With a 3-year-old and a newborn in the house, Winnie the Pooh is everywhere. From books to movies to plush toys, it would seem that the oldest can't get enough of Pooh and his pals from the Hundred Acre Wood. In fact, I actually do a pretty solid version of Pooh Bear's voice, and find myself performing the character on a fairly regular basis. As for the movies, we have several on DVD and Blu-Ray, but October means it's time for WINNIE THE POOH'S HEFFALUMP HALLOWEEN MOVIE.
The wonderful slang of the 1980s... were the Halloween Costumes on-sale at your local TOYS 'R US store enough to make your Halloween ''super maximum?'' According to the following commercial, they certainly were. More concerning is why there's a large Gorilla that appears to kidnap a small child right in front of the mother, who apparently goes along with it. Well, she is a witch. Watch and learn.
Clint Perry & The Boo Hoo Crew have been pretty busy lately. Having just released their new album, SHAKE YOUR PIRATE BOOTY (review here) last month, you might think that they're done with new music for 2012. Not so, as they're celebrating the spooktacular season with a brand-new single called "It's Halloween." You can get it now on iTunes and other digital retailers, but first feel free to stream it in the player below!
I've had my eye on LEGO Monster Fighters for awhile now, despite currently being in Duplo mode here at Rock Father HQ. With a plotline seemingly inspired by THE MONSTER SQUAD (or more likely, the Universal Monsters that inspired it), there's few other toys on the market right now that fit Halloween as perfectly as these. That said, LEGO Monster Fighters are a fitting feature for Day 4 of The Rock Father's 31 Days of Halloween.
Children's Musician DAVID TOBOCMAN is getting into the Halloween Spirit with the release of his new song, "Spooky Stuff." Co-written by his 1st Grade daughter, Zoe (who also sings on the track), it's said to "calm the jitters when things go BUMP." "Spooky Stuff" is available now as a FREE DOWNLOAD in the SoundCloud player below...
