Review: Rand McNally's Car Karaoke
Check out this neat new product that Rand McNally has begun producing as a line of Boredom Busters for the traveling family!
We were given the opportunity to review the Car Karoke set, Volume 1. The boys and I have had lots of fun with this, both singing along with the songs and goofing off with the inflatable microphone that is included. Several of the songs the boys already knew, but some they learned as they listened to me sing along. Of course, all of the songs are easy to catch onto, and we were all singing together in no time. Though not performed by the original artists, these songs are well done in the original style. Volume 1 includes the following songs:
I'm A Believer
Twist and Shout
Stand By Me
Take Me Home Country Roads
Build Me Up Buttercup
America the Beautiful
The Ants Go Marching
She'll be Comin' 'Round the Mountain
I've Been Workin' On the Railroad
Best of all, as we sang along together, this CD also prompted us into conversation about something they knew about the songs or for me to tell them a story related to the song. Not only was this fun, it helped us learn more about each other and relate to each other!
I highly recommend this Car Karaoke or any one of the Boredom Busters for your next family trip!
