Hi-5 Happy House Review

The latest release from Hi-5 has hit the shelves for January, and thanks to my friends at Roadshow I have THREE copies to give away to SquiggleMum readers. The album is full of boppy songs, bright colours, great costumes and lots of dancing.  The title track, Happy House makes for a catchy opening, and my kids have been singing this one around the house.

My favourite track though is Backyard Adventurers. We do a fair bit of backyard adventuring here at our house!  I appreciate songs that encourage kids to get outside. It would be great to see this with footage of kids (or the Hi-5 Team) actually in a backyard and out of the studio!  I’m still not fussed on a lot of the dialogue. I’d love to see the Hi-5 team move to more natural sounding language, and speak “to” the children rather than “at” them.  Still, the album is enjoyable, and my own kids have had fun singing and dancing along with the colourful gang.

The Squiggle Report:

Like - Happy House, Backyard Adventurers, the girls’ shoes!!
