Well, this is disappointing. The previously-announced 50-City PAJANIMALS LIVE! PAJAMA PLAYDATE Tour (which I covered here on The Rock Father back in November) has been canceled. CID Entertainment (producers of the tour) have issued the following statement...

"Pajama Playdate Tour has been cancelled. Refunds are being honored for your purchase of Tickets or your VIP Party Packages. Please see below for details on refunds.

After covering the PAJANIMALS previously, a representative from The Jim Henson Company (makers of the show) had promised me tickets to take Addie. Fortunately, I hadn't mentioned it to her yet, as she'd be very upset. PAJANIMALS are a part of our nighttime routine here at Rock Father HQ, with their "Lullaby" Song being a pre-bedtime requirement. Now we're on the hunt for the new PAJANIMALS toys that were recently released by TOMY under their LAMAZE line.

Unfortunately, I tend to think that PAJANIMALS aren't a big enough brand just yet. On recent trips to TOYS R US, I've asked about the availability of the toys, and the employees have no idea who or what the PAJANIMALS are.

PAJANIMALS can be seen regularly on PBS Kids' Sprout.
