Radio Jungle by the Pop Ups - Children's CD Reveiw and Giveaway

My family was recently introduced to the music of The Pop Ups. We had never heard of them before, man were we missing out! Let me just say that my son is a BIG fan now! Their newest CD, Radio Jungle, has quickly become part of our afternoon playtime music selection.

There are eleven songs on this CD and my kids like them all. It's entertaining and educational at the same time. The songs on this album are fun and catchy. These are the kind of songs that make you want to interact and sing along. I've found myself and my older children singing along a number of times.

Although my kids dance to each song, I especially love to watch my son try to do the dance they sing about in the song "the bat". I tried to get him on video doing it but he always gets shy and stops doing it. It is TOO CUTE! Another favorite of ours is math rock. I love that he is learning to count while having fun listening to the song! Having fun always makes learning so much easier. 

You can visit The Pop Ups website here and listen to "Connect the Stars." This is the first single released from the CD. You can also download it while you are there.

This Brooklyn based musical duo (Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein) have one CD out already, Outside Voices, as well as a stage show “PASTA: A Pop Ups Puppet Musical." Radio Jungle, their Second Collection of Indie Rock Gems, is set to be released on April 3rd. They are scheduling a spring and summer tour so be sure to check out their show dates.

The Pop Ups have two NYC performances soon: Symphony Space in Manhattan on March 31st, and Littlefields Brooklyn on April 15th.

Where to buy: iTunes, CDBaby and other retailers.
