Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad were asked to review the Jungle Gym Jam CD. Our review and #giveaway are below and we are honored to work with Jason Didner. We received a copy of the CD in order to offer our honest opinion.
Jason Didner, host of the Cool Rockin’ Daddy Video Show, and founder of the kiddie band, Jungle Gym Jam, is releasing the band’s first official album. Together with his wife Amy, Jason Didner created the tunes and wholesome lyrics appropriate for the younger set.
We loved the message inherit in each of the songs: kindness, friendship, learning and most importantly for young ones…imagination. The songs are upbeat, fast paced and immediately bring to mind pictures of animals and inanimate objects having a great time.
Even though I have a teenage daughter, I found myself sitting in my SUV giggling at the lyrics and enjoying the fast paced tempo. My personal fave, track 3, FIVE SEA LIONS. Living and raising my daughter in Florida, we often visit the local amusement parks and the sea lions are always a hit. So that particular animal holds a sweet spot in my heart.
To get to the heart of the song and something of interest to parents…it helps your child have a great time while learning. Counting, sharing, anti-bullying and exercise are all messages that your children will hear as they repeat the songs over and over. And trust me, they’ll want to listen to this CD over and over; it’s catchy.
Jason, together with his bandmates, Casey McCleary (guitar), Judy Helbig (bass), Meg Beattie (guitar) and Ross Kantor (drums) have strong melodic voices and really seem to enjoy being together. Not everyone that’s musically gifted has a passion for song; it’s obvious this group does. And I fully appreciate anything that can remind my kid to “put down the video games” and head outside!
