My Milkshake brings all the kids to the yard…

My first review!! How excited am I?!?

Quite a bit actually.I’m most excited with the product that I was asked to review.

If your kids watch PBS Kids, NOGGIN, or Discovery Kids’ ToddWorld, then you have seen, or rather heard, this group.

I first heard the band Milkshake on PBS Kids. My kids loved their fun, upbeat songs and I enjoyed the fact that their songs were set to tunes that I could listen to regularly.The Baltimore based band began in 2002 when lead singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl started writing songs that were inspired by their own children.

Milkshake recently released SCREEN PLAY, a DVD of favorite videos from their songs. When I got the package I was excited to see what my kids thought. We were actually getting ready to go on a road trip so I saved it until we hit the road. When I popped it in the DVD player you would have thought my kids were at a concert!

They absolutely loved The Pirate Song and were able to sing along with it after the first verse. I’ve added the CD to my iPod and every time we get in the car the kids ask to play it. It is a permanent addition to our playlist.

Another benefit is when my kids are getting a little too rambunctious I can turn the CD on and the settle right down to dance and sing-along.
So where am I getting with all this??


This is a second set of the items I was given to review. You get the SCREEN PLAY DVD, the PLAY Music CD and a Milkshake Comic Book.

    They have written songs about baseball, bowling and even gardening. As a grandparent I would certainly encourage my grandsons to listen to this type of rock music. Thanks for having the wonderful giveaway.

  14. My daughter would love this… The theme of PLAY! is kids at play, from making believe to sports and there’s even a rave-up about just plain going wild, something all kids need to do from time to time.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  15. Here’s something you didn’t mention, they have a MySpace page.
