Oy! It’s a Sequel!
Jewish Babies Cheer the Release of OyBaby 2
DVD and CD for Jewish Children Arrives Just in Time for Hanukkah
Mercer Island, WA – December 6, 2005 – OyBaby LLC is pleased to announce the immediate availability of OyBaby 2, the long-awaited follow-up to its hit DVD and CD for Jewish babies, OyBaby. Encouraged by the positive feedback of OyBaby fans around the world, company founders Rob and Lisi Wolf re-teamed with lead musicians The Schneiderman Sisters to create an all new musical and visual experience for Jewish children ages 0-5. OyBaby 2 includes an all-star lineup of guest musicians, including famed Jewish recording artists Craig Taubman and Rick Recht.
OyBaby 2 is available on the company’s web site, www.oybaby.com, and at Judaica retailers nationwide.
Upon previewing advance copies of the OyBaby 2 DVD and CD, Randee Friedman, President of Sounds Write Productions, Inc., a Jewish music distribution company said “Our customers love the OyBaby products – they are “must haves” for Jewish families with young children. The same excellence in production customers appreciated in the first edition is also found on OyBaby 2!”
The OyBaby 2 DVD is a colorful medley of Jewish imagery, children at play, puppets, and nature scenes, set to the soundtrack of 15 fun and familiar Hebrew songs. Between songs, short interlude scenes teach Hebrew letters, numbers, and vocabulary and show the joy of giving tzedakah (charity).
“We were humbled and gratified by all of the customers that wrote to us, telling us how OyBaby became part of their children’s lives, and asking us to make another” states company co-founder Rob Wolf. “So, we rounded up the same adorable kids that starred in the original, brought in their brothers and sisters, and many of our friends’ children. The result is a more ambitious, varied DVD that will appeal to babies, toddlers, and wise old kids alike!”
Wolf and his wife Lisi do all of the filming, editing, motion graphics, package design, website design, marketing, shipping, and even gift-wrapping of OyBaby products from their humble “World Headquarters” home office in Mercer Island, WA.
The Wolf’s teamed up again with singer/songwriter Stephanie Schneiderman to produce and arrange the music for OyBaby 2. Stephanie is joined on lead vocals by sisters Lisa Schneiderman and Kim Palumbis. Rounding out the musical talent are guest musicians Craig Taubman and Rick Recht, a chorus of youth singers, and spirited songleader Doug Blauer.
