Happy Kids Songs {A Review}


Happy Kids Songs is a company that teaches music to happiness and success through the magic of music.  They have 8 award winning albums- each with 5 songs.

I received 3 albums, they are:

  • Friends & Sharing (Vol.1)
    • Sailing on the Seven Cs
    • Everybody Wants to Find a Friend
    • Sharing Friends
    • Happy as Happy Can Be
    • Together

The albums are available as MP3 downloads for $4.99 each and the workbook is $13.95.

Music is such an influential part of people life. According to Neuroscience research, music is one of the most complex things we can do.  In short, and my favorite part of this experiment is that they showed that songs carry a tremendous ability to provoke emotional responses.  Music is so influential. 

So don’t you want your children to listen to music that is going to be a positive influence on them?

Dr. Mac and Brian Mann are the creators of Happy Kids Songs.

Both of them are singer/ songwriters.

Dr. Mac is also a child psychologist, school consultant, lecturer, award-winning songwriter, and writer and director of music for the PBS hit, Jay Jay the Jet Plane.

The songs are geared toward kids ages 3-8. They can work for younger and older. 

I loaded these songs onto my phone and we would listen to them in the car, during the day as background music and sometimes we would just turn them on and dance.  My 5 year old boy loved most of them.  He did decide on his favorite ones and they are the more upbeat songs.  My 9 year old did not choose a favorite and said some of them were just not her style or too young for her.  I did notice her singing along occasionally.  Also the some of the songs seemed to get stuck in our heads.  With songs like this, it was a good thing.

The workbook was fun and a way to really drive the message of the songs home.  The workbook is not necessary but it was such a great item to have.  It has the words to the songs as well as an activity for each one.  There are a total of 8 albums and we only have 3 of them.  So there are many unused pages in our workbook, they can be used when talking about the traits and characteristics they emphasis. Or if we purchase the other albums.
