5 out of 5 Doves

The soft musical notes on this CD with 9 selctions , punctuated with lovely baby sounds of gurglings and coo's was pleasant. In "Melodic Questions and Answers", there is a nice progression of pace and beat, along with soft rattle sounds and gentle baby cooing. I found "First Time I Hear the Sea", with the gentle lapping water, accompanied by harp and piano, to be most appealing. Along with the harp, piano and water sounds, baby was softly saying: "Mummy, da-da, and ba-ba". On "Baby Loves The Blues", with its distinct beat of do-wap and singing, I felt was somewhat more focused on the purchaser than the baby. Overall though, this song was a good part of the CD. "Baby's Toys Meet Melody" was interesting and would be familiar to the baby, because there are sounds of their first toys, accompanied with more gentle music patterns. I can see this CD being played in a child's nursery as the parent/care giver puts the child down for a nap, leaving these gentle, soothing, punctuated musical sounds in the room. This is a winner for baby and I give it 5 Dove's!





5 out of 5 Doves

There are more gentle, soft musical notes on this CD of 10 selections: second in the series of Lovely Baby CD. Of particular interest was "Birds, Forest, Baby", which introduces bird sounds into the child's brain, along with more lovely music in the background. For the family that already has a bird/birds, this would be great, from my perspective. There is the upbeat cadence of dancing found on "Babies, Dancing Around". I was also pleased to hear more wonderful water sounds on both "Baby Sings Melody", and "Baby Smells The Sea". This CD is another winner, which deserves 5 Doves!





5 out of 5 Doves

This is the third entry, containing 10 selections, in the Lovely Baby CD series. The CD opens with "My Lovely Mama", with lovely soft music and sweet utterings of a baby's voice saying "ma-ma", over and over again. There's a distinct upbeat cadence on "O.K.", which follows with "I Play", and a return to a softer theme on the xylophone and more familiar sounds of baby's toys in the background. The piano takes precedence in the middle of the CD on "For My Mama" and "This One's For You". The CD ends with "I'm Going To Sleep Now", accompanied with soft baby gurgling and gentle music. This is another winner in the series and gets 5 Doves!





5 out of 5 Doves

"Baby Classics" is just that: ten familiar classical selections from Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and Brahm's, that Raimond Lap has effectively used to interject wonderful baby sounds: laughing, gurgling ooh's and ahh's. The CD opens with a piano solo ""Fur Elise" by Beethoven, and is followed by Bach's "Minuet", accompanied by soft baby sounds and background sounds of babies toys; all blend together beautifully! The very familiar "Ode To Joy" - Theme, by Beethoven is just that: joyful and upbeat and the baby is saying "Ooh!" in a happy voice. Birds and water are to be found in the middle pieces by Mozart and Bach: "Theme" and "Air". The familiar sounds of the birds and running water, along with the exquisite music by these composers, makes for wonderful music not only for baby, but everyone. This wonderful CD, which rates another 5 Dove's, ends with Brahm's famous "Lullaby".





5 out of 5 Doves

This CD has traditional Christmas songs, but could be enjoyed anytime of the year by people of all ages. The purpose in creating these CDs is for babies, but the delightfully different approach and sounds of gurgling and cooing are most appealing and relaxing. The Christmas songs are quickly recognized, but the pace at which they're presented, along with familiar baby sounds makes for good listening. The American Pediatric Association presented a detailed report just last week telling of the very negative effects of too much TV viewing on children under the age of two years. Too much was defined as more than a half-hour daily. This CD series definitely presents a viable option for parents wanting stimulation for their babies.





5 out of 5 Doves

This is good music for anyone wanting to listen to something different. The focus is babies of course, and the sweet sounds of baby gurgles and coos, along with the well played music all make for a wonderful experience for playing anytime for your child. The American Pediatric Association released a report just last week, stating the very negative effects of television on children under the age of two. I definitely see this type of musical material as a counterpoint to parents wanting to stimulate their babies, without loading their brains with images on the TV screen. This CD therefore, is highly recommended.
