This fall, Mattel's iconic Barbie became the star of an all-new mobile app based on the popular Netflix series, Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse. From Budge Studios, Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures brings the toys and characters to life in new ways. Kids can create their own Dreamhouse, get to know Barbie's friends, join a band (I still have a lot of love for Barbie and the Rockers), take care of the pets and so much more. And now there's a big holiday update that features tree decorating, gift wrapping, holiday decorating and even baking (gingerbread, anyone?). Available for download on iOS and Google Play, Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures is a lot of fun, and in the spirit of the season, Mattel & Budge have teamed-up with The Rock Father™ for a little reader giveaway for a fun Barbie prize pack that includes a Barbie Water Play Doll and Barbie Scooter!

When seeking out that perfect holiday gift, I always find that it's much easier to shop for kids than it is for grownups. I even make it hard for my loved ones to shop for me (and they know that they don't have to) because I don't really ask for anything and find it hard to come up with ideas. But since I'm always on the lookout for new products that will be useful and make life easier in new and sometimes unexpected ways, I get excited when I find something truly awesome that could really be great for a lot of people. The WORX Pegasus Work Table and Sawhorse fits the bill - and that's because it's not just great for DIY'ers, contractors and those who work in construction. There's a lot of potential for use by almost anyone, from crafters and model makers to photographers, artists and everyday homeowners who could use a proper work space that's rugged, portable and easy-to-use.
Black Friday is behind us, and that means we're rolling full-steam ahead into Cyber Monday and Cyber Week! To celebrate, The Rock Father™ and Friends are co-hosting the #GameStopCyberMonday Twitter Party - Powered by PowerA!
When it comes to holiday specials, Jim Henson's Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas has always ranked among my favorites - one that I'd eagerly await seeing each year when HBO would get around to airing it again... those primitive years before home video really caught on. Despite numerous releases on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray over the years, the soundtrack never got a proper release, and that's left fans like myself a little bit bummed. Paul Williams is a legend, having penned the Academy Award-nominated song "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie, "Evergreen" from A Star Is Born and many other #1 hits (he was also Little Enos in Smokey and the Bandit) and his music from Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas has been fueling singalongs for over 40 years. Now, just in time for the 2018 holiday season, the world premiere release of the soundtrack has finally taken place and Varèse Sarabande Records and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a chance to win the all-new CD!
There's a pretty good chance that you've seen Magic Tracks at some point in the past year or two - colorful, snap-together tracks with battery-operated cars that blaze along them. Now, just in-time for the 2018 Holiday Wish Guide™, there's Magic Tracks Turbo RC - the next evolution of the popular racers. The best part? These new sets work with all older Magic Tracks, allowing kids to grow and expand their raceways for endless fun! Just snap any track pieces together and create your customized speedway that moves like magic! Grab a remote and press go! The cars zoom around the neon colored track, and kids can slam on the brakes, shift into reverse, honk the horn and more as they navigate twists, turns, ramps and straightaways... even going into Turbo mode! Check out a preview and all the details below, along with a chance to win a set, brought to you in collaboration between OnTel Products Corporation and The Rock Father™!
