2012 Holiday Gift Guide: A Very Kindie Christmas

It’d be a vapid time waste for me to wax poetic again about the albums you and your young children should own, so here’s how we’re going to do it for this Very Kindie Christmas Gift Guide. I’m going to break out CDs based on personality traits of children, some obvious, some ridiculous but allowing me to squeeze more album titles into this post.

  • Best Children’s CD for hip hoppers: Secret Agent 23 Skidoo Make Believers

I could go on and go.

2012 was another superb year for indie kid’s music (hell, even the Grammy Awards took notice, finally) so if you are ready to take the plunge into a world were substance > style but where style is not sacrificed one bit, then start anywhere on that list above.
