Folks that visit The Rock Father regularly know that there's quite a bit of content that could be considered "fandom" oriented. There's a lot of crossover between things that I dig and things that my children dig... and I know that applies to a lot of you as well. As parents, we infuse our little ones with a lot of what we're into, but at the same time, they influence us. One company that's on the pulse of that is OffWord Designs, a local outfit here in Chicagoland that manufacturers killer t-shirts for the whole family (kids and grownups). If you've visited a comic or gaming convention recently (C2E2, Dragon Con, Gen Con, even SDCC) you might've run into them. With their new website launched this week, OffWorld Designs and The Rock Father are giving a couple of lucky readers a chance at some new threads. Let's look at some of what they do...

I know a lot of you that read The Rock Father are fans of MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC. Even if you're not a fan yourself (Perhaps you're a Brony? Maybe you're a Pegasister?), there's a strong likelihood that your kids are (like mine), so the world of Equestria is still a part of your life. Knowing that a lot of Rock Father friends are into MLP, the folks over at Mimoco sent over a brand-new Rainbow Dash MIMOBOT - an 8GB USB Flash Drive customized as the colorful pony, complete with her prism-spectrum mane, lightning-cloud cutie mark, and undeniable charisma. If you're lucky, Rainbow Dash will soon make a journey from Rock Father HQ to your house.

Since I didn't go to the recent American International Toy Fair in-person, I've digitally received a lot of official info on some great toys for 2013 that I'm still sorting through as time allows. One line I've been wanting to preview for you is the upcoming offerings from Hasbro's MY LITTLE PONY collection. Based on The Hub's hit series, MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC, there's a lot of new toys on the way in addition to the Toys "R" Us Exclusives that I previously posted here on The Rock Father.

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!
