Songs for Wild Things (& a little giveaway)

Two years ago, Larry and I made kids' CDs for our friend David for his birthday and we made it a friendly competition to see which one David would like more. Now it has sort of become tradition (can it be a tradition if you've done it two years in a row?), and I've been meaning to share my playlist from this year in case some of you are looking for some fun kids' music. I'm sorry that a few of them are pretty much impossible to find to purchase (2, 8, 9, 11), but you can find them on YouTube if you want to listen to them and share the videos with your kids.

Happy listening!!


1. The Wake Up Song / Lisa Loeb 1:12

2. Teeny Little Super Guy / Sesame Street 0:28

3. Do You Like Waffles? / Parry Gripp 0:32

4. Grumpy / Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals 1:37

5. Pop Fly / Justin Roberts 3:05

6. The Yucky Song (Acoustic Guitar Mix) / The Giggles and … 3:47

9. 1234 on Sesame Street / Feist 2:27

10. Little Song / Michael Rachap 1:18

Hey Stephanie!

Elizabeth Klick said...

Hi!

I would love, Love, LOVE to win a copy of the CD! I am always searching for new music...and in these days with young children, my search is often geared toward kids' music. I read your blog often but have never commented. Since I am commenting now, I want to let you know how much I love the ideas you have come up with as a mother, an artist, and a homemaker. You are very inspiring and reading your blog helps to motivate me on my "blah days" of mommying...and for that, I thank you...

Elizabeth

P.S. Pick me!

Cassie L. said...

Holy crud! Look at all those comments. And yet, I have faith that I may still win. Your playlists so come in handy when I am making my kids' birthday dvds. Thanks for doing the work for me!

Allison said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and would love to win this cd...fingers crossed :)

tania said...

oh my how my girls would love to have this CD. what a wonderful gift idea too!

Deborah said...

I have two little girls who adore fun music. I'd love to win a cd of these tunes, so fingers crossed! :-)

Sara said...

I'd love to win! I have no idea what happened to the CDs we had from the older kids so we could really use it. Thanks for the chance to win! I get so many neat ideas from your blog!

Calvin Family said...

Great song selections! We are always looking for great new music to listen to. We are currently into They Might Be Giants ABC's.
Also, congrats on your pregnancy! You are such a great mother. Very inspirational.

Shar said...

Kapria yells at me to turn off the radio every time I turn it on when we're in the car. So I've been wondering what some fun kids' music would be for her to hear. She likes music, but for some reason she just doesn't want to listen to the radio. So then I thought, "I need to go to Stephanie's blog and find all her playlists that she's made and make some." And then you post this!

So I hope I win, but if not (b/c I am not generally a lucky person), I'll have to go make some fun mixes from all your ideas.

thanks!

PS. hope the poster is going well :)

Holly said...

Stephanie... Yes, you are the coolest mom IN THE WORLD. Thanks for inspiring others into greatness. You are great. Sign me up for the drawing! I would love these tunes! :)

51 comments, whoa! Well, then it needs to be said that you also have your lil’ fan club as far as in Warsaw (Poland) and Rotterdam (the Netherlands)! :) Don’t strive to win the competition though, but just used the opportunity to say ‘Hi’ to our fave mom on the web. ;)

Kurt Radmall said...
