Imagination Movers Rock-O-Matic CD/DVD Review

I received the Imagination Movers Rock-O-Matic CD/DVD combo to review for free. I had heard of the Imagination Movers though my kids, but really never heard their music until now. I loved the CD and thought the music was great! I especially love the songs, Rain Rain, Blast Off, Dear Old Dad, and Buckle me In. The Buckle Me In song is especially great because it teaches the importance of buckling up in a vehicle so you stay safe. Animal Dancing is also fun and a great one to play for a zoo trip or animal themed party. Blast Off is great for a space themed party too. The only song I didn't care for was Watermelon Meow Meow. Most of their songs are upbeat and great to dance and move to. The DVD was great for the younger set of kids with its goofy antics, silly jokes and high energy performances. I have never seen their show on Playhouse Disney, but this was cute and I have to admit made me chuckle a little.

Imagination Movers started in 2003 in New Orleans where 4 friends Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott Smitty Smith started writing kids songs and brainstorming ideas for a children's television show after their own children were put to bed at night. Two years later, they were known throughout their musical city, attracting and audience with both parents and kids alike. They have catchy eclectic pop songs about things kids and parents can relate to. They had created a sensation and lines to the Movers shows stretched down blocks. Not even the Imagination Movers could have fully imagined the band's current break-through success. Recently completing production on the third season of their hit music-and-comedy series for Playhouse Disney, the Movers have sold more than 200,000 CDs and DVDs to date.
