PJ MASKSLast week, I was back in New York City for the unveiling of The Toy Insider's 2016 Holiday Gift Guide - a collection of 2016's hottest toys, as chosen by the editors of The Toy Insider. What's different this year is that there's a "Rock Father Pick" in the mix - one that I've chosen as a newly-minted member of The Toy Insider Parent Panel. Of the nearly 200 toys featured this year, each member of the panel was tasked with choosing their "Top Pick" (see them all here), and for me the decision was an easy one: The PJ MASKS Headquarters Playset by Just Play. Hitting stores this Fall as part of a Toys "R" Us Exclusive collection of PJ MASKS toys, I'll be going in-depth on the Headquarters right here in the virtual pages of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine very soon, but for now here's a sneak-preview of the PJ MASKS line as the Holiday Shopping Season officially gets underway!

PJ MASKS TOYS

Just Play's first wave of PJ MASKS toys includes basic action figure 2-packs, individual light-up action figures, a 5-pack figurine set, mini plush, character masks, dress-up sets, and of course, the Headquarters Playset. Look for these at your local Toys "R" Us store, or online. Get 'em now, as they probably will become hard to find in the near future!

Fact: Romeo is up to no good, but what do you expect? #PJMasks #JustPlay #DisneyJunior #weknowplay
