The Splash 'n Boots Show Act 2 - Review & Giveaway

This DVD is subtitled, "A Whole Lot of Awesome," and according to my Little Boo, that is spot on right.  Splash n' Boots are a Canadian husband and wife duo, who began performing together in 2003, as students at Queen's University. Since then they have recorded 5 albums, produced 2 DVDs, toured across the nation as well as internationally, and been voted Canadian Children's Music Group of the Year! Whew! Currently they are being featured on Treehouse TV (4 year contract!), and are appearing in 4 half-hour Roll Play episodes, recorded from their recent tour.

The DVD plays like a variety show for the kids, and so it really keeps them interested. Moving from funny skits, like "Hide and Seek," to music videos, interspersed with appearances by children playing "Let's Pretend" and performing their stretches, this is an engaging 50 minutes of play.

Little Boo was giggling and singing along. He loved the catchy music and just couldn't keep still. I like that! This DVD does come with a warning label - "May cause laughing and spontaneous dancing" - and that is exactly what we found.  And, as a grown-up (or so I'm told), I found this entertaining as well. It wasn't saccharin. It didn't talk down to kids or feel fake. These two really do seem to be having a great time. Their enthusiasm is infectious.

The extra features on the disc include the option to watch just the music videos, or to watch a series of their "Kitchen Jams." These are songs that the duo write in response to themes sent in by their fans. They record them live in their own kitchen. Very unique!

Splash 'N Boots have their 6th album coming out soon. They are crowd sourcing the content for this one and have been soliciting suggestions from their fans. The song titles have been chosen, but they are still looking for the album title. You can head on over to their Facebook page for more info. The suggestions will be collected until they compile the list on February 13. And be sure to visit them online to check out their videos and tour dates. You can also visit their online store to purchase your own DVDs, CDs, and special Splash 'N Boots merchandise.

Woo Hoo! Would you like to win your own copy of The Splash 'N Boots Show Act 2?? Well, I think we can arrange that. One lucky Raising My Boys reader will receive their very own copy to love and enjoy. Get dancing!!

This contest is open to Canadian residents only, and will run through midnight (EST) February 25th. Please enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!
