Quantcast

One of the biggest stories here on THE ROCK FATHER in the past few months was the news that toys based on NickJr's BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES were headed for Toys "R" Us. Reaction to that first-look at the new, high-octane vehicles from Mattel's Fisher-Price (especially on Facebook & Instagram) just solidified how much kids are loving the excitement of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) infused series. Now it's official - the BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES Toys have arrived in-store and online exclusively through Toys "R" Us - a launch perfectly-timed to the debut of DRAGON ISLAND DUEL, airing Monday, May 25th at 11am ET/PT on Nickelodeon. While we have not yet had a chance to check out any of the toys personally (our eyes are on the Die-Cast collection), I've heard from a few readers that have, and the folks at Nick did provide us with an early look at DRAGON ISLAND DUEL, which is officially Rock Father-approved!

Since it's premiere last Fall, Nickelodeon's BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES has been one of the more surprising hits in educational programming. The high-octane series based on a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) curriculum has made it's way into the coveted spot of be a "requested" show here at Rock Father HQ, particularly snagging the attention of 5 ½-year-old Addie. Out of Toy Fair last weekend came news that Mattel would be producing a line of toys through their Fisher-Price division, and tonight I've got your first look at some highlights from the new collection. These will be rolling out to select retailers this May, with a full Nationwide launch to take place this Fall. Stay tuned...

Now this is cool. On October 13 at 12pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon will introduce children viewers to the exciting world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) with the hour-long premiere of the brand-new, interactive animated series, BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES. Touted as "the first preschool show on TV to comprehensively cover all areas of STEM in every episode," BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES follows a monster truck named Blaze and his eight-year-old driver AJ. Figure in a nine-year-old little girl named Gabby that serves as head mechanic, and you can count me in for my little monster truck-loving girls as the series explores the physics of how things move - tackling problems through scientific inquiry and mathematics, while discovering the parts needed to make everyday technologies work. Check out a few preview clips below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
