Will Stroet DVD giveaway (CLOSED)

This contest is now closed! Thanks for playing! Don't worry if you missed it--you can still see Will's videos online or buy a DVD. Details below...

Here on the Sprog, I'm excited to be hosting my second giveaway! While I don't mind doing product reviews or contests, I won't devote blog space to just anything. Particularly when doing a giveaway, it's got to be something I can get behind. Well-written, multilingual kids' music, made by local musician Will Stroet? Check!

We first heard Will Stroet perform this year at the Vancouver International Children's Festival. One of the reasons we took Sprout to his show was that I'd heard Will was really fun & the show was listed as appropriate for two & up. The kids in audience--babes in arms to 7 or 8--all were engaged, singing & dancing along because Will is a really interactive performer. From his years of teaching, he's gleaned the skills to really connect with his audience.

Will & his Backyard Band played a set of fun, catchy tunes that also have educational value, covering things like eating veggies, bike safety, French vocab, colours, counting. His songs are so attractive to kids because they have associated dance moves or actions that go with the music; seeing Will in concert or watching his videos is really worthwhile.

Besides having seen Will play at Kidsfest, I also had the pleasure of meeting him & his family a few times. I was introduced to Will at the opening night party then chatted a couple of other times during the festival. He really is as genuine as he seems in his shows.

Now that I've introduced you to Will, here's the scoop. I will be giving away one copy of his new DVD, 'Will's Jams', which features ten music videos of his songs. To enter the contest, you need to do THREE things:
  1. Go take a look at his videos HERE.
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling me which song is your favourite & why.
  3. BONUS: you get one extra entry if you share this contest on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Just leave a second comment telling me where you shared.
Follow me on Twitter or leave your blog address or email address in your comment so I can track you down if you win! Contest closes at noon (PST) on Friday, June 22, 2012. I'll choose a winner from the comments with a random number generator.

    The fine print:
    Two entries maximum per person.
    This contest is only open to people living in Canada & the continental USA.
    DVD will be mailed out to the winner the week after the contest closes.

    Just in case you can't wait, or you don't win, Will Stroet's videos are available to download for $1.99 apiece & each download comes with a free song. 'Will's Jams' DVD retails for $14.99, which also includes a  download of the soundtrack for free.

    Disclaimer: I was given a copy of 'Will's Jams' DVD, but was not otherwise compensated for this giveaway. 


    1. I like "je vais marche" because it's a great way to learn and practice french. Thanks! river26[at]gmail[dot]com @momstownteach on twitter

    2. I like the bike safety boogie! My kids are 8 and 5 so this song is very applicable. It's catchy too.

    3. I second Mel's Bike Safety Boogie - nice groove, and we are all about the Pedalheads this year, so very apropos.

    4. I also like the bike safety boogie... I can imagine my 3 year old singing this and doing the actions. A good way to learn some road (or sidewalk) safety tips!

    5. I like Bike Safety Boogie. It has a good beat and I would love for my daughter to watch it since she has just learned to ride her bike.
