Rockabye Baby Review & Giveaway

Wouldn't you like to share your favorite music with your little darlings?  Now you can at bedtime or during quiet time.  Rockabye Baby has taken your favorite bands' classic rock songs and made them into instrumental lullabies.  Mellotrons, vibraphones, and bells are used in place of the often- fast paced and loud guitars and drums.  The sound is much mellower and softer and more suitable for little one's ears.  Some of the bands whose music has been remade into lullabies include: U2, The Beatles, Green Day, Aerosmith, The Beach Boys, The Ramones, and many more.

Their site features also features a blog (it includes coloring pages, baby food recipes, and more).  I liked the post about 5 Songs to Get Toddlers Dancing. They also sell cute little rocker onesies.


I had been sent the Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Journey.  The CD includes lullaby renditions of 12 of Journey's songs including "Open Arms", "Any Way You Want It", and "Don't Stop Believin'".  The little booklet inside the CD has a space for your little rockstar's name, birthday, first influential rock song, first time playing the air guitar, favorite foods to be served in his or her future dressing rooms, and their first haircut.  It also includes little dress-up bear cut-out rocker teddy bears which I thought were adorable.

My two year old wanted to listen to the new "moosic" as she calls it. I played it during "quiet time" when my oldest can play quietly while my youngest naps.  I usually don't play music during that time since my oldest is a bundle of energy but she danced quietly when I first turned it on.  She eventually settled down to read and play with her dolls.  My youngest slept peacefully in the other room.

The CD would make a nice gift for new moms who are classic rock fans.  In fact, they are about to release a sampler of their music through Starbucks.  Check out their fan page on facebook for more information.  You can win your own copy of the Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Journey CD.

I was provided with a copy of the CD to facilitate my review.  All opinions are my own.  No other compensation was or will be received.
