Tessa never really had a first word. Nothing stood out, and so much of it was mumbled and unclear. But if you made me nail down something as the first thing she said repeatedly and recognizably, it would be “Let It Go.” In her toddler mushy mouth it came out more as “Deh-do” but it was clear what she wanted. When I got the soundtrack she’d make me play it on repeat and wouldn’t listen to any other song.
I passed the soundtrack off to her Dad during this obsessive period and then never got it back. So the kids were pretty thrilled when we got this in the mail:
As a kid, I always hated soundtracks with the full score. I wanted the SONGS and only the songs. And I’m sure you’re wondering if you are one of the many who purchased the original Frozen Soundtrack, the new edition does rectify the massive error in that version: there is now a track for Christoff’s reindeer song.
My kids would probably be just fine with 4 or 5 copies of the soundtrack. One to have in their room, one for Mom’s car, one for Dad’s car, you get the idea. We aren’t a big iPod family, and even if we were I’m not letting the kids’ stuff take over my gadgets. So we’ve done well with CD’s to appease them.
I’m guessing a lot of you are like us and could do with several copies. For kids who don’t want to share, for an extra copy in the car, for whatever it is you can probably use it even if you have the old soundtrack already. And if you didn’t get the old one, the new one is out today and available for $9.99!
There’s also stickers and a poster inside to make the kiddos happy. Not a bad choice for stocking stuffers if you’re one of those thinking-ahead types.
Even better, you can get a copy for free! I’m giving away a copy of the new Frozen: The Songs CD if you act fast, the giveaway ends on Thursday!
