MeeWee – Hip Hop for Tots

about_01MeeWee is fun, exciting, and uplifting Hip-Hop music for elementary school age children. Through the years, nearly all Hip-Hop music and culture has been designed for adolescents and adults. These fans now have children who love the lively and energetic songs that they hear; unfortunately, most of the lyrical content isn’t quite appropriate. Well, MeeWee solves that! With songs like “I Need A Hug”, “Us Bus”, and “I Can Be Anything”, Hip-Hop fans who are six, seven, and eight years old have cause to celebrate. So do their parents, as they get their children ready to rap and dance to the beats and rhymes of MeeWee.” – MeeWee.com

The Reviews

 

She Scribes – The songs are a lot of fun and some of them have some really important messages. One song called “I can be anything” talks about how you have to work hard, do your best and believe in yourself and you can be just about anything you want to be. The song really provides a very positive message about self esteem and belief in yourself.

The “Mee Wee Chant” is really FUNKY! You could actually dance to it. It’s a really fun song. In fact a lot of the songs have a hip hop feel to them like “Jumping Jacks” and “Hip Hop-o-Potamus”. continue…

Riding With No Hands The MeeWee characters are great! Each one has their own unique style and positive message. Marsy’s favorite is Jenny Guitara, far left on the album cover, who spends many hours each day practicing her flamenco guitar in her garage. I’m not sure if it’s her guitar or her pretty voice, but there’s definitely something there that she identifies with.

These songs reach kids in an extraordinary way! Teachers have been using them to inspire their students, and now you can do the same with your kids. Listen to some sample tracks on meewee.com, read the lyrics, and buy the album on Amazon.comand iTunes. continue…

Tara’s View of the World I’ve played the album several times for my kids in the past week and they love it. My sons have come up with some fascinating dance moves and Olivia thinks that any song is perfect for a little ballet. They have even started to try and sing along which just proves they like the music. And just to make it even better the music was enjoyable for me too! Anything that the kids love and that doesn’t drive me crazy is PERFECT for our house.

It is important to me that the music my kids listen to fills their heads with GOOD stuff, not crap. I am very impressed with MeeWee. You can download the lyrics to their songs HERE and you will find music that you will be happy your kids are singing along to and nothing that will embarrass you when they are singing it at school. continue…

Reviewza-Palooza– Mee Wee is designed as “Hop music for elementary school age children”. I’ll admit I am a fan of hip hop and my itunes library is full of songs that I don’t let my kids listen to. Even when listening to the radio I often find myself turning the channel because the lyrics are not appropriate for my 5 and 2 year old.

Mee Wee’s songs are catchy and my kiddos caught on really quick. My 5 year old can sing almost all the songs and requested them over and over. Especially “Hip-Hop-O-Potamus”. I found the songs to be a refreshing change from the same old kids tunes that we have heard over and over again and much more age appropriate then the songs on the radio today. The kids also had a blast dancing to the music. continue…

Mom of 2 Boys, Wife of 1As a mom, our music choices are somewhat limited when our little ones are around. I’m tired of singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider, the ABCs, and I Love You from Barney. My alternative is listening to the radio with James, but for some reason he picks up every not-kid-friendly lyric in every song. So, I’m stuck with all the repetitive children songs we all know and “love”.

Well, thanks to Mom Fuse giving me the opportunity to review MeeWee that isn’t the case anymore! Daniel Klein and Perry Landesberg, co-founders of MeeWee, developed kid friendly Hip-Hop music featuring lyrics and characters that are positive and fun! You can meet the characters by clicking here. My favorite is Jabari Jones and James likes Spinz, the DJ. The music is very catchy and James keeps telling me to stop singing and dancing, but I know he loves it because he asks me to turn it on every time we get in the car. continue…

Pink Family Reviews– My girls love music so they were excited to listen to MeeWee music. I first downloaded it at home and the girls danced around me as we checked out each song. The songs have a great beat and are great to dance to. I love that the lyrics are so positive and I don’t have to worry about my kids hearing anything inappropriate.

I had to put the songs on a cd and we listen to them all the time in the car. We even “car dance” (something I invented when we want to dance to songs in the care) to most of the songs. The girls like me to turn on MeeWee at home and they dance around. I even join them sometimes. They love it!! continue…

The Pink Chandelier – Mo enjoyed most of the songs. However at one point he did get bored. Telling me that “all the music sounds the same.” I can’t argue with his critique because it does. Most of the soundtrack does sound similar using rap, and hip hop themes because that was the point of the developers – to create “fun, exciting, and uplifting Hip-Hop music for elementary school age children.” The songs themselves are great and do provide a positive and uplifting theme. I think that my son probably got bored with the CD because he’s grown used to listening to my playlists which contain music that run across the musical spectrum from salsa, rock, and R&B. I will certainly be adding these songs to his playlist that includes other children artists like Dan Zane. continue…

The Divine Miss Mommy – How about a little old school rap meets tot rock? Sound good? You better believe it does! The sounds of Mee Wee remind me a little of my high school school days gone by but with a kiddie twist. Nothing keeps kids entertained longer on a road trip than some solid, quality entertainment. That is what you get with MeeWee Kid’s Hip Hop.

Theses are some catchy tunes. In fact, I was in Target the other day and I suddenly found myself singing “I Can Be Anything.” And, I was doing it out loud. I had to look around to make certain that no one saw this crazy woman singing to herself. I just really love that these songs are filled with optimism, cooperation and other values that I love for my children to have. There are even cool characters!
