Toy Review: Crayola Color Wonder Magic Light Brush

Written by

The Toy InsiderWe've all been there - a smiling child looking up at you, basking in the pride that comes with a job well-done as they show off their latest masterpiece. Then you see how much of the paint has made it not onto the paper, but onto the table, the floor, the wall, their clothes... and perhaps the family pet. It's adorable, yet maddening, and in the past the reaction has been to just shake it off while heading for the Magic Eraser and whatever spray cleaner might be nearby. Crayola Color Wonder has been tackling some of that mess for a bit, particularly with their markers and travel kits, which we've used often. Now there's the Crayola Color Wonder Magic Light Brush & Drawing Pad - a painting set that refreshes an idea that painting doesn't have to be a huge mess. My colleagues at The Toy Insider sent us a set for review here at Rock Father HQ, and this is one of those things that I had to break into and try out before the girls even got a chance. 

It's been nearly three decades since CHILD'S PLAY gave audiences their first taste of Chucky, a killer doll that was once a "Good Guy." 29 years and seven movies in, CULT OF CHUCKY has arrived just in-time for Halloween, bringing a fresh dose of clever kills available on Blu-ray and streaming on Netflix. Now, The Rock Father™ and Entertainment Earth are getting in on the action by giving readers a chance to win a new Funko Dorbz Child's Play Chucky figure! As part of 31 Days of Halloween 2017, you could own this 3" version of Chucky that's so adorable, he might even become your buddy! Wanna play?

PBS KIDS have announced that this holiday season, they're expanding their partnership with Whole Foods Market through a new assortment of sustainable, educational wooden toys for children. Arriving just in-time for the gifting season, PBS KIDS EverEarth products (part of a licensing partnership between PBS KIDS and Maxim Enterprise, Inc) feature items for both indoor and outdoor play, encouraging families to explore and learn together. On top of that, PBS KIDS plush animals made by Aurora will arrive with eight new offerings. 100% of net proceeds from the sale of all PBS KIDS toys at Whole Foods Market will support PBS KIDS’ mission to help all children, especially those who need it most. Whole Foods Market will also donate one percent of total sales to Whole Kids Foundation®, an organization dedicated to improving wellness and nutrition across the country.

Mattel's WellieWishers (a spin-off from American Girl) have been a part of regular play here at Rock Father HQ since last year, when my friends at The Toy Insider sent the girls a couple of the dolls (Emerson and Camille) followed by Grandpa Dale giving The Rock Daughters some new outfits and the Garden Stage Playset. Like most toys these days, WellieWishers are getting some digital accompaniment, and this month brings the release of WellieWishers: Garden Fun, an all-new mobile game for iOS and Android. Check out the trailer for the game below...

DC Super Hero Girls is a line of been championing since it's announcement, and here at Rock Father HQ we're well-versed in the adventures of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Harley Quinn and their friends. Part of the fun is playing dress-up, and while we're big on that any day, the Halloween season throws the door wide open for some junior cosplay fun. This year, DC Comics is encouraging your #GetYourCapeOn and share your kids' DC Superhero Girls costumes (yes, Beast Boy and Flash are also welcome). Parents can upload their child's picture, then customize it with frames and add it to a special Halloween gallery. I actually shared one of The Rock Daughters™ from the spring of 2016 when the DC Super Hero Girls first launched...

Dolly Parton recently joined forces with PledgeMusic to launch a pre-order campaign in support of her first-ever children's album, I Believe In You.
