THE ROCK FATHER is a 2014 Step2 Brand AmbassadorI didn't realize it until recently, but in 2014, I have already logged more travel miles and visited more cool locales than in any other year in the 37-ish that I've been roaming the planet Earth. Thing is, I'm not done yet - and as I type these virtual words to appear on your computer/device screen, there's other adventures already on the books for the four months ahead. The most recent journey on my 2014 #RockFatherTour was a special one, and a trip that was a little bit different than most - an adventure back to Northeastern Ohio, staying in Cleveland and spending some time in the neighboring town of Streetsboro - home of The Step2 Company, who I've been working with for nearly two years - first as a "Test Driver," and most recently, as one of 10 paid Brand Ambassadors. Along with five fellow Ambassadors (a few couldn't make it this time around), this was our first time working with Step2 in-person, taking meetings and going hands-on with some of the latest products (for kids and grownups!) that are hitting the market now, and all the way into Fall of 2015. If you've ever wondered "Where the Toys Come From," I have your answer...

THE ROCK FATHER is a Step2 Brand AmbassadorAs part of my gig as Step2 Brand Ambassador, I recently took a trip to Step2 HQ in Ohio to take a peek at some of the latest toys and accessories that are at or headed to retail very soon (more on that shortly). In fact, my kids and I get to check out a lot of great new toys from Step2 (here's the latest) and while we won't be bringing this one home, I know a lot of families our there with a little conductor that would just love to ride the rails of the Isle of Sodor in their dreams with a Step2 Thomas the Tank Engine™ Toddler Bed™ . My friends and fellow Step2 Ambassadors Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro have teamed-up to host a giveaway for the Thomas the Tank Engine™ Toddler Bed™, and now THE ROCK FATHER is in on the action, sharing your chance to win one of these cool beds below! 

THE ROCK FATHER is a Step2 Brand AmbassadorAs a Step2 Brand Ambassador, my kids and I get to check out a lot of great new toys (here's the latest) - but there's no way we could possibly check them all out. Fortunately, I've met the other Step2 Ambassadors, and between the 10 of us, we've pretty much got the full line on lock. On a recent trip to Step2 HQ in Ohio, we took a look at the Neat & Tidy Cottage II - the enhanced, latest version of of the popular playhouse - complete with a charming exterior the resembles stone and wood, and plenty of built-in play features to give your kids (and the neighborhood) endless tools for quality, imaginative play.

Step2 Brand AmbassadorAt some point in the past year, both of my girls - five-year-old Addie, in particular - started displaying a real interest in doing the things that Mommy and Daddy do. Then, around six months ago, Addie started requesting a tool box and a drill, constantly telling me, "I want to build things like you, Daddy," triggering my fairly easy-to-melt heart, and after seeing it a few times, the purchase of a Home Depot toolbox that's part of an exclusive line of products sold at Toys "R" Us. Fast-forward a few months, and as part of my gig as a Step2 Brand Ambassador, we received The Home Depot Handyman Workbench - one of a few new items for Fall 2014 that Step2 has created for TRU for that same exclusive line. It's funny how things work out sometimes, and this new arrival to our State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house) really hit the sweet spot. Check it out, in-action at Rock Father HQ...

THE ROCK FATHER is a Step2 Brand AmbassadorAfter working with Step2 for almost two years as a Test Driver and now, Brand Ambassador - I finally got the chance to visit Step2 HQ in Streetsboro, Ohio last week, where I got an inside look on all the hot new toys they've got headed for retail over the next year or so. One of them is rolling out (quite literally) right now, with the new 2-in-1 Ford F-150 Raptor SVT about to hit the streets. With the ability to turn from a parent-powered push buggy into a kid-powered ride-on toy, the Raptor looks to be a must-have for kids 18 months and up as we enter the Fall season. Check it out...
