I'm prepping some cool content for the Gardening Blog here on The Rock Father (if the weather would actually stay warm for more than a day), and while I'm still getting things together, the folks at PBS Digital Studios have a new installment of the It's Okay To Be Smart series that fits in well with the gardening theme. It's no secret that bees are a swarm of garden helpers, but have you ever wondered how they know what to do... or which flowers to approach? Well, there's something electrical involved, and somehow Dr. Joe Hanson manages to bring HE-MAN into the mix. I'm not joking... MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE in a science video to share with your kids. Seriously, just watch "Electric Buzzaloo" below:
With Spring finally here (hopefully to stay), we're gearing up for our 2013 Gardening Season here at Rock Father HQ. If you're a newer reader, you might've missed the garden adventures from the past two years, so let me put this simply: Gardening Rocks! There's nothing better than teaching the little ones how to grow their own food and pretty plants, and it's something I'm big on here at home. Returning from 2012, GROWUMS are a line of educational growing kits that feature characters like Ice Berg the Lettuce Rapper, Frank Cilantro and Elvis Parsley to help teach kids the ways of the gardening Force. For 2013, they could use a little bit of a boost.
My friends over at Step2 (The Rock Father is a 2013 Step2 Test Drive Blogger) have launched a "Virtual Easter Egg Hunt" on their website, where through Tuesday - anyone that finds a "Golden Egg" on a product page will save 10% off that item. Hit the Step2 site to get shopping, and don't forget that there's still time for you to get a chance to score a new, 2013 Step2 Easy Turn Coupe from The Rock Father - and you can help Saving tiny Hearts Society in the process!

I'm a couple of days late in posting this, but the folks over at the official LEGO Shop sent over their list of new items and specials for March, and there's no denying that they're tantalizing for LEGO fans. The possibility of scoring an Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate is fantastic, but it's their new Exclusive Palace Cinema set that really grabed me.
The folks over at Ty's Toy Box have just hit The Rock Father with the rundown on what's hot for March. Check out the details below on the "Ty's Top Five" as determined by customer popularity. Additionally, you can save 15% Off Sitewide over at Ty's Toy Box (through March 4) with coupon code TTB1531. As many of you already know, we're big fans of the assortment offered by Ty's Toy Box, as they handle a lot of the hard-to-find brands from PBS Kids and Sprout, like CAILLOU, DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD, SUPER WHY!, and more.
