POP Party 10 CD Review

The boys love their music and dancing away to it. Jak attends theatre group every week where he has singing, dancing and acting classes, Joseph loves to sing away to Thomas the Tank and Moshi Monsters on the I Pad and Oliver loves to dance around the living room to what ever has a tune. It was wanting to sing a long with songs by reading the lyrics that helped Jak out in his reading when he was in Reception, he wanted to sing in the karaoke so much that he was determined to learn to read the words on the screen.
We go on holiday every year to a holiday park where Jak always enters the Talent contest and every time he sings his favourite song, this year he got through to the park finals of Park Resorts singing ‘Living on a Prayer’, he really enjoys it and is forever singing away to a song that is in the charts, his favourite song at the moment is PSY ‘Gangnam Style’, he is driving me insane with it! he sings it on the way to school, on the way back from school, at the dinner table and in bed, basically whenever he can, he also likes to do the dance moves to it and is forever You Tubing the video to watch it so he can learn the moves.

We was offered to review a childrens Pop CD and as the boys like music i agreed to do the review, we had no idea what sort of Cd we would be receiving but I was sure that whatever the music was they would enjoy listening to it. They was over the moon to discover that the CD was POP Party 10!

One look at the back of the CD and i knew it would be played again and agian as it had quite a few of the boys favourites on it, including ‘Gangnam Style’! It is packed with chart topping smash hits and some well known bands and singers.

Not only is POP Party a Music Cd but it is also has 13 Music videos to watch on the DVD so your child can learn the dance moves to some of their favourite songs like ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Domino’.

And it doesn’t stop there either you will also receive lyric cards so you can sing along to the songs too! Brilliant for those who like a bit of karaoke (you will never sing the wrong words again lol )

20121109-064458.jpgWe had a mad half hour in our house yesterday where we put on the CD and danced and sang away to all of the songs, there wasn’t one song that we didn’t (as a family) not enjoy, There is such a great selection of music to suit all, Oliver my 15 Months old really enjoyed bopping away to ‘Call me Maybe’ and even cried when the song had finished. Jak was dancing to ‘Gangnam Style’ and thanks to the DVD he now knows all the moves really well, which he is teaching his little brothers to do too! Even i found myself singing away to the songs using the lyrics card, we all had lots of fun listening to the CD and thing it will get used lots of times over the christmas holidays as it is packed to the brim with feel good tunes.

It was a big hit with Jak and he gives it a massive thumbs up.

You can buy this CD compilation from Universal Music for £10.99

This CD will make a fabulous stocking filler for christmas 2012, it will keep children, teenagers and adults entertained for hours.

We was sent a copy of the CD to review, all of the words and opinions are of my own.
