Everybody likes fun stuff, right?
Do Fun Stuff is a "kids album for parents". If you've ever cringed at the 300th repetition of a Barney jingle or gotten a bigger kick out of Feist's appearance on Sesame Street than you rightfully should have, this album is for you. I mean, why can't we enjoy the same music as our 3-year-old?
(My favorite is Morton the Caterpillar. I may like it a little too much. What? I keep hoping that someday I'll be the beautiful butterfly, okay?)
This album is the brainchild of Ryan at Pacing the Panic Room, who obviously has a lot of talented friends (all of the artists donated their time & music). If you don't follow his blog, his oldest has Smith-Magenis Syndrome, a relatively under-researched developmental disorder. 100% of the proceeds will go to a grant fund that he's established for grad students who wish to make SMS their field of choice.
If you click the monster below, you can preview the full album online as well as buy it on iTunes. If it's not your thing but you still want to help, there's a handy little 'donate' button. You can also put the monster on your own blog, link to it on Facebook, or tweet using the hashtag #dofunstuff.
(Did I buy it? Hells yes. And I immediately put it on my kid's iXL learny-thingie to replace the obnoxious singing monkeys. Nothing good can come of singing monkeys.)
