for Babies and Toddlers
Music to share with your babies and toddlers
Get the best from our songs and rhymes
We make music for you to share with your babies and toddlers. And we really mean 'for you to share'.
This is a place to find songs and rhymes to fuel the energy of any part of a baby-minding day - changing a 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 that baby to sleep with a lullaby - or maybe a back-patting croon to help with the colic.
All our songs and rhymes come with tips on how to get the best from them, 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 demonstrated for you on audio by Playsongs People, a band of world-class musicians: Sandra Kerr, Nancy Kerry, Leon Rosselson, Kevin Graal, Steve Grocott, Janet Russell, Kaye Umansky, Debbie Saunders and Rick Wilson. Tap along, hum along, join in and sing. Then take them and, together with your baby or toddler, make them your own.
"Songs and rhymes are a gift to ourselves. The gift is our babies' delight and laughter as we engage in sharing words, actions and melody, face to face, one to one."

Wouldn't it be a fine thing to row a golden boat wherever we wanted, sitting next to each other and sharing the oars. Well at least we can imagine, and we can make our fingers and hands tell the story of The golden boat, this week's play rhyme.
