Disney Junior's Genevieve Goings To Release First Solo Album

Genevieve  Goings is launching a new album and we here at The DVC Mom's Traveler were sent the single of "My Telephone Number is" to review.  As an influencer with Entertainment New Media Network we'll recieve compensation for this post but as always thoughts and opinions are always our own.  Self described "fun parent" Erik got to work to find out just what the number is.

Genevieve has been entertaining and teaching children on the Disney Junior Network for the past ten years. She started as the upbeat, perky and fun loving conductor on the Disney show; “Choo Choo Soul with Genevieve” singing wonderful remakes of classic Disney songs while also teaching toddlers those important fundamentals that they will need as they take their first steps into the world. She has also voice many of the ‘learning bumps’ that appear between shows and during commercials, to continue the positive learning experience for young kids and their parents.

Taking her next big step, Genevieve is ready to put out her first solo album “Do You Know?”  with the same sense of positive learning and upbeat musical songs that will have both children (ages 2-7) and their parents dancing, singing, and learning together. The first song, off her new album, “My Telephone Number Is”  is a bright and upbeat track that helps young children learn their telephone number by placing their phone numbers in a fun musical beat that anyone can do. “My Telephone Number Is”  is currently being offered on iTunes and you can watch the video right here!

For parents and children to get a taste of Genevieve’s positive style and obvious passion to teach and entertain children.  Other songs on Genevieve’s first album, “Do You Know?”, will focus on many of those important things that preschoolers will need to know as they go out into the great, big beautiful world like telling time and knowing their phone numbers but will also showcase some of the more personal aspects of growing up like potty training and one’s hygiene. This album will be a mix of great songs and fun videos to delight children during this important stage of learning in a way that talk’s to them without talking down to them.

GG2With pre-orders for this first, inspiring album coming in early May (with the release date scheduled for June 3rd 2014), several great bonuses have been created to go along with the launch. Genevieve has a great app in the iTunes store that showcases many of her songs for toddlers and preschoolers called “Sing with Genevieve”. This free app can be downloaded from the iTunes store here.

Another wonderful bonus is that parents who pre-order this positive and enjoyable album, “Do You Know?” will also receive the second track called “Gotta Do My Business” instantly and free.

Mom's Night Out: Have You Had One Lately?

I'm so excited to share with you one of the cutest movies I have heard of in a long time, it's called Moms' Night Out.  Right off the bat it screamed to me "grab your girls and head to the theater!"  This fun romp is all about Allyson and her friends wanting nothing more than a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation.

Haha!  But I'm a mom - and most of you are moms too.  We know that it's never quite as easy as that.  In order to enjoy a little grown up girl time they must leave their husbands in charge and watching the kids for a few hours!   What could go wrong?

That just may be a dangerous question.  Check out this fun filled trailer - 

How FUN is that!?!?  Is that not totally would happen in your house?  I know - right?

Moms' Night Out Opens Friday, May 9th in theaters everywhere!  
Just in time for Mother's Day

Sing Into Spring Givaway With Walt Disney Records

It's been a long and frozen winter in Illinois this year, but we're finally starting to thaw out up here.  Even my tulips have begun to push through the ground in search of a sunny spring day.  I was delighted when a  complimentary collection of CDs arrived on my doorstep this week to celebrate the season with some fantastic music.

Sing Into Spring
The real winner of this collection in my daughter's opinion was the sound track to the highest grossing animated film of all time.  Disney's Frozen. We started out with the tunes of "Do You Want To Build A Snowman," and listened through to the Academy Award Winning "Let It Go" genuinely enjoying the music.  Other CDs that arrived with the set included great dance tunes from the Disney Channel Play It Loud, and fun stuff by Austin & Ally, and some super fun tracks that will bring the summer heat from Teen Beach Movie.

Along with the delightful package that I received from Walt Disney Records, as part of Entertainment New Media Network Walt Disney Records is sending some seasonal fun to two lucky readers of mine as well!  I've got CDs to giveaway (one set geared towards tweens, and one set geared towards preschoolers) so that you can pump up the volume and welcome back the warmer weather with some hot tunes.

The tween music set includes CDs of fantastic music from Frozen, Austin & Ally: Turn It Up, Disney Channel's Play it Loud, and the Disney Channel summer hit Teen Beach Movie! Use this first entry form to enter to win the tween music collection.
