You can listen to their lead single in free mp3 format- "Wavy Lane" by the Rattles.

My kids were lucky enough to receive and album to check out. They really seem to dig it. They love listening to music and it has been added to their rotation so I hear it coming out of their room whenever they play it. We checked out the The Rattles Website together and they have a few things that caught my kids' attention. There are free coloring pages to print and they can move the mouse over pictures and see changes in the "band members." The Disc also includes a bonus music video which the kids love!

The Rattles Band was created by Tony Caio, an award winning animation director, to give parents and their children a family friendly musical experience they all can enjoy. Now you have a chance to win one of three Rattles CDs!

Thanks for visiting my blog. It's funny that your post and giveaway is about music. My kids LOVE music. They get it naturally, both mom and dad are musicians.

I visited the Rattles Website! Wavy Lane - FUN! Loved it and I know my kids will too. We are Big Beatles fans.

When they have their turnm on the computer - I will let them visit the website.
