Here's to dads everywhere
Just in case it isn’t highlighted and circled on your calendar, it’s Father's Day on Sunday (21 June). To celebrate the best dads out there, we’ve scoured the internet and it’s social media channels for some shining examples of fatherly brilliance.
Action movie dad
This dad is called Daniel Hashimoto and he works for DreamWorks Studios. In a short series of videos Hashimoto’s son, James, becomes the main character in a magical world where the floor really is lava and lightsabers are definitely not toys.
If you like the look of this, check out FXGuru for all of the special effects, but sadly none of the DreamWorks pay cheque.
Self-proclaimed ‘World’s Best Father’ dad
Dave Engledow is an American photographer known for his World’s Best Dad series. In his tongue-in-cheek collection, Engledow’s daughter, Alice Bee, finds herself helping daddy with a vast variety of hobbies and tasks.

The real Toy Story dad
We might have to give a nod to mum here, but this Kansas dad proves that imagination never dies.
Every November, or ‘Dinovember’ as it’s been termed, the parents take their four children’s dinosaur toys every night and set them up in different scenes, telling the children that they come to life at night and wreak havoc around the house.
The stunt was originally designed to get the kids to sleep quicker, which might be worth a shot for new, sleep-deprived parents.
This arty father is hoping his creative flair has been passed on, as he helps his kids out with their drawings. Colourising their doodles, he turns his 4 and 6 year olds’ playtime sketches into works of art. If your dad's the artistic type, he might like our top apps for cartoonists.
