Ambient Noise. Johnson And Johnson’s Soothing Sound Mixer. Tools For Better Sleep

I stumbled across this on RedFlagDeals this morning, originally posted because of the free lullaby offered on the site. What I found more interesting is the Soothing Sound Mixer (click Tools for a better sleep, top right) that lets you create your own background noise from a set of available sounds like rain falling, heartbeats, traffic among many other options. You can even mix various sounds together, control the volume, schedule a time for it to turn off, save and share your creations.

For those curious about the lullabies, they are Lullaby and Goodnight, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Hush Little Baby, Rock-A-Bye Baby and All The Pretty Horses and can be found here.

Putumayo. You’ve Seen The CDs At Starbucks. Now You Can Follow The Blog

Putumayo kids will expose your kids to world music and culture in a safe, pleasant musical environment

I’m sure many of you have come across albums from the Putumayo series at one time or another, those world music compilation CDs with the colorful covers and fun artwork. While I see them all the time I have to admit that I haven’t listened to many of them. The one exception would be the Caribbean Party album which was quite good, and whose selection of tracks was far less generic than I’d expected for this type of compilation album.

Anyway, it seems the Putumayo series has really taken to the web of late. My initial online contact was through a link to their new blog, but quickly turned to the Putumayo Kids website. The number of available children’s albums is actually quite extensive and could serve as an interesting gift option next time you need to pick up something small on your way to visit friends.
Example albums at Amazon here.
