Step2 Brand AmbassadorAs a Step2 Brand Ambassador, I’ve had the joy of bringing you a ton of news, reviews and features on new products from The Step2 Company over these past few years. For Fall 2015, we’re going a little bit bigger, and I’m helping to drop the curtain on 11 new products (MADE IN THE USA*) destined to be sought-after by children, and almost certain to make several Hot Holiday Toy lists (a few will be in my own Holiday Wish Guide). The lineup is impressive, and we’re inviting all of you to share in our excitement by taking part in a very special giveaway – one in which the winner will get their choice of which item they’ll receive from the Fall 2015 reveals! Ready to rock? 


The Home Depot Pro Play Workshop & Utility Bench (Toys “R” Us Exclusive) – One of the most popular toys here at Rock Father HQ is the earlier, and smaller Handyman Workbench. Drawing from feedback and wishes from kids and parents alike, this new entry into Step2’s Home Depot collection at Toys “R” Us is the ultimate workshop for little builders and makers! 


2015 Holiday Wish Guide PickStep2 Hot Wheels Toddler-to-Twin Racecar Bed – THE ROCK FATHER 2015 Holiday Wish Guide Pick: Last year, The Step2 Company partnered with Mattel for a series of products based on THOMAS & FRIENDS. Those items, including a Coaster and a Bedroom Set, were both huge hits, and this year the partnership between the two toymakers kicks into high-gear with an officially-licensed HOT WHEELS Bed (which I gave you a sneak-preview of here), and matching dresser! This bed may well be the biggest HOT WHEELS item ever created, and it takes the “car bed” phenomenon to new levels of excitement with built-in tracks and play storage. Yes, this bed is also a play set! While the base model comes in classic HOT WHEELS Blue & Orange, stay tuned… rumor has it that there just might be a retailer exclusive edition on the way in a different color.

  • Accommodates a toddler (crib) mattress, which can be easily converted into a twin mattress
  • Tap-on headlights and race car rims enhance realism of the car bed
  • Molded-in race car tracks run on each side of the bed and extra Hot Wheels® tracks can be added for a longer race
  • Air intakes on each side of the bed provide a flat surface for a cup, book or children’s car collection


2015 Holiday Wish Guide PickWonderball Fun House – THE ROCK FATHER 2015 Holiday Wish Guide Pick: Kids love playhouses, and kids love colorful play like that of a ball pit. Combine all of that into one, and you’ve got the general idea of the Wonderball Fun House – a unique offering with tons of play value, action/reaction and all kinds of motion.

“Toddlers will enhance their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they toss the balls onto the roof. This magical playhouse has a bright color scheme and open design that will fascinate children. The compact frame of the fun house will fit inside a playroom or outside in the yard. The WonderBall Fun House will keep your kids active for hours!”

  • On the outside, toss balls on the roof and watch as they fall through the maze of activities, making fun plinking sounds as they go!
  • On the inside, place balls on the planks and watch the fun “plinko” effect
  • Working Dutch door provides open and close play
  • Flip the balls into the house or into the maze with the included flipper
  • Open design provides parents with a view of all the laughter and fun taking place
  • Bottom basin is the perfect place to store the balls once playtime is over
  • 12-piece accessory set included


Mighty My Size Table & Chairs Set – Compact for small spaces, this table and chairs set is great for indoor/outdoor use, and features the trendy grey/green color scheme that so many are enjoying right now. It’s sturdy, and the chairs can be stored underneath the table for maximum space-saving.


Push Along Buddy (2015 Edition) – A true classic, the Push Along Buddy is an iconic piece of the Step2 fleet, and this year it gets an upgrade. Sleeker, cuter, and with a design that saves a bit of space while giving kids the exact same amount of room, this sweet ride can be used in lieu of a stroller for fun and adventure while being pushed by mom or dad.


Easygoing Wagon (Toys “R” Us Exclusive) Blue or Pink – A completely new design when it comes to wagons, this new style features an opening (and latching) side door and seatbelts to keep the kids strapped-in while the wagon is moving. It’s got Step2’s proprietary “Whisper Wheels” for a smooth and quiet ride, and the handle tucks in underneath for space-saving storage. There’s even reflective decals for added nighttime safety.

Step2 Play Kitchens: When it comes to play kitchens, no one does it better that Step2. For Fall 2015, they’ve got four new models, all of which have features that you’ll only find from Step2… and the look and play great!
