Dear Shushy Fans,
Time once again (didn’t this year kind of speed by rather quickly?!) for the annual Shushybye year-end wrap-up report. And here with the annual wrap-up is Shushybye correspondent, our own Steve Syatt (that's me):
Happy New Year!
For Shushybye, 2008 was the year we were delighted to unveil our 16” plush dolls, release two new books (Shushybye: Sleepover Surprise and Shushybye: Where Is Christmas), one new DVD (Shushybye Baby) and one new music CD (Shushybye Dream Band: Close Your Eyes) – all to critical acclaim and prestigious parenting media awards.
Most important of all, families throughout the world brought home the Shushybye dolls, music CD's, books, sleepwear and DVD’s to enjoy – and our days have been made joyous by the tremendous amounts of loving emails and calls that came our way. (Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to contact us by phone, email and letter during the year).
Looking ahead to 2009, we will be premiering all-new episodes of Shushybye Baby on BabyFirstTV and embarking on a multi-city live Shushybye Dream Band tour (we're working hard on it!). We are also excited to debut Shushybye: The Musical at the spectacular Geffen Playhouse in the spring. Our concert at the Geffen was tremendously memorable and I feel so privileged to be working with this outstanding team of professionals. We also will be producing a DVD of the Shushybye musical for release later in the year and a second live concert DVD. Also, resulting from popular demand, we will be publishing a Shushybye song book featuring the music, guitar/piano chords and lyrics to 40 original Shushybye songs. Michael North, the band and I have begun recording new Shushybye songs that will be featured in the upcoming Shushybye Baby episodes as well as be made available within future music CD releases.
There are also some pretty major Shushy developments in the works that I can hardly wait to share with you (stay tuned!).
We look forward to continuing to hear from you via phone (our toll-free number is 1-866-748-7492) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Its always fun to respond and engage in dialogue with our wondrous fans!
From our family to yours, we wish you health, happiness, prosperity and peace for the New Year.
Shushybye & Goodnight!
