Review + Giveaway - PLAY Music CD

This week I received a little package in the post containing a copy of the PLAY music compilation CD from the Los Angeles based music and movement program of the same name. The CD contains a collection of favourites from the PLAY curriculum, and features artists such as Randy Kaplan, Norm Jones of Rhythm Child, Syd Straw, Victoria Williams, and Dan Bern.

PLAY Music CD Review - Los Angeles Music Program

The PLAY album is a collection of classics for kids that presents musical storytelling in a way that encourages participation and is fun for sing-a-longs, especially for the littlest members of the family. One of my favourite tracks on the album is “Mama Don’t Allow” by Randy Kaplan because it’s just so much fun to sing to the kids. However, parents beware, if your kids have never been into “spoons clanging” they will be now!

Another track that got us grooving is “The Fire Engine” (also by Randy Kaplan), as I really dig his voice. The kids love the rhythmic beats of “The Ants go Marching” by Tony Silver and “Ladybug” by Mallory Bishop. You also can’t beat the classics such as “Polly Wolly Doodle”, it’ll be stuck in your head for a week! Lastly, I personally love the song “Not Too Young for A Song”, it’s definitely my favourite track of them all.

You can find out more about the PLAY music program, or purchase their CD at their website.

Congratulations to our winners, Phillip C. and Michelle T.

  • Right now my daughter likes to play the game pick up the playroom…it is still fun to her at the moment!

  • Ashley Luce

    I just heard about PLAY! I am very interested in introducing some new music/games to my 2 1/2 daughter Kayla! We love to sing and dance and especially love to be goofy in our time together. We would love a copy of PLAY to see what it is all about! Good luck everyone!

    My sons favourite game right now is Hide and Seek!

  • My two young grand children love me to play hide and seek. They haven’t quite grasped the concept of hiding and always ask me if I’m coming or peek to see if I’m sneaking up on them! I have to pretend to be surprised quite a lot.

  • Mandy Graham

    We love playing hide and seek.

  • At only 5 months old my daughters new favourite game to play is “Splash Splash Splash!!” in the bath! She just invented it last night.

  • Di

    My three and a half year old is really into Mario Kart on the Nintendo Wii. We play a lot and sometimes he beats us! I checked with hubby and he has stopped ‘letting’ Zach win, so he is legitimately better than us!

  • Favorite game around our house is hide and seek – though my 2.5 yo is still grasping the concept ;) She often shows me where she’s going to hide first, or tells ME where to hide!

  • ange

    My son currently loves to play with his new removeable alphabet stickers – and I love them too.

  • My daughter is four and LOVES to have sack races. You’d be surprised the amount of fun one can have with a couple of pillow cases!

    When it’s more indoor weather she is putting on a concert/recital/performance. Such a precious age!

    Monopoly as the kids really love bankrupting me; lucky it’s not real life fortunately.

    oh, anything really. games are tops. ‘tea parties’ are a staple (sometimes in a “tent”), ‘hide & seek’ = lots of fun and, when we have a sit down, we love to play ‘memory’ with Diggers cards and ‘snap’ with Bob the Builder or Play School. we may not follow all the rules exactly, but …..
