Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be Ethan?

September 26, 2011

We love music in our house – I’ve been trying out all sorts of new CD’s from the Library trying to find some good ones that help to teach the kids the basic kids songs like, ‘If You’re Happy and You Know It,’ and ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm.’

I came across ‘Name Your Tune’ Personalized CD’s and thought about how great of a gift this would be for the kids.

I love the first few songs especially. They’re really upbeat and fun, and I love how it doesn’t sound like they some how worked the name into the music – they actually sing the name right along the songs…

A few of my favorites:

Little Ethan Had a Farm, and Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to be Ethan!

The CD starts getting a little off for me with Head and Shoulders (knees and toes) – where the woman has a big accent. I usually just skip over this song – but it saddens me that this song is kind of ruined by that – because it’s such a good song normally.

The rest of the CD starts winding down after that and getting to more softer, but still good and creative songs – and it finally ends with an instrumental lullaby.

It’s something that Ethan will enjoy right now and continue to enjoy until he can no longer associate with ‘kids’ music… haha!

I Kind of really wish that I had gotten this CD for Andrew, because he’d have such a kick out of it playing his name instead!  I’m really looking forward to getting the 2nd CD because there are several songs from my childhood on there.

They have over 4800 names to choose from, and even the different phonetics of each spelling of name.  You can personalize your CD with the name spelling, and a personal message.

  1. This is SO cool! and I can’t believe they have my son’s name (Pierson) 🙂 Now I am definitely getting this for him, it’s hard to find anything with his name on it. So exciting! I bet he’ll get a kick out of it once he can understand.

    cute idea.

  6. This is a wonderful idea! My niece absolutely loves to have personalized things (like books that are personalized with the child’s name), so I think I will get this for her for Christmas.

  7. This is an adorable idea. My daughter would love it!

  8. Mandy Kauffman says:

    So cute!! My little guy loves his music. Having it sing his name might blow his mind…haha

  9. Oh man, my daughter would LOVE this. She loves music of any kind!

  10. This is awesome! What a great gift idea.

  11. Sonya Morris says:

    My little one would enjoy this! She loves music!

  12. I’m going to see if they have my daughter’s name!

  13. We did this for both of my boys and it is a BIG hit in our household!

  14. MichelleS says:

    I should try this for my daughter; her nickname is “boogie” because whenever, wherever she hears music she “boogies”.

    aw this is so cute.. when i was little my brother got me a book with my name in it.

  16. Oh my gosh, I love this company. We have this CD for my son and last year for the holiday season I bought one for every child on my list. My son loves it too, and alternates favorite songs from it, with Little (name inserted here) had a Farm being his staple favorite. They have great customer service, will add a name if it’s not on their list (we did this) and the quality of the disc is just fantastic. I love Name-That-Tune (can you tell? 🙂 ).
