We had attended the premiere of Kazoops and the children quite enjoyed it. We had a great time and when we were asked to review the new Kazoops album, I said yes.
The Water Hole Song is catchy and all about the animals that visit the water hole.
Dino Saurus Games is about Dinosaurs and a great way of introducing children to different dinosaurs as well as different sports.
Celebrate Song – this one is my favourite as it’s about celebrating the little things in life which we often don’t do. I found this a great song for children and quite inspirational as we take time to celebrate things like flowers blooming and biting apples.
Matching Socks – We loved this one when we saw it. Why do we need to wear matching socks? No, really!
Rain Song – A song to celebrate rain – perfect for the UK. 🙂
Here’s a little more about the album –
Children’s TV producer, Cheeky Little Media, is proud to announce the worldwide release of ‘Just Imagine – Volume 1’ on Friday 28th October. A total of 20 songs from the popular Kazoops series will be included in this first album, and digital service providers will include iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora and Youtube. Fans of the pre-school TV series will be able to either buy the album and individual songs or alternatively stream the music online.
Since the launch of the series in July 2016, the music in Kazoops has been inspiring children with its variety of genres and whimsical combination of guitars, ukuleles, drums, glockenspiels, retro synths, string vocals and more. The beautiful songs from each episode successfully highlight the magic and power of a child’s imagination, and what sets the songs apart is that parents love and enjoy them too.
Patrick Egerton, Executive Producer, Cheeky Little Media, commented: “Music pervades Kazoops at all levels, and not just because each episode contains a unique song.
“The seed of the series concept came from our song writer and performer Scott Langley. He had written these amazing songs about a boy and a pig who went on imaginary journeys. When we heard how ‘grown-up’ the music was, and how clever and funny Scott’s lyrics were, we knew we had the start of something cool for a pre-school audience. The songs are key to the show, and give us these visually rich adventures at the centre of each episode that are crucial to the story but can also stand alone as mini-music videos in their own right.”
Kazoops is all about Monty, a six-year-old boy who challenges life’s questions both big and small with the help of his limitless imagination and his best friend, Jimmy Jones, the family pet pig. In each episode, the duo enters make-believe worlds to challenge everyday preconceptions such as ‘do things have to be the same all the time?’ or ‘do all games really need rules?’
All the song videos are very colourful and would appeal to children. Since it also ties in with the CBeebies series Kazoops, these are handy songs to have for children to watch at any time – on trains or waiting at the doctors etc.
They have very catchy tunes too and easy for little ones to sing along as there is quite a bit of repetition in the songs.
We quite enjoyed listening to them and though my older two are a bit old for them, they enjoyed the music. My little one loved the songs.
They are also especially great for listening to at nursery and pre-schools.
I was asked to review these songs and received a payment for doing so. All ideas and opinions are my own.
