Christmas is fast becoming a huge deal in our household. Now we have kids, our daughter due to turn 3 just after the festive season, Christmas time is becoming just as magical as it was when I was a child. Being a parent really does make you appreciate it all so much more and we’re now trying to make this time as special as possible for our two. One huge thing which makes me feel all Christmassy is the music and sing-alongs!
A few weeks ago I was asked if I’d like to be sent a copy of Mr Tumble’s Christmas Party album to listen to with the kids. Both of my kids absolutely love Justin Fletcher in all of the roles he plays on CBeebie’s but Something Special Mr Tumble is definitely their favourite. This year he’s released his very own album with 20 classic Christmas songs which means that he can now be involved in the our family’s run up to Christmas with his singalongs!
The twenty tracks he’s recorded are;
1 Here Comes Santa Claus
2 Do You Want to Build a Snowman
3 Santa Claus is Coming to Town
4 Winter Wonderland
5 Frosty the Snowman
6 It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
7 A Sleigh Ride Together with You
8 White Christmas
9 I Can’t Wait for Christmas
10 Silent Night
11 Let it Snow
12 Jingle Bells
13 All I want for Christmas Is My 2 Front Teeth
14 Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
15 Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
16 12 Days of Christmas
17 Little Drummer Boy
18 The Xmas Song
19 Have Yourself a Merry Little Xmas Time
20 We Wish You a Merry Xmas
The kids absolutely love it- granted Billy is only 9 months but he has a boogie along and loves watching his sister dance. Violet loves every single song, with the second being her favourite as it’s a song from her favourite film, Disney’s Frozen. As soon as she realised that it was Mr Tumble singing the songs her face lit up and the dancing became much more ‘jumpy jumpy’ as she calls it! Especially when she noticed that Lord Tumble, Aunt Polly and Grandad Tumble all join in too.
This album is the perfect for any young family either in the run up to Christmas to get you all feeling festive like us or as a stocking filler to make Christmas Day itself a fantastic party- especially to help you work off all of that dinner! There’s a song for everyone with an added Mr Tumble twist!
You can find the album for yourself on Amazon – your little one’s will love you for it!
