I am one day and 6 hours into a 4 day, 1200 mile, 18 hour experience alone in the car with my 16 month old. We have listened to (and I have sung along to) the same Raffi album (singable songs for the very young) roughly 11 billion times. Please share some additional downloadable options for toddler friendly audio that will help keep dad sane. She only has about a dozen words, so she won't be doing that much in the way of engaging, but she does find singing along by me to be entertaining.
I want to be able to play and sing for my 13 month old. Difficulty level: four key baby piano. [more inside]
Psy just blows it out of the park with the really young female crowd apparently, or is it a selection bias of sorts? You know what I'm sayin'! [more inside]
Our almost-three-year-old loves Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" video (AKA "the fruit video"). Any suggestions for fun visually-creative videos? [more inside]
I'd like to get my soon-to-be 3-yr-old nephew an mp3 player, preferably with external speakers, and external SD card slot. A previous thread here suggested the SweetPea, but there seems to be a lot of debate about the quality of the current model. The Sansa Shake was also mentioned, but seems to be out of production. The others I've looked at seem to be less than impressive. Any current suggestions?

I want to introduce my 2.5 year old daughter to songs & tunes that will stay with her for the rest of her life. When she was born, I used to sing to her Ringo’s "Good Night" as her first lullaby, and recently when she found it on ‘her Youtube’, she was astonished & happy to rediscover it. I want to feed her with many more great Beatles tunes to grow up with, as well as any and all other great & necessary melodies. [more inside]

I'd like my daughter to grow up on good music. I'm looking for stuff that both of us can enjoy together. Me: early 30s, Her: 2. She loves "All I Want Is You" and "Anyone Else But You" from the Juno soundtrack. Good start! Any more recommendations? [more inside]
