When you’re driving down the road, listening to your own radio station and your kid starting
screaming singing along to “I woke up in a new Bugatti”, you know it’s time to get some new tunes.
We’ve had this talk before. Greg and I were raised with our parents’ music and some kid / faith music sprinkled in. We want our kids to be raised the same way. But there are just some tunes that the kids really shouldn’t be singing along to. That’s why having a copy of Kidz Bop on hand is a good idea.
Kidz Bop 24 and Kidz Bop Christmas! are two good options if you’re still looking for a gift. Both are available as downloads or CDs, so you can plug them in wherever you listen to music.
Not that listening to Christmas music is tough on the ears or morals, but Kidz Bop Christmas brings you 15 classics (like “Winter Wonderland” and “I Saw Three Ships”. These are more the mainstream songs of the season and not necessarily the carols you’ll be singing in church on Tuesday evening. Our kids enjoyed Jingle Bell Rock and asked to hear it over and over. (Thanks to Greg having them watch Home Alone on repeat, I’m pretty sure.) You can grab your own copy by checking out KidzBop.com.
And Kidz Bop 24 is full of songs from the summer of 2013 that are likely earworms in your head if you’ve been listening to your local pop station. “I Love It” is one of those songs in our house. We really shouldn’t be letting our kids sing about crashing cars into bridges and letting them burn. Instead, now they are singing “I drove my car across the bridge” and appending it with “like we do when we go to the grocery store, Mommy!”. I’ll take it. I also get to hear them sing “Girl on Fire” and “Mirrors”, two of my favorite workout songs. A great last minute gift, you can find it here.
Both of these CDs come recommended by the kids and Greg (who spends the most time in the car with them). We’ll definitely be using them on road trips to keep the sponges from overhearing too much. 😉 Thanks for saving our sanity, Kidz Bop!

One more item we got to check out was a musical toothbrush from Arm & Hammer Tooth Tunes. Arianna will be getting a “Party in the USA” toothbrush in her stocking, and if her singing this song at a year old is any indication, I am sure she’ll love it. I’ve seen these in stores while shopping, so I am sure you can still grab one.
