I am telling you...If you've had a stressful day, just pop in That Baby DVD and watch "Happiness Runs/Circle Game" and you'll find yourself relaxing really fast. The song is so soothing, but when you add in the amazing graphics...it's just like one of my best meditation cd's. And it's for babies, people!
Well, I did feel better when I saw this on the website, though:
Okay, so maybe I'm not so crazy. :) They couldn't be more right. No more annoying Barney music as you drive in your van. This is music you will love to listen to, and watch, along with your kids.
The graphics reflect the latest 60's style that's so trendy now. Lots of pretty pinks, yellows and browns and "groovy" illustrations. I kept thinking that the creators should also be in the blog design business.
The vocals are even better. I'm also hoping that they make a cd for grownups because I would totally buy it. Their vocal style is the type I love listening to (it's like something out of Lileth Fair...except when the men sing of course, lol. But they're just as good!)
There's also a "That Baby CD" which has all of the songs that are on the DVD, plus three extras. Perfect for driving in the van, or for my youngest to play in her karaoke machine (she plays regular cd's in it and sings along).
And you will love the song choices. Look at their description of the song "Sunday Sun" written by Neil Diamond:
So very true! And I will sheepishly admit that while I've never been a big Neil Diamond fan, I am a HUGE fan of how the creators of "That Baby" have done his song. There's also "Pony Boy" written by Bruce Springstein, "Brass in Pocket" written by Chrissie Hynde, "These Are Days" by Natalie Merchant, and so many more. See how easily an adult could fall in love with this?
The DVD not only has graphic-themed videos, but there are also puppets, real life children playing guitar and dancing (they are so cute it will melt your heart), and cartoons just to name a few.
One of the best parts of the DVD/CD is how it was created. It's a "mom and pop" operation, created by two parents and their children. Who better to know what kids will love best?
