The Rattles Review & Giveaway...

All three of my children are music lovers.  We listen to music throughout the day and each time we get into the car.  I rely on CD's most of the time for their music (there are not that many kid friendly radio stations to be found) and I am always happy to introduce them to something new.

I was very excited when given the opportunity to review a CD by The Rattles called Rattle On.  The Rattles were a "new to us" band and I was pleased to be able to have the kids listen to something new.  First of all I wanted a little more information on The Rattles and this is what I found on their website....

“Friends that play together, stay together!” That’s The Rattles’ motto!
And boy is it true! The Rattles - Gus, Kitty, Hal and Sal - have been friends forever, and are now part of the best indie band around! With their manager, Benny, who drives the tour van (Sweet Pea) along with hundreds of roadies - all named Elvis.

How fun!   Something else to note is that The Rattles were created by Tony Caio, an award winning animation director, to give children and their parents a non-violent, family friendly musical experience they all can enjoy.  Hooray for Tony Caio!

When we headed out for errands the other day I popped in Rattle On for A,W and R to listen to. Right away their ears perked up at the new sounds and W asked me who it was and then asked to see the CD cover.  He was blown away that the band members were animated which won mega points from him!  The music of The Rattles is in the same vein as They Might Be Giants.  It really is music for the whole family.  The sound is modern with a bit of rock thrown in....just perfect for cruising around to!  Want to hear for yourself?  Have a watch and listen here...


Nice right?  I think it is totally listenable and the kids really loved it (especially track #6, 1-2-3 Count on Me).  The Rattles manage to make kids music a little more adult friendly.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You can purchase Rattle on here on Amazon...

My 4 year old son loves a cd with clifford on the front that has a bunch of fun children's songs on it. I think we got it in a kid's meal somewhere. My daughter (6) LOVES "Love Story" and sings it over and over when we are in the car.

My daughters favorite song is one I remember from grade school, and not even sure I remember it correctly. It goes "Have you eeeever gone fishin on a bright sunny day with the little fishes swimming up and down the lake and their hands in their pockets and the their pockets in their pants and the little fishes doing the coochie-coochie dance" haha!............kimbarsness(at)yahoo(dot)com
