Synopsis

Amazon.com
In producing a record of hip-hop music for kids--that would also be agreeable to parents--singer Linda Tillery started with songs that appeal to families, and then filled in the grooves. The result, with such songs as "Juba Dis and Juba Dat," from the time of slavery, and funk and pop classics "Everyday People" and "Brand New Key," mostly hits its mark. If "High Hopes" falls flat, the reggae song "Three Little Birds" soars, as does most of the program from Taj Mahal, Sheila E., Maria Muldaur, Eric Bibb, and the Cultural Heritage Choir, the latter turning in a supremely exciting performance on "Cookie Jar." Parents need not be alarmed at the inclusion of rap, which adheres to its original definition (rhythm and poetry) and never offends. All in all, this should have the kids up dancing, digging, and doing their thing, hippity-hop-style. --Alanna Nash

Hippity Hop
12/14/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hippity Hop is the best childrens cd ever. It really touches my soul. I feel that all ages can get into this music. .With songs like cookie jar, everyday people, funky nursery rhymes, brand new key and others this cd gives hip hop a new meaning. Try this cd and give it your own opinion. Don't take my word for it."

"I loved this CD and my infant son does as well. I think we will be listening to this CD well into his toddler years - it can be sung along to quite easily. I am a huge hip hop fan and I got this because I am finding that my collection is inappropriate for young kids. But this CD did not offend my hip hop sensibilities at all."
So glad my toddler has appropriate FUNK in her life!

"This CD is simply and utterly awesome! My toddler has been bebopping to it for months and when she's old enough to understand the words, she'll also get inspiring messages from "Brand New Key." The girl's solo in the middle of that song is really nice and spreads the word about the world living together as one. "Cookie Jar" is too cute and too funny--an original and creative remake of that kid's song. I still crack up every time I hear it! But most importantly, I love that my daughter is getting a taste of different flavors of music and American culture. The musicians have taken some classics and fitted them with a new sound representative of African-American culture. I'm a white American living in France and so couldn't be more thrilled that my daughter is exposed to children's music from my country other than Barney, Seasame St., etc. I'm waiting for #2--hurry up!"
