One of the great things about being a mom is being able to join your child in some of the things that bring them such great joy. Like blowing bubbles outside. Or building sandcastles at the beach. Or dancing and singing along to one of the many fun songs for toddlers and kids. The only problem with that last one, though, is that sometimes our kids can get too attached to one particular song, and then it starts running through your head over... and over... and over again.
I bet you even know which song I'm referring to, because it just popped into your head this minute, right? Yep, it's the ridiculously popular "Baby Shark." The super-catchy tune has been around for a year and is still going strong, both in the fast original Pinkfong version, which sounds like it belongs in a hip downtown toddler club, or the slower version from Super Simple Songs that includes a cute animation. It's even inspired a #BabySharkChallenge dance trend that began in Indonesia and made its way over to this side of the globe, per Forbes.
But if you're looking for an alternative to the endless rounds of "Baby shark, doo-doo-doo, doo-doo doo-doo-doo," there's a huge variety to choose from. Some are traditional favorites, while others are newer; there are even some grown-up pop songs in there that kids can enjoy listening to as well.
Get out your Bluetooth or tablet, load up these tunes, and get ready to leave the doo-doo-doo-doo-doo behind as you and your kids hit the dance floor. (Or the family room floor. Whichever works.)
