When it comes to play kitchens, The Step2 Company has been the go-to source for fun and innovated models for years. This year they upped the game, releasing the modern Grand Luxe Kitchen to the assortment, but they've also done something completely different... and it's inspired by the sewers of New York City. The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Pizza Kitchen is the kind of pizzeria that Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello and Raphael would consider totally rad! There's a pizza oven, a "pop" (or "soda," depending on where you live) machine, electronic stove top burner, mini-fridge and more - along with all the accessories a kid could possibly need to serve up some TMNT-style pie. As a featured pick in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, I've teamed up with my friends at Step2 to give you a shot at winning one!

2017 is going to be a massive year at the movies, and on June 23rd it's the Autobots vs. Decepticons once more as Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters. The fifth film in the live-action franchise based on the iconic Hasbro toys finds filmmaker Michael Bay back at the helm with a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Isabella Moner, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro. As a huge fan of the Transformers overall, this one is one of my most-anticipated films for the coming year, and tonight Paramount Pictures unleashed the first teaser trailer. Check it out...

Another day, another new featurette from Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!  Tonight we get a brief look behind-the-scenes at Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, a new hero of the Rebellion, and one at the center of this new adventure - the tale of the brave Rebels tasked with hunting down the plans for the Death Star in the days prior to the events of 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope. Take a look...

We're just under two weeks out from the release of Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and as the anticipation continues to mount, each new glimpse into the throwback return to a galaxy far, far away is more enticing. Much has been said about the "lived-in" quality of the film, one that rightfully embraces its place in the timeline, taking place in the days just prior to the events of 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope. With that comes creatures (many of which we already have action figures for) that are created by skilled craftsmen and women rather than pixels created in a computer. Tonight comes a new featurette that takes a look at just that, along with a new TV spot... "Worth It." Check 'em out!

With my wife and I being the parents of two girls, the world of 18" dolls and accessories has been a growing one here at Rock Father HQ. We've discovered over the years that there's some huge variance in quality, price and style between all the different brands that are out there, and as I've written about here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine in the past, there is no other brand that hits the mark more perfectly than Our Generation when it comes to the right balance. Available exclusively at Target stores here in the U.S., Battat's line of Our Generation Dolls and Accessories offers high quality toys that kids love, and a price that doesn't break the bank. After selling the dolls for more than a decade and finding them consistently among their best-selling toys, Target partnered with Battat to place expanded Our Generation Shops within 19 Target Stores this Fall - a trial run (which I covered here) that is likely a sign of big things to come. To celebrate the new shops and in-store events on December 10, along with Our Generation's inclusion as a featured pick in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide, THE ROCK FATHER and Battat have teamed-up to give you a shot at winning a $100 Target Gift Card to help with your holiday shopping! First, we'll take a look at some of the latest items from Our Generation...
