Captain Zoom Birthday Song Review and Giveaway

About 25 years ago I was at Toys R US with my then 2 year old son Brandon and I noticed a rack of personalized birthday songs by Captain Zoom. Since my son's birthday was coming up (what kid doesn't like a special personality to know their name) and he was really into aliens at the time I bought one. Little did I know that this would become a special tradition for my entire family, every year since then on his birthday I woke him up by playing the song as loud as I could. It became a family thing as we snuck into his room and surrounded his bed so we could BLAST him to consciousness as The Captain Blasted his way to earth just to wish him a Very Happy Birthday.

When my son went onto the military and was gone for four years I played it for him over the phone and when he was in Iraq I did a video and sent it via email. 
He protests but it is like that clip in City Slickers where the mom calls every year at the same time to tell his birth story. If I stopped doing it he would miss it.

I still have that very old audio tape even though the quality is not as good anymore. I thought that there was nothing I could do but just use the tape until it could not be used anymore. I really wanted to save the tradition. My husband suggested that I see if they were still around so I checked google and discovered to my delight 24 years after I first discovered Captain Zoom he is still around and not only did I buy a new CD for my son I got one for my daughter who's name is so unusual I can not find it anywhere. They had it, not only can they customize any name to your cd but if the pronunciation is different they can do it too!

I can't tell you what a delight it has been to have this all these years and to know that the company has stay power. Plus they care enough to make sure every child will have their very own visit from Captain Zoom and the Kukelchoos on their Birthday.
AND They have a Video! Had I known about that I could have
bought it rather then spend the hours it took me to 
find the pictures and get them to work in the video.
