Blue Skies!

When my big girls were little, one of their favourite (and mine, honestly) bands was Bobs and Lolo. We had all their CDs, knew the words to every song, and were thrilled to go to their concert when they played near us. If you've got little guys, really, look them up, they're great.

As the kids got bigger, and moved on to music aimed at an older audience, I still listened to Musical Adventures and Action Packed around the house. Eventually they got put away, and it was kind of sad.

So imagine how excited I was when Bean showed up and I could get them back out again. Not only the old ones, but they released a new CD this year that was nominated for a Juno award!

One of the things I've always liked about Bobs and Lolo is that their music isn't all the same. They play a wide variety of styles that make their CDs easy to listen to over and over without getting bored or needing to hide it for a break. And Blue Skies delivers the same kind of musicality while being kid and parent friendly alike. Even though my big guys are super mature pre-teens now (as far as they're concerned, anyway), they sing and dance along every time.

If you're looking for something new for your kids - and honestly, all my kids enjoy them at 2, 9, and almost 13 - definitely give Bobs and Lolo a listen.  Bean is just learning to talk, and she asks for them by name. Granted it's "Bobalodo dance" that she asks for, but I know what she means.
