I have to admit, I am seriously picky about the music my children listen to, especially the children's music they listen to. In fact, I wouldn't be at all offended if you called me a music snob. So when a package arrived in the mail containing a CD and DVD from "Milkshake" I was skeptical. I was pretty sure it wouldn't meet my high standards….
I was wrong. I was pleasantly surprised with the music and lyrics on this CD. Let me tell you, this CD has some pretty good dance party music on it, too–tutus and eye patches optional. The songs were easy for my kids to learn, so easy that after about the second playing, "we've got a band, yeah, yeah!" was on repeat in my head. The songs talk about things kids think about–imagination, pirate ships, super heroes, baseball and birds (one of my favorite videos on the DVD.)
For Emma, it was like she'd discovered her first "cool" music. And I watched her as she carefully mimicked the dances and motions of the female lead singer.
From the interviews on the DVD, the song lyrics and the overall vibe of the CD, I get the feeling these Milkshake folks are good people.
And you know, I have an extra copy of the DVD and CD to send to one lucky family.
