Over the past few years, drones have continued to dominate kids' holiday wish lists - not just children, mind you, but big kids (grownups) as well. One downside to the drone craze is that they tend to be pretty fragile, and breakage upon crash landing is a concern. But what if the drone was actually made to be crashed, with rebuilding intended to be part of the fun? That's where FlyBlocks comes into play, and to celebrate the launch of The Rock Father™ Magazine's annual Holiday Wish Guide™, we've teamed-up to give readers a shot at winning FlyBlocks' new 4-in-1 Build N' Fly Drone Kit! A perfect holiday gift, these retail for just $59.95, but you could win one, so check this out...
This Special Feature is Sponsored by Best Buy in Collaboration with The Rock Father™
The 2017 Holiday Gifting Season is upon us, and this year my friends at Best Buy have unwrapped their biggest and best family-centric Gift Guide ever! MORE TECH. MORE TOYS. That's the mantra this year as Best Buy brings the Top Toys of 2017 into their stores (and online) to give families a wide selection that ranges from classics to state-of-the-art. The Best Buy Toy Gift Guide recently arrived in the mail here at Rock Father™ HQ, and with that I'm showcasing a few items hand-picked by yours truly (with help from The Rock Daughters™)
I've been keeping track of the latest in holiday music and movies for years - each year delivering an ultimate guide to what's hot in all-new releases and reissues. On the music front, the last couple of years have been light, but for 2017 there's a ton of new holiday music to enjoy, and as part of the ongoing rollout of The Rock Father™ Magazine's annual Holiday Wish Guide™ comes the 2017 Holiday Music & Movies Ultimate Guide!
When The Emoji Movie arrived in theaters this past summer, most mainstream critics weren't exactly kind to it. In fact, there was already some negative buzz swirling around it since it was first announced - and even I questioned just how, exactly, Sony Pictures was planning to execute a feature film based on the characters than live within our phones. Thing is, that's exactly what they did - with filmmaker Tony Leondis crafting a tale of a world that literally exists inside of our devices, connecting everyone. Emojis have been everywhere these past few years, and The Emoji Movie gives them purpose, because even those who openly detest the creatures who evolved from emoticons, now harbor them within their purses or pockets every single day. Thing is, this isn't a movie for grownups, but very much a tale for tech-obsessed kids, which is always something of a double-edged sword here in our house.
This Special Feature brought to you by GameStop and Funko

When it comes to the breakout toys of 2017, Fidget Spinners are serious business. What started as one thing expanded into an entire category of Fidgets - divisive as to whether they're toys, tools or just a fad that will eventually go the way of the Pog. For now, they're still hot, and the folks at Zuru Toys have some of the highest-quality offerings out there, and they recently sent us some for review. Bringing iconic superheroes into the mix, they've licensed characters from DC Comics and Marvel, bringing them together for a colorful collection of Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes - the original Fidget Cubes as developed by Antsy Labs!
