for Babies and Toddlers


We love Kaye Umansky's play rhymes. They are like the best of traditional play rhymes for babies and toddlers - little miniature stories packed with playfulness, which make our little ones laugh. Here's a new one, which we've published in Playsongs Grand Exercise - Track 8: Ten Little Teddies. It is performed by Kaye herself with Steve Grocott's mandolin providing the dance music.

The ten little teddies, all fast asleep, wake up to dance and play all day till they curl back into our palms and rest again, tired out by the fun they've had. Take a little baby's hands in yours, or model a ten-little-teddy dance with your own hands for your toddler to join in with.

Interactive Play with Under-fives

We bring together songs and rhymes for interactive play with under-fives. They're hands on, engaging, active and they're all about shared fun.


This is a place to find playful ways to fuel the energy of any part of a child-minding day ~ changing a baby's nappy, getting shoes on wriggly feet, splatting through mud, stacking a brick tower, making cup cakes, getting jam all over the place and splashing around in the bath. What a day. Time to get them to sleep with a lullaby - or maybe a back-patting croon to help with a baby's colic.

Order the Books+CDs • Stream the Audio Free

All our books come with guidance and ideas for getting the best from the interactive songs and rhymes, whether they're a peekaboo, a fingerplay, a face-toucher, nose-squeaker, a toe-tickler, a knee-rider, pony trotter, action song or dance. They're full of pictures for sharing too.

Our audio is performed by Playsongs People, a band of brilliant musicians: Sandra Kerr, Nancy Kerr, Leon Rosselson, Kevin Graal, Steve Grocott, Janet Russell, Kaye Umansky, Debbie Sanders, Rick Wilson, Giles Leaman and Tom Wright.


All our songs and rhymes are free to stream. Order the books to get the best from them, enjoy the illustrations, and have each collection available (with CD) in a hands on, physical space.
