I didn't intend to have a dual-dose of GHOSTBUSTERS in this year's 31 Days of Halloween here on The Rock Father, but sometimes things just happen. Athena Stamos, host of CraveOnline's STAR CARS series, got in touch earlier today with the latest episode of her award-winning webseries about some of the most famous rides on the road. The latest?...
We don't have HESS EXPRESS stores here in the Midwest, but my friends on the East Coast do, and today comes some pre-Holiday news regarding an annual tradition for those with a Hess nearby: The Hess Toy Truck. For nearly 50 years, families have been picking up and collecting the Hess Toy Trucks, which were introduced by Leon Hess...
As of this writing, I have mentioned KNIGHT RIDER in no less than 20 of the 1,804 articles that currently reside here on The Rock Father.

As an Official Toy State Test Driver, I get the opportunity to check out some fantastic new toys with my girls here in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house and neighborhood). Being a toy tester means that we are, in fact, "testing"...
I know you don't want to hear it, but here's some reality. As I type this, there are only 78 days until Christmas. Yes, as people may complain about the "Christmas Creep," make no mistakes, and don't let the holidays creep up on you. They're practically here, and once November hits, families will be hitting the road for Thanksgiving...
Over the past few weeks, we've looked at the entire line of MEGA BLOKS Hot Wheels here on The Rock Father. When the folks at MEGA Brands started sending them to us for review here in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our home and neighborhood), we were excited, but not sure what the experience would be. What...

Continuing our series looking at the full line of MEGA Bloks Hot Wheels - all of which recently arrived here for review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our neighborhood) - today comes a look at their Rip-cord Racers. Rip-cord toys seem to be making a comeback, and they certainly bring to mind a few toys that...
