    Fun to dance to!

    We can't get enough of this tape at our house! I remember some of the songs from the playground with clapping games and jumping rope. My daughter loves the ''Name Game'' and ''Mary Mack.'' I recommend this tape for kids and parents who love to shake it up a little (or a lot).
