‘The Pop Ups’

BABY, ENTERTAINMENT, MUSIC REVIEWS, PARENTING, TODDLER

My head generally feels like it is going to explode when I listen to children’s music. My toddler has a couple CDs that I consider “audio torture.” I smile, take her to the “shows,” and have a wonderful time watching her dance and express herself. The joy on her face is contagious and despite the sounds coming from the stage, I have a fantastic time. Although, being a part of a family is full of situations where one loves something the other does not. We all participates for the other. Yet, experiences are taken to another level of enjoyment when everyone can appreciate the music, activity or event for what it is.

In the category of children’s music there is no band I prefer more than The Pop Ups. The two-piece indie group uses costumes, puppets, and props while performing. The children-filled audience in enthralled with the interaction and the energy. They teach and inspire kids to partake and try new things through their lyrics. I never feel awkward at their shows and the little ones can even get a band shirt or tote before they leave. The Pop Ups are not only my toddlers favorite children’s band, but mine as well. My favorite album is ‘Radio Jungle,’ check it out. The video below includes the whole album.
