31 Days of Halloween - Killer Kickstarter: Tote-Ems Plush Toy Monsters

For today's entry into 31 Days of Halloween 2014, we have something different - something not intended to be today's entry. In fact, TOTE-EMS MONSTER PLUSH came from out of the shadows and onto my radar via one of the darkest, most sinister places on the internet: Kickstarter. Now, I don't cover a lot of crowdfunding projects anymore (please, read this before submitting), but once in a rare while, something strikes me... or in this case, sinks its fangs in like a vampire's bite. It's a project perfectly-launched in time for Halloween, and one with a ton of potential. Toy designer David Murphy (a 15-year pro who's worked on a ton of Disney licenses including a little property called FROZEN) has created over 100 characters for his Tote-ems line, complete with full backstories for each. These little creatures have stretchy arms, a snapping function, and are ready to go wherever kids are. Watch the video below and let David give you the full scoop...


Giveaway: Win a Lalaloopsy Diaper Surprise Baby in The Rock Father's Lalalloween Extravaganza!

October has been Lalaloopsified - not just here at Rock Father HQ, but everywhere as the Lalaloopsy friends have been popping up everywhere from Nick Jr. to Netflix, in the toy aisles and beyond. In fact, Lalaloopsy is now the #1 collector brand for girls ages 2-11, and they recently announced that on November 15th they'll be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for The World's Largest Pajama Party in multiple locations (currently set at 34,000) and you can take part. My girls have caught the Lalaloopsy bug - recently getting decked-out in costumes based on Crumbs Sugar Cookie and Mittens Fluff N' Stuff from my friends at BuyCostumes (I'm one of their #OrangeTuesday Amassadors)... and they might have pulled me in, too. One of their most played-with toys these days is the Lalaloopsy Babies Diaper Surprise Peanut Big Top... yes, the one that "Magically Poops" Charms. Want to win a Diaper Surprise Baby for your own little one(s)? Read on, friends, because MGA Entertainment and THE ROCK FATHER have your chance!


Watch & Listen: Remember MY BUDDY and KID SISTER? They Just Went METAL...

Between toys and music - the stuff my girls and I are checking out now, along with all the retro goodness that I tend to get into, a lot of weird stuff crosses our paths and enters our space. Tonight I've got a sonic oddity to share, one that takes the 1980s MY BUDDY dolls (the inspiration for "Chucky" of the CHILD'S PLAY movies) and the accompanying KID SISTER that Playskool made, and gives their famous theme a "metal" spin. Check that out below, along with similar treatment given to classic commercials for JUICY FRUIT and SKIP-IT, each made by Shaun Callaghan of GIVE ZOMBIES THE VOTE. It reminds me of LESS THAN JAKE's TV EP


Royal Adventures: Rocking the Kingdom of Rock Fatheria with the #DisneyBeauties

Royal Adventures

When Lorde sang that "we'll never be Royals," it was immediately clear that she's not yet a parent. If she were, then she'd fully realize that it's not only possible, but incredibly likely to become Royals on a fairly frequent basis - a transformation that can occur several times a week, or during some phases - every, single day. You see, my wife and I are raising a pair of daughters - each of which occasionally displays traits that reflect the true spirit of a Disney Princess. The kindness of Snow White... the heroic spark for adventure of Merida... the grace of Sleeping Beauty... the wonder of Sofia the First, the attitude of Princess Leia (hey, she's Disney now!) and even, the cleaning skill of Cinderella. Yes, that, too. It's not just one thing that represents a Princess in The Kingdom of Rock Fatheria™, but a lot of elements that come together for a series of regular Royal Adventures.


Watch: FARMING SIMULATOR 2015 - Gameplay Trailer 3, Woodcutting

Last year, I was excited to discover FARMING SIMULATOR when it got ported over to Xbox 360. The International PC hit tapped into some old interests of mine (spending time on my Grandparents' farm, playing with those Ertl tractors) and it was cool to experience it in virtual form. Now, FARMING SIMULATOR 2015 is on the way, hitting PC and Download on October 30th, with a console release for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 set for early next year. Just before the weekend, the third gameplay trailer hit, this one focusing on a new gameplay element - woodcutting. It's a new activity that goes beyond the field, and into a whole new trade. Check out the video below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
