Quantcast

Since I didn't go to the recent American International Toy Fair in-person, I've digitally received a lot of official info on some great toys for 2013 that I'm still sorting through as time allows. One line I've been wanting to preview for you is the upcoming offerings from Hasbro's MY LITTLE PONY collection. Based on The Hub's hit series, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, there's a lot of new toys on the way in addition to the Toys "R" Us Exclusives that I previously posted here on The Rock Father.

Thirty years out from the 1980s and everything old is new again. I honestly never thought I'd be sitting here as a parent introducing my children to the same things that I enjoyed as a kid, but flip on The Hub and there they are: CARE BEARS, MY LITTLE PONY, POUND PUPPIES, G.I. JOE, TRANSFORMERS... the Saturday Morning staples, rebooted and enhanced to modern specifications with new stories for a new generation. And then you have STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE, a character relaunched a few times, and doing great as the third season of STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE'S BERRY BITTY ADVENTURES is set to premiere this Saturday (2/23) with back-to-back episodes at 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. ET (encores Mondays, 11:30 a.m. ET).

The DVR is already set here at Rock Father HQ, as my oldest will no doubt be excited for the Season Finale of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC on The Hub. The action takes place this Saturday, with a special morning marathon capped-off by the Princess Coronation Episode in which Twilight Sparkle will be transformed. The folks from The Hub sent over full details, along with a video preview and a little info on a brand-new episode of LITTLEST PET SHOP which will follow MLP. Check 'em out below!

I love SESAME STREET. Even better, my girls love Sesame Street. It's near-daily viewing via PBS KIDS and Sprout, and we have a ton of Sesame Street toys, books, and games. One of the first items I wrote about for The Rock Father back in 2011 was LET'S ROCK ELMO!, which I thought should've been a massive hit. Considering that I've seen it on clearance (I pre-ordered it at Toys "R" Us and paid full price), it seems it wasn't. But... It's a big hit here at Rock Father HQ, and that's what matters. Now, the details are out on the 2013 lineup of SESAME STREET items from PLAYSKOOL, and things are looking good. Here's the latest from TOY FAIR in New York...

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...
