The small boy loves music. Since he figured out how to use his Dads iPod we’ve been regularly treated to his own personal musical style and constant demands to dance. Dance Mummy, dance! We love this and it’s only to be encouraged, even if his music taste isn’t particularly small boy appropriate. Rage Against the Machine anyone?
We were sent a personalised Pop Goes Your Name CD to review. It’s a collection of fun and upbeat songs, personalised with the small boy’s name, which makes it extra special for him. The CD, which is written for children in their early years features a selection of musical styles, with catchy melodies and sing-along lyrics, so there’s a little bit of rock, a little bit of pop and a little bit of hip-hop etc.
We had a small family disco to see if we liked the CD, we did. From the moment it started he was dancing, he danced all the way through. We danced a bit too, there were some serious toe-tapping tunes on this toddler CD.
What I liked about it was that it wasn’t toe-curlingly twee, it wasn’t sickly sweet nursery tunes, but proper, actual songs that you could listen to and enjoy. We’ve only listened to it a few times and it’s not worn thin or got annoying. And the small boy absolutely loves it, which is always the true test. You know with a child that if a toy, game, CD or whatever is good they keep asking for it, and he does.
The Pop Goes Your Name CD costs £12.95 and you can choose from the top 800 children’s names. I think at that price it’s a great present idea for a small child, ideal for birthdays and Christmas. It’s a lovely gift and one we’ll enjoy together on our little disco nights and on car journeys.
