Back Seats. My #1 pet peeve when it comes to cars. Let's face it, what most vehicles consider to be a legitimate "back seat" is barely suitable for any human being to fit in comfortably... but regardless of size, they can be a place of adventure for kids. They can also be a place for little ones to rock...
Not long ago, the folks at Contigo approached me about joining them as a "Road Warrior." While I'm just as much a fan of MAD MAX 2 as the next guy, this had nothing to do with zipping across a post-apocalyptic landscape in a highly-modified vehicle while rolling with the whole "One Man Can Make A Difference" motif.

Some exciting news just sped into Rock Father HQ this morning involving two companies that we dig: MATTEL and TOY STATE. The two toymakers have entered into a partnership that will allow Toy State to create a brand-new line of "over-the-top lights and sound and remote controlled HOT WHEELS-branded cars."

With the new "Rock Father Rides" section just-launched, now is a great time to start the discussion.  Check Tire...
Memorial Day Weekend: For many, it's the official start of the Summer Season. It's a big travel weekend, and as some families pile into the car for their first major road trip of the year, the soundtrack for adventure can be called into question. For those looking for some fresh, family-friendly jams, The Rock Father has you covered with...
Originally written by James Zahn (The Rock Father) as a Guest Post at TTPM Around the Blogosphere, there has been a lot of discussion regarding “gender-neutral” toys in recent months.
