When my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide recently launched here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, one of the first things featured on the site were the fantastic toys, books and games based on what has thus-far been 2015's biggest movie. Now, JURASSIC WORLD has come home for the holidays on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, and the folks at Universal Studios Home Entertainment and I are giving readers a chance to win the film on Blu-ray Combo Pack - the ultimate stocking stuffer for Dino-enthusiasts...

Movies are the perfect stocking stuffer, and when it comes to movies for grownups, one of 2015's biggest is TRAINWRECK. Amy Schumer & Bill Hader star in this Judd Apatow comedy, and now the film is coming home for the holidays on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and Universal Studios Home Entertainment are giving readers a chance to win a copy on Blu-ray Combo Pack, and this would certainly make the perfect gift for yourself or someone you know!

We all know the big, iconic yellow TONKA trucks and vehicles - and while those might be the first thing to come to mind at the mention of TONKA, they also have something a bit smaller that makes for perfect stocking stuffers this holiday season. At roughly 1:55-scale, TONKA METAL Diecast vehicles are ready for adventure with series' that include First Responders, City Defenders, Construction Crew, and even Strike Force (Military). These free-wheeling specialty vehicles are built tough and a lot of fun for kids ages 3+, but they're also great for grownup collectors, too - a neat retro piece. Singles run less than $5, and there's multi-packs out there as well, on pegs at Walmart, Target, Toys "R" Us, Amazon and many other retailers Nationwide. They're a featured pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine.

rubic3The Rubik's Cube is an undeniable classic, and a puzzle that I've owned several of over the years. For the past few, I've had the Icon Edition here in my office (I'm not good with these, so it remains unsolved) and recently we received a couple of new additions that make great stocking stuffers. The Rubik's 2x2 and the Rubik's Key Ring are both miniature cubes that make the Rubik's experience even more portable, and the 2x2 is fantastic for kids and beginners.

Stocking Stuffer: SKWOOSHI

125skwooshiWhat is Skwooshi? That is the big question that was looming here at Rock Father HQ after Irwin Toy, the folks behind this new mystery substance, sent us their new "Car and Train Action Set" for review. On the surface, Skwooshi is some sort of modeling compound that "stretches, molds, and shapes into amazing detail with no mess and will never dry out." In other words, this is not like Play-Doh, nor is it like clay, Gak, or Floam. Or it is? It has properties of all of those, but it's definitely something unique... so much so that it's addictive, and something that I'm recommending as a stocking stuffer in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. Since explaining this is a bit difficult, I figured that Addie and I would show you a little Swooshi in-action. Watch the video below...

Sports Illustrated KidsThis week, it's "go" time for holiday shopping, and my friends at Sports Illustrated Kids have a perfect stocking stuffer that can keep on giving for a full year. Right now, they're offering a special deal in which you can subscribe to SI Kids in print and on tablet for just $19.95, then send another gift of 12 issues for only $5 bucks! With winter here (it's 19 degrees at Rock Father HQ as I type this), it can be hard to keep kids active, and SI Kids is a great way to sprinkle a little inspiration into the mix.
