What's the story?

On ROBBERT BOBBERT & THE BUBBLE MACHINE, musician Robert Schneider projects an energetic, get-on-the-floor-and-play-type persona. His songs bear a strong affinity for 60s rock groups like the Beach Boys and The Beatles. You'll hear tunes with fun titles like "I Am A Clock" and "We R Super Heroes" whose memorable lyrics and infectious beats are sure to inspire kids to get up and move.

Is it any good?

Imagination and a playfulness are the real stars on Robbert Bobbert. The songs are engaging and fun, with instrumental tracks that make thematic sense -- lumbering on "The Mighty Mighty Elephant," delicate on "A Tiny Sheep," and even a chipmunk-style voice on "Fee Fi Fo Fee Fi Fum." As an added bonus, the CD insert becomes a coloring book.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about imagination and pretend play. The song "We R Super Heroes" might make you want to be a super hero. What super powers would you want to have? The song "I Am A Clock" pretends you're a clock. How would you act if you were a clock. Would you say, "tickety tock" just like in the song?
