Earlier this month, THE BEATRIX GIRLS released their debut EP, when MEET THE BEATRIX arrived on iTunes. These rockin' young ladies might not be a household name just yet, but Lark (Bass), Ainsley (Drums), Brayden (Guitar/Vocals), and Chantal (Keyboards) are poised for stardom. You see, they’re musicians, they’re role models for a new generation of empowered young girls, and they spread a message that you can accomplish your dreams through talent, tenacity and old-fashioned hard work... but THE BEATRIX GIRLS are something else as well... they're dolls.

Chicago Toy and Game Fair Giveaway: Week 3 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?
In a season where new "Halloween specials" have been light, there's a real classic vibe that comes with CURIOUS GEORGE: A HALLOWEEN BOO FEST. Making it's television debut this Monday (10/28) on PBS KIDS (check your local listings), this first-ever pumpkin-spiced tale for the little monkey has a warmth that I haven't really gotten from recent seasonal fare. Seeing my oldest curl-up on the couch with her Curious George mask as we took in a sneak-preview here at Rock Father HQ, it reminded me of those nights as a kid in the 1980s where I'd do the same while eagerly-awaiting IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN. With that, CURIOUS GEORGE: A HALLOWEEN BOO FEST secures its place as part of 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father.
