I'm a bit of a Spotify addict. Every piece of tech in the house capable has Spotify installed on it. I love music and I have long playlists that I like to listen to during my day while I'm blogging or in the evening while I'm gaming.
If I don't have any content that I want to write up then I let Eldest use Spotify on my old laptop (which she uses for work sometimes). We like very different types of music she likes 1 Direction (who I thought were the wanted this one time...), Katy Perry and a few other that I am too old to know about apparently.
Rather than have her mess about on my playlists and risk her deleting a playlist so good that it would make me emosh out about it if it were deleted or edited she uses an app call My Songs.
It has a bright yellow logo so she knows that is hers and can't get it confused with anything else on there.
Eldest clicks this little yellow square and now has access to a lot of kid friendly pre-made playlists.
Once you enter the app you are presented with a child friendly navigation system. I didn't have to explain anything to Eldest and she is only 7.
I think the two with great relevance to right at the moment is Halloween playlists and the Christmas ones. So once you have gone into your chose categories this is what it will look like if there is more than one playlist available.
You have the option to subscribe and share each playlist which means if you have a social little one then they can pass their favourites along to their pals OR you can pass them on to your own parenty friends when they need some tracks to keep the kids happy.
I think it is a great alternative to the somewhat outdated CD and still give the parents a great deal of control over what they listen to. You will have to check some playlists as they do have a few tracks on there that aren't going to be for everyone like Nicki Minaj.
With the festive season coming up this will actually be our choice over the radio or any of our CD's.
If you need further prompting - have this track which you can find on the album My Favourite Movie Songs -
