More fun kids’ music on the gift guide today! Little Boo and I recently had a listen to the new CD from Toronto-based children’s entertainers, the Space Chums!, and I’m delighted to share it with you now.
The Space Chums! are Disco-Cosmonaut Nickolai, Space Ninja Linda, Galacto-Fashionista Gussy and Bleep Bloop their robot drummer. They have recently arrived from outer space and are on a mission to discover planet earth with the help of their young earthling fans “who know a thing or two about a thing or three.” Their CD is titled “Blast Off!” and includes 10 high-energy, dance-able tracks. I say we had “a listen,” but actually we put the CD on repeat and listened about 4 times through in the car.
Little Boo and I each had our own favourites. I’m a big fan of “Beeble Bop,” which is basically a silly and funny, speeding up song. LB really got into the groovy “Crazy Moves,” acting out the lyrics with his crazy booster seat dancing. “I got crazy arms, watch me dancin’, dancin’. I got crazy arms, watch me dance!” There’s also some fun rhyming action in “Word Wizard,” where Disco-Cosmonaut Nickolai proves his prowess by rhyming even the prehistoric word icthyosaurus. You’ll have to listen to hear how he does it ??
Kids’ music that is fun, upbeat, and pleasing to adult ears is always a welcome addition to our home. Music that gets you moving and grooving together as a family is a great idea for holiday giving. If you’d like to check out “Blast Off!” for yourself, you can stream it on the Space Chums website for a preview. You can support the group and purchase this album online at CDBaby.com, either as a physical copy or an MP3 download. (Songs can be purchased individually as well.) The physical CD comes with a sticker sheet for some extra fun.
The Chums have kindly provided a copy of their intergalactic CD (with stickers!) as a giveaway for one of you lucky readers. Entries are via the Rafflecopter widget below and will be accepted until 12:00 midnight EST on December 7. Open to Canadian residents only.
Best of luck!
