There's a lot of activity in The Magic Kingdom (as if it every really slows down), and today I present to you another Disney Roundup here on The Rock Father. There's quick updates involving PLANES, JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES, FROZEN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, and more. 

125chevelleAs far as I can tell, the official announcement hasn't even been made yet, but information regarding a new collection of lullabies from Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star has hit the net via a product listing at Amazon (who I won't link to until they begin working with Illinois-based affiliates again). LULLABY VERSIONS OF CHEVELLE is set for a January 7, 2014 release date, bringing a dozen of the Chicago band's biggest hits and fan favorites into a new realm: nursery-friendly songs for baby. Check out the tracklisting below, right here on The Rock Father...

Chicago Toy & Game Fair 2013Chicago Toy and Game Fair Giveaway: Week 5 of 6!

Last year, one of the best events I had a chance to attend was the Chicago Toy & Game Fair (read my report here). For 2013, ChiTag is back for it's 11th Annual event, taking place November 23-24 at Navy Pier, right at the heart of Chicago's beautiful lakefront. It's the only public event of it's kind, allowing kids and grownups of all-ages to get a peek and play with some of the hottest upcoming toys and games, all while taking part in special events and shopping at the same time. The Rock Father and ChiTag have teamed-up to get six lucky families hooked-up with weekend passes to the show, one per week leading up to the big event. Want to join us at Navy Pier?

After being teased in trailers on recent Disney Blu-ray releases for a bit now, it's official - THE JUNGLE BOOK: DIAMOND EDITION will be swinging onto Blu-ray, DVD, and HD Digital on February 11, 2014. Check out the specs below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

I have seen the future. I have already been there, and I already have my favorite album of 2014 thus far. It's true... The Rock Father's Urban Assault Vehicle is also a time machine, equipped with a Flux Capacitor installed by Doctor Emmett Brown on a visit to Hill Valley, California last year. And, while all of you will have to wait for three months until you're able to enjoy TALES FROM THE MONSTROSITY SCROLLS, the new album from RAINBOW BEAST & THE ROCK BAND LAND ROCKERS, I have already set the dial for February 11, 2014 and returned with a copy. 

With running this website, being extremely active on social networks, and making a large part of my living from "new media" over course of the past decade, it often surprises people when they learn that I'm not big on tech for kids. Yes, I share news on the latest Apps and App-enabled toys, but I do that for the majority - the folks that are into that sort of thing, a large portion of my friends and readers. While I won't rule it out for the future, I do not own an iPad, nor do I own a tablet of any kind. While my little ones do, on rare occasion, get to check out an App or video on one of our Windows Phones, I'm not into giving them a "device" or "screen" to occupy their time, and would prefer them to embrace imaginative play, spending time outside whenever they can. I've spoken a bit about this before, and now comes a movie that hits me right in the sweet spot: PROJECT WILD THING. It's a British film created by a Dad - a film that encourages families to swap some "screen time" for some "wild time" - time spent outdoors. Watch the trailer and learn more below...
