5.0 out of 5 stars Funky and brilliant!, 21 Jan 2012
This review is from: Times Tables (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second 'times tables' CD we've had for our girls now and I have to admit, they are all very samey - music more suited to preschoolers than Key Stage 1, and very repetitive - if listening to it in the car, by the time you get to the 12 x table you want to throw it out of the window!

This one, on the other hand, is fun! It starts with the times table being 'read' in a normal voice, then follows on with it put to music. Next is it being sung but with gaps so your child can provide the answer, and then the last (and best) bit, sung again with gaps but randomly rather than starting at 1 and working upwards - so your child can really test their knowledge.

Best bit of all is the lively and entertaining soundtrack. This is times tables funked up - the 2 x times table is blues (ish), 'Chase the blues with the twos!' the 5 x table is 'jive with the fives!' - we thought the music was great! Even had us doing a bit of air guitar to the 2 x table - and as a result the kids thought this was fun rather than a chore.

In my opinion this is probably the best of the bunch!!
