Yo Gabba Gabba: Music Is Awesome!
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this CD includes songs from the popular and groundbreaking Nick Jr. TV series, Yo Gabba Gabba! The songs are mostly high-energy dance tracks that offer kids good reason to get up and groove. Of course, there's nothing objectionable here; rather, many of the songs give positive messages, from big lessons such as learning to play nice to specifics such as dental hygiene and hand washing.
What's the story?
Yo Gabba Gabba! isn't your ordinary preschool TV show. It's well-known for its retro puppets and funky music accompaniment and has attracted many hip celebrities to its Technicolor stage. Now with YO GABBA GABBA: MUSIC IS AWESOME!, kids can enjoy the upbeat tunes they know and love from the show. Even kids who aren't familiar with the program will appreciate the cool, funky sounds. Like a preschool dance party, this CD features lots of techno-infused pop tracks that sound like they could be straight from a deejay's turntable rather than a kiddie album.
Is it any good?
If you want to be the cool parent, this is the album you need to be blasting at the next playdate. It's fun, funky, and kid-friendly. How many other kids' albums can sing about washing hands and getting over rejection all while sounding like they're coming from a rave or '70s disco party? Elements of Parliament Funkadelic, Blondie, and other groundbreaking pop sounds collide in a friendly and fun manner here, and the result is musical confetti. Guaranteed to get the kiddies charged up more than a bag of lollipops, this CD is perfect for rainy days when the kids need to work off some energy. Thank goodness there's also an adequate cooldown with a handful of mellow songs to get kids ready for bed.
