This Incredibles 2 special feature is presented in collaboration between Clorox and The Rock Father™ #CloroxIncrediblyClean

Last summer, I found myself in Anaheim, California during one of the incredible adventures that I sometimes get to have as part of my work. Since our first daughter was born in 2009, I have largely been an “at-home dad,” shifting many of my powers toward domestic duties while my wife maintains a career outside the home. There are occasions, however, where I spring into action for a special mission, usually hopping on a plane and leaving our Third Coast home en route to the East or West Coast (mostly West). For the D23 Expo in Anaheim, I was working with Disney and wound up there in the room when a select audience got to see the very first footage from Disney•Pixar’s The Incredibles 2. Later, I called my wife in Illinois and told her that what I saw was like watching our lives unfold on-screen… maybe sans the laser vision, but definitely the messes. Oh yes, those incredible messes!

Funko just continues to surprise, constantly rolling out new scales and series that you didn't expect to want or need. This week comes news that they've got an all-new line called HeroWorld, and that it's launching exclusively at Target and Target.com this month. These 4" vinyl figurines are available in five-packs and two-packs, and the initial wave features five distinct series' - DC Comics, Five Nights at Freddy's, Teen Titans GO!, Power Rangers and Scooby-Doo! Check out a preview below...

Zuru's Hamsters in a House first hit the scene a couple of years ago - tiny, electronic, scurrying hamsters that roam around customizable plastic track. Now, the Hamsters are back with a second series, and it's following a popular trend: food. Hamsters in a House: Food Frenzy has launched at Target and Toys "R" Us for holiday 2017, allowing kids to expand the world of Hamtasia with a new collection of hamsters, playsets, track pieces and accessories!

With my wife and I being the parents of two girls, the world of 18" dolls and accessories has been a growing one here at Rock Father HQ. We've discovered over the years that there's some huge variance in quality, price and style between all the different brands that are out there, and as I've written about here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine in the past, there is no other brand that hits the mark more perfectly than Our Generation when it comes to the right balance. Available exclusively at Target stores here in the U.S., Battat's line of Our Generation Dolls and Accessories offers high quality toys that kids love, and a price that doesn't break the bank. After selling the dolls for more than a decade and finding them consistently among their best-selling toys, Target partnered with Battat to place expanded Our Generation Shops within 19 Target Stores this Fall - a trial run (which I covered here) that is likely a sign of big things to come. To celebrate the new shops and in-store events on December 10, along with Our Generation's inclusion as a featured pick in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide, THE ROCK FATHER and Battat have teamed-up to give you a shot at winning a $100 Target Gift Card to help with your holiday shopping! First, we'll take a look at some of the latest items from Our Generation...

The 18" Doll market is exploding right now, and when it comes to affordable options that don't sacrifice quality, I often recommend the Our Generation line of dolls and accessories by Battat, sold exclusively at Target here in the United States. We've reviewed some of the items here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine over the years, and there have been plenty of others that we've purchased that haven't made it into my virtual pages. Recently, I ran into the folks from Battat at The Toy Insider's HoliDAY of Play in NYC and took a peek at some of their new offerings, but what they didn't tell me was something that arrived in my email via press release last week - that they'd partnered with Target to create special "shop-in-shop" Our Generation destinations as a concept inside 19 select stores. Seeing as one of them happened to be located just a short drive from Rock Father HQ, I took our resident OG Doll expert, Addie, to check it out.
