THE ROCK FATHER is a 2014 PBS KIDS VIP (Very Involved Parent)PEG + CAT has been a fixture at Rock Father HQ even before it was released, my first experience with the math-based PBS KIDS series coming last May, when I met with creators Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson at the PBS Annual Meeting. Since that time, families have come to love PEG + CAT, and it was only a matter of time until this animated duo were given the proper musical treatment. PBS KIDS presents Peg and Cat's Really Big Album has just hit Amazon and iTunes (with a very BEATLES, Sgt. Pepper's-inspired cover), joining recent releases from DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD in the PBS KIDS music library, and setting the stage for further releases in the months ahead.

If you're a parent with a preschooler in the house, chances are, you've seen quite a few productions from Brown Bag Films... and don't even know it. These days, the animation house is behind several Disney Junior hits like DOC McSTUFFINS, HENRY HUGGLEMONSTER, and THE OCTONAUTS, along with fare like Nickelodeon's OLIVIA. But back in the 00's, they did a series of 52 shorts called I'M AN ANIMAL, which aired in over 160 countries. Now, they've put the first ten episodes online - for FREE - on Youtube, with more expected to roll-out soon. Check out the first ten below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Step2Of all the things that the late Spring arrival here in Illinois has brought with it, one of the highlights has been the coming of new toys. We've all been infected with a bad case of Cabin Fever this year, and that's only been made worse by the fact that we've had certain things here in "the warehouse" at Rock Father HQ that we've been unable to use right away, thanks to snow. The BIG example? The Step2 Alpine Ridge Climber & Slide, a brand-new offering for 2014 that's being sold Exclusively at Toys "R" Us Stores. As a Step2 Brand Ambassador, my family gets to try out many of the coolest new toys that Step2 has to offer, and this one was at the top of the girls' list. With the snow finally gone, our Alpine Ridge is set-up and ready to rock.

On April 8th, Disney Junior will release SOFIA THE FIRST: THE FLOATING PALACE on DVD. The special made waves last Fall with a primetime debut, and an appearance by Ariel - THE LITTLE MERMAID herself, and what a coincidence! She just happens to appear in the clip below.
