Iguana Wants to Baila VIDEO
OWTK * I carried the computer over to her and together we watched, smiled, and shimmied (the Latin groove is infectious). .
Zooglobble * If the Geico Gecko had a cousin who liked to go salsa dancing, this video might tell the story.
The Wild World of Wildlife CD
National Parenting Publications Awards * Engaging vocals, bouncy world rhythms and fun songs about animals from around the globe will have you movin’ and groovin’ while you learn
Parent's Choice Awards * The monkeys chant, the fiddler crab raps, the wombat scats as Birdie takes listeners on a wildlife tour around the world.
Pixie Deals * Somewhere in the middle of central California my 3 and 5 year olds started to lose it. It was about to get ugly in that car! So I popped on Birdie’s Wildlife CD. I had to laugh as both boys froze in their seats. After a few seconds of silence and wide eyes I could see them starting to wiggle to the beat. Yay! Soon they were rockin out and signing along. . . Even the “too cool for kid music” 9yo and 12yo were nodding their heads to the beat.
Dadnabbit * for children in Birdie’s target audience, Wildlife‘s simple beats, instantly memorable singalong refrains, & infectious sense of fun should prove irresistible.
Pop Dose * The chorus (of "Shake Your Tail Feathers") breaks down into a “Shake, shake, shake” chant, and I can imagine a roomful of kids moving their tookuses to the left and right as fast as they can.
School Library Journal * Former backup singer for Ray Charles, Birdie Mendoza serves up a snappy helping of 11 excellent tunes on this upbeat album.
Hilltown Families * Get out your shakers, put on your dancing shoes, and check out Wildlife. Animal lovers unite!
Building Our Story * Jude has always been a music baby so I wasn't surprised when we started listening to this CD that Jude was dancing, smiling and having fun BUT I was surprised that when we stopped the CD he got angry! LOL
Cummins Life * You cannot help but sway and move when you listen to this CD.
Red Tricycle Los Angeles * If you’re looking to let your kiddo shake their tail feather (and leave tired) then Birdie's Playhouse Go Animal concert series is a great choice.

Los Angeles Times * ...Birdie's Playhouse, a group whose calling card is their "hip, spicy mix of wildlife originals & classic animal songs" (has) a matinee kid's show at McCabe's. (It) will be sure to delight the kids & get the 1 to 5-year olds shaking their tail feathers.

Birdie's Playhouse Go Animal Concerts.
Birdie had them dancing in the aisles, and learning a little about iguanas and wombats at the same time. Totally fun!

After 12 years of going to kids b-day parties, I have to say you are my favorite! U not only made my daughter's day but all the adults as well. Your fun dancing music & warmth made everyone smile.

Birdie's energy is contagious. Her sense of humor and songs kept the attention of over 30 toddlers - and kept parents laughing!

Birdie’s show was perfect for our 3 year old boy's party. The kids were so attentive. I think my daughter Ella (4 yrs old) thought it was her birthday too -- the way she was jumping around in the center of it all! Later that evening, I heard the two of them humming the tunes!
-- Roshanna Baron | Westwood, CA
Both the 1 year olds and the 3 year olds had a blast dancing and singing. Thank you so much for such an amazing performance!!

Thanks so much for a fantastic show! Songs that pair impressively informative lyrics with infectious rhythms kept the audience - from toddlers to 10-year-olds - bopping, and learning!

My 4 year old LOVES this CD! Every time we get in the car, he asks for "Birdie's Playhouse please."

In the pause between every song, my son gets so impatient waiting for the next one he cries “More, More!"

Your CD is still Kinkade’s favorite (age 3) and can get him out of a bad mood better than anything else.
-- Kiersten Elliott | Associate Dean | Santa Monica College
As soon as "Shake" comes on Juliette (8 mos) lets out whoops of delight. Marcus (2) is so obsessed, we have the song on repeat!
