Shhhh.....

It's the season of merriment, hustle and bustle! Kids need to enjoy their daily physical activity, but they also need to unwind and rest -- maybe more than usual!

Kimbo's new CD, Let's Visit Lullaby Land, is a beautiful collection of quiet songs to calm, soothe and comfort your little ones. Who doesn't need that!
Two more Kimbo CD favorites, Sweet Dreams and Lullaby Time for Little People, offer more great songs and music for nap time and anytime.
.....And when they're up and ready to get moving again, the all new CD, Rockin' Aerobics, will re-charge them, and you too, with heart-healthy, fun fitness routines.

So, share the music and share the memories. Quiet time, active time, healthy time, this time of the year is a time to be mindful of what is good and what is important to make the season extraordinarily special and wonderful.

Thanksgiving...

Kids love Thanksgiving time, and Kimbo loves kids! Lively music and songs will add a special flavor to the Holiday and make the Holiday even more fun and meaningful. Kimbo offers several lively sing-along songs about turkeys and pumpkins. "The Turkey Wobble" from Holiday Songs for All Occasions, and "The Pumpkin Song" and "Hello Mr. Turkey" from Holiday Piggyback Songs are entertaining and a perfect addition to your celebration.











Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful, to gather together, and to remember to give thanks. The Kimble Family and their staff wish everyone a bountiful Holiday filled with joy. Special wishes go to those who are serving our Country for their safety and their well being.

About Kimbo


The late Bob Kimble, and his wife, Gert Kimble, founded Kimbo Educational over 55 years ago after successfully launching and marketing a dance record company. Branching out to the educational market in 1958 was a natural extension of the work they were already famous for. Today, Gert and sons, Jim and Jeff, continue the long-established tradition of excellence. Gert is the Company C.E.O., Jim serves as Kimbo's President, and Jeff is the Company Vice President.

Kimbo is renowned for a wide range of diverse categories and musical sounds. Our themes include singable songs, dances, musical play activities, aerobics, brain-based exercises, literacy, math, history, science, special needs, bilingual and more!

Our goal is to provide resources to support intentional and purposeful teaching. Our hope is to help you do your job, meet essential requirements and standards, and together make a difference for children.
