Quote from Ingrid Michaelson: Each character will have a song. And I immediately knew that I wanted to write the “Ibex song” because in the world of Slumberkins, Ibex helps kids to really embrace deep feelings and to know that those feelings and sensitivities are a great gift to have. I was a very sensitive child and continue to be a very sensitive adult and writing about allowing yourself to really feel what you feel resonated with me in a really special way.
 
Quote from A Great Big World: "Being a part of this album has been a really special experience for myself and my family. We were already familiar with the brand years ago after my wife and I saw them on Shark Tank, and we had ordered Slumberkins' product for our newborn son. Every night before bedtime, we have all sorts of meaningful conversations with him. But one topic that we keep coming back to is the idea that we are connected by love through our hearts forever, no matter how far apart we are. This is one of the reasons the Otter's affirmations hit home for me, and being able to sing this message to him and to our 1-year-old daughter through this song has been such a powerful experience! We even had a recording session in our apartment where we invited Bowie's friends and their families and recorded the kids on the choruses, which was lots of fun and definitely a "cool dad" moment for me. But it was also a way for us, in our small way, to bring families together and build community, which is what Otter is all about. We're excited for families everywhere to listen to this song and we hope they can use it to reinforce the unbreakable bonds of love they have for each other!"
 
Quote from Trevor Hall: "Making this song helped me tap into my inner child and what meaningful lessons I would want to teach my own son. Working with Slumberkins has been a great experience, I've enjoyed putting myself in a different creative space."
Quote from Co-Writer Kelly Oriard, co-founder and co-CEO of Slumberkins: "Otter's song is such an important message for kids to hear early on. When we have a fixed idea about what a family ‘should’ be, we miss out on what the importance of family is about. We all need connection and love, especially in childhood. Otter's song reminds us that family is chosen and love are the ties that bind us together. Wherever we find safety, love and connection, we can find a heart family and when we have a heart family, we always belong."
 
ABOUT SLUMBERKINS: Please meet Slumberkins! We are an early emotional wellness company, supporting families in raising caring, confident, and resilient children through the use of positive affirmations, stories and lovable creature characters... like a sensitive Bigfoot, an eccentric Unicorn, and a hard-headed Hammerhead. This year, we are expanding our reach into the entertainment space with the launch of an international preschool streaming series in partnership with The Jim Henson Company and Apple TV +, as well as the drop of our first music album titled Together We Shine in 2023. Music is an important part of broadening our mission by communicating with families in an accessible format as we set out to normalize conversations around big feelings. Produced by Ingrid Michaelson, this developing album will be an anthem for the modern family. Highlighting a diverse group of artists to represent our 15 skill-building collections, tracks will span themes such as self- expression and gratitude, creativity and confidence. Each song deepens the connection between parents and child, while reminding listeners to check in with their feelings and the strength inside them.
