We won a Hello Kitty MP3 player from Amanda (thank you!) a while ago but I held off on giving it to Roo until her birthday. Do you think she likes it?!
In case you're curious, she's bopping around to the insidiously catchy strains of Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine, a new kid-centric album by Robert Scheider, of The Apples in Stereo. I love this release, it's like effervescent bubblegum made for the spawn of the indie rock generation: kid music that doesn't dumb you down or put you to sleep. Roo thinks Hey Little Puppy is the BEST. SONG. EVER. And is totally excited that she can now play it over and over again, thanks to the wonders of digital technology. Bleeping, blooping, Brian Wilson-loving music that Apples in Stereo lovers will obviously love but I think most other folks will find it charming, too. Aside from the reviewer on Amazon who said it was "nothing like what my kids liked listening to." I think his kids must suck. Sorry to be a music snob, but c'mon… what's not to like?!
