In the short period of time since I finally decided to allow my girls to get some hand-held screentime, we've gone from having no tablet to having at least three (there might be more). The iPad Mini is largely THE ROCK FATHER's tablet, and that means that it's pretty much set-up for me, but over the past couple of months, I've really started to kid-ifiy it a bit, loading up the best Apps that can both teach and entertain. One of the best new releases comes from Disney, a name that families like ours are immersed in on a daily basis, and with Disney Imagicademy there's a whole new world of learning opening up for kids ages 3-8, and a parental component that can enrich the entire program through an interconnected experience.

Today marks a glorious occasion for players of Disney Infinity 2.0 as Mickey Mouse comes to the game in a new form based on his appearance in FANTASIA's Sorcerer's Apprentice sequence. The Crystal Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey is available now as what you could call an "upgraded" version of his Infinity 1.0 persona. Take a peek at the figure and screenshots below...

If you have a little "Mousekedoer" at home, then they probably need some cool Mousketools to help get the job done... whatever that may be. For some cute DIY-action infused with the colorful vibe of Disney Junior's MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE comes a new line of tools and accessories from Just Play Toys that make great, and surprisingly affordable gifts.* We received the Handy Helper Tool Box, Handy Helper Workbench and Mousekedoer Deluxe Tool Set, all of which I'm including in my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide.

On May 20th, Disney Junior will release another installment of their popular MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE DVDs when AROUND THE CLUBHOUSE WORLD (Pre-Order) hits stores. This Globe-trotting new collection features the feature-length presentation, along with four additional episodes that find Mickey and the Gang hitting Europe and beyond. Full details below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER.
