- Soaring Star Productions, LLC, announced today the launch of their new music CD, "Pocket Snails Letter Adventure & Other Snaily Songs." The new CD, based on the multi-award winning "Pocket Snails Letter Adventure" video, features eleven peppy, original songs as well as a lyric book so young listeners may sing along with their tiny new friends again and again. Among the tracks are those included on the newly released DVD, and some extra tunes -- "We Love the Vowels," "Upper Case, Lower Case," and "I Love the Pocket Snails." Audio bloopers make for a laugh-out-loud ending to a delightful CD.
"The CD's songs are designed to appeal to little ears with bouncy, happy music and positive themes that are sung and presented by three loveable snails, Gordon, Dale and Buttons; the stars of the Pocket Snails series," said Kate Beale, producer of the videos. "We're proud to release this CD that offers a fun selection of educational songs featuring the Pocket Snails' own distinctive style."
In support of their multimedia release, Soaring Star is running a nationwide "Super Snaily Sweepstakes." "Parents have an opportunity to win several prizes in our sweepstakes, designed to introduce their little ones to our delightful Pocket Snails' multimedia series," added Kate Beale.
The sweepstakes' grand prize is a Sony DVD Player, a "Pocket Snails Letter Adventure" DVD and "Pocket Snails Letter Adventures & Other Snaily Songs" CD. No purchase is necessary to enter. The sweepstakes runs until May 15, 2005. Entrants need to be 18 or older. View complete contest rules and the entry form at http://www.pocketsnails.com/sweepstakes.html.
In "Pocket Snails Letter Adventure," the video that inspired the CD, young viewers meet the Pocket Snails, a trio of playful characters designed to encourage children's imagination. The pocket in the series belongs to young Jake, a boy learning about the world around him with the help of the snails that live inÂ that's rightÂ his pocket! Together, they embark on magical adventures in learning, engaging young viewers with humorous storylines; toe-tapping music and sing-along songs; and colorful visuals--creating "a soaring start for little mindsÂ."
Garnering 11 national awards, "Letter Adventure" is now available on a newly released DVD version, which includes bonus interactive activities, letter games, a music player featuring the Pocket Snails theme song and other fun songs from the program, and "Meet the Snails." Future titles in the Pocket Snails series will be released later in the year and include Phonics, Shapes & Colors and Numbers.
