This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Candie L. Congratulations!
Another morning in the Bailey household, and of course, I’m late. And I need to make breakfast for my son…who’s alternating between saying eat, eat and out, out. And did I mention I turned off the TV for the third time and I think it’s just a losing battle. So yes, I let my son watch TV while I make breakfast.
I try really hard to watch with him so that we can talk about what’s happening. I try to make watching television an interactive activity. I was watching Noggin (which is like preschool on TV so it’s totally ok, right?) and I saw a music video by a band called Milkshake,which was so interesting because I had been sent a CD/DVD and comic book to review just a few days prior. Well, watching that video inspired me to open the CD and put it on in the car since we have a ton of time driving back and forth to grandma and grandpa’s house in LA. I popped in the CD and thought, this is music that might be played on a kid’s radio station like Radio Disney. It’s upbeat with catchy lyrics. I wanted to get up and dance…but since I was driving I resorted to just snapping my fingers and bobbing my head…seriously!
The title of the CD says it all…Play! Isn’t that what kids do best? This CD is “a celebration of every kid’s desire to just have fun.” The songs are about baseball and bowling, pirates and pretending, and having a really good time! Drawing inspiration from Rodgers and Hammerstein and Lennon-McCartney, Milkshake is a band on “a mission…to create great rock music for kids.”
The band has recently gained popularity and their songs were added to radio playlists across the country. They have appeared on Noggin, PBS Kids, and Discovery Kids ToddWorld. Children love music…they love to sing and dance and move and groove. Why not get them moving with a little inspiration from Milkshake?
Win It! One of you will win a copy of Milkshake’s latest CD entitled Play, Screen Play, a DVD of favorite videos (and behind the scenes interviews with the band), and a comic book.
