Presented in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and Mattel
There’s several trends in toys for 2018, and Mattel has managed to tick the boxes on many of them with one new line - Pooparoos Surpriseroos, available only at Walmart. Coming out of Toy Fair back in February, the world knew that bathroom fun would be a big deal, and here we see that combined with squishy collectibles, micro-collectibles and the ever-popular element of both blind boxes and blind bags. Kids will love the unboxing experience that these provide, with each adorable toilet playset including one squishy Pooparoos character paired with three blind Surpriseroos. Check out our hands-on video to see five-year-old Finley (youngest of The Rock Daughters™) cracking some open!

Are you ready for adventure? This summer, Captain Underpants took a flying leap from the printed page of the best-selling book series, landing on cinema screens to the delight of families everywhere. Now, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is coming home on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD September 12, and now is the perfect time to pre-order the movie from Walmart and make plans for an epic early fall movie night. I've got a few tips to help you make the most of it, with snacks from Pop Secret and Lance, along with some free printables that the kids will love!
Over the years, one thing that I've become known for in certain circles is facial hair. There's a spot on my chin that just never seems to be shaved, and if asked to describe it, I'd generally note that it's an 8½-inch goatee. Many people have called it a "beard," and that's valid as well - but it is something that's taken on a life of it's own. Personally, I think it should be longer - and at times, I've asked my wife if she secretly trims its length while I'm sleeping. As most who've seen it up close can attest to, its length and girth is decent (perhaps even impressive to some), but it's been fairly unruly, and that's completely my fault. Truth be told, I let my beard sorta do its own thing for awhile, and until I started using The Perfecter: Beard Boss Stubble and Detail Kit by Remington (available at Walmart & Walmart.com), I hadn't properly groomed my goat for a few years. Much like the well-manicured and shaped hedges that adorn the landscape here at Rock Father HQ, it was time to show similar attention to the shrubbery that adorns my face. I had to show my beard who's boss, and in the process I've grown fond of a tool that I'd now call "essential."
UPDATED WITH PACKAGING and UPC! There's been some rumors floating for a bit that as part of the Star Wars 40th Anniversary celebration, Funko would be releasing some Pop! Vinyl bobbleheads that feature Star Wars characters done in a color scheme to match their original Kenner action figures from the 1970s and 80s. Concept art has been trading the back channels leading some to speculate on its authenticity, but tonight comes confirmation of at least three characters that rank among my childhood favorites: Hammerhead, Greedo and Walrus Man.
Ever since I purchased my first car as a teen, I've loved spending time keeping my cars looking great. From the beginning, Armor All has been a fixture in that mission, and over the years I've been thrilled not only to receive an Armor All Car Care Gift Pack - but to gift them as well. It's a quick-and-easy gift that's great to give and receive - all the gear one needs to make it through another season. As a parent, it's also been awesome to see our girls get into it as well, always eager to help mommy and daddy keep the big cars clean, but also to wash their kid-rides as well. Since it's like -10° here at Rock Father HQ right now, let's think about warmer times...
When it comes to the Holidays, there's certain gifts that just evoke that feeling of a classic Christmas. A kid coming downstairs to find a shiny new bike under the tree is one of those things, but as both Santa and parents know, kids grow (and outgrow) quickly, and families want to be sure that their children have a quality bike at a price that doesn't break the bank. The folks at Kent International have a full range of bikes for the whole family, but for my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide I'm focusing on the 2+, 5+ and 8+ range, including their 18" Sparkle Freestyle BMX Bike... the same one that our youngest daughter has been rockin' the sidewalk on, sent to us this Fall for review.
