Written by

Well, this is disappointing. The previously-announced 50-City PAJANIMALS LIVE! PAJAMA PLAYDATE Tour (which I covered here on The Rock Father back in November) has been canceled. CID Entertainment (producers of the tour) have issued the following statement...

MADLY MADAGASCAR (DVD Review)

Written by

With Valentine's Day officially upon us, it's prime time to throw down a little more virtual ink devoted to MADLY MADAGASCAR one last time. After previewing the special and doing a giveaway here on The Rock Father in previous weeks, it felt fitting to hold off on my official review until now.

The DVR is already set here at Rock Father HQ, as my oldest will no doubt be excited for the Season Finale of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC on The Hub. The action takes place this Saturday, with a special morning marathon capped-off by the Princess Coronation Episode in which Twilight Sparkle will be transformed. The folks from The Hub sent over full details, along with a video preview and a little info on a brand-new episode of LITTLEST PET SHOP which will follow MLP. Check 'em out below!

Straight out of the American International Toy Fair in New York City comes news that MGA Entertainment, Inc. and Nickelodeon have partnered to launch 52 episodes of the animated preschool series LALALOOPSY.  Set to debut this Spring on Nickelodeon, this new series is based on the popular Lalaloopsy line of toys. 

I haven't smelled one in years, but I can still "smell" the original STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE dolls from the 1980s. They smelled great, and the new ones don't quite match it. That fact aside, we've been known the watch some STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE on The Hub, and now comes news that Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY FRIENDS FOREVER (pre-order here) on DVD March 5. Details below...

Shop Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Personalized Apparel  and More at TysToyBox.comUpon it's first airing last summer, DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD became an instant hit here at Rock Father HQ. Building upon the land of make-believe established in MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD, it's been fantastic to watch my oldest daughter become enthralled in the educational, and very musical adventures of Daniel Tiger. One thing missing from the experience has been some merchandising, and now that drought has come to an end. Thanks to the folks over at Ty's Toy Box, the official Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Store has opened for business. Even better? The Rock Father has coupons!

A Valentine's Day E-Card from MADLY MADAGASCAR...

Written by

madly 125The love-themed MADLY MADAGASCAR is now available on DVD (order yours here) and my munchkins have already been enjoying it here at Rock Father HQ. Since Valentine's Day is just two weeks away, the folks at Dreamworks Animation/20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have sent over a little e-card that you can forward to some friends.

Check out the e-card along with the trailer and synopsis for the new animated special below...

Between Ariel from THE LITTLE MERMAID and those Barbie A MERMAID TALE movies, I have my fair share of Mermaid action taking place here at Rock Father HQ. Personally, I'm more of a SPLASH fan myself, but I'm old-school. These young kids, though? They're all about the Mermaids. Despite having a reported 250 million viewers worldwide, I'd never heard of H20: JUST ADD WATER - an Australian series that runs on Teen Nick here in the U.S. - until tonight. The first three seasons are hitting DVD this March individually (a full-series box set was released last November), prior to the launch of a 26-episode spin-off series called SECRET OF MAKO ISLAND. Details below...

This February, PBS KIDS will premiere a new one-hour special from DINOSAUR TRAIN. The hit show from The Jim Henson Company returns with "Submarine Adventures" making it's television debut on February 18 (check your local listings) followed by a DVD release (pre-order here) the following day. This new special features four adventures focusing on sea creatures that lived during the "age of the dinosaurs." The Rock Father has all the details below...

The internet is a bad place. After speculation, rumor, and even flat-out denial by Abrams himself, it's been officially revealed after news leaked earlier this week... J.J. ABRAMS WILL DIRECT STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Walt Disney Studios sent out the official press release a short time ago, complete with quotes from all the involved players. Interestingly enough, the day the Abrams news flared up again this week, I had both of my girls decked out in STAR WARS t-shirts, a picture of which I shared on The Rock Father social nets. Details on this new ripple in The Force below...

LEGO Brand RetailLEGO and STAR WARS have been a match of legendary proportions. A "peanut butter and chocolate" marriage of pop culture icons, you could say. Now that my oldest daughter is into both LEGO and STAR WARS, she absolutely loved when Cartoon Network premiered LEGO STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES OUT last year. We actually still have it on our DVD all these months later, but this spring we can let it go as Lucasfilm, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and LEGO have announced a DVD release for March 26... complete with an exclusive DARTH VADER Minifigure!

With the kids off school in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it's the perfect time for some educational programming from PBS Kids. Premiering today (check local listings for times) is the WILD KRATTS "Lost At Sea" Science Special. An advance screener arrived here at Rock Father HQ, and after watching it with Addie twice last week, I can assure you that this under sea adventure is one you won't want to miss! Check out the trailer and episode details below...
