‘Tis the Season for Club Cards!
It’s festive season, and the occasion you've all been waiting for is here: it’s time to pick your Yoto Club Cards. Woo-hoo! With brand new and original content and a wonderfully wintery feel to the selection, we’re sure you’ll find something to help you shut out the cold and cosy up with your Yoto Player this month. Just don’t forget your wooly socks!
This Month’s Picks
Two brand new releases this month for the budding performers and young history buffs amongst us!
3, 2, 1, Beatbox!
The Beatbox Collective
First up, bringing a burst of beatboxing brilliance, is 3, 2, 1, Beatbox! Two world champion beatboxers from the Beatbox Collective teach you how to make music with your mouth on this fun and interactive music card.
Ladybird Audio Adventures: Ancient Rome
For a very different adventure, in our second new card you can join Otto, Cassandra and Missy on a trip back in time! Chariots at the ready for the Ladybird Audio Adventures: Ancient Rome.
This Month’s Swaps
As always, you can swap out these Cards for something else if you wish! We’ve got eight options to choose from, with snowy classics, brilliant albums, timeless adventures and more…
My First Orchestra Album
For our first swap, little listeners can discover the different instruments in an orchestra and the different sounds each one makes - whether they’re playing on their own, or all at the same time! From Wagner’s grand ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ to Tchaikovsky’s gentle ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’, My First Orchestra Album is the perfect springboard for a lifelong journey through classical music.
Mog and the Vee Ee Tee
Our second swap is a wonderfully silly tale for younger listeners, following the misadventures of everyone’s favourite forgetful cat. When Mog hurts her paw, she’s horrified to learn that she has to go to the dreaded vee ee tee - and causes chaos at the surgery!
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Other Stories
No Christmas is complete without the classic tale of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Alongside Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius, the Abominable Snow Monster and the Misfit Toys, find out how the most famous reindeer of all saved Christmas.
Starlight Dance by Mrs H and the Sing Along Band
Mrs H and the Sing Along Band
Mrs H and the Sing Along Band, a collective of professional musicians united by their passion of bringing quality music to children and their families, are back with their second wonderful compilation of 13 songs to get the whole family dancing, wiggling and singing!
Winnie the Pooh: The Complete BBC Collection
A charming treat for all the family, this swap tells the story of a certain honey-loving bear! Narrated by Alan Bennet, join Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Christopher Robin and the rest of the gang on their many adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Fun Kids Science Weekly
Perfect for budding scientists, this weekly podcast explores the coolest stuff in science - from way back when the dinosaurs roamed to a future where humans live in space. With special guests, top experts and more, there’s something mind-boggling to discover each week!
The Snow Queen and Other Stories
Hans Christian Andersen
For slightly older children looking to get into the winter spirit, you might want to choose this collection of Hans Christian Andersen tales. Alongside the Disney-inspiring classic are four other tales: The Leap-Frog, The Old House, The Snowman and The Daisy.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Lastly, for some high-seas adventure, it’s the pirate story that started it all: the BBC’s full cast dramatisation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Filled to the brim with swash-buckling excitement, join Jim on a journey rife with pirates, mutiny and buried treasure!
We hope you enjoy your Club options this month, and we’ll be back in the new year with a whole new selection of Cards to choose from. Happy listening!
