ALVIN!

Somehow, my husband found a trailer for the live-action, Shrek-style animation Alvin and the Chipmunks movie scheduled to come out this December. And then...he let my sons watch it over and over and over.... Now they can quote it and do, and if you watch it, you'll see just why it's the perfect little clip for two little boys.

So now that they've been exposed to the Chipmunks, I wondered if a CD would be a good idea. What kid doesn't love listening to that high-pitched, superfast, sorta garbled, babytalk chipmunk voice? I know I did. My husband is on record as against a CD (after letting them marathon-watch the trailer), but I surfed over to Amazon and let them listen to a few songs from one of the old albums. They loved it--of course, they loved it! So now it comes down to: can I possibly stand to listen to a CD full of those songs over and over and over again just to make my children happy? Maybe the Christmas CD...

Awwww...childhood memories. :) I loved the Chipmunks. I think your boys would love the cd and you can always give them times as when they can listen to it.

A Chipmunk movie? Too cute. Those voices are so adorable. BUT, if you get the CD, I totally recommend walking around the house wearing your iPOD when the kiddies are playing it. You don't want to go insane, after all.

I can't quite imagine voluntarily buying an Alvin and the Chipmunks album, but if you think you're strong enough to bear it, your kids will likely love it.
