THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

#CommandTheForce with Imagination and STAR WARS COMMAND #ad

THE ROCK FATHER is a paid STAR WARS #CommandTheForce Ambassador and has partnered with Hasbro and Life of Dad for this adventure. May The Force Be With You, Always.

I've been trying to Command The Force since about 1977, inspired by a galaxy far, far away...

As part of the first generation to be inspired by the vast universe that George Lucas created, STAR WARS, like The Force itself, surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds people together. As a parent, STAR WARS has also become a bond between father and child, as my wife and I raise two girls as part of the next generation. Like their father before them, these little ones are both creating and recreating some of the galaxy's most epic battles as they Command The Force with the power of their own imaginations. Play is important, and sometimes to find new ways to play, one must look to the past.

Holiday Wish Guide: Girlmazing Radio Controlled Vehicles from Jada Toys

Holiday 2014Having two car-obsessed girls here at home, I've written at length in the past about girls being underserved when it comes to toy cars. Back in November of 2012 (can't believe it's been two years already), I did a guest post for TTPM entitled "Time to Play: An Octane-Obsessed Little Girl," then writing about Addie since Little Finn was just four months old at the time. Our journey into the world of toy cars had just begun, rekindling a passion of my own youth in the process. In the time that's passed, we've both bought and received countless toy cars, trucks and vehicles, many of which have been reviewed here at Rock Father HQ and shared with all of you. Now comes what is perhaps the first instance of a company addressing girls directly, with Jada Toys' introduction of their Girlmazing line of R/C vehicles.

Holiday Wish Guide: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mouseketool Sets by Just Play

If you have a little "Mousekedoer" at home, then they probably need some cool Mousketools to help get the job done... whatever that may be. For some cute DIY-action infused with the colorful vibe of Disney Junior's MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE comes a new line of tools and accessories from Just Play Toys that make great, and surprisingly affordable gifts.* We received the Handy Helper Tool Box, Handy Helper Workbench and Mousekedoer Deluxe Tool Set, all of which I'm including in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.

Holiday Wish Guide: Hands-on with the VTech InnoTab MAX Android Tablet

Since adding the VTech InnoTab MAX Android Tablet (sent here for for review) to my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide a few weeks back, I've had a number of friends inquire about our personal experiences with it - me being overly cautious, perhaps even being considered a "party pooper" when it comes to letting my girls run wild with the "screens." What do I think? Quite simply, at $109 (and I've seen them on-sale for under $100), it's a very good tablet. This 7" high-resolution 1020x600 unit is sturdy, responsive and has some great parental control features, but that does not mean it's 100% perfect. Here's some thoughts...

Preview: KT Tunstall soundtracks TINKER BELL and THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST

On March 3, DisneyToon Studios will follow-up this year's THE PIRATE FAIRY with TINKER BELL and THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST, an all-new Disney Fairies adventure, and one that we'll no doubt be enjoying here at Rock Father HQ (fact: Addie's bedroom has one full wall decorated with Disney Fairies artwork). Today comes word that songstress KT Tunstall has provided three songs to the film's soundtrack: "Float," "Strange Sight" and "1000 Years." Check out a preview of the opening sequence featuring "Float" below, along with some words from those involved...

Update: THE ROCK FATHER's #MovemberDads #ShaveOff powered by Panasonic & Neutrogena!

#MovemberOn November 1, I started my second Movember journey - committing myself to growing a mustache... or moustache, in support of Movember and their mission to raise funds and awareness to combat men's health issues including cancers and mental health (the cause I've chosen to support). This year, to raise awareness for my personal campaign, my friends at by Panasonic Neutrogena  have provided a fantastic Shaving Essentials kit for all of you to have a chance to win, but there's something a little disappointing: I'm 20 days into this and have ZERO donations. By this time last year, I already had a few hundred dollars in, and I wasn't even holding a giveaway to raise awareness. 631 entries since my original post on November 1, and it's time for an update - to let all of you see the ridiculous 'stache that I'm growing not only for the amusement of the public at large, but also to raise funds for this great cause. How have Panasonic & Neutrogena helped me keep this looking top-notch? Take a look... and yes, you still have a chance to win that sweet shaving kit!

Watch: The Full Trailer for CINDERELLA Arrives (and looks fantastic)...

I have to say, I'm pretty excited to see the next re-imagining of Disney's CINDERELLA. The updated live-action film from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures arrives in theaters on March 13, 2015 - bringing to life a new world based on the 1950 animated classic. Today, the first full trailer for the film arrived, along with a new poster featuring a CINDERELLA image by photographer Annie Leibovitz (I took my wife to meet her once), who also photographed the cast for the December issue of VOGUE. Check 'em out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
