127We’ve found the perfect gift this Holiday Season for all the rockin’ families we know. Currently in frequent rotation in the Red Tricycle household, That Baby DVD has a little something for everyone on your list. Combining images of children dancing with a fantastic parent-friendly soundtrack, That Baby DVD appeals to the whole family, offering a soothing alternative to the late-afternoon crazies, and just the right window of time to prepare dinner.

That Baby DVD includes an eclectic mix of acoustic cover tunes, encompassing everything from classic rock faves (made famous by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Pretenders, Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac) to contemporary artists like Jonny Lang & Natalie Merchant. Northwest singer/songwriter Stephanie Schneiderman produced the soundtrack and provides many of the gorgeous vocals. There’s also a CD version with all the music from the DVD, plus three bonus tracks you won’t want to miss.

Talented Mercer Island husband & wife duo Rob & Lisi Wolf imagined and created a DVD built around the kind of warm, acoustic music they used to sing at summer camp. This is music that parents will be glad to play as the backdrop to their next dinner party. Wolf says, “Our goal is simple – make kids smile with music the whole family can enjoy.” Geared to kiddos from 0-5 years old, the DVD (which you can preview online here) is filled with sweet scenes of joyous children dancing & playing outdoors (little ones may even recognize a few of their favorite local parks), gardening, blowing bubbles, and getting ready for bed. There are also puppets and some clever animation mixed in. If you’re looking for songs about little spiders or purple dinosaurs, you won’t find them here, but with That Baby DVD, “happiness runs in a circular motion – happiness runs, happiness runs.” Just like your kids!

PS- Because the creators are parents too, they’ve instituted some cool policies that make buying from them a pleasure. They offer a “no questions asked” money back guarantee and free lifetime replacement of scratched discs. How’s that for child-proofing? Plus, the products are made in the USA using recyclable materials.
