Product Description


Fantastic! Different enough from all the other nursery rhyme cds on our shelf to capture my children's attention, but with familiar songs that we were all soon singing along to it. Highly recommended! netmums.com --netmums.com

I'm working on a new radio services from Cbeebies at the moment and came across the Big Songs For Little Ones CD on the internet. I love it! We've put it on Cbeebies Radio playlist! Cbeebies Radio --cbeebies radio

The hip and cool new album from Amanda s Action Kids provides a welcome change to the usual nursery rhyme cds. It s great for the car and home and great for parties. Families West Magazine --Families West

CD Description

Funky arrangements of favourite children's songs. Styles include r&b, dance, reggae, ska, classical. This album uses top class vocals from a range of UK artists, and is made with the highest production values. This album is loved by kids and their parents - not the usual sugar coated stuff. Fantastically educational, great for parties, makes a great present, and is great for the car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hallelujah! 12 Mar 2007
By pui888
Format:Audio CD
Hallelujah. I have finally found an album for children with the same level of artistry, musicianship and production values that you get from the best of the best-selling albums.

I can't quite believe that I am writing this about a children's nursery rhyme album.

I love music, and I introduce my children to all sorts of varied stuff. Most stuff they take to. Some stuff is a little beyond them right now but I live in hope. However, with this album there's no question. They love it and I love that they love it.

The vocals are fantastic. The musical arrangements are ingenious. There is no hint of sugar-coated mediocrity, it's obvious that each track has been lovingly crafted.

If you are into your music, and you have kids, or know someone that has kids - then you have to have this album in your collection.

It is by far the best children's album I have ever listened to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grown up music for Kids! 27 Nov 2006
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
At last, a CD for your toddler that doesn't set adult teeth on edge. Adored by my sons and much-requested. Amanda has a truly imaginative approach to childrens' classics. Excellent stuff, if you like Morcheeba, Everything but the Girl, Massive Attack or any sort of reggae, R n'B, funk or dance. Really good. Order some now, Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ingenious and cool 23 Jan 2007
By Timeman
Format:Audio CD
The music on this CD is nothing short of ingenious. Not only do the kids love dancing around to the music but I found myself tapping my feet too. The music is cleverly produced to make the music fun to listen to whether you're a toddler or an adult. Very clever and very cool! Gets my 5 star vote.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd copy - couldn't live without it! 9 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Have just bought our second copy having misplaced the first one and decided I couldn't live without it. If my 14 month old gets at all niggly all I have to do is stick this on and she's dancing happily away, 'singing' along. It's a really creative approach to some old songs plus some new ones too. The only CD we have that I don't feel the need to skip tracks or limit it's use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets the whole family going 2 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have three girls starting at 2 years and going to 10 and it's hard for me to find something that everyone likes. This album has solved all my problems as it gets the whole family going in the morning. It's our wake up and lets go to school album. No more fighting or funny faces from my oldest because I am playing kids songs for my youngest. We all agree this is the best kids album ever.

Grown ups can dig it too. well funky. I recommend it for every household
