Little fans of the CBeebies show Kazoops, which launched earlier this year, have now got another way to enjoy their favourite show. The music from the top rated animated TV series, has just been released for the first time on album by children’s TV producer, Cheeky Little Media. ‘Just Imagine – Volume 1’ contains a total of 20 original songs from the popular Kazoops series. It's available from digital service providers including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora and Youtube. Fans of the pre-school TV series will be able to either buy the whole album for £7.99 or choose individual songs to download.
Kazoops stars six year old Monty, who challenges life’s questions both big and small with the help of his limitless imagination and his best friend, Jimmy Jones, the family's pet pig. In each episode, the duo enters make-believe worlds to challenge everyday preconceptions, finding the answers to questions such as 'do all games need rules?' Each episode includes an original song, written and performed by Scott Langley, which inspires children by highlighting the magic and power of their imaginations. With clever, funny lyrics and combining a number of musical instruments and genres, they complement the show but also make lovely standalone songs for pre-schoolers to enjoy.
With titles such as 'Matching Socks', 'Rain Song', 'Space Games' and 'Celebrate', the songs feature ideas and concepts that kids will relate to. The songs don't patronise the young listeners, concentrating on quality rather than gimmicks. They have educational content and explore things in an interesting child friendly way. Even grown-ups can enjoy the songs and might find themselves singing along!
You can watch a YouTube video of one of the songs 'Dino Saurus Games' by clicking the button below. We love the quirky animation, cute characters, funny lyrics and the catchy tune. If you haven't discovered Kazoops already, give it a go!
The album has launched in English but will be followed by a subsequent global music release in 2017 in 18 other languages. You can find Kazoops Just Imagine Volume 1 on Amazon now.
