logounclemiltonNot long ago, the folks at Uncle Milton Toys introduced me to something new they were whipping up called WALL FRIENDS. Together with their WILD WALLS, these new lines of licensed accessories are aiming to brighten the bedrooms, and enlighten the imaginations of a lot of kids as they begin rolling out to stores this year. After looking at the Wall Friends on virtual paper, I said that it was an idea that kids and parents were just gonna love... and later this week, I'll find out if that's true as a DOC McSTUFFINS Wall Friends set and LIGHTNING McQUEEN Wild Walls kit just arrived here at Rock Father HQ today... coincidentally, just as they've arrived in select Target stores. This is where you come in, and have a chance to brighten your wallet...

To celebrate the arrival of Wall Friends and Wild Walls at select Target locations (participating store list here), Uncle Milton is having a contest. Now, this is not a promotion hosted by or affiliated with THE ROCK FATHER (just have to throw that out there), but it's cool - so I'm helping to spread the word.
