Whoever said “Laughter is the best medicine” knew a thing or two about life. Everyone who has ever let loose a roaring “ha-ha-ha!” knows that laughing has the power to turn a sad mood happy, transform anger into joy, and shift a good mood to the best one. Plus, it’s contagious. Have you ever caught yourself laughing because you could hear someone else laughing even though you have no idea what they are laughing about?
It’s powerful on a scientific level, too. Laughter decreases stress hormones, increases immune cells, and releases endorphins — those mood-lifting, feel-good chemicals in your body. So, what do you say? Are you ready for a good laugh?
This playlist will have you in stitches as you listen to the silly antics of Chad the dog and Spiro the skunk, two of Sparkle’s funniest characters. Whenever either of them is around, giggling is sure to follow (search for them in the Sparkle library by name: Chad and Spiro). Martin and Sylvia also add to the silliness of this collection and all Spiro’s friends over at the Junkyard join in on the fun, too. Whether you laugh at the stories themselves or just laugh because your kids are laughing when they listen to them, know that chuckling is a guarantee with these 10 funny tales.
