Popblast the approved pop for teenyboppers

19 Nov


When we were asked to have a listen to Popblast album & give a few copies away, I thought why not, it could prove to be a bit of a hit and a top stocking filler for the little teenyboppers this Christmas.

Well, I wasn’t wrong, ‘Popblast went down a storm in our house, my youngest 23 month old Harley swung his nappy for an hour at least.

Popblast is a CD jam packed with non explicit pop music aimed at children who like to sing & dance. The CD is crammed with awesome upbeat pop music  that us parents can trust.

In my opinion, Popblast is simply wonderful, it’s fab tunes engage children in movement, song and dance, with all the dance moves given in simple steps like, ‘clap your hands’ or ‘stamp your feet’  making it easy to follow for even the youngest of ravers.

Yes, myself and Harley had a blast listening, dancing and singing along to this album. Harley loved the ‘Pyjama song’ and displayed some pretty cool moves to the ‘Monsters stomp’ Even the older two got in on the act!

I’ve already stated the benefits of dance for children on the autism spectrum and this CD is just perfect. Little man loves music and he loved dancing with his baby bro, it really has been a mini party at ours this past week.

Children will have a brilliant time dancing around the bedroom with a hairbrush as a mic. No more sitting watching the box as Popblast will engage your child in some energetic dance, helping them to stay fit and healthy while being dealt a massive helping of fun in the process.

Popblast is great for all and may provide a stack of benefits for the child on the autism spectrum or those with additional needs. This especially looks to be the case when it comes to the Live shows, that promise to teach children some important life skills through the use of motivational interaction using games, song, and dance routines. These skills involve the issues surrounding friendships, respect and personal well-being to name a few. I honestly haven’t attended an event and I’m purely stating my opinions having watched some of the videos of the live events and listening to this fantastic album which really kind of speaks for itself!

If you fancy attending one of the live events, I’d suggest keeping your eyes peeled and ears pinned back listening out for dates and checking the Popblast site for event updates. 

The fabulous new Popblast album consists of ten fun tracks including that of the groovy ‘Pyjama song’ that Harley went mental for! All songs are available for download from all major outlets or can be purchased through the ‘Popblast website’ or at one of their spectacular live events.

You can even listen to the songs on the Popblast website before you buy… How can you get it wrong?

However, despite the ease that comes with getting ahold of a copy of this album, wouldn’t it be just awesome to get your hands on a one for free?

I was given 5 copies of the Popblast album… one for myself to review and 4 to give away!

So… Do you fancy doing the Monster Stomp or the Pyjama Dance on Christmas Day?

If that was a yes, and I do hope it was! Then here’s how you can win yourself and you’re teenyboppers an official Popblast album…

Win Peppa pigs brand new DVD title

16 Oct

This week’s been all about the pig…

At the start of the week we received a copy of Peppa pig international day to carry out a review. Harley is a massive Bob the builder fan and his been watching Bob pretty much every day, so it was nice when he agreed to watch a little Peppa. 

On the very next day I received an email from the very lovely Romanian mum offering me a lovely little gift… Well, Little is the wrong word, It wasn’t a little gift at all, it was actually a family ticket for four for the Peppa pig live treasure hunt  show at the Gi in Guilford this pass Friday.

Romanian mum had won the tickets from another lovely blogger but wasn’t able to attend due to work comitments. I felt quite humbled that she had thought of me and wish to publicly thank her for here kindness here on my blog!

THANK YOU ROMANIAN MUM  YOU’RE AWESOME.

I took Harley my 22 month old along with my sister and her daughter who is just ten weeks younger than Harley. Wow, They loved it and Harley danced to all songs and bless him, he even copied the actions.

So by the time I left the Gi and traveled on the train back to southeast London I was all Peppa-ed  Out.

I, however could only speak for myself as Harley had only just began! He disappeared upstairs only to appear with a Peppa DVD along with the statement,

“Peppa on… mummy”…

As lovely as Peppa is, I actually fell asleep while it was playing only to wake the next morning with an elbow wedged in my side. 

Since Friday I’ve heard Peppa as background noise as its been spinning in the DVD player non stop so my guess is Harley thinks its great DVD.

(and so did I the first, second and maybe even third time! A tad bored by the fifth I think, :))

Nevertheless regardless of the toddler wearing the hell out off it, the new “Peppa pig international day” DVD is a fab collection of episodes that are sure to put a smile on the faces of all little Peppa fans.

Here’s a bit of info on the latest title added to the Peppa DVD collection.
