Imagination Movers Rock-O-Matic CD/DVD review

You may have seen Disney’s Imagination Movers show on Disney Junior. If you haven’t you should really check it out with your little one.

The Imagination Movers Rock-O-Matic CD/DVD was just released in February.  Imagination Movers are an Emmy winning group geared for family fun.  A group of 4 guys that make getting up and moving fun for kids.

The DVD includes fun clips for kids including The Yuck Yuck Comedy Funny Ha Ha show where the guys take turns sharing kid friendly jokes. Catnip and Catnap (two cat puppets) interject between segments.  Then of course all the fun songs with videos to go along with them.  My son was so intersted in the Animal Dancing song.  The video showed cartoon renderings of each guy in the group.  Lots of bright colors and movement.  He also had fun naming the cartoon animals that came up on the screen.

Before I talk about the CD, I have a question to ask you.  Have your kids every had a kids’ song cd that you kinda hoped might get lost somewhere?  You know, the songs a maybe slightly annoying and your kids want to listen to it on repeat every time you get in the car?  I know I have. It got to the point where I would hide it when we got in the car . Hoping, as the old saying goes, “out of sight our of mind”.  Well thank goodness for the Imagination Movers CD because this CD is NOT one of those annoying CDs.

Imagionation Mover Rock-O-Matic CD has catchy music that sound almost like something you might hear on a main stream radio station (with kid friendly lyrics and content of course).  I’ve actually listened to the whole CD twice and find myself getting into the groove of the songs. The CD includes the song “Dear Old Dad” just for fathers.  Then there is the catchy Rock-O-Matic song itself.

If you’re looking for a fun Kids’ music CD that you can stand to listen to too, this would be a great choice.

Sesame Street Live was so cool and you can still see it in #Pittsburgh on Sunday

Sesame Street Live is in Pittsburgh at the CONSOL Energy Center this weekend.  It’s not too late.  There are still shows at 1 PM and 4:30 PM on Sunday January 15 available.  If you wanna go, save yourself some money and buy the tickets through Pittsburgh Kids Guide and save $3 when you purchase your tickets.

I was able to go to the show tonight (Saturday Jan. 14) for the 5:30 PM show.  We got there early, found parking right across the street and got our seats quickly.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  I had 4 tickets. I took my toddler as well as my sister and her toddler.

“Elmo’s Super Heroes” is about Super Grover losing his “super”.  The fun live show sends a great message about eating right, proper hygiene, getting enough sleep,  and exercise.  Most of everyone’s favorite characters were involved: Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, and more.

We had good seats.  From the minute the show started until it ended the show engaged both my 2 1/2 year old son and my 2 1/2 year old niece.  It’s 90 minutes of singing, dancing, and fun but valuable lessons.  They encouraged audience participation many times throughout the show.  There is a 15 minute intermission at the half way point.  I really didn’t know how our toddlers would do with a 90 minute show in elbow to elbow seats but they were both so into it.  At intermission my son looked at me and said “Again, Again”. I told him we just needed to take a break and we’d be back.  Then after the show was over, he said the same thing.

Here’s a pic of how engaged our toddlers were.  They would hardly sit in their seats.  They were standing and watching, dancing, and jumping.  They really enjoyed themselves.

I think everyone else did too.

I would definitely see the show. It was such a fun experience.  The CONSOL Energy Center is a great venue.  I’ve seen several different events there since it opened.  It’s easy to find in Pittsburgh and lots of parking available.

Tickets prices are $14, $18, $24  then there’s $34 dollars for the Gold Circle and $80 for the Sunny Seats that include a VIP meet and greet with 2 characters before the show.  Again, if you wanna save yourself some money, buy your tickets through Pittsburgh Kids Guide and save $3.

***I was provided 4 free tickets from and in order to complete a review and help spread the word about this great show.  I did not receive any monetary compensation.  Any opinions expressed are my own.***
