MARIA BAMFORD is busy, the Minnesota native long-ago leaving behind "The Land of 10,000 Lakes" in favor of the Los Angeles River.

A Fun-Tastic Year for TALKING ANGELA...

Yesterday, TALKING ANGELA celebrated her birthday, though the fashion-forward feline declined to let anyone know exactly how old she is.

Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway: VTech Kidizoom Action Cam

When it comes to high-quality, innovative technology-based play for kids, I can't think of anyone that's released as much cool stuff over the past few years as VTech. Real-world functionality and durability is the hallmark of their Kidizoom line, and for 2015 the Kidizoom Action Cam makes my annual Holiday Wish Guide, a fitting follow-up to last year's excellent Kidizoom Smartwatch. We received a review sample back in August, and The Rock Daughters have been using it regularly to document the big world around them. It's the exact thing that I would've absolutely LOVED to have growing up - back in a time when I made movies with Super 8mm film and audio cassette tapes. Having a working video camera at a young age can inspire later pursuits (I speak first-hand on this), and in an age where grownups have their GoPro's, the Kidizoom Action Cam is the perfect thing for budding action filmmakers. In the spirit of the Holiday Season, VTech and THE ROCK FATHER Magazine are giving you a shot at winning one of these for your own little Director! Wanna see how it works? Check out some footage shot by six-year-old Addie...

Review: MY FRIEND CAYLA - Cute Concept, Clunky, Creepy Reality...

I do believe this is a "first" here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine - I've removed a toy from my annual Holiday Wish Guide.  When making my yearly picks for items to recommend, there's a lot of factors that come into play while evaluating both items we've purchased and samples that we've received. Occasionally, having something for an extended period of time can find opinions shaped differently, and that's usually why I like to "live with" things for awhile when I can - having time to really experience them with the family and the kids... a point that sometimes can irk marketers that occasionally look for a "quick flip" review to be posted within a couple weeks of sending a sample. When it comes to the Wish Guide, the one thing that it all boils down to is the answer to a question: "Would my wife and I buy this for our kids?" With MY FRIEND CAYLA, the answer is simple - No, we would not.
