Now Modern Day Dad's the real expert on this, but I do know that the kid will, from time to time, ask for Jack's Big Music Show by name. And since it's about 99% less annoying than The Wiggles, we give in sometimes, and let her watch it.
Now, those drum-playing pups are coming home to roost, because Noggin is auctioning off a private JBMS screening and a Laurie Berkner Band concert at their NYC HQ to the highest bidder--and up to 20 of his kid-sized friends.
All proceeds go to Noggin's Get Ready To Read - First Book campaign, which is seeking to place one million books in homes with at-risk kids. Bidding ends Nov 27th, but unlike eBay auctions, there's no set endtime; bidding continues until there's a 5-minute lull in the action. Bidding started at $500, which is what gift bags alone would cost for the kid's 2007 birthday party. You may be bidding against me.
