mc chris is a nerd rapper who has done work for Adult Swim and Williams Street Studios. He is most notably the voice of MC Pee Pants(and all the reincarnations of) on Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Hesh Hepplewhite on Sealab 2021. He has put out numerous albums but Marshmellow Playground is his first children's album.

His take on the children's album has songs about having a great day, wishing he had brushed his teeth since he has cavities, macaroni and cheese, and a lullaby. Typical kids stuff that definitely appeal to kids.

The album starts off with a skit of two kids finding a really sweet playground and goes into the first music track "Best Day Ever". The album has four music tracks and four skits to start each song. Musically it is very similar to his normal music but with a slight more upbeat and happy sounding. His high pitched voice totally fits this album. He definitely is well versed in making rhymes and rapping them. It was neat to see someone do that for kids.

My favourite track on the album is definitely "Macaroni and Cheese and Cut Up Hot Dogs" as it is on par with his normal music as well is about the greatness of Mac and Cheese. Its a total winner in my book.

Obviously this is aimed for children but it is enjoyable as an adult. I personally found it a little lacking compared to his normal albums. It is pretty catchy and the beats are top notch. My daughter really enjoyed the whole album including the skits between the songs. That being said the album accomplished what it set to do, to make a kids album that kids liked.
