Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway: ClickN KIDS Tablet 2 - an Intel Tablet for Kids AND Grownups!

With Christmas just two weeks ahead, I'm still hearing from lot of parents that are looking for the right tablet for their little ones. Me being "technologically cautious" and fairly limiting in tech for my own kids, I evaluate a lot of items as they come, and this year has brought some great tablets into an increasingly competitive landscape. Competition is good, and one of the late entries into the race is the ClickN KIDS Tablet 2 by CNK Digital. This 7" Android Tablet is powered by Intel, and what's really intriguing is that it's the first tablet of it's kind to offer DPI (Dual Purpose Interface) technology, allowing kids and grownups alike to use and enjoy the same device under very different conditions. The folks at CNK and I have teamed-up for a Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway in which one lucky reader will receive one of these in blue (they're available for purchase in six colors, on Rollback at Walmart right now for just $69.99). The two caveats are that I can't get this to you in time for Christmas, so we're gonna keep this one running through winter break, and while I did receive one for review I just received it and have not had a chance to do a thorough review, so I cannot yet comment based on personal experience with it. That said, are you ready to learn more and enter?

Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway: SOL Republic PUNK Speaker

Holiday 2014A few times a year, I tend to check out some of the latest in audio-based gadgets, several of which I report on here at THE ROCK FATHER. A couple of the coolest this year came from SOL Republic. Their RELAYS In-Ear Headphones have become my go-to set for use at the gym (trumping some other brands I'd been using), and their PUNK Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a fine choice for being ultra-portable in that it fits in the palm of your hand and can be mounted onto a bike or backpack. I'm not only featuring both of these great items in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide, but giving all of you a shot at winning the PUNK Wireless Bluetooth Speaker!

Giveaway: Can You Defeat the Elf on the Shelf? Win an [adult swim] ROBOT CHICKEN Stocking! #EffTheElf

Robot Chicken'Tis the season... to be mischievous! Or so says that annual visitor from the North Pole, the jovial chap in the red stocking cap, but not the man named 'Claus." I'm speaking, of course, about The Elf on the Shelf. While a family tradition for many, these "scout elves" are known to move around one's home acting as a sentry for Santa Claus himself, reporting on who's been naughty and nice in the weeks ahead of the big day, Christmas. These good elves are noble in their duties, but as sites like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post (who practically has an entire section of Elf-related snark) have shown us over and over again... there's some bad elves in the bunch. With that, THE ROCK FATHER has teamed-up with ROBOT CHICKEN and [adult swim] to give YOU a chance to say #EffTheElf! This is your chance to have some fun taking pictures of your own dolls and action figures out-elfing those effing elves, and in the process gain a chance to win an ultra-rare [adult swim] stocking packed with ROBOT CHICKEN goodies, including the new ROBOT CHICKEN CHRISTMAS SPECIALS DVD from Warner Home Video! Get out your camera and your toys... it's time to play and do a little toyography!

With the Holiday Season officially upon us. it's time to start thinking of those "big" gifts - the ones that kids will remember and talk about for the rest of their lives. One cool item is a ride-on toy, and Long Island, New York-based GiGGo Toys is producing some new rides that will have the kids rockin' the road (sidewalk) in style. Hot off the release of their Little Indian Vintage Motorcycles comes a new ride-on for kids ages 2-4: The NYPD Motorbike!

[CLOSED] Giveaway: Win a hiku Shopping List Scanner & $50 Visa Gift Card!

Ready for something interesting? We've all forgotten our shopping lists (I'm especially guilty of leaving the paper on the counter), and sometimes we even forget to add items to it. Now comes the hiku - a new scanning device that makes creating a shopping list a breeze. It's magnetic and attaches right to your fridge so it's always handy and ready when you are. Simply scan an item or speak the name of a product that you need into the hiku and it's automatically added to the hiku app shopping list. Each item is separated by the product type so you don't have to deal with the frustration of returning to a previous aisle because you forgot an item. How would you like to WIN a hiku of your own, and get a $50 Visa Gift Card to give your shopping trip a jump start? My friends at Thrifty Nifty Mommy & Viva Veltoro have teamed up with hiku to help make that happen for one lucky reader!
