Friday Video: Pigloo – Papa Pingouin

Cute song about a penguin who is tired of the same old scenery of the Antarctic and longs to be a bird who can fly anywhere. Lyrics are past the break in French and English.

Got my I-CY

I finally saw the bopping, dancing penguins at Target the other day and I just had to pick one up. So far he seems to enjoy our various and eclectic tastes in music though I’m worried it may develop a complex when it creates its mood music. Here are more pictures of I-CY in its plastic penguin glory. I’m sure I’ll have a video soon, possibly using a very particular penguin song. Actually…!  I’ve uploaded a video now. Check it out after the break.

Chilly Willy Music

I’ve been noticing in my referrer and search term logs that some people are getting to this blog by searching for “chilly willy penguin theme song” or something fairly similar. I believe I mentioned Chilly Willy in National Penguin Awareness Day so I looked around the vast Interweb. Hopefully I found what they’re looking for! Actually I found several versions of the Chilly Willy theme song. Just look behind the cut as there’s quite a few plus the lyrics.

Penguin Speakers

At first glance, these penguin-shaped speakers are kind of creepy looking but that’s half of what grabbed my interest. Their eyes move and go crazy to the rhythm of the music. Pretty cool to me although I’m still holding out for I-CY.

Your Personal Penguin

Tonight I picked up Your Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton. After reading about this book and hearing the song at Workman Publishing’s web site, I just knew I had to get this book. The story is more like a short song where this little penguin wants to befriend this hippopotamus, telling it of all of the things they’d do together. It’s very a cute story and the very last page will make you go, “Aww…” Below I have linked the song that goes with the book which is sung by Davy Jones of The Monkees. After the cut, there’s a behind-the-scenes video of Davy singing the song. Totally amazing. Davy Jones was a perfect fit for this song. I absolutely recommend this book for any small child. My daughter has requested that I read/sing this to her every night.

The song can be downloaded from Workman Publishing’s site in mp3 format.

Coming Soon: I-CY

What’s black and white and cool all over? I-CY, the performing penguin! This waddling wonder loves to dive into music: rock, punk, rap, hip-hop, dance, techno, and more. Watch I-CY flap its flippers to your tunes, and make it happy with lots of music and interaction! I-CY communicates moods through musical riffs, movement and tons of blinking light patterns! It even squawks to let you know when it needs more attention! I-CY loves to move and groove to your music, but watch out – flick its tail, and it won’t be happy! Plug in and chill out with I-CY!

I will need one of these when they come out in March. I got my wife an I-Dog for Christmas and since that was pretty cute, this should be utterly adorable.
