Baby Loves Disco

Way back in 2009 I was pregnant with H. I work for a record label and at the time sat next to our radio department. We had a new single by a popular dance act and they’d put on the single “because we want your baby to like dance music” (so kind!). It worked too – every time that bassline kicked in H would start kicking and moving around. Maybe she was born to dance? (the songs were ‘Raindrops’ by Basement Jaxx and ‘Talk to Me’ by Peaches – not the most video-friendly to show your child though)

While I was on maternity leave the first Baby Loves Disco CD compilation came out which I was sent – and oh yes indeed – it has all the disco classics – and seeing H these days and how she’ll pick up on any music and start dancing, I guess music was always going to be a big part of her life. Baby Loves Disco has grown too; starting in the US and now they’re holding monthly events in London, Brighton, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester. We’ve not been yet but fully intend to; last month Little Bird did a tickets deal so keep an eye out!

Actually, I thought the price for tickets was quite high, but looking at what you get for your kids, this is a pretty good deal –  facepainting, a chill-out zone with play tents, inflatables, instruments and toys, a full spread of healthy snacks and juiceboxes, bubble machines, baskets of scarves and egg shakers, arts and crafts or other quiet activities, balloons, dancefloor games and competitions with giveaways and prizes and most importantly, everything for the little ones is included in the entry price.

Most importantly of all, there’s a cash bar for mum and dad should you choose to have a shandy or two.
