There are good things and bad things about this CD. First the good things: Some of the lyrics are catchy and the music has a good beat. I think some little kids would like to dance to it - at least a few of the songs. But, that would be little kids ages 4 to 6. I liked a few of the songs the first time I heard them but over all, I really didn't have any favorites. As far as the things I really didn't like - there are three songs about fruits and vegetables which aren't different enough so that was repetitive. I mean - 3 songs on the same CD?! I also don't think the songs would be favorites of most younger kids. I don't know too many kids that would like to listen to songs about this topic. The singers voices are good but the lyrics are very repetitive. I'm referring to songs with lyrics like "No dinner, no lunch, no just want to munch, munch, munch" and it repeats over and over in the song called "Ruin Your Appetite." I wanted to stop listening after hearing the same words over and over so many times. I give this CD 3 out of 5 stars. There is nothing inappropriate for, younger children but it is just really not that fun. I played it for my nephew who is 4 and he liked only two songs out of the 14. He agreed that the fruits and vegetable songs were not any fun. His words were they are yucky but then, keep in mind that he hates vegetables. Over all, the band just repeats too many of their lyrics over and over. It's disappointing.
Play Date's We All Shine CD is awesome! The boy girl duo is really enjoyable and fun to listen to. The songs are catchy and each one offers something to learn. Some of the songs are about healthy foods or being a good friend. I found myself humming several of them throughout the day after listening! Any child that likes music and any adult that wants something they can jam to as well will enjoy this album. The album artwork is really bright and beautiful and there is a great message about the artists and a little about their mission. I found it interesting and unique to see the artists' pictures inside the sleeve as opposed to on the front cover. This collection of infectious melodies and empowering lyrics will get the whole family dancing! The songs have great names like "Ruin Your Appetite", "Ninja Pajamas" and "Hug Hug Hug". I highly recommend this CD!
