The Backyardigans Deep Sea Adventure Tour {with a giveaway!}

Your backyards friends, the Backyardigans are coming to Montreal next week on April 12th and Ask Mama MOE and Koba Entertainment want you to go!

Before my first little one was born, I was given Backyardigan stuffies and a CD as a baby shower gift. I was clueless! I didn’t know the show, the music or the characters.

Shortly after my son turned two, I pulled out the gifts and we listened to the music, and wouldn’t you know, he loved it. And I am going to be honest with you, I didn’t mind the music either! I actually thought how clever they were because a lot of the songs have a feel of similar great songs from different genres and decades, while including words that kids can understand and sing along to.

Now my twins are in the stage of loving the stuffies and singing along to the very catchy tunes of the Backyardigans gang. And the show is really popular in our home too. The Backyardigans is the top-rated preschool television program and it airs on Treehouse TV in Canada and Nick Jr. in the US.

Two years ago the Backyardigans tour came to Montreal and I took my oldest. At four years old, it was a great show for him. He loved it! And now, the Backyardigans are back with a whole new story and my twins will have the same fun time as their big brother.

Pablo, Tyrone, Tasha, Uniqua and Austin are the characters that take children from their backyard to faraway places filled with adventure, and this time their adventure takes place under the sea.

“Who explores a coral reef, discovers a seaweed farm, and joins the jellyfish ballet – all before snack time? The Backyardigans! Dive into the action as these five friends as they explore clues, discover underwater magic, and match wits with an egocentric, seaweed farming octopus and a pair of playful dolphins.”

What to expect with The Backyardigans Live On Stage

Koba Entertainment’s artistic director Patti Caplette uses her original creative direction and Broadway style choreography to create a truly unique production. Also among the live theatrical’s all-star creative team are The Backyardigans’ television series composer Evan Lurie, who contributes an energetic array of songs, and projection designer, Beth Kates, who will create a magical and exciting world using innovative 3D video design.

I think this is a perfect show for children at the preschool or Kindergarten age. Even though my oldest still will sit down to watch the television show, I don’t know if he would love the live performance like my twins will.
