THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

And the 2014 National Toy Hall of Fame Nominees are...

Each year, the National Toy Hall of Fame opens up for public nominations for which toys should be considered as finalists for induction into the Hall of Fame. From those dozen finalists, just two will become official inductees, and for 2014 the field has been announced - and it's tough. In reality, all twelve of the finalists should be in the Hall of Fame, but since just two will make the cut, I'm curious which ones all of YOU think should be crowned...

Talk Like A Pirate Day: Sail the Seas with a Radio-Controlled Playmobil Pirate Ship! #TalkLikeAPirateDay

Ahoy, Mateys! Since everyone is talking like a pirate today, I'm highlighting some pirate-based fun here on THE ROCK FATHER! Did you know that PLAYMOBIL has an entire Playmobil Pirates collection? Well, they sure do, and the pinnacle item of that collection has to be the Radio-Controlled Pirate Ship with Underwater Motor.

Back-to-School: Celebrate National #PlayDohDay with Sculpts Inspired-by FERRIS BUELLER, CLUELESS and More!

Did you know that September 16 is National PLAY-DOH Day? It's true, every year there's a day-long celebration of Hasbro's iconic modeling compound, and for 2014, Hasbro has placed a Back-to-School spin on the affair, having their master sculptors lend their skill to creating some true works of art based on schools and students from classic movies and television shows. The sculpts include Cher’s plaid back-to-school suit from CLUELESS, the infamous Burn Book wielded by The Plastics in MEAN GIRLS, Rydell High’s infamous T-Birds & Pink Ladies jackets from GREASE, Mike & Sulley from Disney's MONSTERS UNIVERSITY and two classic scenes inspired by FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF and SAVED BY THE BELL. See them all, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

Toyography: Best Photobomb Ever? Harry Potter shows appreciation for STAR WARS' C-3PO & R2-D2

Strange things can happen when you're just minding your own business and trying to do a little "toyography" - hoping to create some stylish pictures of my children's toys. Last night, while the girls and I were playing downstairs, I decided to attempt a couple of cool-looking shots involving a couple of figures from Hasbro's STAR WARS collection - namely C-3PO and R2-D2. What happened next is that one of our dogs - the one named Harry Potter (my wife is a big J.K. Rowling fan) - decided it was time to drop himself right into the shot, rolling into frame (seen above) and standing to attention (seen below). He either ruined the shot, or made it better. Perhaps these really ARE the Droids he was looking for... or perhaps The Force was strong with him? Take a look, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
