My Thoughts: Overall, my family enjoyed this product. This would be a great addition to any child's music collection. I was happy to find that the CD case is child friendly, made of 100% recycled materials, most of which is paper. No worries about shattered plastic cases.  The songs are age appropriate with fun topics. Though shorter than average radio songs, these were long enough to keep my daughter entertained. She danced to all of them. Of the nine songs included on this CD my favorite is "Apple of My Eye" a sweet track that me and my daughter slow danced to. I think this has become our special "Mommy and Me" song that we will keep singing in the years to come; Or at least until she hits those dreaded teen years. I could sing it to my husband too but, as a man, he runs from my mushiness.
Also included with the CD is an attractive pullout that you could use as a poster since one side features all 4 members as well as a video playable on your computer.
