When FLOPPETS first hit my radar earlier this year, I'll be honest - I wasn't that interested. I'd only seen them online, but sometimes it takes first-hand experience to win someone over, and in this case, that's exactly what happened. I'd been expecting a package from a PR firm I deal with here at Rock Father HQ, and when it arrived, in the bottom of the box happened to be a handful of Floppets, probably tossed-in with hopes of catching my eye. They did - but they caught my daughter's eye first.
Tranquil Turtle by Cloud B
Our first daughter loved her Cloud B Sleep Sheep, and now our second daughter has the Tranquil Turtle. This little guy provides soothing sounds and light with an underwater pattern and wave motion, the perfect nighttime companion to help children sleep. If I were to describe the Tranquil Turtle in just one word, it would be "mesmerizing."
EatSmart Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale
For the health-conscious parent (or parent like me that's trying to drop some pounds), the Precision Tracker Bathroom Scale from EatSmart Products really is a phenomenal piece of technology for the home. Already in use here at Rock Father HQ, this scale is light-years ahead of any other scale we've ever owned previously. The glass-topped unit is exceptionally sleek, reminiscent of an iPad or other tablet, yet it's low-profile rests firmly against your floor. The programmable touch-screen stores user profiles for up to 10 users and enables tracking of weight between sessions.
Cuddle Barn Musical Plush (Pop Star-Inspired)
With their musical connection, this trio of animated plush from Cuddle Barn caught The Rock Father's eye. MOOS LIKE JAGGER dances and sings to his own version of the Maroon 5 hit, "Moves Like Jagger"; HEARTTHROB HENRY grooves to his version of the One Direction hit "What Makes You Beautiful"; SASSY SALLY is inspired by Selena Gomez, singing “Love You Like a Love Song”. Though Gomez recently split from boyfriend Justin Bieber (or are they back on now?), the latter plush makes a fine companion for Cuddle Barn's (Justin) BEAVER that was released last year and sings "Baby."
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (XBOX 360, PS3, Wii)
There's a reason I post those "Daddy Shooting Pixels" posts here on The Rock Father - sometimes Dad needs to fire up the XBOX 360 and blow off a little steam. My battlefield of choice tends to be Activision's CALL OF DUTY series, and while I was a little underhelmed by last years entry (Modern Warfare 3), this year brings CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2 - a step into the future (literally), as the action takes place largely in 2025. NOT FOR THE KIDS, this one is for grownups only!
