Since becoming a parent, I'm always on the lookout for fun kid's music to play in the car on our way to the store or out of town to see the grandparents. I was given the opportunity to review a kid's music CD called "The Rattles."
"Parents, kids, and music lovers of all ages have been singing unanimous praises for ‘RATTLE ON’, the lively full-length debut from this furry musical menagerie – composed of life-long friends Gus, Sal, Hal, and Kitty.
See what others are saying about this music group:
"Acclaimed parenting author and ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ Editor, Susan Heim referred to the album as “unique”, “catchy”, and “awesome” while Blissful Bee Blog recommended it to “anyone who has children that love music.” The Clever Mommy Chronicles drew comparisons to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and Rilo Kiley, and raved, “Really, truly, the CD is fantastic. In fact, I was disappointed because it only has nine tracks. I found myself wanting more. That’s pretty big for a kids’ CD!”
To celebrate the album release, "The Rattles" have come out with a new website, http://www.rattlesrock.com/ where you can learn all about these fuzzy friends playing music together. This fully decked-out, colorful little corner of cyber-space allows The Rattles’ biggest fans to read up on the band’s back-story, listen to some groovy tunes, scope out a slew of tour photos, play interactive games, and shop for official band gear at the online store. There is even a special section for parents!

Our whole family is music lovers. Even my two year old. When I put the CD in the car on our way to daycare, my son had a huge grin on his face when the music started. It's very catchy and family-friendly. The Rattles sound is a cross between The Beatles and Hanson. Before I knew it, the CD was over and I wanted to play it again! I think our favorite song was 1-2-3 Count on Me. My son seemed to like the lyrics to that one.
