Over the years i have seen many brands come and go, but this one has created quite a stir.

Huxbaby launched at Kids In Style this August and quickly became a sought after brand for babies. I was one of many that pounced on the brand in the hope of bring Huxbaby to our virtual shelves and thankfully that is exactly what i have done.

Huxbaby have designed a range of baby clothing and accessories that are modern, unisex and cool!

Huxbaby organic unisex rompers, tees, bibs, drop pants and leggings are available in a range of styles and colours that adults will love. Best of all they are soft and comfy for all day wear and practical as well. They also have beautiful leather moccasins that come in a gift box and a range of stunning baby blankets.

The thing i found the hardest with the Huxbaby range was deciding what to order…….. so i pretty much ordered the whole range.

Huxbaby is one of those brands that looks great online, but it’s even better in real life. Don’t just take my word for it, you can order it online now and it will make a gorgeous baby Christmas gift.

Get into the groove with Rockabye Baby lullaby renditions of Madonna 1

Who else grew up listening to Madonna cranked on their stereo?

I remember endless hours sitting in my bedroom with the ‘like a virgin’ on vinyl, cranked as loud as it would go!

Madonna is an American singer-songwriter who released her debut album ‘Madonna’ in 1983. She had a series of albums which were hugely popular including ‘Like A Prayer’ and ‘Erotica’. Her music videos were bold and sometime controversial! She had a string of number one hits including “Like a Virgin”, “Papa Don’t Preach”, “Like a Prayer” and “Vogue”.

Madonna has sold more than 300 million records worldwide and is recognized as the world’s top-selling female recording artist of all time by the Guinness World Records so no wonder Rockabye Baby have added her to their collection of lullabies. This cd is packed full of all Madonnas hit songs including;

Lucky Star

Material Girl

Like a Virgin

Ray of Light

Express Yourself

Vogue

Papa Don’t Preach

Into the Groove

Holiday

Like a Prayer

Borderline

Crazy for You

Like all Rockabye Baby cds these tunes have been transformed into beautiful instrumental lullabies to help your little rocker get a good nights sleep. Madonna, along with the entire range of Rockabye Baby lullaby cds is available on line now for $29.95.

Who doesn’t cherish a good nights sleep?


Are you a fan of The Flaming Lips?

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 1983.

Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock.  They are renowned for their unusual song and album titles—such as “Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles”, “Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)” and “Yeah, I Know It’s a Drag… But Wastin’ Pigs Is Still Radical”.

They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. I personally got to see The Flaming Lips play at the Big Day Out 2004 in Adelaide and in true The Flaming Lips style the show went off with a bang!

I have to say i was a little surprised when Rockabye Baby announced they were expecting and it was The Flaming Lips that they were transforming into the latest lullaby cd.  Now that i have listened to the lullaby cd, i can honestly say i love it!  With a range of cool tracks including Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt.1, The Yeah Yeah Yeah song and Do You Realize? all featuring on the new album.

Rockabye Baby are the only choice when it comes to rock lullabies.  They transform timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies.  This is the perfect way for you to introduce your little rocker to the music you love.

As you know at A Little Bit of Cheek we stock the entire series and they are all available in store now for $33.95 plus you can listen to samples of the tracks on our website before you buy.


Are you looking for an Island in the Sun?

Perhaps you are a fan of Buddy Holly, the song that is!

I am talking about Weezer the American alternative rock band which formed in 1992. They have released nine full-length albums, six EPs, and a DVD and sold over nine million records in the United States to date.

Now Weezer has been transformed from timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies.

That’s right, Rockabye Baby has a new baby…. Weezer!

Guitars and drums have been traded for soothing mellotrons, vibraphones and bells, and the volume is turned down from an eleven to a two. 

The band is best known for their successful singles “Buddy Holly”, “Undone – The Sweater Song” and “Island in the Sun” all of which have made it onto the Rockabye Baby lullaby cd.

Plus a range of other hits including; 

My Name is Jonas, Susanne, Say it Ain’t So, Across the Sea, Beverly Hills, El Scorcho,  In the Garage, The Good Life and Only in Dreams.

 

So why not add Weezer to your Rockabye Baby collection….. I am sure your little rocker will LOVE it!


Are you a fan of Black Sabbath or Kanye West? 1

Rockabye Baby! has a few new releases that are now available in store.  As you know at A Little Bit of Cheek we stock the entire Rockabye Baby range.  Personally i am not a fan of Kanye West, nor do i think he rocks however i do know he has a lot of fans.  So if you love ‘Gold Digger’ ‘Good Morning’ and ‘Homecoming’ just to name a few then you will want to introduce your little one to this lullaby cd.

For all the Black Sabbath fans i think your going to love this cd.  Once again Rockabye Baby has transformed timeless rock songs from Black Sabbath such as ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ ‘Wicked World’ and ‘Sweet Leaf’ just to name a few into beautiful instrumental lullabies.

This is the perfect way to share your love of rock music with the little rocker in your life.


Who loves Bon Jovi?

I am sure there is a few die hard Bon Jovi fans still out there and with the up and coming tour to Australia this is your chance to fall in love with them all over again. 

Well it seems in between being the drummer in Bon Jovi, Tico Torres has been very busy.   

Apparently he noticed all the hip parents but the kids all looked the same – nothing new.  He felt that something was missing – something different.  Later on, the rest of the Band members were having kids themselves, the subject started many discussions.  The usual baby pastel colours – it is not something that everybody wants and so…. Rock Star Baby was born.

With good quality, timeless cuts in mind, a collection was created. A product that like the Band, the Arts can out last fashion – still remaining very cool. Although at that time he did not yet have a baby – he is very much a family man and this was definitely something to look forward too.

Using the true colours of Rock – black & white with shades of grey in between – designs were created with these cool kids in mind.

As Tico says “Every baby is considered a Star”.

At this stage A Little Bit of Cheek is stocking dummies, dummy clips, bottles and a rubber duck but if this brand proves to be popular we will endeavor to stock more of the Rock Star Baby range.
