• One of the more recent kid-friendly jams to hit the streets, this one features two of my friends coming together for some groovin' and movin' for all ages. Enjoy Twinkle Time and Mista Cookie Jar.

  • Wanna kick-start a rockin' playlist for the whole family? Well, RAISE YOUR HAND and give it up for the Not-Its! This Seattle crew counts former members of Velocity Girl and Harvey Danger among its ranks, and "Haircut" is something that parents can all identify with.

  • One of my favorite things to do is to sit down and play some vinyl for my girls. In fact, I think if more adults played records for their little ones, the music industry could see a boom as new generations would feel a real connection to their music, not just some mysterious file on a "device." This song from Sugar Free Allstars captures the vibe perfectly.

  • It's been a little bit since we've heard from Lunch Money, but here we have a 2015 music video for a song from 2012. Overall, it's new again, and probably new to most of you anyway. Look at that adorable little gingerbread man!

  • My favorite song from my least favorite album by Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, "Imaginary Friend" finds the most notable purveyor of "kid-hop" busting out some fresh rhymes over a funky jam with a sweet horn section and Pickles. Yes, Pickles is real.

  • You may recognize this voice from telling you about "Peaches," the "Mach 5," or a "Lump." Yep, Caspar Babypants is actually Chris Ballew, the voice of The Presidents of the United States of America. He's released many albums under the Caspar Babypants moniker, and you should buy them all. This one is from 2014's "Rise and Shine."

  • Do you have a house full of LEGO bricks? Us, too! Like to rock? Us, too! Seattle's Recess Monkey can easily marry both of those interests, and they did on "Brick by Brick." Yes, that is an X-Wing Fighter.

  • Mr. Whirly is technically a one-man band, but his folksy, bluesy goodness on "Lookin' Out the Window" recalls Fun Lovin' Criminals...for kids. And their grown-ups, too. Stream this one and grab the download while you can. Solid grooves.

  • You might know Danny Weinkauf from his more famous band, They Might Be Giants. You've heard of them, right? When he's not working with TMBG, he's making his own music, and last year he released his first solo-Kindie album. This "Marsupial" video deserves more views from folks like you.

  • Take Pierre de Reeder (Rilo Kiley) and Chris Phillips (Squirrel Nut Zippers), add them together with Samantha Tobey (a former Mommy & Me music teacher) and you have The Squeegees. Play this for your little ones and I guarantee they will bounce.
