You just never know what a child will gravitate toward. Despite having countless toys of her own, at some point within the past year, Adalyn grew fond of a plush bear by the name of Poopsie. Created in 2001 by Ty Inc. and released as both a Beanie Baby and Beanie Buddy, Poopsie is essentially A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh, crafted to appear similar in shape to "Classic Pooh," but in a color scheme closer to Disney's more mainstream version. I bought Poopsie for my wife long before we ever considered having kids.

Good news for the residents of Enchancia - Disney Junior has ordered a second season of their hit series, SOFIA THE FIRST.

Disney INFINITY looks dangerously cool. I say dangerously, because there's some time and money to be invested here, and I have a feeling that it could become a fixture here at Rock Father HQ this summer. Yesterday, the folks at Disney Interactive hit me with all the details on the fourth play set for Disney INFINITY, one based on the world of CARS. Need I say that Addie will probably love this?

I'm bummed that I'm not going to Toy Fair. Eventually I'll figure out a good way to cover out-of-town events, but for now I'm pretty busy here at Rock Father HQ with The Rock Daughters. In the meantime, folks like the crew over at Disney Consumer Products are still kind enough to share some news with me, and tonight I've got a sneak-preview of Disney's Hot Toys of 2013... complete with pre-Toy Fair pictures. I already see a few items that are destined to arrive here later this year...

Just over 31 years ago (November 28, 1981 to be exact), my parents took me to the Chicago Stadium for something special. The "World Premiere Edition" of WALT DISNEY PRODUCTIONS' WORLD ON ICE promised "a whole new concept in live and in person entertainment for every member of the family." It delivered on that promise, becoming forever a part of my most cherished childhood memories.

The internet is a bad place. After speculation, rumor, and even flat-out denial by Abrams himself, it's been officially revealed after news leaked earlier this week... J.J. ABRAMS WILL DIRECT STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Walt Disney Studios sent out the official press release a short time ago, complete with quotes from all the involved players. Interestingly enough, the day the Abrams news flared up again this week, I had both of my girls decked out in STAR WARS t-shirts, a picture of which I shared on The Rock Father social nets. Details on this new ripple in The Force below...
