A few months ago I was introduced to the award-winning children’s group Splash ‘N Boots and I recently learned that the duo has been nominated for Children’s Group of the Year in the 2012 SiriusXM Indie Awards! My boys and I got the chance to see Splash ‘N Boots live in Regina on their Roll Play Live Animal Party tour and I can’t think of a children’s group that is more deserving of this great award. I got the chance to ask Splash ‘N Boots a few questions recently and so without further ado, here are five fun facts you always wanted to know about Splash ‘N Boots!
- What are your absolute favourite foods?
- Splash: Pizza!
- Boots: Pineapple!
- Our first show ever was in the rain….Splash was jumping in puddles and
Boots was wearing big rubber Boots!!
- Splash: A monkey!
- Boots: An otter!
- Splash: Super intelligence!
- Boots: Super strength!
- We love that it is chosen by fans, and that it recognizes independent
Musicians in Canada!
If you love Splash ‘N Boots as much as I do, you can vote for the duo by visiting indes.ca. And to celebrate their nomination, Splash ‘N Boots is very generously offering one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader a copy of their fabulous CD Back In Yellow in a special flash giveaway! Voting ends March 23, so you only have five days to help support this fun-loving pair. So head over to vote today and then enter to win your very own Splash ‘N Boots CD!
Recently I got the chance to attend the fabulous Roll Play Live Animal Party show featuring children’s musicians Splash ‘N Boots. My boys and I were so excited to be a part of the fun and let me just say, it was absolutely amazing!
Roll Play Live Animal Party was definitely not your ordinary live kids’ show! It started with special face painting so that when the black lights were used during the show, the kids would look like animals! And when we got to our seats, the first request Splash ‘N Boots had was for us to jump over the seats in front of us and move up even closer. Far be it for us to argue with the stars of the show!
Compared to other children’s shows, all I can say is Splash ‘N Boots had more! More interaction, more laughter, more improv, more dancing…for some of the younger audience members all the excitement was a little too overwhelming but both of my boys had a great time! And I enjoyed the show just as much as they did. Whether we were laughing at Splash’s attempts to make the sound of an octopus or trying to catch the ribbons and bubbles that flew out over the audience periodically, the fun never stopped with Splash ‘N Boots and their Roll Play friends!
Splash ‘N Boots met with their fans and signed autographs after the show and I was hoping to get the chance to meet them, but all the singing, dancing and playing completely exhausted my two sons and I knew there was no way they could stay on their feet much longer. How awesome is it that I could take my boys to a fun children’s show for both entertainment and exercise?
When we got home, Benjamin immediately wanted to “watch Treehouse,” his way of saying that he wanted to see the show again. He got so upset when I told him that the show wasn’t on Treehouse, but fortunately I remembered that we had a copy of the brand new Splash ‘N Boots DVD, Act 2! He was immediately pacified and sat down with his older brother to enjoy even more Splash ‘N Boots.
The DVD is a fun mix of skits, songs and stories that my boys absolutely loved. With funny costumes, silly acting and, of course, music, Act 2 kept my boys entertained from beginning to end and fully satisfied Benjamin’s desire to see “Pash Boots” again. If you have Splash ‘N Boots fans in the house, this DVD is a great purchase.
I highly recommend checking out Splash ‘N Boots Roll Play Animal Party, though if you have a child that is sensitive about loud music and flashing lights you may want to sit back from the stage a little. And as if all the fun of the show wasn’t reason enough to check it out, select shows will even be recorded for a future show on Treehouse TV! So check the website for a show near you and get ready for fun and games with Splash ‘N Boots!
Boys and girls, get ready to move because Splash ‘N Boots are coming to a city near you!
