Ever since time began we, as a species, have been rocking our little ones gently each and every night. Indeed it is arrogant of us, as 21st Century parents to assume it is us who have 'invented' the lullaby. Cast your mind back, what song did your parents or grandparents used to sing with you every night? My mum always sang 'Mockingbird' to me whilst my Dad favoured a more, shall we shall, broadminded approach, his favourite rugby song!

It is no secret at Jellybeans Music that I love bubbles probably as much as babies and toddlers. I love watching the tiny babies focus on the bubbles swirling above their heads. I never tire of toddlers trying to catch and blow them and hearing early talkers say the word 'ubble, ubble' as soon as they see me, still gives me goosebumps. But did you know that I use bubbles not just because I love them but because they are a fanastic early years development tool?
