When it comes to baby dolls, a long-running tradition has been the ones that do things that some like to avoid... ones that go pee-pee, or even poo. Last year, Lalaloopsy got into the game with their "controversial" (in some small, small circles) Diaper Surprise Doll, and this year they've sort of perfected the process with the release of their all-new Potty Surprise Doll. As one of the Lalaloopsy SIP (Sew Important Person) Ambassadors, I tend to receive some cool packages from time to time - shipments for The Rock Daughters™ to go hands-on with here in our state-of-the-art Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ. The Lalaloopsy Potty Surprise Doll was in our latest shipment, and not only did we go hands-on - but we're giving YOU a chance to win one. Check this out...
I'm not a huge jewelry guy, but I've become an expert jewelry maker in recent weeks. Well, not actual jewelry with precious metals and fine stones, but the kind made of colorful beads and sparkly adornments. As one of the Lalaloopsy SIP (Sew Important Person) Ambassadors, I tend to receive some cool packages from time to time - shipments for The Rock Daughters™ to go hands-on with here in our state-of-the-art Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ. One of the toys in our latest batch was a 2-in-1 - the Lalaloopsy Tinies Jewelry Maker. On one hand, it helps make some pretty cool beaded jewelry... while on the other, it's a functional Ferris Wheel-style playset for all of your Lalaloopsy Tinies. Would YOU like to win one? Well, here's your chance in my second Lalaloopsy Giveaway for the week!
As one of the Lalaloopsy SIP (Sew Important Person) Ambassadors, I tend to receive some cool packages from time to time - shipments for The Rock Daughters™ to go hands-on with here in our state-of-the-art Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ. This month, the theme was a celebration of Lalaloopsy's birthday, and with the Super Silly Party in full-effect, we did a new UNBOXED + Play video, and we're getting ready to giveaway some additional toys - new Lalaloopsy goodies that YOU just might win! First-up, it's the Lalaloopsy Minis Super Silly Party Musical Cake Playset - by far the biggest hit out of all the new offerings.
There comes a certain point with nearly every pop culture brand where eventually, the characters must form a band. I'm not sure why that is, but it's the rules, so we have to live with it. Being "The Rock Father," I can't claim to mind because I don't! In fact, I fully support anyone picking up an instrument and broadening their musical horizons - even if they're a cartoon or a doll! Did you know that the TRANSFORMERS were once a "Hair Metal" band? Well, it happened, so when word came down that Lalaloopsy was getting into the guitar-slinging action, I was in... but so were THE ROCK DAUGHTERS™.
When it comes to learning, sometimes kids need a reminder that learning new things is fun - something that I’m told happens more often with older kids - ones that sit in that “tween age.” While my girls (The Rock Daughters™) are still much younger, we’re really working to embrace that sense of wonder, exploration and curiosity that both have. For Addie, our oldest, there’s been a growing tendency to conduct “experiments” on her own, and she generally pulls little Finn into the mix. Things can get messy, but that’s just fine as the girls develop their own first-hand methods of witnessing action and reaction… even if that means I might spout off like David Seville with a frustrated “Addddddie!” once in awhile (that’s my problem, not the kids’). With a lot of what they’re doing, the girls are engaging in a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) realm without even knowing it. Embracing those interests at a young age (or refreshing them at an older one) is why it’s cool to see a program like PROJECT Mc2 hitting the scene.
The world of Lalaloopsy just keeps getting bigger, and this month my friends at MGA Entertainment are making things even sweeter with the launch of LALALOOPSY KITCHEN, an all-new original series. With new episodes premiering on YouTube every other Wednesday, kids can learn how to make some real food using the Lalaloopsy Baking Oven. What? You don't have an oven yet? Well, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine (a Lalaloopsy SIP - "Sew Important Person" - Brand Ambassador) is gonna get one lucky reader set-up with an Lalaloopsy Baking Oven, but act fast - entries will only be open for one week!
