I know I've mentioned in the past that my 3 year old knows the lyrics to "Blister in the Sun" by the Violent Femmes. While it is a fantastic song and a necessary part of my children's cultural education, I'm not ignorant of the fact that a song about drug use might be a tad bit inappropriate for the preschool set. "Ya think?" as Hollis would say. (OK, I admit he also got that from me.)
Enter the That Baby DVD and That Baby CD. I recently had the opportunity to review the set for the Parent Bloggers Network. The music is mostly performed by Stephanie Schneiderman and her sisters, Lisa and Kim. Ms. Schneiderman has a wonderful, melodic voice that I could listen to all day. The CD and DVD cover songs like "Inch by Inch," made popular by Donovan and "These are the Days," made popular by 10,000 Maniacs.
The That Baby CD is great. The kids love bopping to the songs, but let's face it. The most important listener is me. I love the music. The kids like the peppier songs like "Inch by Inch," but I love the more mellow songs. In fact, the videos for "Sunday Sun," and "Songbird" on the That Baby DVD, make me cry every. single. time. I really wish I could embed their promo video for you, but you can hear samples of the music and get a feel for the DVD on the That Baby DVD site.
You can get a 20% discount on the That Baby CD and That Baby DVD with the code PBN. That Baby DVD also has a no questions asked, money back guarantee. But trust me, you won't need it. You'll love the music and video as much as your kids will.
Frankly, I'm just relieved that Hollis may start singing "Inch by Inch" in preschool instead of "Lose Yourself" by Eminem. What are you still doing here? Go check it out!
