The American International Toy Fair will begin this weekend in New York, and while The Rock Father won't be there in-person (maybe next year), the news continues rolling in here at Rock Father HQ. HASBRO will be rolling out a ton of new toys this weekend, and this morning I've got a preview of new offerings for kids of all-ages. With iconic brands like TRANSFORMERS, MY LITTLE PONY, STAR WARS, G.I. JOE, PLAY-DOH, FURBY, BABY ALIVE, TWISTER, and ANGRY BIRDS represented, there's a little something for everyone. Check out some highlights below.

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

I still have my original copy of ANDREW W.K.'s landmark album, I GET WET, so it's hard to believe that it's been a decade since it was first released. To think of how much has happened in that time is astounding, but alas, time has flown. On August 28, Century Media will release the 10th Anniversary Edition of that album on Deluxe CD and Double-Gatefold Vinyl, and today I've got the tracklisting and package art to share with you here on The Rock Father...

Fans of Hasbro's popular MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC (currently airing on The Hub) will have something new to enjoy come this november. At the in-progress Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, IDW Publishing and Hasbro announced that they'd be bringing the popular series into comic book form. IDW’s MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC comics will offer all-new stories featuring the beloved ponies: TWILIGHT SPARKLE, PINKIE PIE, RARITY, FLUTTERSHY, RAINBOW DASH, and APPLEJACK.

The Hub's MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC has a hardcore male fanbase, that much is certain. My daughter loves it, but I still just can't get into it. I watch it with her, but me? I'm digging that new CARE BEARS series more than the Ponies, but I'm not gonna get all hardcore about it. You know who is hardcore though? ANDREW W.K. In fact, he's so into the Ponies that he's doing a motivational speech at CANTERLOT GARDENS, a full-blown MY LITTLE PONY convention. Check out the press release that just landed here at Rock Father HQ today...
