There's nothing like seeing a movie in 4DX. While the communal experience of seeing a movie on the big screen with an audience is always special, 4DX takes things to an entirely different level - from watching the movie to almost living in it. This fully immersive cinematic experience brings motion chairs and environmental effects like rain, snow, fog, wind, bubbles, lighting, and scent into each dedicated 4DX auditorium where they work in perfect synchronicity to transport audiences into the story unfolding onscreen. There's 10 4DX locations across the U.S., one of which our family has visited many times - Marcus Gurnee Cinema at Gurnee Mills. Now, with a ton of great films yet to come in 2018, The Rock Father™ Magazine and 4DX USA have teamed-up for a giveaway. Two readers will each score a prize pack that includes a pair of 4DX theater vouchers and some gear from the recent TOMB RAIDER film. You can use the vouchers to see an upcoming film in 4DX (winners will have to live close to one of the 10 locations). Right now PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING is playing, with Steven Spielberg's READY PLAYER ONE on-deck. What do you want to see in 4DX?

There's certainly no shortage of collectible figurines available out there, and it seems that everybody has something cool going on. My friends at Entertainment Earth sell many of those, but they've also gotten into the action as a toymaker themselves, putting a decidedly retro spin into action for their own line: Pin Mates. For those looking to build a massive collection that's light on price and small on size, Pin Mates bring pop culture licenses into the realm of tiny wooden figures that recall the old Fisher-Price Little People of the 60s and 70s. With prices starting at just $4.99 a figure, they're really affordable, and one of the coolest recent assortments ties into a film that's just hitting the in-home market - Marvel Studios Thor: Ragnarok. Now available on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital HD, DVD and Moves Anywhere, fans can bring home the galactic adventure of Thor and Hulk as we charge toward the coming Avengers: Infinity War. But how about something to play with, too? The crew at Entertainment Earth recently sent me a box of Pin Mates for review, and inside were some extras that I'm going to pass onto one of you! One lucky friend of The Rock Father™ will receive a pack of five (5) Thor: Ragnarok Pin Mates! Ready to Ragnarok?

This week, the Nintendo Switch celebrated its first birthday. Our family has been in on the action since day one - and I was actually into it a bit early thanks to attending some pre-launch events. The system is just getting started, and while we await the launch of some cool new initiatives like Nintendo Labo (which I've played for an hour and a half - more on that soon!), my friends at GameStop have come up with a fun new way to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe... if only for a round. Our family took the #NintendoSwitchChallenge and the video proof is below! Now GameStop wants to see how you fare. If you take the challenge, you could win some sweet prizes on social media... but we're also giving readers of The Rock Father Magazine a chance to win a Nintendo Switch Accessory prize pack that's filled with fun hear from PDP Gaming. You could say that it's the Switch's birthday, but you get the presents!

It's Tax Season, and depending on where you fall in life, that can mean a feeling of excitement or a feeling of dread. For those who will be receiving a refund this year, I always say "don't blow it!" - but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a little fun with some of it. If gaming is your thing, my friends at GameStop want to help you stretch your refund... you could even say "reFUN" your refund as your cash respawns. They've got some of the hottest gaming gear at some great prices, and it kicked-off with the one-day PRO Day (which you've already missed - queue the Pac-Man defeat noise!). But now through March 10, you can multiply those hard-earned dollars with unbeatable savings and trade-in offers on a variety of games, consoles, accessories, toys and apparel! To celebrate the season of savings, The Rock Father™ and GameStop are teaming-up to sweeten the deal by giving YOU a chance to WIN a Tax Season Gaming Prize Pack featuring collectibles from Funko & PDP plus accessories for the Nintendo Switch! First, let's take a quick look at some new games to be excited about in March...

At the 115th North American International Toy Fair in New York City, one of the most buzzed-about toys was front-and-center at the JAKKS Pacific booth. In fact, you couldn't walk by without seeing someone making an attempt to ride the MorfBoard, the innovative all-in-one board system that lets riders skate, scoot, bounce and balance. I know that my own kids are gonna be all over this, and to celebrate the wide launch of this awesome new toy, The Toy Insider and JAKKS Pacific have teamed-up for a Twitter Party in which YOU could win a MorfBoard to share with your own family. The Rock Father™ will be there alongside other members of The Toy Insider Parent Advisory Board as we all talk spring toys and about all the action sports goodness that the MorfBoard will be bringing home! You MUST RSVP to be eligible to win at the party, which takes place Friday, March 9 from 11am-12pm EST. Want a taste of what the MorfBoard experience is like? Take a look...
