My kids are very fortunate that we're in a position in which they get to try out a lot of cool toys at the start of each season. As part of my gig as a Step2 Test Drive Blogger, one of our favorite toys for Fall 2013 is the new Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen, which I recently reviewed at length, right here on The Rock Father. Available as a Toys "R" Us Exclusive this season in both gender-neutral and pink color schemes, the folks at Step2 and The Rock Father are going to get one lucky reader hooked up with one of these great kitchens for their little one(s)... in their choice of color!
With Fall comes new Fashion for the little ones, and today my friends at gDiapers have officially unveiled their Fall 2013 Collection of super-cute eco-friendly diaper covers and matching outfits. As in the past, gDiapers and The Rock Father are celebrating the new release with a rockin' giveaway. We're giving parents a chance to WIN their choice of the gLotus Dress and gPants, or the gVeggie Tee and gPants!
This should probably be in my "For Grownups" section here on The Rock Father, but since these are technically toys, I'm rolling with it right here. After announcing his autobiography for November, coinciding with the release of the second film about his life, Action 4 News Anchorman RON BURGUNDY has revealed that he will now be immortalized in action figure form, with a December release planned.
On December 3, Shout! Factory in association with Hasbro Studios will release TRANSFORMERS PRIME: SEASON THREE - BEAST HUNTERS on Blu-Ray and DVD in collectible, 2-disc sets. The third and final season of the Emmy Award-winning series recently wrapped it's run on The Hub, and will now be available just in-time for the Holidays. Check out the full specs on the home releases below.
When the folks at VTech sent us their new 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset for review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house), I had some mixed feelings about it. We already have toy kitchens, and we already have toy shopping carts. But this one is different... a transformer of sorts that combines two toys in one, while bringing into the mix the electronic learning element that VTech is famous for. After having ours for nearly a month, the time has come to share some thoughts with all of you.
After paying tribute to THE BEATLES back in 2010 with their Lullaby Versions of The Beatles, the crew at Roma Music Group has come back around to the solo recordings of JOHN LENNON, re-imagining them as "lush instrumental lullabies" perfect for introducing Lennon's music to the newest addition of your family. Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star: Lullaby Versions of John Lennon (out October 8) will feature 14 of the legendary performer's biggest hits and fan favorites, all reworked for baby. Roma Music Group just hit The Rock Father with full details on the collection, which is available for pre-order on iTunes now. Those who pre-order will receive "Imagine" as an instant download, and that track can be streamed below, right now...
