Name Your Tune Personalized CD -- Review and Giveaway

Win a personalized music cd for your child! To find out how, keep reading...

I'm one of five children, and I have three children of my own, so I know how challenging it can be for a parent to make each child feel special. One great trick is to personalize each child's things. Personalization lets everyone know that the object belongs to that child, and that child alone -- and it gives children a special feeling to see their name printed out everywhere.

When The Pea was about two years old, my in-laws bought her a wonderful gift -- a personalized cd, which featuring songs singing her name. The Pea absolutely loved it, and she still likes to listen to it today. My in-laws bought that cd at Harrod's in England, and they never got around to having one done for 3Po or Jammy, so they've always been a bit jealous of The Pea for having special songs on a cd. So I was delighted when Name Your Tune , an online destination for personalized gifts, contacted me offering to send me a personalized cd to review.

The Basics
Name Your Tune is a kids' music cd featuring well-loved children's songs, with a twist -- each song is personalized with your child's name. You and your child get to hear the musical artist sing your child's name multiple times throughout each song -- over 80 times in the whole cd. There are over 4200 names you can choose from, including different pronunciations of the same name (for example, Reegan and Raygan), so chances are you'll find your child's name on that list. You can even specify multiple names on the cd, which is what we did for 3Po and Jammy.

Here's what the creators of Name Your Tune have to say:
Name Your Tune is an exciting new children's music compilation that is made-to-order and personalized for each child. The child's name is the feature part of every song making this CD all about them! The songs are familiar and much-loved tunes for children, parents and grandparents and are a great way to learn and have fun together.

The Bongga
Finally! A personalized kid's music cd that you can order online! No more hoping the in-laws get the opportunity to make the 2-hr. journey to Harrod's in London! I love the fact that you can incorporate multiple names -- this makes it great for parents with multiple kids on a budget. Our sample cd was personalized for both 3Po and Jammy, so all the odd-numbered songs sang 3Po's name, and all the even-numbered songs were for Jammy. The musical artists were great, and their names were pronounced very clearly so the kids could tell when their names were being sung. They had lots of fun listening, singing along, and dancing!

Best, best, best of all, Name Your Tune really does make children feel special. You should have seen 3Po's face light up when he first heard his name sung on the cd. His look of surprise and delight was absolutely priceless.

The Blah
The tunes on the cd are timeless children's classics -- which means they're probably more suited to toddlers and young preschoolers. I'd love another edition with more modern, edgier kids' tunes that they can keep listening to, even as they get older!

The Bottom Line
Name Your Tune makes a wonderful present for any child. Each song will make your child feel special every time he or she hears it!

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
