I have to admit, though I have a copy of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON here at Rock Father HQ, the munchkins and I have not yet watched the spin-off series, DRAGONS: RIDERS OF BERK on Cartoon Network. In fact, other than knowing that T.J. Miller does a voice on there, I don't really know a ton about it. That said, I know a lot of you (or your kids) dig the show, and as such, the folks from DreamWorks sent over a handy guide on "How to care for your Dragon," along with an interactive quiz to promote the recent DVD release of the first four episodes of the show (available now from Walmart). Are you into DRAGONS? Scroll down...

I've been known to purchase a shirt from Teefury on occasion. They do limited edition $10 tees that are only available for 24 Hours each - then they're gone forever. Known for their pop-culture mashups (I have one that blends THE DUKES OF HAZZARD with BACK TO THE FUTURE), they've posted a shirt today that caught my eye as I do a little surfing while the munchkin is at her "2's and 3's" pre-preschool this morning. If you like GHOSTBUSTERS and STAR WARS, this one's for you...

FOX International's BabyTV has been releasing Apps for the iPhone and iPad for awhile now, and as of this week, they've added a new one to their growing library. LEARNING GAMES FOR KIDS focuses on "early learning concepts including color recognition, numeracy, matching & sorting as well as encouraging language development" for kids 2-5. It's available exclusively from the Apple App Store (click here for iPhone, or here for iPad) for the next 45 days, after which it will become available on Google Play as well.

The folks over at PBS Kids have just announced their annual PBS KIDS GO! Writing Contest for kids in grades K-3. This creative writing adventure encourages children from around the country to embrace the power of storytelling utlizing their own words and illustrations. Fun fact? As a fifth grader, The Rock Father once took part in a similar contest - becoming the winning writer to represent his school at the Illinois Young Author's Conference at Illinois State University. Yes, I just spoke of myself in the third-person. Check out the full details on the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest below, and then get your little ones writing!

No matter what you believe, I think it's safe to say that this is another story where the public will never know the whole truth. Earlier today, Kevin Clash, the man who has been the voice and performer behind Elmo on SESAME STREET for over two decades, officially resigned. This comes following a tumultuous month that began with allegations of an inappropriate relationship with an underage boy - allegations later retracted, and now being disputed once more. Now a second person has stepped forward with accusations, and both Sesame Workshop and Kevin Clash have issued new statements.

My daughters love PAJANIMALS. In fact, they're a part of Addie's nightly bedtime ritual, as we wind down by watching an episode, then follow it with their "La-La-Lullaby" song that we have on the DVR courtesy of Sprout. Now, the Jim Henson Company has announced that the cuddly characters are packing their bags and hitting the road for PAJANIMALS LIVE: PAJAMA PLAYDATE - a new, live musical production set to visit 50 cities in 2013. One of the dates happens to be just 15 minutes from Rock Father HQ, so it looks like we'll be checking this out! Full tour dates and details below...

I've been debating all morning as to whether to discuss this here on The Rock Father or not, but since Sesame Workshop has issued a formal statement, I can't really avoid it. If you haven't heard, Kevin Clash, the Emmy-winning puppeteer and voice behind Elmo, has taken a leave of absence from SESAME STREET in the wake of allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with an underage boy.

Hulu Kids Launches with 43 popular children's shows...

Written by

I literally just cancelled my subscription to NETFLIX Streaming last week. Sure, it was only $7.99 a month, but I've been trying to cut costs around here (since everything else seems to be rising in price) and all of these little expenses add up quickly. Honestly, we just weren't watching it enough to justify it, despite a solid collection of kids' programming. Now comes news that Hulu has launched HULU KIDS, a new, commercial-free service available to their Hulu Plus members. Coincidentally, Hulu Plus also runs $7.99 a month.

The folks over at The Hub got in touch with a reminder that this Saturday marks the return of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, and the debut of LITTLEST PET SHOP. My Little Pony kicks off the action at 10am ET/7am PT with it's Season Three Premiere, while Littlest Pet Shop airs it's first episode at 11am ET/8am PT. Kids can host their own "Playdate Premiere Party" with a bunch of party pack printables available at this location

THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! has been a staple of PBS KIDS' programming since 2010, and this month, the famous Cat from the world of Dr. Seuss is getting festive with the release of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! Just-released on DVD by NCircle Entertainment, PBS KIDS hit The Rock Father with details on it's television premiere and multi-platform fun. 

There's a 26-hour TRANSFORMERS PRIME takeover happening right now on The Hub, where every episode of Seasons 1 and 2 are running in order, capping off tomorrow night with the Season Finale. In the midst of the action, Decepticon leader Megatron has revealed a surprising fact about himself: He loves the music of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. Seriously, check it out...
