As the start of summer fast-approaches, it's a prime time to "Get Caught Reading!" As such, The Jim Henson Company recently teamed-up with the Association of American Publishers (AAP) to offer a pair of new "Get Caught Reading" Posters - available FREE to educators or anyone (+ $5 s/h) - featuring the DOOZERS and ENCHANTED SISTERS. These new posters join a trio of earlier releases from The Jim Henson Company, including characters from PBS KIDS' DINOSAUR TRAIN and SID THE SCIENCE KID, along with the Sprout/NBC Kids hit, PAJANIMALS. To celebrate the new offerings, and the start of summer, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and The Jim Henson Company will be getting a couple of readers set-up with copies of ENCHANTED SISTERS: SUMMER'S FRIENDSHIP GAMES, the latest book in the ENCHANTED SISTERS series from Bloomsbury Children's Publishing!

It was more than two years ago already that I reviewed the Season Three Premiere of STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY BITTY ADVENTURES. While the switchover between The Hub Network and Discovery Family Channel may have stalled things a bit, the fourth season is finally on the way (premiering June 20th), and new viewers are finding the series through the themed DVD collections released by 20th Century Fox. On the latest collection, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY BEST IN SHOW, we're taken back to that Season Three Premiere, and one of the reasons why I loved it so much: Huckleberry Pie. Yes, the sole male resident of Berry Bitty City finally made his modern-day debut, and the latest DVD collection focuses on something very close to his heart - pets. Want to win a copy of this new DVD? Read on, friends, because THE ROCK FATHER and the FHE Insiders just might get you hooked-up!

Returned, these #CerealWars have. General Mills has once again teamed-up with Disney/Lucasfilm to bring STAR WARS fans and cereal enthusiasts some galactic goodness in the form of six classic STAR WARS posters, reproduced in miniature and packed inside specially-marked boxes of select General Mills cereals, including Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Cookie Crisp and Reese’s Puffs.

Kick-Off Spring with Scotts Plus OxiClean Outdoor Cleaner and a $50 AMEX Giveaway!

Five years ago, right after my wife and I bought this house and moved in, I took to the outside with a spray bottle of outdoor cleaner to attack the siding and deck. Not only did it not work very well, but shortly afterward I discovered that I'd completely ruined a brand new t-shirt and shorts. The reason? Overspray from chlorine bleach, which I'd neglected to notice was the primary ingredient. Not cool. With evolving landscape and gardening projects, we're always looking for new and safe ways to do things, and that's why Scotts® Plus OxiClean™ Outdoor Cleaner was immediately intriguing - the ability to get the house, deck and all of the girls' Step2 play equipment nice and clean without harming our plants. Plus, it's from Scotts - a trusted brand whose products I use regularly here at Rock Father HQ.


Giveaway: Win a STAR WARS New Era Cap, Metal Earth Model Kit and SW X-Wing Miniatures Game!

Is The Force strong with you? Think you have the power to turn the tables... to bend the odds into your favor? Han Solo said to "never tell" him the odds, so we won't get into that except to say that "many will enter, few will win" (actually, just one), because in honor of the recent release of The STAR WARS Digital Movie Collection, I'm giving you a chance to win three cool items that arrived here from The Walt Disney Studios and were featured in my special edition of UNBOXED last month. From STAR WARS Day (May 4, 2015) through May 18, readers will have chances to score a cool STAR WARS prize pack featuring nearly $100 of prizes from a galaxy far, far away!
