This is the near-legendary video that started the trend of songs for
kids on video in 1986. The footage of kids playing in houses and backyards
has a delightful homemade quality and is anchored by the songs of Hap
Palmer, once dubbed the "Bob Dylan of the diaper set." His songs do
have a nice folksiness that is just right. From the very first song,
"Piggy Toes," you can see where the video is aimed: the Sesame Street
group of infants to 6-year- olds. Palmer has a gift for writing bouncy
numbers that go beyond the normal subject matter. "My Mommy Comes Back"
speaks to kids who are left at Grandma's or a day care center ("my mommy
comes back, she always comes back..."). Other songs on the 30-minute
tape include "Shout And Whisper," "Rolling," and the self-explanatory
"Today I Took My Diapers Off." -- Doug Thomas
From Parents' Choice
The first and finest volume in a now-famous series shows babies' and
toddlers' lives; they eat, they sleep, they play endearingly while the
production tickles the funny bones of youngsters and parents. Volume
I is a smart combination of animation, puppetry and live action. Gentle
in the tone and color, it spills over with joy, truth and laughter.
Here first appears the unforgettable coming of age baby song of the
ages, "The Day I Took My Diapers Off." A Parents' Choice Approval.
