As the Teddy celebrated its 100th Birthday, producers and parents Doug and Geri Pell released Teddy Bear Tunes Volume 1, a children's album devoted to the world's most cherished toy, the Teddy Bear. This instant children's hit includes original songs such as "Happy Birthday, Teddy Bear", "Dance With Your Teddy Bear" and "Your Bear Will Be There" and treasured classics such as "House At Pooh Corner" and "The Teddy Bear Picnic." 

Distributed through Rounder Kids Records, Teddy Bear Tunes Volume 1 is the brainchild of composer and producer, Doug Pell, inspired by the joy his 18-month-old son found in his Teddy Bear. Pell, who has over 20 years experience in the recording industry, has assembled an amazing, unique team of world-class musicians to perform the ten-song album.

 

On Percussion is the incredible Manolo Badrena from "Weather Report." The Bassist, Mark Egan, comes from the celebrated "Pat Metheny Group."   Eric Weisberg of "Dueling Banjos" performs Guitar, Mandolin, and Dobro. On keyboards is Jon Cobert who has been co-producer and keyboardist for Tom Chapin. Best of all, this musical dream is completed by Eugene Ruffolo, whose warm, accessible singing is loved by children and adults alike. The album is recorded and arranged by Doug Epstein, who brings 25 years of studio experience to the party, including highly noted recordings for "Sesame Street." 

Teddy Bear Tunes Volume 1 makes the perfect gift. Whether you arekeeping a toddler entertained in the car with songs like "Six Little Teddy Bears" or putting a little one to bed with a sweet and soothing lullaby such as "Go To Sleep Little Teddy Bear," Teddy Bear Tunes promises hours of fun and quality time for parents and children.
