Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock {kindie rock}

I am so happy to have met Gustafer Yellowgold.  When I first heard the name and saw the character,  I was intrigued.  I popped Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock in the DVD player and I was instantly sucked into a fun world of good music and creative illustrations, a “musical moving storybook”.  My daughter giggled the whole time, and I have to admit, I did too.  Gustafer is a funny looking mustard-colored guy who was created in 2005 by Morgan Taylor.  He has been recognized by top critics and received incredible accolades, especially for his latest (Infinity Sock), releasing March 1st 2011.

When I first saw The New York Times refer to this CD/DVD as “Dr. Seuss meets ‘Yellow Submarine’,” I choked on my water.  How could this truly be?  Then I read Time’s review which explained it as the “Star of  Kindie Rock” and I just had to figure out what kindie rock was.  There was review after review, so I decided to make my own review.  Wow.  If this is kindie rock, sign me up.  With displayed lyrics on the bottom, it was super easy for me to sing along while my daughter tried her best.  I realized about 20 minutes after the end of the film that I was still humming the ridiculously catchy tunes.  I’m so not kidding.  I was happy to see that this is a DVD/CD combo.  I take the CD in the car and play it for my daughter as she is now memorizing the songs.  It’s truly kid’s music that cool parents will love.

So, there is already 3 prior DVD/CD sets for you to enjoy, but do not forget to make your pre-order (at a sale price) for Infinity Sock.  Gustafer and his sock-loving pet eel, Slim, star in this one.  Gustafer has come down from the sun (explains the color and solar warmth) to apparently get himself into ridiculous situations.  He is settling into his new house in Minnesota, discovering that his pet eel, Slim, loves to snake all his socks from him.  Gustafer goes on a wacky hunt for the toe-end of the longest sock in the world, an infinity sock.  Along the way, he runs into all kinds of creatures and predicaments.  Throughout the story, awesome acoustic “kindie” songs play (performed by Morgan Taylor as well).  It’s a pleasant must have.
