Father’s Day Gift Idea: Kodak Pulse Digital Frame Review and Giveaway

There is a ton of great items about to hit dadarocks over the next week but I’m really excited to talk about this… Kodak over the course of this week is running a great Facebook event where people can upload pictures of their dads or their kids dads (get it perhaps your husband father to your children). Those photos will be shown on the Kodak.com homepage and on Kodak’s Times Square Billboard in New York City. Check out this Facebook event page http://kodak.ly/shareDad and just upload a picture. This isn’t a contest, there are no prizes, but kodak will be selecting 100 to 200 photos for the kodak.com homepage and then some of those will be on the Kodak billboard in Times Square on Father’s Day – which is pretty cool. ...  [ read more ]

Outside fun with the Bubble Twister and Junkball Review and Giveaway

There are two things about spring and summer that I love its finally time to get outside and play.

The Maclaren Beatles Yellow Submarine Stroller – Review and Giveaway

I’m a mega-super mega fan of The Beatles, I grew up listening to their music… I grew up going to their concerts (well the remaining beatles that is…) there wasn’t anything in the baby market of strollers that really was cool for Dad until I saw this… When the Maclaren first released the Beatles Yellow Submarine stroller [Amazon] I was drooling… I had an older Maclaren, that I put it through hell – I mean this stroller was abused – we took it around to EVO Conference in Salt Lake, to Texas, to Florida, to over place we drove – its still around being no worst for the wear.  So when I got this stroller and said go test it… I was like a kid in the candy store – I beat on this stroller beyond the normal use… Its even become the stroller I’ve used this winter pushing in to snow banks, sheets of ice and its still awesome! ...  [ read more ]

Disney on Ice Princess Wishes review and giveaway

I was able to see the new Disney on Ice: Princess Wishes at Madison Square Garden. When I think ice shows I think horrible costumes with sequins, bad music and ice skating moves that I can do.

The Ohmies – NYC Show for Kids Review & Giveaway

I love nothing more then taking my child Marc to see a show that is totally different then anything he’s seen before.  This is totally true of the Ohmies, we’ve done rock concerts, we’ve done the stage characters in full dress-up, we’ve done the puppets but we haven’t really done a broadway type show.  Thats just what this is, its got song, dance, adults dressed as bugs, dogs, snakes, and a bunch of other critters that I cant really recall.  I loved how they tie some yoga into the show, and how interactive it was for the kids. ...  [ read more ]

Celebrate National BUBBLE BATH Day with Pocoyo + Friends! Giveaway

Yup you heard right today’s national bubble bath day – thankfully your wife isnt going to kick you out of the house for forgetting… but the kicks might be extra cranky without that quality bath time. I’ve already written about how I do most the bathing in my house, well until my wife thinks my son smells like a gym locker room bag – which translates to you’re doing a bad job now step it up with the scrubbing. One thing I’ve learned is that toys in the tub and playtime is an important part to bathing a toddler, cause its about time in the tub the longer they stay wet the more likely it is that I can clean him. ...  [ read more ]
