This Fall, the "Mane 6" from Hasbro's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television series returned to the digital realm in Backflip Studios' new high-definition match-3 puzzle game, MY LITTLE PONY: PUZZLE PARTY. Available for both iOS and Android, the game features hundreds of pony puzzle adventures and the real voices of the "Mane 6." In the game, players join Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Pinkie Pie as they use their unique “pony power-ups” to master magical levels throughout Equestria. To celebrate the game and the holiday season, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and Hasbro have teamed-up for a Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway in which three readers will receive some fantastic MY LITTLE PONY: PUZZLE PARTY Prize Packs!

2017 is going to be a massive year at the movies, and on June 23rd it's the Autobots vs. Decepticons once more as Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters. The fifth film in the live-action franchise based on the iconic Hasbro toys finds filmmaker Michael Bay back at the helm with a cast that includes Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, Isabella Moner, Stanley Tucci and John Turturro. As a huge fan of the Transformers overall, this one is one of my most-anticipated films for the coming year, and tonight Paramount Pictures unleashed the first teaser trailer. Check it out...

With so many new toys vying for the attention of kids and parents each and every year, it's always interesting to take note of some true classics that have been able to stand the test of time.  100 years ago, John Lloyd Wright (son of noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright) created what would eventually be known as Lincoln Logs - a toy that I had as a child, and one that The Rock Daughters™ play with now. In fact, I still have my Lincoln Logs from the 70s, and that was the door-opener for what I'd call "The Original STEM Toy." Officially, K'NEX (current maker of Lincoln Logs) calls them "America's National Toy," and that's cool, too - especially since they're once again MADE IN THE USA, and for 2016 they've secured a spot in my annual Holiday Wish Guide™ here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine...

Despite my love of the TRANSFORMERS, there are some characters who are so obscure that their existence within the Transformers lore has escaped me. From the Generation 1-era comes Liokaiser - a Combiner who first appeared in the Japanese cartoon series, but eventually made its way into later iterations of the franchise. What this robot didn't have until now is a proper, U.S.-release as a toy, but Hasbro has taken care of that with this month's official release of the Transformers Generations Platinum Edition Combiner Wars Liokaiser - an Entertainment Earth Exclusive, and a featured pick in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine. This beautiful Boxed Set includes 6 evil Decepticons who merge into the mighty Liokaiser in order to throw down against the Autobots! My allies at EE sent an early sample to Rock Father HQ for review, and I'm giving you one of the first official in-hand looks at this great set...

If you look at all the "Hot Toy Lists" that are popping up for 2016 (including my own Holiday Wish Guide), you're no doubt seeing that there's a few items that are across-the-board hits with a lot of play experts. The right toys can help make the holidays magical, and among the companies that know a lot about holiday magic is Hasbro. The folks behind icons like Transformers, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe and Glo-Worm have been making magic for years, and to power that magic, the team at Duracell is always ready, supplying batteries like the ones included with the FurReal Friends Bootsie. One of the hottest toys of 2016 is no doubt the FurReal Friends Torch, My Blazin' Dragon, and the place you can get him (along with the batteries) is Toys "R" Us! Check out Torch & Bootsie in-action in the video below...
