faced that challenge twice, and both times it was the same - cautiously working to make sure the wires weren't going to get grabbed by our priceless little girls as they slept in their cribs below. Another Dad, Iowa-based inventor Gerald Beranek, also faced the challenge, but he did something about it: He created the Vusee Universal Baby Monitor Shelf. For the past few months, Gerald and his wife have been selling their patent-pending #MadeInTheUSA design direct through his website, and now they've teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER to get three (3) lucky readers hooked-up with a Vusee of their own to help keep a safe eye on their own little ones!

Giveaway: Win a 4moms mamaRoo Infant Seat from PishPoshBaby!

I'm still impressed at how far baby products come in such a short period of time. Five years and two kids into this whole "parenting" thing, and the new products out now often trump what my wife and I had for our girls just a few years ago, and one example is the 4moms mamaRoo - an infant seat that blows away typical "bouncers" or "swings" by emulating the motions of real parents - Moms and Dads like YOU. Now, PishPoshBaby has teamed-up with my friends Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a 4moms mamaRoo of their own - and they've invited THE ROCK FATHER to take part in spreading the word on this great opportunity to win a fantastic prize for your little "new release."
