Written by

2018 isn't that far off, and with that D23: The Official Disney Fan Club has announced a full year's worth of new events for fans around the country to enjoy. The 2018 slate of events includes a special birthday celebration for Mickey Mouse, advance movie screenings, exclusive tours, Broadway shows, and a return to Walt’s hometown of Marceline. Check out the full details below!

'Tis the season to be spooky, and in the spirit of all things creepy, The Rock Father™ and Entertainment Earth are giving readers a chance to win a new Funko Dorbz Pennywise figure from Stephen King's IT! As part of 31 Days of Halloween 2017, you could own this 3" version of Tim Curry's iconic clown in a form that's probably too cute to be in good taste. In fact, one might even call it adorable!

The Rock Father™ and Scholastic have teamed-up to celebrate the launch of an all-new book series for young readers - HILDE CRACKS THE CASE. The first book, Hero Dog! (Hilde Cracks the Case #1) just hit bookstores, introducing readers to the adventures of real-life ten-year-old crime reporter Hilde Lysiak. Each book in the series is inspired by news stories that Hilde wrote in real-life, and they're presented here particularly geared toward readers 5-8. As part of the launch, we're giving readers of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine a shot at winning a Hero Dog! Prize Pack featuring the new book plus a Vtech Kidizoom Smartwatch!

While Spin Master gears up for a potential repeat of their 2016 success with the debut of Hatchimals Surprise this October, the Canadian toymaker has another interactive toy that just might take the crown for 2017's Hottest Holiday Toy. Luvabella™ and Luvabeau™ are designed to be "the most interactive and lifelike baby dolls ever," packed "with so many real baby surprises to discover, kids will be continuously amazed." An official selection of THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine's 2017 Holiday Wish Guide™ (launching soon), we've been going hands-on with these dolls for a little while now, and today this official announcement has been revealed. I will say this: If you want to buy a Luvabella or Luvabeau for your child, don't pass them up when you see them in stores. I've seen the magic first-hand...

When I stopped by the local Meijer on Force Friday II earlier this month, I noticed some new STAR WARS-themed BIC Pens hanging alongside the Hasbro action figures in one spot. Turns out that they're part of a whole new BIC stationery product range featuring the famous characters from the STAR WARS Saga. Today comes news on the full assortment, which you can check out below...

This morning, MGA Entertainment (MGAE) announced that they're launching the world's first-ever unboxing video booth as they celebrate the official release of L.O.L. Surprise! Big Surprise on September 29 in Hollywood, CA. They've also announced that on the same date they will launch "Unboxed," which they tout as "a new digital content series that gives fans a behind the scenes look at its most popular brands." Coincidentally, UNBOXED is also the name of a digital content series here on THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine, one that's been running since 2015 (see 55 episodes of UNBOXED on YouTube), featuring toys from a variety of makers, including MGA Entertainment. We'll talk more about that in a minute.
