Friendly Blog

When we look back at the early days of Friendly Fables, we would never have guessed where we’d end up: not only a children’s author, but a children’s rapper and YouTube hitmaker with our video for Farts topping 75,000 views! (Honestly, we just set out to make board books all our kids would enjoy - but what an amazing ride it’s been!)

Sometimes, the best adventures are the ones where you forget your plan and simply follow your heart. What started as a silly book about toots turned into a fan-favourite rap and now, it’s going to be a whole children’s rap album. We are thrilled that Friendly Fables ‘Rap-A-Long’ Volume #1 is dropping on October 15th!

Here’s a sneak peak at the tracks on the album:

  1. Car, Car, Car!
  2. The Dino Rap
  3. Farts!
  4. Hero Vs. Zero
  5. Rainbows and Unicorns
  6. Rad Dad (featuring local hip-hop artist and music mogul Peter Jackson!)
  7. Boogers and Snot
  8. Rap-A-Long (fun instrumentals for you and your kids to freestyle to!)

You may have seen us perform some of these songs at recent events, where we’ve had a ton of fun introducing them to kids and parents alike. We’ll be making videos for many of these tracks, so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to be among the first to enjoy them!

If you can’t wait to get your hands on a copy of Friendly Fables Rap-A-Long Volume #1, there is a way to grab an advanced copy (shhh, we couldn’t help ourselves!). We’re taking copies of the CD along to all upcoming Friendly Fables performances and will be selling them for $12 each (or two for $20 - it makes a great gift). The album will officially be available on iTunes, Spotify and GooglePlay Music on October 15th, as well as in select stores. We are really excited for you to hear it, and grateful for all of your support.

So what’s next, Friendly Fablers? Books, live performances, rap albums...the possibilities feel endless. Thanks for coming on this journey with us and helping us grow. We hope to entertain your family for years to come!
