AllMusic Review by Johnny Loftus

Though it's entitled Humpty Dumpty, this collection of music for kids actually runs the gamut from that classic number to other standards like "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and "The Old Grey Mare" to silly tunes like "Winkum Winkum" and lullabies. The identical choir of plucky child singers that graces most of Madacy Entertainment's children's music collections appears here, cheerily vocalizing over upbeat arrangements led by piano and synthesizers. It's an entertaining album, and should encourage most young listeners to at least laugh along, if they won't sing. The occasional addition of banjo (even if it is the electronic facsimile of one) is a welcome respite from Humpty Dumpty's somewhat rote sound, particularly on the jaunty opener, "Polly Wolly Doodle."
