The Movers - Imagination Movers

Since my daughter first started watching The Disney Channel as a toddler, she has LOVED watching the Imagination Movers.  They sing.  They dance.  They play instruments.  They solve problems.  As their motto says, they ““Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!”  Grace loved the show.  I actually liked it too.  However, at some point we stopped seeing the Imagination Movers on The Disney Channel schedule.  We missed seeing the Movers’ solve their “idea emergencies”.  So, when Disney launched it’s new  24 hour a day Disney Junior Channel with the Imagination Movers in the line up – we were overjoyed!

Now, let me tell you why I like the Movers – Rich, Scott, Dave, and Smitty…. These four dads began meeting together after their children when to bed, writing songs and brainstorming about a children’s television show.  They started out performing in their hometown of New Orleans and now their reach is worldwide.   Movers’ songs are inspired by their kids at home (Rich has five children; Dave and Scott each have two.) Did you know Smitty’s day job used to be fire fighter and first responder?  Cool.  Right? In 2009, the Imagination Movers won a Daytime Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for outstanding original song in the children’s show/animation category. For more about the Movers, go HERE for a complete bio.  It is very interesting.

As you can see, I am a fan!  That is why when I was contacted asking my interest in reviewing and hosting a giveaway for the Imagination Movers CD/DVD “Rock- O- Matic” as well as get the word out about their live tour– I could not respond with a wholehearted YES! quick enough.

Imagination Movers CD/DVD

Next up for the Movers: Razor + Tie is releasing a brand-new Movers’ CD/DVD, titled Rock-O-Matic, — and new Disney Junior episodes will debut soon — as the band prepares to hit the road for a massive 2012 North American concert tour. Says Collins (Rich):  “Our goal is to make many kids’ first concert experience also one of their parents’ most memorable experiences. We hope everyone leaves needing a nap!”

I received the CD/DVD package in the mail and my daughter went CRAZY!  Grace is 5 years old and started Kindergarten this year.  So, I want you to know, the Movers’ are not just for your toddlers and pre-schoolers.  My kidnergartener watches the Imagination Movers, every morning, as your routine, before getting dressed for school.

Here is what the Imagination Movers website says about their new release, ROCK-O-MATIC:

Rock-O-Matic’ features the band’s most irresistible songs to date, including the anthemic title track — reminiscent of Queen’s “We Will Rock You” — as well as the dancehall party groove “Everybody Sing” and “Dear Old Dad,” a ska-inspired ode to fathers everywhere. The DVD features live-action and animated music videos as well as skits that recall old-school Movers comedy heroes like Monty Python and the Monkees as well as the type of high-energy hijinks the Movers are famous for on their own hit television series.

The CD is full of new songs which are also found on the DVD.  Also, this DVD is not just episodes of the Imagination Movers, as you would see them on Disney Junior.  It is all new skits, live action and animation, and songs – of course.  It’s the Movers’ in a new light.  Once my daughter realized it wasn’t the Movers’ just hanging out in their Warehouse, she really liked it.  I really can’t tell you how often we either listen to the CD, or actually watch the DVD on our way to school.   That is HIGH PRAISE for a 5 year old.  I enjoyed it all as well.  The Movers' a giveaway

The Tour is in progress!  Do not miss out on your tickets!  HERE is the link to the LIVE CONCERT TOUR DATES!!!  They are coming to our area of the Midwest and I hope to get tickets for us!
