Jake and the Neverland Pirates CD Party

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Join Jake, Izzy, Cubby and Skully for fun adventures in Never Land! The new CD, Jake and The Never Land Pirates: Yo Ho Matey! is available October 15th on Walt Disney Records.

To gear up excitement for the upcoming CD release, I held a Jake and the Neverland Pirates CD listening party in my home. My kids are too old for Jake and the Neverland Pirates but I have several nieces and nephews in the right age range. I had them over for lunch and games while we listened to the CD.

Of the handful of children who attended, only one had never heard of Jake and the Neverland Pirates before. I wasn't real familiar with the show myself, so I did some research and schooled myself on the popular Disney Jr. show before the party. Compared to some preschool programs, Jake and the Neverland Pirates is one I can tolerate and don't mind watching with youngsters. The same goes for the new CD.


Jake and the Neverland Pirates: Yo Ho Matey! isn't a shipwrecked mess. The tunes gets kids up and moving, and they didn't grate on my nerves. My nieces and nephews were shaking a leg and giving it their best pirate dance moves while they listened to the CD. Shipwreck Shuffle and Hot Lava seemed to be the two most popular tunes. I'd say this is a fun CD for kids to listen to whether they're familiar with the show or not.
