Connecting the Dots: Bobs and Lolo CD Review and Giveaway!


There's nothing that makes my heart melt more than seeing my two year old sing and dance along to catchy tunes and really enjoy being a kid!  Ever notice how toddlers can just rock it out to a tune and not feel self-conscious or worry about looking silly? They just start dancing whenever they hear music. It's beautiful! I often wonder at what point in our lives do we lose that part of us and become aware of what others think?

I secretly hope my daughter never loses that freedom of being able to dance like no one is watching or even cares. I know that she may one day become self-conscious and not want to dance in front of anyone, but for now I just want her to enjoy it.

What Little One does enjoy tremendously is Bobs & Lolo's music.  The fun, peppy, talented singing duo had my daughter hooked upon hearing "Raindrop Pop" for the first time.

Who are Bobs & Lolo?

They're 2010 Juno nominees, Robyn Hardy (Bobs) and Lorraine Pond (Lolo). The musical pair are dedicated to helping children connect the natural world with music, movement, fun, and make-believe. Their songs are fun and at the same time, they teach children how to care about themselves, others, and the planet they live on.

When Little One listens to Bobs & Lolo, she learns about nature, animals, family, friends, and the world around her. In essence, she really is learning how to "connect the dots". She's only two years old, but is starting to make connections.

Each song on their newest CD shows that "connections exist between different things".  Little One's  favourite song on Bobs & Lolo's newest CD is "Family Tree".  She immediately made the connection that her family consists of parents, grandparents, etc. She was naming off members of our family. It was so cute.

I just think it's adorable seeing her react to the music. The wide-eyed expressions, the smiles, giggles, and squeals...There's something so special about seeing how kids react to music. Priceless.

Little One loves dancing to "Tick Tock" and grabs our hands so we can dance with her. I cannot tell you how many times we've listened to Connecting the Dots! The moment I opened our package from Bobs & Lolo, Little One wanted to tear the CD open!

Connecting the Dots  will be released into retail stores on May 17, 2011. Make sure to buy your copy of the CD!

Having said this, we do have something special for one lucky blog reader!  Bobs & Lolo have given us a copy of their new CD (it hasn't even hit the stores yet!) along with some cool Bobs & Lolo stickers and an autographed Bobs & Lolo photograph!
