Habla Blah Blah Flies to The COOP
Habla Blah Blah has a wonderful way with the kiddos. That's why CC and I were more than happy to check out a live performance at The COOP, a fun kid space in the Valley, last Friday.
Through music, dancing and activities, this Los Angeles-based group teaches children about Spanish language and culture. We visited a class a few months ago, and CC loved it.
Lively singer Jamey Hood, former hostess of the Hollywood Bowl SummerSounds Children's Series, and the gang celebrated her pretend birthday -- Feliz Cumpleanos! -- and sang songs including "Hola" and "Mis Manos."
The COOP itself is a real find for active children. The indoor play space offers a giant ball pit with a twisty slide (right), a bounce house, pretend kitchen as well as a cappuccino bar for the grown-ups.
When CC walked in and saw the ball pit, she wasted no time shimmying up onto the small wall and leaping into the sea of orange, yellow and white balls like a flying squirrel.
After singing, dancing, playing and leaping, let's just say nap time was glorious.
