The Rattles. The Rattles are a family friendly quartet of furry animals that sing fun classic rock type songs. The Rattles consist of Gus, Kitty, Hal and Sal who have been friends forever. Don't they sound like someone you'd want you family listening to? I think so.
Here's a fun song called Rattle On to get you acquainted:
I was very excited to listen to this album because I heard that it wasn't cheesy, nursery rhymey songs that you can't wait to turn off. I will admit I was that mom that didn't play the CDs that were too over the top mushy gushy. I just couldn't take too much of it. Especially not a whole CD worth. Sure, they are great for bed time, but anything past that.....
My take on The Rattles is that it's very kid friendly. It was easy listening for me and my kids. My toddler loves all kinds of music and this was no exception. Now my tween on the other hand wasn't so thrilled. Don't feel bad Rattles, she only lives for Justin Bieber. I totally felt a Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band vibe on Rattle On. That was fun. On Wavy Lane I was thinking more on the lines of Simon and Garfunkel. And for R-A-T-T-L-E-S I was totally feeling Bay City Rollers. Don't laugh if I'm the only one who thinks this. Listen to these songs here.
