ZingZillas The Album

So unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months I am sure that you have heard about the ZingZillas a show on Cbeebies about a band of primate friends who are based on a tropical island, aimed at pre-schoolers. It is one of Baba and I have to admit (it has grown one me) my favourite TV shows. Mainly due to the music and the fact that something actually happens in every show.

Baba has always loved the music from the band mates, Zak, Tang, Panzee and Drum and he especially loves the music guru DJ Loose, he makes him laugh a lot.  Throughout the show the band find their musical inspiration from special guests on the island, ranging from rock to soul, jazz to samba and big band to orchestra the ZingZillas always manage to get this sound into The Big Zing. This is where they play a song incorporating everything that they have learned in the show. When The Big Zing starts Baba gets up ready to dance.

So when we were offered to review the ZingZillas The Album I couldn’t say no. Even though to be honest I thought that it would be one of these show albums that only has a handful of songs on and they are songs that you have never heard on the show before.

I was wrong, very wrong, and pleasantly surprised.

The album has a whopping 26 tracks on the album, including the bands first single Do you Didgeridoo? which even my mother has been singing along to!

Baba loved it on first hearing and as soon as the first song started he started shouting “Zings” at the CD player. The CD has quickly become the favourite CD for car journeys at the moment. With Baba dancing and Mr L and I singing along.

I think that is the great thing about this album, the words are sensibly and even as an adult you can sing along to it. We have even carried on listening to it after Baba has gone to sleep.

It is very catchy, and Baba loves all the songs, his absolute favourite is number four Happy Day, this leads to lots of shouting and laughing in the back of the car. Both Mr L and I were really impressed with the fact that there is such a range of world music. With music from over 20 countries included on the CD there is no other CD that is going to give that variety to Baba when he is listening to something that he enjoys!

I would say that this CD is a great investment, and not just for pre schoolers any younger child that has an interest in music will like it. It was released on the 4th of October (yesterday) and is available on CD or digital download from all good retailers priced £9.99, which I think is a great price for everything you get.
