Quantcast

fpqw9cfhpfumoozfywqtWhile I don't have pictures of these just yet, the folks at Hasbro sent over details on a trio of exclusives headed for Toys "R"Us from the popular MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC series. The news comes from the American International TOY FAIR, which will get underway this morning in New York. Details below...

Step2As a 2013 Step2 Test Drive Blogger, I have the opportunity to try out some new toys right here at Rock Father HQ in our super-state-of-the-art testing facility. In this case, that means "family room," as we have a foot of snow on the ground and our yard looks more like Hoth from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK than an inviting play area. Our first assignment arrived here a couple weeks ago, and now it's time to reveal the details on a sweet new ride - and give YOU the opportunity to score one for your little one(s) while helping tiny hearts in the process.

The American International Toy Fair will begin this weekend in New York, and while The Rock Father won't be there in-person (maybe next year), the news continues rolling in here at Rock Father HQ. HASBRO will be rolling out a ton of new toys this weekend, and this morning I've got a preview of new offerings for kids of all-ages. With iconic brands like TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, STAR WARS, G.I. JOE, PLAY-DOH, FURBY, BABY ALIVE, TWISTER, and ANGRY BIRDS represented, there's a little something for everyone. Check out some highlights below.

You know what? Despite having building sets from several other makers, we have no K'NEX products here at Rock Father HQ. That might have to change soon, as the toymaker has announced new licensed sets involving KISS and THE BEATLES' YELLOW SUBMARINE. Personally, I'm really digging the KISS Tour Semi (the "Rock Stage Big Rig") that I'm about to show you below. The following new items will debut at Toy Fair in New York this weekend...

I'm bummed that I'm not going to Toy Fair. Eventually I'll figure out a good way to cover out-of-town events, but for now I'm pretty busy here at Rock Father HQ with The Rock Daughters. In the meantime, folks like the crew over at Disney Consumer Products are still kind enough to share some news with me, and tonight I've got a sneak-preview of Disney's Hot Toys of 2013... complete with pre-Toy Fair pictures. I already see a few items that are destined to arrive here later this year...

tf13buttonI had a Bachmann Train when I was a kid. It was one of their "Santa Fe" models, and I distinctly remember having to go to the local hobby shop for accessories. While I haven't yet gotten an HO Scale Train for my girls, I'm always tempted because Addie loves trains. Today comes some early Toy Fair news, as the popular characters from Disney's CHUGGINGTON are pulling into Bachmann Trains for an all-new line. Here's the message that I received here at Rock Father HQ...
