This is a sneak peek review of the children’s DVD and CD set called Music, Music Everywhere!, which features episodes of Barney, Thomas & Friends, and Bob the Builder. This product comes from Lionsgate and HiT Entertainment and is due to be released July 20, 2010. I was provided a review copy of the Music, Music Everywhere! set. But I was under no obligation to recommend it. My observations are my own.
Synopsis of the Children’s DVD and CD Set Music, Music Everywhere!
Musical themes abound with the video. First, Barney and his friends star in Play Piano With Me, in which the cast sings, dances, and even plays some various piano tunes plus learns some basic things about this instrument while in the caboose and the park. Roley the Roller tries to help Bob the Builder and the crew remodel an Italian deli in Roley’s Important Job, but he’s not needed there, so he comes through in the end musically. In Tuneful Toots, the Thomas & Friends feature, Rusty gets a kick out of tooting his horns even as most of the other engines protest, yet his noises get him out of a jam with a band trying to make a concert. The fourth animated short, Arnold‘s Drum, is from Kipper, where the dog and his buddy Tiger have a picnic with Arnold the Pig and his mother, but Arnold’s drumming gets on the group’s nerves until they are inspired to create their own tunes.
The bonus feature in this children’s DVD comes from Angelina Ballerina. In the mice’s animated short, Angelina’s Musical Day, she and the other students at the musical academy ready for a production of Peter and the Wolf, and learn that this art form is a great communicator. The accompanying CD contains five songs, including two from the Barney episode as well as the catchy Thomas & Friends theme song.

For children, what a way to learn some simple songs and get into a positive mood – which is why I strongly recommend this product. This children’s DVD plays in both English and Spanish.
