Name Your Tune CD Review and Giveaway!
Recently, I was asked to review the Personalized CD, "Name Your Tune"! It is a collection of childrens songs, with some songs personalized with your childs name! How cool is that?!
So. when I recieved the CD from Name Your Tune, first thing I did was pop it in my CD player in the car and crank it up when I picked the kids up from school. Immediatly, my 6 year old daughter recognized "If Your Happy and You Know It" and started singing and dancing to it. The next song was the best though, "Little Ashlee Had a Farm", she was so excited about her name being in the song, it made her laugh and sing the whole way home! My 10 year old son even got into a few songs, and I didn't think he would, being he is usually "too cool" for this type of CD!
There are 14 different songs on the CD, here are a few, along with the above-
-Wheels on The Bus
-Down at The Park
-Head and Shoulders

In my opinion, this CD would be a wonderful gift for a child for the holidays, probably more towards the ages anywhere from 1-8 years. However, these are songs that EVERYONE knows, so the entire family can sing along together for a awhile, or passing the time driving along, with 14 songs, it's a great gift!
