After a five-year run, Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came to a close at the end of 2017, but as that chapter finished, fans knew that there was an all-new series coming down the pipeline. At Toy Fair in NYC last month, I got a first-look at all the new toys on the way from Playmates, presented by a few of the folks involved with the new series. Now, the first trailer for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is here, and fans are getting their first real look at this 2D re-imagining. It's a whole new look for the Turtles and their world, as their origin has a new spin. Check it out...

At Toy Fair in New York last month, the Spin Master booth was a center of constant activity. While their offerings are diverse, their television brands are a big deal, and we're now entering into the second year for Rusty Rivets, which airs daily on Nick Jr. Last year, the much-anticipated toy line first hit the scene as a Toys "R" Us Exclusive, but this year it's a wide-release meaning that parents should be able to find these just about anywhere. While I was personally hoping to see a Mobile Rivet Lab Playset on display (it might've been too new), that didn't happen but a lot of other great items have materialized. The Rock Father™ is excited to present to you a full look at the 2018 Rusty Rivets toy line, complete with suggested pricing and availability dates below. Get ready to Combine It and Design It!

Nickelodeon's new hit preschool series Top Wing is getting a toy line. The product line, which includes figures, vehicles and plush inspired by the show’s four best friend rescue birds, will launch in the U.S. this fall, followed by international markets in Spring 2019. These new toys will arrive courtesy of Hasbro, and will be released under the iconic PLAYSKOOL banner. News arrived today ahead of Toy Fair in New York...

I've mentioned this before (just ask my friends at The Toy Insider), but I need to make something very clear: I cannot find one thing that I like about SpongeBob SquarePants. Not a single thing. In fact, I'd call him my nemesis, but since I have a few, let's just say that SpongeBob is one of my  nemeses. Perhaps it's because his whole existence is a "Millennial" thing (his show debuted in 1999 - the year I got married), or maybe I'm still bent out of shape that I actually rented 2004's The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, only to be disappointed to find out that the legendary David Hasselhoff was given just a small (yet still heroic!) role in said film. Even when we took The Rock Daughters™ to visit Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America, I had to play nice as the girls just loved meeting Mr. Squarepants. That said, next year is the 20th Anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, and the cool folks at The Alpha Group (Super Wings, Screechers Wild!) are picking up the torch as master toy licensee for SpongeBob. The brand-new product line, which will include toys, collectibles, plush and novelties, is expected to debut worldwide in 2019.

It seems like everything in entertainment is divisive these days. If you keep things the same, it's too much like what's come before it. Change things up and go in new directions, and you've ruined a franchise. At least, that's what certain very vocal fans tend to say. The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES franchise to me is a lot like BATMAN (who they've actually teamed-up with before). Since 1984, it's seen constant reinvention with different looks and new takes on familiar characters that sometimes inhabit an unfamiliar form. Most of the time, it works. Now, after running nearly six years in a CGI incarnation on Nickelodeon (which ran parallel to a vastly different-looking live action film series), the TMNT crew is being reinvented once more for RISE OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.

Nickelodeon will introduce kids to the wild and amazing world of animals with the brand-new clip-based series Zoofari, premiering Monday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. (ET/PT).  Made up of hilarious live-action footage, Zoofari (20 half-hour episodes) showcases the most adorable and incredible animals from around the world--from furry to feathered, scaly and more.  Created and produced by Cisneros Media’s MOBIUS.LAB Productions, a new episode of Zoofari will premiere every weekday through Friday, Feb. 16, at 2 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.  The series will also begin airing internationally later this year.
