Meet The Rattles, a Fun New Band for Kids! (Giveaway)

If your kids aren’t talking about The Rattles yet, I think you’ll be hearing about them soon! This new band for children (and their parents!) has their debut album, “Rattle On,” coming out on August 17. So, what’s so unique about The Rattles? The biggest thing that separates them from the usual children’s bands is that they’re not human! That’s right, they’re a band of furry critters with their own unique sound, but reminiscent of classic bands like The Beatles and The Monkees. Here they are in their very first music video!

[Email subscribers: Please click on the title of this post to access the video online.]

Aren’t they awesome?! I love this music! Kids will enjoy meeting Gus, Kitty, Sal and Hal, and bopping to their catchy pop tunes. You can listen to another song, “Wavy Lane,” at

Go to to meet the band, listen to more music, and even join The Rattles’ fan club! And make sure to get a copy of their awesome new CD, “Rattle On,” on August 17th!
