ToyBox – Nursery Rhymes

ToyboxWe got sent an album full of nursery rhymes called Toybox which is was created by The Rainbow Collections. With singer Sophie Barker from Zero 7 singing the nursery rhymes. It contains traditional nursery rhymes such as Humpty Dumpty & The Grand Old Duke Of York which has been made into different versions for a slightly different approach to the classics.


What did Oli make the album?

After figuring out where the music was coming from, he was intrigued to what he was hearing. This was the first time he’s been introduced to a music CD (are they not extinct yet?). Mummy had to use the TV because we don’t have a stereo (are they not extinct yet too?) to play it on. His favourite was ten green bottles which are a bonus in our book as it helps with his number learning. He’s still at a phase where clapping along is his thing. He listened and took note of what he was listening too; while we danced, and we did actions.


What did we make of the album?

We enjoyed the alternative approach to what we’ve heard while growing up, as nice as the traditional nursery rhymes are it’s good to hear them in a different style, we didn’t get bored of hearing it over & over again so we happily let Oli listen to them on a repeat.
So much better than listening to cheesy TV theme tunes.
