‘Ngāti Fruit Salad Kid’ Book + ‘Kākāriki: Simply Us’ CD


The third book in our ‘Rainbow Book Collection’ AND our debut CD album!

Categories: ,


The third of our ‘Rainbow Collection’ books and debut CD album.


He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau | Ngāti-Fruit Salad Kid is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s third bilingual children’s songbook.

Each of the books feature our hand-drawn bird characters introduced in our first book, ‘E Rima Ngā Manu | Five Little Birds’. In this third pukapuka, we meet lots of animals from around the world, as we celebrate the different cultures that make each of us unique.

The ‘Ngāti-Fruit Salad Kid’ waiata is track no.13 on our debut CD album, “Kākāriki: Simply Us“, and the reo Māori version, ‘He Uri Ngāti Hua-Rākau’, was released in digital-form only. Check them both out on all major digital music platforms and hit the links below to watch and listen on YouTube:

‘Kākāriki: Simply Us’ is Loopy Tunes Preschool Music’s debut album!

A labour of love, we bring to you a 13-track collection of Siu’s originals, and some favourites, in the style that we are known for, acoustic guitar and vocals – in other words… simply us! Our intention with ‘Kākāriki’ is to build a rainbow music CD collection for all our lovely followers, starting with green/kākāriki.



All books purchased from our online shop are printed by Blueprint Limited, here in Ōtautahi/Christchurch. This book is also available as an e-book.

If you’d like the book signed, and written for a specific person/children, just pop the details in the “Add A Note” section, on the Checkout page.


We hope you and your tamariki enjoy reading and singing along to all our waiata and books together!
