LISA!!!
her comment: We like triceratops too! Maybe because I have a daughter named Sarah. :)


I will admit I am not someone who knows a lot about hip hop. If you went through my fairly large record collection, you could probably count all of the hip hop titles on your fingers and toes. Possibly just on your fingers if you don't count the Beastie Boys… I have the requisite De La Soul LP, a Dream Warriors CD I was into in college, Fugees CDs that were Bob's, L'Trimm because it cracks me up, a couple of Missy Elliott albums just because. Anyway, the point is, I am not someone who expected to love a Baby Loves Hip Hop release so much. But I really, really do.



The Dino 5 is a hip hop supergroup project for preschoolers helmed by noted producer Prince Paul. It's narrated by poet Ursula Rucker and tells a story about a band of dinosaur kids: MC T-Rex (Chali 2na from Jurassic 5), Billy Brontosaurus (Wordsworth from eMC), Tracy Triceratops (Ladybug Mecca from Digable Planets) , Teo Pterodactyl (Scratch from The Roots) and DJ Stegosaurus (Prince Paul).



The songs on The Dino 5 are catchy, funny and utterly listenable. Over and over and over. Kids will love "Jump Jump" and "Yeah, Me Too" and especially "What About 10?" I don't think this CD has left our stereo since it came in the mail. Roo asks for it by name and Jasper lights up when it comes on. And I don't hate it. In fact, I hum it to myself when they're not even around. So maybe I'm learning to like hip hop, too. Geez, I really need to check out the other genres in the Baby Loves Music pantheon…

To enter and win a Dino 5 CD of your own, please comment on this post with your favorite hip hop song or dinosaur. I have two copies to give away, courtesy of Baby Loves Hip Hop!

Entries will be accepted through April 30th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.

Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win! Or, you may choose to check for your nickname at Prizey.Fetch, a new site that compiles winners in one convenient place:

  1. I'm first! How exciting... I would love to give this to my nephew in whom I am trying to foster a love of dinosaurs. My first toy to him (which he loved) was Spike the Dinosaur. I am personally a fan of dinosaurs over hip-hop, but I think he'd like both!

  40. Perfect! We just attended a Baby Loves Disco event, where they played "What About 10", and my kiddo went bananas. (So did her daddy, who pulled the DJ aside to get a gander at the CD. Many of his favorite artists are the vocals for Dino5.) It doesn't hurt that she loves, LOVES dinosaurs - with at least a collection of over 100 cluttering up her bedroom floor! (And the Nat Geo poster, Discovery Channel specials - I could go on & on...)

  46. I strongly suspect my 14-month-old would love this. She starts grooving any time we're in a store that has hip hop playing. I don't know that I could name a song, though. So I'm going with favorite dinosaur. Tough call, since I'm not *that* old, but I'll go with stegasaurus.
