Children’s Music Review & Giveaway: The Rattles - CLOSD

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for entering!
If you haven’t heard of The Rattles yet, you probably will soon ! The Rattles are a lively band of furry animals that make music for your children to get up and dance along with. The Rattles release their debut album, Rattle On, on September 25th. The colorful group of animal musicians has developed a fresh, modern mix of classic rock and power pop, which reminds me of The Beatles and They Might Be Giants! It’s definitely trendy music that won’t drive mom and dad crazy while your kids have fun! Not only will your kids learn music, tempo, and rhythm while listening, they will have fun too! The Rattles mix animation with music to give you toe-tapping music that kids and parents will enjoy! I know my kids have truly enjoyed listening to the music!

Their debut album contains nine songs: "Rattle On," "Lucky Sam's Banana Stand," "Shipwreck in the Sky," "Wavy Lane," "Goodbye Yesterday," "1-2-3 Count on Me," "R-A-T-T-L-E-S," "Monday Morning Drive" and "Apple of My Eye."







The Rattles Band was created by Tony Caio, who is best known for his animation direction for well-known licensed creations like The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss, Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory for Scholastic, and Hollywood Betty Boop for Bally Gaming. He created The Rattles Band so parents and their children would have a way to connect through a family friendly music experience.

Don’t forget to join The Rattles Fan Club! and be the first to know about upcoming releases, special deals, and possible tour dates!

My son and I just listened to the video clip. It was really fun. I learned from the website that they focus on music appreciation and teaching the kids the different instruments that make up a band.
