Most children love monsters, Disney's Monster Inc. surely reminded us of that. And for the younger ones especially, it's the silly, fuzzy, furry, frisky ones they love the most. And Kiddle Karoo offers a monstrously fun time for children - and parents - on her album Silly Monster House Party.
Kiddle Karoo is the children's entertainment performing name of Lisa Clyde, who puts on shows all around Southern California, from holiday-themed events to eco-encouraging works, all geared towards kids of elementary school age and younger.
The album's lead-off track, "Monster Party" is zippy pop rock invitation, followed by rap-lite "Monstas in the House, while "Monster Boogie" is a take-off on "The Hokey Pokey." There;s running little storyline between songs with dialogue and jokes that will also engage kids and probably elicit giggles, too.
The song "Silly Monsters" is a real-stand out as the tune (and its video) could - and should - get discovered by Disney or Nik with its very-'80s minor key melody and Muppet-ish backing vocals. The chipper, hand-clappy "Kiddle Rock" is another catchy tune, along with "5 Little Monsters," which sort of plays on the kids' favorite "Monkeys Jumping on the Bed," with a dance-happy percusion and guitar breakdown.
A cover of the classic "Swinging on a Star," which dates back 65 years to Bing Crosby singing it in Going My Way and the song winning an Oscar, fits well here through a contemporary pop arrangement. The playful and funky "Kiddle La Kid," recalls Blondie (really, it does!) and "Silly Monsters Had a Party" takes off on "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" in a bopping rendition.
If you're looking for some children's Halloween-time music beyond the usual "Monster Mash" stuff, Silly Monster House Party is a wonderful way to go and you can order the CD or buy the download here at CD Baby. And for more about Kiddle Karro and upcoming shows, check out www.kiddlekaroo.com.

“I don’t know what monsters do for a living - unless they
work at factories making stuffed people dolls - but they
sure seem to be having a blast at the Silly Monster House
Party! The cool songs hip and hop and rap and rock and
will generally have the kiddies dancing and singing along
like rock stars. There’s a nice rock version of ‘Swinging On
A Star’ among the originals. Hey, don’t let those monsters
have all the fun join the party!” John Wood,
