SI KIDS Brand AmbassadorAs the 2013 MLB World Series is set to begin tomorrow, the folks at OYO Sportstoys have teamed with my friends at Sports Illustrated Kids for a special video that animates some of the best moments from the 2013 ALCS & NLCS into brick and minifigure form. Yes, bricks and minifigures... OYO makes sports-themed minifigures that could be considered the distant cousins of similar brands like MEGA Bloks and LEGO. Honestly, I wasn't aware of them until today, but now I have my eye on a few. Check out the toy versions of the BOSTON RED SOX and ST. LOUIS CARDINALS rockin' the bases below...  

All month, my friends at Sprout have been gearing up for Halloween with their ongoing Sprout Halloween Parade, in which kids can march in place in their Halloween costumes and use the "Send to Sprout" App to submit their video to become a part of the user-generated parade. Now, we're just a week away from when the real treats start rolling on October 28, and the Sunshine Barn takes on a Halloween theme for the Sunny Side Up Show (airing live, 9am-noon ET) and the 24-hour preschool network starts airing some terrific Halloween content. Here's a preview...

Watch: JOSH & THE JAMTONES - "Fill It Up"

Written by

jamtonesbearBoston Kindie Rockers JOSH & THE JAMTONES just-released album, BEAR HUNT!  has been spinning for families for a few weeks now, and today I'm sharing their new video for "Fill It Up," the 14th track on that record. They're a band that claims to rock even "Aunt Ethel and Fido the Dog." I don't know either of those people (human or canine), but we should probably all just take their word for it just to be on the safe side. Check out the new video below...

This Tuesday, the crew at Roma Music Group will release their latest collection of baby-friendly metal jams when TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR: LULLABY VERSIONS OF SYSTEM OF A DOWN hits digital retailers. The new set takes a dozen of Serj Tankian and Co.'s biggest hits, and reworks them into nursery-ready "lush instrumental" melodies perfect for your youngest little rocker. Check out "Chop Suey!" below, and if you pre-order now on iTunes, you'll receive that track as an instant download.

I always like to include some GHOSTBUSTERS action in my annual 31 Days of Halloween, but while we await any real news of GHOSTBUSTERS III, we're sort of in an off-year. You see, it's next year that's the biggie... when GHOSTBUSTERS celebrates 30 Years of Spectral Removal and Storage. In the meantime, we could flashback to 2012 when I featured both HOOBASTANK and MELO-M rocking uniquely different versions of Ray Parker Jr's Huey Lewis and the News-inspired theme song, or I could just drop-in a link to MISTAH F.A.B.'s GHOSTBUSTERS-sampling "Ghost Ride It" video... but we won't (even though I just did). Instead, let's take a quick look at a few new 30th Anniversary GHOSTBUSTERS Minimates that are coming next spring from Diamond Select Toys. It's Day 20 already...

Chicago Toy & Game Fair 2013Chicago Toy and Game Fair Giveaway: Week 2 of 6!

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?
