Hey guys, I’m Pixel Dad!

You may have noticed I’ve been a bit absent for about a week now. Well, I have a good excuse. I’m officially a dad!

SpencerDaddyGrayskullSay hello to Spencer David, my baby boy! He was born on January 3rd, 2014….2 weeks earlier than expected!

Obviously this has put me a bit behind in my reviewing duties, but I’ve got to be honest…I’ve been enjoying my time off spent with him so incredibly much! This little dude is the coolest, and I am just really enjoying life right now.

But have no fear, things will return to normal around here soon. I’ve got plenty of new videos on the way, and New York Toy Fair is just around the corner! I just wanted to take a moment to share my great news with you!

I love this whole “being a dad” thing!

    Great News – all the best for your Family.
    I am also a "younger" dad (my son is 2 1/2 years old now) – it is a big but fun challenge to master šŸ˜‰

    … one of the first things I started to do was to recollect vintage Motu for him to enjoy – and he really loves them (of course I dont let smaller parts in his Hands) šŸ˜‰

    best wishes from Vienna.

    He's adorable, congrats to you and Stina

  • Sie121 says:

    Congrats dan really happy for you. You're a great reviewer and put so much effort into everything, so I can only imagine how good of a dad you will be. Spencer is lucky to have you both as parents

    Congraduation Dan he's a handsome little feller lol

  • djliono says:

    Congrats man, I had the feeling this is why you have been gone and have been very excited for the news. Best wishes to you and your whole family(all 3 of you now). This is truly awesome.

    Congratulations, Dan! I'm so happy for you and that everything went well!

    My daughter, Adora, is now almost 5 months and it's amazing to watch what new things she learns to do every few days. I'm really glad to see you introducing Spencer to Grayskull so young! Adora laid down next to me while we put it together in her room. While He-Man and She-Ra were present, so was Leopold (her stuffed red duplo bunny whom seems to be her favorite toy). While I've heard so many people talk about having children as forcing you to "grow up" (and in many ways it does) for me it's also allowed me to begin approaching things with a mindset of childlike wonder again. While Adora's still too young to fully grasp everything about playing with her toys, it's a blast to watch her reactions to stuff. She loves the chunky little people and stuff that's red for some reason!

    It's really quite amazing. I didn't think anything would be better in Grayskull in 2013, but a kid proved me wrong. šŸ˜‰ Sounds like you'll probably have to start reviewing some Fisher Price stuff now, eh?

    Hi Dan,

    my best wishes to all of you. Well, god thing, that Mattel has lowered the jawbridge of Castle Grayskull. This little guy seems to fit through the front door šŸ˜‰

    Greeting from Germany

  • NoRedemption says:

    Congrats, Dan! Life will never be the same, in the best kind of way.

    I know that little guy will never want for toys or someone to play with. Having my son has really rekindled my love of toys, and it's so much fun just to play together. And of course we watch your reviews together, and when you do the comparison time I tell him all about the toys I had as a kid.

    Does this mean you'll start reviewing some infant and toddler toys?

    Keep up the good work!

  • rankinman says:

    Congratulations Dan, enjoy this ride that your on because in the blink of an eye, he'll be grown. My Daughter is fixing to be 2 and it seemed like just yesterday I could hold her between my hand and elbow and now I'm playing chase around with her while she's laughing like a very tiny crazy person. Is that a skeletor onsie, nice.

  • M4n4t4rms says:

    Congratulations to you and your wife.

    So may we expect a review of your new Baby Spencer David and his new diaper filling action feature :-).
    I wish you and your little family all the best for the future. Enjoy the time with them.

  • Brad_Bane says:

    Congrats Dan, im really happy for you and your family. There is no greater joy than being a father. My son is 17 and will be leaving in the fall to college. Enjoy every waking moment with your son. Time flies before you know it buddy. Once again congrats to both you and your lovely wife. Best wishes.

  • Pixel Dan says:

    I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who commented offering me congratulations! I'm just now starting to get back into the swing of things online here. You probably noticed that reviews have started trickling out again, and I'm getting myself caught up on e-mail, comments, etc.

    So thanks to you all! I really appreciate it! šŸ˜€
