Rockabye Baby Review & Giveaway | Still Playing School

Rockabye Baby Review & Giveaway

By Devany LeDrew | Labels:
I've been a fan of Rockabye Baby music since before I had children of my own.  Shortly after the company started back in 2006, I would purchase their lullaby renditions of my favorite rock bands (like The Eagles) to play in my kindergarten classroom.

The soothing melodies were the perfect background music during our writing workshop.  My kindergarteners never knew that I was singing along to The Beatles Strawberry Fields Forever in my head as I checked their journals.  I didn't have to listen to kid targeted music that I didn't love!  The songs are familiar to any fans of the bands, but if you don't know the music they are still soothing, lyric-less lullabies.

As soon as E started sleeping in her own bedroom, she had music playing for naps and at night.  I dug out my Rockabye Baby CDs again to indoctrinate introduce her to amazing artists at a young age.  She sleeps to the best classic and alternative rock so the songs will be familiar to her when I play the original versions for her in a decade or so.

Rockabye Baby sent us four new albums to add to our collection!  We received Elton John, Michael Jackson, Jay Z, and Silverchair. We've been listening to these in the car (I love Yo Gabba Gabba, but there is only so many repetitions that this momma can take.) where E sometimes catches me adding in the lyrics when singing along!






Isn't the teddy bear cover art adorable, too?

Search your favorite bands and artists on their website to listen to some samples of the lullaby versions of your favorite songs. Be sure to check out the clever written lyric infused details above the sample music! You can create a wishlist for yourself (and your kids, too, of course)

You won't be disappointed by their selection of more than 50 albums as they are always adding new music. Follow Rockabye Baby on Facebook for news on their latest releases!  You'll definitely want to include one  as a baby shower gift if you know the parents' musical tastes or get a digital download gift card for them if you don't!

Rockabye Baby is generously offering to give away the same four albums we received to one lucky reader. Enter to win using the Rafflecopter below!
