Consumer Critique: Play Date - We All Shine

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Award-winning kindie music duo Play Date invites kids to get sweet, get silly, get moving, and join the party with the July 24th release of their second album of empowering, positive songs, We All Shine.

The album is full of the positive attitude that comes through strongly as husband-and-wife team Greg Attonito and singer/songwriter Shanti Wintergate work together on a project full of optimism.

Says Shanti Wintergate, "It's important to Greg and myself that we convey a sense of sweetness and the care that we feel for each other in every song.  Treating one another with love, care, and compassion is one of the most important things that children -- along with the rest of us -- can learn."

Like most of the other kid-friendly CDs I enjoy, this album has touches of a variety of genres, include rock, dance, and pop. They also add a unique lighthearted touch with brief adds touting the importance of fruits and veggies - a message that comes across as cheekily positive, not preachy. My girls thought they were funny, but true, and they found the songs irresistibly danceable.

We All Shine will be available as a CD at,,, and select independent record stores.  The album will also be available for digital download on iTunes,, and all major online outlets.
