What’s the dealio? A Raggs contest!

You know how sometimes a song gets stuck in your head? You know how sometimes a kids’ song gets stuck in your head, and you find yourself humming it all day long, and you hope no one notices?

My name is Mir, and I confess I’ve been humming a song by a band full of brightly-colored dogs for the last couple of days. Yes, that’s right.

If you don’t know the Raggs Kids Club Band, they’re the canine sensation that’s sweeping the kiddie nation—their music is totally kid-friendly but (if you, you know, close your eyes and pretend it’s not dogs) adult-palatable as well, and they’ve got a PBS show good for 30 minutes of peace in a busy mom’s life, too.

Thanks to the generosity of the good folks at Raggs, I’ve got some goodies for giveaway here on Want Not. I have three (3) Raggs Dance Party CDs, and three (3) Meet Raggs DVDs. That means six lucky Want Not readers are going to win a prize this time around!

To enter, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, February 13th. One entry per person, please. Winners to be determined by random drawing, so (as always) sucking up won’t improve your chances of winning, but it will make you prettier.

Ready? Go!

    Please help my sanity. These DVDs will entertain my five year old right? And my three year old nephews? Perhaps they will not destroy the playroom? That’d be so awesome.

    Fabulous! And don’t feel bad about singing along. I was shopping at the local teen girl store (didn’t buy anything–too expensive) and they had a High School Musical 2 song on. There I am, singing along with Troy as I’m looking for skirts.

    My older two have outgrown their Wiggles obsession but my youngest hasn’t found his yet. Maybe this could be it! I wonder if I will regret entering this contest someday when I can’t get a song out of my head.

    Julie February 11, 2008 at 11:12 am #

    Ooh! I have to admit I’ve never heard of them, but, then, maybe that’s just a sign of how deprived my little boy is? (I’ve never seen the Wiggles, either…) We could definitely use more music to dance to, though! And he’s obsessed with dogs, so this sounds like a good fit for him!

  58. 58
    Jenni February 11, 2008 at 11:12 am #

    I’ve never heard of Raggs, but I have a feeling that the kiddo would love it. And adding some variety to the music playing in the car is always a good thing.

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This show first started in Australia where my family is from. I still have video of my son dancing to the show at 7 months old. He would pull himself up to the TV when I wasn’t looking. Now my daughter is the same age I have asked my family to see if they could find a CD or DVD so she could enjoy the show too!!!
    This really is a great show and I would love for both my kids to be able to enjoy this giveaway.
    Thanks so much

    I’m guessing these would be appropriate for a three year old? You know, to keep him from yanking the cat around, and getting in the fridge, and swiping my lunch even though he’s got his own, and stripping naked to run around the house yelling “I’m a nudie butt!” Please tell me these things will help him sit still for just a few minutes. Please?
