Jim Henson's PAJANIMALS have been a beloved part of our bedtime routine here at Rock Father HQ ever since we first started seeing them on Sprout. Now, with Saturday morning appearances on NBC Kids, the Pajanimals crew are becoming increasingly familiar to a growing audience of kids and their grownups. One of the new items from TOMY's Pajanimals line is the APOLLO GOODNIGHT PROJECTOR, a perfect gift idea for ages Birth+, and an entry into my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide here on The Rock Father.
All month, my friends at Sprout have been gearing up for Halloween with their ongoing Sprout Halloween Parade, in which kids can march in place in their Halloween costumes and use the "Send to Sprout" App to submit their video to become a part of the user-generated parade. Now, we're just a week away from when the real treats start rolling on October 28, and the Sunshine Barn takes on a Halloween theme for the Sunny Side Up Show (airing live, 9am-noon ET) and the 24-hour preschool network starts airing some terrific Halloween content. Here's a preview...
Do you have a kind kid at your house? If so, you can help Chica and my friends at Sprout in their goal to reach 1 Million Acts of Kindness! With just 408,454 acts reported as of this writing, time is running out as the clock ticks down to the September 30th goal. Additionally, your child could be Sprout's Kindest Kid. Families are asked to provide a photo and short description at this location explaining how their child helped the family, a friend, the community, an animal, the Earth or any other positive everyday contributions.
On October 29, BAZE AND HIS SILLY FRIENDS will release their new album, THE BEST DAY EVER! Since we're just a couple of weeks into the new school year, the band is offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of one new track from the album, the appropriately-named, "School Days." Grab the song by clicking the guitar on this page.
