This edition of Rock Father Rides is brought to you by Collective Bias and #Pennzoil... When you're a daily driver like me, chances are you're not giving a ton of thought to the motor oil in your engine. After all, as parents, the bulk of our driving is spent running kids to-and-from school and activities. Thing is, that stop-and-go can...
For those wondering why Ellie Sattler wasn't released during the first wave of vintage-styled Jurassic Park Pop! Vinyls from Funko, she's finally rolling in! As the latest release in the Funko Pop! Rides series, the Jurassic Park Jeep with Ellie Sattler just went up for pre-order today via my friends at Entertainment Earth. Following the release of the Star...
While the Hess Corporation sold their gas stations to Speedway last year, the tradition of the Hess Toy Truck continues, and the 2015 Edition is about ready to roll. Like last year, the 2015 Hess Toy Truck will be sold online (beginning November 1), and will include five Energizer batteries and free standard shipping. What's different this year is...
AC/DC has certainly been the soundtrack for more than a few high-speed rides taken by yours truly, so when news hit my inbox that car enthusiast and sometimes racer BRIAN JOHNSON - the voice of AC/DC - would be hosting a new series called CARS THAT ROCK, my interest was piqued. Now, the problem is, it's only airing in...
Over the past few weeks, some vehicles inspired by a galaxy far, far away have been landing in the diecast aisles of retailers everywhere, with Walmart and Target being particularly infested by Imperial and Rebel forces. The first-ever partnership between Mattel and STAR WARS has given birth to the HOT WHEELS STAR WARS Collection, one component of which is...
This Sunday, the Super Bowl or "Big Game" (for companies not paying the license fee) is taking place, and for football non-fans like myself, the most important part isn't the game - it's the commercials. Of course, they tend to make their way online early these days, and that's the case with the latest offering from the folks at...
Automoblox have been around for nearly 15 years (the original idea goes back to the early 90s), but it wasn't until PlayMonster picked them up a couple of years back that they really started picking up steam. Touted as "A Real Car Brand For Kids," these rides are a modern reinvention of the classic wooden car - but with...
Seven movies in, and for the first time, I actually have a desire to see a film from THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise. I was lost on the first two movies, which I thought at the time (perhaps a revisit is in order?) were terrible - the first I recall being worse than I'd expected. So I tuned...
As we speed toward the holiday season, Mattel's Hot Wheels division is on fire. With loads of new product offerings hitting stores, the team at Mattel has revved-up their new "Challenge Accepted" initiative to remind parents (and show new ones) that "Hot Wheels are more than just a toy - they're a tool that helps kids develop life skills." Already...
While our girls are still pretty young, we already face some occasional issues with getting them strapped-in and making sure that they stay buckled-up whenever we're in the car - even when parked at the bus stop. Word on the street is that tweens (ages 8-14) can be the worst when it comes to this, and the bottom line...
