I was recently given the opportunity to review the Name Your Tune personalized CD. Now, my girls have received CDs similar to this, but they were never very interested in them because usually the songs were ones they had never heard. I was really pleased that this CD had songs they were familiar with! They loved hearing their names in songs like Old MacDonald and If You're Happy and You Know It. I also liked that I was able to get one CD that had both kids names on it! The songs alternated whose name was inserted. I think these CDs would make really great Christmas and birthday presents for any child, boy or girl. Here is some info from the Name Your Tune website:
Name Your Tune CD is a fresh and exciting children's music compilation that is made-to-order and features your child's name more than 80 times throughout the 14-song CD. The songs include the children's songs that we all know and love.
We can incorporate multiple names on a Name Your Tune CD...with pleasure. There is no extra cost to have more than one name included throughout our songs. To do this, we alternate songs between the names. When you place your order, simply put the names in the space indicated.
